Seahawks Key Lime Pie

I made Tom a Key Lime Pie this morning using Kermit’s key lime juice.  I added some food coloring to make it Seahawks green.  Here it is:

I am hoping that it will help our second half.  Not working so far…..

Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band

Tom and I went to Tacoma yesterday to see Bob Seer.  Tom is a big fan.  I have not been but definitely grew up with his music, especially as a teenager listening to KISW and KZOK.  Here a snippets of some of his songs:

Mainstreet:

Shame on the Moon:

Roll Me Away:

Her Strut:

We’ve Got Tonite:

Travelin’ Man:

Sunspot Baby:

Bob Seger:

Turn the Page:

Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man:

The Silver Bullet Band (with many long-term members):

The rest are encore performances.

Against the Wind:

Hollywood Nights:

Night Moves:

Rock and Roll Never Forgets:

Bob Seger:

He wrote almost all of the songs he performed.  He still has the same voice he always had.  I think he is moving less on stage and playing less guitar, but it was an amazing performance.  I do have a new appreciation of him and his music.  I am happy to have seen him on his last tour.  And Tom was thrilled.

Hay Loft Chicks and Squash

While I was away in Idaho, Tom looked after the hay loft chicks.  They did well, but the day after I came back, I went to work and one of the chicks decided to fall out of the loft.  Then the hen and another chick came out.  So Tom had to run around and catch the hen and the chicks, some ran around the barnyard and some still in the loft.  He managed to catch all but one and moved them to the pen with the other hen and her two chicks.  Here they are yesterday after the kerfuffle was over.

Unfortunately he found the one who had escaped dead yesterday behind the barn.

The other hen is chasing this hen and her chicks and not sharing food and water.  I added an extra feeder and waterer in hopes it will help.

After the animal chores, I explored the garden and the squash jungle.  I found a pumpkin for the hogs and this beautiful acorn squash.  Isn’t it pretty?

I made my dinner last night with it.  I added our cubed pork sauteed with a shallot, one of our apple and some Sunnyland pecans.  Then baked it.  It was a lovely autumn meal.
