Cowboys 20
New York Giants 8

Normally for a Cowboys win I would have a picture of that cute adorable little boy throwing up his arms for a touchdown. But his mom is a very good friend of mine and she loves her Giants like I love my Cowboys..and don't think it would be right to have her son seemingly cheering for a Cowboys win over her Giants..So you will have to settle for a mental picture of me running around in house slippers and drawers screaming and yelling for the Cowboys...Annie is still hiding under the bed..not sure it was from all the screaming or the sight of me in my skivvies and slippers bouncing around the living room.
All I know is they pulled another one out of their ass. But a W is a W. So far this season I am 141-73-7, against the line. I am having another winning season. Better than the boys..
We're fixing to have another cold front move in..will be in the 20's and 30's then back to 70 with a little rain thrown in. It's been like that for 3 weeks..30's one week, 70's the next. My rose bush is having a nervous breakdown.
I baked 2 batches of doggie bones for all my friends doggies. They are made with whole wheat flour, oatmeal, peanut butter, honey, canola oil, baking powder, honey and water.. The dogs love them. Plus I made a huge pot of turkey soup for Babs, and a gigantic turkey pot pie. I think we will be burnt out on turkey in another day or two. Jack and Diane's the old bar I used to hang out at changed owners and Babs and I went in the other day as we thought they were still making BBQ. But they weren't so we had cheeseburgers, and since they remind me of Whataburgers(Texas burgers)I was pretty happy. They have made some great changes in the bar. I think it's going to be more of a restaurant with beer instead of a beer joint with food.
They changed the name of it to ....well, fuck..I forgot...Something West. My brain is starting to fail me. I am sending out packages this week...Nitwit's granddaughter will get a little something, Buddha Boy and his folks are getting something, Sling is getting something, and Junebugg is getting something. I have more to send but may wait till after Christmas. If Billy Pilgrim would send me his address I'd send him a very special gift, but I think he's afraid Mrs. Pilgrim will get the wrong idea and kick both our asses.
Ah jeez, I'm still coughing...It's been 13 weeks and 2 days. I'm so sick of coughing I could cry,if crying was my thing.Well, I'm off to bed..See ya in the A.M.

I am totally impressed with your domestic skills. I don't even bake for humans, let alone canines.

Ted McLaughlin said...

An ugly win is just as good as a pretty one.
Hope you get over that cough soon - you're starting to worry me.

I first had a Whataburger in Tucson back in '81. Didn't know it came with mustard instead of mayo. I remember Mel Tillis did ads for Whataburger.

sageweb said...

Well I picked the giants to win..I really like the cowboys...but it was for money...I blew it..oh well. Cowboys would be the best team if they were consistant. You never know what team is going to show up.

TheWayfarer said...

Oh, it was a wonderful Triple Crown/3peat of a weekend:
Colts 32-21
Vikings 7-0
Cowboys 20-8
Hell, even "2" lost his freaking attitude!

I'm glad the boys won. All that food is making me hungry!

rosemary said...

i make suet cakes for the birds....that's as much as i am willing to in a domestic sense for the animals. we are mailing packages wednesday.....it is just too damn cold to go out and drive on ice and then try to walk on the stuff. if they get there in time, fine, otherwise too bad.

Big Pissy said...

Wow! You're quite the cook! :)

Glad your Cowboys won. :)

and I STILL adore Whataburgers. They have them in Alabama now...the closet one to me is in Montgomery...and hour and a half away. :(

Josh said...

Wow, those dog treats sound tasty. You sure do know your way around a bone... ;)


I have come here from Mr. Travis Ervin's blog. I have read some of your posts. I would revisit for reading more literature from you.

If you like short stories and paintings, then a short visit to my blogs wold be an entertaining one.

Oh boy loot in the mail! I forgot to tell you that the dog had puppies the day before Thanksgiving. I might do my Christmas shopping this weekend.
Who knew Football players could count that high. I guess they had to stop at twenty as they ran out of fingers and toes.
Now you have me hungry for a couple of sirloin burgers. There are some in the freezer...

Sling said...

Heidi said...

That is so neat you made homemade doggie treats! You never cease to amaze me, Jackie Sue.

Please tell me you've had a doctor check out that cough. That doesn't sound good to have it for that long!
