Treat baking day

Endo LOVES treat baking day because he gets to lick the tuna cans clean; the mixing bowl, and my hands too.

Single batch:

  • 4 cans tuna
  • 4 eggs
  • About a cup of flour
  • Mix
  • Spread on parchment paper on cookie sheet – about 1/4 inch thick

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.

Cut into bite size bits with a pizza cutter.

For crunchy version that doesn’t require refrigeration, bake an additional 20 minutes – after cutting – with the oven door opened a bit.

Dakine tailgate pad

Today, I got my newest bike related toy. It’s a Dakine tailgate pad that will protect the tailgate while securely holding up to seven bikes. I like it, but I wish it was attached in a more secure manner. It’s only held in place by 3 nylon straps.

I also bought a coated steel cable to secure the bikes to the truck. I’ll have to see if I can use that to hold the pad in place against theft.

Endo Turned One!

I guess it’s been a while since I’ve updated. I had intended to update regularly, but the WordPress Android app doesn’t work as well as I had hoped.  Plus, there’s not been a lot going on.  The weather has been very spring-like (wet and cold) and has not allowed for any good bike rides on the trails or on the road. Since the last update, I’ve still had a lot of fun, though.
First, my little boy celebrated his first birthday with a brand new “Birthday Ball”! He loves it. He might love it a bit too much.


And, while I haven’t posted a video of it, he does manage to get hold of it from time to time. Boy, does he ever LOVE tugging on it when he does manage to bite it. It’s supposed to be a toy for horses, but don’t tell a Cattle Dog what to do. They just ignore you anyway

The Ordeal (Parts I & II)

A story from April 6th 2016
Last Wings home game of the year


Wednesday night, I got to sit in a greyhound bus station for an hour at midnight.
Here’s the story…
Chris and I went to a Red Wings game Wednesday night. We parked down along the Detroit River Walk park, where we have been parking for the past few years of going to games at The Joe. It’s the best place to park for free, if you can get to the game early enough. We always do. The routine for my best friend/son is that we leave right after work – regardless of the start-time of the game. Once inside the Joe Lewis Arena (JLA) we go to one of the Little Cesar’s pizza counters and order a large pepperoni (because sausage does bad things to my digestive tract and the only other option is 3-meat) and two large Cokes, light on the ice – because, if I’m going to pay $5 for a 20oz Coke, that bitch better be 99% coke -, and then we go sit in our seats and watch the pre-skate while munching on some pizza.


While we sit there, we scan the audience for interesting things. That can be anything from cute girls to unique jerseys, or friends we didn’t expect to see. We make fun of the fans of the opposing team as they wait for their team to take the ice and we judge most of them. On this momentous occasion, as I shoveled pizza into my face, I scanned the audience. Chris gave me a curious look because I was apparently very intense in my scan. I turned to him and said, “I was scanning for that $20.”
