Yesterday... Brian Jen Tucker and Sami came over to fish in the pond. They got out all their gear and headed up to the pond....

They came almost right back. WHOPPEN??? Because of the draught there wasn't much water in the dang pond! I gave Jen a little bag of cat food to throw on the water to see if any fish were there.. Brian said he saw a little one surface. Sigh... He took these photos with his camera...

This makes me sad. I hope we get rain soon as predicted!
Anyway, they stayed here for a bit while Tucker and Sami drove the golf cart around and then headed to the park where Tucker could practice his casting.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

November 17th
National Homemade Bread Day
(Now this sounds like a plan!)

Bakers of the world, rise up and bake some bread, for today is Homemade Bread Day.
Bread has been made for thousands of years. Estimates date it's origin back to 5000-10,000 B.C. Modern day lifestyles has relegated homemade bread to the world of specialty baking and holiday baking. People just don't have time to bake home made bread. We turn to a quick "run" to bakeries and grocery stores, for our bread needs. The arrival of automatic bread makers has created a small resurgence of home made breads, especially specialty breads.
The purpose of this day is easy to understand.--- to make home made bread, and to encourage you and me to make tasty and nutritious bread. So, take a little time out of your busy day, and make some bread. Your nose, your taste buds, and your whole family will be glad you did.
Happy Homemade Bread Day!
