Annual Lobster Party

Annual Lobster Party

  We did it again. We pulled off another annual Hunt Club Lobster Party. 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 lbs lobsters abounded…….well, they really didn’t “abound” per se. Bounding would have been difficult with those rubber-band-things on their claws. But in the news, at the same time, was a rare occurrence in a lobster net in New England.   A bright blue lobster was caught.   *****Blue Lobster Caught In New England***** *****Albino, Calico, & Blue Lobsters*****   Apparently it’s…

***************IT’S TEA TIME!***************

***************IT’S TEA TIME!***************

  Our Riding Club season has begun………….. Through the Jell-O-consistency humidity and the dripping, suffocating heat and the hurricane threats (at best)…………..we ride on… We’re idiots… …………equine endorphine-swilling idiots…………   …………but we ride on………… …………and it’s great.   With the advent of our Hunt season, our family’s scheduled “Tea” is just around the corner. And by “just around the corner”, by that I mean it’s five days away…   I just did a hit on our neighborhood liquor store (if…

Cooker-Smokers Rule!

Cooker-Smokers Rule!

  I do love me a slab of smoked meat. Nothing better that a slab of smokey-flavored, self-basted, slow-cooked meat. I could never survive as a vegan. Nope. But, I’m feeling vulnerable. I’m feeling insecure, unsure, kind-of-like trying to fly with one wing. My cooker-smoker has been ratcheted down on a flat-bed trailer and taken away for soldering & repair—————-such sadness. I’d only let it go with a friend who I trust. I trust this friend. It’s in good, qualified…

Sousa and Pretty Explosions

Sousa and Pretty Explosions

    Steaming, simmering heat.       Mother Nature’s promised fireworks to come in the afternoon.     Our stove finally sighed and died a couple of mornings ago.  We woke to a plaintive bleeping and an error-code that kept flashing it’s unhappiness. The error-code couldn’t be fixed………….we only had 1-1/2 working burners out of four anyway………………………and any cookies on the top rack in the back of the oven always burned…………………soooooooooooooo……………….we’re okay with the oven finally kicking the bucket…………………….it…

Birthday Break

Birthday Break

          I’m blocking Dr. Atkins from this post. He can never read this…       You see, my birthday is the last day of this month. I’ve been so good Dr. Atkins’ing it. I really have.   (Pat-on-the-Back;  Happy Dancing;  Fist-Pumps;  Hoots & Whistles.)     I’ve lost forty pounds………………….really it’s only because I can move again. Two new/artificial hips and two new/artificial knees can have that affect on a person. My doctor asked me…

Hands On

Hands On

I accumulate licenses and certifications.    I like learning new things. Usually fringe, new things……………………like the art of using a sling-shot……………..and then……………….what is the best, bio-degradable ammunition for said sling-shot…………………..I know these things now.  Yes, I do. Usually what results from improving the compost-pile of my mind is the necessary RE-certifications.  I’m not a good patient…………….and surprise!…………….I’m not a good student.  Well, not in the traditional-sense anyway.  You know the traditional———stay seated & listen sort-of-thing……………….yep, not so good at that….
