That's surprising. All flannel is, is thick cotton material.

I just finished carving my red velvet cake layers into the shape of a horseshoe, and carved a local extreme hiking trail ("The Grouse Grind") into one side. It is for DH's BIL's 60th birthday party tomorrow. Other decorations will include a one hole golf course, a pup tent with a M*A*S*H like poll with the names of the different campsites they like, a pumpkin plaque with "60" piped on it (his birthday is actually October 31st but we need to celebrate when everyone is around) and three different sizes of puppy prints wandering all over to signify their dear great dane that passed away, their lab (Violet's best friend) and a little teacup furball that rules the roost when all the family dogs are together! The horseshoe is because he shoes horses at the race track!

Now DH can't eat the cake, so I had to promise to make some of his cakes so he can take one with him. They just came out of the oven and he keeps asking "can I test them yet?". What about frosting? Nope, just wants the cake and he will be happy as a lark.

Tomorrow is filling with white chocolate raspberry mousse and frosting with chocolate cream cheese.

Exactly. But it was big and loose and just made me feel smothered. I remember I could never sleep on flannel sheets either.

I am sitting here listening to the biggest thunder claps roll in. It sounds like we are going to have one heck of a storm. I am hoping that it goes through quickly. I don't mind storms, but this one sounds dangerous. The thunder is still aways off, but it sounds like it is right overhead.

Today is the start of the local German-American club's Oktoberfest celebration. I'm planning to get a brat 'n kraut and hope they'll be doing the duck dance while I'm there. I know it's silly, but watching people squat and flap their wings always brings a laugh.

P.S. I dont have any Snickerdoodles for him. I don't do sweets for my home. I give them all away. Would an apple pie do? Although I do have a two pie, pie maker. I will let him loose in the kitchen.

hey, i thought this was a forum for swapping recipes, not husbands....
