Clouds ~ Adorable Dogs ~ Irish Harley Store ~ Deer ~ Rice Pudding

Good 50ยบ started out as a dark gloomy cloudy morning.

After a bit it's starting to lighten up... 

The excitement yesterday rose to the top with vacuuming and bill paying. Zowie!

I like to buy the little rice pudding cups. They are each just enough!

OMGOSH, this dog is sooooooooo cute!!! I want that pup!!!

Friend and LASD ret Rod Johnson and his bride Linda were recently in Ireland. He posted about 800 photos on Smileboxes. Beautiful scenery. Intriguing architecture. I copied this off for my friend Jennifer Murphy.... Murphy's Harley:

I thought it interesting that Linda and Rod met friends of Linda over there.... last name of Mills. Now my grandfather on my Mom's side is Mills also, but he was Scottish! My grandmother was a Dunbar. Remember Dances With Wolves starring Kevin Costner...he played Lt. John Dunbar and the young white woman who was raised by the Sioux Indians calls him Dumb-bear! There is a Dunbar Castle in Scotland.
The Irish side of my family is my Dad's. Laney. There is a Laney River in Ireland.
Yesterday while I was watching the news I noticed this fawn out at the side of the house.....
and her mom....

Then in the front yard was another doe munching on the green just watered grass....

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
