Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Monday Minutiae

J. got a new book today and the title just cracks me up.  This guy used to have a website called HogOnIce.com where, of all things, he made fun of Nigerian email scammers.  Really funny stuff.  But it's defunct now and lives only in the dusty annals of Google's wayback machine.  I'm looking forward to flipping through the recipes and getting a good laugh.
BTW, if you want to see someone else getting silly scammers to do funny things and take pictures of themselves doing it,check out 419eater.com.  That link goes to the pictures, but the stories are funny also.  It's amazing how easy it is to scam the scammers.  Since I deal with this crap every day at work, I do get some satisfaction out of knowing that they might be on the receiving end of a scam once in awhile.
But anyway, I digress.  Back to eating what you want....
And what do I want to eat? 
That strawberry.  It's the first of the year!


  1. I doubt the strawberry would have made it inside if I was the one picking. Patience is not my strong point.

  2. It lasted long enough for me to take that picture, DFW. Otherwise, it would have already been an ex-strawberry. :-)
