"We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail!" President Bush
The big news of the day is the death and burial at sea of Osama bin Laden. Thank you, President Bush and the US military (including my son and future son-in-law) who made this day happen. Other news is the nuptials of William and Catherine in Great Britain. May God bless their union and draw them close to Him in Jesus Christ. Alabama (my state) and other southeast states continue the task of digging out and rebuilding. A massive effort is underway with able bodies and supplies needed.
TGIF from the GlenWiilow Tavern. A Greek wine tasting soon w related food which my date will probably eat as most will be meat. I had mucho errands so am early n having some wine n catching up online.
I recall posting to you when your mom died Jay. Was thinking that there are four of us (maybe more. Poor recall) that lost our moms this year. You. Jim. Nita. And me. And we all shared stories on numerous occasions of their life. A sad first Mothers Day W/o them
There is no possible way to make them any angrier. He is just using that for an excuse. Anything he can use to deflect and diffuse.
I've been moving her around the yard in her movable 'compost pile' so that the stink doesn't get overwhelming, and she really does a great job at killing grubs and tearing up the ground.
Down side is feeding her. I've been grinding corn (by hand) and making hot-water corn cakes, and she gets table scraps.
I did wimp out a couple of times and tried to feed her whole corn, but she didn't really seem to eat much of it.
But I do have a spot in the yard with 4" corn plants. They're growing like crazy.
Ding, ding, ding, ding! You are so right. He is not to be believed EVER.
A month ago, I was helping animal control and a cop load some loose dogs, while standing 70' away from Miss Piggy. I'm the one that called animal control.
I've been taken brazen lessons from the leftists. I just use my brazen flouting of the rules for good.
Dolly my Mom will be gone 2 years this July....yet it seems like it was yesterday....something you never quite get over.
Blessings to you.
It’s good to be here, dear The Raven!
I can’t remember what state you are in,, but it is against the law to feed table scraps to livestock in Iowa. The law may be different if your critter is for your own consumption. Just not sure about that.
“Miss Piggy” must still be small if you are successfully hiding her. 8^) Please keep me posted... I am looking forward to hearing how you manage to keep her hidden in a couple of months.
Hiding a 50 lb pig is enough. 2 more months would make me crazy(er).
We're done. Finished. Finito. Esto es finale.
I'd feel worse for the pig, but she's just so damn annoying.
Anybody as outrageous as me HAS to come from Texas.
Jim, you are absolutely right.. that time has flown. I was so sure it was this year.
My past year was really REALLY consumed in my mom’s care and I guess most things were on the back burner during that time.
My mom remained at home, as was her FIRM desire & never got sick as such.. just gently faded away, keeping her mind, eating & drinking to the end. She knew & I knew her time was limited. She saw her “transition team”(as I call them) often & chatted with them & also with “her angel” as she called her. It was a blessing to be part of that but sad that morning when I came to her bed & instead of a nice smile & bright eyes, was greeted with a cold shell of mom.
With mother’s day tomorrow we all think of the memories of our moms.. and maybe OTHERS who did some mom’ role along the way. Mine was my Christian mom Irene.. Those of us who are mothers reflect on how our children have influenced us and our lives
Well, I know you have had a lot of changes this past year & I hope all is going well for you.
You speak great truths, Dolly.
My mom was in the hospital less than a week when she died. My sister said the hardest thing she had to do was to take mom into the hospital, knowing that she would probably not come out. Mom suspected that as well, and cried softly on her way to the hospital. (I choke up just thinking about it....)
The legacy our mothers left behind will continue to give us strength and courage as we face the world. They left this place so much better for the rest of us. You can't measure that.
I remember sometime after 9/11, he was seen leaving a Pakistan hospital with a “portable” dialysis machine. I’ve wondered who long he would last fleeing from one cave to the next with that machine. I wonder if Team 6 found the machine in the “mansion”?
or if this was all a ploy for sympathy & hoping the west would back off from diligent search , as he was SOOOOOO sick & no longer a threat
Good morning ping!
Good morning backatcha!
