( Note at bottom)
Good Morning.
.It is Friday and Saturday again two days entry in one and I am glad, I feel the need of more relaxing and restoring this weekend. I won't see you again until Monday morning as I do not write a blog on Sunday, We will be in our Sunday morning meeting
I must go see Sara, Misty and Oreo early this morning, I won't get to see them again until Monday morning, her I go to Sara's Dog Training blog and see what Sara is showing me.
Now I am not sure what you are going to find down below this, it is things that came in
Friday and not placed maybe in their proper place and it has DAD a little confused, it doesn't take much to do that.
.I will need to explain the link below, it is Eric Shackle talking who was a good friend in my early days of writing. I am sure that you would remember me quoting him many times. You will notice that some of the links that he mentioned were lost when Google took over DAD

I think you lost a day, Dad... today is only Friday. That happens to me all the time since I work at home-- I forget what day it is. Happy Friday to you!

I'm glad you and Mary enjoyed the special treat! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Your salsa recipe looks like a good one!

Good Morning DAD...

After all the hard work you have been doing, I am glad you are relaxing. Writing a 2 day blog should help free up some time for relaxation. Just think you were the oldest Ameican blogger back when you were 93 and you must still earn that recognition. Eric Shackle wrote that wonderful article on you and captured you perfectly...sitting at your desk in front of your computer.

I'll be doing some relaxing myself today. I have a book due at the library tomorrow and I need to finish it. So I will take the time to sit with a cup of coffee and a molasses cookie and read. Hope you get to do something similar. Enjoy the day and the weekend.

Dear DAD,
I just had a look at CAM 2. The birds must have had their fill but they are sure to return soon. I bet your fingers smell good as you enjoy your cookies. Have a wonderful weekend and continue to seek happiness. Aloha....Sara's aunt

Dear Dad, Ms. Mary and Prince Charming:

Those are scrumptious-sounding recipes, Dad! And it sounds like you've had a very good week, with cookies, too -- wish I was there to share and have some coffee with you three! ;)

So glad to hear that your bird feeders are being visited by many happy feathered friends and that your computer is working great. With those good things and a sweet cat by your side, what more could one want from life? ;) Love to you all, and big purrs to the Prince from Jamaka and fams <3
