Video and Corn and Stewed Tomatoes

This is how I started my day yesterday.  I watched Ruby's Video 3 times... BEFORE I got mom and dad up.Then I let them watch it TWO times.  And THEN I watched it a bunch more while they drank coffee.. and guess what?????   I watched it sooooooo much that I ran my battery down!!!!   hehehehe...    I had to SCREAM at mom to go plug it back in, really quick.
THEN I told them they needed to get the lead out of their tails and get going on the Veggie canning.
These are the tomatoes, green peppers, onions, parsley, and celery which is NOT from my garden.
This stuff has to be all chopped and the tomatoes blanched and peeled.
Mom got 13 pints of regular corn and 5 pints of Mexi-Corn.   Then she had to pick a little bit of parsley to put in the Stewed Tomatoes.    After she got that washed and stuffs...   THE GUY came and I had to give him a TON of instructions.    That took about 87 mins..   Then back to canning stuffs.
These are the jars and tools and stuffs that mom uses.
This is what the stewed tomatoes look like.
And that's how it's done Son.
Now...   for the REALLY imPAWtant thingy for the day!!!
Happy Birthday     RUBY!!!!!!!!!      Hugs and Sniffs. Love, Frankie

That was the very best video ever - Frankie!!! You did such a pawesome job with your gift selections for the girls. They really looked good in those special visors.

Mom must have worked really hard to get all that work done - our humans finally found some good corn this weekend - we don't eat corn but they sure loved it.

Thanks for the good wishes for Phantom.
