Clouds ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Dog Like Cat ~ Susan Lane ~ Wine-One-One ~ Taprock Prime Rib ~ Ultimate Grilled Cheese


Good 37ยบ foggy morning.  Yesterday we had sprinkles and intermittent sun. The clouds were beautiful!

I love these kinds of clouds. You can see all kinds of things in them. Animals, angels, etc. Fun!


Happy Throw Back Thursday...
May 1955 my Mom and I waiting for the White House tour in Washington DC. We heard a noise and a window on the second floor of the WH opened and President Eisenhower leaned out and waved to us!
Cameras weren't high tech like today, and Daddy missed getting the President in a photo! Dang!


Sometimes cats just amaze me. This one in particular....



Yesterday was haircut day and then a stop at Brian's office and the market for cat food and some cracked corn at Ace.
Then later I went to Brian's friend, Don, who put some tinting on the driver and passenger front windows of my car and a strip over the front windshield at the top to block the sun. Good job and I am very happy. The funny thing about where he lives is on Susan Lane!
Just add a 'y' to the end of Lane and you have my maiden name!

The tint took a couple of hours, so Brian picked me up and we went to Tucker's baseball practice. After, he dropped me off to pick up my car.

National Chip and Dip Day


National Chip and Dip Day celebrates America's favorite snack duet. If you re holding a party, it is almost certain that chips and dips are on the snack list.
Important Note: National Potato Chip Day is on March 14th. For today's celebration, the "chip" is more generic. It could be corn chips, or tortilla chips. And, the dip is any kind that goes well with the chip of choice.
Today is best celebrated in the evening with a bag of chips and your favorite dip.
