A birthday

My best friend Ohiophotogrl just had a birthday! We celebrated all weekend long. We saw a movie “The Fantastic Beast” and had lunch at Brio. Then we hung out a lot and had lunch the next day at a place called Penns Thia Grill.

Yummy!

Hope you all have a great thanksgiving!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

November 1st

Last night was trick or treat here I the 937. I couldn’t decide what to wear so I did costume changes.

Ok maybe more than a few but a Tator has to have options ya know! Hope you all had a safe and fun night last night. We had about 25 trick or treaters. Rain dampened the night but Ohiophotogrl has fun running around to all the neighbors to see what kind of candy they had….I’m not sure she will ever grow up. I think I’m ok with that!

Here is to a great November!

Applesauce

With fall being just a day or two away Ohiophotogrl thought we should make some homemade applesauce. It’s apple season hear in the 937 so we went out to Peifers Orchard for some local grown apples. This batch will be made with just apples, water and lemon juice to start. Then we will add some spices like cinnamon:0)

First thing we To is peel and core the apples

With the Apple peeler in the top photo it cores the Apple at the same time it’s peeling so it makes fast work out of getting the apples ready. Then we throw them in the pan with the water and lemon juice….

But a lid on it and wait for it to get all tender so we can squish it all up for our applesauce.

Then we will can it and it will look like this

12 miles from home

Ohiophotogrl and I went on a little excursion this morning. We went to a little town close to our home called Yellow Springs. The have a field of sunflowers every year about this time. They are beautiful. We forgot to take a photo of us but here are a few from the field…

There were lots of bees which was great to see

There were even a few that haven’t bloomed yet.

The morning was a perfect time to go! Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Now that funny

So my friend Dallas sent home a calendar for me. With this being July he thought I would find this funny and I do!

The bottom of the photo says Better….or worse. Now you know how I get my eyes checked lol

Where Have I Been

Sorry for disappearing on you. Ohiophotogrl and I have had some crazy times. So much so that I’ve been taking the photos and not being in them. I told her it was crazy but she insisted that I do a blog post about her crazy few weeks. First off we went to the Cincinnati Scotty Friends Convention. She dressed for every event….

She made everyone laugh and have a good time! We spent a week with some good friends! Then we got home and cleaned out the garage! We can fit a car in there now.

Then as we were cleaning the garage we heard a very loud crashing sound from the back yard

Huge tree limb fell! Crazy….Ohiophotogrl was just on her way outback when it happened. Thank God everyone was ok because we had to call someone to come get it out of the yard it was so big.

But now we are back to getting some routine in our lives. Let’s hope that happens soon! Take care and I’ll be back soon!

World A Fair 2018

Tonight we went to the World A Fair in downtown Dayton, Ohio. We sampled many different dishes and met some really neat people.

We met Kim and Tanya from the Montgomery County downtown Library. they shared with us how much the new library has made such a big difference in the community! Thank you ladies for your time and for being ambassadors for library! Then we met Barbara for the Dayton International Peace Museum.

We have added that to the places we want to visit this summer. Thanks Barbara! When we walked in there was a parade of all the nations that were represented, the bagpipers lead the way…

Then we went in and ate our way around the world. Not really we brought a lot of stuff home to eat this weekend. But let me tell ya they had food for everyone there.if you get a chance to go it costs $8.00 at the door the entertainment is free but it does cost to eat. The World A Fair is located in the Convention Center Downtown!

We even met Uncle Sam
