No offense meant, Frank. Just irritated with progress. Might as well add technology to that list of irritations.

That leads me back to my get off your phones people and actually look someone in the eye and greet them.

Okay my rant is on hold for now.

I hear you, believe me. All the time the city government is bragging about this city's growth but it makes me sad. Too many areas that used to be corn fields or cow pastures are now subdivisions with cookie cutter houses on postage stamp sized yards. Strip mall after strip mall going up with the same Mexican or Chinese restaurants, nail salons, and real estate offices...apartment buildings going up everywhere...and all that means more people and more traffic but the city hasn't done a thing about improving infrastructure like widening roads. Our last mayor had Nashville envy where she wanted Clarksville to be like Nashville...well, she's getting her wish because we're getting the traffic jams and the crime now.

So true 6-7 lmao -- I guess we know now what SD did on his ship for months on end - lol

6-7 you are on a roll this morning - lol Oh yes - the ear story and cold - when my cousin and I were in our teens - we would go coon hunting with our Uncle - lots of times - we would think - what are we doing out here in this cold ! It would get boring sometimes - walking and walking in snow and cold - so we would always come up with some kind of entertainment - one would be to glad a small limb went walking by and hold on to it , then let go of it - it would wipe back and smack the guy behind you - one time my cousin did that and that damn limb hit me right on the bottom of my frozen ear - SOB ! I thought my ear was going to fall off - lol My cousin - of course was about to fall on the ground laughing

Confess, I didn't know what a "toque" was so I looked it up online- a brimless hat.


Amazingly, found picture of B67, wearing knitted toque in same article!

Larry wears a toque in the winter, or ball cap...depending on the chill factor // spring-summer-fall, is always a ball cap.

----------

Canadian
Main article: Knit cap

Man wearing a tuque.
In Canada, tuque /tuːk/ is the common name for a knitted winter hat, or watch cap (sometimes called a beanie in other parts of the world); the spelling "touque", although not recognized by the Canadian Oxford Dictionary, is also sometimes seen in written English.[7] The Canadian-English term was assimilated from Canadian-French tuque. Toque first appeared in writing around 1870.

The fashion is said to have originated with the coureurs de bois, French and Métis fur traders, who kept their woollen nightcaps on for warmth during cold winter days. Such hats are known in other English-speaking countries by a variety of names, including beanie, watch cap or stocking cap; the terms tuque and toque are unique to Canada and northern areas of the United States close to the Canada–United States border.

In 2013, CBC Edmonton launched a poll to ask viewers how they spelled the word. The options given were toque, tuque or touque. Nearly 6,500 people voted, with Edmontonians remaining divided on the issue.

In recent years toques have resurfaced as an extremely popular fashion item, they are used all year round seen not only used outdoor for weather but as an indoor fashion accessory. Many toques are used to promote or advertise as items of Canadian memorabilia i.e. Canadian NHL hockey teams, Canadian provinces and cities and many more popular culture artifacts.

StrykersPerson Good Morning Peeps!

Trying to summon the courage to go out and feed the chickens.

I got busted last night because Mister came into the office to make sure I had turned the heat lamp on and closed them in for the night. Me coming back in the house and throwing a tantrum and fussing about how cold it was should have been the clue that I had locked them in for the night.

Whew! Not looking forward to going out. If you all don't hear from me in a bit, someone call Guthrie 911 for a wellness check!

Do you like creased Wranglers, Lannie? I do, but I will ogle non-creased ones!
Cowboys don't iron their jeans. I like 'em "natural," with no creases.

Is that something you guys will benefit from, you think??
Nope. We have DSL internet, by phone wire. Our TV is satellite (DISH) and every time there's heavy rain or snow, it goes poof on us. If my internet was that unreliable, I'd scream!

But seriously, isn't there enough crap in orbit already? And now we're going to put up thousands more little pieces of crap? I just don't see the point but then again, I don't live at the North Pole (although sometimes we're as cold as that).

