A Gouda Time Was Had By All

The excitement was boiling a big pot of elbow macaroni. And the competition was the cheddar that predominated the entries.

Competitiveness was kept at a low simmer. As the votes were tabulated, everyone was on penne and noodles. Some competitiors spiraled out of control.

Yes, she won Halloween Bingo and now she's the reigning and defending champ of the Mac and Cheese Throwdown....It's Pat.

What crown will she seek (and will I create) next? Suggestions welcome.

Dessicated Frog of Death

The frog population suffered this winter. No, they are not made from dryer lint. It's the real deal.

Just Another Day at Tractor Supply...

I am now the proud owner of an EZ Read rain gauge. By default, Sue gets to enjoy it, but I don't think she'll claim ownership. The label claims I will be able to read it from 50 feet away (not with these eyes) AND - it's specially calibrated!!! (squeal!) Exciting isn't it?

Well....that's nothing compared to THIS:

Why yes, that IS the Compost Wizard Junior!

Though the temptation to own my own Peeps (baby chicks) was great, common sense prevailed (chicks and cats don't mix).

Sue got pork rinds. I got beef jerkey (teriyaki). It's been quite a day.

I may need to take a nap.

Tilly Cone

Sometimes you just need a good laugh. I don't know anything better than a dog in an Elizabethan collar.

About those poo pots. Somehow I had it in my mind that they were spelled that way due to some traditional Indian poo name, but didn't actually contain "poo." I didn't confuse it with the Zoo Poo items out there, which does contain animal poo.

Sue explained that they are named after Pooh, as in Winny. They are shaped like his little honey pots. And I'm pretty sure she told me this before and I forgot. Oh Bother!

I've been more confused than usual lately. Just ask the new kennel clients who dropped their dog off to me for a week. When I went back in the house, I noticed my shirt was on inside out. And they still trusted me with their dog.

Oh, the Sights of Spring!

If a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound...if it doesn't land?

An unusually normal a poo pot, courtesy of Sue (not Sue's poo, Sue's poo pot that she gave me. Look, none of it is made from poo, ok?!)

What does that billboard say? "Peep Drop." Yes, they drop Peeps. See, they are each wearing tiny parachutes. I don't know why we didn't go...another opportunity missed.

Another great Easter tradition - folding up the paper hockey helmet and using it as an Easter basket. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle indeed!

Yes, some look for the sign of the Groundhog. But around here, we look for the sign of the Mullet. When they make their appearances out from under the ski caps, we know the weather has turned for the better!

What's in the Road?

Lately, this has been a frequently played game while walking the dogs. Frankly, it's an involuntary game.

Yesterday went something like this:


Two hot women, SUE and LYNNE, walk toward a black and white object, dogs healing at their sides in perfect conformation.

Hey, what's that in the road?

I don't know - maybe a bag?

Hmmm....I bet you're right. But I'll go with
a box just to be different.

Good idea. Don't want anyone to think we're
a couple.

The dogs strain at the ends of the leash as they near the black and white object.
Both guesses are wrong. It's a dead cat.


What's up with the formatting? Well, I'm doing this little thing called Script Frenzy.
