The WD-40 tips of the week...
Remove crayon marks from walls (without wallpaper) and tile floors (Remove WD-40 residue with soap and warm water) Watch how here.
Shine stainless steel appliances and a variety of other surfaces
Help remove gum from hair (Afterward, wash hair thoroughly with shampoo and warm water)
AND.... don't forget it keeps critters from chewing the wiring under the hood of your car (Thank you Berry Perrou for that! Had I known it sooner it would have saved me $750 for a new wiring harness!) .. it repels mice, rats, ground squirrels, and BEARS!!!! RUN MR. BEAR!!!
I guess Peyton was on a mission after my Pats beat the Broncos so badly last week! Glad they womped the Raiders!

Lunch yesterday... Peel an avocado. Finely dice a tomato and take out the liquid and seeds.
Mash the avocado and add in the tomato, garlic salt, and some bacon crumbles. Mix well.
Take a couple rice cakes, spread on the Ricotta cheese and top with the avocado mixture.
It was perfect! And on top of that, Mr. Bruiser LOVES bacon crumbles.....
Then he went hunting up in the pasture...
Yesterday afternoon I went over to Jennifer's to see her new pup... The drive down Jennifer's road was soooooo pretty..
Here she is... she is soooooo sweet and lovable. She licked and licked my hand!
She got under Jennifer's chair on her blanket....
Heaven wanted to say hi and sniff her...
Keeper is a little jealous and very inquisitive about this new addition...
I have a couple suggestions for names... since she came from Song Dog Kennels... Love Song, or Shy Love, or Shiloh ... or Baby Love.... any name Jennifer picks will be perfect! It was sooooooo hard not to stuff her in my big purse and bring her home! GAWD she is adorable!!!!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

USMC Day celebrates the birth of the United States Marine Corps. The Marine Corps were created during the Revolutionary War.
The Continental Congress of the newly created United States of America, authorized the creation of the Continental Marines on November 10, 1775. It was later renamed the U.S. Marine Corps. It is often abbreviated as USMC.
The Marine Corps has proudly participated in every war that has involved the United States.
If you see a Marine today, thank them for their contributions to protecting our country. Active or retired, they deserve our thanks and appreciation.
Today is also... Vanilla Cupcake Day
