Floating ~ Optical Illusion ~ Red Cross ~ Bruiser ~ Pineapple Pie ~ Pudding Day

Good 36º ice on the barn roof morning.

We had rain on and off all day yesterday. Got about 1/4". 60% chance today of more. Satellite view looks busy...

This is interesting... how to make someone look like they are floating....

Strange, but can you tell me which direction this car is facing....?

Yesterday I told you I was going to make a donation to the Red Cross for the Oklahoma tornado relief. Here's my receipt. The site I put on my blog yesterday is easy to navigate. Give your credit card number and voilá.

Dear Susan,
Thank you for your donation.
Donors such as you make it possible for the American Red Cross to reach out with the capability and compassion that embraces those affected by disaster in their hour of need. We are deeply grateful.

Pineapple pie from Patty.....

Mix in large bowl one large can of crushed pineapple (I used the 20 oz size) and one large instant vanilla pudding box. Stir well, spoon into graham cracker crust. Refrigerate. Top each slice with dollop of Cool Whip and a Maraschino Cherry!

This is REALLY good.... easy.....

On line there are many variations of this. Some use an 8oz  can of pineapple and a small instant pudding and 1 cup of sour cream.. one called for 2 boxes of pudding and 8oz pineapple .. one called for 1 small box of pudding, 1 cup cool whip, 1 cup pineapple yogurt... Mine is YUMMMY but I think a smaller can of pineapple would make it set up stiffer and next time I make it I'll put in the sour cream too.
