Two packages into the mail.
One to Jimmi in Ludington, returning a beach towel that ended up in the Cavalier. There may also be a belated birthday present or two.
One to R in Baton Rouge. Mostly some fleece jackets and such. She plans to attend a Turkey Shoot next weekend and wants to be able to dress for the weather. Looks like a fun time and I wish I could go.
Mrs ERJ commented that the dogs coming into the house with too much dust in their coats. Kubota and I rototilled the dog-run, raked it out and spread shredded hardwood mulch. It looks nice but the mulch is not nearly thick enough. It looks like I need another two yards. I learned that shredded pallets (oak) are free so I will investigate that source of mulch. We also put fresh wood shavings in the big dog house after raking out the remnants of last year's straw. I think Mrs ERJ will be pleased.
Then I went and gave blood. I am currently replacing with another red fluid. No, it is not Dexron III.
Four chicken quarters are in the oven at 325, coated with a mix of corn meal, salt, brown sugar, black pepper and garlic. Mrs ERJ and Belladonna are expected home in 45 minutes. I will "let" them pick the vegetable.
