Fire up the Ark! ~ Jerry ~ Georgia Sue ~ Mole vs Vole ~ Rice & Potstickers ~ The Bruise & Harley Meet

Good 43º cloudy morning. It POURED all night again. From yesterday late afternoon til now we got 2½" !!!! My creek is overflowing it's banks and the walk way to the barn is under water!

Looks like the majority of the storm is heading east...

The moon is out this morning! Yeah.

The creek behind the house has increased a lot (picture 2) since yesterday (picture 1)..


Today would have been my Jerry's birthday. My heart is heavy.

JWM 12-2-1940 ~ 2-12-2007

I miss you Dew, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. A shot of José Cuervo Gold in your honor later today!

Today is also my cyber friend Georgia Sue's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GS!!! Wish I could be there to give you a hug.

Georgia is a great lover and rescuer of dogs. This is her Poppy girl she got from the shelter.

***RETRACTION*** The following from a friend in WA...."That critter that Bruiser caught is a VOLE. not a MOLE. To identify a MOLE look at their from feet. Mole front feet are large with splayed fingers. They also have a funny nose which actually looks a lot like the front feet. NOTE: Star Nose Mole). The nose and feet on a MOLE are very bright pink in color."

Thanks Patrick. This is a mole...

and this is a vole....

The meal for the day is Uncle Ben's Mexican Infused rice and pot stickers. Mmmmmm....... I boiled the pot stickers and then sauteéd them in a little oil. (I tried putting them in the waffle iron, but a failure) Made a sauce with Tabasco Spicy Soy Sauce and BF mayonnaise. Yummmmmmmmmy!!!

In regards to the Chocolate Mousse the other day, my friend Erika said she had a "Chocolate Moose"...>

This is hanging on the wall in her house! Another friend, Trish, said a friend of hers has one too. Cute!

Yesterday Bruiser came in, Harley was napping on the chair under the dining table so Bruiser made himself comfy there too... (Harley is where the arrow is....)

Then Harley woke up and The Bruise watched him, nonchalantly walk by....
Bruiser wants to be "friends" so badly, but Harley is not committed to any new friendships!

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

Apparently my email got hacked and a video was sent out under Siouxmax. I have changed my passwords. AOL told me there had been some 'unusual activity' on that email address. Hope that stops it. Sorry.
