It started out bad , I'm deep stuff Roll Eyes

I let the Dogs out in the chain linked fenced back, to do their "stuff".
There is the pre-revelers, fireworks pops & bangs, the little shih Tzu panics and squeezes under the gate.... now lost.
I hunted till dark... Friends helped , Animal Control (another friend that knows the dog works there ) is alerted.

1st. light I'll be out looking , it's "HER" dog.....

Our dog went nuts when the fireworks started here, too.  Just about put my brother on the ground with her leash.

Morning all.

Heading to the city for church in a while, hoping the white stuff doesn't keep us down there.  We're forecast for " 1 - 14"  in the next 24 hours."  Thanks for the heads up...

As I was cooking breakfast this morning, the dead coffee pot was plugged in, but because it's dead, not on.  I'm stirring my oatmeal, when I hear a click, look behind me, and the darn thing is brewing a pot of coffee. Shocked  Ghost coffee.

Happy New Year One and All

lost dog, ghost coffee.

I hope it gets better for you all!

look on the bright side, the vikings used to have to catch a wild boar, bring it into the hall, and while drunk
put their hand on it's head and make New Year Vows.

If the boar believed in your sincerity, you got your hand back.

Off the next two days, there is an odor in my kitchen I need to check out, kinda like someone mixed stalebeer with sour milk.  Think the sourdough starter is ready to use, thinking pumpernickel for the first batch.  Takes about 24 hours to rise the right way using all rye flour and just he sourdough for yeast, worth the wait.

Sounds good, Del.   Grin  My starter survived my grandmother's refrigerator cleaning, so I might have to pull it out and make something with it.

The white stuff has been falling since about 1700, but it's been too warm to stick.

Had the day off from work, so I've been doing things around the house.  Rearranging the front room, washing dishes etc..

Spent some time doing car repairs, put a new front wheel bearing on the Blazer, still needs a ball joint and upper control arm bushings. I have the tools and know how for that, but not the time, so it's scheduled for a trip to the shop next week. At least I won't have to listen to the left front wheel howling on the route tomorrow. Did a little shooting before it got too dark, still learning the "art of the LCP". It's good for elevation, but if I pull the trigger like I do with the 1911, that is with just the tip of my trigger finger on the trigger, it pulls most of my shots to the right. Seems like if I pull the trigger with the finger in the trigger guard up to the first joint, then it's centered better. If I shot the .45 like that, I'd pull all my shots a foot low and left. Plus when shooting with the finger tip, the rather snappy recoil bangs the trigger guard into the finger pretty hard.

Finally got back from our month+ long road trip.  Went to Oregon (for Thanksgiving), then cross county (with several stops in route) to Milwaukee (for Christmas), then back though the southern passes to Vegas  (for New Year’s Eve) and then back home late yesterday.  Good thing we planned the southern route coming home, as I saw the weather wasn’t the best in the states we went through going out.

Woke up this morning to a light coating of sn*w.  Let the cats out, but they didn’t go very far before realizing they didn’t really like the frozen white stuff on the patio.  Supposed the get another 3-5” tonight and tomorrow.

Beating a large pile of clothes on rocks right now.  It’s good to be back home and plan on just laxin’ out for the next couple days.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Morning all.  I'll run the hot water through the beans.  Roll Eyes

Had a front come in last night, now there's about 4 inches of white stuff on the ground.  THe emergency crews have been going like the energizer bunny.  Apparently, there are still a bunch of people up here who haven't figured out the whole "70 mph isn't a good idea on icy roads" bit.

Got back into working out yesterday after a break over Christmas.  New workout routine, that works different parts of the body different ways than the last.  Today, I'm not sure how I'm going to bend over to clean the toilets.   Shocked

Pumpernickel, 100% rye flour, using only sourdough to raise it.  The acids in the sourdough convert some of the rye starch to a different form allowing a good rise despite the low gluten content of the rye flour.

you're making me hungry, Del.   Roll Eyes

Morning all. 

Work in a little while, followed by a good, old fashion nap.  My sister's dog kept me up most of the night, and since I don't have anything to do later, might as well go to sleep.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Morning y'all....in Seminole territory this week.  My favorite oldest son is coming to join my favorite daughter, wife and myself to visit with my parents.  In the 70's, breezy, and the view of the gulf from our tippi (read as condo) is wonderful.  I'll have another cup and go for a walk on the beach.
