Brave Cat ~ Carve A Turkey Easy ~ Surprise In Loaner ~ Pumpkin Pecan Bread ~ Monday Football ~ Isabella

Good 44ยบ supposed to be clear today morning.


(Brave cat!)

I was watching the Kennedy Center Honors for Jay Leno Sunday night. Kristin Chenoweth was one of the performers singing a song to Leno with the line "You aren't as clever as Obama" !!! Leno was not smiling, neither were a number of people in the audience and some didn't clap. She's creepy!!!! She is a flaming liberal and Leno an R!
Here is some great information in regards to carving a turkey... Thanks Ed Chenal (LASD ret)
