July 4th - Dogs and Scrambled Egg Ice Cream

"So a duck walks into a drugstore and says, 'Gimme some chapstick, and put it on my bill.'"

No, this isn't Jake. This is our neighbor dog, Daisy, with her cousin, Blue the Great Dane, who is the tallest dog I have ever seen. I HAD a Great Dane, and this dog is taller than I remember Maverick being.

Jake was on the stairs watching these two have a ball, barking his head off...

Blue is huge and intimidated Jake terribly. They actually tried to play once, and when they crashed into each other, Jake instantly picked up his rear leg and started whimpering and limping. (It was all an act - they crashed into each other's shoulders!)

And this is my beautiful Nostalgia ice cream maker, which made perfect ice cream in 30 minutes, while the boys waited and listened for the motor to stop...

If only I hadn't poured the beaten eggs straight into the hot milk...leading to scrambled egg ice cream. Of course, you cooks know you do that thing of putting a little hot milk in the eggs, then vice versa, etc. But I'm not a cook...

My children still ate a bowl and declared it delicious before being turned off by the bits of solid egg every now and then...I have a new recipe that doesn't involve eggs.

Now back to the Tankini!

I told your duck joke to my family and they laughed! Too late for me to pass it off as my own ;) I think your icecream invention is the leading edge in nutri-food icecream production. Icecream manufacturers everywhere will now be flogging your idea and passing it off as a new 'protein' version.

Ooh - I sure didn't think of it like that!
