I remember watching this guy when I was a kid.
He passed away quite a while ago I believe.
He was into cool stuff.
Nothing better than my Mom’s cooking. I swear to the maker it’s so double damn good.
Had this on Saturday:
BBQ short-ribs, homemade cole slaw, roasted vegetables, and an awesome lentil salad.
It just doesn’t get any better.
Got seven bags of red mulch tonight. Like to lay it down nice and thick so it lasts all Summer well into Fall. Nice to switch from that black crap. I’m sick of black mulch. Stuff looks like mud after while. Deck is all ready for Summer now. I’m looking forward to sitting back there with a shortwave radio and good cigar at my side. Nothing like a cigar. I’m serious. A good cigar makes for a very enjoyable evening. A beer may work, too. But I’ve cut back on alcohol. It doesn’t exactly keep the weight off. A beer now and then won’t hurt, though.
I’ll post a pic of the deck later because now, I just don’t feel like it. Not to mention, it’s dark out now, too.
That is all.
There’s nothing like a good pressure washer. Yesterday, while getting our deck ready for the Summer, our neighbor said that our deck could use a cleaning with a pressure washer. Actually, he’s been saying that for years. Yesterday was the first time I took his advice and I am damn glad I did.
He was nice to lend us his pressure washer. Very neighborly fellow. He rocks, actually. He’ll give you the shirt off his back. Damn straight he will. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer guy to live next door to.
Also, couldn’t believe the dirt and moldy crap that came off that deck. It’s nice to know the deck itself is made of wood.
On a negative note, our gas grill is dead. It’s about 8 years old and it’s had it. Looked for parts, they don’t make them anymore. Of course. That’s to get people to buy new grills. I refuse to pay the $400.00 entry fee for a Weber, even though they do come with a 25 year warranty. It’s a lot of money for a grill.
That’s all for now.
Stumbled upon this a few days ago. Watch these two guys make thermite welding look so incredibly easy.
Even with all the advanced technological toys we have at our disposal, there are still many things that can only be done through manual, hard work.
Cool stuff it is.
Pork chops rubbed with minced garlic, cooked in the electric skillet on high at first to get a good sear. Sliced up some fresh mushrooms, added some thyme and rosemary. Let it simmer up some to meld the flavors. Made a quick gravy. Mashed potatoes and green beans on the side.
All equates to double damn good if you ask me.
Go to heaven for the climate and hell for the company. —
