Bits and pieces

It must be spring because...

The ACLU is suing school districts...

Denver is getting heavy snow...

University students are rioting when a Conservative tries to make a speech...

Baseball season, or at least practice, is here. Green grass, warm sun and watching kids run, catch and tumble like a bunch of puppies after a bone. It does remind me that life is a river that goes on and on... with or without us.

Actually today was a double dip. Grandson got measured for his new football pads and helmet.

If they are on a playing field you know where they are, what they are doing and, to a degree, what they are thinking.

Speaking of global warming, Fayetteville, AR got 13 inches of snow on Sunday,

Local churches are praying for a cold snap...

The garden was almost dry enough to work up but the rains mushed it back up. I need some dry weather. If you work it too wet all you get are clods..

But it is time for setting out cabbages and onions and whether lettuce has wings.. No, not gonna go there.

I have decided to patent my method of using wire baskets for cukes. Keeps them off the ground and easy to pick without disturbing the snakes.

Okra, aka Candy in this household, is still five weeks away. But I have an ample supply frozen from last year, all cut into 1/2 inch pieces, egged, salted and floured and ready to drop into boiling grease.

But I do yearn for some fresh.

Yes, there is some Coon Ass in the family tree.

Last year I set out Better Boys and Better Girls tomato plants to see which put out first... As you might expect the boys were eager and the girls slower.

The flower beds are cleaned out and the buttercups are in bloom by the shrub line and on the hill. I must remember to pick some and using the Easter egg dye provide a technicolor spray for Easter.

See? I can do a post without mentioning Obamie. Yes I can.

Hat tip to Mike L

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel , "pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land".

Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land".

Now Obama has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels, and mortgaged the Promised Land.

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, Savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc. . . .

I called Lifeline, the suicide help line.

Got a call center in Pakistan .

I told them I was suicidal.

They all got excited and asked if I could drive a truck...
