~ A New Tomato Seedling ~
~ Icy Morning ~ Sunny Afternoon ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Is that a New Tomato Plant? ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Wednesday Morning, 6 a.m. Sitting at the Computer, some cool seeping in from the Window
What's the Temp out there anyway? Lemmee look... Ahhhh, 17 Degrees, Brrrr again, and only going to 39
So, what we gonna do today? Not a clue so far, checked the newly planted Tomato Seeds though
And a tiny speck, is that a Seed or a new Plant? I guess we will see Tomorrow...

Then, 7:15 a.m. What's that out front? lipped on the Window Cam, One of the Girls from upstairs
Scraping Ice off her Windshield, Oh well, will have to wait a while for my Lottos on this cold Morning


And then... 8 a.m. Bright Sun comes flooding in my Window, and shining on my Windshield across the Street
So I'll have some Cake and TV and then later, off to the Fast Stop to try my luck again

~ Bright Sun to Melt the Ice on my Mercedes ~

10:30 a.m. Sun shining bright but still cold, headed across the street to the Mercedes
And the Windshield was dry and the Sun had warmed up the interior for my trip to the Fast Stop
Away I went, up the Hill, around the corner, up the Hill and down the hill and repeat that a few times
Then Hiway 45 and turn left and down the Hill again to the Fast stop and Hola Navru

Some chat, traded in my Lotto Winners, bought $30 more possibles and back to el Ranchito Pequeno
Then scratched off exactly no Winners at all and a loss of $30, and nutz to that, now what?

Cruising on into the Afternoon, playing with Screen Shots for my November Blog Video
And chatting with Sigi in Germany on Messenger, he said he had just driven a big Dumper Truck
I asked him for the Site .url of his Company, got a Screen shot of a big Dumper Truck there
Then I put a Photo of Sigi in the Drivers Seat with my 'Paint.net' Photo Program
Now he can demo the Truck on my Blog Web Page too

~ Sigi Wulle Driving the big Dumper? ~

ON into the afternoon and again nothing of Interest going on, a boring Day for the most part
I did take a late peek at the newly planted Tomatoes and that speck is a new Tomato plant
Now a full Crop of three Plants is going in that Garden

~ Hah! It -Is- a new Tomato Seedling ~

And Garden Two with those Two big Tomato Plants, every other Day telling me to Add Water
What are they doing with all that Water, well growing tall looks like

~ I am Thirsty ~ Gimme a Drink! ~

On to closing time and another long old Movie on Amazon Prime, kind of Interesting
And some reheated Enchiladas from the last Batch to nibble during the Movie
~ Enchiladas for Closing Time Wednesday ~

And sip sip on the lasy Glass of Wine of the Day and Goodnight to the First Half of November

~ Wednesday ~ Half Way through the Month ~



~ Tuesday, November 13, 2018 ~
~ Cold Morning ~ Sunny Afternoon ~
~ Pickled a few Jalapeņo Peppers ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ New Blooms already on the new Tomato Plants ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

What's for Tuesday? I did a lot of Drivel on Monday in spite of not doing much in that Cold
And again, nothing planned for Tuesday but let's see what happens, maybe win a bigger Lotto
What's the Weather? OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! BRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! 13 Degrees at 7 a.m. Not good for me!
Well it must be that damm Global Warming, wish thay would postpone that for about 20 Years
Maybe it will warm up later...? Nope... Says Sunny but only going to 34 Degrees

And so, out in my Kitchen Garden I saw my new Tomato Plants were leaning some... get the rack...
So I snapped on the rack, then saw the Plants were beginning to Bloom, really tiny ones

~ Lots of Tomatoes on the Way? ~

Well now, them there Halapenyo Peppers... Navru picked the first one and ate it...
Then I picked the other two largest on the Plant and pickled them
Now the 4th one getting as large as the Two I pickled, and then Two more dinky ones on another Plant
Were not getting any larger after a couple weeks, so I picked them

~ Bumper Jalapeņo Harvest for Tuesday ~

Then heated up the Pickle Juice and added the fresh picked ones
To the Jar with the Two already pickled ones

~ Wow, Five Jalapeņo Pickles Now ~

And off in the bright Sunshine to the Fast Stop to chase my elusive Fortune
Some chat with Navru, cashed in my $50 Winner, bought $25 more Tickets, headed back
Then scratched off Three losers, phooey again... Then a $15 and then a $25 Winner... HOORAY!
$25 Profit Monday and $15 for Tuesday, better Days, but not Quite like I wish...

So, never being satisfied, back to the Price Chopper to try to do better
Cashed in my $40 Win, bought $25 more, only won back $15, But still more than I had in my Pocket to start

OK, 1:30 p.m. My bizzy Day is done, on to coasting down to the Finish, and I am BORED
Nothing else of note to mention, just slipped through another TV Afternoon and Evening
And Donny went to bed at 8 p.m. Buenos Noches...

