Not too much to say. The flu caught up with us on
Master of Arms
So we decided to celebrate the big day on Sunday. We had left over pumpkin from last weekends pumpkin waffles. So we made pumpkin pancakes with the leftovers. Here is the evidence. It was a success.

Pumpkin Spice So Nice
We took down a bird feeder we
didn’t use and set up a squirrel feeder.
We have a bungee jumping squirrel feeder that we have some old video
from. Jim Moore gave us the feeder one
Christmas a select few years ago. We

We fed the birds and squirrels. Mark wanted seafood for his birthday. We bought some shrimp and scallops for Mark’s celebratory feast. We also got a skewer of chicken and another of beef for Wink. We had fresh green beans for the vegetable. We also had a baguette with Camembert cheese for the starch. We cooked some bacon and sautéed the scallops in bacon grease and butter. Then we created a sauce by adding wine and lemon juice to the drippings and reducing it by half. The result was most satisfactory.
Belated Birthday Feast
We finished the meal with port and chocolate. It was a splendid if belated birthday.
