Good 34º clear sunny morning.
Yesterday we topped at 78º.
In the morning yesterday the geese and turkeys were out and about.... honking and gobbling! NOISY!
Yesterday Dakota got here and mowed a lot of area and then did a lot of weed-eating. He did a great job and I recommend to anyone in this area!
He brought his 3 month old pup Luna, a Heeler. She kept and eye on her dad.....
and later came in the house and, like Dash, napped in my lap!
Picture of the Day... OMGOSH! What a strange thing to do to a car!
Interesting about Tabasco.....
Tabasco sauce is a brand of hot sauce made exclusively from tabasco peppers (Capsicum frutescens var. tabasco), vinegar, and salt. It is produced by McIlhenny Company of Avery Island, Louisiana.
Although the name comes from the Mexican state of Tabasco, the sauce is an American product produced by McIlhenny Company.
(Re the state in Mexico: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabasco)
Tabasco sauce was first produced in 1868 by Edmund McIlhenny, a Maryland-born former banker who moved to Louisiana around 1840. McIlhenny initially used discarded cologne bottles to distribute his sauce to family and friends. In 1868 when he started to sell to the public he ordered thousands of new cologne bottles from a New Orleans glass supplier. On his death in 1890, McIlhenny was succeeded by his eldest son, John Avery McIlhenny, who expanded and modernized the business, but resigned after only a few years in order to join Theodore Roosevelt's 1st US Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, the Rough Riders.
Jerry LOVED Tabasco Sauce. He could just drink it right out of the bottle!!!
