Max, the new dog

Apparently Max doesn't like cats!
He went a little nuts when Steve
played some cat sounds on his
Iphone. I supposed he'll use
this as his reasoning to get the new

Coco the Sassy Dog

Coco is very demanding about the correct way to
play the ball game!!

My little garden friend

This little fella is out in the garden every afternoon when
I go out to water. He must really like the warm sun and the
cool spray of the water. His coloring is so gorgeous, a flaming
red-orange, I just had to get a picture of him. Some ancestor
of his was in our yard last year too, but I don't think it was him.
I don't think dragonflies live that long.

Rhubarb Pie - YUM!

start with about 4 cups of finely chopped rhubarb
I tried to be lazy and put it in the food processor, but
it sliced it vertically instead of diagonally and I ended
up throwing away about a 1/2 cup of rhubarb.

put your pie crust in the pie pan

mix rhubarb with sugar, flour, eggs and milk
bake at 400 degrees for 50 minutes

remove from oven
mix egg whites, creme of tartar, sugar and vanilla
for a nice fluffy merenge, put it on the pie while it's
still warm. bake at 400 until the merengue is lightly
serve warm and eat quickly!!
