Frosty Glass and Flame Grilled

It's a little bit nipply here in Frog Pond Holler today. Jolene's windshield had a layer of frost that I was too lazy to scrape, so I grabbed the jug of yellow de-frosting stuff and slung some of it on the ice, then hit it with the wipers.

I never seem to get around to putting it in the wiper fluid thingie.

I'm still getting off at three on Tuesdays, even though I only go to the noggin doc once a month now, so yesterday I headed to Wally World after work to pick up some stuff I ordered and had shipped to the store. I needed to pick up some groceries too, we were out of everything, but by the time I crammed four 8 packs of Coke and a case of bottled water in the cart, plus the large package I picked up, I thought I was going to have to get a second cart to drag behind me.

Luckily it didn't come to that.

I'm still going to have to go back sometime this week to pick up the toaster oven I ordered. The one they had online was way cheaper than what was in the store, so I ordered it, using ebates then had it shipped to Wally World. I ended up with a pretty nifty deal that way.  I just wanted an el cheapo one for baking clay. I can use the regular oven, but when I leave my little creations out to cool, Ma sometimes thinks they're cookies and once she took the foil I use to keep the fumes from getting in the oven and used it to wrap a sandwich to put in the fridge.

So yeah. All artsy fartsy crafty things are being moved to the bedroom.

The Amazon surprised me with some chrome flame grille inserts for Jolene yesterday. I've told her how I used to dream of having my own truck when I was a kid and how I'd get my father's parts catalogs and pick out all sortsa chrome junk to put on it. That and the red velvet cake she made were the fixins for a mighty fine birthday.

I'm riding in style now.. Boy Howdy!


It's Humpday ya'll. Hump it like Bo and Luke Duke runnin' shine in Uncle Jesse's truck. Be sure and let out a Yee-Haw or six while you do it.

We'll talk again soon.

Later Taters!

Once I got a cortizone shot in the bottom of my foot. It hurt like h e double toothpicks and when the needle came out what sound of relief came from my mouth? Yee Haw, not ahhh,but Yee Haw. My doctor laughed at me and said that was a first for him.

Crap - I always miss good stuff when I'm not around and not reading. You and your ma - oh I DO believe there's a special place in heaven for you, the Amazon and her "can't be prideful" remark, the holler being a bit "nipply" and getting chrome parts for your truck! I'm guessing that means it was your birthday. Happy Birthday Mahala - a few - okay more than a few - days late!
Now that I'm around, where are you?
