~ Globalwarmingmyass ~ Moon ~ Contrails ~ Prayer ~

Good 28º morning. Let's have a talk, Mr. Gore.... this globalwarmingshit is bunk. Just ask anyone in the Northeast ...  
or right here in So. Oregon!!!!!
Interesting sky this morning... fog and the moon and a jet plane!
I got quite a bit of house stuff done yesterday and even stacked wood on the porch. Didn't do any cooking as I had reruns in the fridge. Not a lot to tell.... I did come across more pictures I put in envelopes and will mail off to those in the pictures... some oldies ..
Then.... my neighbor's dog, Shiloh, escaped AGAIN! She ran down here with "gay abandon"!! What a sweet little girl. Her folks, Gerard and Maria, saw her escape under the fence so they were headed down here when I saw her at my gate. I sat on the porch and she tried to get into my lap. She loves hugs! Funny little sweetie.

    Dear God:

    For 2011, all I ask for is a big fat bank account and a slim body.
    Please do not mix up the two like you did last year.

    Sunset was spectacular, again... I just love the contrails. They fascinate me .. and then they too turned pinkish-orange!
    All I know. I have some squash and a pumpkin that will go bad if I don't do something with them. Think I will cook them, dice them, and mix with diced sweet potato and maybe some bacon for some kind of a room temp salad... Will see....

    National Chocolate Cake Day
    OMG, that sooooo makes me drool.
    Reminds me of family gatherings when I
    was little and my sister Marion, who was
    9 years older, and I would mix our chocolate
    cake with vanilla ice cream into a big gooey
    mess. We would be banished from the
    dining room to the breakfast room because
    we were too "gross" for everyone else!!! LOL
