Yikes! There's a face on my pancake!

I always make my spouse pancakes on Sunday mornings.

Imagine my shock when I looked down in the frying pan to see this bearded guy staring back at me.

Or have I finally lost all my marbles?
Can you see him? Can you? Please say yes!

I didn't do anything do make it come out shaped like that, either.

Bizarre, huh?

I'm going back to the bead board to calm down. That'll relax me....she said, hopefully.

Ah, to be in England

Someday -
I'd love to see a little cottage like this in real life.

It's always been a dream of mine to go to England. Not just a whim or a fancy, mind you, but a deep-seated, heartfelt, earnest desire. I've always felt an intense kinship with all things British and/or Irish. I know, it's almost blasphemy to mention those two in the same sentence, isn't it? My Irish ancestors are probably rolling in their graves. Well, groaning, at least.

I'd love to see London, the Cotswolds, Yorkshire, the Isle of Wight, Dover.......need I go on?

This evening I watched Agatha Christie's "The Mirror Crack'd," a Miss Marple mystery and in the final scene, Miss Marple is presiding over tea in her wonderful English country garden. The camera pans back and behold! A perfectly splendid thatched cottage. *SIGH*

Oh, to be in England....someday, someday!
