It's that time of the year....

My son in law came home from the hospital this morning. He seems to be doing very well. Thank you all for the kind thoughts.
Would you believe that it could be snow flurrying outdoors at 40 degrees? Well it is. It is a dark gray November day. I just hope none of it decides to stick to the ground.
The squirrels are busy scurrying around in my front yard amid the pile of Oak leaves trying to get all of the acorns buried. Quite a job for them. I noticed my neighbor putting up a squirrel feeder next door. Jim had them on our trees at home. Squirrels can be ornery and messy but they are a lot of fun to watch. I noticed a robin still here this week. I am sure he will take off for southern parts any day now. As he was all alone he will have some flying to do to catch up with his buddies.
I have ham and beans cooking which I will share with my kids. They really smell good. I will tell this story in hopes that my sis in law isn’t reading this. A few years ago when she and my brother were first married she sent me an email asking how to fix ham and beans. I got quite a chuckle out of that because that is usually one of the first things a wife learns to cook. Of course not all newlyweds are as poor as Jim and I were when we were first married. Anyway, sort the beans, soak the beans, drain the beans, cover the beans with water, chop an onion in them, add the ham hock and cook until done, watching the water level and stirring occasionally. Nothing to it.
I need to finish this off and get busy.
