Barn Cat? ~ Pond ~ Baked Scallops

Good 30ยบ clouds laying on the ground morning!
I think I have a cat living in my barn. Not sure but saw a feral cat in the pasture early this morning and he disappeared by the old dog door in the side of the barn. I think there might be a space below the stall door. If so, good for him finding a warm and dry spot to live and I'm sure the barn is a great place for mice and field critters to get into. Mr. Cat is doing me a favor.  I'll check down there later.
Yesterday I hooked up my new printer. Pretty fancy. The disc you get gives you step by step directions. Really interesting.
I will take the old printer into a repair shop, get it fixed, and then sell it.
Today is Girl Scout Day so you will see the Girl Scout cookies being sold at many markets and shopping centers. Please help the Girl Scouts and buy cookies!!!!

Maggie sniffed around....
And it got cold early... and the sunset was beautiful....
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday.
