I had just text Mr. Bumblebee when the house phone rang. I assumed it was him. This is how the conversation went:
Me (in a sexy voice): Hey sexy...
Him: You just gave me the perfect lead into my spiel (he's holding in his laugh as he says this, I can tell)
Me: Ok...let's hear it.
Him: This is Cox Communications and I'm here to offer you two months of free caller id....and honey, you need it.
Me: Sign me up.

That is a huge possum. I don't think you can tell from the picture but this thing was about 20 pounds. It was huge!

So here we go:
This recipe was given to me from my MIL and it is so easy. The parts in red are changes I've made to the recipe to make it easier.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 1.5 hours
1 lb of ground beef
1 can of kidney beans
1 can of pinto beans
2 8oz cans of tomato sauce
1 can of stewed/diced/sliced tomatoes (whatever you prefer)
1/2 cup of catsup
1/3 cup of chili sauce
1 cup of water
1 tbsp of chili powder
1 tbsp of mustard
1/2 chopped onion (I didn't have an onion and didn't feel like running to the store so I just threw in some onion powder to get the hint of onion taste)
Brown the ground beef and onion (If you are just using onion powder, wait till you add the rest of the ingredients)
Comeon' friends...no more excuses...no more stitches...

We took our seats in the nick of time for the Star Spangled Banner, and at the opportune moment, we both flew our heads up to look into the sky but we saw......
We waited....and waited....and waited....eventually I saw this:
We haven't had that feeling in awhile and gosh it felt so good. I only hope we feel it again for the next three weekends.

Before the weather turned cold, we took advantage of the local dog beach and took the pooches. We had given them very short hair cuts for cocker spaniels to keep them cool in the summer.
They love the beach, there are so many things to do:
Birds to chase....
You can almost hear her lock on her target:
Does anyone else hear the Chariots of Fire?
Move over Pam Anderson, Lifeguard Tuck is watchin' this beach...

Hope they enjoyed them! I had one before I handed them over and they were soooo yummy!

It's not as bad as seeing Mickey as I mentioned here. Tucker really loves it. As soon as we velcro them back onto the turkey body...he rips the legs off and runs under the bed with them. The 12 bucks we spent on it have given us plenty of entertainment.

I'm fine. Don't worry. I fell on my right wrist last Friday and it was still bothering me a lot. Having had two instances where hairline fractures in my bones went untreated, I decided to just go in and get an x-ray to be sure.
Well I'm thrilled to report there were no fractures but instead I had a "deep tissue" bruise. Between the bone and the muscle instead of between the muscle and the skin. Who knew that was possible? So I have to wrap my hand in a bandage/brace for about 2 weeks and limit my usage with it. This will teach me to learn how to not trip over myself :(