~ Tuesday ~ Oh Well, Could have been Better ~



~ Monday, November 12, 2018 ~
~ A Cold Snowy Day ~
~ And a Nice Lotto Win ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


~ Veteran's Day 2018 ~ Me... In the Korean War 1954 ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Lots of Leaves and Blooms ~ Where are the Tomatoes? ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Slept late again, ain't it loverly! got up at 6:40 a.m. after a pretty good night
Got my Juice and Coffee, attacked Sundays Blog, finished and posted, now what?
Checked the Weather.. WHAT! Snow again! I ain't ready for more of that... Yet, if ever
Took a peek on the Window Web Cam, not so bad, just a powdering so far, maybe it will quit

~ Powdery Snow 8 a.m. Monday ~

What's the Temp anyway? 27 Degrees at 8 a.m. topping at 34 later, now baby, that's COLD outside
Well nothing planned for outside, would like to take a run for more loser Lottos
After I put the Coffee on I got another Photo of the Tomato Plants in Garden Two in the Kitchen
Wow! They are getting Bushy, and been blooming little blooms for a Month but see NO Tomatoes at all
Well anyway, I have the Foliage to enjoy, lots of greenery in my happy Kitchen now

OK, 8:15 a.m. had my Coffee, worked my Crossword, getting bored already, and just what is my problem?
I can't just sit back and enjoy the Day, I need something fun and interesting to do
And I don't mean Housework, that's always available and can wait, so what NOW?
Well now, I was checking some of my later Blogs yesterday and found several missing Photos
So excuse me now, while I chase those down and replace them...

9 a.m. Well now, that didn't take long, Five Blog Pages corrected, with one missing Video
And 7 missing Photos all located and uploaded and all is well... (until I find more)

And 'Time Marches On' on that cold snowy Day and the Snow increases, ain't goin nowhere soon
Now what can I come up with to pass this long Day of Weather imprisonment?

~ More Snow at 10 a.m. Monday ~

On with the Day... slowly... Another piece of that Pumpkin 'Cake' for a late Breakfast
A call from Pat to 'See how you're doin'... Then some catch up Kitchen Garden Photos
Lots of Pepper Plants and growing Tall, too bad we don't have warm Temps and Sun Outside
What do we do when they reach the top of the Shelves where they are now?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ One Jalapeņo ~ Three Sweet Peppers ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ One Jalapeņo ~ Two Sweet Pappers ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Sweet Papper ~ Jalapeņo Pepper ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And then... WHAT'S THAT NOISE! The Deck is falling down! Run for cover!
Oh no, forget it, the Guy is just blowing Snow and Leaves off the Deck above

~ WHAT'S THAT NOISE! ~

Well then, as you can see in the Video the street had cleared some but still COLD out there
Wondering if I could make it up the Hill then, I did need some Wine and Lottos, (well -wanted- Lottos)
Put on my heavy Jacket, headed across the Street, knocked some Snow off the Mercedes
Started up, backed out carefully, headed up the hill, did a little spinning but away we went
Got a Jug of Sangria and a pack of Batteries, (I had a dead Mouse) traded in $25 of Lottos bought $25 More
Headed Home, lugged tht Jug back across the Street and into the Fridge, then worked my Lottos
Scratched off 4 losers, phooey, then last my Favorite Crossword and got a nice $50 Win, best for the Month

~ Best Win of the Month (so far) ~

That was "My Day' for Monday, on to Dinner, Wine, TV News, Movies and Music, and let's Hit the Hay

~ Bye Bye Snowy Monday ~

~ Vereran's Day 2018 ~
~ And a Quiet Day at Home ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


~ Veteran's Day 2018 ~ Me... In the Korean War 1954 ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ First Seeds no Go ~ Trying Again ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Woke up at 4:15 a.m. for a Nature Call, should I just get up for the Day?
Nah, still tired, back to Bed until 6:40 a.m. That will make the long cold day shorter
First thing, someone left a bunch of Dishes in the Sink... And the Dishwasher was full
So unload the Dishwasher, put the clean dishes away, reload the Washer, now ain't that neat!

