Are so good. I've spent the last three hours with nutcracker in hand shelling several pounds of sweet Georgia pecans. It's tedious work. My right hand has had a good workout.

The market for shelled pecans in our region is $11.35 per pound. Remember, three hours of work.

I figure it took me ten minutes to eat about twenty-three dollars worth.

Ahh, so good.


Thanks & Welcome

To my surprise two nice ladies reached over and clicked my follower button and I thank and welcome you both.

The first is Peggy of Hidden Haven Homestead Too. She's a grandmother with two and half acres of land and raises various farm animals and a darn good writer...please, take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and run over and read. Give me a few minutes and I'll list her on my links. 

Then we have Sue. Sue is a very good friend of our very own sweet kymber.

My new friends, I promise to always answer your comments. It might take me a few hours, or days, perhaps even a week or two (the case lately) but I shall answer...count on it.

Again, thank you each very much, and welcome. You are now among friends.



By my friend, Mystic Mud. She must have it in for me...anyway, I'm supposed to answer five questions.

Here goes.

Question number one - If you could pick a super power, what would it be?

The ability to travel through time.

Question number two - If you could spend the day with someone (famous or not, still alive or not) who would it be?

Christ. Then again, he might whip my butt and send me home to try and live my life correctly the second time around. So, perhaps I should chose someone like Ernest Hemingway...we'd at least have Paris in common.

Question number three - have you ever won a contest, award, or prize.

Yes, many. I've won several in the martial arts. Two or three for other odd accomplishments, but my all time favorite was for my venison chili, a blue ribbon. Hey, it was two days of hard work.

Question number four - tell us something about yourself that we don't already know.

This is a tough one. I'm kinda private, believe it or not. Let's blank here. Okay, I'm a hopeless romantic. A very devoted friend when you've gained my trust.

Then we come to - I dare you, no double dog dare you, to take a picture of your desk where you keep your computer and post it without cleaning the desk first.

Well, Mystic, I've done so several times already. But, since I'm still at home, I have no desk. So, let's see if I can find one of the old ones. Stand by.

Here you have desk. Not cleaned. It's from a few months ago.

I wasn't requested to tag anyone, and I won't. Play if you like.
