Yes inflation is real. Chuck is up to $3 now.

Where’s Steve Carrell?

Weird but true. Space Force is real.

Busy Boy

Harry was such a busy boy, working hard to find the best lap situation. 

Like Goldilocks, some places just weren’t quite right  

Hey buddy, can you just scootch over a bit?

No Parking

There’s supposed to be road work in the neighborhood, but all that’s happened so far was a noisy morning of the asphalt being cut. Tree roots have cracked and lifted a section of the gutter just past the telephone pole, which stops the flow of water when it rains and then we get a giant pool of water in front of our mailbox. So it will be nice if that gets fixed. Someday. And maybe someday it will rain again.

Family Fun Month

I haven’t gotten to do any window projects this year until now. The store moved from collaborative efforts to assigning each month’s window to a specific person. I drew August. After some Googling I found that August is Family Fun Month. So the window encompasses a bit of everything: games, puzzles, cooking, picnics, outdoors, activities, arts and crafts. 

And googly eyes!

Gingerbread Store

For the store's open house and 50th anniversary last fall, they had a beautiful gingerbread version made.

But there were no pigeons!

Saga of the duck

We had duck for new year's eve dinner. Yes, I told you I had a lot of old draft posts hanging around.

I wondered what was the best method for cooking it. Every cookbook had a different method! As you can see, I checked out quite a few. Yes, I have a lot of cookbooks.

I finally went with the tried-and-true Joy of Cooking, as I had tried it before (see check mark).

It was good.
