Some Guy and His Dog

Let's all live in the water (something my physical therapist said I could not do).
I'll continue to try.

How Hot Is It?

It's so hot I hoped for a tornado just to feel a breeze

It's so hot the squirrels are dipping their nuts in Snow Cones
It's so hot even carousel horses are drinking water
It's so hot I saw a bird picking up worms with oven mitts
It's so hot cows are giving evaporated milk
It's so hot black bears are dressing in white
It's so hot fish are already fried when you catch them
It's so hot the Piggly Wiggly logo is beginning to look delicious
It's so hot my sweat is sweating
It's so hot you can fry an egg on shaved ice
It's so hot I saw a camel giving the sun the finger

"She's so flippin' hot. She's like a curry."

D Is For Dexter

D is for my house guest Dexter

Dexter is also my Favorite thing this week 

But I'm still impressed with these Land of the Lost pastries from the Pine Cone

This silver robot guy has a cold Winter vibe on a sweltering Summer day

Can't You Smell That Smell?

Wellity wellity, what do we have here?

It's as if it wants me to sniff its butt

Once again little brother, you shame us both

Different kind of bum, smells like micro beer.

Four Italians Walk Into A Diner

My Mother turned 91 yesterday. She writes the children's poetry posted here sometimes. A few of us Italian girls went to the Norske Nook for pie and who cares what else. My cousin Tammi and I were the only Norwegians at the table, but all of us are some manner of Italian and the four of us have major sweet tooths, teeth—we like pie.

Full Blooded Italian

Never Too Old To Be A Fairy Princess

Blake tempting us with pie from the case. Possibly Pumpkin Cream Cheese

My Choice: Frozen Orange Dreamsicle Pie

The Birthday Girl's Choice: Cream Cheese Strawberry Pie with a graham cracker crust

Tammi had Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie and took home a slice of Raspberry Cream Cheese and a piece of Turtle Cheesecake for her and the hubby. She said they were "like heaven" and to "die for". I'd post another pie photo here, but I'm full and I think everyone's had enough already.

Update: Here ya go, Sallie, not the best pic but you get the idea.

As long as I'm adding on the calories, the Northwoods Root Beer Float frozen pie remains my fav out of all I tasted.
Root Beer Float, Still the Winner
