The Gray Part 2

This photo is an example of all the gray horses Mr. Cowboy chose.
 
Hi everyone!! I have really enjoyed reading your comments. Yesterday I was laughing at the comments Carol and the Left-handed quilter wrote and then I saw what Needled Mom wrote when Mr. Cowboy walked in for lunch. Of course he wanted to know what was so funny so I showed him all the comments.  He "really" loved all your wonderful thoughts....hehehehehehehehe......and said that the next time we go to the races he was going to bet on all reddish brownish blackish horses.  I hooted with laughter with that one.
The next time we go back to the races will be next July so I'm sure he won't remember what was said by then.......I hope.
Here's a weird thought. I made tuna fish salad for lunch yesterday. Mr. Cowboy looked up from his sandwich and chips to ask why we always refer to it as tuna fish? We already know that tuna is a fish. I responded that it was too hot to contemplate why we call it tuna fish. Any thoughts on that out there is blogger-land??
And now for the weather.....today it was 101 degrees by 11:00am. I didn't think I'd ever cool off from just walking to the mailbox. Even the squirrels were napping in the trees. Whew! What's it like where you live?

It's been hot here too, but today the humidity broke so it seems a lot cooler. Might be nicer for sleeping tonight. Oddly, in our household tuna is tuna....no fish added.

We've had a cool summer here. It has been mostly low 80s.

No idea on why it is called tuna fish.

There is also a tuna "fruit" which grows on a cactus. The same cactus that produces "nopales" has little red/purple fruits that grow on the edges of the leaves.

So "tuna fish" differentiates it from the fruit. Which is probably why in some parts of the country we just say "tuna," but in places closer to cactus country it is "tuna fish." Of course, words/phrases do move along with people who migrate.

Yes, it's hot here in the Tulsa area. I wilt in the heat. I much prefer the cooler weather and we had very little of that this year. My friends who have achy bones and joints don't understand that will all my aches and pains that I dislike summer as much as I do - just because they like summer doesn't mean that I do. I am under a quilt with the A/C on in the summer. I have fibromyalgia and ache all the time. It's call tuna fish at my house and I rarely have it. My children never learned to like it, so I haven't eaten much of it since I've been divorced for 20 years from their dad - just too much for one person. It sure sounds good though. I need to make some and have the girls over - thanks for a great idea.

Well, the horse in the picture IS pretty. I had to think about Tuna being called Tuna Fish and I realized that we don't say Tuna Fish. I will ask Terry if he would like a "Tuna Salad Sandwich", or as if he wants "Tuna Noodle" which is short for Tuna Noodle Casserole. Perhaps calling Tuna "Tuna Fish" is a regional thing. What ever you call it, I like Tuna.

I hadn't really thought about it, but we say tuna fish at our house. And so do others living in our area. Maybe it is a regional thing.
As for the weather, it has been very hot. Mostly in the 90's. But it rains a LOT so that cools it down for a while.

It's probably a regional thing. We call it "tuna". "Tuna salad" for sandwiches - and "Tuna Noodle Casserole" for the ummm - Tuna Noodle Casserole - LOL. I remember when my grandkids were little - they LOVED chicken - and not much else. They were VERY picky eaters. So if we wanted them to eat something like "fish sticks" - we told them it was chicken - and they ate it - never dreaming that Grandma and Mom would lie to them to get them to eat their dinner - ;))

It was 104 today, I tried not to venture out. We have our grandson and he loves the out of doors but it will have to be early hours only. Great thought about the tuna fish.

Don't count the days, make the days count!
