So pretty soon, he was eating on the back porch, then inside the back door, then, why the heck not, in the kitchen with George & Gracie.
Bella disappeared on Thursday. Coyote?
Thursday night is the first time since Bella came to live with us that he hasn't met me at the gate when I came home from work - hmmm - bad feeling about this.
I've called the neighbors and put it out on the neighborhood facebook page that he is missing. Hopefully he's just locked in someone's garage and will be home soon. Keep good thoughts... I'll keep you posted.

A co-worker and her husband recently celebrated their anniversary on the island Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean - her pictures were so pretty, I asked her if I could share them with you - especially for any friends on the east coast - spring is out there somewhere.....
George, Gracie & Bella liked the picture of the burds just lined up like a buffet
I wonder what it was like before?
And other kinds of fauna...
Remember the warm sandy feet when the cold winds blow.
Hope you enjoyed these pictures of paradise - Have a great week!

The team at Security Solutions has a lot of 12th Man pride ... well, all except for our controller, Brian, who's a die-hard 49ers fan. We love him, anyway.
|A brave man to wear red & gold in a sea of blue & green!|
Wishing our team the very best at Super Bowl XLIX!

My sister & I discuss "words" a lot (she is a self professed "word geek") - we'll talk about misused words, maybe misspelled - what ever. I thought of her when I saw this funny on Pinterest. I love the Thesaurus that is built into MS Word, don't you?
And I'm lovin' Pinterest - In fact the little sign that says "Pinterest is just electronic hoarding" fits me to a tea. Ha ha ha.....
Making Pumpkin bread pudding for dessert tonight. Hope it turns out tasty - I'll keep you posted.
Have a good day!

it's my birthday!
Thank you to our friend Michelle for the pretty Jacque Lawson birthday e-card.
The promise of longer days is holding my attention right now, and looking for some of my favorite spring flowers.
I don't know if it is a better addiction than computer solitaire or not???
My oldest sister, the rat, is in Hawaii...
Eating cocoanut shrimp at the Kona Inn. I'm sorry, cocoanut shrimp is just wrong in so many ways - however my next oldest sister and I decided that the reason I don't like cocoanut shrimp is that I prefer tarter sauce with my shrimp and we decided that, yes, that was disgusting.
The Shepherd & I went to dinner tonight with a long time friend from church that we don't see very often any more. It was lovely to spend time with her. We had Thai food - I had Prawn Pud Thai - it was delicious!
And tomorrow, I am going out to lunch with some other long time friends who I used to work with - we've been going to lunch about every other month for at least 10 or 12 years now - maybe longer. It is a comfort to have such long time friends.
One thing that is different this year is that there is no snow on my birthday. It used to be something that I could "count" on - but no snow tomorrow. The weather man says that there is a "0" percent chance of precipitation tomorrow! Yeah!
We had a quiet Christmas and a quiet New Year - spent New Year's Day at our friend Nancy's annual brunch. Not as many people there as previously - many have moved to be closer to grandkids (!) and sadly some have passed away.
But the food is always good and the music is even better. And every year, new people come. It is a fun tradition.
I'm just finish up my "treats" to take to work tomorrow (when it is your birthday at our office YOU bring the treats) I made Traditional Chex Mix - but I put Fritos and Cheetos in it as well as all the other goodies and double the sauce AND this year I put some Chipotle Tabasco sauce in the mix so it's got just a little bit of heat to it. Yum...
To counter the heat I've also made some Caramel Chex Mix - instead of the Cheetos, it's got popcorn and I put some little bitty green M&M's in it - I'm going to finish it off with a drizzle of "white" chocolate that's been tinted blue - - -
Can you say Seahawks colors??? One game separating us from Superbowl 49. WooHoo!
Have a great day out there!