Then the Aero Gardens, one says 'Add Water' so I added water, didn't I just do that yesterday?
Then Garden One, Two of the new Tomatoes were up, no sign of any in the Third Pod and so...
Why wait? I put three more tiny Seeds in that Pod and now hope they can catch up... If they pop up

Then Coffee and Juice and back to the Computer for the Morning routine all over again
Time trickled on to 8 a.m. Nice looking Sunshine brightening the Window but still cold
29 Degrees at 8 a.m. the high projected to be around 45, well that's almost bearable

On to the long Day, I got an email from Walgreens saying my Prescription was ready... HUH!
My Doctor is not supposed to send my renewal scripts there, they go to Humana online
So first stop was there to tell them no go, next I'll have to set my Doctor straight about that
Then next door to the Price Chopper, had $15 worth of Winners to trade, did that and back home

On the way up I noticed all the Flags out in the Shopping Center, what's the Deal?
What did I miss, well this Morning I saw the fine print on my Calendar saying Veteran's Day
So I had to add that Photo up there showing how I fought in the Korean War

On the way back I got another Photo of the Ace Hardware construction, coming along nicely
I saw somewhere that it is supposed to open later this Month

~ Ace Hardware ~ Getting Closer to Opening Day ~

And that was about all worth writing Home about the rest of the Day, just routine
Hey Hey! Now Monday on the Way!

~ Goodbye Weekend ~

~ Another Record Low Temp ~
~ Enchiladas to warm things Up ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Baby... It ~IS~ Cold Outside! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Second Tomato Seedling in Garden Two ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Babee... it's COLD Outside, 13 Degrees and only heading to a Top of 38 and that ain't comfy
And chilly in the Office Room, had to kick up the Thermo a trifle, cold air seeping from the Window
Time slipping up close to 8 a.m. Computer stuff done, new Blog started and what's for the Day?
The eternal question at first, hopefully something of interest will pop up to do

No ideas by 8:45 a.m. and BORING! Had another piece of that Pumpkin Bread with Cool Whip
About half of that gone now, then I'll bake another Pumpkin Pie, still have some Cookies

Well I made some Chili Friday, thought I would make some Enchiladas today
Off to the Price Chopper to get some supplies, Tortillas and Sauce and Cheese, Si Si
Traded in $15 of Winner Lottos, added a Twenty and got 7 Tickets, go for broke!
Got my Tortilla stuff and headed Home, then scratched off $40 in Winners, HAH! $5 Profit

I postponed my Enchiladas to head down to the Fast Stop to trade in $20 worth of my Winners
And traded in a $2 Free Coupon for a Show me Cash 'Easy Match, and got $20 more Scratchers
Back again to scratch off $15 this time, Lost $5 of my Winnings, Oh well

Then started on my Enchiladas. got them constructed and into the Oven and then a Glass of Vino
And watched an old James Bond Movie while I waited for my Enchiladas to Bake...

~ Cheese and Onion Enchiladas ~

Again, that was pretty much most of the Day, My Enchiladas out of the Oven to cool and back to the TV
Later, dished up a couple Enchiladas. into the M/W for a Minute and back to the TV to try them
Pretty tasty, par for the course, finished my Dinner and my Entertainment and down goes the Curtain

~ Sunday on the Horizon ~

~ A Bit of Snow out There ~
~ And it is Cold! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Snow at 6 p.m. Thursday ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Snow at 6 a.m. Friday ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A little better Night Thursday, and up at my usual 5 a.m. on Friday... FRIDAY ALREADY!
Time sure flies when yer having fun... Am I having fun? Well some now and then
Not much fun at the Medical Center, setting up another Specialist appointment for possible Surgery
I looked up that procedure online and it doesn't look like much fun in that one... Oh well

So, Mike said we might get a couple Inches of Snow, doesn't look like we got more than an Inch if that much
And no accumulation on the Street, well I have no plans for going anywhere anyway

So, 6 a.m. another Photo of the Snow we got overnight, not much but the Street looks slick
Got a Photo, then back to the Computer for the rest of my diddling and then another look at 8 a.m.
The trees in the Gully looked so purdy I had to get another Photo or two

~ Snow on the Trees in the Gully at 8 a.m. ~

And then the Snow on my little Spruce Trees and looking like Christmas already
Well that's only about a month and a half away now, what's next? Thanksgiving in a couple Weeks?

~ Snow on my Christmas Trees ~

Pat needed her Air Compressor back, I ordered a new one, waiting now for the UPS Man to bring it
Handy to have one on hand until I can get that leaky Blazer Tire fixed, my Friend Bob didn't succeed at it
Wish he would get here so I can run a couple errands, the street looks passable now

Another look at my Kitchen Plants, more Blooms on the Tomato Plants but still no Tomatoes
Two pods of Tomato Seeds from AeroGrow in that bed, I have six of my own seeded Pods working
Three up and growing in Garden Three and Three more in Garden One just starting now

~ Two Tomato Plants in there Blooming Now ~

And then, I had some of that roasted Pork Shoulder left, let's make some Chili, out to la Cocina for that
Ground up a few Pieces and into the Pot,. defrosted some of my ground Tomatoes, into another Pot
Chopped up some Onion, into the Pot with the Tomatoes, then the Pork in with the Tomatoes and Onions
In with some Salt, Pepper and other Spices and let it simmer away... Wah Lah"... Chili picante!

