I learned that the wife of one of the guys I followed way back in the way back died. The American Grouch’s Wife passed. Death is not everywhere. But it’s lurking around the corner.
This evening Mr. big food and I attended a funeral service for the sister of one of John’s colleagues. It’s not clear to me why funerals have been renamed “Memorial Services” but I knew one of the three songs and was able to sing along to the others. I had sympathy for the Preacher Man.
BYUtailgate workflow I am a stick.
I’m in a hotel on the Gulf sorta watching the Texas v. Iowa State game and recovering from an Wintzell’s oyster food coma. I just came across this, via Instapundit: So maybe the world isn’t going to hell afterall. ? I remain– on my good days– optimistic. Sort of. The oysters were great!
Somebody needs to deal with that random orange towel. It’s in the way.
We’re gonna get some wind and rain. Long time readers of this blog– Hey Suek!– know I make fun of the weather prediction folk. They have outdone themselves with Irma. BRB
It’s that 1/2 time of year again. Test & tally batteries. Replace & — now in the age of USB– recharge– flashlight batteries and other lithium ion things. We stay pretty up-to-snuff on ethanol-free gasoline as we need it everyday for the lawn-tractors, tillers & such, but I check to be sure we’re well-supplied for
Kat’s back in Austin. Tony will arrive there soon. Daughter C & the J-Man are tucking them selves in up in the apt. Miss M & the Little Fellow & His Daddy did some Little Boy things this weekend. A late night conversation with Mr. Big Food went this way: Me: I love her but
Long, longtime internet friend, SueK asked how we were. Here’s my response: Yeah. We’re having the rain remnants but nothing more. The coast was harder hit but not in any devastating way, except of course for the Louisiana coast that got pummeled when everyone’s attention was on Houston. I’m sure you’ve been following along. Lots
Is this true? Did TJ really say this? What are your sources? Via Powerline: As Himmelfarb puts it: On his way to church one Sunday, Jefferson was met by a friend. “You going to church Mr. J. You do not believe a word in it.” “Sir [Jefferson replied], no nation has ever yet existed or
Daughter C and I were chatting about WestWorld as we headed to town to talk with Tammy about helping with the wedding decorations. We both agreed that the Bad Guy Character is awesome. And I said– and C agreed– that I had some sympathy with Bernard. Tonight we learned that Bernard is not human. This
figuratively speaking. We’ve just returned from a truck ride to Bardstown, Kentucky, Canaan Valley, West Virginia, Morgantown, WVa., Rileyville & Luray, Va. The Low Water Bridge over the south fork of the Shenandoah is gone. Greensboro, NC to see little ‘Phen and Miss M. And Mama Mama, Picked up some things for the reception from
Ahh. Thanks to Kat & Marg, I know where I am wrt Dailey, WVa. It’s lightninging out there!
Once again, I’m waiting for the lickety split internet …. To deliver some photos. Meanwhile… Tonight’s supper was stupidly good. That’s an egg mould. With a salad in the middle made with grilled chicken (grilled as Mr. Big Food was grilling burgers yesterday)… Those are plums stuffed with humus. And some marinaded tomatoes and
In that (look up) and the two post that follow there was to have been a link to a cookbook at the World’s Largest Store. Last evening, the link was just a box of in your face FlAsHiNG marque-esque “Amazon”– not the link to the cookbook. This morning, though the code is still there, there’s
I wanted to post a link to a cookbook. That’s all I wanted to do. And so, that’s it for me. I’m done with it. See ya.
AND MORE PHOTOS MAGICALLY APPEAR HOURS LATER! The main dish was Basil Chicken over rice, from Life’s Little Zucchini Cookbook. And as I said, the internet and computers aren’t what they used to be. I have just crashed my browser four times by hitting a hard return. And no. I do not want you to
The photos I emailed from my phone to my computer last evening showed up this morning. The internet isn’t what it used to be– nor are electronic devices. Used to be I could just bluetooth a batch of photos from my phone to my laptop. That was back in the crappy olden days. New phones,
