Clouds ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Turkeys and Geese ~ Maggie ~ Jalapeño Dressing ~ Daylight Savings Time History

Good 35º drizzling rain morning.
Yesterday it was cloudy for awhile and then we got sun!

Of course Dude was laying in it, but Bruiser was on the glider!
By the way, this glider is over 40 years old. It was my folks. Survived well.

Throw Back Thursday..... February 2000....Alex and Jack sitting on Jerry's Harley....

Interesting that a whole flock of young hens showed up and the geese too....
Now these are definitely some of the weirdest pants ever!

Today was my Maggie's birthday. She was born in 1999. She passed away at age 14.   She was Scottish, a McNab, named for the man who bred these dogs.. Generally McNabs are black and white and "occasionally red and white"... being a "red head" and Scottish I named her Maggie after my red headed Scottish mother, Margaret.

So missed every day! ♥
Make yourself a salad with lettuce, halved grape tomatoes, avocado, canned corn, cucumber, sliced radishes, and/or any other ingredients you like. Then shred some cooked chicken on top and mix all together.
For the piéce de résistance make some Jalapeño Dressing

For dressing, in a small bowl combine the first six ingredients (through paprika). Stir in enough of the milk to reach desired consistency. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
1/4 cup sliced pickled jalapeño peppers, finely chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 T. snipped fresh cilantro
1 T. lime juice
1/2t. paprika
1-2 T. milk
If Jalapeño Ranch Dressing sounds good, mix in some Ranch Dressing mix or add some bottled ranch dressing.
