"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.
Terrible winds and fire in W. Texas I read...
Glad you are OK and damage is manageable.
Happy to hear you’re safe and sound. The weather looked terrible, on tv. Did your garden survive the high winds?
Speaking of gardens. We have so much stuff getting ripe and ready for the pot and freezer, it’s amazing. Seems all I’m doing is squash, cucumbers, beets.
AW that’s a shame. Were you going to use the new tobacco leaves in a scrumptous salad?
Sure he is.
Well.....being the great chef he is,,,,,I knew he’d find a way to use those tobacco leaves in a “healful” way being an Old smoker, I was. 3 packs from NY to VietNam and back. Began running and found out running and cigarettes don’t like one another.
It's for after-dinner cigars with home-made port (or something like that). That's as close to dinner as the tobacco gets.
As a long-time smoker, I almost died from a slip-fall accident.
The entire universe is out to get me. ;) I don't particularly worry about healtful. (I'm betting on skin cancer taking me out, anyway)
You are apologizing for zero? That’s a full time job - are you sure you want to go there?
Rain is in our forecast, but I’m not sure I’m believing. Did you have rain yesterday?
How is that poor, hungry, thirsty kitten today? Caleb sure keeps y’all hopping.
If you don’t get rain today, it’s because we took it all this morning.
Plenty of thunder/lightning and heavy rain a couple of hours during the night and then again this a.m. Just gave up and let the sun through about 30 minutes ago.
I did hear, however, that the storm was going to Birmingham, so maybe there is hope for you!
It did thunder a while ago, but since then the sun has come back out. We’ll see.
Stay safe. The NYS Doppler radar looks horrible for some areas.
YES! It is raining here. Should rain steadily for the next several hours.
LOL! I looked at the weather channel a few minutes ago. It showed a thick band of rain from the Mississippi Gulf Coast up past the Vermont-Canadian border.
Good morning! We seem to be around for another day. Last night we had some good rains come through the area. Yay! It’s Friday and so I’m wearing red in rememberance as I have been doing since about 2002.
Glad you finally got rain, Jem.
We have sunshine here for a change. Summer might arrive next week.
Good Morning. We need some gentle, day long rain. We have cracks in the pasture..again.
We’re getting ready for Memorial Day. This year we will have a wonderful Day. After the festivities at the court house, we will have a Vets bbq here at the house. It will be great. And YES, today we wear RED to honor our military personnel.
We have missed most of the recent storm. got some rain we needed but not the storms a lot suffered.
Politicts reving up, I like Palen myself, she is a go getter. A lot of other ‘important’ people running are important to themselves, oh such egos.
The boys are growing up fast, TJ is doing so good in school and loves it, Caleb, well, he is not ready for school yet.
Without fail I got some shack cleaning today, just got to hit that time to srart (I hope).
ALL have a good and safe day.
Yes, it was a good soaking rain, too. Summer is good. I like year-round!
Toby, don’t worry about Caleb (as you know). Just keep him active and busy. You are spot-on in recognizing that he isn’t ready for school. People mature at rates (and I know I’m preaching to the choir) and it is better to keep things unstructured for as long as he has energy to burn. It would be torture for all to try to make him sit through a regular school day.
He’ll be ready before too long and by the time he’s 18, everything will even out.
Good morning! Gorgeous day here in the mid-south. Not to hot, expecting to hit only 90. I love weather like this.
What’s on tap for your weekend?
Happy Memorial Day Weekend to everyone. All my kid, grandkids, and granddogs are home this weekend!!! We are having a family picture out at the ranch this morning. It is so dry we will go to the caprock area amoung the junipers and rocks to take pictures. Pray for rain for us. Everyday another wildfire a lots of blowing dirt. Denco
Be sure to post pictures so we can see your beautiful family and lovely ranch.
Caligula is speaking and he just claimed to be Polish because he met many Polish-Americans in Chicago. Good grief. It is all about him. He is such a fool.
Prayers up for rain.
I miss her a little, and being the sentimental sap that I am, I decided a BBQ was in order this evening.
Ribs and tenderloin on the grill with my home-made BBQ sauce with coffee.
Mmmmmm. BBQ pig, 'tater salad, and baked beans. I consider that a fitting memorial.
