I certainly miss Taffy, and I keep starting to fill her food bowl or scoop her box...oh, wait...things are calmer now and the other two are calmer as well. I can't say I miss the 4 AM hairballs.
Around the dust bowl: way too much wind, far too many tumbleweeds, which seem to target the border fence right outside my garage door. In bigger news, the 'slopper' wars are on for the Travel channel. Two local eateries in a contest for best cheeseburger-in-a-basket-covered-with-green-chili and a side of fries. While I've had green chili out on the prairie, I wasn't eating beef when first introduced to a slopper and still haven't gotten around to it.