Creeping on toward 3 p.m. Here comes the big Brown Truck, gave me my Package, opened and checked it out
Very nice and even has a nice little carrying Bag, have to give it a test when it warms up a bit

~ New Air Compressor for my leaking Tire ~

OK, enough of this drivel, on to TV and Dinner and Dreams, See Ya!

~ Bye Bye Friday ~



~ Thursday, November 08, 2018 ~
~ Another Unnecessary Doctor Day ~
~ And it is Cold Out There! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ One of my Homes... Away from Home ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Will head over to that Complex about 8:30 a.m. Today, what for? Just an unneeded 'follow up' I think
They never fix anything there, just send me to some Specialist to do the hard work
All I get there is a BP Check, and a Needle Poke and some Chat and then it is off somewhere else<
Well I did talk the Doc out of an 'Efudex' Prescription last time, then I ordered it from Canada

Up at 4 a.m. again, just can't get used to the new Time Change yet, my internal Clock is still on DST
Makes my Day too long and I have to go back to Bed too early so I can wake up early again
Anyway... I am 'woke up' now and all my Morning Computer stuff done at 6 a.m. and is it snowing yet?
Last Night Mike said it would Snow Today, but in the Evening, Good... I need to get up that Hill early
Took a peek out the Door, looks OK but Babeee! it is COLD out there!

All ready to go at 8 a.m. but enough time to take another Peek at my new Tomato Plant in Garden One
And today you can see it is a Plant. doing just great on Day Two out in the open

~ Tomato Seedling Growing on Day Two ~

And 8:30 a.m. out into that brrrrr Cold to head to the Doctor for his "follow up" exam
Quite a long wait and finally some Chat about this and that, questions and answers and whatever
Finally decided most everything was under control except that Aortic Aneurism they found
The Doctor thought that I should see a Specialist about that, and advised a referral
So, whatever all over again, let the Specialist decide whether to leave it be or go after it
At least he said it would be an Endoscopic procedure if they did operate, Oh well, what's next?

Back home at 11 a.m. Time for Breakfast, I don't eat before seeing the Doc, most always want a Blood Sample
This time I had another slice of the Pumpkin Bread and it moved up a notch in taste, now better than the Cookies
Is it better after aging a couple Days or from the dollop of Cool Whip I dropped on top?
Now I am rating the Pie and Bread as a Tie, and the Cookies in second place... yowsuh!

~ Pumpkin Bread (cake) Getting Better! ~

Nothing much more to complain about for Thursday, just the usual, peeped out front about 3 p.m.
Real light misty Snow was falling steadily, and kept up all Afternoon into the Evening
Was melting at it hit the Pavement, no accumulation, then Tom was out there salting the Street

Then a little more Vino, more TV, a little Dinner and Good Night Irene... Good Night

~ Thursday ~

~ A Cold, Slow, Not Much Happening Day ~
~ More old Blog ReHab ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ First Tomato Seedling up on the 4th Day ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Wednesday, halfway through the Working Week and the last Day of thr First Week in November
Yes Indeedy, Time is flying for me, like they say it does for us old fogies
But it sure does drag at times until I find something to get immersed in, like this present moment
Everything done in my opening Day's routine on the Computer finished and what's next?

Well Babee... it's COLD outside, temp says 33 Degrees at 7:30 a.m. and only going to 46... Brrrrrrrrrr
I finished updating all my old Blog Pages, still checking my later Blogs and finding errors
Mostly missing Photos that I didn't catch before uploading them and usually easy to fix

Well now, the Election that is Missing my Vote, I just didn't feel like standing in line for an hour or more
But I see that it went the way I was hoping, a Republican Senator for Missouri and the Pubs kept the Senate
And that's the last of my Political comment for awhile, I usually keep quiet about my preferances

Well one more comment? We do not live in a 'Democracy' here exactly, it is a 'Republic'
Or you might bend a little and call it a 'Representative Democracy' which comes closer to what we have
Remember the words "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands"

On to finish out the Morning and then a Trip down the Hill for more Lottos at the Fast Stop
Traded in a $5 Winner, added a $20 Bill and got $25 more possibles and only one $5 Winner showed up
Back at the Ranchito to finish out a slow Day with this and that and nothing of interest to brag about
Just Computer stuff, then Election result talks on TV and the usual Afternoon wind down

Ho Hum, into the Winter Doldrums now, main events... trying to find something of interest to occupy my Day

~ Wednesday ~ Blah ~ Let's try Thursday ~



~ Tuesday, November 06, 2018 ~
~ Election Day ~ I Vote Republican ~
~ More Pumpkin Pie! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Voting Day Again ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Tuesday Morning already, well seemed like Monday lasted two days, that Time Change messed me up
Got up way too early on Sunday... and Monday Morning too, made for TWO 'too long' Days for me

