PS - just back from London trip, this morning / 6-7 a regular fan of Costco shopping.
- got some fresh mushrooms & strawberries, to dry / slice up and place in toaster oven (2 hour cycles)
- zero waste, once dehydrated

LOL ECIN!

Every time I get in my wife's Jeep She's got Willy's Roadhouse in her radio. My fault.... I turned her onto the Highwaymen several years ago. I always knew she was a closet pothead, but who knew she was a closet outlaw country fan!

I'l have to play that little ditty for her!

SYJ!

^^ ill never smoke weed with willie again.
- some comments, for our special ABtHun
- 6-7 gets the job done...

Voodoo Child
1 year ago
I quit smoking weed 9 years ago but if I had a chance to play and get baked with Willy, I would come out of retirement.

ahpacific
2 years ago
For someone from Texas but who moved to LA at 16, this is a gem.
I'm a southwestern man that loves Willie, Johnny Cash, loves Texas and California and weed and whiskey country and old school rap and my friend I tell yah I see no conflict in that! 

keith norris
2 years ago
Willie is one of a kind!!! I was in a small grocery in Vandalia, Ohio one night. Me and this strange looking dude we're the only two in there. We we're both wandering around picking up a few items. Each time I walked passed him (I thought to myself) "I know this guy from somewhere." Every isle, as we passed one another... we both just smiled and nodded to one another. When we both arrived at the checkout, we exchanged a few polite words. NOW, I know he was just messing with me! When we walked out, he entered this big tour bus, turned and saw the expression on my face, he just gave me that BIG Willie Nelson smile, waved and almost half sang " Maybe we'll meet again." I laughed all the way home :-)

Weed With Willie

I always heard that his herb was top shelf
People, I just could not wait to find out for myself
Now can't knock it till you've tried it and I've tried it my friend
I may get drunk in Cincinnati in summer time two thousand and twelve
But I'll never smoke Weed with Willie again!

We learned a hard lesson in a small Texas town
He roll up a fat boy and he passed it around
Last words I spoke before they tucked me in
I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

Never smoke weed with Willie again
My party's all over before it begins
He pour me some Old Whiskey River my friend
But I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

Climbed on this old bus, the Honeysuckel Rose
The party, Las Vegas it was after the show
Alone in the front lounge, it was just me and him
I took one little bitty toke, the grim creeper kicked in

I'll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party's all over before it begins
He pour me some more Whiskey River my friend
But I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

Now we're passing the guitar, we're telling good joke
I can tell one was coming
I'd start smelling that old South Texas, Willie Nelson red-haired, sensibly-made country smoke
People I do not partake I just let it pass by
With a grin on my face and a great contact high

Never smoke weed with Willie again
My party's all over before it begins
He can pour me some more Jack Daniel's my friend
Never smoke weed with Willie again

Oh down in the fetal position with a bunch drool on my chin
Man I broke down and got stone weed with Willie again


Songwriters: Scott Emerick / Toby Keith

6-7 t'anks man--just saw this--I guessed that Willy was Willy Nelson but had no idea what the song was.

Got's to go feed the kitters, Toad and the geriatric Pomeranian--the words reminded me of an incident in my very misspent youth. A friend of mine dropped by from out of town--she had a brick that she wanted to clean and I had an available table. So I sat and talked to her while she picked chicken feathers (chicken thread makes this story OK) and blue yarn out of the brick. Eventually I got tired of watching and got hungry so I dragged her away from the project which by then was mostly in baggies.

We ate tacos and stuff and drank a lot of coffee while she told me about the stuff that was still at my house--something wrong with it but she couldn't figure out what--eventually we went home--where we found my cat (a bone fide Venice Alley Cat) knocked out amidst the remains of a baggy (shredded) and miscellaneous bits and pieces of vegetation. We lookd at the cat, the empty baggy and debris and I told her I bet that I could tell her what was wrong with her product--my cat who was no more interested in 'weed' than I was said that the brick was about 90% catnip. My friend gathered up the rest of the stuff (including the chicken feathers and blue yarn) and took it to someone who she said would "know".

Called me later to tell me my cat (who was still sleeping off the catnip) was right.

Geeze Mel--I forgot--am I supposed to tell stories like this? Probably not--ah well--it was many years ago...and I was only an innocent bystander.

KEN - our local boy finished 20th, this weekend...
- 6-7 don't follow racing, but still excited for DJ living his dream with his elderly Dad / such a nice family
- father Doug Kennington owned a large transport truck company
- he started business from scratch, probably 40 years ago / sold when he retired, in his mid 70's
- his pops financed his sons hobby, from day1 / and honorable man, meaning a handshake one could rely on
- son DJ drives a snow plow, in the winter months...and could go right past, my place


ONTARIO’S KENNINGTON DOING DOUBLE DUTY AT TALLADEGA THIS WEEKEKND
October 12, 2017 NASCAR

MOORESVILLE, NC – St. Thomas, Ontario’s DJ Kennington will travel to Talladega, Alabama this weekend where he will pull double duty with Premium Motorsports. Kennington will pilot the #55 in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, ‘Alabama 500’ with primary sponsor ‘Dirt and Rock’ and he will pilot the #15 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, ‘Fred’s Pharmacy 250’ with primary sponsor, ‘Losers Bar & Grill’ at Talladega Superspeedway.

