Wondering about wild grapes

Nice Weather

Not up to much.  Just enjoying this beautiful weather we have been having.  It has been unseasonably cool here.  This morning, it actually got down into the upper 40's but then warmed up to 77 degrees.  Once that sun gets up a ways, it warms up real fast.  Tomorrow is supposed to be similar to today.  Then it is to get back up in the high 80's or so.

I don't have much to say today, but I want you all to have a great day, you hear?

Yum, Yum, Good!!!

OK, I found something that I really, really like the taste of.  You see, I like pickles, especially when added to a good sandwich.  Yep, they sure do make any sandwich taste better.  I remember back when I was a kid, my Grandma made home made pickles, some  where sweet dills.  Now, they had such a wonderful taste but it has been so long since I have had any of her pickles, I am not sure exactly what they did taste like.

The other day, we were grocery shopping and I spotted a jar of Jalapeno Bread-N-Butter pickles.  Oh dang are they good!!!  I ate some on a sandwich just a few minutes ago.
The above picture I found on line, but the ones we bought were Del Dixie.  Let me tell you, these are worth trying.  Hey, if you don't like them, send them to me (grin).

My Dad was a Heinz salesman and we were never out of ketchup, pickles, soup, etc.  Did you know that back then, Heinz also made peanut butter.  It was the kind that came with peanut oil on top and you had to stir and stir and stir until the whole jar was creamy.  Anybody but me remember that?  Now, you all have a great day, you hear?

Feeding Our Dogs.

I have heard veterinarians and kennel owners say that to improve a dogs appetite, skip feeding them one day a week.  Our dogs wouldn't stand for that!!  Like I told you before, my wife cooks for our pups and they get good, wholesome home cooked meals every day.  They get fed every day at or very near eleven in the morning.  At ten, the oldest pup sits and stares at my wife.  That pup is very intelligent and either she or her stomach can tell time.  It is uncanny for sure.

The three of them know their places to eat.  No, we don't set a table for them but they do have their assigned seats, so to speak.  The oldest gal eats beside the water dish, the boy eats out on the screened in porch and after he is finished, he goes out in the dogs' fenced in yard.  The youngest pup, eats inside her "house", but with the door open.  As soon as their food is cooked and cools off, they all run to their places in happy anticipation of what is to come.  They are never disappointed, but that doesn't keep them from begging for more.  Yes, our dogs eat better than some people.  Talk about a dogs life!!!  Our dogs have a good life whether they know it or not.  They seem to love us and also seem thankful, at least we would like to think so.  Now you all enjoy either your human life or your dog's life, which ever you choose, but always have a great day, you hear?

Thinking About Old Posts

I got thinking about some of my old blog postings and went back and started reading a bunch of them.  This one that I found was posted six years ago.  It is fun going back to old blogs, reading them, and reading the comments, too.  Some of those who commented back then are not around anymore.

Just in case you want to read it, too, here is a link you can lick on to go to it.


Now, you all have a great day, you hear?

A Few More Grins, I Hope.

Today, I am going to try to put a grin on your face at the least and a big belly laugh at the best.  I searched the internet to try and find some funny stuff, and here is some of what I found.  Have fun:

At the mall, my five-year-old grandson joined the other children in line waiting to sit on the Easter Bunny’s lap. When it was his turn, Jake didn’t move; he just stared.
“Don’t you want to sit on the 
bunny’s lap?” I asked.
“No!” he shouted. “There’s 
a man in his mouth!”

Wow!!  A carnivorous Easter Bunny.

Girl: Ick! Why does this sandwich have bacon on it?
Friend: You ordered a BLT.
Girl: Whaaaat? I thought the B stood for bread.

I guess it should have been called a BBLT.

We were inspecting several lots of grenades. While everyone was concentrating on the task at hand, I held up a spare pin and asked, “Has anyone seen my grenade?”

I bet that sent everybody scattering in all directions.

“Poor Old fool,” thought the well-dressed gentleman as he watched an old man fish in a puddle outside a pub. So he invited the old man inside for a drink. As they sipped their whiskeys, the gentleman thought he’d humor the old man and asked, “So how many have you caught today?”
The old man replied, “You’re the eighth.”

Quite an accomplished fisherman, if you ask me.  I would like to see the one that got away, though.

Boy does this cartoon bring back memories.  That is exactly what my Mom made sure of, that I never left the house without clean underwear on.  I bet some of you in my age bracket had the same experience, too.

All you husbands reading this blog, take heed of the above cartoon and don't., I say DON'T ever say what that poor deceased husband in that cartoon said.  Lie if you have to.

OK, I have looked and looked and looked and I, too, can't find the "any" key on my keyboard, either.  Check yours and see if it has the "any" key.  That should keep you busy for awhile.  The time it takes you is inversely proportionate to your intelligence (grin).

OK, enough is enough.  I don't want you to get sick of these funnies, so I will stop here.  Hope you got a few chuckles out of them.  Now, have a great day, you hear?

Hey You!!!

What do you answer to?  I answer to a lot of things; Richard, Dick, Dicky, Dicky Bub, Dizzy, Dizzy Dick, buddy, son, mister, etc.  The one thing I don't answer to is "Hey You".  I am not Oriental, I do not have a Chinese name, so ignore people who try to get my attention by yelling "Hey You".  Neither am I Pink Floyd. . . according to the internet, they recorded a song called "Hey You".  Since I only listen to bluegrass, classic country, and gospel music, I have never heard that song.

Now be honest, what do you think when someone tries to get your attention by yelling, "Hey You"?  It tells me they don't know who I am or if they do, they forgot my name.

Hey you, let us hear what you think.

Have a great day, you hear?

Wife Compared To Mom

Compare your wife to your mom. . . DON'T!!  No, don't ever do that, not now, not tomorrow, not ever!  Do you hear me?  Do you understand?  That is a mistake that men make and live (if he survives) to regret it.  In fact, don't ever tell your wife that she should be more like some other female.  Remember, your wife is the most important person in your life and rightly should be.  I found this poem on line that brings the point home clearer than I can:

A Woman's Poem

He didn't like the casserole
And he didn't like my cake,
He said my biscuits were too hard
Not like his mother used to make.
I didn't perk the coffee right
He didn't like the stew,
I didn't mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.
I pondered for an answer
I was looking for a clue.
Then I turned around and
smacked him one
Like his mother used to do.

Poem by Maggie Nutt

OK, now have a nice day, you hear?
