It is now Labor Day, isn't it a day of rest? I ask that of my neighbor when I saw him priming and painting his garage. He replied , it was a day away from cooking and cleaning but not from catching up on outside work. I liked what he said about the cooking and cleaning (it doesn't work like that in my house, my husband is home) so I guess it is a day for catch up. Tuesday will be here and it will be Monday all over again.Two days of work in one day, UG!

I love the weather, cooler but warm in the afternoon. In fact it was down right cold the other morn whenI went to water. I wonder how many days my garden will have to grow. It was so hot for so long it all but stopped growing and now the cool weather is slowing it just doesn't know what to do.

I think I have fall fever...I am differently in a funk. I think I just need a good cry, which is hard to do with dh home. I have to hide when I cry at movies...he makes fun of me.

I need to start with Christmas...I really need a plan to get everything done...but can't get everything else done in the house so I just keep putting it off. I don't think a promise note for Christmas will work.

Time for pickles, it is such a process but worth it when I finish. Just want to rest ...but that doesn't get anything done. UG!!!!!!!!!

For the garden of your daily living

Plant three rows of peas:
1. Peace of mind
2. Peace of heart
3. Peace of soul

Plant four rows of squash:
1. Squash gossip
2. Squash indifference
3. Squash selfishness
4. Squash grumbling

No Garden is without turnips
1. Turnip for meetings

Water freely with patience and cultivate with love. There is much fruit in your garden because you reap what you sow.

Is it just Wednesday?

I get to go shopping with my dd. That doesn't happen very often, Yah!

Bailey is scared of the sprinkler. She has never seen one, which tells you how often I water the grass. She would just stop and not know which direction to go to get away from it. Then she would bark at it. So funny, but she didn't like it when I laughed at her. Guess I wouldn't like it if I caught her laughing at me either.

The count down is on. Why does time go by so slow when you want to do something fun and fast when you don't want to do something. A puzzle of life , I guess.

It seems like forever since I have seen all my children and grandchildren. Even when they live close , time just gets away from us. I guess it makes the time together more special. I try not to bug them(but really everyday would be fine with me).

I have a plan for the talent show, if I have the nerve to do it. Sometimes my good ideas don't pan out. Sure is fun to watch though!

We have been working with Bailey to not go crazy when someone comes to the door. Well we have changed our training. Dh empty a small can of candy and I had the thought to fill it with rocks and shake it when she does something wrong. We shook it, she really doesn't like it but we haven't tried it at the door. Wish us luck.

Almost there

I feel like a broken is doing great. Everyday I see more babies, can't wait to share with the family.

Trying to plan to water the grass(don't tell my dh) he only sees more mowing. But with the 4th, I don't want to take a chance of a fire and it is really drying out with the hot weather.

Robin is freezing water for us..I have a big sack to give her full of a lot of containers. I know it will take a lot to keep things cold.

I will start making homemade ice cream Thursday. It is more fun to do it with everyone but I don't want to miss out on any fun so I will make it and freeze it for later.

Poor Bailey sure doesn't like the hot weather...she is glad to come in after I water out back. We shaved her and it is starting to grow back...hate to think what she would have felt like if we hadn't shaved her.

She found a ball when she was supposed to be doing her business. UG!!!!!!!!! She forgets what she is supposed to do. All she does is run past me daring me to catch her(like I actually could)she throws the ball then runs to catch it. It really is funny...if it weren't so hot out. I have to go to the gate and knock on it. She thinks someone is there and comes running. So far she hasn't cought on to me. If it weren't so hot I would feel bad tricking her.

Three days and counting....can't wait to have everyone come. Sure hope they can stay the whole weekend!

Here comes friday

I'm trying to get ready for the 4th. The problem is if I do it to soon, I will have to do it all again. The heat is kicking me!!!!!!! So I have to reserve my strength. Inch by inch it will get done. I really just relax and enjoy the 4th without too much work on those days. Good idea, hope I can pull it off.

