DOG DAYS, OR CHRISTMAS IN JULY

So the wee writing retreat was awesome. Pat Weaver, Hostest with the Mostest can cook some a-maze-ing chicken fingers. And don't get me started on her biscuits and chocolate gravy.

Yes, you heard that right: CHOCOLATE GRAVY. I wanted to ask her for the recipe, but I think maybe I better not. You know -- opportunity being the root of crime and all. YUM.

Aside from the writing, here we are (along with Pat's adorable grandkids) having fun at THE WALL:






And if that wasn't enough, I came home with a Writing Puppy, complete with very cute verse written by Pat herself. Sweet, huh?



Then there's THIS guy. Throwaway dog that Pat rescued and named Patch. Throwaway dog that now has a new name (MARIO) and a new home and a new boy (ERIC) who is absolutely in love with him.



Yep, go to Pat's house, and you just never know what you're going to come home with.
Thanks, Ladies!!! It was fun!

  1. Okay, I'm sorry, but you might have to find out the recipe for chocolate gravy for those of us out here who are shorting out our keyboards with drool.
