Rain ~ Sunset ~ ELA Mouse Pad ~ Pilates ~ Dave Perry ~ Dale & Dee Yellin ~ Sandy's Crab Pie ~ Peanut Butter Fudge Day

Good 40º raining morning. Started last evening, so far 1" of the wet stuff. 

Oh man, I was so cold yesterday morning, nothing would warm me up... not coffee or hot tea. So, when I got dressed I put my clothes in the dryer first. Ahhhhhhhh..... felt soooo good putting on warm clothes!!!

Yesterday we topped out at 40º.

Turkeys wandering around....

Getting close to sunset: 

This is my mouse pad.. ELA Station was called Fort Apache and the helmet on the boot was the Low Profile. Siempre una patada en los pantalones translates to "always a kick in the pants" !

Probably very politically incorrect these days, especially with our new Sheriff down there. Ah well....

My friend Jennifer Murphy goes to pilates all the time.

She's doing great, staying in shape. She told me I should go to pilates too. Hmmmm..... so I told her I probably should, as I love pie and lattes!

A special birthday today... Dave Perry is celebrating HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE!!!

And a special anniversary, the 27th is celebrated by Dale (LASD SR Motors ret) and Dee Yellin. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!

Sandy's Crab Pie

This recipe from my high school pal, Sandy (Todoran) Beck. Made it many times and it's sooooooo good.




Blend cheese and horseradish, mayo, and onion. Spread onto plate. Flatten and smooth top. Refrigerate overnight.
Before serving, spread chili sauce over top and flake crab meat over all.
Serve with Ritz or rye crackers, or toast rounds.

Dinner yesterday was Omaha Steaks breaded cod fillet and some cheese/bacon/potato tots! Soooooo good!

Then chair, wine, and TV..... Patriots/Raiders game from Mexico City (WHOOOO HOOOOO my Pats won 33 - 8!!!!)
Rizzoli and Isles (best friends ...Boston cop and Medical Examiner)
Blue Bloods, Hawaii 5-0.

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