FWIW, I’m not planning to start a weekend thread or even a new thread on Monday morning. It is my thinking to keep this one going until it becomes too unweildy or until the first Monday in June. It isn’t really my intention to be “boss” but just simply a thread-starter-person. Any thoughts?
A special ping to my friend Toby. I’m missing you, sweetie!
I can’t remember WHY it’s illegal to feed ‘slop’ to pigs, but I know it is....
Good “Sun Shiney” Morning!! Unfortunately, I have places to go and things to do so I won’t be able to take advantage of it.
Wishing you the best of a Mother's Day weekend.
Thank you. I did a quick research and the basic answer is that swill feeding is a major cause of hoof and mouth disease. I imagine this applies to especially to commercial piggeries but the law was made generally because of the seriousness of the disease. This last sentence is just a guess.
Thank you, Sir.
You’re welcome, Ma’am!
My dear neighbor, an older lady, just came by looking for her glasses (yes, they were here). She might have had a little too much wine last night. LOL! Good to see that happen to someone that isn't me.
May The Lord be with all patriots of good heart toward Him.
Unless the slop is cooked to a certain temp for a certain period of time??
I think it’s a disease factor.
I need to see if there is lipstick on the pig, and if it's declared for the Republican nomination.
M Kehoe: I just cut the grass.
Bonefish Grill announcer: You deserve an almond encrusted sea bass with mango salsa, and a pomegranate martini.
Sheesh, I sound like a commercial...
Would young pork be more tender and succulent? Do you have any great recipes for pork preparation John?
On the mention here tonight is grilled strip steak, Greek salad, and...potatoes of some sort or another.
I never was much of a fan of Greek wine, Dolly, at least none that I tasted. But I do love saganaki. And Tzatziki. And avgo-lemano soup. And...and...
Make that one the MENU, for tonight.
Salt, pepper, heat.
I am beginning to think we did have a party here last night. The piano keyboard cover was up, and the banjo was next to the toilet. Fridays are always so confusing.
Marvelous inspirational read! Good for Clear Channel who is really stepping up to the plate and those wonderful American neighbors.
Search on the title if the whole article doesn't come up, well worth a read.
Feeding the farm dudes is all I am up to doing. There were 5 of them today,, actually 4 plus a youngin’ who can out eat them all.
Wish you were here.
Yes that could have been the ploy. That’s one reason I’ve thought he was no longer among the living until Team 6 sent him to allah.
This last time around in the AF, support was all I could do. And as daddy said, if you can't be an athlete, be an atheletic supporter.
So at 50, I'm studying greek. Navajo is easier. I can say that "I'm stupid" in Navajo.
Greek lessons are NOT playing well in Cowtown tonight.
Sis's big consern was that 'we boys' do something for mom on Mother's day.
So we will. My brother will be up at 0-dark-thirty to drive out to pick me up, drive down to pick Mom up, drive back up to the little church that Mom favors. My poor brother will spend most of his day tomorrow driving.
But we'll take her to church. And I will appreciate every moment of it. Even if she gets a little confused.
Because I don't have that many more Mother's Days left.
My daughters, of course, will call me and wish me a happy mother's day. They do every year, in a military kind of way.
And my brother assures me that he carries a fire extinguisher in case something untoward happens when I step into a church in a suit and tie.
Much longer. I don't seem happier.
Till, I don’t think he could have survived that long on a “portable” dialysis machine. If I ever can get hold of my daughter - who has worked in the kidney dialysis field for 12 years - I’m going to ask her how long her patients can survive on dialysis. I don’t think it is long term - like Osama supposedly survived.
That’s why I’m not sold on them having gotten him. I think he passed on and was buried long ago. In a way, I hope I’m really proven wrong!
Good Morning Everyone! I am going to go pick up my 93 y.o. Mother today, and bring her home with me. She lives about 20 miles away. The farmers will be working today, so I will be cooking. We will celebrate Mother’s Day for ME after the crops are all planted.
Have a great day with your mom. Hope your suit is flame retardant!
Happy Mother's Day to all you great moms out there, and for those of you who have great moms. You continue to inspire this wretched soul.
Your most humble servant!
