Why I Burned My Breakfast

Yes, those are the eggs that were left on the stove way too long, and thus became inedible.  As was the bagel, which was left too long in the toaster.

Why? you ask.

It wasn’t because Puppy Cody was misbehaving.  She wasn’t.  Before breakfast, she went out as usual and calmly surveyed her territory:

Orange Dog, Orange Porch: one way to camouflage the security guard

The eggs got burned because when I looked out the front window, I saw this critter staring in at me:

Here’s Looking at You!

I got so excited that I just had to grab all three of my cameras and spent an extreme amount of time trying to figure out which one would get the best shot – and forgot the eggs were on the stove, cooking  When photographing, the rest of the world disappears for me.

I’m lucky I didn’t burn the house down.  Cody let me know the eggs were done just the way she likes them.  Good dog.

BTW, the eye doctor says my eyes are just fine.  Must be – that mosquito eater insect was tiny.

Here’s to the weekend, folks.  May it be perfect for all of us.

    Is Cody really so innocent? Maybe Cody and that critter were in on it. The critter created a distraction, your breakfast burned, and Cody got fried eggs for breakfast.

    I just read that bagels are one of top 5 things you shouldn’t have if you’re trying to watch your weight. I watch mine go up constantly so figure I’m okay…


  3. I’ve had baked good on fire after forgetting them for long enough. Did you know that apple pie can really BLAZE away?
