No, I don't believe he has.
If I hear otherwise, I'll let you know.
Sure he'll check in here at the earliest opportunity though.
(well, after he takes a nap of course)

Quoting RobDaHood:
Good Luck in your retirement Pottery!

You Jest, Shirley ?

"Retirement" is one of those words with multiple meanings.

It could mean 'withdraw', but I leave that for Swamp to deal with.
It could mean 'retreat', but noboddy around here knows what that is.
It could mean 'rest' as in 'siesta', but that's wishful thinking isn't it.....

So, in short, we are no further along than we were when we started........

Has Snakeymon reappeared from his awolness ??
Everything seems so Relaxed..........

Greetings !
My trip to San Fernando was rather painless. Mission accomplished.

Had friends for lunch.
Well actually, we had lunch in the company of friends.
Which is a very different thing altogether.
Lively discourse, a bottle of wine, plates of food.
Now is a good time to Retire.......

(wish me luck, here! )

in the "Happy News" category...

One of my favorite organizations is Toys for Tots.
The Blue Angels used Fat Albert to fly in toys for kids in NY and NJ who were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Not the first time, they have flown Toys for Tots missions into storm ravaged areas in the past, but still...so good to know that our military is trying to make Christmas a little better for the kids.

Thanks Guys...You Rock!!
(and thanks to everyone who donates to support these efforts)

Both sound like worthy pursuits Shep.
Maybe you will share the results of your research?
You could probably get a research grant but all the paperwork would likely defeat the purpose of retirement.

Thanks for the tune!

2. Which lure works best on December Blue Gills.

Ah, Cinnamon Girls are always good......
Good tunes there, thankee !

Going to crash early.
Had one of 'those' conversations earlier...
You'all know the one..

"So, what are you doing in the morning?"
Me, "Er, I have a few things planned that I didnt finish today"
"Oh. Because someboddy has to take a painting to San Fernando before 10"
Me, "Ah, somebody, huh?"
"Yeah, I dont know where the place is"
Me "Do you have an address?"
"Oh. Thanks. Here it is. That's the painting. And a phone number too!"

Yep.
Done in again.....

So, here you go Lord P. A little spice makes everything go down a little better. Who among us hasn't dreamed of The Cinnamon Girl?



Actually, Susanna reminds me a lot of a very dear friend who always knew how to bring a smile to my face. Still can...

This one ought to give you sweet dreams.



Okay...I promise...no more Bangles girls tonight.

So, Pottery, How was the blackened lamb?


Nevermind...you answered while I was typing.

Quoting RobDaHood:
True, but a good bartender cost nearly as much as a good secretary...LOL

I survived it. Watching Susanna Hoffs for a few minutes always makes me feel better.

Kokomo doesn't sound like a bad idea, but Pottery spoiled my fantasy. Even 'down de islands' they have Christmas Rush.

Oh, well.

Mustique perhaps?

Heh!
The overdone lamb was quite good.
Well, better than the option, which was a slice of bread.....

Anyway, I have always found that some decent rum takes the Misery out of Mondays.
So I had 2 of those.
Now, all is well.

Has not rained for a couple of hours, but I'm thinking some showers are in the near future.

Hey POTT: smoked meat is better than hot mouth and cold shoulder

Pottery, you are so distracting to the ladies!
Next time don't wait until you are sure that you smell smoke before saying anything.

Man it has been Monday this evening.
Right about 5 pm I had 3 parties trying to phone me. I need a good secretary but a good secretary makes more than I did last month so...

Then, I thought I had it whooped, mixed a drink and brought it out on the deck. Said to myself, "Self, perhaps you should bring your laptop so you can check your personal email, check your blog, and listen to some tunes."

Self said unto me "Yes, that does sound like a good plan."

so, while setting the laptop down on the little table, I knock my drink and spilled half of it.

Uggghhh!
I don't like Monday!

Hey there!

More rain today with almost an inch in about 45 mins, according to Lady Pott.
I was in the city. The Traffic was Bad. Everywhere.
Must be coming on Christmas or something.

Was just having a beverage with the Lady, and I said "so, should I stir a pot or something?"
Her response was Immediate and Frantic.
Tonight we will have rather burned minced lamb........

Stuff happens when your'e having fun.

Well, I had to accompany Lady P. to the plant shop.
She needed 3 bags of horse-manure.....




Why would she need four bags???

Turns out that the Original bag of Horse Manure was somehow lacking.....

Evening: Most of the tree parts are picked up along with the leaves. Gradually things are returning where possible. Town's delayed Christmas Tree lighting and concert tonight followed by a kids parade with Santa on our 1929 pumper. Our version of " Whoville. "

40 F., 90 % RH with wind normally followed by frozen nose and toes. Since my GF sings with the choir attendance required. I see Rum Martini in the evening to ward off the chill.

Good to hear that although I know it will be a long time until things are "back to normal" for many.

The chill? Well, yeah, but have two...for the lurgy, which I hear is even worse than wet, sticky, manure!

Pottery, I really do think that both you and RTLSNK should consider ponies for the grand children. Would save a lot of manure hauling. Yeah, you'd have to get the occasional bag of sweet feed, but it smell better in the car.

I am taking my medicine early today as well. Just to make sure I don't get busy and forget.

Drove there and back in heavy rain, offloaded the wet bags of HM in the rain, checked the levels of all cisterns and tanks in the rain, diverted some water-flow from one place to the other in the rain.

Oh, did I mention that it's raining?
Well, it is you know. An inch and a quart. so far. Constant drippy drizzle with sometimes heavy.

Now it's time for a hot shower and a glass of Medicinal Grog.
Yes. I know it's early. But one MUST take the medicine. Whether one wants to or not. Doctors orders, and all that.
To ward off the Lurgy.

Hi Pottery and Pcola.
Lazy Saturday AM so far. Hope all is well for you guys.
Yes, growing a forest is a worthy project and a treasure to leave to future generations!

Well done Pott.

Enjoy the game and the afternoon Pcola.

Beautiful day here..
A good SEC football game coming up at 3pm if your interested.. :)

Maybe the cisterns will fill for you pottery, and the siesta sounds well deserved..Good work helping others my friend.. :)


Good to see you, Pcola!
Me and Lady Pott (and others) have been involved in planting there for about 16 years !
Trying to re-create a forest that was there a long time ago. But the land is degraded, though getting better.
Nice project.

Greetings !
Spent the morning doing some planting at the WildFowl Trust.
It rained down in bucketloads and we were well soaked to the marrow, we were.
Still drizzling here on the house, but seems to be lifting a little.

Might be time for that elusive siesta in a few.......

That's quite a blob you've got there Pottery. If it decides to move a tad west you're gonna get downright soggy!

Just rainless clouds blowing off the Gulf here today.
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 96 Comments: 31973
Sounds like a Good Plan.

Rains are here.
Squally stuff, and quite dark and ominous.
Good weather for a Siesta, but too late in the day for that!
Looks like plenty more's a'comin'.....

Got to figure out what's for supper then think I will cook up a batch of ale. Temps look good for fermentation for the next week. Will be back when the wort is finished cooking.

That was a Good loaf of bread.
Made with some whole wheat flour that comes from India. A little heavy, but very tasty indeed.

An area of heavy weather has been lurking just S/E of here for 3 days.
Today we can hear the distant Rumbles and it's overcast and dark.
Could use some proper rain to top the cisterns right up.
It will probably get here just as we are leaving to go into the City this evening.....
