The wife cut's a donut hole in a piece of bread, tosses it in a fry pan & drops an egg in the hole. Flip when half done, leave as firm or runny as you like. The hole gets fried also & it's tough to get the hole away from the cook.
Sept already! Ahhhh, beautiful days, cool, crisp nights. No need for heat yet, but those days will be here soon enough. Let's see...anything exciting happen this week? Ohhh yaaa, night before last the dumb dog got skunked! The 10 month old, 85 pound one. Geepers, with all that weight you'd think some of it would be brains, but, no. Had to mix up the peroxide secret recipe and give him a driveway bath. Luckily he didn't get in the house before the bath. Other than that, I worked a bit putting firebrick in the Jotul 507's. I got new rope for the doors too. One of them will heat the sheep shed this winter. I think today I'll finish that project.
Hope you all have a good long weekend. Bless the soldiers that keep us free. It's easy to forget that every day one of them lays down their life so we can stay the good ol' USA.

Last week I heard a deep rumbling in the sky and went outside to the field; four restored WWII airplanes were circling overhead! Tight formation, I think they were trainers, or maybe Avengers. Big long cockpits and straight wings. One of them said NAVY on it. They flew overhead quite a few times! I took a mirror and tried to signal them, then pulled the flag off the house and waved it at them!!! Camera batteries were kaput so I missed any photos. I got chills from that impressive sight. DVC500 mentioned to me they must have been practicing for a Labor Day Airshow someplace.

Those folks were circling over Flemington, too. It was pretty cool.

Man, what a nice stretch of weather! We paid dearly to get it however!
