Hey, is that a real moose?

A birthday lunch for The Space Cadet (my honey!) and his older brother, whose birthdays are only 5 days apart. We went to one of those chain restaurants, you know, where the bright young waitress expertly scrawls her name upside down on the brown paper table covering.... "Hello, my name is Mary-Sue, I'll be your server today, the specials today are...." and where if you are careless enough to mention the word 'Birthday" out loud, a horde of motivated young people appear from the depths of the kitchen and sing an upbeat version of HBTY.... yes... it happened today, and the lucky celebrants got to wear MOOSE ANTLERS!

Baking Day

Today was definitely a day meant for creating yummy things to eat. Shortbread, Shrewsbury Biscuits (squashed fly biscuits) and Oatmeal with nuts and raisins and a few chocolate chips thrown in for good measure. Will there be any left by Christmas? Hmmmm, they probably won't even last till the end of the week.

End of the Day

This was the view on the way home from work today. The sun sinks below the horizon so early now, but of course, it's not the sun leaving us, it's us on the Earth spinning away from the sunlight into the darkness.

Investment Man

The Investment Man just left. A true salesman. He can talk non-stop about investments, stocks, Bonds, balanced funds, asset allocations and dispensing financial advice for hours. And he's so darned ENTHUSIASTIC! When he left I was exhausted and had to have a big cup of tea before I could think straight again. But he's the sort of Investment Man that has my interests at heart.... I think he does.... hmmmm.....

Markham Fair

You just have to admire the dare-devilry of these demented motorbike stunt riders. Can you imagine trying this for the FIRST time?

Rook's Nest

Perhap's a blog isn't for me, I won't know until I try it.
