Vivia sent me some flower pictures. Don't know what kind this are but made me laugh. Monkey Flowers!!!

This is the Bruise... for sure!

Had a chat with Jennifer. She and Mike were in Selma. They had just picked up the "sad puppy" from Song Dog Kennels and Mike ran into the market for a bottle of wine so they could go home and celebrate. This 9 week old sweetie "Love Dog" was asleep in Jennifer's lap. Here is the picture of her when she was 3 weeks old... I can't wait to see her!

 The sun was setting.... first photo was 4:15pm and the second was 5:15pm..

Later... ate some reruns, watched some TV. I like the show
Elementary..  with Johnny Miller and Lucy Liu. The only thing that bugs me is his bloody English accent which makes it hard to understand his gibberish sometimes. When he talks fast or in a low voice I can't understand a word! Oh well...............
All I know. Happy Sunday. Nuff said. Ciao.

November 9th
National Scrapple Day

Scrapple is a breakfast meat product, popularly served with eggs or pancakes—or even by itself, with maple syrup. The product was originally developed to make use of pork scraps and trimmings that would have gone to waste (including the fat, heart, liver and skin). These are combined with cornmeal, wheat or buckwheat flour and spices into a mush, that is formed into a loaf. Slices of the scrapple are cut and pan fried. The result is a breakfast pattie that is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Scrapple is best known as a regional country food of the mid-Atlantic states, particularly the Pennsylvania Dutch region.

I too laugh big time at the monkey flowers. Amazing. I wonder if Lydia has ever come across them.

As you know, scrapple was a favorite of John's and his parents. I have never tasted them but I know you can buy them in the maket now.

Cute puppy.

Monkey orchids are definitely one way nature knows to put a smile on someone's face. There is another class of flowers called Monkey flowers with less distinct features- I have no idea if they are related or not.

Thank you for the happy start to the day.
