Yesterday I saw Mr. Coyote in my pasture. I went out on the porch with my camera and he stopped and looked at me. I said "hello" and then he ran a bit and stopped again....
I found some old chips in the cupboard, so I smashed them up and tossed them out back for the birds. We have a couple crows who frequent out there. Noisy guys! So, instead of the crows showing up, the turkeys did.....
I needed an afternoon cocktail and snack... a little of Jerry's favorite tequila in a Texas (he was born there) shot glass and some 'in store made' Safeway guacamolé.... and rice crackers.
Later dinner was air fried sirloin, green beans with parmesan cheese, and tomatoe. Perfect. Steak in Air Fryer for 15 minutes at 400º. Crispy on the outside, pink on the inside.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Father's Day. Ciao.
