We watched the boring game and I didn't even like the commercials.  But we had great food.

Good Morning
More than half way through the Monday laundry. Still mild, 44F right now and even the big mound of snow in front of the shed is considerably smaller. Ditch and culvert look like a muddy raging river, though. Snow coming back on Wednesday, they say.
 
Chris went off to work today after a full week at home last week. Can finally clean without maneuvering around the big guy, LOL. So glad he is feeling better.
 
JJ, nice to hear Jack is still around the old place and doing her job catching rodents.
Holly, glad you had a good day. I didn't watch the game. First time in a long time, but I just didn't care one way or another. Would have preferred a Saints/Chiefs game. Instead, I spent the evening catching up on Gray's Anatomy.
 
UHK, you were the one who said he told you the goose was dying and the others were pecking her. I still believe he was late coming to her rescue. And BTW, "cows" are very seldom raised for beef. A cow is a female bovine who has had a calf. Before that she is a heifer. Heifers and cows are the more valuable animal, since they produce offspring. In the old days, when farmers kept a bull, one bull was enough to service 50 or more cows. Bulls can be aggressive and unpredictable.  Bull calves are expendable so usually neutered and raised for veal or beef. The term you want is steer, a neutered male. A steer left to grow to full size is called an ox.

Good morning BCers!
We had two glorious days of blue sky, sunshine, and 70 degree temps.
Cloudy and rain off and on today.  Temps in upper 60s.
Grandbirdies enjoyed some fresh air on the deck.

 

 
Some of SC's friends came over for birthday cake and ice cream on Saturday night. 

 
Badger,  Sorry no food porn pics.   Will try to remember to take some next time I get in full tilt
cooking mood.    
 
We did watch the super bowl last night.  Well, I did.  After eating a big bowl of chili SJ  
fell asleep during the first half of the game.  He woke up at half time and said, who won.  LOL     
Made a pot of chili and a fresh veggie tray.  There was still a good size bowl of mango salsa.
Which SC and her friend dug into and polished off with some taco chips.   
I had a craving for a rootbeer float.  Spotted some IBC rootbeer in the mini fridge earlier in the day. 
Gave in to the craving and made myself one.  Enjoyed the float more than the Super Bowl.  Yummy!
Combine that with a bowl of chili...rest of the evening was one big Burp!  Ha!
SC and her friend both left out around 7:30 pm.   Lots of hugs and thank you kisses from SC for Bday celebration
and presents.  She had only wanted money.  But we did get her couple of presents to open as well. 
A pair of tiny diamond double heart earrings.  Something she could always keep and remember that dad and mom
gave them to her on her 25th Bday.  The other present was a nice soft black sweater she can wear to work.  
Along with two different colored long sleeved T's to go under the sweater. 
She has more celebrations to come this week.  Bday luncheon at work.  Tickets to Wizard of Oz with BF.
Then a trip planned to Chattanooga, TN for Valentine's Day weekend with the BF.  Then the BF's 25th Bday
on Feb. 23rd.  So busy celebrating...SC probably won't be back home again until early March.  Going to miss her. 
But so happy she is embracing her new job and life in Nashville. 
 
Bernie,  You are a good soul.  So nice of you to help Andrea with her move.
 
C&C,  Hope the snow is melting for you.
 
SoSo,  Enjoy all that lovely fresh fruit available to you.  Yum!
I will be happy to transfer some of your beautiful pics to the BC.   
 
Well, back to chores for me.  Doing laundry.
Everyone have a blessed day.  Hugs

Saw the minimally invasive surgeon at UTSW this am and he was very impressed by my terrible echo.  He got my cardiologist to move my heart cath up to this Friday afternoon and then I will have the heart surgery on Tuesday! He predicts 1 day in ICU, 3 days in the hospital, and only 2 weeks off work.  No cracking the chest.  Yay!
 
Badger - cute picture of Raj the explorer - je je.
 
SC looks awful cute too. Wow. 25.

