Good 37º morning. Rain on the radar.
Yesterday was one of those frustrating ones.... it put me in a bad mood, and whenever I am I think of the 1989 movie Steel Magnolias and how Shirley McLaine (Ouiser Boudreaux ... pronounced "Weezer) had been in a bad mood for a long time. Her exact words were, "I'm not crazy, M'lynn, I've just been in a very bad mood fer 40 years!"
Anyway, the charger on my golf cart wasn't working, I couldn't get my little laptop to log onto the wifi, and Harley was being a real pain in the whoo whoo! So, worked on the charger and got it to working. Yeah! Then I tackled the laptop. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr............................still won't log on. Harley's mood improved. Then in the late afternoon I watched Toy Story 3. That was hilarious. Made me laugh. Bad mood left!
Ok, here is an amazing piece of work. This blew me away. It's a drawing of a women from the inside out.... Watch to the end, you will be saying "WOW" like I did!

Historically this date....
1922 – Rebecca Latimer Felton of Georgia takes the oath of office, becoming the first female United States Senator.
....she was a very odd duck. She was almost 88 when sworn in and only served 1 day. The only women to become a Senator from Georgia in that state's history! Interestingly enough, she was a Dem and was in favor of lynching. She was a white supremacist. Click on her name to read more...

I made the peanut butter fudge yesterday...
The only things I did differently from the basic recipe was add a couple pats of butter and I used half milk/half cream. Addictive!
(If you missed it, the recipe is on yesterday's blog. Archives on left)
Had a few visitors yesterday out back...
Mr. Buck came back.....
He was chasing a doe away... why, I don't know!
And instead of reruns of the mac/cheese/beef/veggies I put a carton of chicken broth in a pot, added the leftovers, and made soup. It was HEAVEN!!! Really a great idea. Wonder why I never thought of that before!~
It was a pretty day with the sun playing hide and seek...
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. ICK....trip to the Doc today. Too much falling apart on this old bod! LOL