“I’m excited to pull a double duty weekend so I can get more practice on the Superspeedways,” said Kennington. “I’m looking forward to a good run in both the truck and the cup car and my sponsors are equally as excited. I’m hoping to stay out of trouble, avoid the big one, gain some experience and bring home a good finish in both races. I’m thankful to Jay Robinson and everyone at Premium Motorsports for giving me the opportunity to do this”.


Mike Ford joins team to prepare the No. 96 Camry for GEICO 500 in second Cup attempt for Kennington.

As announced on Wednesday, D.J. Kennington and Gaunt Brothers Racing will reunite for the upcoming Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday, May 7.

The team will have veteran leadership calling shots from the pit box as Mike Ford has joined forces with the team for its second race this season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

Ford, whose resume includes working with Bill Elliott Racing, Robert Yates Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing, has been a part of 25 wins at the Cup level in his career.

“We're thrilled to bring D.J. back into the fold for Talladega," said Gaunt. “He did everything asked of him in February. With the addition of Mike Ford, we hope to build on what we accomplished in Daytona."

In February, Kennington, became the first Canadian since Trevor Boys in 1988 to compete in the Daytona 500. The St. Thomas, Ontario native started 28th in GBR's No. 96 Toyota Camry before recording a 36th-place finish after he was collected a multi-car crash in the race while running in the top 15 at the time.

Kennington finished 14th in his Can-Am Duel qualifying race, earning the first Cup Series start for GBR and owner Marty Gaunt.

Kennington, a 19-time race winner and two-time champion in the NASCAR Pinty's Series, has made two Cup starts, including his run in the Daytona 500. He feels the experience from Daytona in February will help him next month in his second-career restrictor plate start.

“Talladega weekend can't get here fast enough," said Kennington. “I learned a lot during our Duel race and in the 500. I felt like I was finally getting the hang of drafting before the accident took us out. The car was great in the draft and I know we can apply a lot of what we learned at Daytona to Talladega."

Prior to Talladega, Kensington will participate in a pre-season test day at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario for his NASCAR Pinty’s Series team on Wednesday. He’ll fly directly to Alabama for his second Cup race of the season.

Holy chickens! You all have been busy without me! I'm finally caught up, just in time for lunch. I'm sure you have all been on the edge of your seats, wondering when I'll come back...

Florida was great! Only a few hours of rain one day, and temps in the low to mid 80's every day. Got a lot of chances to go to the beach and bum around at the hotel pool. No horrible airport stories for this trip - and I got to go with some coworkers, so I wasn't as bored during my off-time. I was pretty disappointed to come back to MN to a chilly 50 degrees - BUT - the snow is FINALLY gone (fingers crossed), and spring is making its way into MN.

Supposedly today is supposed to reach 80 degrees, but so far has been a little chilly with on/off showers. If the sun comes back out, Radar and I are due for a long walk around the lake.

Got a lot of yard work done this weekend, while SO worked on plumbing and tearing more walls out. I can see the inside of our garage from the couch now! (yay?) Started pulling assorted make-shift pavers out of the yard to make way for the new fence - the previous owner used anything and everything he could find - probably raided a trash heap or a few construction dumpsters - to "pave" random spots throughout the yard. Next project will be digging up all the random buried rocks and junk strewn throughout them (i.e. marbles, trinkets, fishing lures, glass beads, plastic animal toys, you name it), and possibly using them to edge trees. Someone - and I won't mention names - has a nasty habit of peeing on all the trees, so we are thinking of "hardening the target" so to speak.

Gotta call the power company and see if they will come out and trim (or just cut out) some trees in the back yard underneath the lines, and clean up remnants of the fence that used to be lining the yard. We finally met our back-side neighbors on Saturday, and they offered to pay for a portion of the fence project, as neither of our dogs seem to care about property lines....luckily they both get along. They have a 9 y/o white shepherd named Pearl, who Radar seems to think is his current girlfriend (LOTS and LOTS of drool when they play - I guess he likes older women).

Next steps inside the house will be to finish up the plumbing, order cabinets/appliances/flooring, and decide what to do with the bathroom. Then SO will need to re-wire most of the house, and put the walls back where they belong We are considering lifting the house to excavate a basement underneath, but are having trouble finding a contractor willing to do it for a reasonable price. SO wants to add a bathroom and a bedroom or two, along with some storage space.

ANYWAY, how have you chickens been?

No horrible airport stories for this trip - and I got to go with some coworkers, so I wasn't as bored during my off-time. I was pretty disappointed to come back to MN to a chilly 50 degrees - BUT - the snow is FINALLY gone (fingers crossed), and spring is making its way into MN.

