I've never seen one here, so I don't know what the story is, but personally feel we have too much traffic and being on one would be very unsafe.

Totally agree, even though we could have had any "Demo unit" we wanted where we live I have never thought they were safe, so we never had one and will not, but the Feds think so and so do local politicians.

Probably all we aging baby-boomers, lobbying to get needs and wants met.

We have seen golf carts in small towns for a long time....very easy for running to the gas station for the paper or other small item.

I don't look to ever own one.

Sunday dinner.....

I remember Doug's Mom making homemade beef and noodles by the enormous painful, quantities large enough to feed the entire extended family, including big, strapping young men who worked hog farms for a living....those boys could eat.

She cooked a couple of beef roasts in her pressure cooker and, of course, made homemade noodles and gravy.

We would arrive and they would be made, cut, and drying on the backs of her kitchen chairs, waiting to be cooked.

I had never eaten beef and noodles before hers...I was a town girl, my Mother...an excellent cook..was Confederate Aristocracy, and it was just not something she ever made.

I eventually started making this for Doug and my adult kids on occasional Sundays, and then the grands, tho I cheat....beef in the crockpot, cream of mushroom soup, and Kluski noodles from a bag.

Today....with lots of baby portobello mushrooms. Tho the middle of May, it feels more fall than Spring, so comfort food is on the menu. Yum.

Doug would say.. "Mother never put mushrooms in hers."


My 23andMe kit was in the mailbox when I got home yesterday....going to spit in the tube and send it off tomorrow.

My son's testing showed a significant percentage of Ashkenazi Jew.

That would be from maternal great-great grandparents, who came from Germany to New Orleans in the 1830's...my great grandfather being the only child of 14 to live to procreate.

I will be waiting (im)patiently for test results to come back.

Puttering and tidying today, nothing exciting going on.

I never got my tabby pavers made last week, but am planning on starting them in the next couple of days.

A Different Life II

My mom's specialty was Goulash, with egg noodles. Her mom was the Sauerbraten with red cabbage and fried potatoes.

Grandma's shallow aluminum potato sauté pan, with brass handles, at one point, was stolen back from the Russian troops that invaded and looted her home in Vienna, Austria during the war.

Grandma was that attached to that simple pan. She could have been killed for that move....

I love those kinds of stories....I hope one of you grandchildren now has that pan.

My great-great-great grandparents home in southern MS was raided by Grierson and his men during the Civil War, them taking everything edible and of value they could find and haul away.

They didn't find the gold pieces great-Grandma had hidden in the sideboard, tho, which helped them get thru the war.

I was in that house for the first time last January....stood on original floor boards in the home completed in 1818, where my great grandmother and great-great grandfather were born.

An almost spiritual experience....history under my feet.

Actually, I think my mother still has that pan. It was from a very scary part of history. I still other have artifacts from that period.

Mom and grandma were in Vienna through some of the worst allied bombings of the city. She still has fast reactions to instantly take cover in response to sudden loud noises.

Mom was sent west, away from the invading Russian army, and met up with an American tank platoon, where her New Jersey accent got her safe passage. She worked as an interpreter for General Mark Clark for some time after the war.

Maggie,

Found a quite interesting book if you are looking for one.

God's Bankers by Gerald Posner. Google it.

I have been busy...gone from the house today for errands, a Dr.'s appointment, then the spring program at the grade school two of the grands attend.

Lily is having mama-withdrawal, and I haven't crocheted a stitch since sitting with Alice at her ballet lesson Satuday.

Tomorrow...many chores needing tended to, inside and outside.

A drawer in a dresser has completely fallen apart, going to see if I can figure out how to put it back together.

I have an electric screwdriver, a good hammer, and lots of nails.


Maggie

I have been at it this morning.

Repaired the dresser drawer, removing old screws, drilling new holes and replacing....done, me and the cordless screwdriver.

I am in love with the beach rock I put under my downspout on the north side a couple of weeks ago.

Picked up a couple of more bags and put them under the remaining, undressed downspouts around the little house. Four of beach rock, one of Edisto shells...what's not to love.

They are beautiful against the dark of the house. and look especially lovely after it rains. They make me smile, just to look at them.

Doubled the size of my Lily of the Valley bed this morning, too....me, digging and turning ground with the shovel. Figured this was the time to do it, before they begin to spread and I have gotten a really-big-beach-rock-border in place.

I dug up a very large chunk of brick in the yard this morning, about 8" long....on this piece of land which I understood my house was the first to be built on.

Looks to have been made in a mold, so I'm going to do some research and see if I can figure out its origins.

I'm waiting for my yard guys to say "what's with all the rock, Maggie?"

I have It because I like the way it looks, and that's all the reason I need.

Hard labor is done for today.


Maggie

Maggie,

You have been AT it.

Very busy spring beautification and refresh going on at your place. The river rocks, as we call them, look very nice around the downspouts. It's a good sense of accomplishment after a hard day's work outside.


Our weather has turned also, but as our seasons are inverted, we finally had to turn the air on and close the windows. Anything over a 100 and my outside work is done for a couple of months. Will wander back out for a couple of hours every couple of weeks to cut the grass. Already miss the sounds of outside but that's the price for a nice winter.

I have River Rock, too, these are labeled beach rock, are larger than my River Rock, and I love their varied colors and different kinds of rock.

We are having a very cool and wet spring here, wet enough the farmers can't be in the fields, tho I noticed on my Iowa drive that crops are already coming up.

I had the AC on s couple of weeks ago, not so much for terrible heat but because the dreaded humidity had set in....I actually ran the furnace for awhile when I got home on Sunday, and we've had lows in the upper 30's.

I think I have largely been inspired for outdoor things because the weather has been so very hospitable. I won't do much outside in the heat, either.

I hope we don't pay for this with crazy heat this summer.


Maggie

So, this is the piece of brick I dug out of my side yard this morning.

It's a big sucker, IMO, and I'm intrigued as to its origin.

If you look at the side facing the camera, there is what seems to be a seam in the center of that side.....which is why I thought it had been made in a mold.

I can't find anything like it online....any thoughts, folks?
