Another Scorch-y Friday

By: jitterymoose , 3:54 PM GMT on July 18, 2008

...and something bizarre is growing in the pots with my tomatoes. euuuwww. I scraped it out, but it looks like some kind of fungus or mold (mold??) growing in the Miracle Grow soil in the pot. The GOOD news is, I have one plant that finally decided to flower (even though it's still itty bitty). Maybe I'll get 1 tomato? I've never had such bad luck with these things....

I broke my toe. Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow. There. That's all the whining I'll do. It's my little toe on the left foot. I tripped when walking the dog, and yes, Katie "came to my rescue" -- meaning, I was on the ground in pain and she jumped on me "MOMMY! MOMMY! MOMMY! WHAT'S WRONG? WHAT? WHAT? WHAT? MOMMY! MOMMY! MOMMY! I'LL HELP, HELP, HELP!" You get the idea. What a hyper dog. :-) We really must have looked a sight.

Even with all that, I ended up going to Music in the Park, which was really nice until about the last song when she got political (sigh). It was even Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here," (and I sang along), but it's not really a war protest song -- especially if you listen to the whole album. :-) Okay, there's the line

Did they get you to trade
Your Heroes for Ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for the cool breeze?
Did they get you to trade
a walk-on part in a war
for a lead role in a cage?

dum, du-du-du dum (twang, twang) dum, du-du dum (twang, twang). Okay, I do like the song. :-)

It's almost the weekend, so we're going to do what every good Wy-omin'in should do -- go to Cheyenne's Frontier Days and walk (ow!) around. :-) It should be fun, although I'm torn among that, the Sweetwater rodeo in Rock Springs, or the Balloon Festival in Riverton (I think -- I keep hearing commercials for it, but I can't figure out if it's in Casper or Riverton...???). Should be good blog pictures by Monday.

Oh, and picked up Durango, CO.'s nearly-century-old (1918 -- so they must know their stuff) Honeyville Honey Co. for the JM website. That should be up and running by tomorrow. The honeystix were a hit last night, and they have this Chocolate Buzz honey fudge sauce that is TO DIE FOR. Samples at the Farmer's Market here on Tuesday!

Have a great day! JM

I LOVE Tom Lehrer! :-)

Why don't you come with me
and how happy we'll be
when we're
Poisoning Pigeons in the Park
And maybe we'll do in
a squirrel or two
As we Poison the Pigeons in the Park
:-)

and, since I'm out here now, I find myself singing (really, I do):

'Mid the sagebrush and the cactus
we'll watch the fellers practice
dropping bombs in the cool desert breeze
Yes, I'll soon make my appearance
(soon as I can get my clearance)
'cause the Wild West is where I want to be!

'Round the yuccas and the thistles
I'll watch the guided missiles
as the old FBI watches me
Yes, I'll soon make my appearance
(soon as I can get my clearance)
'cause the Wild West is where I want to be!

MLF Lullaby, Who's Next, and my other favorite We'll All Go Together When We Go!

Wow--I have to find that old song book. I used to do Tom Lehrer songs in college at the campus coffee house (for spending money) -- and I'm sad to say, some of those folks just didn't get it. :-)

Have a great day, Ron!
