Today is National Fried Chicken Day!

I grew up eating fried chicken almost weekly but these days it's more of a family treat! Why does it have to be so good and so wrong?!

Does Your Hubby Hold Your Purse?

"When you're a single woman picturing the guy of your dreams, what matters a heck of lot more than how he handles a kayak is how he handles things when you're sick. And one shining example of this is how a guy deals with your purse." Source: "Will he hold your purse?" 10/04/2009.
When you're dealing with a chronic or terminal illness, you're going into the treatment room, will he hold your purse?
I can't tell you how many times my husband, The Purse Partner, has held my purse when I had to go have x-rays, treatments and such, over the last 12 years. While reading the article, I actually get very teary-eyed writing this because I remember when he was there every time a doctor told me I wasn't going to get better. My hubby would just squeezed my hand, in that reassuring way he does.
I'm so glad I married a purse holder!

Our City of North Las Vegas Has Made The News! We're Broke!

North Las Vegas, an incorporated city, just outside of Las Vegas, is broke! Now, that's not the big story. The city is now consider a disaster area.
The decision will allow the city to suspend union contracts and avoid paying scheduled salary increases.
The North Las Vegas Jail has been closed as inmates have been moved to Las Vegas and Clark County jails. There will be more layoffs of city workers, libraries and recreation center hours will be reduced. In the meantime, the state of Nevada still is considering whether to take over the city. We're not going to be seeing the light at the end of tunnel anytime soon.
