the Arvada Chorale delighted again with their special guests the internationally famed Irish music group Colcannon.
what is Colcannon? This was not your potato and cabbage dish but as the name indicates this talented group has a great sense of humor.
Had a great time and got back into my sketching a bit.
I tasted a bit of these Pawbenders treats from Good Times to make sure no sugar. Just plain frozen custard (no sugar), dog biscuits (I didn’t taste these 😏) and some kind of peanut butter “caramel” sauce (no sugar). Found them appropriate treat!
Henry here with an update on learning how to control humans (in a good and gentle way because they are pretty fragile).
Being a puppy is complicated. Mom shares a lot because we are “rescued doggies”.
She received this “gift card” from our human brother for something called Mother’s Day. Our human brother told us about Mother’s Day, and on that day we decided it wasn’t about her, it was about us (Roscoe, Monty and me-Henry) because she is our her mother, right?
Mom loves bacon guacamole cheeseburgers from this place. But…….this place also carries a frozen treat for doggies called Pawbenders!
Frozen plain custard (no sugar), dog biscuits and some kind of peanut butter “caramel” sauce (no sugar).
Mom used her Mother’s Day gift card and shared with us, buying these yummy treats. Today was hot enough that we got to enjoy them. We are big so we ate them fast, in about 10 minutes, but enjoyed every minute as only a doggy can!
Thanks to our human brother, and Mom sharing, we had a Make My Day experience!
Guess what I did today?
Joined some interesting people to sit and knit in public in Olde Town Arvada square. Sitting in the shade of huge trees and the light breeze made it very pleasant.
Made some great new friends who pick a different charity to knit for every few months.
and this guy?
getting ready for Beatles Night. Several bands will be playing Beatles music in the square. Free family fun. He was painting the circles for a game called Twister from that era. Green, orange and blue dots to follow. This guy was thin and wirey, he’s going to be great at the game!
I am still receiving postcards anonymously in the mail.
Someone ate the last one before I vould put it on my blog
And it was delicious!
Hi! Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a guest blog post.
Mom uses something called “disposable income” to purchase us extreme dog treats.
Fish skin rolls! Really stinky but really yummy 😋 🐟
Some kind of long lasting mega turkey rolls. 🍗
Honey and cherry basted chicken feet!🐓
She has to put them up high, on top of the cabinet, so we can’t reach them on our own.
Or in the freezer. We get these frozen Paw Benders in the summer.
Mom often has her own treat, a cold beer 🍺or a glass of red wine 🍷while we enjoy Extreme Dog Treats!
Thank you to Zeb who is an unlikely friend of Roscoe, Monty and Henry over at Colorado Traveling Ducks blog.
Unlikely because Zeb is a duck!
Zeb told me about a cool book sale by the Jefferson County Library this weekend. On the last day of the sale, today, it was six dollars for a big bag of books.
Some of the money they earn is used for children’s literacy. I believe children need books for their imaginations and confidence to grow.
Here are some books I picked up today and will donate to a local community free shop. Yay books for children!
I also love to rescue cook books and donate them to the neighborhood little free library. I love to read the recipes before I donate the books. I never seem to cook anything out of the books but this one has recipes for pets and humans:
For sure I’m gonna make the deviled eggs that is suitable for dogs and their humans.
This International recipe book has a recipe for sesame crusted salmon with orange miso sauce. Yikes! And a Mojito where I can use those mint leaves growing in my yard. Or the soy ginger beef and noodle salad with peanut dressing? How does that sound for a yummy refreshing summer dinner? And a simple dessert, balsamic strawberries with whipped Mascarpone cheese. Ha I don’t know what Mascarpone cheese is, I guess I’m saved from that recipe!
OK I guess I’m gonna have to brain storm with my friend Jane, who doesn’t even wilt at the thought of cooking for over 100 people. Once she sees the salmon recipe I’ll have her hooked. She will instantly radically change the recipes, making them her own with only a hint of the original recipe ( and better than the original recipe ). Plus she will include handy tips. And I’ll be able to share Jane’s recipes without breaking any copy right rules!
Hey Zeb the duck, thank you again!
