Autumn Buffet

Are you all askin' yourself the same thing I am?
Monday already? Yeah, I thought so. So if I tell you sumpthin, I think you'll understand.

This weekend was perfectly seasoned with just the right blend of herbs and spices and I have to admit, I indulged in a big way. Like Goldilocks said when she tasted the porridge "Not too hot, not too cold, just right!" Oh yeah, I committed the sin of gluttony when it came to the Buffet of Life these last few days. I have a confession - I had fun in excess and did not want stop to pound the keyboard.

Today is Dad's birthday and I thought I'd give honor to the man who chose to share his life with Mom and I. He has many fine qualities, not the least of which is sharin' his human food with me. Here you see us partakin' in an apple on one of our outdoor adventures together this weekend.

Dad, like most 2 leggers has a sweet tooth so Mom made him his favorite cake for his birthday, Butterscotch Coffee Cake. Click on it if you'd like to see the recipe.

Happy Birthday Dad, you old dawg, you!

Posting may be even more sporadic as the days are gettin' shorter and there is still some fun to be had. Don't go far because I'm still takin' pictures and notes and I will be sure to share them as time allows. Hopefully I'll have some fresh "Life and Times" of this Chocolate Labrador to share with you as the chill of the winter air forces me inside more and more.

I hope all of you are also takin' time to indulge in your very own Buffet of Life-wherever that may be. Just don't forget to let out a good burp now and then.

Hope your dad had a great birthday! I'm sure you'll enjoy all the fall days full of outdoor adventures. Make sure they take you to a lake so you can do some fall water retrieving. It's awesome! Have fun. Love, Sally
