Good 42º cloudy foggy morning. Yesterday we topped at 46º.
It stayed like this all day.... no sunshine!
Yesterday I had errands to run and went to see Leah my hair girl to see if she could help me with this perm and the kinky hair! She trimmed it all up and it's looking better. Since it grows fast I won't have to be kinky headed much longer!
When I got to the shop, Leah's daughter Marley was there with her new puppy, a German Shepherd mix, 6 weeks old, named Bear. OH SO CUTE!!!!
Then to the store for a couple things and back home to my fur babies. I made the mistake of opening the bag of "veggie chips" I bought and ended up eating half the bag!!!

Later I had recorded and then watched The Carol Burnett 50th Anniversary Special. Carol is 84 and even with some plastic work done, she still looks the same. Interesting. Lots of the old skits. Fun. Steve Lawerence and Lyle Waggoner were on and I would not have recognized either of them now! Steve Lawrence is 82. He and Eydie Gormé were married in 1957 and she died in 2013.
Lyle Waggoner is 82 and still married to the same woman since 1961!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

Pepper Pot Day
Pepper Pot Day commemorates the creation of this thick spicy soup, which was served to the Continental Army during the cold, harsh winter of 1777-1778. Pepper Pot soup was first made on December 29, 1777.
According to the legend...........
During the Revolutionary war, the Continental army was camped at Valley Forge. The winter was cold and harsh. Conditions were deplorable. Food was often scarce. George Washington asked his army's chef to prepare a meal for the army, that would both warm them, and boost their moral. The chef found scraps of tripe (ugh) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tripe ) , small bits of meat and some peppercorn. He mixed this in with some other ingredients, and created Pepper Pot soup, also known as "Philadelphia Pepper Pot soup”. The hot, and somewhat spicy soup, was well received by the troops. It was called "the soup that won the war”.
Celebrate Pepper Pot Day by making some Pepper Pot soup for the family. Note: while tripe was a main ingredient of this soup, you can substitute with chicken or beef.
