Pie & Wood

Sometimes my mom just does CRRRRRAAAAZZZZZZZZYY Stuffs. She calls this a CenterPiece. Goooood Grief... there aren't even any Milkbones on there with those antlers and buckeyes. BAH

Now this is what I had my mom and dad do yesterday. They split and stacked a bunch of woods for my woodburner stove.

This is the woods splitter thingy. It kinda scares me so I don't help much with that Pawt.
It belongs to our bestest neighbor... Jim the Grinch Guy... He even gives us the TREES and... comes and helps us do the splitting. I just call him Jim the Grinch Guy... to tease him. hehehe
We have this big thingy in my yard. It makes my house warm when we DON'T use the woods burner thingy. BUTT we don't use much of what is in the tank. We heat for FREE with the woods stuffs.

This is ANOTHER one of the Snowmen thingys that ol' Crazy insists on having out. She put it up after the woods stacking stuff was all done.

Now I told you about my mom's pie crust stuffs yesterday. This is an example... butt it is NOT Milkbone Custard.

This one was Apple and dried Cranberry and dried Blueberry with Brown sugar and Cinnamon Red hots thingys.

This is what it looked like before my dad got into it. BaWaaah

PeeS.... Somebuddy asked me if it would be OKAY to write our Adoption Story and our Parent Pressie (and why) thingys on the SAME post... That is PERFECT. It is how I am gonna do mine.

BUTT I will we putting a Link up to Minna Krebs' blog though... beclaws she is hostessing the Adoption pawt.

Remember to put something on YOUR blog so Your readers will know that THEY are WELCOME to Play too!!!
PeeS... Did you guys hear this??? Puddles NAMES her Calendar. She says she calls it Marie. What a nut.. Marie the Calendar.. I think I'll just name my three calendars May, June, and April. BaaaWaaaaaah Marie the Calendar... that just takes the CAKE or PIE. haw haw

That is a most curious centerpiece. Happily, no snowman persons in it, right?

The wood chopping is tiring for the humans even with the choppy machine, but much better than the propane.

Wiggles & Wags,

PeeS. Um, do you think it would be okay if I puts up my Christmas pressie thing on the Friday after Thanksgiving? You know...the day where they all go shopping? Cuz between my adoption story and Brudder Ranger's, I think my postie is gonna be kinda looooong and I don't want anybuddy to fall asleep before they gets to the pressie pawt.

The wood chopping thing must be a lot easier than the humans doing it themselves. Guess you will be nice and warm this winter.

Benny and Lily said...

Frankie that antler center piece is the nuttiest thing we have ever seen. We like your snowman flag and wood burning stove. You sure did chop a lot of woods.

Sagira said...

Wow...looks like you are well prepared for winter.

That centerpiece is kind of funny. Just don't eat those buckeyes they are not good for us pups.

We know where Eastland mall is. If you're ever in the area let us know. :)

scotsmad said...

We're glad you're going to be warm this winter, Frankie. Is your Mum trying to attract the snow with that flag?

The pie looks good, but we agree it would've been GREAT with a few Milkbones thrown in.

PeeS. We've discovered--by accident--that after we've downloaded our pictures, (We're using that newer blogger version) that if you click on each photo and then click on them in the order you want them, they come up in that order. Just a hint in case you want the pictures in a certain order.

I'm drooling along with Maggie Mae!


Zona said...

Ummm... that can of FRANKS is a little disturbing. I hope it's just a play on words!!

You are so lucky that your two-leggers work so hard in your garden and chopping your wood!


PeeS: I couldn't see the picture on Sarge's bloggie either!

houndstooth said...

Oh, pie sounds lovely right about now!

Mom says when she was little, her grandparents had a woodburning stove and they let her roast marshmallows and Cheese Nips in it!


road-dog-tales said...

Very creative centerpiece! But we (and Mom) is drooling over that pie! Why don't y'all move down to SC and open a PIE shop!

PeeS - Is the Thanksgiving Day post a blog hop? Or are we just posting like the name game sort of? We're not the sharpest tools in the shed and getting duller by the minute ;)

Interesting center peice.

My dad used to have a woodcutter. He'd go up in the woods and get a bring back a bunch. Then he'd chop it up and I'd have to help stack it. I always HATED it because there'd invariably be bugs in it after it sat for a day or two. My dad sold his woodcutter and has a pellet stove now.

That pie looks yummy!

I told my boys to be thinking about what they'd buy me if they could. Shiver knows but Chico hasn't decided yet.
