Good 44º clear sunny morning. Yesterday we topped at 92º. Going to be that or warmer today.
Yesterday I had a note on FB asking if I had gotten my gift. I replied, "gift?". Well, as it turns out my friend, Gary The Birdhouse Guy (also teased by Jerry as "Gary My Love") left a birthday present sitting atop my trash can down by the road!

Your Omaha order looks yummy! We received ours day before yesterday. John always helps me pack them into the freezer. I was going to fix those chicken in pastry ones last night but Matthew reminded me that I said I would serve corn dogs for dinner. lol Never did that for dinner before. I served them with Ramen noodles (John's favorite) so it was an easy meal. I'm all for easy!.

The bird house is adorable! How nice of him. So glad it was there when you went to get it. Surprise no one took it thinking it was a freebee.

Sue, I am sitting here laughing out loud. I did just what you say you do. In reading Nancy's comment I mistakenly thought she wrote "Obama" instead of Omaha! LOL I thought W H A T????? Just read the first line and see what I mean! Lordy! I will be so glad when this election season is over! OF COURSE corrupt Hil liar y HAS to be beaten!!

Funny I always thought Weiner Schnitzel involved a frankfurter, hot dog or weiner! One in the same I thought! Then we learned a "weiner" can even be a pervert as in Anthony! :(
