Yay! Football season, or should I say preseason has started! I knew they would settle their differences before it was time to start. There was just too much money involved with too many people to let a season slide by without playing.
Son, Mr. D, Cousin K, Jo-Lynn’s hubby and son all went down for the game. It was exciting as the Pat’s won quite easily. The highlight of the night was meeting the players! D, Cousin K and Cousin D got a chance to go down on the field and high five the players and chat a bit. I got a call from Mr. D that he got to meet Tom Brady and got a hug! He was pretty excited about that!
D is number 70, the little one! Here they are waiting for the team to come out. Tom Brady told him that he likes his leather helmet. There will be more pictures to come, we haven’t downloaded them all yet.
Here they are waiting to go on the field.
Some of you asked me about the doughboys. I guess in other areas they are called funnel cakes but it’s always been doughboys here in Tundra Country.
You take a couple loaves of frozen bread dough and let it rise. It takes quite awhile so sometimes I even set it out in the sun to help it along, covered with some saran wrap. When it’s big and puffy heat your cooking oil in an electric fry pan if you have one or just on the stove in a heavy pot. The electric fry pan works better as you can set the temp at 400* and they don’t burn.
You pull pieces off the loaf of dough and flatten it out like in the picture on my last post and put it in the oil cooking both sides until they are lightly browned. Have butter, cinnamon and confectionary sugar ready for everyone to put on their own doughboy. The butter melts in with the cinnamon and sugar and it is just delicious! Calories optional…………. Let me know if you try it! :o)
On the way home from the team penning last week we took the back way looking for some nice photo ops. We hit the jackpot.
Fields of corn were everywhere.
What kind of tractor is this Donna?
I had a bit of a mishap this week on my lawn mower. I was about a mile from the house mowing the carriage roads when my mower slipped down a little slope pinning me to a tree. I didn’t have my cell phone (first mistake) and I only had on sandals (second mistake) and I couldn’t get the mower dislodged from the tree.
Finally I got myself out, without a scratch, (thank you Lord!) and walked home to get some help. Dad was there and two carpenters who offered to come help us get it unstuck.
If you notice the limb that is half way through where I sit you can see my dilemma. It was touching my ribs but didn’t make even a scratch! If it had slid further I most likely would have had some broken ribs or worse.
Dad had to cut the limb with a chain saw as there was no way to move the mower.
Next we had to pull the mover out but couldn’t find out where to plug the wench in. We WILL find out where the plug in is for future reference!!!
We finally got it out and I went on my merry way, very thankful for not being injured other then my pride! I will wear boots and have my phone with me from now on. If I hadn’t been able to get out around that limb that was sticking into me I would have been in big trouble. Guess this was a wake up call!
Well we are off to the lake later for the pig roast. First Funsize, her boyfriend Paul and I are going for a trail ride while it’s cool. Scooter is doing really well and enjoying his laid back lifestyle!
Scooter and me, Kipper and Miss T and Funsize and Lil’ Bud.
