Local Legend

Here is a "local legend" story that I had published a few years ago in The Kentucky Explorer Magazine.
I have a heck of a time getting the pictures to show up in the right sequence!

Weekend at the Cabin

Got an early start last Friday to get down to the cabin with the mutts. Kim went to Louisville to assist daughter to "organize" her Summer/Winter clothes.
Picked up some chicken and pork chops to fry for snacking on this week. This time I used " good ole fashioned LARD". did make it taste better. I followed the advise of a friend for making gravy...and it turned out great! I made plenty, so the mutts got some poured over their dry dogfood.
It was first day of Deer Hunting with Primitive Weapons. Couple of the hunters got lucky. I'm not a hunter myself, but, support those that do. Mutts had a good time chasing away three deer off the field in front of the cabin.
Got to catch up on my NetFlix DVDs, bunch of reading, slept late, and took a couple of naps. Life can be just too hard to handle at times!
Did get to get out Friday and Saturday to shoot the pictures shown on the previous video clip.

Nosey Rabbit

*%$#@ ....

Well, I've been trying for about 5 hours to download a small video clip of a little bit of a magic show that I did for my great nieces and nephew last Thanksgiving. Don't know why it won't take. Guess I'll have to try it again in the future.

Southern Geniology

Two good ol' southern boys in a trailer park were sitting around
talking one afternoon over a cold beer after getting off work at their
local Nissan plant. After a while the 1st guy says to the 2nd, "If'n I
was to sneak over to your trailer Saturday & make love to your wife
while you was off huntin' and she got pregnant and had a baby, would
that make us kin?"

The 2nd guy crooked his head sideways for a minute, scratched his head,
and squinted his eyes thinking real hard about the question. Finally,
he says, "Well, I don't know about kin, but it would make us even."

Kentucky Waterfalls

Back a few years ago, while I got around a little better, I used to travel up into Eastern Kentucky along the backroads and seek out waterfalls.
Here's a few that I shot back then.

Getting a little "nippy" here in the SOUTH.

I made my "escape to the cabin" early Friday night, and found the air starting to get a little nippy around sundown. So, after unloading the truck, fixing a gourmet supper of Vienna Sausages on crackers, and a can of Campbell's Veg-Beef soup,(washed down with bourbon and coke)... I made a small fire in the woodstove. It got nice and toasty quickly....thanks to all of the insulation. That night, I entertained myself with two Netflix movies, and crashed out around midnight. The mutts seemed to enjoy the warmth of the bed as they kept trying to crowd me out of it all night.
Woke up around 7:30, and though it was comforable inside, it was 39 degrees out on the porch.
I grabbed the camera and drove around the farm to snap a few pictures. There was a little fog on the pond which I just couldn't quite capture like I wanted. I did find some Goldenrod (Kentucky's State Flower) which is dreaded by many due to it's pollen, and a couple of other shots.
It has been awhile since I got in the mood to do some decent cooking, so, I planned a little ahead and decided that I'd fry up some chicken legs and some pork chops to eat on for next week.
So, for a "late brunch" I enjoyed two chicken legs and one pork chop. Though they were good, they just weren't as good as Mom and Dad used to make. I used Crisco....they used to use lard. Think I'll try that the next time.
Got to do a little reading, had two visitors, and got in about an hour nap before heading back home Saturday evening.
