If you look closely, you will see that the daffodils and crocus are starting to grow.

The Cheesecake Factory recently opened at the Danbury Fair Mall. With our nieces visiting for a few days, I thought a day of shopping and lunch would be fun. After 3 hours of prom dress shopping, we were tired and wanted a break.
We headed to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch. While we waited to be seated, I ogled their display case full of sinful cakes. We ordered lunch and I was surprised at the large size portions which were placed in front of us.
When it came time for dessert, we each ordered a different type of cake, lemon raspberry cheesecake, white chocolate blueberry cheesecake, chocolate raspberry cheesecake and chocolate fudge cake topped with fresh whipped cream. The slices of cake were so large, that none of us could finish them.
As we left the restaurant, I commented that after all those calories, it was a good thing we had spent so much time walking the mall. After another 2 hours of shopping, I no longer felt any guilt over eating such a decadent meal.

I asked if Agway sold duck food and was surprised to hear that yes, they sold duck/turkey food in 50 lb bags. We don't have many turkeys, so I wasn't sure this was the best idea.
We got to Agway and picked up a 25 lb bag of Feathered Friend cracked corn. The girl at the counter said, you know that you can buy 50lbs of generic corn for $4 LESS. Double the amount for less money, I said ok, we'll take the larger quantity.
I did not realize how big a 50 lb bag of corn was, until it was carried out and placed in the trunk.
All I can say is I hope the ducks decide to spend ALL summer with us. If not, the deer and squirrels will get a treat.

Jeff says, what can you expect from a 50% off Walmart sale? Still, I am disappointed.

As I started towards the pond, the female ran towards me, quacking loudly. When I was within arms reach, she raced back to the edge of the water. As I threw the corn to the ducks, I wondered, could this be Maddy and Paddy ?
I then realized that we have not seen Maddy and Paddy since Danny died, which is almost 4 years ago. I doubt that a wild duck could survive that long. In any case, I smiled at the memory of our super-friendly ducks and our special Golden boy.

Brook (short for Brooklyn) lost her home, when the house she lived in caught fire. The local shelter has a 2 day grace period. Any dog not adopted in 48 hours is euthanized.
A small breed rescue stepped in to help this sweet girl, but could not keep such a big dog for long. Our LI family heard of Brook's plight and decided to adopt her.
