Looking Back… Thinking Of Today

Happy Traum sent me this picture. Ian Buchanan, of course, is long dead… but in this picture he will be forever young. Without his mentoring I would not be the musician and man I am today. Thanks Ian.

I love my music and I love playing it for people… but I also love enjoying life here in the country when I’m not on the road. As for Morels… soak them over night, split them, bread them with egg and flour and cook them in butter. Yummy!

We’ve been getting a lot done and that’s good, because on any farm, there’s always a lot to do. I’ve got an old Toro Wheel Horse garden tractor… its about seventeen years old but I love it. It’s small compared to a real tractor but it weighs about seven hundred pounds. We were just putting up some new fence today and after it was done I thought I’d get a jump on the mowing. Saturday is mowing day and I’ve got about twelve acres to do. Of course I got the tractor stuck in the run off from an old spring, but the four wheeler pulled it out.

Yes folks… we’re building BLT’s with Challah… the way it was meant to be.

I’ve had many, many dogs over the years, but I think Maverick (the boxer/doodle) is literally the pick of the litter. He’s loving, obedient, and large so that when he barks when someone comes up the driveway, it’s a real attention getter!

I’ll be mowing and weed whacking all day tomorrow while Vanessa, izze and the gang from the Fur Peace Ranch clean up the two mile stretch of highway we adopted down here in Meigs County. You wouldn’t believe the stuff people through out of their windows but don’t get me started.

Nuff for now… early to bed and early to rise!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
