Good 40ยบ RAINING morning! Not supposed to be raining, but the weather has a mind of it's own and doesn't listen to those weather people!

Glad I'm not going over the summit today.... 

Yesterday was one of those over the top exciting days.... Clean the house, do dishes, wash clothes, etc etc etc..... Let the dog out, let the cat in, let the dog in, let the cat get it!

Here is an awesome video. John Wayne did a variety show on the 4th of July in 1970 saluting America. It's great to watch no matter how many times you have seen it. I LOVE this!!!

Oreo was a rescue dog and lived out the rest her life in the best possible way with lots of love and care.
Sunday Football ....
Interesting.. Kristen's Jets vs Alex's Dolphins!
The Lambs and the SeaChickens! And, my Patriots and the BillyBoy's. Brian and Tucker's Broncos are playing the Raiders (Boooooo). Go Broncos!!! Coach Harbaugh of the 9ers is outta there after today's game. Going to coach at Michigan, his alma mater! And Coach Ryan of the Jets is taking a hike also. (Yeah!)

Wasn't in the mood to cook, so dinner was popcorn, butter, and cheese!

Projects at hand.... stack wood on porch (after cleaning it off), see if lawnmower will start, see if I can fix the electric gate.... Probably not much will get done if this rain keeps up!
Need to cook tonight! Thinking of a stir-fry... veggies, crab, either gnocchi or pasta or Raman noodles.... We'll see.
All I know. Happy Football Sunday. Nuff said. Ciao.

Enter the world of card games. Cards have survived for centuries as a form of  "play" and entertainment. Sure, there are a few serious gambling types among us, who view cards a serious "business". To most of us, card games are just
Spend the day playing cards with family and friends. If you have kids, make sure to play some age appropriate card games with them. You'll find its quality time with the kids that will  create many warm memories.
Happy Card Playing Day. Now "go fish", "hit me", "double", and "I'll raise you two!". 


Chocolate. Who doesn’t enjoy the melody of those three syllables? The history of chocolate began right here in the Americas: The cacao tree first grew wild in the tropical rainforests of the Amazon basin. Our word chocolate comes from the Azteccacahuatl, based on the earlier Maya word xocoatl

So.............set up the card table and enjoy some chocolates along with the card games!
