A "slick" that ain't so slick
or “Yes, I’m aware there is a major oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.” As a result, I will preempt the cabinet post. You’re right, I can’t ignore it any longer. I can’t continue on my merry way with the new house, and act as though it’s all a bad nightmare, thinking when I…
Adventures and Articles
I’ve been studying long and hard for this Saturday’s upcoming radio show topic about a man who shot a trophy deer in Illinois, brought the testicles back here on ice, and someone from LSU extracted the semen from this deer and then artificially inseminated does at a research farm.
Thou shalt not covet . . .
these Zydeco dancing boots . . . nor these one-of-a-kind Louisiana boots made almost 55 years ago . . . but can I just dream a little?
From Fall to Winter – Archives Contest
Before we move totally away from Fall and on to the first official day of Winter, I want to show you what abounds here. Unlike the northern part of the country, where I imagine there are pumpkins everywhere, we harvest a few different things . . .
Mommy, I can fold the clothes, too! Without photos, most of you would not believe the things this little coon is capable of. She always wants to be where I am–whether it’s folding clothes or cleaning windows tending the plants . . . hanging clothes on the line . . . or just helping me…
Phone must mean "pay to talk"
I mean, I really do enjoy talking to the people and doing business on my phones. But just exactly what does that word phone mean? Somebody tell me. And what does cell mean? And what does tele mean? Because right now, they mean nothing more to me than paying to talk over the wires and…
Can you believe it? I’ve been sitting here doing blog chores for the past hour, listening over and over again to Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds!
This is the very best video of the song ever. EVER!
Betcha it’ll make you feel better, too!
And your birds are beautiful.
So, I’ll have to wait until my techno-son gets home from school tomorrow and hooks up speakers to my desktop before I can hear this audio/video song; but isn’t it more than just a tiny co-inky-dink that you were listening to Three Little Birds while I was blogging about them. I mean, are we THAT connected already?
The Owl I recognize, but I need “ejucatin” about the other two. The second one, I’ve seen in photos but have no idea what it’s called.
All you need do is “scroll over” and the text tells you what they are . . . . and these were all three seen in the same swamp, which is on my tour route for the luckiest who get to go there.
Steffi, BW put the names under the last photo I think. Blue Heron and Night Heron??
Right you are, Cammy!
Love the pictures. You do have an eye for capturing nature’s beauty.
Thanks for your time and efforts
Soooooo, it’s getting very hot down here. I almost got sun stroke today on a fishing trip. When are coming for your tour?
Up to my neck in work now thru middle of July. Maybe I’ll bring an umbrella and cold watermelon for you so we can take the tour.
Bayou Woman is having trouble sleeping at night when she should be and having trouble staying awake in the daytime when she should be. Any advice?
Uh-huh. Tell the rest of the world it has to adjust itself to your schedule.
My mom’s done it with me, and it works great for her!
Go wit de flow.
Blu sleeps when he sleeps.
Out to local pond tonight and Great Horned Owl picked a couple fish out of the water. No Bat sightings tonight.
If you figure out the answer to the sleeping problem, let us all know please. For some reason, everyone down this way is having trouble sleeping. My son came by this evening and he was dragging. Said he woke up at 1:30am this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep. Hope he sleeps tonight. He gets really cranky when he is tired. I think it is the humidity that is the problem here.
Thank you for your comment, though I’ve had more gloom and doom today than I can stand. With BP finally releasing the videos of the oil leak, and now posting a live feed, it’s just more than I can bear to look at. I am literally sick over this tonight. Now, I’m just hoping I can put this all out of my mind enough to go to sleep. Please don’t be offended if tomorrow, I delete your comment, just because I simply can’t handle the bad, bad news. Sorry.
Thanks, Carrie, but I fear you’ve caught me at my worst. I had no clue you were a “lurker” here, but I’m honored that you are!
