I’M GUESSING KELLY’S DAD PLANTED THE ROSE BUSH I FOUND THIS BLOOMING ROSE ON EARLIER TODAY
I was reminded of long ago tenting days when I awoke to the sound of a light rain on the rig's roof. It was our usual 5:30 a.m. getting up time & a time which never seems to change much over the years no matter where we are.
BEHIND THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE PROPERTY WHERE KELLY PLAYED AS A CHILD
IN HIS LATTER YEARS KELLY’S DAD WOULD WALK DOWN TO THIS AREA FROM THE HOUSE & SIT IN THIS CHAIR UNTIL HE HAD ENOUGH STRENGTH TO WALK BACK TO THE HOUSE AGAIN
It was a good opportunity this morning to check out the reception of our newly installed JACK ANTENNAE & sure enough we right away picked us up 21 channels with 18 of them being nice & clear. And that was without doing a search by swiveling the antennae around. Just have to figure out how to get the TV sound playing through our surround sound speakers now. Trying to figure out new electronic systems can be a real hit & miss tolerance tester. Although we never did figure it out I'm happy to report all our windows are sliding much more freely now that we are using them frequently. A little silicone spray helped as well.
TRYING TO GET TV SOUND THROUGH OUR SURROUND SOUND SPEAKERS…MAYBE IT’S JUST NOT WIRED FOR THAT
A reminder once again to Facebook folks. Because I have been 'hacked' twice on accepting Friend Requests over the years I stopped confirming friend requests a long time ago. If you have sent me a Friend Request & I have not responded to it do not feel rejected or that I am arrogant or aloof. I just do not want to go through the lengthy procedure of getting myself 'un-hacked' all over again. I'm not a big Facebook fan to begin with & only use it to drop my daily post in at the end of each day. I really don't spend any time in Facebook reading things, playing any games or accepting seemingly endless game requests. I'm just not a gamer & have zero interest in that sort of thing.
PHEEBS CHASED SOMETHING LIKITY-SPLIT RIGHT THROUGH THE CREEK THIS MORNING BUT GETTING BACK ACROSS THE CREEK WAS A DIFFERENT STORY AS SHE TIMIDLY TRIED TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET BACK ACROSS WITHOUT GETTING HER PAWS WET
Out of a sheer necessity to have something to do today I washed & partially waxed the Jeep. Got about half the rig washed as well. It was humid so I ended up about as wet as the vehicles. Luckily for the second day in a row we had another weather front move through dropping the temperatures & blowing out the humidity.
Kelly's Brother Peter & wife Leslie came over late this afternoon bringing with them marinated filet mignon steaks for the BBQ along with fresh strawberry-rhubarb pie. Peter did an excellent job on the steaks & we all did an excellent job on the pie & ice cream later. We sure got us a lot of visiting going on…………………
I THINK THAT IS MY REQUESTED ‘WELL DONE’ STEAK AT THE BOTTOM LEFT:))
I do want to offer an apology to my fellow Blogger's for a careless unthinking remark I made in a post a few days ago about a certain type of blogging style. It's not for me to say how anyone writes their posts. My fingers on the keyboard sometimes move much faster than the brain in my head. However, I do have a personality that does care what it says & how & why it says it. If I make a mistake it is important to me that I recognize & admit that mistake & try to make amends. I have always been very fortunate on my blog to have mature readers & despite my obvious & careless slip-ups from time to time 99% of folks have understood my faux pas over the years & have not reacted with immature personal attacks & petty school yard Bullying. And I thank you all for that.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( When Dad's satellite dish conked out, I found him on the phone with the help desk. The television set was pulled away from the wall, and he was staring at the mass of tangled wires that were spilling out the back of it. He looked absolutely overwhelmed.
"Tell you what I'm going to do," he said to the technician. "I'm going to hang up now, go to college for a couple of years, and then call you back."
Don't let the comments of one cause you any concern, keep blogging like you do.ReplyDelete
Man that rose picture is gorgeous. Did you do some fancy photshopping?ReplyDelete
I didn't even get that comment...no worries...chive on, blogger friend!ReplyDelete
Aren't we having fun ??? Roll on .... Here or there we need to roll with the punches ...... Taking things too seriously could be unhealthy .....ReplyDelete
Al, rose photo lovely, such beautiful color !!! The steaks looked tasty !!!
Do you have a VCR or DVD player in the rig? You may have to watch TV through one of those things to get your surround sound. That's how it works for us anywho!ReplyDelete
God luck with the surround sound.ReplyDelete
Having too much fun here in New York too.
You often make me think. Now that's a challenge in itself. :)ReplyDelete
Kelly with her father's chair in the woods - very touching. You and Pheebs need to take the Jeep out for a photo run (more fun than waxing anything).ReplyDelete
The steaks look great! I rarely eat steak, and now I think I want one.ReplyDelete
I can't believe you requested a well done steak...ReplyDelete
