Quick preface. It has come to my attention that I am not a videographer. Or perhaps I do better with an actual video camera rather than a phone. There are problems and I will try my best to correct them next time we go on a walk. Meanwhile– I hope you enjoy the birds, at
Bit of a travelogue, with pictures from the surrounding areas, here.
but you’d have to keep your distance! As you can see from the sky– top left is about due east, top right, south– we may catch some rain (though nothing like they are seeing in Missouri and southern Illinois), so we thought we’d take the dogs on a good walk. Back to work.
I am fairly certain I’ve done the DANGER! motif before. But it’s worth repeating, don’t you think? Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Pardon me while I finish setting up my new phone. I shall return in earnest shortly.
Photographs from two weeks ago. I’ll be posting more from the trip for the next several weeks as I work to reclaim the house. 28 days, 11 hours, and 45 minutes’ worth of dust is really something to see! The apartment’s kitchenette was pretty well equipped. There was no potato masher, though, so I had
This is from weeks ago— our first morning in Budapest, 11/24/2019. Let me define the problem space. Despite spending about three weeks in early November (after Mr. Big Food semi-recovered from being a Hip Crip— remember that?) preparing to travel, I failed to pack a pour-over cone in the checked bags. Recall that we *always*
We were out of coffee and coffee filters, and we cannot have that. So I made a trip to the market. I picked up my bag, because bags costs money at the market. Fortunately (we are ever so worldly and know these things) we packed a bag from home. Thanks to Whole Foods for giving
From the collection at The First Romanian School in Brasov. Interestingly, books and pamphlets were printed as single (double sided) pages, and not in quarto format. A quarto (from Latin quartō, ablative form of quartus, fourth ) is a book or pamphlet made up of one or more full sheets of paper on which 8 pages of text were printed,
Just watchin’ football on a Saturday afternoon. While the beef stew was simmering.
What do you make of this? Genuinely interested in your th. [Insert your thoughts here.] Do your thoughts change with the knowledge that this work of art measures about 10’ x 12’ or so? Whatever you make of this as a single piece, can you conceive of it as the inspirational motif for the interior
Over at A Different Route, Joe Beth has a story about The Great Horse Escape. It reminded me of something that happened sometime during our recent Hip Gimp days. It was a Saturday, I believe. There were several bands of thunderstorms with strong winds blowing through, and there was a lot of rain. The power
Good morning! Hope this finds you well.
It’s Friday night and the salads for the first Tailgate are chilling, the tea is made, the coolers are clean, and the corned beef and brisket are sliced– thanks to Kat– and so what else I’m I going to do? If you are among the randomly chosen readers who are seeing new content here, bless
That was back in the days when we did one (1) tailgate a year. For those, all we did was one main dish. It was a lot easier to get onto campus on Game Days back then and folks brought sides. That was then and this is now. Mr. Big Food has a nice relationship
Mr. Big Food cut the Southwest and Hidden Pastures yesterday. Dogs had a fabulous time! Scared up a covey of quail.
Have a good one!
It was a frigid 64° when I got up this morning. Refreshing. Making progress on the project that goes by the name, “Returning to the Civilized.” College football commences in earnest this evening and continues through the long weekend. Mr. Big Food is excited. As am I.
a tour of The Apartment! The new tenant, Dr. D, says he’s quite comfortable up there. Even appreciates the amenities of the bench and weights. Good call Daughter C & The J-Man! I’m just happy it’s over & done with.
