Color enhanced to show Sage. All other colors got enhanced to.
Same picture unedited
Ever heard of the Purple Sage? That's what the purple stuff is. (same stuff that goes in sage dressing around Christmas)
Prickly Pear apples are probably ready for picking, but I'll let someone else do that. Both times I tried I spent for ever trying to get microscopic thorns out of my finger tips.
Strawberry cactus fruit getting real close to being ripe. Much easier to get without paying a heavy price. Also very good tasting!
Abby had sent a care package for pepper to John Wells to give to me. He brought it over yesterday and presented me with a pocket for the Field Lab t-shirt. I think this is a conspiracy between him and Nick because he said Nick suggester attaching it with duct tape. I'll do that one better though and attach it with Velcro so I can have costume malfunctions.
The toys Abby sent to Pepper. At first Pepper seemed to be a little afraid of them. She still won't have anything to do with the ball or rope, but I did play with her with the stuffed toy last night and she seemed to warm up to it some. I guess we'll have to see how that goes.
Abby didn't leave me out of the gifts though. She sent me the small espresso maker and some coffee filters. I'll have to try it out, but making 8 cups of espresso in the morning instead of a pot of coffee may take a while. I wonder how that would work using the super Starbucks coffee Dennis sent me???
Pepper seen at the bottom of the door after hanging out in the bushes and getting covered with the damn gnats! Can't walk out the door without them swarming me to. Bug spray doesn't effect them at all and the flea collar I put on her is totally useless for them to.
And... For the last thread and the pictures there.
(#1) Empty plate. That was what was left of some Porcupine meatballs my sister sent me by RN. You really didn't think they would last long did you? Man I LOVE those things!
(#2) Water cooler and beer carton. Nick made me a gift of the water cooler and RN dropped off the 12 pack of beer while he was here. Unfortunately he wasn't able to stay over and made the return trip the same day. Probably good for him because it has been VERY HOT and VERY HUMID!
(#3) Starbucks Caffe Verona. Dennis Walker sent that to me saying I needed to have some good coffee for a change. It is very good, but I need to cut down on the amount I use to make it. I had to run around the block 4 times to stop fidgeting! This block happens to be 120 acres to!
Ran in to John Wells at the GS yesterday and he turned me on to a loaf of his solar oven Beer Batter bread. I know he said it had cheese and green olives in it, but can't remember if he said something else to? Pretty good stuff! I may take the remaining half to the legion in small slices to share with members. Then again I might eat it to. ;)
