Saturday Coffee 9-5-09

PostBy: Freddy On: Sat Sep 05, 2009 5:26 am

Odd time of year. All the blueberries are in the freezer and not wanting to use them up too quickly, this morning we're having "egg in the hole" and homefries. The wife cut's a donut hole in a piece of bread, tosses it in a fry pan & drops an egg in the hole. Flip when half done, leave as firm or runny as you like. The hole gets fried also & it's tough to get the hole away from the cook.
Sept already! Ahhhh, beautiful days, cool, crisp nights. No need for heat yet, but those days will be here soon enough. Let's see...anything exciting happen this week? Ohhh yaaa, night before last the dumb dog got skunked! The 10 month old, 85 pound one. Geepers, with all that weight you'd think some of it would be brains, but, no. Had to mix up the peroxide secret recipe and give him a driveway bath. Luckily he didn't get in the house before the bath. Other than that, I worked a bit putting firebrick in the Jotul 507's. I got new rope for the doors too. One of them will heat the sheep shed this winter. I think today I'll finish that project.
Hope you all have a good long weekend. Bless the soldiers that keep us free. It's easy to forget that every day one of them lays down their life so we can stay the good ol' USA.

Morning Freddy,
When I was more involved in the Boy Scouts, we use to call them "One Eyed Jacks". The boys loved them no matter what they called them. I was looking at the woods a bit closer yesterday and could tell that the dogwoods are starting to change. It seams that they are the second trees to hint at what's to come. The first are the black walnuts that start to drop leaves a little at a time in August. I second you blessing for those that keep us save too. Our flag will be out at daybreak but that's not for a 1/2 hour.

Off to work ...

Morning Freddy, we call them Egg-in-the-Pocket. The 'Holes' are the best :D Mowed the grass yesterday. Wife was weeding, and found two Yellow Jackets nests in the grass! The hard way! :cry: I waited until dark-thirty, then dumped a half cup of gas in each hole, then lit them. BOOM! No more bees. :D
Having a few friends over for a Sunday cookout. Your all invited!

That is a hearty snack, Bob! After the appetizers you spoke of yesterday, this should hold you for the day.
Nice day to be alive....no need for an anthracite injection this weekend.
Nicest weather of the year, go enjoy the fairs, farmers markets, family, friends.......and the traffic! :D

PS: If you are out on Lake George, watch out for the NEW experimental Stoker Scott Ciggy Boat. He loaded a ton of a new 'hybred coal mix' last night, and wants to break 100mph this PM. Satellites are tracing the heat plume as we speak.
:shock: :o :sick: :crutch: :stretcher: :bag:

HI guys,

I'm having a tough time getting going this morning. It's one of those days that you know what you HAVE to do but also know that there is a lot of stuff you'd rather do. My son and I put the finishing touches on our coal storage area yesterday. We got a F-150 load of fill dirt and leveled out behind the retaining walls we'd constructed. Now the ground behind the retaining walls is higher then the rest of the yard; no picking up forty pound bags down by our feet this year! :D Then I put down yard fabric so any spilled coal will be easy to pick up and put were it belongs - in the stove. In years past this coal would be scattered here and there and mixed with dirt and gravel so it was just left and that's money out of my pocket. I bet I have a day's burn of coal scattered around the yard. Our permanent location is right next to the backdoor so there'll be no tramping through the mud and snow (mostly mud) to grab another bag of coal. I'll send pictures later this month after I get my coal. I am happy.

Well, I guess I'd better get started on that 2 DO list. I know summer's coming to an end because of all the school buses out making their "dry runs" for the start of school on Monday. Boy, did the time fly! Have a great weekend. Lisa

I just got a microwave bacon cooker on impulse from Ebay. Just a plastic ring over a plastic grease catcher. Maybe not a good move since I've been known to make blt's with a pound of bacon on them.

Last week I heard a deep rumbling in the sky and went outside to the field; four restored WWII airplanes were circling overhead! Tight formation, I think they were trainers, or maybe Avengers. Big long cockpits and straight wings. One of them said NAVY on it. They flew overhead quite a few times! I took a mirror and tried to signal them, then pulled the flag off the house and waved it at them!!! Camera batteries were kaput so I missed any photos. I got chills from that impressive sight. DVC500 mentioned to me they must have been practicing for a Labor Day Airshow someplace.

Those folks were circling over Flemington, too. It was pretty cool.

Wow, MONDAY coffee this week! Had an excellent cookout yesterday. Fine friends, fine beer. Bee-u-ti-ful weather. Even setup a firepit for the kids to roast marshmellows on. You gotta use STICKS for marshmellows to be authentic. I think thats a law now. :D Cannot use the long grill forks. :D My son helped me trim the cherry trees, green wood, so we made them into great marshmellow sticks.
Watched the Nascar night race last night until 12:00 or so. What a great day.

Morning all,

Things are a little drizzly here in the nation's capital but all else is right with the world - at least in my little part of it. :) School starts tomorrow for both the PS kids and my homeschooled son. He and I have spent the summer discussing what he wants to study this year and then looking for material to use. He will be in 9th grade this year. He is the only one still at home. He is enjoying what we call the “youngest bonus;” mom’s sole attention in time and first claim to what recreational money we have. I’m sure he’d like to do away with some of mom’s attention – his room has never been cleaner and he is really learning a lot about household maintenance. :) I'm excited; I have been homeschooling for 20 years - 3 kids - and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. And I don't think it's the train. What you have to know about homeschooling is it is a two edge sword – the best thing about it is your kids are always with you; but the worse thing is your kids are always with you. ;) I’m looking forward to a new school year and moving one step closer to that light. I hope everyone out there has a great school year. Lisa
