OMG! What is that?

I'm looking out the kitchen window at  the golf cart and I see there's something on the steering wheel.  What is that?  I dunno! so I better get out there and see what that is!

OMG! It's a big beautiful purple tissue paper flower.  Who would leave such a lovely giftie for me? I have absolutely positively no idea! Whoever you are; you didn't have to do that but I sure am glad you did! I've got the feeling: somebody out there likes me! There's not a nicer feeling in this whole world.

If I knew who you were, I would give you A BIG HUG but since I don't I'm leaving it here for you instead. Hope you like it!

Saturday . . .

Yesterday's Casino Nite was tons of fun. A good turnout so all the games were busy.  Three hours went by in a flash.

Today I'm at the farm and here's a picture Andy took of me feeding my face. Dinner was delicious. Omaha tenderloin steaks, twice baked potatoes and green beans with mushrooms. Why does everything I don't cook taste so good?

The boys and I will meet at the Florida National Cemetary tomorrow to celebrate the one year anniversary of Dad's death.  Hard to believe a whole year has passed.  We still miss him but celebrate him resting in peace.

Thursday & Friday . . .

This evening is Hand & Foot at Doris's house.  Tomorrow is:

Setting up is at 10:30 tomorrow morning and games begin at 6 and go to 9 p.m. We'll have Black Jack, Texas Hold 'Em, Card Bingo, Dauber Bingo, Horseraces, Chuck-A-Luck, raffles, popcorn & gift cards.

My baby is cardBingo and even though I set up 12 seats, there is never enough room and folks will be standing around waiting for seats.  Wish I could accomodate more but my space is limited.  Hopefully, we will have lots of happy winners! 

Hope you have a fun w/e too!

Cherry crisp . . .

I took this dessert to the Ohio dinner and SUSAN asked about it so I'm posting the very simple recipe for it.  Easy & dee-lish! What could be better?

Cherry Crisp
2 cans cherry pie filling
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 1/2 sticks of melted butter or margarine


Grease or spray 9 x 13 pan.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Pour pie filling into the pan. Sprinkle cake mix onto the filling.  Pour melted butter/margarine on top.  Bake 40 - 45 minutes.  Super easy.

Ohio . . .

Today is our OHIO dinner here at Lake Bonnet Village.  We do this every year & have a pretty good crowd.  Other states that have dinners are: Michigan, Indiana & Illinois.  So that everyone is included, there's a "Best of the Rest" dinner too.  

I'll be taking a 9 x 13 pan of cherry crisp and a bucket of KFC chicken.  Yummy!

February , , ,

January weather was terrible so I'm happy to Welcome February to my neighborhood.  Hopefully, the temps will warm, the rain will stop and the sun will finally shine again.   

Can you tell that I'm really anxious for things to get back to normal here.  Until that happens, I'll do Annie's meme for today. 

People tend to be a bit SUPERSTITIOUS. Are  you? 
1. Do you believe in luck ? If you play cards or go to Bingo with me you will often hear me say "some folks are so lucky" so I would have to say I believe in LUCK.
2. Do you put coins in a new purse to give the user a good start?  Oh yes, I do that and when my coin purse gets heavy and I have to get some of the coins out of there I refill it with 5 quarters, 5 dimes 5 nickels and 5 pennies.
6. Are you more careful on Friday the 13th?  No because 13 seems to be a lucky # for me.
7. Would you open an umbrella in the house?  Oh yes, no problem
8. Some think smelling dandelions will make you wet the bed at night.  True? False?

9. Broncos or Seahawks in the Superbowl? ( I suppose it has something to do with the meme!) I'll be cheering for the SeaHawks because the Broncos have already won a Super Bowl.

Thanks to  Annie  for the fun meme.
