@CopperLove , going to the bathroom outside is the norm for rural kids (#1 only though). I also never wore a shirt in the summer until I was in the 6th grade. LOL Never fear we knew the difference between things you could do at home and how you better act in public if you didn't want a swat on your rear.

@AnitaAnne , I remember that commercial but although I remember the song, I don't remember the particular commercial the @kewpalace posted.

Town was crazy today and even in our little rural community people are fear hoarding. Walmart was packed and had a bunch of empty shelves. They'd also marked a lot of stuff up even the cat & dog food I went in for. Jay-C (grocery store) wasn't quite as bad but their TP shelves were empty and only a few paper towels were left. Thankfully we didn't need any paper products. The restaurants were busy too. I had country fried steak, mashed potatoes & gravy and coleslaw.

R.I.P. JC 5/19/85 - 12/9/14. You made my life better.

I have sort of been busy enough to meet myself coming around the corner this week.

I cleaned five Purple Martin Houses this week because DH scoffed when I said I thought they would be home early this year. Guess who showed up Tuesday and guess who I called at work to say I you so, then hung up:).

Farrier was here last Friday, so the boys would be ready for the chiro this week. This is the second re-set we left Jokers back, corrective shoes off. Farrier is hopeful he wont need them at least until summer when the ground gets really hard, if he will need them at all.

Chiro was here Wednesday. Rusty needed his head adjusted:) All Joker needed was some minor tweaking on his backend a true miracle since this is the horse who re-fractured his sacrum one year ago this month.

No supper. Mid-afternoon lunch was a one person Stouffers lasagna.

Bologna - nupe but fried bologna is an art form/delicacy in Middle Tennessee. Every diner worth their salt claims to have the best fried bologna sandwiches in Tennessee:) Ive always seen it fried whole and then pop the center down when it bubbles up.

That sums me up for the week, unless I talk about the programs I record so I can watch them some other time. Kelly Clarskon, The Voice, The Masked Singer, American Idol, Curse of Oak Island, the original Magnum PI, lollol. They go really fast when one is able to fast forward thru commercials and the parts of the shows I dont like, lollol

I ended up going out for dinner with various friends who all happened to be in town.

Our town was busy. Lots of people out.

Then one of the women had cleaned her closet and the rest of us went through things over hot toddies. Nice evening.

I have a rocking chair that someone gave me. It needs to be taken apart, cleaned, re-glued and screwed, and re-finished. I don't need it, but it seems like someone who does always comes along at the right time.

After a few nice 50 & 60* days we're back to snow for another week. I'm always ready for spring before it's ready to be spring!

Husband brought home bologna for sandwiches last week so after reading this thread I did fry some with eggs. I just flip until the edges are brown. I don't smack it flat or let it split.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

@AnitaAnne - lol on the rolling around biting tummy bit!

I ended up giving my truck a quick wash after work and go out there this morning to hook up the trailer to go for a ride and there's a yellow dusting on it... here comes the pollen! That stuff the last few years has been crazy heavy.

For dinner I ended up with a cheese, tomato and mayo sandwich... yum! My bread turned out really good this week so will get some good use out of that.

I just don't think kids will have the table manners that they should, might not matter but I see a lot of them chewing with their mouth open, talking with a full mouth... ugh.

That field trials look fun! Good luck!

Last night was fried green tomatoes and shrimp on a toasted bun with OMG sauce. No ripe tomatoes unless shipped in so cardboard flavor, yeuch. Not worthy of a sandwich. Can't wait for summer tomatoes.

We have a manners course that the kids would benefit from. Teaches everything from how to tie your tie to what fork to use. How to act in public. Basically how to behave in polite society. Too many parents don't teach their kids manners of any sort.

Part of the curriculum I am teaching is family dynamics. Had to watch certain episodes of different family series. Brady Bunch, Full House, Liv&Maddie...

The Full House episode was the one the twins were out of control because the parents were not parenting. Too busy being their best buds and joining in on terrorizing the rest of the household because they didn't want to be like their parents.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

Bologna, sandwich meats, cheese slices, and bread were all sold out at the store the other day! Apparently we've already started a run!

Update on Aunt.

We did our usual Friday, hairdresser and then fish and chips. He youngest daughter was meant to be coming down today for the week but her g granddaughter, about 18 months is ill with a cold so they are in self quarantine Barb didn't want to risk anything though they are sure it's just a cold.

So, after I walked the dogs I stopped on my way home to put in her ears. Since she had a stroke a good two years ago she has little feeling in her fingers and can't do it herself.

She has had considerable pain in her left leg and went to see a specialist who gave her a cortisone injecting, after a couple of days it was easier but she went back because her groin was hurting her. She was told it was arthritis.

Whilst doing her hearing aids she said, "I don't know why my groin hurts so much."

Quick as a flash I replied, "Cut back on your sex life, it may make it easier.."

I had to wait several minutes for her to stop laughing. She slapped my arm and told me I was a good tonic for aches and pains.

I'll feed the dogs and pop up and mpnatter with her for an hour later this evening. She denies being lonely but I am sure she is on these dark dank evenings,

Our clocks don't alter until the last Sunday of the month.