I am helping with the blood drive, our church is the one to provide the food and serve it. I said I would make some of the potato salad. Man, I haven't made that much potato salad in years. Hope I can remember how to do it. We are serving sloppy Joe's also, and cookies(homemade) the last time I gave blood we got OJ and a cookie. Maybe we can get a crowd in with the smell of food.

My garden it doing great!!!!!!! I love to see all the babies growing. The melons are going crazy...I saw in a mag. that when they get so big they hung a pantie hose so it held the melon without it being on the ground. I'm going to try looks funny but if I can get the melons without them getting yucky on the ground it will be worth it.

Bailey loves to be close to me while I work...if I'm in a hurry it really bugs me. When I iron she is just right under my feet, not sure if she thinks she is protecting me from that hot iron. The other day I was working in the kitchen and had an idea to put in some music. I put in Rascal Flatts and probably had it to loud , but I was singing and really getting down. Then I noticed , no Bailey, she was in the living room looking down. Wow, if I had know she didn't like my music , I would have put in in sooner.

Cooler today, hope it stays for a while. I keep checking on the always rains on the 4th and with the long dry spell, who knows what will happen.

the day after

After church we had a pot luck dinner. We had fathers, grandfathers, and not yet fathers. Usually the women and children go first, but on fathers day they went first. It is so funny to see them go would have thought they had won something wonderful. The young men and little boys also went with the fathers. Again their little faces were just glowing.

The men of the church help teach the young men and boys to be respectful and let the women and girls eat first. They wait their turn and learn a good lesson . But they were in hog heaven yesterday. You wouldn't think that they would get such a joy by going first but they knew the joy of eating first if only for one day.

It is hurts just by being in the sun just for a few minutes. My poor plants are taking a beating, I just can't keep enough cool water on them. No rain in sight. I have to get out to do some running around..I am putting it off as long as I can!

May have the girls down this week. Yah, can't wait. What a joy they are! And so much fun to be around. They can't get here quick enough.

The 4th is coming...Cooler temps. would be appreciated but if not the house will be cooler till the sun goes down.

middle of the week

Just made it in from watering. To do it right it takes a long time. Everything is growing very well. I picked my first vegs. today, Yah!

It is supposed to rain sprinkled just enough to make the car dirty, UG.

I have started to exercise again, I will be glad when my body gets used to it! Can't do much but every little bit will help , I hope.

Bailey came in to me yesterday, and she had red coming from her mouth and on her chin hairs. I panicked, did she swallow something that cut her mouth , was she bleeding from her stomach? A million thoughts went through my mind in a matter of seconds also could we afford the vet. bill. I went into the hall and there I found a red jello pkg. that had fallen off the pantry shelf...I was so releaved , it was hard to correct her(I did very sternly). When I told dh, he just laughed at me. Later, she got up on him and burped , he said "smells like jello". So glad he was having fun with it.

My body says, take a nap, my work says no. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Is it bedtime yet?

Well, I have had a busy day. I've been practicing giving a food demonstration for our women's group. I am doing cucumber sandwiches(boy do I love these) If you haven't tried them, you really need to. Then I'll make a peach salsa, again you need to try it. It is good with pork, chicken or fish. We will be using chips. Then I will have them try stuffed apricots(cream cheese base). Everyone is such good cooks, I didn't think I could teach them anything so I went with things that they might not try without eating it first.

July 4th is coming fast, and I don't feel like the spirit is with everyone. Everyone is so busy I hope it's just a relaxing, fun filled vacation. Sure hope if they don't want to come they will let me know. I'll cry but then I'll put on my big girl panties on and go to bed.

Garden is growing, the rain really did help. The pen is getting smaller and smaller...they look like they are trying to stake out their own territory.
Hope I have some vegs. by the 4th.

Found some different ice cream to make. Should be fun.

Need to get the laundry in the dryer , hate to heat up the house before the temp. goes down.

