Five for Friday


1. Happy Veterans Day Grandpa!  We will have a lot of catching up to do one day.  I’m sure Uncle Fred will have some jokes too.

2. I have a hankering for a big ol’ cheeseburger for supper tonight.  That and some onion rings and big glass of ice tea to wash it all down.  I know it’s not healthy eating but I can use it after this week.

3. I found an excellent chicken pot pie recipe that I’m gonna try this weekend.  Now I just have to see if I can actually make a pie dough.  It sure gonna be an interesting experience for me.

4. Number 3 means a market trip for me.  Maybe I got lucky on one of my lottery tickets.  I hit on one of them Tuesday when I checked them.  I won a whole $4.00!  I told the cashier I wanted my winnings in really BIG bills.  Yeh, I got a “Yanno, you’re damn crazy!“look from her.

5. Here’s another view of our weather for today for Miss Anna.  It’s a beautiful 8C (46F) out there right now.  The birds are enjoying the feeders and Mr. Squirrel is gone … for now.  I wondering where my cardinals went and where the Blue Jays are.  They will be a nice sight come winter.

  1. I have the BEST simple pie crust recipe if you want it! It is grandma-quality and stupid simple… Lemme know. Probably something I should share this time of year, huh? 🙂
