The house was a popular bee destination today.
From (sort of) fresh cold water
To fresh hummingbird food.
They were all over our back yard. Hope they’re healthy and happy.
On Friday morning I decided not to pack a lunch and instead go out. I’m glad I did. It was a very pretty day which is good for my SPOD series and turned out to be good for hawk spotting.
There’s an empty building near work that has a parking garage overlooking some farmland.
On this day there was a good dozen hawks looking for food and fighting over territory.

I’ve always loved JCB (what all the cool people are calling it) but I never suspected it could turn a perfect little dog into the epitome of evil.
It can take those you love and make them do unspeakable things.
Today Susan and I went up to UNT to do a short Irish dance class.
Afterwards we went wandering around downtown Denton and stopped in to the Abbey Inn restaurant (and pub) for lunch and a few beers.
Susan had soup and salad and I had a wonderful seafood stew stew and grilled-cheese sandwich.
Yum. Highly recommended. Click the picture for more pics of good food.
Two years ago Chip the Miniature Schnauzer became part of our pack. Here are a few things I absolutely love about this remarkable dog, in no particular order. These behaviors are part of his nature; we have not taught him any of this.
Chip spent his first three years of life in a dreadful puppy mill before it was turned in to the authorities, the dogs seized, and this boy sent to the Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of North Texas. They cured him of a severe case of heartworms plus other parasites and injuries. Now Chip is strong and healthy, runs and walks with his humans, even 3 mile walks, which keeps him in fine form at 15½ pounds. If you have room in your home and time to devote to a fabulous family member, consider adopting a Mini Schnauzer from MSRNT. They’re great!
Yet more dinner. This time with more ‘ritas
I started off with the “World’s Freshest Margarita”
Susan has nothing to worry about, at all. They claim they use Patron but they also use some orange liqueur that is way too sweet.
Next some fajitas and a tall Blue Moon. Oink. yum.
Followed by a brownie sundae. Double-oink.
Sorry, more dinner. This time with ‘ritas
It’s been rainy and gray in CT so the best I can do is show you what I’m having for dinner.
Easter dinner of chinese food which started out with a yummy eggroll and steamed dumplings.
The North Texas Irish Festival is coming up this weekend? Got your Irish on?
