Yesterday babysitting my granddog Dash ended. Brian and family and my Kristen all were on a Spring Break trip. More on that later. I miss Dashie already!
Here is where he loved spending time.... when I was in my chair watching TV, he was right there with me........
And now that Dash is back home, Bruiser is a happy cat back in his "spot" !!!

Interesting about elephants........
To the untrained eye, African and Asian elephants can be indistinguishable, but there are key physical features that make these two species relatively easy to tell apart. The most noticeable physical differences can be seen in the ears, tusks and head shapes of the two species, according to The Elephant Sanctuary, a natural-habitat refuge for endangered elephants located in Hohenwald, Tenn. African elephants have large ears,
shaped much like the continent of Africa itself. The larger surface area of their ears helps to keep African elephants cool in the blazing African sun. Asian elephants have less to worry about heat-wise, as they tend to live in cool jungle areas, so their ears are smaller.
You might want to take a peek into your garden for some of the ingredients needed for this Garden Quiche. It's made with a couple of fresh garden ingredients, like spinach and cherry tomatoes, which make this quiche perfect for a Mother's Day brunch or spring get-together. OR, just get these items at the market! Would be good for Easter breakfast too.
