Blast From The Past

 Hope y'all don't mind another post.  But this is a post I couldn't let slide by.
 Want to thankfor following the site below,

Learning to be a Gearhead or Motorhead in 1958.... 

 Now when I went to this site, two items caught my attention. The first was the McCulloch Kart Promo (with Don Knotts). Always good to see Don. And then about 3/4 of the way down is a picture of what was once the Kettering Brothers Husky Service Station. That building sure would make for a nice home. 2 bays and plenty of room to park.
 I enjoyed the photos and the memories this brought back. I hope you do also.

Sunday, Miss., And Crawfish

Bright sunny day today. Started out in the 60s and should top out around 77 or 78.
 Will be going to the Crawfish Music Festival today. Well, actually, I'll be going to the Crawfish Cookoff, which is part of the festival. With a 12 dollar tasting ticket, you get the opportunity to taste all of the teams recipes. This ought to fill me up pretty good.

 All that's needed now is the corn and potatoes. Usually they are thrown into the boil with the bait, I meant delicacy.
 To tell the truth, I grew up in Fla. We fished with shrimp and we ate shrimp. Only after I moved to Miss. did I hear of eating crawfish. They also fish with them, but they remove the claw so that they cant fight the fish. Poor defenseless bait.
 Did I tell you they taste good?
 About like any other seafood from the same family. The differences in the taste or the differences in the seasonings they boil them in. You can flavor them to taste anyway you want. Just don't forget to purge them before you start, so that they clean themselves out.
 Well it's about time to go. Will try to catch the crawfish races too. So exciting. (sarcasm). Next thing you know, they'll make leashes for them to sell as designer pets.
So long for now.

Changes As Life Goes On

 Well it's time for another round of looney thoughts and putting them out there. Where-ever  that may be.
I say loony thoughts because there are so many out there.  Don't take it personally. There not my followers.
 Been trying to keep up with this and follow others as much as possible. The new interface on blogger helps in the reading side, but I don't like it as much on the publishing side. Like they said about the Face Book changes, people will get use to them and will like them, given time.
 Face Book is changing over to what they call Time-Line. It's a mess (imo). Can't find posts that  I post to others' walls. It's bound to run off a few of the folks. Someone posted a workaround to keep the old look, and I tried it and it seems to be working so far. Why can't people leave well enough alone and just work out the bugs.
 Well, I have added the Daily Puppy to my sidebar. One more reason to visit this place daily.  Still, just trying to figure out what I'm doing and how to work out the bugs.
 Had my first week off. Boy, Howdy. What a change. Spent much of the week listing all that needs to be done around here. List a mile long.
 Got the yards mowed, and now they are ready to be mowed again. There are times I wish I had concreted the yards and painted them green. A Green Revolution!
  Well got to get back to it. See if I can figure out the truck.
Take care everyone.

A lot of us grew up with him. Some of us are still growing up.
He will be missed
RIP Dick.

Life Everchanging

 Well, I've got just two more days at work. I did give two weeks notice and have continued to work overtime to help them out. My back has been acting up, I can't continue to work at the level I like, and I'm tired of taking pain pills on a daily basis.

 Gonna fix up the house and garage so when the MIL decides to leave us, we can move to Tenn. or Tn. for the younger crowd out there.  Looking to find around 3-10 acres to settle in on. Somewhere around Knoxville. Don't know which side of the city has better property values. Any one out there know the place?

Now for the monthly link. A Chrysler training video for your viewing pleasure.

Happy Easter

Was wanting to do a post about the over commercialization of the Easter holiday. Thought I'd try to find a clip about Linus and his thoughts on Easter.
Instead, I found this. Pretty much sums it all up.

Bunnie Picnic and other TV Specials 

He has risen.
It's pretty much all there is to say.
