February 7, 2009 Temperature 70

Warm enough to hang out clothes.  Notice moon coming up just as the sun drops.

Coyote checking out where I dump vegetable scraps.  He actually ate the heart of a cabbage.  Too many coyotes not enough rabbits.

Homemade Birthday Cards

Trent drew this picture.  His first grade teacher then had it printed on note cards.  These will be perfect for all occasions.

Happy Birthday to ….

It was a good day.  Lots of attention which I will never outgrow.  The grandboys came down for ice cream and my favorite vanilla cake.  It’s number 63 and the candles are on the cake in that way.  We had to light them twice to get the blow out picture.  I received two very cool homemade cards, one a very nice hand drawn tree by Trent.  It is on greeting cards which I will be proud to send.   The one from Aaron, Adam and Evan  I will have to post.  In fact, check tomorrow night, I will put them both up.  1-17-08 063

The best advertisement

The buzz Monday morning at work was as much about the advertisements as the Super Bowl game. Clydesdales, snow globes, and which soft drink ad was the best.Copy of 1-17-08

Hands down, outside of the Super Bowl hype, I think the Angus beef breeders have the best advertisement campaign.

The experts who know about grades and types of beef say it is true that Angus beef is a good product.

However, I wonder if the average consumer could tell the difference between a Hardees regular hamburger or an Angus burger. Pondering over the meat case, is there really a difference in steaks. Or roasts?

In the instance of this can that Dan brought home from the store today. I wonder if a discerning palate can tell the difference.1-17-08

Valley Girls

Copy of IMG_0501

More years ago than any of us believe, our families were neighbors along the Wakarusa Valley.  We worked, played and laughed. The three of us formed a bond as sisters.

Two of the three moved from the valley.  Still memories bind but friendship brings us together.
