Sun-Kissed King

Well, he's almost complete- he still needs a title!!! As you can see by the edited post title- he has a name!!!

Just a little "aside" for your next trivia game: they've done studies and the lions with the blacker/darker manes are more "attractive" to the ladies! Guess if you're a boy lion, blondes don't have more fun!!!

I can't believe how quickly the summer has been slipping away- I'm going to blink and the trees will be turning! We've had very little warm weather here- a week or 2 of HOT, HOT, then the rest has been cool and nice- but we do need rain badly here.

I think I'm going to make some rice pudding from a recipe of my Grandmother's. She made it back in 1923 when she was a cook at Cornell University (Mt. Vernon, Iowa). It is a recipe dear to my heart. Perhaps I'll post it, along with a few other favorites now and then. Hmmm... I do love to cook, another way to share with my readers. :-)

The lion is perfect. He's so noble. Compliments Carol. I'm ENVIOUS! :)
PS: And... Yes, I want the recipe.

Thanks Italo and Karen. Much appreciated. I like this griselle stuff! Think I'll keep working with it. And I'll dig out that recipe Italo, and maybe others over time- I made the rice pudding... yum. :-)

I like the sunset feeling of the light in this mini Carol.
I'd love to try it if you decide to share that favorite rice pudding recipe!

It's on the "to-do" list!!! Thanks Mona.
