To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

Did You Ever Throw a Hissy Fit?
"How's it looking, Luke?"
"It's wookin a wittle wike ders no floor, daddy."
I had reported on a previous post about adding a new deck to the Atlanta house. I believe this project began last year and yes, indeed, our darling Jay has worked feverishly on completing this ambitious undertaking. The Divine Miss M captured this father-son moment during a painting session near the end of the project. However, just how many "hissy fits" were thrown during the process? Inclement weather, a fall from a ladder, staining, painting, unsatisfactory wood, etc...the list goes on and on...countless trips to Home Depot...but, stay tuned....it's a beauty!!
Now, ya'll ready for that Hissy Fit Dip?
HISSY FIT DIP
16 ounces sour cream
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
8 ounces Velveeta, small cubed
1 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded
1 pound pork sausage, crumbled, cooked and drained
1/4 cup green onion, finely chopped
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. onion powder
1/2 t. ground sage
1/2 t. smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients; stirring until well blended. Place in your crock pot that you have sprayed with non-stick coating.
