acting so very strange and nothing is cooperating!

Yesterday Maggie and I went to the post office, bank, and to Ace.
Hi Dan. "Big Dan the Man!"

Today is Law Enforcement/Fire luncheon. Will report back on that

The vet called last night. Maggie has Atypical Cushings Disease as
reported back by the University of Tennessee. She will have a 'doser''
injected under her skin at the neck that will dispense one of the meds.
That will happen this week. "Atypical cushings is an abnormal
elevation of hormones, not steroin hormones like in typical Cushings. It usually has the same physical symptoms such as thin skin, bilateral alopecia (symmetrical hair loss), a pot belly, increased thirst and urination, panting. The University of Tennessee Endocrinology lab has a standard profile that tests for elevations in several reproductive hormones."

Groundhog Day
Heavenly Hash Day
1 c Mandarin oranges, drained
1 c Pineapple chunks, drained
1 c Flaked coconut
2 c Miniature marshmallows
1 c Sour cream (high quality)
1 tb Sugar (I use equivalent Splenda)
6 Maraschino cherries for the Garnish (optional)

Mix all the canned fruit, sugar and coconut thoroughly in mixing bowl. Fold in the sour cream and marshmallows. Transfer to decorative serving bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Right before serving you could garnish with a few maraschino cherries placed on the top of the salad.
