More Rain ~ TBT ~ Bruiser ~ Dentist/Elks/Kitchen Company ~ Infused Vodka

Good 43º  cold and clear morning. What a difference. I even pulled up the blanket this morning!

Wow, the rain started again about 9am yesterday. We got another 1/4" in an hour. Sprinkled mostly. This was 7am:

..... and this was a little after 9am... 

The poor dumb turkeys were standing out in the rain looking forlorn.

Happy Throw Back Thursday...
Kristen (age 2) and our Lucy girl....

Cub Scout Brian and his soapbox derby car.....

Crazy Bruiser was bored so he climbed on top of my computer.... nut!

The following from an old show hosted by John Wayne.. shared by Deewayne Honneee P-berger via Jim Harris...

The rest of the list from Greg..
I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
Age 62
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back. (Yes, the BS should be thrown back!) 
Age 64
I've learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. But if you focus on your family, the needs of others, your work, meeting new people, and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you. (I couldn't agree more!)Age 65
I've learned that whenever I decide something with kindness, I usually make the right decision.
Age 66
I've learned that everyone can use a prayer.
Age 72
I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. (Used to be when you were with a bunch of middle aged women all they talked about was their experiences with childbirth and the pain and the long hours of labor .... then as we got older the topic is arthritis, kidney stones, aches and pains, etc.... It never ends!)Age 82
I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love that human touch - holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. (Who is this, a dirty old man??? LOL)
Age 90
I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. (Oh yes!)
Age 92

I was having a problem (sensitivity to hot and cold) on my crown I had put on recently (no, not that kind!) so went to the dentist yesterday. 

We have a new dentist, Susan Wellman, really nice! She took xrays and thoroughly examined the tooth area and said there is evidence of an infection. She referred me to a "root canal specialist, and gave me a prescription for antibiotics.                    

Afterwards headed to the Elk's Lodge

for a glass of wine with GloW and John. Nice time! I had stopped by the Kitchen Company store on the way there

at Jennifer's request, as she had some of her homemade minestrone she wanted me to try. OMGOOOOOOD. Such GREAT soup Jennifer! Thank you so much!  Home, soup, chair, and one of my favorite new shows, Taxi Brooklyn
( ).

This makes me laugh, I posted the following two years ago....
Baby is a boy cat! Don't ask, but confirmed by me, a mother and grandmother, he has the necessary stuff to call him a boy! I'm still keeping his name as Baby. Since he's black and white I could call him Radio Car or Cruiser (Crew-za if we were in New Jersey!) Maybe I'll call him Baby Cruiser. or Bruiser! LOL

Bill, of Bill and Jeannie fame, decided to infuse some tequila with pineapple and jalapeño peppers. Jeannie said it was really tasty. So, I decided, since I had purchased some fresh pineapple, to infuse some vodka with the pineapple. Then I added in some cherries! So far, it's good. Give it a few more days!

National Tequila Day


Well, it's Sunday mornin',

And the sun is shinin' in my

Eye that is open,

And my head is spinnin',

Was the life of the party,

I can't stop grinnin',

I had too much tequila last night.




José Cuervo you are a friend of mine.

I like to drink you

with a little salt and lime.

Did I kiss all the cowboys?

Did I shoot out the lights?

Did I dance on the bar?

Did I start any fights?



Now wait a minute,

Things don't look too familiar.

Who is the cowboy who's sleepin' beside me?

Well, he's awfully cute,

But how'd I get his shirt on?

I had too much tequila last night.




All those little shooters,

How I love to drink them down.

Come on bartender, let's have another round.

Well, the music is playin',

And my spirits are high.

Tomorrow might be painful,

But tonight we're gonna fly.




José Curervo

You are a friend of mine.

I like to drink you with a little salt and lime.

Everytime we get together,

I sure have a good time.

You're my friend, you're the best...

Mí Amigo....




José Cuervo, you are a friend of mine!
