Coyotes ~ Balloons ~ Sami ~ Egg Salad w/ Guacamole ~ Constitution Day ~ Apple Dumplings

Good 48ยบ morning.

Yesterday morning I saw three coyotes in the pasture. Looked like a mom and her two babies.... "mom" was just sitting, with the appearance of boredom, while the other two were running hither and yon!

Saturday I went shopping for balloons to put on Jeannie's gate. Her birthday was the 10th and she and Bill were gone but returning home yesterday.

So then yesterday I took the balloons up to their house and tied them to their gate... (I love the Elmo one!)

I was trying to hurry, as it was about 9:30 then. Jeannie had told me they would leave 7 Feathers about 9-ish, but knowing these early birds I felt as if they would be home any time. I finished and then was going back out the road to Brian's and here come Bill and Jeannie! WHEW. In the nick of time~! I honked and waved and Jeannie had the funniest look on her face! Wish I could have caught it on film! She probably thought I had wrapped their gate in crime scene tape again! LOL

I took my door screen to Brian's and he re-screened it for me. Excellent job!

Sami is the fashion plate.... purple boots, pink skirt, orange shirt, and blue helmet ... and showing off the sparkley 'tattoos' on her right arm...

Today my friends Jim and Olga Duran are celebrating their 24th wedding anniversary. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!

and ..... Patrick Reardon's bride, Alice, is celebrating her special day..HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALICE!!

Lunch yesterday was mashed up hard boiled eggs with Kraft pepper mayo, a tomato (fresh from Charlean's friend Lenore), and a dollop of avocado dip (made with chilies) on a Franz multi-grain bun. GOOD!!!!

Later I put some of the avocado dip mixed in with the egg and ate it as a dip with celery. Again, GOOD!

Last night I thought I saw Bruiser on the front porch. He's off on one of his roaming trips I guess and has been gone a couple of days, so I jumped up and looked out... here was a little skunk at the bottom of the steps! YIKES! OMG. Go away! Cute, but good grief, that would be all we need around here! I always worry and worry when Bruiser takes off. Sure wish he'd return soon!

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