I made a chile relleno casserole last night. I halved the recipe which called for 12 eggs. It also called for 1/2 lb of chorizo. I made the mistake of looking at the nutritional info on the chorizo package. One serving has 77% of your daily intake of saturated fat. Oh yeah! It should be a great dinner!

Mesa likes watching t.v. Every morning Kitty turns on Animal Planet for him and he stares intently at the screen. Last week I was watching Leno when he had a zookeeper on. Mesa went nuts when they showed baby lions and a lemur.

I had been meaning to buy some stock in BNSF because I like railroads and they will do great once the economy recovers. I was just waiting for the price to come down a bit since it seemed to be overbought. Ooops. Too late. BNSF shot up $20/share thanks to a buyout by Warren Buffet. Oh well. There's $2000 I missed out on.

I had a very cool thing happen to me on Saturday. I moved a patio chair into the middle of the yard to soak up some sun. As I was petting Mesa a bird flew into the yard and landed about 15' away on top of the railroad tie retaining wall. I looked up to see a nice Cooper's Hawk staring back at me. We checked each other out for about a minute and then he flew away.

And a big "HAPPY BIRFDAY!" to overzen. May you always be the king of the Wild Things.
