Potato Salad ~ A Dolphin Tale ~ Sloan ~ Bean Day

Good 56ยบ cloudy morning. No rain on the horizon. Looks like it has all moved north.

Sunday when I was in the kitchen making salads I noticed Baby out on the fence.
Maggie was standing under her, but didn't bark or anything.  Later when I went out on the back Maggie followed and she and Baby sniffed each other! Wow.

So..... here's the potato salad recipe...I used the fingerling potatoes, quartered them and boiled in salted water til tender. Drain & cool. In a large bowl add potatoes, chopped celery, chopped fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped 1/2 med red onion, one green bell pepper, and 3-4 quartered hard boiled eggs.....

It's true I am a diehard BF Mayo fan, but the new Kraft Mayo with olive oil and cracked pepper is DEVINE! I mixed half and half.....

Mmmm mmmm good!

Last night I watched a great movie... A Dolphin Tale...
The film was inspired by the true story of Winter, a bottlenose dolphin that was rescued in December 2005 off the Florida coast and taken in by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Winter became entangled with a rope attached to a crab trap and was rescued by an 11 year old, Sawyer, who became very attached to the dolphin. The tail had to be taken off to save the dolphin's life. Sawyer believed the dolphin would be able to swim normally if it was given a prosthetic tail. The movie stars Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, and Morgan Freeman. You will laugh. You will cry.

A special birthday today, my great nephew Sloan Plumbridge is 19 years old. Graduated from high school in Reno, NV and will be going to the UofN studying engineering. Congratulations Sloany Baloney! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! xo
