A text from Daughter C. to Kat, Miss M., and I: They are a funny bunch.

Three weeks or so ago, when the MS NWS (Mississippi branch of the National Weather Service) alerted me to prepare for tornado season, I checked my preps. This is something I do twice a year. Being prepared for tornadoes, hurricanes, power outages, and zombies makes preparing to spend significant amounts of time isolated here on
I was working on a long post and lost interest as things out there beyond the Farm whirled around. So I give you a few short takes. Hereabouts, there is no shortage of TP or bottled water. One explanation is that we Country Mice are woefully ignorant of world events. Could be. Another is that
November 27, 2019. Originally posted some time ago. Enjoy! As you can see, Daughter C outdid herself. Lovely, don’t you think? The weather is forecast to be very Thanksgivingy– Southern Country Mouse-wise. One or two Thanksgiving orphans will join us. Traditional menu, though not sure what Daughter C and The J-Man are bringing. Table is
I had asked, in the previous post, Daughter C & The J-Man, Miss M. if you’re reading this, how about telling us what’s going on in your part of the world? Daughter C delivers. Miss M is dealing with some non-hurricane related water issues.
A Weatherflow site at Calibogue Sound, Georgia, recently measured sustained winds of 37 mph (63 km/h) and a gust to 49 mph (79 km/h). An observation at Sapelo Island, Georgia, recently measured sustained winds of 35 mph (56 km/h) and a gust to 48 mph (77 km/h). It’s going to rain a lot on Miss
If you’re reading this, could you tell me what the switches to the left of the sink in the apartment turn on? Can’t figure it out. Thanks!
When Daughter C and the J-Man left the Farm, they left behind about 13 overflowing boxes’ worth of crappy old books. Mind, none of the books were actually in boxes when they left, they were on shelves and other surface areas of the Apartment. Months later, one of the tasks the Farmhand pretended to do
Happy Day After Mother’s Day! A comment from SueK yesterday reminded me of something. We wished each other Happy Mother’s Day and she said, “Telephone time!” Kids were calling. Back in the crappy olden days when everyone had a landline, Mother’s Day was the busiest day of the year for calls. Sometimes when you tried
A text I received from Daughter C this morning. I’d mentioned to her last evening how pretty all of the flowers she planted a few years ago were. Next up, photos of the grapes, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and apple trees she and The J-Man planted.
via Powerline’s The Week in Pictures Going to be sorting through the books Daughter C & The J-Man left up in the apartment. How many copies of the Iliad and Odyssey do you think are up there?
I look forward to Claudia’s Sunday Evening Art Gallery. Today’s is fabulous! Check it out (I’m looking at you, Daughter C & The J-Man).
As Missy is wont to do, I’ve began last Sunday’s Travels in the middle of things. So let’s back up. First– thanks to Daughter C! Not only were the photos taken by her when she & the J-Man visited the Walter Anderson Museum of Art, but also she kindly supplied me with a lot of
In order to realize the beauty of man we must realize his connection to nature. Walter Inglis Anderson More coming soon– including The Little Room!
“Missy! Rocky! Come ‘er!” Marica hollered. Missy and Rocky jumped from the bed and ran into the kitchen. “What is it, Marica?” Missy asked. “What is it?” “Ruff? Ruff?” asked Rocky. “You’ve got mail!” Marica said. “Ruff?!?” “Really?!? We have mail! Oh my goodness! Oh my!” Missy said excitedly while spinning around in circles. “Who’s
Originally published January 24, 2016. Daughter C asked for some slow cooker recipes. Here are a few links to recipes here on the blog. Unless otherwise noted, all have photos. Note that many of the recipes are migrants from the old blogger host and so look a bit weird (but it’s the recipes that matter).
Might warm up the joint a bit. It’s cold out there!