Hope this evening is quiet and Bailey doesn't want to go out so I can get ready for bed. Nice thought but don't think it will happen.

A thought

"The invitation to repent is rarely a vioce of chastisement but rather a loving appeal to turn around to 're-turn' toward God. It is the beckoning of a loving Father and His Only Begotten Son to be more than we are, to reach up to a higher way of life, to change, and to feel the happiness of keeping the commandments. Being disciples of Christ, we rejoice in the blessing of repenting and the joy of being forgiven. They become part of us, shaping the way we think and feel"

Elder Neil L. Anderson

get it done

After much thinking , I realize that I think too much. I got up today and looked at what needed to be done, and the first thing that I thought was, "how do you eat an elephant?" "One bite at a time."
Now my house isn't an elephant but you have to start some bite by bite I will get things done.
My squash was looking so wilted yesterday I thought it was a goner. But this morning when I went out, there they were, standing up straight with their large leaves turned up like they were praiseing God for the rain and cool weather. What a sight to see.
Now, it has stopped raining and is hot. Guess what ,they are wilted again...hope they hang in there till I get some veg. from them.

Haven't seen my son since he had his radiation. He was sure looking so pale and ashen. I don't think I looked like that when I went through all the things you do so you can live a long healthy life. I wish the VA would treat their vet.s with more care. It is a shame that in the U.S. we can't give our young men and women who have served our country the same measure of care that the general population gets. Why doesn't our government do something. They can give to other countries and run up the debt but they can't take care of our vet.s.

Well of to water the front flowers...the only good thing is I get just as wet as the flowers do, and it is hot out so it should feel good!

Tuesday, June 8, 2010


It is amazing that as I'm going to bed and think of everything that needs to get done the next day, I am excited to make a dent on what is staring me in the face.
Then I get is like pulling teeth to get me motivated.
You would think I have a little fairy doing my things for me. She has to be very small 'cause I never see anything she has done. I don't want to hurt her feelings but she is not holding up her end of things. Perhaps she needs to call in her whole family. I would pay for the call.

Ok, I can't put off doing my work anymore. Actually, I can't think of anything to talk about. So I will act busy in hopes of things looking better.

Monday, May 31, 2010


I'm always excited when it gets time to plant veg. and flowers. Planting them and praying my hard work will pay off.
Then the first peeks through and the waiting game begins.
The watering in hot weather, sweating, and fertilizing it.
They were growing slow...I did plant early..I hate to wait for the weather to turn hot.
But then the hot weather began and it took off.
I planted watermelon and cantaloupe(even though I have never had good luck with growing them.) They didn't come up so I planted the plants. Also, I forgot where I planted them so I just guessed and planted more.
Well, seeds started I don't know if I have watermelon or cantaloupe growing in separate places or all together. They are started to vine out. Oh, the surprise of gardening!
The cucumbers, and the other vining veg. are starting to vine out and has blooms on them. Yah? The tomatoes and peppers have babies on them. They are so cute.
The blackberries that we planted are growing oh so slowly. Only one isn't growing. I will send it back for a new one. It sounded like we might have berries the first year. Can't wait!

Only a few weeks and it will be the 4th of July. I wait the whole year for the fun to begin. And always pray for the safety and fun to be had by everyone. Of course just having everyone here is the best gift they could give us.
We have all started looking and thinking of what food to have. So fortunate that the girls and Ron pitch in with all their ideas. It sure makes it fun for me.
It sure would be nice to go to the garden to get the food we need to eat!

We plan to put up the pool next rain please!
Sure would be nice to have the kids in June but not sure if that will happen.

The peach trees that were so beautiful this spring with their huge flowers are loaded with fruit. Some peaches fall off with each rain or wind. But there are so many peaches we have to take them off so they don't break the branches. That just kills me...I know it has to be done but I sure want peaches in the fall.

