Not Quite A Diner But In The Ballpark (With Ballpark Prices)

Since my young cousin is taking my baby away tomorrow my old cousin—ha, she's a year younger than I am—drove over to DeForest with me for pie and Reubens.

Oh joy, it's Senior Day and we're old

The Thief of Hearts and my cousin Nanci say goodbye

A tasty Rueben on delicious cranberry wild rice bread (with homemade chips)

Short Stack

I had a hankering for diner food yesterday and the Pine Cone has a restaurant on Stoughton Road right next to Token Creek County Park. There was a new batch of young waitresses working and that's rarely good.
You want a career waitress named Bev who calls you, "Hon" not someone who doesn't know the difference between a short stack and silver dollar pancakes.

"Anyone know what a short stack is? And how do I use this ink stick?"

My mother thought we were in Johnson Creek, the preferred Pine Cone

I find diner grape juice irresistible

Not a short stack

Just before I was told to stop. taking. pictures. Look at the size of that BLT

Looking For Flapjacks

The Broadway Diner in Boo screams pancakes. Well, not literally, but wouldn't that be fun?
Remember, they've got "Gourmet hash in a flash," information we could have used in the seventies.

White Witch Watch

I feel as if I'm on watch for the White Witch. We're also on the lookout for Dexter's daddy who we haven't heard from since he said he was coming for him. Perhaps this lovely weather has something to do with it, in which case let it snow.

I just saw a faun with an umbrella

The grill is free

Watching live Bird Theater

Dried meal or wax worms, wet pet food or dried berries could feed these guys for now

Year of the Cat Clip Show

This is hard for me to write not only because I'm broken up about Dexter's owner taking him back soon, but because being a dog person I would have been one of those people shaking their heads at this kind of display. That is before I met Dexter (cue music).


It's been a Year-and-a-Half of the Cat altogether.


Dexter has been my soft, fluffy, mewing, mewling, curious, shedding, shredding, licking, biting, playful,warm, sneezing, scratching, yawning, adventuresome, bird-watching, bathtub-surfing, counter-climbing, food-snatching, paper-catching,


mischievous, hilarious, surprising, consoling, cautious, pink-pawed, crazy-loud-purring, dog-dreaming, trick-learning,


inscrutable, foot warming, baseball-watching, companion, sounding board and goofball accountant for more than a year straight and I was a little surprised his owner was coming to collect him.


I'm all verklempt so here are more of my favorite moments.

Wacky Waving Wednesday

If it's raining it means it's not snowing. And although that's not guaranteed, I think posting pics of this Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Shoebox Man may finally bring us spring and keep up the 40˚ heat wave.


What the what?

Doing the wacky waving snow shoo boogaloo

Is that King Kong on the roof?

Exit, stage left, I mean right.


Heavens to Murgatroyd, I feel drained and all sepia toned. Sepia Tony would be a good name for a band

Is it cruel to put me outside a shoe store when I have no feet?


For a good time stop by Sandee's Tuesday Fun.

And Then

It was six below zero somewhere in Wisconsin that wasn't here today.
They got over a foot of snow in Door County on Tuesday although their welcome page says Sail Into Springtime.
Good thing they drink a lot up north. I think this weather calls for a drinking game played with Leinie's and 70s style shooters, every time the weatherman says, "blustery," "unseasonably cold" or "abnormal," drink.
I'm watching local news as I type and the other newscasters are telling the weatherman, "That's okay, Gary, it's not your fault."

It Snowed (all Gary's fault)