Supposedly today is supposed to reach 80 degrees, but so far has been a little chilly with on/off showers. If the sun comes back out, Radar and I are due for a long walk around the lake.

Got a lot of yard work done this weekend, while SO worked on plumbing and tearing more walls out. I can see the inside of our garage from the couch now! (yay?) Started pulling assorted make-shift pavers out of the yard to make way for the new fence - the previous owner used anything and everything he could find - probably raided a trash heap or a few construction dumpsters - to "pave" random spots throughout the yard. Next project will be digging up all the random buried rocks and junk strewn throughout them (i.e. marbles, trinkets, fishing lures, glass beads, plastic animal toys, you name it), and possibly using them to edge trees. Someone - and I won't mention names - has a nasty habit of peeing on all the trees, so we are thinking of "hardening the target" so to speak.

Gotta call the power company and see if they will come out and trim (or just cut out) some trees in the back yard underneath the lines, and clean up remnants of the fence that used to be lining the yard. We finally met our back-side neighbors on Saturday, and they offered to pay for a portion of the fence project, as neither of our dogs seem to care about property lines....luckily they both get along. They have a 9 y/o white shepherd named Pearl, who Radar seems to think is his current girlfriend (LOTS and LOTS of drool when they play - I guess he likes older women).

Next steps inside the house will be to finish up the plumbing, order cabinets/appliances/flooring, and decide what to do with the bathroom. Then SO will need to re-wire most of the house, and put the walls back where they belong We are considering lifting the house to excavate a basement underneath, but are having trouble finding a contractor willing to do it for a reasonable price. SO wants to add a bathroom and a bedroom or two, along with some storage space.

ANYWAY, how have you chickens been?
WOW!

You did ALL that in your "delicate" position?

2.5 acres mowed!

Mel?

Why is mowing so therapeutic?

I wish I could earn a living doing it!

Can't post the music I listen to while mowing.

YOU, SP, have clearly NOT been around enough pregnant women!!!!

It's called nesting and is the human equivalent of a bird carting around blobs of hair, twigs, pieces of grass or straw.

One of group of people I lived with in one big house were married--they had some kids each from first marriages and then had three more together and I was around for the first two. She was within days of delivering when she took all of the stuff out of all the kitchen cabinets and scrubbed all the shelves and rearraged everything...

With the second kid she made her husband convert small closet to a pantry and rearranged all the cabinets again (the first kid was 2 by then) and tiled the backsplash areas behind all of the work spaces.

I missed out on the activity with the third kid--by that time they had built a house up in Los Osos and according to people who were around that house (they moved into it three weeks before her due date but I hear she cooked lavish meals for all the people who were helping with that move and rearranged every cabinet and drawer in the entire house the last two days before that delivery.

It's a pretty amazing process to watch...

Because you are putting the grass in its place and making it conform to your rules. And grass is not nearly as vocal as you guys are when I try the same thing as a mod. Though grass is definitely passive aggressive. It grows when you're not looking and is not above creating weeds behind your back.


And then it sneers at you.


And all because she didn't use a JD.


For you, ECIN????

To be fair....there was a bit of "supervision" on my part...

It was a pretty busy weekend - I did move quite a few of those "pavers"...just much slower than SO's sister and nephew could....ha!

Bug - haven't started nesting yet - but as soon as some of these projects are finished that will be next

OH! I almost forgot! I was gonna make an announcement about the new "puppy"! I don't have a photo like I planned (yet), but Radar is happy to announce that he will be adopting a male human puppy in September. But, he says he is NOT sharing his spot on the couch. We'll see about that

a) The Mrs was pregnant when we bought, our first starter house.
- so Beau and his Twin bro, do the heavy-lifting move, using my pops old Dodge pickup truck
- 36 years ago / this stuff was done with all muscle & brawn
- problem was, my legs got stuck on the front porch steps (walking backwards) with the heavy fridge (in my hands)
- the fridge, came down on 6-7 and pinned me enough...that I was stuck
- twin still supporting all the weight, on his side

^^ Mrs climbed over the porch railing, and lifted the heavy dead weight...off her hubbies body.
- she was 7 months pregnant

b) Our son was in grade12 when puppy Amy was chosen...with a short school workload.
- so they spent, most days together...when she was a puppy
- son was always, the dogs BOY...they were inseparable
- doing homework or playing video games, she was on his lap in the leather recliner...she wouldn't jump off his lap, for at least 2 hours plus
- Amy was in-heaven, in her BOYS company / son was an only child, but had this one 4-legged sister...they truly Loved each other

^^ RADAR will be no different / he gonna be the best big brother..exciting times ahead.

PS - during diaper changes / our baby went on one end of the couch, with 1st dog (Tanya) invited on the other end.
- we tried our very best, to never give dog reason / to be jealous, always included in human-baby daily activities
