Good morning to all. I know it is going to be a lonesome weekend here with everyone gone somewhere.

Susan: I too hope Stan got a really good report. Hope you had some yummy food. I am German and grew up eating homemade sauerkraut, sauerbraten, german potato salad, knockwurst, stuff like that. We went to a german restaurant in Las Vegas and I was totally disappointed. The food was awful. They said it is owned and run by Germans, but I don't where they learned to cook. We had a german restaurant in South Bend that I am not sure is open any longer, but they had spectacular food so I think it really was the food they made in that restaurant and not the fact my grandmother cooked hers differently. They lean heavily on their beer drinkers and you know drunks have no idea what they are eating! They do have an appetizer that was spot on. It was this huge dinner plate sized soft pretzel that had different german mustards. It was terrific. When I was a little girl, my mom used to put sugar on the sauerkraut like you would cereal to get us to eat it. I think I am really the only one that still likes it. I like sweet and sour cabbage too, which is more polish. South Bend has a large middle European population of Hungarians, Polish, Germans, and such so you go to a wedding and they have these polish wedding feasts which are yummo. It is sweet and sour cabbage, sausages, mashed potatoes, green beans, a type of swiss steak, homemade egg noodles, homemade rolls. Have a wonderful time on your quilt trip. I know you will. I will say a prayer for your friends.

Jean: Have loads of fun on your trip. I am so fair skinned I burn in the shade. I think that is one of the reasons we don't walk a whole lot outside in Las Vegas when we go. The casinos are so spread out that you walk quite a distance between in the sun. I know if we take the cruise next year it is going to be globs of high numbered sunscreen for me all the time.

Everyone have a great weekend, nice trips and lots of fun!