So what for Today, Election Day, should I head down the Hill and stand in Line?
What's the Weather anyway, Sunny at 8 a.m. looks good... Temp 38, only going to 52, that's a bit cool
Well I don't talk Politics much on my Blogs but I might as well go and try to keep them Demos out
I don't like Trump all that much but I sure don't want them Dimmercrats running the Country

And so... Off to the Fast Stop first to chat with Navru and Customers and get my $20 Worth of Lottos
Back Home to scratch off only one dinky $5 Ticket, Phooey and then some!
And then, off to the Church to Vote, got to Main Street and LOOK AT THAT CROWD!
Traffic backed up both ways and I knew there would be a terrific Line of Voters inside
No place anywhere to park that I could see, just turned around and headed back Home

Next, my new AT&T DirecTV Bill, went up a bunch even after selecting a smaller Package
So I got on the Phone to see if they had given me the right one, and the nice Lady said yes
Then I said I wanted to stay with AT&T but didn't know if I could at that price
So she said she would see what she could do, and found something quick, changed me to a 'Promo' package
And it looks like I will be paying for everything I want at a lower price than it was before the latest raise!
I have been with AT&T in all it's forms since 1962, looks like they want me to stay

Well, now 11 a.m. is it time for Breakfast yet? Might as well be late than never
A slice of Pie, only one slice left, make some Pumpkin Cookies maybe? Yeah that's good Pie!

~ Let's have another Piece of Pumpkin Pie! ~

~ Click to Play the Coffee Song ~ Let's Have another Cup of Coffee ~

Do you see what it says on the Record there? "Tomemos Otra Taza de Cafe" Know what that means

The time rolled around to try those Pumpkin Cookies, found a Recipe and printed it out
It looked easy enough but didn't turn out so easy, not near as easy as Pumpkin Pie, no way
Anyway I waded through the sticky Process and then into the Oven at 1:15 p.m.
I hope they are worth the effort, I think this will be my last struggle making them

~ Pumpkin Cookies out of the Oven to Cool ~

Then the Day's activities adjourned and on to the Evening wind down, on to Wine and TV
When the Pumpkin Cookies cooled I tried one and it passed my Taste Test, different but Tasty
My rating on the Three tries now, The Pie was the best, the Cookies come in Second and the Bread is Last
But they are all good and they will all be consumed and enjoyed and... I have more Pumpkin... What's next?

And on through the Evening and then here comes Pat, I had the Window Cam on and saw her come up the Walk
I reached for the Door from my chair, opened it just as she knocked and in she came
She had a low tire on her Truck and came to get her Air Compressor I have been using
I gave her some of my Pumpkin Bread and Cookies, then out to the Blazer to get the Compressor
And up the Hill to Home she went... Nice short Visit... More later perhaps?

Then I finished out My Day... watching the Election Results and hoping for the Best
Looked like some of my People were doing Ok, finally gave up and off to beddie Bye

~ Tuesday ~ Election Day ~ Pumpkin Cookie Day ~



~ Monday, November 05, 2018 ~
~ No Time Change Again ~ But Woke up an Hour Early Again ~
~ Longest Boring Day of the Year ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ A slice of Pumpkin Bread to Sample ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Monday, Monday, what we gonna do on Monday? Ran out of old Blog Pages to re-write
Well, I can go through my latest Blogs looking for boo-boos... Always find something to correct
Not that anyone reads my old Blogs, not many read my newer ones, so there too, just for me

42 to 53 Degrees and Rain for the Day, how miserable... Well could be worse, not Snowing yet
But now they are saying Snow for Thursday, oh well, it is November ain't it?

And Time slipped on, BORING! Did my Morning stuff, had my shower and shave, some Breakfast
Tried another piece of the Pumpkin Bread, well OK but nothing to brag about, the Pie was better
Then started on some old Blogs, finding very few mistakes and the Clocks clicked on
And now only 10:15 a.m. What a long boring Morning and still raining out there
I would like to get some Lottos but I know that Hill is too slick for the Mercedes to climb
And the Blazer needs Brakes and a new gas line and I don't drive it much at all now

Time slipped on into the Afternoon, the Rain stopped and the Street dried some
Got in the Mercedes and made it up the Hill and off to the Price Chopper, traded in $20 worth of Winners
Then splurged on $40 worth of Lottos, might as well do Two Days worth while I had the money
Headed back, poured a glass of Vino, worked those 8 Lottos for exactly NOTHING!

Then on through another Blah late Afternoon and Evening.. Time was crawling all Day
One more exciting event... (hah)... My Electronic Clock had not reset itself to the New Time
Instructions say depends on it's location, so I took it off the Wall, set it on a Table
And within the next Hour, I saw it take off and keep the Hands moving for 11 Hours and Presto!
So now we are all set until Spring on that one, hung it back on the Wall

Then TV, Dinner and closed down the operation for another Day and what a long long Day it was

~ Long, Long, Long Boring Monday ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Well I knew that Daylight Savings Time was ending but this time it caught me by Surprize
I woke up a bit early at 4:30 a.m. Put on the Coffee, went to the Computer and it said 3:45 a.m.!
HUH? What's broke now? then I remembered, that dagnabbed Time Change, leave the doggone Clocks alone!

