    People laugh because my Leena loves to eat bananas, turnips (whole), and other assorted off fruits and veggies. She eats some that I don’t even eat. Crazy 4 legged hu-mon!

    Yep! My counter surfer snatched a brownie from a plate I was taking to a church dinner. I rearranged the brownies and took them anyway. No harm to the snatcher who looked very pleased with herself!

Halloween Costumes

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
