Quick check for a rolling pin!

My rolling pins are used exclusively for pastry.

Congratulations to Admiral G and Paul, thank you for this and all of your other lovely wildlife photos. As a big, big, big fan of urban wildlife, I especially appreciate your ability to find such beauty right outside of your own front door.

We have free-cycle out here too. Eric and I divested ourselves of a bulky entertainment center that way. The recipients were going to re-purpose it into a wardrobe. It was a win-win.

Quicker than free-cycling is just leaving things on the curb with a sign "free". This probably only works in urban areas with high traffic flow. Eric and I upgraded our coffee table a few years ago. We brought the old one out to the curb and it was gone very quickly.

I think it is important not to clutter up landfills with items that may be of use to another person.

Back from the hospital. 6 stiches, but still leaking a little. Took some aspirin so should be fine by the morning.


Aspirin is a blood thinner - not the best idea if you are still leaking.

Switch to Ibuprofen if you continue to need OTC pain relief.

I think I know where Gene Roddenberry got the idea for the model of the USS Enterprise.

I had a turkey carcass and some chicken carcasses cluttering up my freezer, so I am making poultry stock today. I just lifted the lid to skim some fat off the stock and I noticed that part of the keel bone of the turkey was sticking up out of the stock. It looked just like part of the Enterprise.

Even so I still buy all my furniture used, simply because around here you get better quality for less money.

You often find that "old fashioned" furniture is made to a much higher quality than modern mass produced stuff, and that good quality second hand items are indeed a better buy.


The only thing that bothers me about used furniture is the cleanliness factor.



Eric and I got a real steal on an extremely well made used dining room set about 15 years ago. The components are SOLID!!! They really don't make furniture like that anymore... at least not in an affordable price range.

Instead of "wear and tear", we prefer to refer to age marks on the finish as "patina". We've had many a happy meal with family and with friends around that table.

Cute, but a bit impractical, I think. His nose would keep running into things.

Covers two people pretty adequately, but I daren't say, I would get banned :-)))))


Mister S.

If you have not made any New Year's resolutions yet, I have a recommendation. Please consider the following:

"If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."

Sincerely,
Crazy Raccoon Lady, Manager
The Critter Cafe

I must admit that the amount of time I spent working rather than preparing for visitors did cause her some concern. Fortunately her raccoons picked up the slack.

Yes. Snowball, Tiny Timathea, Buddy and Herman Von Vermin all worked their little raccoon fingers to the very bones helping me to prepare for the holiday season. Fortunately, Santa was very, very good to all of them.

(Pookers, when you have a little time, will you please post that Facebook picture that shows just how good Santa was to the raccoons this year...)
