Rub a Dub Dub, I Sure Like This Tub!
Diane Murray's niece Kailey enjoys her Auntie's new tub
(almost as much as we enjoy sharing this great photo with you)
No, Timmi isn't getting ready for the Friday the 13th Biker's Bash in Port Dover, he's reluctantly wearing a Harley Davidson cap I got him. It had been a few years since I put it on him and his reaction was pretty much the same this time around..."Take the picture then take this thing off me, I do not wear hats!"
If I were able to enter our READERS PHOTO CONTEST, I'd submit this one, but alas, I cannot. But YOU CAN! We've already received a few very cool entries. You have until May 26 to find the ideal photo and send it to scribbles. You could win a mp3 audio/video player.
I shall blow bubbles...without using a wand.
Pool Inspector at Work
Looks like French Bull Dog Preston is quite interested in what is going on in the backyard fish pond found at the house he shares with his doggie sister Raina and human "mommy" Becky. "Mom" was cleaning out the fish pond with her new vacuum and Preston made sure the job was done right.
Timmi and I joined Preston, Raina and Becky for a visit and "lupper" (OK, yes we made that term up ourselves, based on the brunch idea, "lupper" is a late lunch or earler supper) Becky made amazing BBQ burgers and her sister Susan had dropped off her world-famous macaroni salad because she knew I was going to be there for a bite. How sweet is she?? "Mary", "Jack" loved the salad and I am so happy you are back in St Catharines (can't wait to see the new place).
Thanks for a great afternoon Becky, I'm happy to have been of assistance figuring out the pond vacuum hoses (who knew that the round end of the hose would fit on the round opening?) LOL
Spring Has Sprung in Becky's backyard.
Here's a shot of one of her flowerbeds.
Becky has big plans for the yard this year and Timmi and I can't wait to see it again in full bloom.
encore readers recipe:
pkg tubette macaroni *
dice 1 small red pepper
dice1 bunch green onions
dice 2 stalks celery
chop 6 boiled eggs
chopped red cabbage
1 regular size jar Hellman's Mayo
1/2 cup melted butter
All of the above quantities can be changed to suit your own taste. Cook the macaroni according to package
directions...drain Add chopped eggs and melted butter...blend well (the butter prevents the salad from becoming too watery the second day)
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.You may find that the salad needs more mayo after it's been chilled.
[*Ken adds: The tubette style macaroni is an important ingredient to this recipe. I guess it would work with other macaroni, but it just isn't "Susan's Amazing Macaroni Salad" without the tubettes. Susan's other secret ingredient is love and fortunately we have the kind of readers that know exactly how to add that special touch. Happy cooking...I'll gladly sample to see if you got it just right : ) ]
And now Timmi gives us
his imitation of me doing a back stretch...
Good Boy Timmi...let's go get a cookie.
