I hope that everyone had a nice, calm, eat your black-eyed peas New Years Day.
Black-eyed peas are supposed to bring you good luck throughout the year, right? We can check out how accurate that "old wives tale" was yesterday.
I ate a lot of black-eyes, not just for luck, but because I do like them with cornbread and ham.
My neighbor found 2 dogs running loose and he had to leave so we agreed to take the dogs in, do the neighborly thing, post signs and to the message board that we had these 2 dogs. We played with and fed the dogs and 2 hours later, no one claimed the dogs. 4 hours later still no dog owners. Finally, the phone rang and they were rounding up their 3rd missing dog and would come get these 2. The white dog was on the sofa with the puppy, Tiki and me. For some reason she decided to go after Tiki and the puppy. When I grabbed Tiki out of the dog fight, yep, the white dog (Pearl) bit 2 of my fingers. One was a puncture wound and let me tell you dog bites hurt!! The owners showed up, the dog has her shots, thankfully.
I am so glad I ate all those extra peas....it could have been so much worse!
