Dash ~ Tequila ~ Hot Cheesy Mushroom Dip ~ Eyes ~ Picture of the Day ~ Bruiser ~ Sunset

Good 27º dark cloudy morning.

Breakfast..... oatmeal, plain yogurt, melon, strawberries, pineapple and a Stroopwafel. YUMMMMM!

Yesterday just stayed in the 30ºs. I stayed in and cleaned out a bunch of stuff from the shelf in the closet above the water heater. Half of it I didn't even know what it was. Some parts and pieces of stuff that Jerry put up there. Also there were a couple broken hummingbird feeders. Why in the world were they kept? Duh.

Brian took Dash to work with him. Looks as though he got comfy and enjoyed napping!

This brought back some memories. See if you (if you are my generation!) can keep your feet from dancing while you sit!!

 The iris is a thin, circular structure in the eye, responsible for controlling the diameter and size of the pupil and thus the amount of light reaching the retina. The color of the iris is often referred to as "eye color." The iris is usually strongly pigmented, with the color typically ranging between brown, hazel, green, gray, or blue. Despite the wide range of colors, the only pigment that contributes substantially to normal human iris color is the dark pigment melanin. The quantity of melanin pigment in the iris is one factor in determining the phenotypic eye color of a person.

Cherry Pie Day

Cherry pie is America's second most popular pie, behind only apple pie in popularity. However, in the month of February, it's Number 1.
As a young boy, George Washington made the Cherry tree popular, with his famous quote "I can not tell a lie, I chopped down the Cherry tree." We celebrate George Washington's Birthday and President's Day in February. Appropriately, its traditional to bake cherry pies in honor of the occasion.
