Desert Alligators

See the volcano in the background in this picture, taken looking south from Veyo, Utah?
Does it look primordial?
How about alligator country? Does it look like that?
I always imagined alligators in wet, green areas. 
I don't see wet.
I don't see green.
I see desert. (No, desert, as in dry land, not DESSERT! That's a sweet post-meal concoction.)
So if this isn't alligator country, then where does the alligator meat come from?
If we look on the other side of the sign, will there be dinosaur meat offered, I wonder?
Do you like to try new foods, ones that you don't normally eat?

What Would You Name Your Boat?

When I went with Bob while he went fishing (I was a boat rider. I'm not a fisher girl.) I saw a boat parked off to one side. When I read the name of the boat, I couldn't help but smile!
It was a fishing boat, after all, so "Hold To The Rod" made a lot of hilarious sense.
I tried to think of something I'd name a boat. Floatie? Fish Roof? Bobbin' Along?
No wonder I don't have a boat!
What would YOU name YOUR boat?

Hands Off My Food!

When my sons lived at home, I'd hide chocolate in the freezer behind the yeast. I figured my boys wouldn't have any interest in yeast, but I'm not 100% sure that they didn't ever find the chocolate, since they all show signs of high intelligence, and I could never remember how much I'd left from my previous raid. (There was always some...) 
So I can understand why Carolyn felt the need to mark the food she saves in our fridge. After all, Bob eats stuff from the refrigerator, and so do I. If we don't know it's hers, well, then, we might just eat it...unless she writes a message on the plastic storage container in permanent marker!
Message received.
Do other people eat your food?

I don't know how old these blinds in our house were, but the house was built in 1980, so potentially more than 40 years. The window it covered got more sun than the other windows, so that might have been part of the reason I couldn't get these things clean, no matter how many times I dropped them in a bathtub full of different kinds of cleaner.
Then Bob had a better idea.
A new window shade! A version that tolerates sunlight better, and can be pulled up and down with NO STRINGS!
Sometimes you just need to get something new.
What new thing have you gotten?
