Maying Out

It's the end of May and it went fast. We had chicken Monterrey, potato salad, broccoli and raisin salad, and beans for supper. Bush finally makes beans that are seasoned to eat right out of the can. My favorites are the Southern Pit Barbecue and the Smokehouse.

Toonces was chilling out on the blankets after supper. He had the couch to himself and was quite comfy. The first wave of strawberries are over. Wave two will be smaller as the plants have put out many runners and I have left them be. I lost a lot of plants last summer but the new ones made up for it this year.

Holiday Fun

I tried a new onion ring recipe from Pioneer Woman. It turned out great. I didn't have buttermilk, so I soaked the onions in milk and some vinegar.

I made potato salad using some red sweet pepper relish and zesty bread and butter pickles. We also grilled hamburgers.

The strawberries are peaking. We had waffles with strawberries for breakfast.

Yard Dogs and Red Things

Monty loves to lay in the sun. They all took a nap in the yard this week. The strawberries are beginning to ripen. It will be a good year if we can get two straight days of sunshine. Memorial Day Weekend finally, time to plant, grill, and chill.

And Then There Were Four

Bubba passed away over a month ago. He lived over 15-1/2 years. He was not eating very much. He had an accident at home that left him unable to walk around. The vet could never determine what was causing his illness. Toonces peers into the closet every once in a while to see if he is there.

So the question is does Toonces think the dogs are cats or do the dogs think Toonces is a dog? Toonces is now 17 years and 3 months old.

I watched Bones Monday night and was shocked at the ending. Next week is the finale and the Gormagon mystery will finally be solved. Go Pistons!
