Glad the yard work is done.

Last night I was watching the dog walkers and one came over to me and asked if I had been rude to his wife earlier in the day.

"If your wife was standing and yakking with another woman standing in the middle of the road on the blind part of the curve I told her to have her children teach her how to cross the street safely," I said. "If you want to call that rude then go ahead."

His eyebrows raised.

"I wasn't going very fast so I had no problem avoiding the pair of them but if yet another lead footed preoccupied mom roar by not paying attention as seems to be the norm around here the two of them could have easily been hit." I continued. "Want a beer?"

"I'll take a rain check on the beer," he said. "So that was all that happened?"

"Yup. That's what happened," I replied. 

"Thanks," he said, shook the dog's leash and they walked off.

I hope he went home and had his kids teach their mother how to cross the street but that's a lot to ask for.

A day of yardwork

Mowing, raking and general gardening.

It's 1600 and I am done for the day.

I had to make a quick Lowe's run earlier and as I rounded a corner I saw a pair of mothers standing in the middle of the road yakking.

It angered me because I had to maneuver a bit to get around them and it was an unsafe place to just be standing. I rolled down the window and told the pair of them they ought to have their kids teach them a few things about crossing the street. One got a bit snotty. The other cut her off and said I was right and I drove off. Let them settle it.

Had a little time last evening and

baked a batch of brownies in the Dutch oven. They came out pretty good.

I started playing with the Dutch oven a few weeks back and tried using someone else's heating styles with fair luck but this time I fell back on my instincts and everything came out almost perfect.

Seems like a lot of my life. 

Every time I fall back on instincts everything works out.

I am busy today but have a little time while

an elk steak cooks.

It's an I need a good breakfast day and I am going to be running all over hell today.

A dinner sized elk steak and a couple of over easy eggs ought to do the trick as I have the elk defrosted. Otherwise it would have been biscuits and gravy.

It got chilly

I got to sit in the garage looking out last night as a cold front rolled in.

The evening weather is interesting to watch.

%%%%%%%%%%%%
Yesterday I made a pot of coffee and drank about half of it and put the rest in the 'fridge. I nuked it this morning and it was reasonably drinkable which surprised me.

I know that it would have been horrible if I had left it out at room temperature all day.

I am thawing out a piece of elk today as I have not had much game recently and elk sounds pretty good. Although it is a steak I think I will cut it up and make something out of it.

All roads lead to Rome except for me.

Sometimes I think all roads lead to the Foreign Legion.

This is one of those days when one wishes he had spent 25 years in the Legion, taken his pension and moved to Tahiti.