Anyway my Bod is still on regular time so it will take a few Days to get adapted
And on with another exciting Day! When was the last time I had one anyway?

First thing after putting on the Coffee, get a new Photo of the Kitchen Gardens, changed again
Three more Peppers now in Pots, new Tomatoes planted where the Peppers were and what's next?
Now I have Nine Pepper Plants in Pots and Eight (possible) Tomato Plants in the AeroGardens
Two tall Plants, Three just now getting some size and three more just Planted Saturday

6:30 a.m. Ho Hum... Yesterday at this time it was 7:30, the time is crawling this Morning
I don't like this Time Change and never will, now some are talking of eliminating it though, wish they would
Worked about an Hour on more old Pages, now bored with that, this IS gonna be a long long Day

HAH! Hadn't checked on the Weather yet, so take a peek... 44 now at 6:30 a.m. topping at 53 and that's not a high Top
And Cloudy, not ready for another Cloudy Day, where is my Bright Spot for Sunday anyhow?

Well, time for another piece of Pie and some non-news, see what else Trump has messed up
Now that is some GOOD Punkin Pie there, yowser... And boring Political News, enuff of that
Not much else to do, except reset a few more Clocks, guess I'll do that
OK, got most of them set, One sets itself, hasn't done that yet, it's taking it's own sweet Time
And put on that Cloudy Day to head to the Price Chopper for Cherry Craisins and Walnuts
Going to make that Pumpkin Bread (Cake) when I get back, also need a stop at Walgreens
Got my Stuff at Price Chopper then at Walgreens and then back to mi Cocina to bake

Had the Recipe all printed out in my Cabinet, baked one, maybe two before this try
Followed their Instructions and into the Pan and into the Oven and back to the Computer

Well now, been working on all those web pages for how long? And then at 1:46 p.m Sunday, all done!
I mean... I think a good shot at it... is done, there is always another error that pops up
But don't let Sigi know that I admitted that I make a error, as he thinks I an perfect.. HAH!

OK, Pumpkin Bread out of the Oven to cool, makes a purdy Pitcher don't it?
Well, I'll report on it's quality after I sample it, maybe at TV time later on to finish out the Evening

~ Pumpkin Bread ready to Sample ~

And back to the Computer one more time to finish re-writes on all the old Blog pages from Number 1 to 176
That's when I changed the names from 'Page' to 'Blog'.. Now I have 'Page 01' to 'Page 176'
And my Blogs from 'Blog 177' to 'Blog 228' so far anyway, this one is Blog 288 ya know

Well that was sure enough of that, I can go back again when I get bored and check my 'Blog' pages
On to TV and Dinner time, then I tried my new Pumpkin Bread for dessert, and a bit disappointed
I had to bake it longer than what the Recipe said to get the Center done, that made the crust a bit dry
But then that was the 'end' piece, the center slices might be better

Anyway a busy and fun Day to a lesser degree but better than average, Ho Hum, try Monday next

~ Come on Monday ~ I am Ready! ~



~ Saturday, November 03, 2018 ~
~ More Blog Page Editing ~
~ Some Kitchen Gardening ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ A Piece of Pumpkin Pie for Breakfast ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I think it is Saturday, lemmee look, yeah I guess it is... 43 Degrees at 6 a.m. and On No!
Light Rain it says, took a peek, yeah all wet out there but not pouring at the moment
Saying heading to 61 Degrees and partly Sunny, that sounds a bit better

Morning stuff done, what to do until Breakfast and Shower? Update some Pages of course
Started on that, worked away and got Seven more Pages edited by 8 a.m. Making great progress

I had another Cup of Coffee and I had another Piece of Pie... Where did I hear that before?
And got a Shower and headed to the Fast Stop to search for the End of the Rainbow, it wasn't there
I told Navru to hurry up and get me some big winners or I would go somewhere else
Then he locked me up in a big Box until I began to cry and he let me out to go home amd scratch my Losers

~ In the Lockup at the Fast Stop ~

So, Home to work $20 worth of Losers and $10 worth of Winners, where's the profit there?
Noon-Thirty already and nothing much to do, well, there's that Tire on the Blazer that went Flat again
Not all the way flat but close, looks like Bob didn't get it fixed last time
I still have Pat's Air Compressor, need to hook it up again and fill up that Tire and out we go

~ That Leaky Tire getting Help Again ~

Back in to while away the Aternoon, out to the Kitchen for a Glass of Vino and...
Those Peppers in Garden One are getting BIG now, do we have any Pots available?
Out front to check, yes, get rid of a few Plants now fading away and use those in the Kirchen
And so, out of the AeroGarden with the Pepper Plants and into Pots and onto the Shelf

~ Peppers from the AeroGarden ~ To Pots on the Shelf ~

And then. planted new Tomato Seeds in Garden One to replace the relocated Peppers
Nothing stays the same around here very long (does it?)

