My roving photojournalist and former cowoker, Janice, sent me two beautiful photos of the sunrise.

I was inspired....

I thought this was a very good flashback (2015) in honor of this horribly hot week.

Mom thought she was being helpful but.......
If she expects a tip, the tip is there will be no TIP

Mom rec'd the below reply from Auntie Kelly RE: Ducks
"I think the ducks belonged to the residences next door to the hotel. They followed us into the lobby when we arrived at Highlander Hotel in Newtonmore, Inverness Shire. I did not see them again. We had to leave very early the next morning to catch the train from Fort William to Mallaig(we went across the Glennfinnan Viaduct featured in Harry Potter movies)."

Happy Tuesday and Reminder FFF

Thank you to our 

Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus   

Recently, while thumbing thru my favorite cook book..
A collection of recipes I have clipped out of magazines or received from friends, I happened on one in the Salad section that I had forgotten about.  Once I try a new dish I always give it a short review.  
This one was clipped from the local newspaper the News and Observer (N&O) on May 8, 2016.  It is a perfect side dish in the summer.

It made my eyes happy and my tummy happy. We loved it.
and I will make it lots this summer.  

Directions are a bit fuzzy I typed below:

Place a 2-qt saucepan filled halfway with water over medium heat and bring to a boil.  Add asparagus pieces and blanch 'til they are bright green.

Drain and rinse asparagus in cold water.  Transfer to medium mixing bowl.  Add beans and tomatoes.  Toss to combine.

In a small bowl, combine vinegar, cilantro and onions.Slowly whisk in Olive Oil, taste and season with salt and pepper.

Toss the dressing with the beans and veggies.  You can serve immediately, but the flavor will improve with a rest in the refrigerator for a couple of hours or up to 12 hours.

Side note:
I did not buy fruity Olive Oil I used the EVOO I had and I had navy beans here so I used them instead of Cannellini Beans. 
I don't like cilantro. I added Mrs. Dash Italian Medley seasoning.

Reminder Friday June 28 join YAM for FFF
It is fun.
for the simple rulz

Awww Monday from Kat and Rocky

We thank our Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus 

Dearest Auntie HiC

The peeps have been going nonstop since we returned from our 2 month RV trip. Mom wants to sell house & live in RV full time! Just kidding! 😹

Our Aunt Kelly is traveling abroad in Scotland. She’s having a wonderful time & sent this adorable video of ducks in the hotel! It really quacked us up! 🦆 Aunt Kell said the ducks followed them into a hotel in the Highlands.

volume up please

❤️ Kat & Rocky

Dearest Nephews

 Nephews KAT AND Rocky..unless Dad invents a way to pull  a portable jacuzzi tub behind the RV, I know Mom would never live in one permanently.
 The ducks waddling down the hotel corridor quacked me up  tooo.  What is the story behind the ducks❓‼️❓
