Great avatar, Brad! Hope Bernie gets to feeling better and isn't just saying that so you don't worry.

My brother and I worked on the car last night for while. I bought new racing-style gauges for the dash, so we were working on placement. Fun stuff (but expensive!).

I thought I would shake things up a little bit with a new avatar. I just realized that, in the almost 5 years I've been here, I've never changed my av.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Good chilly morning, Christmas friends. It is supposed to be in the 70s a little later this week. I just wish it would stay chilly. Not much planned for today. I am going to make some minestrone soup in a bit. Our local grocery store makes the best Italian sausage. I would love to go to that new restaurant with Made. If we had not had the rest of the fried rice last night, I would be tempted to have some dirty rice or gumbo myself.

(The ones on the right are plain; the ones on the left are coated in powdered sugar. Messy, but oh so delicious!) Local bakeries, supermarkets, ladies' auxiliaries, etc. bake them and sell them. It's a Shrove Tuesday thing.
They look delicious!!

Enjoy your day.
Thinking of LC today!! Hope he really likes his new school

Kinklings are practically unknown outside of Frederick County, so I'm not surprised you hadn't heard of them. They seem to be cousins to fastnachts and beignets.

I wonder if a bakery would ship half a dozen to Massachusetts---? I haven't had one since the '90s ...