~ New Tomato Seeds in Garden One ~

Now Peppers on this Shelf in the Kitchen and also more on the Shelves below
And what are we going to do when they get too tall for the Shelves? we shall then see

~ New Pepper Pot Arrangement on the Shelf ~ (for Now) ~

Well that was enough puttering around for that Day, maybe more for Sunday?

~ What Tomorrow! ~ Let's Go See! ~

~ New Crop of Peppers getting BIG! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ New Tomato Plants beginning to Move a Bit ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Well now, that was sure one busy Day on Thursday, not the time I was waiting at the Endoscopy Center
But all the rest of the Day, heading there, then back, then the Fast Stop and then that Pumpkin
And some Blog and Video and old Blog Page Editing, kept at it most all Day

Well, what's the Weather for Friday? Hah! Same again except saying Partly Sunny, 46 to start only going to 54
Anyway nothing much planned and just going to start by Baking Pumpkin Pies, Two for Friday
Need a couple things at the store, have everything else here and Pumpkin Pie is easy to do
The prep isn't so easy but to make the Pie, just dump everything into the Bowl, Stir, then into the Crust
And then into the Oven and Wah Lah! Let them cool a bit, then one for Pat and One for Me

Anyway, back to my Morning, Juice and Coffee, Finish the Computer stuff, post my Blog, start on this one
Not hungry for Breakfast, started out the Door for some shopping and Whoops, raining out there
And the Mercedes still doesn't like that wet slippery Hill when that River is running in the Middle of it
So, back in and started working on updating old pages again and stayed with it until the Sun came up! LOOKEE THERE!

OK, ready to go? still a lot of wet on the street, and what about those Apples on the Table
Been there a few Days, let's make some Apple Sauce... So, peeled, cored, chunked and into the Processor
Then the pulp into the Pan and a little Cinnamon and Allspice and a little simmering... VOILA! We got Applesauce!

10:30 a.m. Time to head to the Fast stop for Chat and Lottos, got lots of Chat and a few Lottos
Then headed up the Hill to the Price Chopper, needed some Condensed Milk, Cool-Whip and Pie Crusts

Back at the Ranchito to work NO WINNERS, and then what, well... put a couple Crusts out to thaw
And get out a big Bowl and start mixing up some Punkin for Pie, yes Ma'am...

You know how to make Punkin Pie? Buy a Can of Libby's Pumpkin and the Recipe is on the Can
But I have a Printed out Copy I can use because I like to use fresh Pumpkin, but it's more trouble
So I mixed away, some of this, a little of that and a lot of that and into the Oven at Noon-Fifteen

~ Pumpkin Pie 2018 ~ Not my Best Looking ~

And out of the Oven about 1:15 p.m. to cool, not my best looking Pumpkin Pie, can't match that 'red hue' of Libby's 'Famous"
But fresh Pumpkin looks and tastes different than the Canned variety, so I'll see how this one tastes at TV Time

On into the Afternoon and I found I needed a couple more Items at the Price Chopper
And the Pie had cooled some and I wanted to take one to Patricia, so loaded up and headed up the Hill
Parked in the Drive, she came out to meet me and the Pie and a pack of Cool-Whip I added
Thank you and see ya later and on to the Price Chopper, got my Goodies an headed back for the final hours of the Day

Set out some Dinner to thaw, poured un Vaso de Vino and then to on the TV session

~ What Tomorrow! ~ Let's Go See! ~

~ Welcome To November ~ When is Turkey Day? ~
~ And IBM Pay Day is Today! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ A Gift from Pat ~ And Parkville Nature Sanctuary ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Well Now... Welcome to a New Day and a New Month and new 'Adventures' (if I may call them that)
The first one this Morning, giving Patricia a ride to the 'Midwest Women's Healthcare Specialists'
Just across the Parking Lot from the Surgery Building where I had my Finger Operation just Three Weeks ago
And then waiting about Two hours or so to give her a ride home after the procedure

Well this can be trying to make up for the Two Times she waited for me at the NKC Hospital for Colonostomys
And all the Visits she made when I had my Colon Surgery and the last Time there in Oakwood for Surgery

Looks like we have Yesterday's Weather for the Trip, Cloudy and 46 Degrees at 6 a.m.
And climbing all the way to 59 Degrees later for a not too high Top Temp

