THE BLUES …

… yes, even cowgirls get ‘em.

I am taking the day off. See you all on the flipside. I leave you with my cake of the day (for a work colleague of Sidey) and the food trivia of the day (directly copied from foodreference.com). Have a good week and be careful out there.

1833 Chicago, Illinois, was incorporated as a village, its population was about 200.

  1. I thought you would be having visitors this week, Cin, but I see Tandy’s comment. So – the blues are the real, feeling ones. I’m so sorry and am sending you lots of positive thoughts, hugs and wishes.

  2. So that’s your secret for being able to pack so much into a day – Viagra for women! Seriously, Cin, I hope those are some sort of sweet (liquorice perhaps?) and not something to be swallowed whole.

    That cake is beyond a triumph.

    Enjoy your breathing space – it looks like a good sunny day there for escaping the demands of your desk
