There are no pictures. It just happened. Rocky got called. Out. Of. The. Game. In his box– not his room, his box. Mr. Big Food commented as this was all going on, “He’s just going to tear up that room.” And I said, “That’s why he’s going in his box.” And he said, “Good call.”

Petri dishes, rack, and canister I have about 10 packets of bean and pea seed that are two-four years old. Under proper conditions, bean seeds remain viable for about three years. I am clearly pushing the envelope especially since my seeds were not always stored under proper conditions. I have also just received the first
“The pods are silver-green and produced [sic] large, meaty, brown seeds.” Some seeds arrived yesterday! I’ll be anxious to try these– fresh blackeyed peas (cowpeas) are far superior to dried blackeyes, in my opinion. I don’t even mind shelling peas and beans.

Not tonight, thanks. Perhaps some other time? We were going to watch Bonnie and Clyde this evening. It would have been a perfect evening for a movie. It’s forecast to be about 18* tonight.

Kabobs served over rice with golden raisins and the last of the Texas pecans. And Mr. Big Food hit the end of the line yesterday. Time to do some Friday night grillin’! He called it “a harbinger of things to come.” Indeed. But wait! Didn’t we have grilled steak last Friday? Indeed we did. (But
Indulge me. After a couple of cups of coffee, and some short trips outside, and breakfast, it’s now time to take them on a run in the pasture. There’s an hour and one half of my day. We do it twice a day.
