Sad News My Friends…

Haley jumped into the bed this morning at 4:46 AM and promptly sat on Gigi’s chest. I giggled and she sat on my chest.

“You think she’s gotta go pee?” I asked.

“Ya reckon?” said Gigi.

I staggered down the hall and let them all out to dump their night water.

They all came back in and insisted that I not go back to bed. Frankly, they were about as welcome as a boil on my butt. I’d turn one way and there was Haley. I’d turn another way and there was Cedie. They were constantly under my feet.

Finally I made a move to avoid Cedie when I heard a pop. Oh no! I broke the thong of my most favorite and coveted Sperry flip flops.

These shoes have been my traveling companions to many vacation destinations. I know they have been to St Croix at least 3 times.

On a lighter note….if you leave a jeep open all of the time expect a bird to crap in it. Thank goodness it was the passenger side.

I fired up the test kitchen this morning. While Terry and Michael test mango recipes I am trying to create the perfect hotdog chili.

Only two places on the planet have the perfect hotdog chili. One is/was Amos N Andy in Durham, NC. This was the hotdog chili of my childhood. The other is Greens hotdogs in Charlotte.

This morning a followed a meaty recipe that requires the chili to sit in the croc pot all day. I hope it turns out the way I want it to taste.

Hey Michael, can’t you figure a way to run some of that mango juice in your Rover? That is one huge mango tree you have.

You really shouldn't do that. The first thing that jumps out after reading "Sad news..." is the picture of one of the dogs! And then I find out it's just one of your shoes that died, and the dogs are fine. Whew!

I agree with Terri. When Michael started reading and saw "Sad news..." we were expecting the worst.
