Spike keeps reminding me that he has my medical proxy. It states that either he or Poo gets to pull the plug. He also says he is going to have it laminated and carry it with him at all times. He is just waiting for that phone call.

Now if he should show up here first and find me deceased, he will take the KA mixer and food saver along with my electric slicer. Then he will notify whoever. Nice kid I have there.

LOL!!!

That's funny. My guys have my stuff divvied up to. Youngest gets everything in the kitchen but my dehydrator. Oldest called dibs on that when he started to make his own jerky. The dogs get all my money. They beat the state to it first. They know how to dig and hide things better.
Beat them at their own game. Knowing them they won't be talking either.

Did you ever see the show Frazier where Niles has little round stickers and puts them on all the things of Frazier's he wants in the event of Frazier's death? Well, one day Spike came in with a sheet of them. That child likes to flirt with death.

Just finished chopping up 3 pounds of bacon ends-and-pieces in 1-pound batches, then frying it. Then drained it and bagged it for the freezer.

Now I have enough bacon bits to make 3 batches of bacon-and-egg bread.

The chopping, cooking and draining of the bacon is the most tedious and messiest part of that bread and it occurred to me the other day that I could do a bunch of bacon at one time and freeze it. Sometimes I'm a little slow.

It was an enjoyable task today because I put on a collection of old Elvis music I got at a thrift store last week. The CDs had never been opened and I've been having a ball singing along.

I bet it is a good feeling to have it done, and ready for when you need it. I bet your house smells good too!

Yes, it smells heavenly and I have this uncontrollable desire for a BLT.

Plus, another benefit of doing this is that I will have some bacon grease to save for making cornbread and adding to green beans and/or black-eyed peas. The rest goes to the dog and our granddog who is visiting this week. Further goes to prove that it's nice to visit grandma and grandpa.

LOL!

I did see that episode. Hilarious. Great show!
My youngest when he's kidding around talks intellectually straight faced just like Niles. Walks the walk to. All jittery. LOL! Makes me laugh so hard. I have to tell him to stop go to his room before he gives me a coronary.

Now they use my printable label maker. "Mine."
Relabeled. No it's NOT yours. Still the property of MOM!
The batteries have disappeared.

Oh I just love green beans cooked with the bacon grease.

Cleaning Poem
I asked the Lord to tell me
Why my house is such a mess.
He asked if I'd been 'computering',
And I had to answer "yes."

He told me to get off my fanny
And tidy up the house.
And so I started cleaning up...
The smudges off my mouse.

I wiped and shined the topside.
That really did the trick...
I was just admiring my work...
I didn't mean to 'click.'

But click, I did, and oops I found
A real absorbing site
That I got SO way into...
I was into it all night. <<Sigh>>

Nothing changed except my mouse
It's very, very shiny.
I guess my house will stay a mess...
While I sit here on my hiney.

I LOVE My Computer
Because My
Friends
Live In It!
