Just kicking back and enjoying the afterglow of a great ride on the motorcycle. We were gone about 4 hours and had a super meal out as well.

The ride was nothing short of invigorating, as the weather was postcard perfect and, for a change, the traffic in some of the usual more congested areas was quite thin. I'm gonna sleep like a baby tonight!

You get back here!" Poor woman never showed her face during the day until their phase was completed!
Neighbor lady had a purebred Scotty with a long official name, that I don't remember. Every time she would yell at him to "Get your A__ in here!" So guess what the dog would answer to...LOL I was out in the side yard one day and she hollers at me, "Have you seen my A__?" That was at least 35 years ago and it still cracks me up.

I vaguely remember I had to go into for test that I couldn't take on the treadmill. They gave me a shot and stuck me in a lead lined room with a bunch of other patients. When they came to call our name, the person was dressed with a lead apron. After the test we were each brought to a room that was again lead lined and we stayed there for an hour. Someone later came and check us out. If our level was too high, we go to stay another hour, until I level was safe for us to leave. Fortunately they had coffee, cream and sugar along with plenty of up to date reading material.

Mixed up Beagle's boiled chicken, white rice, and broth for the bland diet vet recommended since she hasn't been eating for the last 6 days. After a bunch of shots, procedures, and other expensive stuff at the clinic, she actually ate some.

I was so tempted to add some flavor, it tasted nasty to me, but Beagle approved. That's what matters!

I am thanking the Internet and whoever invented "cream cheese frosting"!

I don't have a sweet tooth, and have never enjoyed "butter cream icing" which is the usual topping or filling for cakes in the UK.

Today, I topped my Coffee and Walnut Traybake with coffee cream cheese frosting. Everyone at work loved it! And so did I!

Now that sounds interesting! Will keep that in mind. I too love cream cheese frosting. Just never thought to flavor it!
