Good 40º morning. No more rain. Doesn't look like any on the horizon either. Darn.
Pretty much looked like this all day yesterday...
And the Bruise was happy the laptop was gone from my desk...
My Mom, Margaret Laney, died on this date in 1994. She had Alzheimers. She was 89 years old. A beautiful kind and loving woman. This taken on her birthday in 1973 with Kristen and Brian.... I love you Mom and miss you so much! ♥
Yesterday was Ace for cracked corn, the vets for meds which they didn't have, and the market for tortillas and ground beef to make taquitos for Brian's Super Bowl gathering.... and cheese and beans to make a football field of guacamole dip..... and of course his fav, deviled eggs. I also spent time hooking up my new Canon printer/fax/scanner. It's wireless, associated with the WiFi. Not an easy chore for me, being just a girl! And..... the Bruise likes napping on top of it as much as he did the old one!
My high school friend Linda (Watterlond) Terror posted this on her FB page... OMG!!! Get out your Kleenex! Budweiser ad at it's best!!
Ok, now this is inventive ... a great use for a hoodie!

National Croissant Day
A rich buttery, crescent-shaped roll made of puff pastry that layers yeast dough with butter. Stories of the roll being made in the shape of the crescent of the Turkish flag, after the defeat of the Turks in the siege of Vienna in 1683, are a perpetuated myth. Recipes for croissants do not appear in recipe books until the early 1900's, according to the Oxford Companion To Food, and the earliest French reference is in 1853. The croissant is descendant of the Austrian kipfel, a crescent roll that was brought to Paris in 1938 or 1939 by August Zang, an Austrian military officer. The kipfel was ultimately interpreted into puff pastry by the French where it achieved immortality as the croissant.
