Before Daughter C and the J-Man tuck you into bed this evening, I want you to get down on your knees and pray to the Lord that this scruffy little cat finds a sweet little Israeli child and her family to nurse him back to health, and give him a chance at a better life. Then thank
That’s a pigeon up on the roof. A city-dwelling flying rat pigeon. I know that it does not look much like a pigeon, but trust me, it’s the same city-dwelling flying rat pigeon that was sitting in the driveway yesterday. Gosh, I hope Tiger doesn’t get it!
Due to circumstances beyond his control, Tiger has had to spend a few nights out in the wild– i.e., not in his air conditioned workshop. For the past few nights he’s had to repel the evil forces of stray/feral cats from his perch in his luxury condominium on the patio. We’ve heard the howls. This
I did some reading today. You?
We’re just one big Redneck family! Welcome, Tiger!
Like Tiger, I am a peaseable person. I’m a get along, go alone sort. Nothing much upsets me. I seldom utter curse words. I go with the flow. But I’d be Gol-danged. Sum of a son’s mother I could not find my little recipe notebook in which are the KEY recipes from my misspent youth.
was a bust. Awful. Hardly worth writing about. Certainly not worth a pic. It was billed as “Marica’s Veggie Surprise” on account of the fact that when Mr. Big Food pressed me Sunday morning for the name of Marica Cooks Monday’s dish I had nothing. Calling nothing a surprise seemed honest. Surprise! I’m going to

Daughter C is a good drawer. And at risk of sounding trite, all is well. ~~ Folks who like history and like to think they are smart and like to quote old Ben Franklin’s line: “a republic, if you think you can keep it” don’t know much history. Here’s the thing: Ben never had to try
It is just after 9am central time and I have taken Bebe & Gilbert out, taken Bebe out, taken Rocky and Missy on a fine walk to the peninsula and lower woods, taken Missy & Gil on a jaunt to the leaning tree, played ball in the front yard with both Gilbert & Beatrix, and
Today I will wrap up Marica Cooks Monday and introduce a new topic or two for discussion: But keep the old! One is black & white and the other sort of greyish and brownish with green eyes.
Ever keen to what’s happening on the street scene, I am responding to some low level grumbling before things get testy. As you know, Tiger joined our “One Big Redneck Family” in May, 2015. We nursed him back to health, un-crossed his eyes, and neutered him– leaving him defenseless. We built him a Condo on
Our neighbor dog, Tracker, came over for a visit and Tiger parked himself in a tree. What more is there to say? (Taken with the zoooooooom on my camera at full throttle.)
“Pardon me, Marica. Do you have a moment?” “For you, always, Missy.” “RUFF!” “And of course for you, too, Rocky! What up, Chief?” “ruffff.” “Sorry. I couldn’t help myself, boy. What’s up, Missy?” “I wonder– not because I particularly care, but just because I wonder– is that feline warm and safe enough? I see on
I took the boys on a walk this morning. They had a great time! Seriously. I swear that Tiger has some dog in him. Or… maybe, since he was young when we found him and he only interacted with Rocky & Missy, he imprinted on them. Don’t look at me like that. It’s possible.
If you buy a Farm and move to the Country you can take your vicious pit bull on an off-leash walk whenever you’d like. On your walk you can see all sorts of nature-type stuff. If you buy a Farm and move to the Country, after you and your vicious pit bull return home, you
I know some folks work really hard to take just the right out-of-focus photograph in just the right light with just the right f-stop and aperture and whatever. But all that comes natural here on the Farm.
Responding in comments to a very short post on F vs. C. vs. K degrees, faithful commenter suek says, For what it’s worth..the color of lightbulbs is expressed in degrees Kelvin. 41K (actually 4100K with the zeros dropped) is cool white. 2700K or 27K is warm white, 5K is “full spectrum” and 65K is daylight.
