1. Will you be visiting Scott's cubicle regularly to empty his piss-pot?
That might be a bit awkward in the office setting...
2. How the heck did he recover so fast?
Did it have anything to do with your new running & practicing routine for Git Up dance video?

Alright Frank. |
Let's talk cameras. And go easy on me. Don't go all pixel on me. I can barely operate a computer.
I need a beginner camera. Cheap dollars.
And, don't tell me to order one from Amazon. I need to touch one before I purchase.
I don't think there is a camera shop in Guthrie, but I will check. There might be one on the wrong side of the turnpike.

I know that works with rabbits around here. I think they figure that if you are talking, you're not trying to sneak up on them. They can keep an eye on you and not worry that you're going to suddenly jump out at them from behind a bush. |
In a sorta related thing, I've noticed that whenever there is a predator/prey in the area--coyote and deer, or hawk with magpies, the prey tends to follow along near the predator as he moves along. The deer will follow a coyote as he moves along; the magpie will surround a tree with a hawk in it and fly from tree to tree after him when he moves to a new perch. I think it's that same concept--if you can see something dangerous, you can make sure it doesn't get too close. He can't suddenly jump out from a hiding place and grab you.

A few pics from the hike this morning |
Go ahead and laugh but, I discovered about 3 years ago that if I start talking to the deer, they relax and I can get pretty close, and sometimes the younger ones will come up to me (I had a fawn come to less than 5 feet from me once). It's mainly the younger ones (curiosity?) but it works on some of the does as well. I'm not sure if the sound of my voice gives them something else to focus on and they forget there's a human close to them or what but it works, and when you're trying to get closeup pics like this, you take and use whatever you can The last 2 pics here, I was about 15 feet away from that deer and it just laid there and listened to me talk

- we were walking back to my '84 GMC truck, when the fight broke out
- son told fat kid to F-off, your not stealing my 1st base
- a quick Karate block, of the punch and a few seconds later...
- Andrew's foot came up so dame fast...dad could not even block it
- son was trained to kick & punch, straight through target...several inches
- fat bullies side of head went back sideways / in a split second & fight was over
- all the kid needed was a cup cake after he woke up and waddled his arse back to the coaches corner
#1 KSF..mastering "thinking outside the Box", at work and in play !!
Yep, Beau had fun remembering the karate stories and Andrew was so driven in competition // Dad always solved his growing up problems &/or personal development, via answering one simple question..."what can I do, to build up his young confidence", which as an adult, he has an abundance of.
Few more of BabyBear accomplishments...
- scouted via Atlanta Braves & Detroit Tigers recommending Scouts, as the top Canadian pitcher at 12 y/o // pitched 4 innings at Triple A tournament in Toronto & recorded 8 strike outs (he pitched hard, and had a natural fastball that would rise 4" in strike zone
- sons batting average @ 14, was 0.542 and on base percent was between 0.750 - 0.800.
- bad rotate'r cuff injury, left the game
Billiards qualified Top32 in Junior World 9 ball championships, won trip to Osaka Japan...and Dad went to.
- won the North American World Speed Pool Junior championships, potting 15 balls in 56 seconds (in the finals) // he also run an 8 ball rack off Adult World Champ
- also won the North American Junior Artistic "trick shot" Pool championships, in Tulsa, OK
Back to Martial Arts protection - Andrew was a skilled Brown Belt, at 12 years old...one under Black belt.
- he use to air round house kick dad in the living room, walking through
- Beau would give his s*it, saying one day your gonna miss...but he never did, and always managed to create enough wind, on the side of my head, to mess up the hair over my ear
- he meet the original bully 4 years later, while Andrew walked home with an expensive Saxophone...2 on 1, son said..."frig, another fight to finish"
- they wanted to see and hold the brass music instrument...and one knows, they would drop it on the pavement, nose first
- so grade7 or 8 Andrew, bent down with confidence...in front of their feet
- there you see it // but they wanted to hold it LOL
- NOPE, Andrew locked the case up, at their feet // got up, turned his back on the 2 and walked straight home
- he owned the much older BULLY, after solid training in Martial Arts
- Andrew had power, speed and control
- and SMRT Dad, built a young lads confidence / and the whole process, helped my own brain injury survivor (70 mph car meets my Ski-Doo collision injury) ...the analytical part, was important (to expand my way of thinking)
- killing 2 birds, with one stone
Mrs67 I know would like "Stain Glass"...could be a good hobby to take up plus get back to sewing...thks for sharing good story Mo

I save my twine. Keep thinking I am going to knit a hay net someday. Back in the day, I saved my bale wire. The wire came in handy several times.
I don't think they use wire for bales anymore. Do they Kenny?

I as spreading pine straw again today. As I took of the baling twine I recalled we used to braid the twine and connected to clasps/clips etc...and used for leading and other items. |
Wondered if this is still in use by the country/farm folks?

Toast does take skill as well...particularly if it is French Toast Hmm now I have to make some! I do like French Toast - butter and maple syrup.

We sometimes have Dirty Risotto. Recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis. It has mushrooms in it that are coarsely chopped. I help chop them finer and with the spicy sausage I do not mind them in there - and I would go as far as say I do not really taste them....or I do and ok with it
5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons butter
2 ounces pancetta, chopped
1 link (about 6 ounces) spicy Italian sausage, casing removed
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
4 ounces button mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice or medium-grain white rice
3/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
When we go to friends house I usually try the food unless I absolutely know I will not like it.
We took Mila over to friends this last Friday - She was very good. The friends were here a few weeks ago and invited all of us over. They had a dober as well who they lost in March. They had a statue of a life size dober in the corner. When Mila saw it she gave it a few barks. But then left it alone for the rest of the night.
Back to the food - they had spinach spanakopita as part of the appetizers. I do not liked cooked spinach. In salad it is awesome. Nice spinach, walnut, strawberry and feta cheese salad is great. But I tried it again....was not a fan. The dinner consisted of a salad, wild rice dish, and lamb chops. Was very tasty!
I know folks go through a lot of work to make a dinner for guests - so I try a taste at least.
Last bit about food - When my wife and I were dating she had bought shrimp an prepared it for dinner. As mentioned I am not a seafood fan. But had to "man-up" since new relationship. I ate the shrimp until I was almost sick....but made it through
