|The Monarchs are en route to Mexico
It is time to begin my annual rodent eradication program. I set several mouse traps by the door and I call it my defense in depth. The mice spend their time in the summer outside and start to look for a winter home about this time each year. The good news is that they are suckers for peanut butter. If it was only that easy to get rid of the squirrels I would have it made.
Here in the heartland, we have a Food Store Chain called "HyVee." They are based out of Iowa and provide the best meat I can find in the area. It isn't cheap but man is it good. They have a rib eye that you can cut with a fork. I marinade the meat and cook it slow over a hickory smoke fire. It doesn't get much better than that. I generally gook enough that we have planned overs as the base for other meals. I make what my mother called a hash with precooked steak and potatoes that is excellent. Throw in a side of the couscous salad I made and it is a meal fit for a king.
At what time in your life have you had problems with your teeth? As a kid I was a lot less than diligent about brushing and have a mouth full of teeth filled with fillings. A lot of those have been covered with a crown and I went about five years without a cavity. The last two times I went to the Dentist I have had to have a tooth or tho filled and the dentist has his eye on a tooth for a crown. he tells me that it is broken and probably will fall apart some day in the near future. Oh well, I have enough to smile.
Have a great day out there.
