This was taken the week of October 13th. See how green the trees still happen to be and only a very few leaves have hit the ground.

Have you seen the books called "Find Waldo"? Well, Waldo has moved into the cabin with his hoomin. Prince along with three other fellows helped Waldo's Hoomin move in yesterday. One of the hoomins stopped and picked up Pammie Pooh's cover trailer to help with the move. These five Hoomins worked really hard and then went to have a late lunch together to celebrate the completion of the job.
Later that afternoon, Maggie was buffin at this big fur ball in her yard. We then introduced them to each other and they would run around sniff and play with each other. All the other doggies who had come to visit Maggie have been tiny fur balls which made her think they were toys to play with. Not Waldo. He is much bigger than Maggie and his fur makes him even look larger. I think it will be grand fun for Maggie to have a playmate to live on the hill.
Waldo is a city dog so I told Maggie she could teach him how to eat persimmons . Waldo has never been without a lead or a fenced area so his hoomin was afraid he might chase a varmint and keep going. Gil, his hoomin should know that doggies do not wish to get to far from their food bowl UNLESS they are a beagle.
Now to share a recipe.
DO NOT THROW OUT THOSE EXTRA MASH POTATOES!!!!!!!!
Use them to make potato cakes.
Potato Cakes
2 cups of Mash potatoes
1/3 cup of sour cream (Some of y'all might use milk so only use 1/4 cup of milk)
1 egg well beaten
2 TBsp of flour
1 tsp black pepper (Some of y'all might like more so go ahead and add more)
Place a tsp of oil into a skillet or a grill pan. Put the stove on Medium and when the oil is hot, put 2 tbsp of mixture on the grill to make a 3 inch cake. My grill will hold 4 cakes at a time. When the cake starts to have little bubbles to appear flip and brown on the other side. This will make about twelve cakes. You might have to add a little more oil with each batch. Go ahead and experiment and add cheese and onions and for those who really like it hot, add some hot peppers. Enjoy.
The Kitty Justice is my Mother taught me how to NOT waste anything.

You are so right about beagles. We raised them many years ago and they do have a mind of their own, especially the males. If a male beagle gets a scent of something of interest there is no changing his mind until he has tracked it as far as he can. Waldo looks like a happy dog and reminds me of a dog we had when I was a teenager.

To answer your question, yes Connie was using her new camera.

I hope you have a great week!

Cheers,

Dear Dianne ~~ Great post and photos.
I hope Waldo has settled in and Maggie is happy to have a bigger friend. They should be company for each other. Poor Mimi will have another mouth to feed from her breakfast !! Thanks for the Potato cake recipe, I used to make them but haven't for awhile.Thank you for your kind words about my blog. Take care
my friend, Love,Merle. Peace to you too.

My sister had those kind of dogs when she was younger and she still thinks they are the cutest but boy you know them well. Sometimes, I would think we would find hers in China.
Glad to see Connie is enjoying her present. Peace

I do not think either Mimi or Maggie would like it if Waldo came for breakfast. Waldo watches TV all day while his hoomin is at work. Maybe when he gets home this afternoon the doggies can play. My Mother could make the best potato cakes and I have yet to get it down pat but everyone here loved mine so much not a cake was left. Peace

Lady Di,

My uncle had beagles when I was a kid and they would run if they got the chance. When Meeko was a pup, he would also, but in recent years he has got off his rope a few times and he just stayed in the yard. Of course if there had been a female in heat, he would have been gone.

Waldo and Maggie will be great friends, I'm sure. He3 is adorable.

Hope you have a great week.
Blessings,
Mary

Thanks. I think we all understand the attitude of a beagle. The one I like best is Snoopy. Don't have to catch him. LOL Peace