Two types of lavenders grow well in Colorado. The first is Lavandula angustifolia or English lavender. It is hardy to Zone 5 and often blooms twice in one season. There are hundreds of varieties of English lavender available depending on the color and size of plant desired. The second is a hybrid of L. angustifolia and L. latifolia. It is commonly referred to as a lavandin. Lavandins are generally larger plants that bloom only once later in the summer and produce sterile seed. The Lavandins produce larger quantities of essential oil but not as high quality as the English lavenders. Both types of lavenders have a place in landscapes and as a cash crop.

Hardy lavender varieties thrive in Colorado’s USDA Hardiness Zones 5 through 7. Note that French and Spanish lavenders are not cold hardy in Colorado but can be used as annuals in containers and outdoor beds.
The Hidcote and Munstead I've seen listed as hardy to Zone 4, but obviously someone was stretching the truth, because they're not. I think I'm gonna see if I can find some of that Phenomenal one somewhere and try that out. If I have to go out with a shovel after the first snowfall and bury it, so be it. IF it survives more than one winter, I'll consider it a success. I have a nice empty spot on the south side of the shop I can plant it in. I can even put a small (shallow) raised bed there to help with drainage, and fill it with a bit more sand than our normal sandy loam soil. If THAT doesn't do it, nothing will.

'Course that shop is metal... the summer heat will probably fry it. If it's not one thing, it's another, out here in the frying pan of the continent.

good story visiting Pa's 6-7
Glad you liked my story, FarmerDoc...an easy one, to relate to.
- Beau hates his ears getting froze to...just as bad as his feet
- I'm on a roll, this morning

Andrew is bringing his Lexus RX350 over this afternoon / go to garage, and put on new winter tires...plus change taillight bulb & oil change.
- so dad staying home today, and head to garage this morning...exhaust leak on 4Runner
- yesterday, plumber installed a Costco laundry sink...real nice job, dad supervised while BabyBear was at work
- so Beau primed the main ManCave room & cut in the color

50 years ago, Toes story time...
- only a few times, living on the farm...were we able to ice skate, on a frozen field
- one such day, the neighbors field ice was arena smooth (like glass)
- so we walked a 1/3 of a mile, to their place...with skates & hockey sticks
- played hockey for 1.5 hours straight, it was a freek'en blast
- went to their farmhouse, to their back woodshed...removed the skates
- my toes so froze, I could not feel them on the ends of my limbs

Now we have to get home & walking with zero feelings in our feet, was to difficult.
- so we made it to the Hwy. and hitchhiked with our thumbs up (we were grade8 age)
- within 5 minutes, an old couple stopped to pickup Twin67 & Beau
- it was a chore, getting into the back & fitting in 2 hocket sticks...due to length
- after we finally closed the rear doors, old guy said..."where you lads going"
- Larry said, "you can drop us off, @ 2nd farmhouse up the next hill"
- if looks could kill, his wife in the passenger seat...gave me a WTF stare
- like really, you lazy little brats LOL

40 years ago, Ears story time...
- at College and a big snow storm in process // College announced closure
- so Twin67 & Beau played table tennis, for 3 hours straight...in the gym
- problem was, when we went to leave the parking lot, there was 1.5 ft. of snow buildup, at the exit...from the snow plows, cleaning off the streets some
- about 10 cars were stuck, in the lot // so a dozen people made a pack
- everyone helps get a car out & park it on the street // but everyone has to come back, and help the other, till every car is out
- the pushing cars, was much easier with a team of young people
- but Larry forgot his warm toque, and my ears were froze off
- we finally got out & home to our College apartment...in our 1966 Valiant

^^ Now, every vehicle I drive has a knotted toque in the glove box & one on the passenger headrest.

If Mister doesn't like my propane heater, then I am going to insist that he sweeps the chimney to the wood burning stove and I will buy the wood.

His gripe is, the propane heater is on the opposite side of the wall from the thermostat and it throws everything off temp wise in the rest of the house.

I get it.

However, I can't hold heat like he can.

Unless I am having a hot flash.

I hear ya SP - we keep our home very warm, and won't live in the cold to save a buck.

PS - rewire the thermostat, to the other side of the room.

But it's so comforting.

Can I just start it up for just a little bit? If I did, Mister would be in here telling me it's not cold yet!

Gives me all the more reason to make sure I can get it started. There is a little trick to it. I need the practice.

Gonna do it!