I will tell everyone that planting your veg. in potting soil really works!!!!!!!!! No weeding and no plowing up the ground. When all the veg. are done for the season, we will just turn them over and add to the dirt. Or maybe leave them till next year...not sure yet. Now sure why we can't use them again next year..I will have to investigate that one.

Monday, April 19, 2010

Yah for spring!

Well, I have my garden planted(almost) Some of it is already up. I'm taking a chance in planting early, but it takes so long before you can harvest it, I didn't want to wait. I still have extra seeds just in case we have a late snow,freeze. Just praying it stays spring and warms up gradually.

Bailey just loves to check out what I do...she loves to eat dirt and roots. Not pretty!
I think we are going to have her shaved. Don't want to but it would be easier to groom. I will check to see she doesn't looks bald. I just love her face with all that hair, she looks like a monkey with the hair away from her eyes. Oh well it will grow back. Ug!

The trees have been unbeleaveable. The blooms are twice the size I remember from last year. Sure hope we have a lot of peaches this year.

I'm ready for bed and it is only 6:30. Is it spring fever? For some reason I just can't get around and get things done. I guess I will think about it tomorrow.

A big sigh

Well, Bailey and I are here by ourselves. The house just let out a big sigh. No kids, no fun!

I'm not sure about the girls but this week was flat out fun! It is so nice to have grandchildren come to visit. I'm never ready to have them go home but so glad that my children share with me.

Bailey is in depression and just looking at her I'm getting there too.

Sure enjoy the laughter, noise, running , jumping ect. I took their pictures by out peach tree, the flowers on it this year is unbelievable. Someone else said that their tree blooms are better this year. Sure hope that mean that we will have some peaches this year.

Planted some garden and the radishes are already coming up. Can't wait to plant the rest. I plan to plant watermelon, canalop. and anything I can get to grow. I think this year might be a good year for a garden.

My dh will be here soon. He did the soccor watching today. He walked a lot. I told him it was good for him and he said it wasn't either cause his back hurt and I'm sure his legs will be hurting tomorrow. He is supposed to walk 30 min. a day. I can't talk him into getting past the hurt, and doing more. The days will get warmer and maybe Bailey and I can get him to walk with us.

This week will very quiet for me. UG. I really need to do some spring cleaning and I wish I could take out everything and start from the beginning. It is so hard to clean when you have a small house and lots of things in it. I can remember my mom would clean out drawers and do spring and fall cleaning. I would come home and there would be a big pile of stuff that she would carry out. Maybe I can get motivated to do some of it. Or not. This winter seems to have had more dust than I remember last year. Not sure why but I don't like it.

My dh uncovered the air conditioner, I told him we couldn't turn it on till June. Wonder if that will happen?

just like a kid

Yesterday Bailey wanted to go outside, so away we went. I let her loose to do her job, she went around the yard then came back to me. She sat by me and looked up to get some loving so of course I loved on her. I said Bailey didn't you have to potty? She got up like she was ready to go in, I grabed the leash and she went the other way. She walked me around her favorite spots. First to the fence to check on the neighbor kids just in case they were there, they weren't. So she took me around the swings, then the took of and did her job.

I guess she just wanted to share with me her favorite spots.
She made me feel very special. I know it sounds strange but she acted just like a child would when they want to show you something special.

She is so loving, and seems to know when I need a hug.

When did good common sense go out of style. We are soon going to be voting on putting in a new hospital. I have listened to them and their speach is full of holes. They said we have over 8,000 people in Pratt...we really have about 6. Which would make a big difference in their ability to collect sales tax. They are trying to convence everyone they need a new one when the one we have is ok. We don't have enough people to fill it anyway. They have floors that no one is on...they have built on when they didn't need to, those suites are mostly empty. They add a 1 percent tax..we already have a 7plus tax, that would bring it up to 8 plus. The city comm.want to put in a new road(to put 250,000homes on it and they will give them a break to build there) that would put it at 9 plus, then there is the gov. that want to raise taxes...we could be looking at a 10 percent sales tax. Who can afford to buy here or live here.

