TBT ~ Raven w/ Quills Stuck In His Head ~ Artist Moran ~ Pineapple Pudding Pie

Good 45ยบ clear skies morning.

Happy Throw Back Thursday... Here is Brian with his "hippy hair" and Kristen in the 'table tent' at Grandma  & Granddaddy's house... 1972:

That is my teddy bear she's holding. It was given to me by my Aunt Agnes when I was born. He's still with me, upstairs in the cedar chest!

This is another amazing video... a wild raven perches on a fence of a human's farm and squawks for help because he has porcupine quills stuck in the side of his head.

Yesterday morning Ted Evans of Evans Pest Control came out. His company info:
Pest Control, Weed Control 541-772-4541
2590 Table Rock Rd, Medford
Ted has been coming out here and spraying my roads and around the out buildings and barn for a number of years. If you need his weed or pest services, I highly recommend him!
Yesterday he sprayed all my garden weeds, creek weeds/grass, and berry bushes. He's thorough and works fast. He was here just over an hour.

Here's a couple of Oregon vanity plates:

May 22nd
National Vanilla Pudding Day

Pineapple Pudding Pie from Patty.....   :o)
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.