Think those fishes are listening to some Deep Purple, smoke on the water this morning... misty.

 
Very entertaining as the surfers awaited the waves.

UHK, you were the one who said he told you the goose was dying and the others were pecking her. I still believe he was late coming to her rescue. And BTW, "cows" are very seldom raised for beef. A cow is a female bovine who has had a calf. Before that she is a heifer. Heifers and cows are the more valuable animal, since they produce offspring. In the old days, when farmers kept a bull, one bull was enough to service 50 or more cows. Bulls can be aggressive and unpredictable.  Bull calves are expendable so usually neutered and raised for veal or beef. The term you want is steer, a neutered male. A steer left to grow to full size is called an ox.



I agree, he could/should have come to the rescue earlier. Perhaps more vigilance on his part would have been good. I've been pondering the poor goose today. Is this what happens in the wild. The weak are weeded out like this? Keep the herd strong? When most of us think of a farm, we think county fair with a petting zoo, myself included, despite having worked on a farm in my younger years. I'm content seeing that goose separate from his antagonists and placed in a nice soft hay pen to die in peace. If it were my goose, not showing any pain, I'd let it go to sleep and die natural. If it were showing pain..... I really do not like it (And I mean, I REALLY do not like doing it), but I have....

As far as terminology, I was using the generic term cow. What he has is, from your explanation, a steer and two heifers. He had another steer, which currently resides in his freezer. Seems I remember him telling me he has to get new ones every two years. Slaughter houses, for some reason, don't want to take them after two years (More opportunity for disease???). He pretty much has 3 or 4 at all times, just enough to ensure him some beef, even if he loses one or two. I'm not sure who gets the extra when they all survive. He tells me it is a loser to own a cow. Even in his position, where he grows hay, he can still buy beef cheaper at market, but he doesn't know what's in it. Up to that point, I was gonna see if I could hire him to raise a cow for me. Apparently, it is just hard to compete with the large beef companies and their mass production style setup. 

Lovin life,
Bob

Good evening.  10 and cloudy.  The fog and drizzle last evening made for a real mess on the roads today as the temps have been dropping since midnight with two rounds of snow on the way on top of the ice.  Tomorrow and late Wednesday into Thursday.  Was going to venture out but decided phooey as I watched SUVs slip slide around on the roadway all day.  Did some additional work on taxes, a few phone calls and organizing all the recent medical records.  
 
Crunchie, I am so happy that you've been approved for the procedure and are scheduled.  Just know we will all be thinking of you and sending prayers.   Hoping that your sweetie will keep us updated.
 
PJ, what a lovely weekend and great timing on the those top ten weather days.  Bet Thelma and Louise love being out in the fresh air.  
 
Cindy, hope you don't get that freezing precip before the snow arrives.   Will make for some interesting shoveling here.   
 
Bernie, nice of you to assist Andrea.  Glad she's got the heavy stuff covered.  Had to laugh at your kitty story.  
 
Twirls, hear ya on the game.  Oh well, sounds like you enjoyed your eats.
 
