Weather ~ Deer ~ Margaret Kean ~ Buffalo Dip ~ Saturday Football ~ Weird Dreams

Good 45º drizzly morning. Thought we'd have had more rain than we got. Sounded like it, but no. Only about 1/4".
Looks like rain for the next couple days ...

Yesterday at 4:30pm...

While I was out there this little deer was munching away..
With the new lens I have ordered I will get better close ups! This one goes to 270mm and the new one will go to 600mm! I can photograph the freckle on their nose!
Christmas! 5 days!!!
I was looking at FB and found this:

This woman, Margaret Kean, was an artist whose paintings had big eyes. They were famous but her husband took the credit for making the paintings! Tim Burton made a film about her, coming out Christmas Day. It's called 'Big Eyes'. I want to see it!

OK, now this made me drool immediately...
Buffalo Dip
1/2 cup Best Foods Mayonnaise
7 oz plain Greek yogurt
2 TBSP buffalo sauce
1/4 to 1/2 tsp garlic powder
a small handful of blue cheese (optional)
  1. Mix together the mayo, Greek yogurt, and buffalo sauce.  Slowly add the garlic powder, starting with 1/4 tsp and adding a little more at a time until you reach the desired taste.
  2. Top with blue cheese and serve with cut veggies.

Saturday football:

After my Wal-Mart shopping yesterday I didn't get much else done. Dinner, wine, and some Blue Bloods shows. Then before I got up this morning some WEIRD dreams. Michael Jackson was in one! He was wearing bright orange shorts and matching socks. No shirt, but only saw him from the back. Then had a dream that old friend, Terry da Pully (Polly) who was Jerry's pal and the station mechanic at Temple was in jail! What???? But the weird thing was he could move the bars back and forth. They were like on sliding doors. The guy in the cell next to him had a bunch of birds. Beyond bizarre. Then their cells were moved to the other side of the building out on a big driveway. Sigh........
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday.
