James' Squirrel

My inlaws have made friends with this little squirrel and it comes to the house wanting walnuts or pecans daily. Here my father in law is feeding it off of his knee.

Beautiful Art

Entries for an art contest at the Hirshorn Modern Art Gallery in DC. The rule was that the artist could use only one sheet of paper.

This 'n That

We've all put away our BBQ grills for the winter and will be so anxious to pull them back out our first warm day. I have found several stores (not just in the south) where you can get a FREE *Bar-B-Q Grill!
You can get a free BBQ grill from any of the following stores: A&P, Albertsons, Costco, Dan's, Food Lion, Fry's, Kroger Macey's, Big Lots, Brookshire's, Lowes, Publix, Safeway, Sam's Club, Target, Vons, ACE Hardware, Wal-Mart, and Winn-Dixie.
I especially like the higher rack - which can be used for keeping things
*Please do not attempt to take a cart as you will be charged if caught*


I hope everyone has had a wonderful week so far and will have a relaxing weekend.

Maybe you would enjoy this recipe. I have made it several times for my family and they love it.
