Snow! ~ Bullshillary ~ Patriots ~ Dude ~ Bruiser ~ Baked Potatoes

Good 37º snow on my mountain morning!
Yesterday late the wind started HOWLING! Blowing stuff everywhere! Scared both Dude and Bruiser. Then we got some rain. Not a lot. But this morning there is snow on the summit and snow on my mountain!

Good grief............. Bullshillary Clintoon!! Self-serving, lying, entitled, secretive, military hater, secret service hater, insincere, dangerous, overconfident, calculating, crooked, power hungry........ 

Two years ago Jay Leno said Bullshillary was commenting that she didn't know if she would run for President or not. Leno said that out of the 315 million Americans she's the ONLY ONE who didn't know if she'll run! So much BS coming from that piece of work!

Yesterday I got my taxes all printed out and signed and addressed. Went to the post office to officially send them off with a return receipt. Can't wait to get those checks!!! Too bad OVamit doesn't have to sign them personally!! Giggle giggle!!!

Oh, and while I was at  the post office. I said something like, "Dang, my dog Dude climbed over the back seats and is in the front seat." The guy behind me was parked next to me. He said, "Oh, you have a Patriots sticker on your car."

I told him I was a big fan. High school pal's uncle was Tom Brady's mentor and coach in Ca. He told me his dad played for the Patriots in the 60's! His name was Rocky. I have been researching that, but so far no luck. He also said his 9 year old son's middle name is Brady! Should have gotten more info from this guy. He said he's a local little league coach. I'll find him!

A GREAT day this date in 2013 .... Dude arrived to become my buddy! Thanks UPS Dave!!!!! He is THE BEST! He was so gentle with Maggie too. 

And I posted this in 2012... I had called Bruiser "Casper" as he was like a ghost.... showed up to eat and then gone..
"and saw "Casper" up by the pump house. I called to him but got that glancing look "don't bother me"..... In about 30 minutes he was in the bed of the golf cart chowing down!
I did my best not to frighten him by being sneaky taking pictures through the glass back door ...."
I am blessed I have this crazy cat and my Dude. They keep me smiling and feeling loved!
This recipe is EASY and good...

large baking potatoes
Butter, melted
minced fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Slice each half widthwise six times, but not all the way through. Fan potatoes slightly. Place in shallow baking dish. Brush with butter. Sprinkle with paprika, parsley, salt and pepper. Bake uncovered 350º for 50 minutes, or until tender. Drizzle with more melted butter.

Dinner last night was a wrap with some spinach, chicken, and provolone cheese. YUMMMMMM!!
Rolled it up and heated a bit to soften the cheese.
All I know. Happy Tuesday. Nuff said. Ciao.

National Pecan Day

Pecan Day is a rather nutty day. Its a day to celebrate and enjoy popular, tasty pecans. Apparently, someone thought that it was such a great nut, that they created two days to celebrate Pecans. One in March, and the other in April. A little nutty perhaps, but true. 
Name the only nut tree native to North America. ... You guessed it........ Pecan trees.
Celebrate Pecan Day and National Pecan Day by cracking open and eating a few pecan nuts. Also, have some pecan pie. (That was Jerry's favorite!)
