Harley's 21st Birthday ~ Davy Jones ~ LOVE Peanut Butter

Good 33º snowy morning. Snow mostly melted yesterday by afternoon....

Before it did the geese were just sitting out in it!

Today is Harley's 21st birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY my old cranky kitty! Of course my vet said if I was 140 years old I'd be cranky too!

Here he is in one of his favorite spots (the other two being the back of my chair when I sit at the computer and the other is my lap when I'm in my comfy chair in the front room) ....

The sun comes in the dining room window and he gets all warm and snuggy!

**Retraction** The coffee I bought Tuesday at Target was not 'strawberry chocolate' it is called 'El Salvador Buena Vista'

This video came from Cyndi Morneo....OMG cute!!

Here is a very interesting interactive 2010 census map my friend Judy Duvalle sent me.... hover the cursor over any state and then county and the stats pop up. You can zoom in on specific areas and get more detailed information. See the + and - at the top of the page.

So, between 9pm (when I was fully awake) and 1am (had to let Maggs out to pee) it snowed again!

It seems to be melting already. Oh wait! Snow is coming down again! Our summit is snowed in. NO movement and on the California side as well at Hilt...

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Thursday. Ciao.

Peanut Butter Lover's Day

That kid had a ball! And on a spoon right out of the jar is my favorite way to eat peanut butter!!
1895: The Kellogg brothers patented the process of preparing peanut butter with steamed nuts. Today the nuts are roasted, and the peanut butter is much tastier.

.... and

National Pig Day
Proud to be a pig!

My older than Harley Vinnie sends Birthday Greetings to him. :) Vinnie doesn't want it known that he's well over 140, has slowed down but still going strong. :)

Peanut better day is right up my alley. They make a peanut butter pie in the Osarks that just can't be beat.

Go Harley, Go! XO E.

I couldn't agree more, T, about peanut butter, in fact I just purchased a Betty Crocker Reeces's Dessert Bar Mix! Can't wait to try it. xo
