A little of this, a little of that

I'm here today with a meandering post of pictures taken with my phone.

Here we have Oscar. He is an at-least-6-year-old dachshund (we got him from a shelter and couldn't be sure of his age then and people are always saying he looks older, so maybe he is). Here is Oscar's morning routine:

-Get out of little dog bed beside people bed
-Follow Kimberly to see if food will be immediately served.
-Sit and stare at Kimberly to see if this will induce her to immediately serve food
-Give up; find the softest possible place on the couch
-Move only when food is served

When he's really full of himself he likes to make a small complaining "uhhhhh" sound just under his breath if you disturb him when he is in such a state. Like, if you ever so softly stroke his silken ears...he goes "uhhhhhhh...uhhhhhhh...." with each breath to make it clear that you are surely causing him mental and emotional, if not actual physical, pain. He is spoiled, and its a mystery to me how he got that way.

I love me some Oscar.

We saw this product in a store that was going out of business. Anything look strange to you?

How about the 4-year-old with the mustache? Maybe he's in some sort of a costume, but that isn't readily apparant to me, so I rate this picture "Weird".

My favorite colors as a little girl were pink and purple. Can you imagine the hyperventilating had I seen this car way back when? (On the right just behind The Pink and Purple Wonder you can see the front quarter panel of my beloved light blue Blazer. Aren't you glad I told you?)

This was enjoyed by Walt and me this past Saturday at the delectable Grits and Groceries. This is:
Miss Linda's Scallops: Pan Seared in a Lemon Caper Sauce with Cheese Grits, Mushrooms and Chopped Bacon.
Yes, all those words need to be capitalized in order to convey the delicious-ness of Miss Linda's Scallops. They were preceded by Hattie Mae's Tomato Pie and followed by a slice of chocolate chess pie. Can I please go back next Saturday and every Saturday after that??

You are killing me with the Grits and Groceries pics! I need to come visit just so we can eat there! :)

Kimberly said...

Yes, you do need to come visit and we will take you to Grits and Groceries! And after you've eaten there you'll never want to leave and then I would be so happy that you lived with me, and we could play all the time!

Oh my that looked so good, and scallops, please do not play with my taste buds like that.

Oscar looks so much like Libby. She has lost almost all of her beautiful auburn color, except on her back and ears. She is spoiled time 100. When she does not get what she wants she lets out a bark. And another. Until you get the hint, or tell her to be quiet. Then she pouts under the bed. Like a kid.

A very grumpy, spoiled, overweight kid.

Thank you for the verses you have left on my blog, so perfect and timely!

Wow, those scallops look great.
I'm in the process of planning meals for the next 6 days. Not sure if I can get decent scallops in VT!!
Lily loves to lay on the sofa pillows. She also likes to move them around. Oscar doesn't look very dachsund-y in that photo. More like a retriever, maybe it's the angle.
Or all the pillows....
