Fish Fry Today

Our neighbor tries to have a neighborhood fish fry once a year.  He is quite a fisherman and catches a lot of yellow bass.  He fries them up in bite size pieces and it is just delicious.  Then the invited neighbors bring the rest of the pot luck dishes and desserts and everyone has a great time.  They have set up a screened in tent this year under  a good shade tree.  We have been having way above normal temperatures and today the wind is to switch to the NW and start cooling down for a day or two.  It is 72 now and I see the trees are beginning to move a little.  It will be a fun day with good food.

Waiting for Big Sister

It was the first day of school.  Their big sister started Kindergarten.  She gets to ride the bus to and from school.  She loves school and also the bus ride.  Here you see her little brothers waiting in anticipation for her arrival home.  They get so excited they scream with delight when they see the bus coming.  Next year her one brother will start pre-school, then I wonder how little brother will feel.  He will really miss them both alot I am sure.

The Neighbor's Dog

My neighbor has the cutest little Pappion.  Anytime I call him, he comes running to have his ears scratched.  He is so cute.  If the neighbor just says my name, he gets all excited and wants to come over.  He knows I will scratch his ears and pet him.  He is such a little dog but he just loves snow.  He will take a running jump right into a snow bank.  He will jump in the last piles that are left in the Spring.  He's so funny.

I celebrated my biggest birthday yet.  There was all kinds of great food.  All my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were there.  Several friends joined in and extended family.  A good time was had by all.  Lots of visiting and eating.  A gorgeous birthday cake made of both chocolate and white.  It was a big day and I sure had fun.

My oldest son is staying with me this week.  He has done a bunch of little odd jobs around the house for me. He has fixed some things I would have never thought of.  Got both screen doors to close properly.  Helped me clean out the liquid softner in the washing machine that was all plugged up.  Put in new light bulb I couldn't reach.  We are having fun eating out at different places too.  Having a good time.
