A certain Doxie we all know and love will be bringing an entree of Citrus Squirrel (no squirrels were injured it is all fantasy) which is a South Carolina delicacy. Not to be outdone by Puddles a certain Doxie, I asked Mom to make some cacklin' Cracklin' cornbread and Chow-Chow....
FYI:  No puppies were used in the Chow-chow.  For those of you not from our neck of the woods, Chow-chow is a relish of pickles and spices served as a side dish at any Redneck function!
Cracklin' is pieces of  fatback (bacon fat) mixed in the cornmeal before baking.

We have company coming in this afternoon.  Visiting blogs might be cut this weekend.....
Happy Easter to you all,

Madi and Mom

TO DO WITH THIS POST AND DID NOT GIVE MY APPROVAL FOR THE FUZZY CREATURE TO BE HERE.
THAT BEING SAID MOM HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS FUN
SONG

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hopping down the bunny trail.
Hippity hoppin'.
Easter's on its way
Bringing every boy and girl
Baskets full of Easter joy
Things to make your Easter bright and gay.
He's got jelly beans for Tommy

Colored eggs for sister Sue.

There's an orchid (Sun Star/Ornithogalum) for your mommy
And Easter bonnet too. Oh!
Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity
Easter's on its way! 

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Look at him stop and listen to him say.
"Try to do the things you should."
Maybe if you're extra good.
He'll roll lots of Easter eggs your way
When you wake up on Easter morning you'll find those
chocolate berries (bunnies)
That he's hidden everywere.
Here comes Peter Cottontail Hopping down the bunny trail

 Happy Easter from Madi and Mom
We hope you enjoy

ANNOUNCEMENT: WE'RE BACK!!!!!

WELL FRIENDS IT HAS BEEN A GRUELING FEW
DAYS FOR ME MOM.  SHE'LL GIVE YOU A 'NUTSHELL UPDATE'....BUT LET ME JUST SAY
HBO WORDS WERE HEARD AND MADE NOTE OF
AND THERE WILL BE DEMERITS.
PEOPLE WHO LOVE CATS HAVE SOME OF THE BIGGEST HEARTS AROUND
~~~~Susan Easterly

COMPUTER ISSUES:
 ....STARTED ON Friday afternoon at 3 pm. I had been using antivirus program from NC State University that will terminate 4/30/11. I was trying to take that off Friday so that I could install McAfee Antivirus that we purchase.  Long story short by 7:30 Friday it became clear the problem was not to be resolved over the weekend.  Totaling Friday and today's time on the phone has been 8 hours to accomplish this task.  I'm happy to report we are 100% protected.
YES there were HBO words and thoughts all during the 8 hours.  I was about ready to toss the entire computer into the wind.


TORNADOES IN NC:

Saturday started out with severe weather warnings for the afternoon. We stayed close by the tv most of the afternoon. Then about 3 pm a tornado touched down about 40 miles south of us. It was moving fast and headed in a straigth line toward our section of Raleigh. At 3:45 pm they predicted it to be over an area by 4.   Thankful about that time Madi walked through the den.  Madi Dad said we need to move to the bathroom. I scooped up the Diva in a very unDiva like fashion.  Getting Madi in her carrier is like putting a child in a high chair except she has four legs and they all went in four directions.  I literally pushed her in her carrier (which she hates). Madi, Mom and Madi Dad were  in 1/2 bathroom with the weather radio. We were able to hear how the storm was tracking. Just as it got about 20 miles from us it turned to northeast Raleigh heading downtown. We are in the northwest portion of Raleigh. By about 4:02 is was in southeast Wake county where most of the damage occurred. We had no damage to our home but the devastation in other parts of our city and other cities is just horrible. I don't know if you have seen any of the pictures on tv but the homes and business look like a war zone.  Entire neighborhoods have been demolished.

PS:  Evidently Mom doesn't know the meaning of 'in a nut shell'!!!

Thank you to Ms. K for posting on her blog that we were ok.
