I Can't Begin to Explain...

I can't begin to explain the circumstances behind this picture. Needless to say, that was probably alcohol in that cup.

Dying Easter Eggs

It will soon be that time of year. This is Pooh dying Easter eggs from years past.

Another picture of Pooh, but this also shows the Christmas decorations from that year. We didn't have a lot of money, but we wanted to really decorate the place.

We used lots of purple and gold.

This is Pooh taken in our first house when the house was decorated for Christmas. Isn't he the cutest?

A couple of pictures of Moose taken in a mountain cabin on a vacation some years ago.

The First House

This is the first house Pooh and Moose bought together in 1992.

That place will always hold a special place in my heart.

This is a mill in Virginia that I think is pretty. I think it's Mabry Mill

College Aged Moose

Pulled out the photo album and found a picture of college aged Moose. Thought I'd share. This was probably mid 1970's.

He was a skinny kid way back then.

Local Shopping; Not!

The local printer cartridge refill shop must love to try and rip people off.

I have a Canon printer. It uses a cheap cartridge that I can get new on the internet for about $25. I can buy a 2 pack at Costco for $40.

Since about the only thing I print these days are Groupon coupons, I figured I’d get a refilled cartridge from a local company. I’ve bought those on the internet and never had a problem. Considered buying online this morning, but I thought, “I’d like it today and I can support a local store.”

I headed to the shop down the street; gave the counter person my printer model number. She looked it up on her computer; said “Yes, we have that. It will be $30.”

My mouth fell open. I told her the cost of a new one is $25. She simply smiled as I walked out the door.

Came home; bought 4 off Amazon for $27 and free shipping.

Taken down

I took down today's post. Figured I'd get a lot of flack for it at home. Back tomorrow.

Winter picture

This is from last year. We love snow and haven't had more than a dusting that hasn't stuck this year. But here's hoping....

Chili Burger

Another favorite meal is our chili burger dinner. In a bowl, layer garlic mashed potatoes; a grilled, extra lean burger, homemade chili. Garnish with shredded cheese & French's onions.

Chicken wraps

I love to prepare simple, fast meals. One of our favorites is a chicken wrap consisting of mixed salad greens, chopped tomato, grilled chicken, bacon & ranch dressing in a large tortilla. Easy & tasty.

Random picture 2/3/12

I don't know where this came from, but thought it a cute moose.  Not cute enough to buy, though.
