If Bogey ever requested a playmate this little guy would be perfect. Is that the sweetest face!!
Maybe I'll just get Bogey a hat next year.

Here's the trick

When your born start out your life eating really healthy, then when you get older your arteries won't be clogged and you can enjoy that fried chicken, biscuits, gravy, pecan pie, etc.

But now here we are with sodium, fats and sugar are evil,  lurking everywhere. Oh don't even get me started on the calorie counting.   Keeping us healthy has always been at the top of the list.  Retirement is easy it's the rules of life that make it difficult. It isn't that one does not want to change their eating habits, it's hard to change your taste buds.  

Grilled  chicken and salads are fine but to a point.  But we all know that moderation is the key.  I will accept all recipes emailed to me as long as there is NO kale, green tea or spinach smoothies.

So here we are at this stage in our life about to celebrate our 40th anniversary and my dear Mr Doodles has been recently diagnosed with plaque.  Nope not your easy to remove dental plaque, oh no he got some sticky arterial plaque diagnosed by a cardiologist.

So now the next step is the roto rooter dude, aka cardiologist is going to remove that plaque.  Should be an easy procedure "they say". 

Here's a question if your heart and most of your arteries are positioned around your upper left hand side of your body/chest, why would the cardiologist go in thru your groin waaaaaaay down there.  Couldn't they train dentists to do  angio whatevers and go in thru your mouth, it's a lot closer.  It's just the way my mind works folks.

As always

Nope I don't have one of those beautiful Cossack hats with a long black tail that is our crazy cat  Bogey.  Bogey usually jumps  up on the top shelf of the closet mid morning  and retires for several hours.  I thought it would be because he was cold but oh no he was up there during the hottest temps the last few days.  Like I said  Bogey is a bit loony!!

A complaint

I am sick, sick I say of HOT weather!!!  If I wanted hot weather I would go see our friends in Texas and visit friends or go see step-momma who lives in the desert.

Having said all that Mr Doodles loves it hot, the hotter the better.  Guess Bogey does too cause he sleeps in the closet all day and it's danged hot in there.

My motto I can always warm up but sure is hard to cool down when it's...............


The good news is it's expected to cool down for the weekend cause FYI the pumpkins don't like it hot either.

Greetings from Sunny Southern California.......update

Oh I forgot.................greeting from freakin hotter than the hinges of hell Southern California. Holy crap I long for the cool windy days and brisk nites of Colorado.

In spite of the hotter than holy hell weather we are having fun doing what ever it is we do. 

By the way Bogey is pretty angry we made him bring his fur coat with us cause it certainly isn't necessary here!!
Temp today 109 degrees.......................yep 109!!

Todays update ...........temps have cooled drastically, plus there is moisture in the air.  Supposed to change to a bit warmer but praying to the weather Gods it stays out of the three digits.  Bogey still has that fur coat ya know.
One more update..............
