Roderick spent months preparing this.
Hang tight, Scruffy, it’ll soon be over…
Alan would have reservations too if he knew Fly-Kitty-Fly was waiting in the top of that tree to dive bomb them!
Fireman Susan Sunshine has some mighty fine pies and wonder’s if you’d like some.
I’ve got dibs on that Key-lime! I’m the one that asked for that! yep! No punkin’ huh? no. I know you don’t like them. Oh well, Key-lime will do wonderfully! ;)
I asked Fireman and he just grinned and said send her on over.
Scruffy seems to be the smarter of the two.On the other hand….I didn’t know you needed reservations to jump off the roof…
I thought you could do it any ol’ time.
actually Scruffy has always been the anxious type:
As he showed here
Um… Bev…. send who over?…. certainly not me….
Cos I wouldn’t want to … you know…get in the way…
Anybody still here for pie?
I didn’t say Bev cos she squirreled away a whole key lime one.
She knows it’s OK cos she made a zillion (give or take) snickerdoodles.
Welll…I have to confess….it’s not just memory….
I know Scruffy so well because I helped him write his book.
they’re about to be confirmed
Oh hi Brian….
Pies for the Tiki…tonight it’s on me…apple, berry, blueberry, I said them all …um…overleaf…key lime, lemon cream…. peach…. and some others.
There’s blueberry this time…next time I’ll do raspberry for you, OK?
You could have a little Creme de Framboise with it…LOL
Hmmm…thanks Red….I wasn’t going to drink cos I’m so sleepy…but ever since I mentioned liqueur it has sounded good…
I usually think they’re too sweet…better for pouring over ice cream.
Oh, I know…little monkeys, could you bring me a bit of Drambuie please?
Thank you, Red.Cheers!
I’m heading that way myself in a minute.
Early for me but I’m tired.
Scruffy also seems to be the only one with any brains!
OFF THEY GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Straight to be standing on the ground.There is no tension on the ropes.Ahhhhhhhh.And the squirrel will just toss nuts at them, laughing.
Well After that incident at the light house it’s no wonder Scruffy is scared. But the turkeys really meant no harm!
Hay… Wared this nanner creem pye cumfrum..???O..o
Ooh! I have not had any Drambuie in years (not sure if I even have some in my stash, but I can tase and smell it as soon as it was mentioned (I am good that way) – being able to experience anything in my mind at the drop of a hat. And with food or drink I can do them quite rapid fire one after another (depending on my familiarity).I see we have more origami pants; I plan one day to do the really high zip line in the eagle conservatory – would not care to try a home-made one tho’. If I don’t have Drambuie, could sub some Amaretto with Scotch mixed (similar). I know I have Benedictine.
There may be some, but I have a big box of almond flour in fron of the booze and don’t want to pull stuff out. With flashlight I saw some Goldwasser, Frangelico, Blue Curacao, Midori and Cointreau- much more back there among the less used stuff ;-D
I have not yet tried the new Midori flavor that Patti Sanger had at a pool party on this week’s show, but easy to imagine as a mix.
I forgot to put this up yesterday. It’s the most popular store in town….the Ballard Origami Togs and Broken Old Tractors Emporium. (the BOTBOT store)
This is what Scruffy actually had in mind:
Roderick always has to up the ante….
Is Scruffy the only one who sees where the zip line ends ? What was Roger thinking ? That’s right ! He doesn’t….Scruffy knows that this won’t end well for either of them.
Named him “Scuffy?”..shoullda named him “Zipper.”
OMG!!! I’ll see if Susan can make another right away. In the meantime, have these two bites and don’t………. don’t………. well, just don’t!!!
I know you are tired from baking all night long, and you know I hate to bother you, but there’s this probem with Stel. She’s…….. she’s…………well, it’s kind of hard to explain, but she’s……….uh………. about to implode……… or explode……… or something! I think it’s not gonna be a pretty sight and you’re just gonna have to give her a key-lime pie real quick, I mean pronto!
But I made FIVE key lime pies! And I left a whole one for Stel in the fridge…I even labelled it so he Monkey wouldn’t eat it…
Didn’t you guys see it?
Oops… the tape is kinda long.
I only made about 75 pies…but that still means more than one of each.And I knew Stel liked the lime, so after Bev took one I realised I’d better save one for her, too…Didn’t want to be in trouble!
And of course, there are always a couple of banana cream ones for you-know-who in the fridge…
But they’re gone in no time, so I didn’t want him eating hers next…. especially cos there are no chocolate ones this time.
I like the lemon creme this time susan. That’s if no one else wants it.
I’ll have a little drambuie with it and call it a night.
Well, someone has outfoxed you about the pies but we still have a big problem with Stel about to blow if she doesn’t get some key-lime pie quick!
Hmm, Drambuie and lemon pie? Can’t say I’ve ever tried that. I believe I’ll join you Shika.
I’ll have just a virtual Kahlua and Presidente (won’t touch my own bottles). I can enjoy that as easily as other pleasures by virtual means. Fenton, please set me up with that with some icewater on the side!
I also made 16 little muffins that are GF (chopped up a couple of carrots, 1 zuchinni and 1 apple to mix with almond flour and brown rice flour. Added a mess of cinnamon (even tho’ my love thinks I eat too much of that spicy stuff- I’ll ask the dr next time about that) and even though he has a wholistic dr, he wants to just try same diet as me (will be easiest when we’re together). I just have to figure out what I can drink on the plane (now that I won’t have my normal gin). Does not seem that he wants to travel here yet, so I am getting really antzy to travel there. Have to ask my middle son about his free miles and I’ll reward myself with another trip in May or June Hopefully I can have BP below 150 by then ;-DCorrected because it looked like weight (that’s 117).
Good Night Ballardeers! Have fun at the turn over.
Drambuie goes with anything bev. I love it.
@Bri and Shika
You two have ruined hamburgers and beef pot pies for me, thank you very much.
@Bev, As a mom who put up with the “green vopher guts” talk and all of litttle boys at the dinner table, nothing could spoil my appetite. That was one of the things we spoke of while nest watching at Cornell’s RT Hawks (seeing freshly killed meat torn to bits for the babies). I was fine with watching that while consuming some good grass-fed beef.
