Bits and pieces
I haven’t had much to write lately. Been too busy doing other things. Sad to say, life will interfere with blogging if you’re not careful.
The garden is, like me, in decline. The tomatoes are mostly gone but the cucumbers continue to produce. I do love sliced cukes, tomatoes, onions and bell peppers. This year I added banana peppers and they are delicious served fresh. We shall have plenty of pickle to spice up the dreary meals of the winter.
The okra is producing and producing and producing. I shall have plenty to prepare for cooking and then freezing for later. I call it candy and although there is no evidence of Cajun in my ancestors I must have been born under the “Coon Ass Star.”
Poker Player too has been busy working on various projects. After ridding the White House of rats, visiting Arizona to play and raising skinks and chickens he too took some time off but now says he has solved the man made global warming non-crisis.
A young cat has adopted us. I have no idea where it came from, it just showed up thin as a piece of paper and as shy as can be. Blue, our 11 year old Persian, regards him with great disdains and ignores him at all times. I doubt that Blue could catch the youngster and that’s a good thing for both of them.
I am feeding it outside in an attempt to become friends. So far the results are not encouraging. My guess is that it was one of a litter born under a house or in a garage and was given to some child by another child and was then “taken off” by the adult in the recipients life. How cruel and cowardly that person was.
So I feed it. Sooner or later I will catch it and off to the Vet for shots and neutering/spaying we will go. Hopefully it will agree to living inside. But if not, that’s fine too.
I see that the judge has pretty well gutted AZ1070. Oh well, what would you expect from a Clinton appointee? I wonder if John Kyle would like to withdraw his glowing praise of this Leftie.
On to the SC!

"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
