Bowling, Cannabis, TV,

I really wasn't in the mood to go bowling, don't know why, but we went anyway and I had two of the best games I have had in a long while. 186, 131, 187. Not only that, I got a turkey which everyone said was appropriate because it is Thanksgiving. Not quite sure what happened in the middle there, Nothing wanted to go where I threw it.  However, my average went from 138 to 146. We also took  maximum points off the other team.

Don't really know the other team members yet, only bowled with them once before, but enjoying  their company. One of them was telling me about the cannabis he buys which is, apparently, quite a bit stronger than I get on prescription. However, from what they say, the prices are quite a bit stronger as well. Don't think I could afford them at all. Thinking seriously about whether I can afford the stuff I get now. I wish the government would get off it's rear end and give a Drug Identification Number to cannabis and then maybe our insurance would pick up the tab.

Finished off our turkey breast for supper, still tasted good. Watched Jeopardy as usual. I am dreading when Alex Trebek  has to quite because of his cancer. Won't be the same show at all. Later we watched the 2018 Royal International Nova Scotia Tattoo. Incredible show. Missed some of it so hope we get a chance to see it again.  I remember being taken to see a Royal Military Tattoo in London many years ago. It was brilliant and these from Nova Scotia are no different.

I was looking through some recipes I had saved but never tried and thought this one sounded good.

  1. Well, look at you go, Bowling Queen!! Don't think I've ever bowled over a 100 in my life:)

    I agree about Jeopardy... it will be a different show... but hopefully for not for another long time...

    1. Well, I don't suppose you have ever bowled 5 pin Mark. Although they say it is more difficult. To me the large balls were too heavy in 10 pin.

      Unfortunately Alex Trebek has kind of announced that he doesn't have a lot longer.

  2. I'm glad you went bowling because it sounds like you had a good time overall. I know what you mean about the cost of the pot...it is very costly which sucks. My hubby says it's still cheaper to get on the street but they don't give out oils. Poor Alex Trebek...just when I was saying he is lucky and gets the better treatments because he has deeper pockets, his cancer returned...I hang my head low in shame. He is a decent and good man in the entertainment field. It will be hard to replace him. Let me know when might be his last day...can you imagine the guests on his show? They will be emotional for sure.

    1. Yes, I did enjoy it Birgit, especially getting such good scores. My friend at bowling is buying CBD oil locally apparently, but the prices sound horrific. Yes, it is so sad about Alex Trebek. He does seem like a very decent guy, well of course he is a Canadian LOL.

  3. The honey, orange and ginger sound amazing together.

    1. I thought so Ivy, gotta try it, but then I have lots of recipes I have to try, sigh.
