    • Thank you Jacquie! We buy a side of beef every year and my husband would rather have a hamburger (go figure) so I get ALL of the steak. Somebody’s got to do it. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€£

    • I want to try it on chicken too. I love bourbon chicken. Unfortunately I am not a fish eater but I bet with this sauce I could learn to like it! lol Thank you Kristi!

    • Thank you so much Kristi ❀ I have had a few bad months but I think in the last day or so my health has turned for the better. That’s as long as I don’t get this darn virus! So far all of my family is healthy. Thank you for being so caring, you are a wonderful person! Stay healthy and safe yourself along with your loved ones.

  1. Omg! Diane, I’ve lost my website. Was looking at “jetpak” to see what it was all about. Didn’t click on anything and when I went back to my sight it is gone and WordPress says I don’t have one and would I like to start one.

      • I think you need to sign into it again. That happened to me and I went to contact page and at the very bottom it says BLOG AT WORDPRESS.COM and from there I signed in and everything was OK if I remember right. It just sounds like you got logged off.

      • Tried… Even contacted them and some computer spewed out a new password as mine was not accepted. Wouldn’t take the new one either. Tried again with another bunch of garbledegook they sent as a safe password…wouldn’t take it. Bad enough my shows have dried up. Now my website has gone AWOL too? I’m so screwed
        WordPress says they will be in touch in 24 to 48 hours.

      • Aw Sue I am so sorry but have faith they will fix it. It is so frustrating when things like this happen but don’t give up hope! Fingers crossed!

      • Hope so, now went to shut down laptop and it’s in the middle of updates… Don’t know if that might be the issue but doubt it.

  2. Guess I can crawl out of bed, unusually late, and face the world, or Axie anyway. I’m self isolating, or social distancing or some such thing. Not sure of the difference but staying away from everyone. Will need milk in about a week if I’m not careful with my rationing. but seeing people from a distance when I walk Axie. That’s it. And I have 8 double rolls of toilet paper.πŸ™‚

    • Good for you! I am looking forward to the isolation but with my husband and daughter both working at the hospital and all the days I babysit my daughters kids….I’m doomed. I have a very low immune system right now. Fighting bronchiole asthma that started from a cold, acute sinus infection then this asthma episode. Barely getting through this and I can’t imagine getting the virus!

  3. I wouldn’t ever think about drinking bourbon as I very rarely drink spirits and it is too sweet for me but I like the look of this. Another one to try.

  4. Mmmmm, I have made bourbon barbecue sauce and loved it. I think I will keep this in mind for the summer when the family is here for dinner and a swim.
