Things in the Road

Piddlin’ outside the NO Princess Palace

It is just sorta the way it goes down here in the Puckerbrush. The weather has been admirable; after all it is my favorite time of the year. A few mornings down into the high 40’s and then quick to warm up to 80 or better. Still shorts and sandals weather for sure.

Sloppy Joes / Mac and Cheese

It is a curious wonder to me about the nature of folks.  I try my damnedest to steer clear of politics and religion here on the blog;  any one of ya’s that has been readin’ me for awhile knows I am of a decidedly conservative bent.  No big revelation there.  Every once in awhile My Other Bro Tittlemouse will drop in and visit for a bit and when it comes to politics, religion and the over all sorry state of general going’s on; you ain’t gonna shut him up…….. and so it was with my previous post.  Guarantee ya I