Enjoy your evening.  MB

Brother visited from Des Moines today, we took Mom out to lunch since it was 50 degrees and they haven't had too many outings due to the cold.  Funny thing is, she would rather stay at the Retirement Village than go out to eat...the food there is amazing.  Plus she doesn't want to miss out on any of the activities.  Hopefully, Crunch, your Dad will get there.  But my Mom's been there almost a year now, it took her awhile.  So happy to hear the good news about your surgery!  I'll bet you're relieved..
Bernie, is Andrea moving far?  You're so nice to help her out.
Nipper, congrats on the Pats!
Frank, always enjoy your posts! 
C&C, did not realize a bull could "service" so many~does he have a minimum per day?
PJ, Katie is such a beauty, lucky BF!
Bobski, it's so hard to put down any animal regardless.  
SoSo, keep those photos coming, we look forward to them!
Jamie, yes, I remember Shana saying she met you when she was with Holly.  She hasn't been to Mexico since 2012 due to many circumstances and a few bad choices.  But she's doing really well now and hopefully will be going soon! She's going to miss her sister horribly.  They're very close.
MB, another of Monica's favorite places is Salyulita.  One more going away party on Thursday and then I'll be a real hot mess :(
JJ, what a great boss!  Margaritas in her office is a bonus!
Badger, I think you've met everyone in the photo with all the girls, except the odd one out, Kayla.  She's my niece.  We all live in this area and spend a lot of time together.  Some of you may have seen my photos on FB of our "white trash Fridays"  (is it ok to say that or will I get banned?)  Haha, you never know.
Twirley, I know how you love the sunshine, hopefully the weather will start being better for you.  Are you maybe going to sneak in a trip down south this month?  You seem to do so well while in MX.
Hugs to you all, haven't seen  Susy or Maple Syrup on here since I started to post more often.  Hopefully they are doing well.  I enjoy seeing everyone's posts.

Good Morning
Great news to wake up to, Crunch! So happy for you!
 
MB, yeah, I hope we don't get it either, but the dreaded "wintry mix" is in our forecast for this evening, tomorrow and Thursday. Ice storms kind of freak me out. Went through a really bad one when I was maybe 13 or 14yo. Like 3 inches of ice. This was before Dad got a generator. 50 cows to milk with no power. I got sent to walk the field road to our nearest neighbors to ask if Jim, a good friend of Dad's, could come and help him. Scariest one mile ever. Tree were cracking under the weight of the ice, so loud and frightening in the dark. And nearby on the main road was a youth prison that had all that high chain link fencing; a power line had fallen on it and was arcing, sending up what looked like northern lights while it sizzled and cracked. Must have slipped and fallen on the ice 10 times. And then had to do the walk back. Power was out for 3 days, poor Dad's hands were so swollen and sore. Got a generator ASAP.
 
Gem, LOL. Don't know the answer to that question. Dad didn't allow us girls to "observe" that part of dairy farm life. We weren't even supposed to go anywhere near the bull pen. But, I can tell you it was always staggered to keep the maximum number of cows producing milk. They would get, I think, a 3 month break before being bred again, then calve and back to being milked. Once AI was an option, it was bye, bye bull. They can be dangerous. And with AI, lots of options for improved breeding. Dad spent hours poring over his breeding bookwork to get the finest results. And he must have done an excellent job, because when he retired from the milking aspect of farming and sold the herd, we had buyers from all over the states plus about 7 foreign countries.
 
Well, that was longwinded. Better get going on the day, AND get another cup of coffee! Have a wonderful day!
Cindy

Good Morning Bulls and Heifers, it's Tuesday.
 
Awesome news Crunch! And while you are recuperating you'll finally be able to catch up on your trip reports.
Please make sure that Tomas lets us know how you are doing?
 
PJ, thanks so much for all of the pix, that SC sure is a beautiful young lady.
 
Gem, no problem with white trash around here.
 
Bernie & Crunch, thanks for the comments on Raji,  he really is a good boy.
 
Well, I decided to go to work yesterday and it was an interesting ride. Glare ice in multiple spots, and I did see several cars spin out, but I made it to work and back OK. Much cooler this morning, currently 4F and more snow on the way.

Wag more....bark less.

Yeah Crunch!!!
Happy to be here, -25 c at home.
Major drama for SIL - they arrived at ABBWR to find no reservation. They got their room though since they had paperwork. Yesterday were informed by the front desk that the reservation had been cancelled by Hotelbed dot com. They booked through something called Gala Hotel. Looking at TA reviews turns out this is a very common complaint with Gala - folks show up to hotel and no reservation. And no reversal of funds on credit card and no notification.
ABBWR were very accommodating, as always wonderful staff there.
SIL is now at HAC, quite a savings over the rack rate at ABBWR but a big disappointment for them.
Hard to stay upset with the beautiful weather here. Too choppy for a decent snorkel yesterday and today so far, sargassum is rolling in but not too thick yet.

