Clouds/Rain ~ Plumber Doug ~ Picture of the Day ~ 1964 Ford Mustang ~ Sandy's Crab Pie Dip ~ National Pineapple Upside Down Cake Day

Good 50Âș dark cloudy morning.
Clouds started moving in yesterday with a prediction of "possible rain"....

In the night we got rain, 1/4". 
More rain predicted for today. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and warm! That's good for the Easter Egg hunters!
Yesterday Brian's friend/plumber, Doug Gillette, came over and took care of my plugged up sink pipes. The plumbing in this old house sucks! Anyway, thankfully Doug got it fixed!! 
Picture of the Day....gray squirrel in a bird feeder
The Ford Mustang was officially unveiled by Henry Ford II at the World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows, New York, in 1964. That same day, the new car also debuted in Ford showrooms across America and almost 22,000 Mustangs were immediately snapped up by buyers.

Named for a World War II fighter plane, the Mustang was the first of a type of vehicle that came to be known as a “pony car.” Ford sold more than 400,000 Mustangs within its first year of production. The first model carried a manufacturer's suggested list price of $2,368
Today the 2019 Mustang will sell for $25,000 to $30,000!

National Pineapple Upside Down Cake Day is observed annually on April 20th. Americans have been enjoying this springtime cake since the early 1900s when many cakes were made in cast iron skillets.
To make a Pineapple Upside Down Cake, line the bottom of a cake pan with pineapple rings. A cherry is then placed in the center of each ring followed by a butter and sugar mixture.  Cake batter is then poured over the pineapples and baked.  When the cake is done, it is turned upside down onto a platter before serving, revealing a delightful and delicious masterpiece.
