Cookies on the dashboard

Laroo in yesterday's comments made the suggestion to bake cookies on the dashboard of the truck. Anything like that is possible in 110 degree heat. So today we're doing just that. It's the perfect activity for Gracie and the friend that's coming over to play this afternoon.

Cowtown ended up with a high of 112 yesterday afternoon. At 4 p.m. it was 114 at the lake. . . . definitely not a time to be sailing. We probably could have baked cookies on the poop deck.

Today promises to be a a bit cooler if you call 109 chilly. Yup. 109.

Lunch today with an attorney friend. But before that I'll hit the lake to check out the boat and its mooring lines. The office computer is being returned at 1:30. Late today I'll drive north to spend the night in the RV to make an 8:00 a.m. appointment on Wednesday for repairs. When that's done I'll drive home trailer in tow.

Busy day. Busy tomorrow.

BTW: I hate answering the telephone. I also hate stupid answering machine messages. To shake up a bit what's on our machine I've been recording "interesting" greetings. Here's our latest greeting. Feel free to copy and use it.

Hello, you've reached Bob and Candace. We can't pick up the phone right now, because we're doing something we really enjoy. Candace likes doing it up and down, and I like doing it left to right... real slowly. So leave a message and when we're done brushing our teeth we'll get back to you.

ROTFLMAO! @ the greeting Bob! That rocks the house...I may have to adopt that...and hey, that is not a bad idea...lets cook on a heated skillet. I am going to put mine outside right now so it can be ready to go by the time Kurly and the boys get here!

Laroo: Looks like the cookie deal is off until next week. I'm leaving now (10:45) and not back until 3 or so - - - and Wifey will not allow me to "bake cookies" on the dash of her BMW. Well, lah dee da da, Wifey. I'll let you know when we get around to doing this. Gracie is all jacked up about cooking something on the dash of the truck and won't let me forget.

Fox: Glad you liked the message. Think I'll post any others that wind up on the machine.
