What a sad start to my day when John called me from work to say that he saw a dead dog on the side of the road just down the street. He was on his way to work and stopped by the police station to tell them about it so they could have the terrible task of notifying the owners. At first they said it was probably a coyote but John told them no, no, he didn’t think so because it had curly hair like a poodle. So he was bummed out all day and I was bummed out all day thinking about the poor people who would be getting bad news.
Then he got home and told me it was still there! You’ve got to be kidding me, how could they leave someone’s pet on the side of the road? Well, funny thing… as it turns out, it was a log. Yes, a dead log. I guess coming at it from the other direction made it a little more clear. Now listen, you people in town please let’s not pass this around okay? I’d like to think that if I have to call 911 that the police will take me seriously and show up. And I can picture how the police blotter’s going to look for this week:
Man reports dead log on Lyman Rd. Responding officer reports that log is still dead.
I guess we can forgive John for this mistake since he ran over his glasses Sunday with the lawn mower. Not the blade part, just the tires which made them a little bent not completely chewed up. Of course he’s blaming the trees with the branches that are too low that knocked his glasses off. I’m guessing he’s going to take revenge on the trees so I’ll have to remove some part from the chainsaw.
Now, getting back to egg salad sandwiches and dogs, this isn’t really a recipe but a lunch idea when you have next to nothing in the refrigerator. It was too hot to mosey out to the market and I was down to bare bones for food. Always have eggs & as luck would have it, also some bacon. Rather than just a boring egg salad sandwich, I cooked up a pile of bacon, crumbled it, mixed it in with the eggs, and crammed it into a hot dog roll.
This is a picture of my SECOND egg salad with bacon sandwich because when I went to get my camera (just in case you can’t picture what an egg salad sandwich looks like), I came back to an empty plate. Am I ever going to learn? And talk about attitude! I asked Lola “did you eat my sandwich?” and got this…
She couldn’t even look me in the eyes. Did she eat the sandwich…geesh, did it have bacon in it? Is she a food thief? Yes, yes, and yes. Guilty as charged!
