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.
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
