Pumpkin Carving!

We had a great night carving pumpkins! Mine is a dragon type thing, and Trox did Captain Jack Sparrow! We had so much fun...

Po Ta To!

The season has been kind of a disappointment for our garden. We worked real hard on getting things right, and then the weather screwed us over! We have enjoyed many treats from our labors, though. Strawberries, zucchini, yellow squash, cabbage, and few tomatoes have been consumed and loved.
Last month we had a few organic russet potatoes hanging around, sprouting roots, and Trox decided to plant them to see what happens. Since the season is pretty much over, and we were so late in planting them, we decided to dig them up. To my surprise, we got some tasty looking baby russets! We are gonna treat these babies right somehow, I can't wait to eat them. Also, next year, planting them earlier and taking care of them all year!

Speaking of potatoes, Trox used to go to this website that had funny flash videos, this is one of them...

E G G !

Well, it has begun! I was at work this morning and Trox called around noon, very excited. Ethel, our Golden Sexlink, produced our first egg! We were so excited, and I couldn't wait to get home to check it out.
The egg was a little smaller than ones you get in the store, but it had a nice shape and real good brown color.

We decided to scramble it with a little salt and pepper, and it was most delicious, very rich and tasty.

We had a celebratory tequila shot, Ethel, here is to you!

He He

I was bored last night, looking through some photos. I came across this bad boy...

I love going to Comic Cons, one of the things I love, is thinking about all the time put into making the props and costumes for these things. Some dude (pud?) sitting there, sewing a Captain America suit while watching Buffy, The Vampire Slayer.
I have gone to several of these things in the North West through the years, but never made any attempt to dress up. Below is what I think something like that would look like...

Man, oh man. I really enjoy summer with all its delights. It always saddens me when it comes to an end...
