Valentine’s Day

I have failed, once again, in my lifelong quest to never make cute food again.

It’s always a disaster.

This time I tried to make Valentine heart cookies.

They looked cute before they were baked.

But they puffed up in the oven.

And came out looking rather eczematous.

I wasn’t sure if they needed frosting or cortisone cream.

Well they turned out tasty even if they weren’t pretty.

And I will continue my quest to avoid making cute food.

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

Happy 115th birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Back in the day, before he made it big, Dr. Seuss worked in the newspaper business.

My grandfather also worked in the newspaper business.

When my grandparents would have Ted over for dinner, he would always bring a book for my mom.

I love this edition of Horton Hatches the Egg.

Dr. Seuss inscribed it, and he drew my mom’s picture with Horton.

This inscription is not particularly valuable.

I checked.

But I am a nerdy book lover.

It’s one of my prized possessions.

Fog Advisory

A heavy fog advisory was announced on the local news this morning.

I opened the front door to check out this North Texas fog.

I burst out laughing.

It was just a bit of mist in the air.

It’s not really fog until you can’t see the house across the street.

It’s not even an advisory until you can’t see the house next door.

I’m laughing now.

I won’t be laughing so hard come tornado season…