Ah, man and you forgot to invite me. It sounds great! Tender, juicy barbecue.
What's on your agenda this weekend?
Continuing working on baby stuff and wedding stuff. It takes time to get the work done and since we don’t know when the wedding will be, I try to have everything done as early as possible.
Well that's the thing. Stuff has been proven to be a forgery or felonious, i.e. all those SS#s, and it just gets ignored by the other two branches of government. Who will rid us of this pestilent foreigner.
Only the LORD God Almighty has the power to rid us of this illegal alien committing treason. I have been praying for Him to do that if it be His will.
...and apparently, heretofore, it has not been His will not to take the alien out. And I am worried that it is the decades of decadence of America that has foisted this monster on us.
Turns out that eating an annoying pig raises it's relative esteem. Who knew?
Prayers up for wedding and baby stuff to go well.
You IS Da man!
Many times, even though I have asked forgiveness for my sins, I have thought that Caligula is my punishment for my sins while I am on this Earth.
You didn't ask me, but I'll answer....
Just replacing the passenger side axle, knuckle joint and steering joint on a 1989 Honda Accord, cooking 2 gallons each of potato salad and chicken pasta salad for a benefit for a friend with a degenerative neurological disorder, writing a script for a fall-back/changeover for a FreeRadius server and backup (or two), documenting everything I've done, business-wise, for the last 2 weeks, putting up a fence, cultivating the garden before the weeds take it away, and generally, trying to stay out of trouble.
Laz would hit it.
Enough with the coffee.
You IS beyond DA Man!
Laz might not know what to do with it!
You both know, do you not, that Laz has been suspended (or maybe banned) for a while.
Doh! I totally forgot about Lazamataz being suspended and thought he, like so many others, was just not posting here any more. Thanks for clearing it up for me.
Me? Bathe in a 55 gallon drum here in suburbia? In my back yard? Some folks get the strangest ideas.
LOL! I’m in suburbia, too. I’m sure my neighbors across the back fence (normal people) wonder about me.
Thank God for good Americans.
GOOD MORNING from the sun filled Ms Gulf Coast, USA!!
Being lazy today, been having an infected left eye for about a week, lots of medication in it, am much better today, sun does not kill the eye with pain as it has been doing.
Happy to report that the boys are dong great, TJ is really loving school and Caleb plays going to school every morning and is talking so well, oh the wonders of a child and I thank the kids for adopting them.
I am in the process of finding a car to buy of Allie, sound some lookers but that is all they were, lookers. I want to get her convertible but she does not want one, wants a mini SUV. Oh, forgot to mention she was on the honor roll this year (as last year) and has the goal of being a counsler, religious at that. She will be a Jr next year, growing up fast and is a knockout, the phone steady rings off the wall.
The two boys have reached that age of squaring up with other and one day it is gong to explode.
Just want to let all know I am doing great now, like an ole car, I break down every once in a while, let the ole bod rest a spell and then up and at em.
Have a wonder and blessed day!
Happy Memorial Day to you, too! I hope your eye medicine isn’t like some of my eye meds. I had surgery on my eyes at the end of March. But one of the drops prescribed for me cost $140! I also had her cut off some skin growths on my eyelids. The ointment for that was another $150! Sheesh!
Do what the doc says, now. Eyes, imo, are very important.
I understand about those boys. My oldest when she was young, kept pushing and pushing and egging on her younger brother. We warned her that one day he was “gonna let her have it.” We warned him that he wasn’t allowed to hit a girl. We punished her but she kept on.
One afternoon she kept egging him on and so ... he picked up a toy pail in his room, a GALVANISED toy pail and beaned her over the head with it. To this day she has a scar about an inch and a half long hidden under some hair. To this day he resents us for making him sit on his bed doing nothing until bed time several hours later. We didn’t spank him but we couldn’t let him get off entirely scot-free. She did have something coming to her. She was punished, too.
Maybe in our next life we’ll be wise parents.
I'm sure there was the arrogant bastard (and that may actually be accurate, based on what I have read and heard) laying the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, those brave fallen heroes, who he is unworthy to untie their combat boots with his teeth, let alone DARE to traipse on the hallowed ground of the burial place of the greatest heroes in history.
May his sins find him out and find him out quickly.
