Yes, that's right, this isn't just another Friday in September, today is September 10th, and that means it is the sixty-fifth anniversary of the beheading of Mike the chicken. I thought it was enough to mark the day with a headless hencake, but apparently there is an actual festival in Mike's honor: "Attending this fun, family event is a No Brainer!"
At first I was kind of appalled about the whole festival thing, but now I am starting to wonder about next year. I shouldn't judge without checking it out at least. Oh, but of course we have Maker Faire to think of. It's a shame when opportunities on the social calendar conflict.
Making something of very little is a specialty of mine, so it's not too surprising that I got up to make pancakes on a busy school morning.
Nota buena: I was updating the calendar to reflect all the different school holidays, and I made a happy discovery: William and Alex will have Groundhog Eve off, so they can help me prepare for next year's Groundhog Day observations. It is these holidays and traditions that make our lives richer, worthwhile. Life is beautiful.
And more! Good news abounds. Peace is restored!
Ferris and Benjamin are
Look at Benji's sweet face. He is the very picture of brotherly love.
Ferris eats anything. Just saying. Watermelon. Cheese, he loves cheese. And this morning he was macking-out on a piece of asparagus. He was eating it so enthusiastically, and with such satisfaction, that I thought: "No one loves asparagus that much. I don't love asparagus that much." And I do love asparagus, but Ferris ate the whole piece and looked euphoric, like a foodie. No one loves asparagus like our kitty. Steamed, no butter... he probably would have loved it even better with cheese.

You were probably a bit turned off right from the start. Headless
And now you are at the end, and maybe thinking, "What was that all about?"
