Nature and Feline Friday

First thank you all for your wonderful birthday wishes yesterday.
It was indeed a fine day, it started out with a take out breakfast from Panera
Asiago Breakfast sandwich.    Afterwards to took a nice walk.  We had sunshine for my birthday.
I made a nice crock pot of soup on Wednesday, enough  last night's supper no cooking all day.
Baskin-Robbins stores have all closed so no Ice Cream Cake but we did have a nice bowl of Breyer's Mint Chocolate Chip for dessert.

******************************
Thanks Comedy Plus for hosting Feline Friday

Thanks LLB Gang for hosting Nature Flower Friday


 Speaking of Nature: As I was preparing this post the weather man was rumbling about freezing precipitation today.   I'll be eager to see what Mother Nature left for us today.

Collage photos from Shelley Lake.



Murphy, Stanley and Mom sent me this photo of UtaH Sparrows roosting 
in the same tree the Robins used a few weeks ago
The object on the left is a hook not a Sparrow.



Angel Madi January 2014..she was quite the leaper.

EARLY LAST WEEK I WAS COUNTER SURFING ON THE COUNTER BEHIND ME WHEN MOM BELLOWED
(SERIOUSLY THE WOMAN NEEDS TO USE HER INSIDE VOICE) 
I MADE A DEATH DEFYING LEAP TO THE OTHER 
COUNTER TO SEE WHAT CAUSED THE BELLOWING

Thoroughly Poetic #1 Thursday and Wacky January Holidays

  Today we join Two  SPOLED CATS 


Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

Here is our inspiration


HELLO





Today is Old Rock Day
Ranger thank you for starting the wacky tradition again
I'll be pawticipating in the wackiness often.

In our heart of hearts, Dad of angel Madi and I are mountaineers.  Who live in the Piedmont (which means foot hills) of North Carolina.  Our hearts come alive when we see a hill.
In the spring and summer of 2019 we spent many days traveling around to see the sights in NC
today I present 
Chimney Rock....a very very old Rock




Following information from the Chimney Rock Brochure
Chimney Rock is a 535-million year old towering monolith and has been an iconic focal point in Western NC mountains for over a century. There are panoramic 75 mile view of Hickory Nut Gorge and Lake Lure.  It is accessible only by a 26-story elevator.  You don't so much stop at Chimney Rock...as it stops YOU. Marvel at the beauty and majesty of 404 foot Hickory Nut Falls which is one of the tallest of its kind east of the Mississippi.


AND Ta Da another wacky Holiday is .......

In Purrsuit of Flavors: First Wednesday

 Today I join

hosting.


Da Twins and Da Canadian Cats have selected 
SAUCES
I will be showing you our favorite BBQ sauces for 
Beef, Pork and Chicken

I  see no reason to try to make a sauce when
you can buy it 87 times better than what you make




We use Carolina Treet BBQ sauce for Chicken
With its perfect blend of vinegar and spices that BBQ from Eastern Carolina is famous for, our Carolina Treet Cooking and Barbecue Sauce has been a mainstay of southern cooking since 1953. We also make available a mustard based, South Carolina style as well.

Side Note: In NC there are two camps on BBQ sauce: East and West.  
 Eastern NC: is vinegar and spice which is our favorite
Western NC: is very much like Texas BBQ Sauce more ketchup and tomato based


Sweet Baby Ray's is our go to BBQ sauce for Beef or Pork
Made in Chicago, IL
Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce was developed in the early 1980s by Chicago brothers Dave and Larry Raymond. They named the sauce after a nickname Dave had earned as a basketball player.

The blow photo is the best photo I've ever taken of a hummer
