I DO NOT TAKE WARNINGS FROM LITTLE OLD LADIES THAT LIVE IN TRAILER PARKS LIGHTLY......

OR WARNINGS FROM RUI,
EITHER!



The warning that Rui emailed us about choosing colors comes to us a wee bit late as we have been slapping color on the walls for a couple days now & the chair rail is up!
(Yes, Bob, a chair rail, it is a restaurant dining-room and this is necessary).
I need to do close-ups of the trim moulding as it was the rough-hewn lumber that origally clad the walls when Mark bought the place, I do believe it is black locust wood, an acacia. It is at least one hundred and fifty years old & very hard!


& 
Y'all know me and my love for old hard wood....

So, what do you think?
Mind you, I still have several tricks up my knickers....
This is merely the back-drop...




AND...
I know that is naughty of me but I just wanted to give you all a taste of the crafting of my wall sconces......


Would Any Like to Hazard a Guess?

Thanks, Rui for the fire!





So Another Little Piece of Me Dies......

RIP
My Love....

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell Gets Probed...

How's it Feel?

Hey Bob!

How Big Was That Probe???

You are lucky...
I would have used something much larger to find out that you have a putrid heart & a shriveled brain....


Give thanks to your god that your rapist was not me, asshole.


Love to the sisters...

There's Five More Acres in the Lower Forty that I've Got to Plow.....

Isn't it a shame about Billy-Joe?

Anyhow...



Pass the biscuits, 
Please.

We Need Some Help From Our Female Voyers, Please....

QUESTION:
Is it even possible for one of the female gender to ever comprehend philaous?
That is to say, the altruistic love that sometimes happens between men that will lead them to consider themselves to be closer than brothers...?


Estrogen Be Damned!


Is it possible?








I would like to hear from the men too (and the women), but really girls, I want to know if you have ever come across true brotherhood in your romantic endeavors, and if so, did you try to destroy brotherhood for  your own personal gain?
And, how did that work out for you?


The Sisterhood Forever!


Except for my brothers....

How Did This Get There???


Look Whar Good Lookin's Been a'Cookin' ...

A triple layer quadruple strawberry threat cake.

A rocky road, fat, hot brownie mess, a la mode...

The old man,  bought this Coke button some time ago for four hundred dollars.
It's the real thing! At least four feet in diameter, and although it is no longer in its' natural condition, it has been restored quite nicely. It will look great on the side of the diner!  When I am ready to photograph it from that perspective you will all understand....

Also it is ever-so-much cooler because Coke is from Georgia....
Atlanta, that is.
About two hours downhill, in the valley.


I did get ready to make stuffed cabbages in the morning....


And I just want to show how beautiful cabbage leaves can be in their infinite variety!

A feast of greens!

The Problem with Evangelical Christians.....

Apart from the fact that they really don't know Jesus...
They may have met him, I can't really say.
They do seem not to know the scriptures as a whole. If they did, they would know who gets tossed into the lake of fire first...
Do you?
The answer is quite as simple as Jesus was/is: 
The fearful.


Faith vs. Fear?

Sometimes I think that we should invoke Levitical law, because that would be the end of evangelicals, catholics & the like...


To me it is really quite linear;


The definition of religion is: Man seeking God.


The definition of true christianity is: God seeking man.


ie.


Jesus died on the cross to end religion...


Search over.


Love love,
love me,
love your brother,
love you enemy x 70,
love yourself,
love love loves loves lovingly.




I forgive all & everyone,
I hope that I am forgiven...




I LOVE YOU.

Pray with me for those that do not understand.

We Watched FOXNEWS For Twenty Minutes Tonight....

We believe that we now have a third hernia from the laughter...
YES!
We busted a gut.

Slaw Delivery, Waiting to Happen....

It seems that someone presumed that a victory party would be taking place tonight....
Then I go to deliver the cole slaw, hush puppies & tar-tar sauce, and what do I find?
The address in question is still up for grabs!
Much to my dismay....
OH, these two, (2).

I swear, everything I know, I'll take to my grave....
BUT
Cole slaw & hushpuppies have a shelf life....
Tar-tar Sauce is Forever,
So, I'm not so worried, in this crowd tar-tar sauce is as much of a necessity as fabreze or red lipstick....

Please,
Someone,
Let me know who wins so I can deliver the appropriate accompaniments, (insert correct French word here, of which I pronounce better than even those of the tongue: HERE), to the appropriate address, so that I might go back to my true love in life; Pulling Pork.

Never really cared for tar-tar sauce.....

Crazy Weather Huh?

Today on the Blue Ridge:

 The Daffodils are in bloom....
Along with some crocus, phlox, dandelions & the pansies, of course!
Got a little more work done...

The bluebirds have come back for lunch, which is really quite lovely.

The Hole in the Wall - Update...

We painted yesterday and had to stop because of nightfall.  Couldn't paint today as it was A Rainy Night in Georgia...

We'll  be back up on the ladder again tomorrow to finish the  pinnacle, windows and fascia....

BEWARE:
OLD POOFTER
ON
LADDER

(Sequoia grove, Creme Brulee & White) 


We saved the original old weathered clap-board to trim out the upstairs.
Is it not just lovely?

Perhaps we'll pickle it, haven't quite decided...


PS: Just can't wait to do the post about the wall sconces I'm making!
