Clouds ~ Coyote ~ Dude ~ Bruiser ~ Sunday Football ~ Tucker's New Bike ~ Wrinkled Egg ~ Yarn Bowl ~ Not Cleaning

Good 41º cloudy morning. No rain expected today.
After the rain stopped in the morning yesterday and the sun peeked through the clouds.  It was sooooo beautiful!

We had a visitor in the upper pasture... such a pretty boy!

Dude and the Bruise were content on the porch....

Until ........... shots fired up in the BLM. Hunting season! UGH. Always scares Dude!
Ok, now it's 3pm:
Ran "5 Miles" to the mailbox and picked up mail. 75º by then. Beautiful!

No radio code for 10-18.
Here is today's football lineup:

Brian sent me this picture of Tucker with the new bike he picked out with the gift card I gave him for his birthday...

Brian coming over and bringing a TV for me. It's a pretty new one he had and mine is getting past it's prime. I'm sure we bought it over 20+ years ago... from Paul's, The King of Big Screen! It's a big fat one, not skinny like the new ones!
Friday when I was making my breakfast this was one of the eggs I got out of the carton..
I never saw a wrinkled egg before! And, you'd think it would be a harder shell, but no. Where the wrinkles are it was much more tender. Weird!
Do you knit or crochet? For your yarn, you need one of these! LOL
I'd buy one and buy yarn just to have it!!!

Yesterday's "cocktail"...
                              Mmmmmmm, saké!  すごくいいですね (So good!)

Dinner was crab cakes (got at Safeway in meat section, bake at 400 18 minutes) atop spinach with artichoke hearts and tomatoes, and a piece of the pita bread with the jalapeño hummus. The dipping sauce that comes with the crab cakes is good but I added in some sriracha mayo and a dollop of the cream garlic sauce... OMGOOOOOOD!!!!

All I know.Nuff said. Happy Football Sunday. Ciao.
