    Oh yum, chocolate eclairs! That chocolate lasagna looks downright dangerous!
    Kandy, that pic you posted of DeeDee is adorable!

    Waves, oh how I love eclairs! The first thing I learned to make in Home Ec (Home Economics) class was cream puffs and eclairs 🙂 Yes that is definitely aging myself.

    The American Kennel Club is announcing Wednesday that it is recognizing the pumi, the 190th breed to join the roster of the nation’s oldest purebred dog registry. That means the pumi can vie for best of breed at Westminster for the first time next February.
    Two other new breeds, the American hairless terrier and an ancient North African hound called the sloughi, were recognized this past January and will also be eligible for Westminster for the first time next year.

    Mmm, eclairs….good stuff. I like how the “cream puff” kitty combines yesterday’s yoga theme with today’s theme. :).

    I made that chocolate lasagna once….sort of fun but don’t think I’d make it again.

    Thanks for letting me debrief here yesterday about old friend. I was surprised how much it upset me. I usually not an overly sensitive person or anything. She was sort of a mom figure/friend, older than me and we were quite close. She even asked my parents if I could live with her when I needed a place to live in high school. I chose to live with aunt and uncle (lucky me having multiple offers) and gradually lost touch with old friend…but she meant a lot to me. I always knew her as an adult and accepted her as such….not a bit surprised by her political posts since I knew who she supported for president in the 1980’s. But I feel like she took a look at who I was as an adult and said, “no thanks.” But I’m feeling better today. I think I just needed a day to be sad about it. Funny, as you said, KZ, most people are quite free to express political and religious views on Facebook. I prefer to keep those things to myself and keep things light on Facebook. My posts are mostly college football, cats or cooking. Maybe she’s a dog person….lol.

    Good morning everyone! Kandy, that’s a great idea–you can start your own topic and then keep adding pics and we’ll drool all over them!
    ECB, I think you are right to day a couple of minutes to ‘grieve’. I don’t do well with hurt feelings, my first reaction is anger. Then of course I have to feel sorry for myself. I always get over it, whatever it may be since I seem to process things quickly—but I never forget it. A good friend to me is someone I can be myself with, we cannot always agree but should always feel comfortable in our relationship that we can express opposing viewpoints. I have many times changed my mind about things, listening to someone else. I don’t divulge much on FB, I have one pic which is my profile pic. Any others on there are pics that people have posted to my timeline. Some people are an open book which is scary to me. 😳
    Oh, and I’ll have a couple of chocolate eclairs (if they’re small) and a second cup of coffee! I think I’ll head to the cafe where the kits can wait on me…..

    ECB, sad when things change in a friendship especially if it is because of politics and such. I try not to say some things about politics, one because of where I work and two just don’t feel the need to get in hurt feelings over politics. Plus most people or at least a lot I have met don’t understand that I honestly think people change (and not for the most part in a good way) when they run for office, ugh. Maybe you are right she could be a non-sports loving person (was going to say dogs, but I like most critters except bugs, snakes, etc.)

    Cool news about the new dog breeds! Now that you mention it Deb, I think I made eclairs in Home Ec too. I once worked in a 2 person office and the boss often came in with breakfast and newspapers. Sometimes breakfast sandwiches – Taylor ham, egg & cheese – or something from the bakery – chocolate eclairs. I’m glad you are feeling better today, ECB. That was a strange turn of events for you. I’ll be your fb friend! 🙂
    Looking forward to more pics and DeeDee stories, Kandy!
    So far my walk has been unsuccessful. Didn’t get far when Mama Cat spotted me, then a bit further Berta caught up with me. So I turned them around and went home, where the other 4 were waiting. Will try again in a while, when they are settled down for their post-breakfast naps.
    Sad to report the cats got a Robin. 🙁 I have been worried about them, as they like to hop around on the lawn. Many years ago Shaddo got a Robin, and had a miserable summer because the mate screamed and dive bombed him whenever he was outside.

    In Home Ec (eccch!) I recall having to make something called “Eggs a la Goldenrod”, prob from “June Cleaver’s” cookbook LOL. Think class time ran short and we had to eat the mess only partially cooked through. 🙄
    ECB, if I were on Facebook, I’d also be your fb friend. I’ve just heard of peeps getting a lot of nastiness in an unmoderated site and having to “unfriend” whole loads of peeps. So I’ll stick with being your TDK friend.

    KZ, in the Café you can have eclairs in any size or form of your choosing. That’s the TDK magic!
    Again re Facebook. Someone told me of a mutual acquaintance, a couple who let’s just say their marriage went srsly wrong. Each posted their side of the story, complete with pics detailing infractions. For thousands of people the world over to see. Very inappropriate and ugly. Purrsonally, I do have very strong opinions, but I like to think a “live and let live” attitude and don’t want to get into I’Net strife. And with my outdated browser I probably can’t connect to fb anyway, so in essence it’s a moot point.
    Rainy today and not as hot, but humid, Earlier we had srs thunderstorms, which seem to have abated, but I still plan to take my srs umbrella (the golf style one that prob fits a family of 4 hehehe) when I leave for gym.

    Fb is good for overall connectivity, but TDK is hands down the best forum on the net. Some of us here cross post, but I share more day to day stuff here. There’s a lot of judging and criticism on fb. Plenty of good stuff too, of course, but my happy place is here.

    Got my thread up in Cats and Kittens with 6 pix.

    I would love an eclair. But in no mood to leave the house. Lol

    You don’t have to leave the house Kandy. A kitty will even bring your eclair order thru the wormhole (which is how the Café kits) get to and from the Café, and don’t bother trying to find the wormhole, only the kits know where it is. It’s virtual, but it’s also fun! Enjoy!

    It’s all virtual, Kandy. Picture us all sitting around together chatting, lounging, and in today’s case, eating chocolate eclairs!
