As the world turns

Here we are back at the food show. See those numbers on the ceiling? Every number represents about 100 vendors just dying for you to try their product.This year a third floor was added for natural and organic foods. We normally do it in 2 days but we had to return on the third morning to finish up. I tasted more sodas ,teas, flavored waters, energy drinks,natural and organic than I care to remember. We are partial to the cheeses, olive oils and olives themselves. I think of a good olive oil as I would a fine wine.When you taste one you like it goes to your head ,honest.This years favorite was Ariston. Their oil and balsamic vinegar are to die for. After walking up and down these aisle we were exhausted and couldn't wait to get back to our rooms for a quick nap before going to supper. Can you believe after nibbling for 9 to 10 hours we still managed to eat.
Waiting in my room was my buddy Champignon,yes, he was able to make the trip. He managed to jumped into the suitcase at the last minute. He too found the big city exhausting and crawled into bed for a little siesta himself.
Well back to reality,yesterday Jiggs and I went to the urologist but as it turns out that was really an appointment to get an appointment. Monday he is scheduled for a biopsy and then the results will be in 5-7 days. Being a positive person I am only thinking good thoughts and hope that you are sending them my way too. I know these post are on the short side but,it's already 12:30 and I must get up by 6 so see you tomorrow .........said the hobbit

Did you miss me???

I'm finally getting to the point that things are feeling closer to the norm. It's been a hectic 3 weeks and I'm trying to fit this blogging thing in but, the veggies just can't be put on hold while I play with my computer. Lots has been happening with the family and I've got all my people needing my undivided attention at this moment. This afternoon I'm going to a urologist with my husband. He has had some fluctuation in his numbers since his last physical and they would like to have a closer look. I'm going for moral support. My "Jiggsy" always functions better if I'm by his side,he's such a sweety. I, on the other hand, do best when left alone.
These are the bright lights of N.Y. city. On our arrival we ate at one of my favorite places "Balthazars" We had walk about 30 blocks when I stopped to take this picture. Our hotel Le Parker Meridien was an additional 37 blocks away. The temperature was hot and steamy and with so much going on around us who, would want to sit in a stuffy old cab. Well I hate to end so abruptly but my day is chock full of must dos. I promise to be back tonight for a second post. Ayah, I missed you guys a little too..........................said the hobbit
