    I do miss fall, the color changes and the tannic smell of the fallen leaves. Here stuff just turns brown a intervals and falls on the ground.

    I came in from outside a bit back, my gun is still in my waistband holster until I go to bed. The b&w cat’s sitting on the easy chair’s arm, facing me and pawing at the gun’s grip as if trying to get it out. This cat’s planning something serious.

    Its Mr Gil’s birthday today. Kiddo chose the cake…..a hamburger! They dont make the fries, which Ive seen made from biscuits, cake, churros, or pita, but its cute just the same. Lots of variation in decor too. So he gets a steak, a burger cake, and a new cordless drill since his old battery pack wont recharge anymore. Sounds like a decent day to me!

    I ordered a small rug to put in front of the TV. I received it a couple of days ago. It is cheaply made and the most hideous yellow/green shade with red designs (I thought there were other colors, too) in an Oriental design rug. I can’t get rid of it. 😦 My little doggie seems to love it. She checked it out, dug on it a little, rolled on it, and curled up and slept on it. She seems to be quite taken with it. Glad it was cheap. πŸ™„

    I’m making this bread now in my iron skillet. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    He has a lot of good ideas, including cooking and baking in a toaster oven, and how to make a “poor man’s dutch oven” out of two bread pans and a couple of clamps.

      Be sure and let us know how it is. Looks easy and tasty.

      Side note. I kind of like open shelving like he has, but I would never want it in the kitchen. Who wants to move everything to clean dust and, as it’s in the kitchen, perhaps some grease too? Used to I didn’t mind that. Now I’m old and lazy.

      I used to want lots of built in shelves, in the lgreat room too. Now if we move I plan on built in cabinets, maybe with glass fronts on the top.

        Ditto on the shelves!

        The bread turned out well, and it is as easy as it looks. Your hands don’t even get dirty. Next time I will make it in a narrower pan so that it is a bit taller, and not so wide (I used my big skillet this time), but it’s very good.

        I like that this guy makes things as easy as possible, using what you have in your kitchen.

      Unfortunately I’m not into bread making, just consuming. But I was so inspired by the photo that I went to the bakery, bought a large loaf of sour dough Kalamata bread and a large loaf of Sunflower seed honey bread. I’m already 1/2 through the olive bread…should’ve bought two of them. Addicting and collecting on my hips as I type.

    10 great screwball comedy films
    Emerging in the 1930s, screwball comedies were a wild new strain of fast-talking farces involving battles of the sexes and a world forever on the brink of chaos. Here are 10 of the best places to start.

        Never heard of that one before. I’ll have to see if it’s onYouTube. I absolutely adore HIS GIRL FRIDAY with Roz Russell and Cary Grant. Probably seen it 20 times…masterful fast-talk. How they didn’t stumble over their words is amazing.

        Turns out it is on YT and I flagged a copy to watch later. Thanks!

        BTW, I have in my files somewhere a “thank you” card Stepin Fetchit sent to my boss back around 1970…signature and all. Wonder if it’s worth any money.

    The cake looks great! They drew a buttercream box of fries on the side for me. Nice customer service at ralphs.
    Unfortunately kiddo got sick all over in the car on the way to school this am so I was cleaning up that all day and he missed school. No going out for mr gil’s steak dinner, he asked for chinee delivery instead! At least daddy doesnt mind.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