Morning stuff all done, ready to go, headed up the Hill to Pat's Estate at 7:55 a.m.
Pat got onboard at 8 a.m. and we headed North, left a bit too early, Got there 25 Minutes early
But not a very long wait, she was called into the Scope Room right at 8:45 a.m.
Then a wait for me in the outer Room until the Procedure was finished and earlier than I expected
Then called into a small conference Room when Pat came in from the Exam Room
Then a Talk with the Doctor and Nurse and then we headed out to the parking lot and reboarded the Mercedes

~ At the Endoscopy Center ~

Headed back to Parkville, detoured by the ATM, got a couple Twenties and headed down to the Fast Stop
Pat has been wanting to meet Navru, was introduced and they had a few pleasant Words
Got my Lottos, back up the Hill, on to Pats Mansion, opened the Garage and was then presented with my Gift
A gorgeous Big Pumpkin rescued from Ghost Story Night at the Sanctuary... Pumpkin Pie on the Way!

Then, back down the Hill from Pat's and back at el Ranchito Donaldo about 11:30, not a bad trip at all
Caught up the latest on my Blog and then... Out to the Kitchen to process that Pumpkin, I want some PIE!
I bet I can get Four Pies out of this one, but some Slicing, Deseeding, Peeling and Roasting first

Out to the Kitchen to start on the process and some heavy duty Slicing, hadn't done this for a few Years
Forgot how easy it was NOT... And also with that 'worked on' Finger too, ouch. not so easy
But I got it all sliced up and deseeded and on to Trays and into the Oven to Bake, then the Peel comes off easier

~ First Step on the way to Pumpkin Pie ~

Pumpkin baked One Hour in the Oven, done yet? Nope, next get that Peel off and then into the Food Processor
And then ready to make a Pie or Two. or Three, or Four, or store in the Freezer until Pie Time

~ Step Two on the way to Pumpkin Pie ~

OK, the Pumpkin Baked and Cooled off, time to Peel and Chop, and more Pumpkin there that I thought
Filled my largest Stainlees Bowl about a third full, WOW! That's gonna be a lot of Pies

~ Step Three ~ Pulp Processed and Ready for Pies ~

And then, get out the Freezer Boxes, measured them, each holds Two Cups, enough for one Pie
Fifteen Cups in that big Bowl, filled up Seven boxes, enough for Seven Pies, plus another Cup to use for whatever

~ Step Four ~ Ready to Store or make Pies ~

Ant that took me until 5:15 p.m. Tine for TV and think up something for Dinner
And then that was all she wrote for Thursday

~ SS Pay Day... Tomorrow! ~

~ October Leaving Today ~
~ Starting my November Blog Video ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Goodbye to the Month of October ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And so, finished my October Blog Photo Video and uploaded to Vimeo then watched on my TV
How about that? Looked pretty good, saw no mistakes on the first viewing but a little noise I didn't like
Not very noticible but ya know I am a nit picker... A tiny thump at the very beginning of the Sound Track
And then a slight rumble next, I think noise from outside when I was taking the start of the Video
So first thing, back to the Video Editor, the thump easy to see and remove, next the rumble was mixed into the Music
And I just replaced that Music Track over the original and all was well, set it to render again

So, it is the last Day of the Month and starting a new Blog Page tomorrow and a new Blog Video too
That sure keeps me busy when things get boring around here, adding Photos most every Day to the Video
So what's for the Day? A peek at the Weather... Been pretty much the same-o for the last few Days
Humm... And again today but cloudy and a little cooler, 47 to start, 58 later, Oh well

Morning Computer stuff done, I dived into that new Video, got the Intro done by 8 a.m. and all's well

~ Lettuce shades the Tomatoes ~ Now with lots of Gro-Light ~

Too much shade from the Lettuce on the Tomato Plants and so...
I harvested all of the Lettuce Crop in AeroGarden One

~ Lettuce Harvest for October ~

'Time Marches On'! Noon-Thirty already, where did the Morning go... into my Video Editor of course
I did stop for a minute of two for Breakfast... and a trip to the Minit Mart for Gas
Then down the Hill to waste $10 trying to win a Thousand, only won Two $5 Tickets

Then back to the Computer to play with Photos, Blogs and Videos and a new Web Page for my Video Blogs
Now you don't have to go to Vimeo to see them, they have their own Page, soon all 12 wil be on there

~ My Blog Photo Videos for 2018 ~ Click Here ~

Headed out front on a fairly nice Fall Day to do some unpotting, the Coleus and a few Others gone
And here comes Tom with his Blower to blow the Leaves off the Porch, I went back in until he was through
And back out to finish up most all that had given up for the Year, a few Blooms still here and there

~ Some of the Plants gone for the Season ~

And you could pull the Curtain down then, nothing else except Vino, TV and Dinner
Seems my Day ends somewhere around 2 to 4 p.m. and then it is all downhill to Bedtime
So that's all the drivel for Wednesday, let's head on to Thursday and Pay Day!

~ IBM Pay Day... Tomorrow! ~
