NEW VIDEO: SNOWY OWL AT CAPTAIN JOES!

Snowy Owl Gloucester Massachusetts ©Kim Smith 2015So many thanks to Joey and Tom Ring for the wonderful tip. The Snowy is gorgeous!!! My right arm is a little unsteady with robo-cast but still managed to get a few moments. Notice how the Snowy Owl rotates its head, giving him nearly a 360 degree viewing vantage. The crows and a hawk* were noisily dive-bombing the Snowy, but he held his ground. I hope we see him again soon.

*Chris Anderson reports that the perching and diving bird is a Peregrine Falcon.

The set-up

20151230_093135-01.jpeg

Country style boneless pork ribs hit the kettle.  I used hickory chunks and cherry chips, charcoal set up- snake method and tossed the water pan from the Western Mountain Smoker to keep the ribs from getting dried out.

Once they hit 150 internal I pulled them off, cut them up into cubes and reapplied the rub.  Melted a stick of butter and mixed it with Texas Pete hot sauce and coated them before I reapplied the rub.

Pet of the Week-Puff

 

puff1.jpg

People who meet me can’t help but wonder, “what is such an adorable young lady still doing single?” Well I’ve been thinking the same exact thing! I was brought in by a local rescue group who thought I was too sweet to be living the rest of my days on the streets.  So here I am, waiting to find a family to take me home! I like enjoying all aspects of life.  I am good at playing, eating, relaxing, getting and giving attention and affection.  All of the important things! Do I sound like a good match for you and your family?

  • If You Couldn’t Go Another Second Without a Coffee, Which Line Would You Get Into?

    I was traveling from Boston to Las Vegas the other day and passed on a coffee at 6:30 a.m. when leaving “the island” because I wanted to savor a large hot coffee while sitting at the airport.

    This is what I found waiting for me when we finally checked in, checked our bags, cleared security, and found our gate.

    Such a bummer.

    Which line would you get in if you were about to depart for a cross-county flight and hadn’t had a coffee yet?
