Technical Difficulties

My Weekend

You fill in the words.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Word of the Day

(of a person) slender and elegant.

Such a cool word svelte. Who else tries and pairs an S with a V?

I use svelte whenever I can because life is short, and it's a cool word.

Now you go out and use svelte today.

There's A Story Here

My dog Georgie has one very bad habit. She forces herself out from under the huge fenced area to freedom.

The problem here is while I love her dearly, and she's not the smartest dog in the world, plus, she has one eye and is hard of hearing.

So I bopped over to Home Depot to buy some wooden stakes to stabilize the fence bottom and they wanted $2.25 a stake. Steak costs about the same.

HD has reject wood for 70% off so I made my own at a cost of 20 cents each.


The Amazon

They have electric ells, man eating fish, and other real monsters. Nope, I'm not going....ever.

Not on the bucket list.

Until the Cows Come Home

Traveling the rural roads in North Carolina yesterday and these fine beef cows appear in Ashboro.

NC Style BBQ

A few weeks ago I made pulled pork. It was wonderful, but brief. The refrigerator went out that very night and I had to throw most of it away.

Today I'm firing up another batch of BBQ. It takes about twelve hours to cook.

The sauce? It is a NC original and it takes months if not years to prepare.


1 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Mix all ingredients together. Let stand as long as possible, at least 1/2 a day, but the longer the better. The stuff I'm using now is a few years old.

I'll let this sit in the brown jug until football season. It ages like fine wine.

Some of the Gang

Pickins......A1 mouser. Never even seen a rodent turd where he patrols.

Georgie.....A1 fool.


They make my life more enjoyable.

The Proper Way

The proper way to serve a squirrel.

This is where my three squirrels live in the hollow top.

Knock That Off the Bucket List

Great seats, good fights, an entertaining night.

Damn guys hit hard.

All knock outs or technical KOs.

This old guy rarely stays up until 1 AM.

Friday Night Fights

I'm excited.

Getting ready to go to a professional boxing match. Ring girls, thugs, blood, sweat, knock outs, and I even took a beauty rest. I watch boxing on HBO and Showtime but never attended the real deal. I wish they tailgated before hand.

Sabbatical Over

I took my first blog sabbatical and it felt good and guiltless. Ever since my editor retired, I've been overwhelmed trying to run this blog.

So, the rest was needed. I am refreshed.

I had time to plan.

There was travel planning too. I'm headed to Napa this spring.

There was family time too.

I'm ready to go.

Tonight, I will attend a real live professional boxing match. Roy Jones, Jr.
