A sweet May Day surprise from dear friends May 1, 2012

TODAY IS MAY DAY, dear readers. Did you remember?

I had forgotten, until I opened the front screen door this afternoon and spotted a bag on my front steps. This bag:

The sweet May Day surprise friends dropped onto my front steps sometime today.

I knew, even before reading the tag, that this May Day bag (basket) came from my friends Tammy and Jesse and their children, Noah, Hannah, Jack and Amelia.

They are thoughtful like that—so giving and caring and simply the kind of family that you love because they are good and kind and wonderful and genuine.

I read the note wishing my family a blessed spring, untied the blue ribbon and found, inside, a plastic bag brimming with puppy chow. It is not dog food. I do not have a dog. Rather, this version is for humans and is made from crispy rice cereal squares, chocolate chips, peanut butter and powdered sugar. Yummy and addicting and my friends know just how much I enjoy this treat. I will stash away the puppy chow now or it will be gone before the husband and son taste even a morsel.

Love, love, love puppy chow...

Readers, there’s still time today to surprise someone you care about with an unexpected May Day basket/bag on their front steps.

    Oh, what a fun unexpected surprise! That made your morning, I’m sure. Yes, you must hide the puppy chow. Its addictive as heck. If you don’t hide it, chances are you won’t get any. I know that is how it works here at the Wahl ranch. *lol*

      I finished off the puppy chow yesterday morning. I don’t think the husband and the son ate much of it. But they knew it was there…
