What games are you going to see in Toronto?
Blue Jays vs. Yankees - June 23 and 24

Then I fly to Milwaukee to see two or possibly three Brewers games.
Excellent. Hope you got good seats and enjoy the games.
I'm sure I will. Rogers Centre looks really cool and I can't wait to see Toronto. I'm really stoked about these trips. (Even Detroit. )

(You're from there, aren't you? Is it true that a lot of places in Toronto take American money? I know they do at the stadium...)

More groceries. You tend to run out pretty quickly when it snows.

Two new bras from Kohl's.

You know you're an old woman when you have to pass on the Warners and the Candies and head straight for the Vanity Fair.

Necessities: groceries and medicine.

Fun stuff: Star Trek Nemesis 2 disk special edition soundtrack, and Raise the Titanic DVD/Blue Ray combo (the only way to get it). I plan to give the otherwise useless Blue Ray disk to my best friend.

A Game of Thrones T-shirt for part of hubby's Valentine's present. I've also bought him a bunch of favorite candy: Mike & Ike's, cinnamon candy hearts and Hot Tamales.

(You're from there, aren't you? Is it true that a lot of places in Toronto take American money? I know they do at the stadium...)
I love Skydome (I prefer that to the Roger's Centre) and we try to get there a couple of times a year. Kingston is about 2 1/2 - 3 hours east of Toronto. They have done quite a few upgrades there over the last few years. I much prefer the 100 level for the games and try to get seats behind 1st or 3rd. 3rd base line has Toronto dugout, and 1st (naturally) the visiting team.

Our youngest daughter is currently in her 2nd year of college in T.O.

Yes, a lot of the places will take U.S. money - but right now I'd really suggest getting it changed over. The Cdn dollar has taken a hell of a shit kicking over the last month and we are no longer close to par. The U.S. dollar is worth much more now. It would probably be worth getting some exchanged.

Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions you'd like answered.

This one's not for me, but for the wife. Our youngest daughter has left the nest, so we're turning that bedroom into a room for her. Our son left a few years ago and that room got turned into an office/den for me.

(Sorry for the double post. I saw the first question and didn't see the second until right after posting the first)

I'm not sure what the name of the chair is but I can tell you it's gonna have purple fabric. Hey....it's her chair. It's pretty standard, I guess. Arm to pull for the foot rest, and the back tilts back and clicks into position. The thing she liked about this one was that the back is shaped outwards giving it more space to move. I shall attempt to post a picture when she gets it. Apparently, it may take 8 - 10 weeks to get it, depending on how many orders are ahead of us.

On the good side - this fall we are going to replace our living room furniture with La-Z-Boy. Already decided - just got to pick out what we want. Couch will be long for naps (I'm over 6') with both ends reclinable. There will be two reclining chairs. One to match the couch and the other will be different. We fell in love with La-Z-Boy when we visited my sister over New Years. Enough of the crap - time for comfort and quality. We're saving for the big set now.
