Good 49º cloudy morning.
Rain started in the early morning yesterday (1:30am) and continued all day. Still getting some drizzle about 8pm last night. Total rain received was 1/4".
Was cold enough for a fire in the wood stove. Nice. Cozy!
A site with amazing videos... Go to page 4 and watch "Bronson's Miracle"... what a wonderful story...
Yesterday I cooked down the last of the red tomatoes. Had 9 pounds.... then put them through the strainer, added garlic, onions, celery, spices, lots of fresh basil, and some Alfredo sauce....
Later Jeannie and I went to Jean's house and took her a birthday cake and flowers. We sang Happy Birthday and made her blow out the candles! Tucker and Sami enjoyed that.
Dang... got Jean with her eyes closed and the candles already out!
Then... a glass of wine with Billy and Jeannie... a Milk Bone for Chaka ... and them home to finish up the canning of the sauce. As for Monday Night Football ... looks like the Colts are going to the cellar and stay there as long as Peyton can't play!
