Cat Pumpkins ~ Daylight Savings Time ~ Chocolate Martini?

Good 33º morning. Wow, warmed up a bit. Probably a cloud cover out there. One started late yesterday afternoon... 6pm:
This date reminds me of a Deputy at Temple whose license plate was "10-28 me". Gosh and I can't remember his name. A short fellow, very tenacious. Jerry nicknamed him "the dwarf of doom". Anybody out there recall his name??? Hmmm, in the middle of the night I remembered his first name was Frank.

Speaking of Department members... HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to Teri Prim and her charming husband Barry!!!

The pest control guys were here yesterday, Darren and Matt. They put bait in the mole tunnels in the front and backyards and put bait for the ground squirrels under the porch and under the house. Dang critters!

This is funneeeee....
Mexican word of the day.... Habañero:
I went costume shopping this weekend. Most of everything was sold out. I settled on a Robin Hood costume but could only find the costume and the bow so I asked the vato working there, "hey man, do ju guys HABAÑERO to complete my outfit?"

I rearranged the porch yesterday but Maggie was undisturbed by it all...
Ok, so then I found these darling cat carved pumpkins....


<my fav...

Dinner last night was popcorn with ICBINB sprayed on and grated cheese. Earlier Nancy and PJ came over. We sat on the porch and drank wine and blabbed.... It was so enjoyable. Nancy brought me a movie to watch....

A Good Year with Russell Crow...
I was enjoying it but got too sleepy to see the end, so will finish it today.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Friday. Ciao.
