I remember the Oscar Meyer song!
My folks never bought them though. I remember us having the old fashioned deli franks that you bought a string of and wrapped in white butcher paper. Those were a treat!
Had plenty of bologna and Spam as a kid. I kinda outgrew it though and never buy it.

However, the power was out night before last and the only thing thawed was the cheap Bar S hot dogs I give to the dogs as a goodie. I built a fire in the fire pit outside(that I had just finished building that afternoon!), roasted hot dogs and drank a few beers until the power came back on about 11pm.


Anyhow, Happy Friday!
What a week...
Hubby was supposed to be home tonight. But both rear ends went out on the Peterbilt in Iowa yesterday afternoon. He has a friend there who got him set up with a repair shop there and let him borrow a pickup to run to Omaha to pick up the new rear ends instead of waiting until Monday to be shipped and delivered. If all goes well he will be out of there tomorrow to be on the west coast to deliver first part of the week. Thank the Lord for friends!

Tomorrow I am going to visit with a cutting horse trainer up the road from me looking for part time help. Itll just be a couple days a week which would be perfect so I can take care of our business and get my horses rode too.
I was asked last week if I wanted on the day work list for a big ranch around here but I don't have the horsepower. Stilts I basically retired from those long days. I just want to show him lightly and keep him fit. It seems once horses are completely retired they go down hill pretty fast. PigPen is at the trainers and the Dragon is going to the breeding barn. After putting Hooey down I'm having a hard time wanting to go back to that work. It jerked the John Wayne out of me...lol

On happier note, cousin sent me some pics of a cowbred filly that would work for a barrel horse. I'm just waiting until next week when he can send videos. I guess she's got wheels, smokes everything out in the pasture with her. So fingers crossed even though she was a little younger than I wanted. I was hoping to get a horse I could start now. This filly wouldn't be old enough until next Spring.


Almost forgot.. @CopperLove you can definitely plant your tomatoes in 5 gallon buckets! That's how I plant mine. I live in cold country so I start mine early in the house, then transplant to the buckets. I have a bunch of buckets with holes I drilled for drainage and I use fiber glass hot fence poles to tie them up on.
I do NOT have a green thumb and even I can manage to grow tomatoes!

Just for fun, burning hot dogs...
And horses this morning while waiting for the farrier. Mare backed up to the tree and scratching her bum..lol

I use to like spam fritters - spam dipped in a batter and deep fried, other than that can't say I was over keen. Haven't had it in years.

Knightrider - I would love to participate in the quail hunt and try my English Pointer on it. He never stops hunting and is always finding game birds and rabbits.

Kewpalace, that creek so sure flowing fast, luckily there are few places with anything like that other than a couple of fords but even after heavy rain they are nothing much. When I was in Dorset there was much flooding in the Vale after heavy rain. I have some pictures on my old computer and one time the water was well over the railings of the foot bridge.

Use to love riding through the floods, horses enjoyed it too. They would slam their feet down to create a big splash and send water over the other horses and riders.

Then there was the time I was taking the sheep to slaughter but I have written about that in my journal so won't repeat it.

@tinyliny I wish we were in Seattle now. You could come ride Moonshine! She's stubborn and annoying, but she loves trails...

Well, dinner so far for me has been a doughnut since I ended up having a friendly conversation with a neighbor for a long time as soon as I pulled in my driveway, and then grabbed the first thing in front of my face when I came through the door.

@AnitaAnne I think itís spelled bologna on the pack (I, too, remember the Oscar Mayer song) but Iíll sometimes type baloney if Iím mimicking how the word sounds and I also pulled directly from aubie lol I didn't realize until today that other do the same thing or maybe just spell it that way.

@COWCHICK77 Thanks for letting me know! I have hope now. I tried bell peppers last year with buckets with holes drilled in the bottom. I read somewhere you could put 2 plants in a 5 gallon bucketÖ I think someone lied. Or Iím just very bad with plants - which I am. Hopefully the tomatoes will survive my endeavors.

@ACinATX I worried after Iíd shut my computer off and left for the barn that the first line of my reply to you may not have come off as I meant it, which is why I came back to apologize before dinnerÖ I absolutely didnít mean the ďI obviously would never say it out loud because they're not my kidsĒ thing to mean that you should not have written it, only that Iíve had similar thoughts but would never say it in front of the parents and can only safely admit it here. HF is a safe place to admit someone elseís children, even though you love them, may be a bit feral, right? (And Iím kind of glad you pointed it so I donít feel quite so mean or inept for not knowing how to deal with them 100% of the time.)

Iím sure you understood the way I meant it, but Iím clearly in a mood to worry about things Iíve said since part of my first post was worrying Iíd said the wrong thing to the kid.

@CopperLove I'm sure that kid will recover, LOL, he sounds pretty tough.

I didn't actually see your reply, so I went back and read it. No worries. Maybe I shouldn't have stated my opinion anyways. I just do worry about how kids like this will grow up. It's kind of cool, though, like you guys have a little bit of a cultural exchange going on.

@ACinATX Phew I'm glad. Nah, I'm sure homeschooling in general has it's pros and cons but their situation is pretty isolated, it's definitely a bit different than some other homeschooling families I've encountered. I had a friend my senior year of highschool who'd always been homeschooled but wanted to do her senior year in a public school so she wouldn't miss that experience. She was a very well-rounded and mature individual, but she had always had lots of interaction with peers of her age group because of their church and activities related to it, and being enrolled from a young age in gymnastics and other activities that placed her with children and adults from other families.

These kids don't really get that. They've been able to do some cool traveling because of their mom's work, which is more than I can say for myself (Until I was 18 years old with a school group, I'd never been any farther than across state borders into Tennessee and Ohio.) But being able to travel, and go to the store, and go out to eat at restaurants, etc. still isn't the same as consistently interacting with other kids outside your family. At the end of the day, I know they love their kids and they're just trying to do what they think is best for them like any other loving family. Hopefully if they hit a learning curve as they grow older and start moving out into the "real world" more, it won't be insurmountable.

But, yeah, it is certainly an interesting exchange going on sometimes And even though they're a bit wild and sometimes odd, on most days it does feel nice that someone is always excited to see me.

A lot of kids are going up a bit on the wild side. They don't have tables to sit at, get babysit by phones and tablets, and in general do most anything they want...so long as it doesn't bother the parents who are playing video games, are on their phone or tablet


Dinner turned out to be cheese ravioli and asparagus both covered in an alfredo sauce. Too rich but I ate it anyway!


Now feel like I have to roll around biting at my belly
