General Discussion / Re: What did you do in the garden today ?
« on: November 17, 2018, 09:15:51 PM »
I've been looking at the garden & thinking about spring & what I intend to do. Downsizing has to be done , my tiller is 5' I'm thinking about a bed down the center of the garden with only a few things growing.

Thank ya'll, Teresa has written about our early years and it would really nice to have all the pictures set to music. Jewel knew how to put pictures on a CD, she did quite a lot doing Genealogy. We each carried a 35mm camera & had trigger fingers.

Happy Hour / found a memory in the travel trailer
« on: November 16, 2018, 06:11:19 PM »
Once a month on Friday morning Jewel & I would hook up the trailer and head to a pre planned destination. Often we saw another RV up ahead, Jewel keyed the mic, come in Blimp 1 , this is Little Jewel gotcha ears on. We were members in The CB travel club. Our handle was Big Mc and Little Jewel. We would all eat out together on Fri. night, have pot luck supper Sat. night with dominoes, poker and 42. Jewel was a poker player & I played dominoes neither of us cared for 42. We would hang our name plate on a post in front of the club president's trailer. Good fun and many good memories.

You have some really good pictures, I can remember the roar of the Falls as I looked at those.

Happy Hour / Birthday---Apology---celebration---friendship
« on: November 02, 2018, 09:29:18 AM »
Hello Rabbit (Donna) I have no excuse for just today seeing a message you sent me back in August however, it is fitting for today. This is Jewel's Birthday with a Cracker Barrell celebration planned with her sister Virginia and Brother Jim. Yours and the friendships we have on The Bayou Gardener has been a tremendous needed help. I plan to have a scaled down garden this next year and listen again to Donald's "Less is More" approach. Here is Jewel with that terrific smile she has always had even from then until now. She has always loved dogs, I'm the old dog in one of these. Thank you for the message , sorry for my delayed response.--------Monroe

I wish every American could visit this great place. After all it does belong to all of us. Thank you for being there and sharing what you see and feel with us. When we were there scaffolding was around the Lincoln Memorial for cleaning and repairs.

That is a true place to get lost in your own thought. Did you see Robert Kennedy's grave marked by a small white cross? Jewel & I found the grave of our local hero Audie Murphy.  We know how you felt being in their midst.

Thanks Rabbit, that is also a very spoiled cat she often sleeps between us, the other night I got up on one elbo leaned over for the last of the day kiss, "Jewel was that you or the cat I just kissed"? I was looking for at least a chuckle but all stayed quite. In a minute "MEOW"---she got me I laughed

Last night we heard two good hours of the old country classics .The Malpass Brothers & band brought many memories back not with the song but also with the voice. ---Ernest Tubb--"Walking The Floor Over You"---Hank Locklin--"Send Me The Pillow You Dream On"---One of the best George Jones--"He Stopped Loving Her Today"----It was a great night , Jewel came into our office area & I took her picture before we left.

We had a 50' row of peanuts, here's Jewel showing off a couple of vines. I like to cure them out the old fashion way. I dedicate this peanut shock to my friend Ben.

I had to clean the carb on this one last year , it did surprise me it stared first pull. It is nice to sit one in the FEL & have power anywhere around the place. Hope the other one starts right up.

This generator started on first pull, hadn't been started since last fall. Used the electric pole saw for a load & trimmed a tree. I have another one of these & will trim another tree tomorrow with it. Hope they won't have to be started again till next fall

Happy Hour / Re: SIS
« on: October 08, 2018, 09:13:21 AM »
Thank ya'll, we were all good teens in the 50s, we all ran around together. The only time she ever got mad at me was telling a date what might happen if he got out of line. She let me know she didn't need any help. I've probably showed these two pictures in the past. There were about three more that wasn't with us that day.

Happy Hour / SIS
« on: October 07, 2018, 08:48:02 PM »
I've been giving  Sis a hard time about turning 80 next week. We have coffee together every morning between 5 & 5:30. Notice the red hair our youngest sister also has red hair. Dad had a niece about the same age as he with red hair. We were the only ones kin to each in this part of the country with red hair. Our grandparents came to this part of the country in late 1800 from Missouri. In 1986 the McAnally's , through genealogy, had a Missouri get together. We met our Scotch Irish relatives many looked like us red hair, blue eyes and freckles. A couple of fellows would pass for my brother. Bless their heart

By the time I got to the car I had cooled down and sorry I lost my temper , I should have just told him I didn't own a car. That would have ben the truth.

Happy Hour / "These Are Times That Try Men's Souls"----here's why
« on: October 07, 2018, 11:14:12 AM »
It hasn't been too long ago that I bought a can of WD40 at TSC , went to pay for it and the man at the register asked my age. I wanted to know why, it was on the computer to ask he said. I went into Auto Zone a couple of days ago to get a 7mm box end wrench. I had left Jewel in the car, running with the AC on. Found the wrench stood in line while the counter man was trying to explain something over the phone. Finally  my turn I had money in hand while he punched around on the computer, what's your phone number, without asking why so there wouldn't be any delay I told him then he wanted to know the make and model of the car. I can blame my reaction for being old, being stressed , in a hurry or whatever but I lost my temper, just before I told him where to stick the 7mm wrench I told him to take my damn money so I could go.
