On the Bayou

Some pretty birds from my morning walk

A White Heron, a daily treat

A Pink Spoonbill, a special treat

I couldn't get close enough for a good picture but
here is one from the Texas Dept of Wildlife.

Happy Birthday: Fritos!

Frito's is celebrating a 75th anniversary by featuring this
retro looking package. I'm thinking 75 years ago
you did not pay $2.49 a bag

Hey, anybody remember the Frito Kid???
How about the Frito Bandito?

Kitty Movie Monday

Angel continues to stay just out of my reach

The Apprentice LA:

This week our teams are working to promote a sweepstakes for Priceline.com.
Project managers Surya and Aimee both must overcome dissension on their respective teams.
Neither succeed in this most difficult part of the task, but Surya and Team Arrow wins.

In the boardroom all fingers point to Aimee.
Clearly Trump agrees that leadership was lacking and sent Aimee to the limo as Kinetic sadly sulks off to live in Trump Tent City once again.

You know...
You would think this far into the process the tasks would become more challenging.
I mean...How hard is it to set up a kiosk at the mall and sign people up for a drawing?
And while I'm bitching, how about more task and less romance...yuck.

Priceline.com is giving away a chance to attend the live finale.

The Apprentice LA: Arrow Feels the Sting

This week our teams are sent out to harvest bees, bottle the honey and sell the goods at a local grocery store. It was rather disturbing seeing them all decked out in the bee keeper suits and I was hoping no one is allergic to bee stings.

Back at the office both teams are taking a painful amount of time choosing a bottle and a label for the product. This being a point of sale type challenge and not a marketing one, they really could have used about anything for the label and expended more effort making colorful banners and signs for the display tables.
The ones they used looked pretty bad.

After bottling and labeling has been completed, the real competition begins.

Arrow seems to be doing well even though Aaron is floundering in the sales area.
Kinetic feels they are falling behind and Derek puts his bee keeper garb back on. The gold medalist is featured at one table and these tactics help them pull ahead to win the task.
Yup! It's back to Tent City for Arrow!

In the board room, the team tries to throw Surya under the bus for being annoying.
No doubt he IS annoying, but clearly he did not lose this task.
Aimee is much tougher as a judge than she was as project manager.
She better be careful making enemies in case the players get moved around in future tasks.

Aaron makes a classic mistake by inviting Nicole into the boardroom and in the same breath saying she should not be fired.
The Donald hates that.
Aaron you're fired!

No Spay Today

I got Angel in the carrier for her spay this morning, not an easy feat and when I was putting it in the car the door popped open and she got away.
All I could do was watch her run.
The Clinic does strays on Thursdays, hopefully I can get her next week.
Thank goodness it happened at home but crap....I am just so darn annoyed

Update: The clinic will work in tomorrow if I can catch her again.
She was running pretty fast...sigh.

Update 2: She's back and content to glare at me from across the yard

The Friday Ark is up and running and don't miss Sunday's Carnival of Cats hosted this week at When Cats Attack

The Apprentice LA: Derek's Blog

Somehow, I just don't find this very amusing although I'm sure it is meant to be.