When did pay as you go go? Also, if we don't get enough sales tax money to pay for it they will tax our homes. I don't see how they can get away with it.

If I could buy land far away from anyone, I would be self suffent and there would be nothing they could do.

We need to take back America. And we have to start at the root of the problem.

I just had my taxes done...we got to talking and I of course got on my band box and gave him my opinion. He thanked me for giving him another view of things...sure hope he remembers that veiw when he votes.

I can feel the anger that is all over our great country. If they don't start listening it is only going to get worse. Then what?

I can see it coming, the whole country flat broke, no where to go, live, and having to live like my folks did. Of course that wouldn't be so bad...I remember what to do with nothing, and growing what we need to eat. Gosh, I think I'm doing that now. HAHA

I really do need a girls day out.....

Monday, March 29, 2010

keeping busy

It is just after 7:00 PM and I want to eat. I did buy spinach and had it with vin. and oil. Boy did it taste good. But I think I could have eaten the whole bunch. I still want steak and salad. I guess I'm going to have to fix it after tues. weigh in. Dh doesn't like steak so I'm on my own.

I need to take fuzzy muffin for a walk but not sure I'm up to that yet. I left her out of her pen while I went to the mail drop. She was laying on the rug by the door when I got back. She didn't want me to leave but she was ok. I'll try it longer next time.

This is the week....I start my garden. Not able to get down and work the dirt but one of my farm books said to plant in the potting soil. Just poke holes in the bottom, put down paper or cardboard, put it on top and cut out the top(laying it down flat) and plant in the potting soil. Then mulch...My dh will do the heavy lifting...I will plant the cool weather veg. and when they are done, I will plant the hot weather plants in the same potting soil. It looked great in the book...hopefully it will work. I showed my dh a picture...he still hasn't gotten it right in his head. I should be funny trying to tell him what I want to do. The neighbors should get a laugh out of it.

Nothing on the tv tonight until 9 and then Castle comes on..sure like it...but it is going of for the summer so tonight is the last new one, I think.

The youngest ones are coming next week. Yah!!!!!!!!! Maybe they will walk and ex. with me.
Sure hope something is on the theatre next week, more fun to take them out for the evening.
Bailey will be in hog heaven! They are so good with her, and she can't get enough of them.
When Eman was here, Bailey got in his room(she sleeps in our room, with a kid gate up) dh forgot to put the gate up so he woke up with her licking his feet. We were surprised to find her in the pen then we figured Eman had taken care of her. He really put up with her...she was on him like flies on honey. She was his buddy for the week. She was so sad when she realized he was gone.

She seems to feel when I need a hug cause she gets up and will love me till she thinks I'm ok. I think she missed being able to be held like a baby so she drapes over my shoulder and the rest of her is on the floor. She gets up on dh but my chair is smaller and she is too big for that.

Hopefully the munchies are over...tomorrow is another day.

Thursday, March 25, 2010


This morning as I finished putting on my makeup I noticed that my left eye(the white) looked funny. As I looked closer it looked like I had broken a blood vessel. I watched as it took over the white of my eye from the outside to the inside. Looks kind of bad but doesn't hurt. I hadn't watch my eye(or anything)bleed. I t never ran out of my eye and finally stopped. It didn't change the way I see, so guess it will be ok.

I really need a girls day out, doing nothing but laughing and acting silly. Maybe garage sales...that is always good. My dh is uptight about his job. One guess who gets slammed.

My eye is now feeling like it has something in the outside corner. I guess it is swollen from all the blood. I need to take a picture cause by the time anyone sees it it will be gone.

Scarlet, here I come. I will think about it tomorrow.

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

I'm still here

Is it spring fever or just the dumb dumbs. I have been in a funk all day. Doing another plate for a lady, I like to do them but just had a hard time getting started. It was t-shirt material. It takes time and you have to be careful not to stretch it. But it does work if you don't rush it.

