This is Mom's extra homemade shop lamp. Look, it DOES say "electric perk".
Dad has been on the road traveling for work most of the last month and he has to leave again soon, but he had a couple of days off from being an engineer to be at home with Mom. She did her best to spoil him - cooking him some nice foodables since if you hear him tell it, on the road he lives on nothing but Ramen Noodles and Gruel. So Mom took some annual leave from work to spend a little time with him before he left again.

After cleaning up the breakfast dishes, the morning was time for the yard work. The Purple Coneflower is not only a pretty plant, but they are dried and kept as medical items in our emergency/natural disaster supplies.
Hey were's MY goodies to eat?

Yay it's my Blue Buffalo Basic food which I love - as it makes my coat all glossy and my stomach so happy.
