I was sound asleep this morning about 2:00 AM. Suddenly, I felt a sharp stabbing pain in my stomach. My wife had a handfull of fat and was digging her claws deep in my belly. I squealed like a stuck pig and grabbed her hand to disengage the claws from my innards. I don't think she ever woke up.
This morning she asked if I had any scratches on me. I replied, no scratches, just some six inch puncture wounds in my belly. Her excuse was she was having a weird dream. A "little Mexican man" was trying to steal her purse, so she grabbed hold and held on. I don't believe her story. First, she never carried any money in her purse, second, she quit carrying a purse about ten years ago.
It all sounds a little fishy to me...........
Steaks like nice, I have had quite a few cooked in the skillet, but also prefer the grill!!
Now the Jack Daniels' brisket is not among our favorite quick meals. We find the sauce is a little overpowering for our taste. We like the the Sadlers Smoked Brisket from Wal-Mart. We buy the large package and take home and divide it into about four servings for the two of us. It cooks in the microwave in minutes from frozen, add just a little Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce and it is a qreat fast meal. Makes a good "sam-itch" also........
Don't get jealous, do like I did, pick up and go yourself!!!! We made sure our two kids could experience different things in life, now they are married and off on their own. About ten years ago I was offered the chance to go on a mission trip with a church. We traveled to the mountains of Honduras and I have not stopped since. I have been all over Central America, seen the volcanos in Nicaragua, mountains and rain forest in Honduras, Mayan ruins in Belize but most of all, met some incrediable people along the way. This year will be my fourth trip to Belize and I can't wait... It may not be a Church, but find some cause you can work with and usually travel is a little cheaper, not a lot of time for play, but well worth the price to me....
While shopping in the store the other day, I was picking up a box of Velveeta cheese for our weekly nacho night. I looked at the various types of velveeta and found they have:
That stuff is soon going to look like the Spam section, about 10 different styles........
I have owned, in order:
Olds Cutlass Supreme
Mercury Comet (had 2 different models of this one!)
Renault Allience (first front wheel drive car)
AMC Hornet wagon
Chev. Chevette (put over 215,000 miles on that car)
Almost forgot the Geo Metro, got 46 mpg running the a/c!
The rest of my vehicles are still in production.
Came home from the Army late November, 1970. Needed a vehicle in a hurry and started looking at used cars. Found a 1967 Chevelle, step up from a Nova. 2 door hardtop, 3 on the tree, 307 c.i. motor. Basic car, no a/c and what a dog!!! Kept it a year and traded up to a 1969 Olds Cutlass Supreme, what a car!!! Drove that car for eight years and wish I still had it....
I eat gizzards!!!! :B Can't get them at the local KFC anymore but there are several convenience stores in the area that make Chester Fried Chicken and they do excellent gizzards. I usually get just a half order, that and a small bag of chips make a great lunch. Livers, they are good for fish bait, don't know how anyone can eat them.......
Fizz, maybe for a college grad in Canada, but when I graduated from High School in 1968, my first fulltime job at a factory was $1.60 an hour and I thought I was rich. Drafted onto the Army in May 1969, my first full month pay was $98.00 for the whole month, then they got taxes, and we had to send home an allotment of at least $10.00. We didn't need much the first few months, we never left the base to spend it.....
I guess the "best" is four wheel disc brakes on vehicles, also a tie is installing seat belts.
Worse, for me, is the all inclusive touch screen for all the funtions of the vehicle. :h We all know that texting and driving are bad, but yet they want you to fiddle with a screen on the dash to operate the car. Taking your eyes off the road for five seconds at 60 mph is bad, if you are looking at a PED or screen on the dash, to me it is all the same........ :?
When my wife and I were traveling quite a bit, we purchased the Trailer Life Camp Directory and carried it in the cab of the truck with us. While on the road, we would decide how much longer we wanted to travel, open the Directory up and find campgrounds we might want to stop at and give them a call on the cell phone to check if they had any sites we could use. Like you, we did not want to unhook from the truck, just connect elec. and water for the nights use. We rarely had trouble finding a spot to use for the night, and we slept well in the summer with the A/C.
My wife was in our computer room, and our 3 1/2 year old grandson was laying in the floor coloring in his new coloring book with his new colors. I was in another room gazing at the TV.
Grandson comes to me with one of his new colors in his hand.
"Bimp, can you tape this color together, I broke it in the middle." I told him I did not think tape would hold it very long, but he insisted I tape it anyway. The paper around it was not broken, so I put a wrapping of Scotch Tape around it and took it to him. He looked at it and said, "this is not Duct tape." I said, no I don't think Duct tape would help much either. He looks at me and says, "yes it will, Duct tape fixes anything."
I just hang my head and turn around and leave the room.....
Nope, nothing funny about quitting smoking!!!! Only one other thing harder than a person quitting is their spouse quitting at the same time! We both quit in October, 1986 and started on the gum, we used the gum about 2 months and then quit the gum. At times it was like having a couple of three year olds in the house, ( don't look at me, don't touch me, I had that first,,,,, and so on) We lived through it and have been clean now for 26 years!!!!!!
"and they couldn't put it on the internet if its not true...", as the commercial goes.
When I was in the hiring business, I relied on good old information I gleaned myself from references and previous employers, took any googling I found with a grain of salt.
Since you RENT your primary domicle, your home of record to say, I do not think you can deduct interest on the RV. I thik the RENT on a seasonal site will not be deductable either way, but I am NOT a Tax Guy, never have been, just from experiece of filing for almost 45 years and doing my own taxes, good luck though......
NO, NO NO........ YOU MUST USE SMOKED HOG JOWL in the blackeyed peas or everything is for naught. Any REAL Southern guy or gal should know this. You just buy a chunk at the store and throw the whole thing in the pot, after the peas cook, cut up the jowl in either strips or chunks so that everyone gets a piece. If you can't find the smoke jowl, a piece of salted will work, just don't add any salt to the peas after cooking.
We have had snow on the ground during Christmas here in central Arkansas!! It started after dark Christmas day here and dumped about 10 inches in about five hours. Many withour power as it started as freezing rain and coated everything in about 1/4 inch of ice before the snow. If you have family travelling along I-40 or I-30 through Arkansas, travel is very slow. If they can delay for a day, it will be better......
Back in the old days, during hog killing time, we older kids were assigned the job of "Hair Scrappers". Some people used a 55 gallon drum filled with hot water to dip the hog in. Our hogs would not fit in a 55 gallon drum, so we used burlap bags, layed hog on its side, covered with the burlap bags, pour on hot water and let set for a while. Removed bags and then started scrapping the hog hair with a butcher knife. It did not have to be a super sharp knife, we scrapped until it was smooth and then turned the hog and repeated the process. After three or four hogs, we soon looked like a hog ourselves. I am sure meat processors use a more refined method for the small pigs you saw in the display case, but results are the same.
Crowe, et al, Merry Christmas from the soon to be white South!! They are calling for 3 to 5 inches of snow here in Central Arkansas by Thursday morning. Currently it is 55 degrees and cloudy.
The 11 pound pork loin went on the smoker at 7:45 AM, dinner is at 5:30 PM this afternoon if anyone needs a meal........
I am not much on some of the new words either, but using abrevations for words is getting worse with the "texting" style of spelling that comes with the use of PED's. Also, re-defining words leaves me lost sometimes. One word I hate to hear used is "disremember", don't know where that word came from.
My favorite "new" word comes from the editoral page a few months back. The Editor was talking about a local office holder in hot water about a money deal. The Editor said that his "forgettory" was a lot better than his memory! I think this best describes me sometimes...........
