"mama mia, thassa spicy meatball..."

Yogi comes over yesterday to play, breezes right past Penny in the yard and goes to the door.  Spike cat comes downstairs to the door and he is like "let Yogi come in to play!".  SO, there is my dog, outside sleeping in the sun, while the neighbor's dog comes play with my cat....

Yogi's owner was out of town last week and was at a shop and saw a curious pottery item.   I don't have the pic, but a potter had made something like a long tube, doubled it back on itself to create a vase with 2 openings at the top.  Pretty Trevor shows me that, and I get my own ideas about what I might do to make a vase with multiple openings....

There was an ad on TV years ago, an actor was doing multiple takes of eating:  "mama mia, thassa spicy meatball!" and the point of the ad was it was killing him, for real, and for real he needed an antacid....
we get these corn chips called red hot blues.  They are yummy, and not really all that hot.  Penny likes them too.  But the way she eats them is HILARIOUS.
