We had supper at Ajax in Oxford this evening. Ajax has, in my humble opinion, the best restaurant-style Country Fried Steak and two sides any where around here where “here” is taken to mean this universe. I usually get mashed potatoes and green beans(m). The “(m)” indicates that the vegetable was cooked with meat. Inspired.
For the rest of the month, I am just going to go along with this silliness that a two-bit actor who never traveled anywhere and certainly did not know anything at all about English court– let alone Danish– wrote the best literature of Western civilization (cough, cough, Bacon was Shakespeare, cough) and invite you to a
You never know what you’ll find plastered on a wall at That School Up North. You just never know.
The scene from this evening. What you see here on the leftward side are a number of lights pointed directly into the area from which the deer are coming, and surrounding the area where my tomatoes are. I’m going for the “deer in the headlights” effect. (The lights on the rightward side emanate from the
You should see how clear the sky is right now! I’m taking that as a sign from God. But just to be on the safe side– because a healthy dose of skepticism is always warranted when dealing with the philosophical– I think we’ll serve inside. (See now why I wanted to wear that cite little
I, for one, am going to readjust what I’d planned to wear the next few days. At times like these, it’s important to consider footwear. Let’s imagine a blustery day in late April. The tornado sirens sound. You and 30-50 others are in a lecture hall at That School Up North. You must quickly and calmly
Wait! What? Where are you headed? This is a pretty amazing story! Missy was outside and I realized she was barking which is something she hardly ever does unless… “Oh! Marica! That’s just not true. I don’t need my Dear Friend Rocky to tell me when to bark! I bark at the birds all of the

As I mentioned, Mr. Big Food and I traveled to Oxford, in Lafayette Co., Mississippi, home of That School Up North (TSUN) today. We left the Farm a little after 9am. (Sorry. We don’t have GPS in the truck and I turned it off on my phone, so if you’re listening in, you’ll just have

TSUN = That School Up North, also known as Ole Miss. From WMCTV in Oxford (via Breitbart). Keep in mind that Ole Miss has a FIRE green rating– one of the best– in the top ten– schools in the country for free speech on campus. OXFORD, MS –(WMC-TV) – While you were sleeping, protests were
Today Mr. Big Food and I traveled to Oxfordtown and TSUN.* Miss M and Mike joined us. There was an EVENT on campus. We were not there for the EVENT, and that’s what I told the security guard who was guarding Visitor Parking Street, but he let us park in EVENT PARKING anyway. As per usual
for some football? Folks around here sure are! This week’s newspaper included the Three County Football Guide 2012. It took us a while to learn how to spell ‘Oktibbeha.’ Sixteen colorful pages of analyses, schedules, introductions, and advertisements. 16! Page 16 really cracked us up.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has awarded Mississippi State University the ‘Green Light’ rating for MSU’s free speech policies. I’m pleased to report that That School Up North also has a FIRE green light. So here in Mississippi we have two, of only 15 colleges and universities in the United States of America,
I need to take a second and make sure we are all on the same page here. Reader Aggie, from Shoestring Manor (located in the the southern part of Our State), said something in the comments to a recent post & I replied: This is Our State!
I still can’t get over that remark from one of our employees. She characterized us– the citizens of the Hospitality State— as “disgusting and shameful.” She’s entitled (isn’t everyone) to her opinion, but I think it’s ill-mannered to talk this way about your employers. I was disappointed that there were so many weeds (not pictured)
Just back from Oxford Town and That School Up North (TSUN). Fun as always except for the New Jersey drivers. Before we left for the Farm, we had a drink upstairs at City Grocery with the TSUN gang. Which reminds me… . My new issue of Garden & Gun came at some point in my
Dogs are fine. Seeds are fine. We have company. Company’s fine! I’ll be back. P.s. Goin’ to Oxford, Mississippi to visit That School Up North tomorrow. Should be fine.