Howdy and good morning all.
 
  It will be a nice sunny day here on the coast with a high of 68 degrees. Currently it is 44F at 7:45. We will have nice weather until the weekend when winter returns.
 
  Yesterday I dropped by the bank and then decided to eat lunch at Fibber McGee's. It was around 2 o'clock when I got home and Freddie and I decided to take a nap. Retirement agrees with me.
 
  Cindy, glad to hear that Chris is feeling better and can return to work.
 
  PJ, very nice picture of SC with her 25th birthday cake. I bet those little parakeets love to be outdoors in the warm sun on your deck. Thank you for posting SoSo's pictures as well. She always has nice pics.
 
  MB, you guys need a break from that ice and cold. March is just around the corner for your next tropical visit. Yes !  I don't mind helping Andrea as she is a friend in need. Glad she hired "two men and a truck" to move the heavy stuff. Taking boxes down 3 levels isn't any fun but at least it's all 'downhill'.  Couldn't believe that she got a place with no elevator.
 
 Gem, Andrea's current place is about 22 miles South in Little River,SC. She's moving into a ranch style house in N. Carolina that would be only 3 miles from her work, so the move is 18 miles or so. Still a pain for her to pack up all of her belongs and then unpack it all. Oh the joys of moving.
 
  Badger, Raji is a cool dog. I always enjoy seeing his pictures. Try to stay warm when working outside.
 
  Crunch, the doctors are moving pretty darn quick on the surgery. My prayers for success and a good recovery as well.
 
  Hi SNF, Holly, Frank, Bob, nipper.
 
  More coffee needed.
See y'all,
Bernie

Weekend at Bernie's

Excellent news, Crunch. Will you be in the new Clements hospital or Lipshy? One of the things I liked about the UTSW hospitals, besides the great care, is the room service meals. They have a menu and you call them with whatever you want, whenever you want. Including snacks. You can even order for Tomas for a small fee. You couldn't be in a better place for your surgery and aftercare.

Morning all
 
PJ,  She's 25 already?  Wow!  Congratulations to her!  I'm sure you are extremely proud and should be!
 
Everyone I've talked to lately is sure excited about this upcoming May trip.  Ann is coming also.
I'm going to try to get away at the end of the month.  Ann is coming to assist and I arranged a wheelchair assist thru the airports.  We both need a break.  Will be in POMO as Ann is going to see about needed dental work.  We have to change accommodations 3 times due to high season and a big wedding in town but it should be worth it.  Not even attempting to go to Akumal.  I talked with Kay and she couldn't find much.   I found a room at HAC for 2 nights that was $511 for just the 2 nights.  No thanks.  I don't want to fight the crowds.  These days I prefer POMO.

Good morning BCers!
Gray sky...but warm temps.  Didn't even need a jacket for yard patrol. 
Letting the woodstove have a rest.  Morning chores finished. 
Washing bedding and vacuuming on my agenda today.  Plus some ironing.  
 
Thank you for SC's Happy Bday wishes.  Yes, hard to believe she is 25 years old already.
 
Gem,  she is beautiful inside and out.  A classic butterfly.  This is one of my favorite pics of her. 
 
Just about says it all regarding SC's personality.  LOL   I've always called her my "Little Flutterbye".
 
Crunch,  So very happy that you qualified for the less invasive heart surgery. 
Will continue praying and sending good karma your way.  Hugs
 
Twirls,  I know I am excited about May trip to PoMo.  Been watching Utube videos just about
every night.  CasaTucan webcam is back up.  Just received my PoMo MapChick maps yesterday.
So will spend more time just looking and dreaming.  LOL
Glad you and Ann are going.  Sea breeze and warm temps are bound to be good for you.  Hugs 
 
Time to start chasing dust bunnies.   Wishing everyone a great day!  Hugs
