Tidbits

I said I made a big pot of chili. Chili cheese tots! Half a chili dog! What could be a better use of that old chili?

Why, a chili cheese half-dog with some fermented peppers! With chili cheese fries! More fermented peppers!

Oh, bother! A big limb broke off at the crotch of this Braford pear tree. We planted that tree not long after we took up residence.

We managed to get it cleaned up and deposited onto the brush pile. We try to add new material to the top but it’s getting tall enough that sometimes we slide a bit.

Here’s Ginger Boy

I’m breaking in a new phone, a Galaxy S10. It has the same 2X optical telephoto lens on the back that the S9+ has but in a smaller sized chassis. I used all of that 2X for the Ginger portrait because he gets nervous when I seem to be paying him too much attention. The Samsung interface of the Android OS has been tweaked some making finding certain settings a chore but the lens options are still in the same place.

Yeah, we’re tired of chili, too.

I think we’ll finish off the potato salad today. The three bean salad just grows with new cans of beans added every now and then. I drain the juices and make a new vinaigrette for it at least once a week.

I’m pretty sure they’re not mooning the camera but the tails make that determination difficult, so who knows?
