Weird, after I posted the photo, it wouldn't let me post any more...
Anyway, we are headed out early to the groomers, had to wait 3 weeks for this appointment! While he's being beautified, I will be in the pool, then when we get home I will finish the doggie cake I'm making, and get ready for visitors.
Griffin's littermate Gigi is coming for a reunion/birthday celebration, he will get to play with his sister this afternoon. I'm sure it will be pure mayhem!

Default Happy Thursday

Good morning. Happy birthday, Griffin!

Not much happening here. I spent last evening watching an orientation tape for jury duty, then discovered I couldn't print it. Had to call in my resident Geek, Keith.

A bit of house work and that's about it for today.

Good morning everyone:

I've been busy this morning. I've canned twelve quarts of Bread and Butter pickles. I still have to do about the same amount of Spicy Dill pickles but my leg can't take any more standing. I also have to do the wash up but I need to sit down and take a break before I attempt that. Then again, I could just leave the clean up for Betty, when she gets home.

These are the times when I do like a food processor. Most of the time I just do my own cutting and chopping. I can have it all done in far less time then using the food processor. You have get out the food processor, set it up, chop, and wash up. By that time I've been done for quite a while. But when you have this much slicing to do it is worth it.

Happy first birthday to Griffin. Make sure that Donna gives you lots of special treats.

Robin: Do you calculate your expenditures in "cruises". I'll do something like a remodel, upgrade, major appliance purchase or maintenance and say: "Well, that was about a three cruise expense."

I hope everyone has a great Summer's day.

Take care,
Mike

I like my pickles and I have been told the same by other people. My daughter said I should give her some and she'll enter them in her county fair.

If you get good cucumbers then pickling is pretty easy.

Take care,
Mike

The cukes are good, it's the blending of the correct spices that is killing me, regardless of what the recipe states, at least these FB recipes...

Well Mike if I did I just might cry. We have now encountered a broken clay pipe from the outside basement stair drain that runs under the concrete stairs to the downspouts and then into the city sewer. It's only a small section of broken pipe but its under the stairs!
So let's see flood control plus the extra concrete work we decided to just do is about 7 Carnival cruises in an OS.
Hey it's only money Time to go make some lemonade with the lemons we just got handed.
Have to keep it all in prospective my family is here and healthy and that's all that matters.

Mike, every time I have to spend any "big" $$, I think about how many cruise's we could take for that $$ ! Recently we've had to replace our AC (2 cruise's from Galveston) and our water heater (1 cruise). It's painful, but we have to keep our home up in order to cruise!
