Good Morning girls....nothing happening here today. It's a non YMCA day, we only go Mon, Wed & Fri

I'm thinking of the two Karen's too. K3, in case you're reading and not up to talking....You're welcome!

Karen...hoping Tim is coping, blessing to you and family to help him cope.

On the 1-2-3 cake, you can probably lessen the calories by buying the sugar free cake mix.

The recipe below is for canned tuna which is basically what we get in Minnesota since we don't have that lovely sea next to us like the East & West coast has. I stopped buying canned when the foil packets of tuna came out, they aren't mushy like the canned. I've never had fresh tuna before, I'm sure it's delicious.

Bruce has blood test this morning, doc won't give him anymore cholesterol meds until he gets a check-up. It's been 2 years so it's time. We're both on cholesterol meds, fortunately they're cheap with our insurance.

Time to get cracking....later
