That Time I was Cheating On My Dogs

By hanging out with these animals….

It was fun and when I got home my dogs ignored me.  So is the pain I must suffer for cutie animals 🙂

Weekend Adventures

We went out on Saturday to the Bristol area.  Did some antique shopping and had some lunch.  While at lunch this little dude (behind me) had a meltdown.  Of course, I took a picture of it!  LOL.

I really liked my sandwich.  I ordered it solely for the fact it was called ‘The Godfather’.  It was most delicious!  Afterward, the wife took me to get some Jersey Tomatoes.  Which were also very delicious.  It was a very happy produce store…the wish everyone to have a Nice Day on the way out!  Winning!!!

I’ve Been Outside Recently

So I have been working on our yard this year.  I’m doing a small Victory Garden.

Yes, I said Victory Garden.  I was raised with parents who grew up in the depression and survived WWII.  I use language like Victory Garden, Cat’s Meow and gams.  I also enjoy the styling of Benny Goodman, lol.

Last year we had a really bad mosquito problem.  It was our first year in the house so I had no idea what to expect until it happened. The mosquitoes were just awful and made it difficult to enjoy the deck and yard.  This year I’ve planted mosquito repelling plants like Citronella, Rosemary and Marigolds.  I’m also going to spray the yard with lemon juice.  This should kill off a bunch of those critters in a healthy way.  The dogs share the space with us so I have to stay away from things like pesticides.  Wish me luck!

Last night a very nasty and vivacious storm blew through our part of town.  The clouds were amazing and the subsequent rainbows (not caught on picture) were just incredible.

The rain was torrential and we missed getting any hail.  The thunder and lightning were just like the storms we sometimes get in July.  Very cool.

All in all, too bad.  The storms didn’t deter me from voting.  Got it done and the storm made it so I didn’t have to water the garden….Win Win!

Spring – It’s For The Birds

I love April.  It’s the best time to bird watch.  I’m not particularly into Ornithology but I love the colors of the birds.  All of the colors of the birds shine out in contrast to the browns and grays of winter.


I’m going back to this location next week to see what other birds are in town.  Ahhhhhh…..SPRING!
