Corn Snow ~ Dead Mailbox ~ Kahlua Cheesecake

Good 28ยบ frozen (again) morning. I just went out to say good morning to Mr. & Mrs. Gan-dar and Mr. & Mrs. Mal-ard and there is corn snow all over the ground! Clouds are moving out, so that must be the extent of today's excitement!

So, yesterday I get a call from my pal, PJ (Pat & Dave) who is in Arizona for a couple of months. She said there was a message on her answering machine from the Sheriff's Dept that someone had taken out their mailbox in a traffic collision. She wanted me to go check it out and see if there was any other damage. First picture shows where the mailbox was, the spot where the post landed, and the spot in the bushes where the mailbox landed......


I gathered the items and along with part of a hubcap, glass, and two empty mini bottles of vodka... put them in one place... when I took the picture, the empty vodka bottles were still in my pocket .. along with a letter that had been in the mailbox.. a Christmas card with a note attached (all wet and torn now) from a neighbor who had gotten the mail by mistake. PJ and Dave get their mail delivered to a mail station, not their box.


Maggie kept an eye on me and wondered why I was walking around by the road....
Of course she wasn't looking at me when I took her picture!

Just past my driveway is a curve, PJ & Dave's driveway, and for some reason idiots wrapped around morons (I LOVE that Jeannie!!!!) must say to them self, "Look, a curve ... let's go faster!" This is especially true if it's been raining or the road is icy. Duh. Anyway in the message from the Deputy he said the driver will be paying for a new mailbox. Damn straight!

This is too funny.... not only are a majority of my friends named 'Pat' but this video is of Pat the Cat.
Just a hint for those young ladies out there, if you are going to publish a video with yourself in it, make sure you are wearing undergarments! This gal did, somewhat.... more is needed!


Historically this date... if only that could be with Congressmen and Senators!!!

1964 – The government of Italy asks for help to keep the Leaning Tower of Pisa from toppling over.
..............personally, I think we need help to keep our government here, in the good old U S of A, from toppling over. Get that Socialist OUT of the WHITE HOUSE!