I fixed the missionaries supper, I try not to fix the same thing but it difficult. Especially since I don't cook meals till Thursday nite. They are so gracious and never let on if they don't care for it.
We are so blessed to have them!

I'm getting ready for taxes. I really hate the government at this time. All the fat cats living high of the hog and the little people eat grub. Where is the justice? I know there isn't any justice in this life.

It is cold and wet today....really want to start planting. Maybe when I have the younger ones here in April we can have some fun planting. Sure hope it is nice when they are here, then we can get out and find some different thing to do.

Thank goodness Bailey is nice to me, she only wants out when she is serious. She gets to go to the beauty shop tomorrow, she loves to get pretty. She is such a girl.

Sure want a steak and salad...that isn't going to happen. Oh well.

As Scarlet says...I'll think about it tomorrow.

Saturday, March 20, 2010


Well I am on my way. Slept till 10:oo , that is not what you do if you want to get anything done.

Have to make something to take to our pot luck dinner for church. Trying a new salad that you freeze, it has 2 cans of strawberry pie filling, pineapple , eagle brand, coolwhip, sure hope it tastes good.

I also am baking a bd cake for Renita. It will be my own design. Right away I can see the thoughts of all the other cakes I have done that were lets say were funny or strange might come to mind. But they are always made with love. Sure hope that counts for something.

So good to have Eman here. Such a treat! Plus he is coming to church and to the pot luck. He hasn't been there since I used to juggle him on my knee. Sure will be nice to have everyone meet him. I am so proud of the young man he has become. My heart still yearns for the little boy that I used to get to kiss. Can't say that would go over very big now. But still get hugs and that is good.

I get the 4 youngest here the first part of April. YAH. They are always fun and maybe we can get the neighbers 3 to join in some of the fun. Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

spring break

Great news! Eman has come for a visit. I am so thankful that he still wants to come. Now to try to figure out what to do so he doesn't get bored. He is also so even tempered that it is hard to tell if he is having fun. Right now Bailey has him entertained. You know how she is with kids. She thinks she is in Heaven with someone else here!
Well off to my meeting,I know that it isn't going to be good news. No matter what I do it is always the same UG.

Friday, March 12, 2010

I'm back on

Hello in blog land. My dd saved my blog from I don't know what. It was one of the games that I had put much for my adventures.
She also helped me pick out another pattern. To difficult for me, even when I watched her do it.
So glad she didn't get my "its to difficult for me gene."
My hands are cold and my feet are numb, my body is ready for spring, a long one!

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

just wanting if this thing works.

can you beat me?

I just played my pinball game and got 101600 I think. Can you beat me?

Monday, February 22, 2010

Is it spring yet.

I keep saying "spring is just a day closer" but everytime I say it we get more snow. I think I will not say it again. Can't wait to start my pot garden (that sounds kind of bad) I have large pots that I plant in. I found out where to get the spinach that like hot temp. Yah, I can eat it all summer.
Haven't gone outside for a couple of days. And I have no plans to do it anytime soon. I'm trying to convince Bailey she doesn't have to eat or drink until dh comes home. So far she has slept a good part of the morning. She seems to know how I feel and doesn't bug me like she does dh. She knows I don't go out to sit and get cold. Right now I'm cold and I haven't even opened the doors.
Good grief it is almose noon....and I haven't done anything except the laundry. Sure feel like a nap. But I'm so cold that to try to nap would be very hard.
Found the saying the other day and liked it.
Self-disciplin is when your conscience tells you to do something and you don't talk back.

good thought

Because love is the great commandment, it ought to be at the center of all and everything we do in our own family, in our Church callings, and in our livelihood. Love is the healing balm that repairs rifts in personal and family relationships. It is the bond that unites families, communities, and nations. Love is the power that initiates friendship, tolerance, civility, and respect. It is the source that overcomes divisiveness and hate. Love is the fire that warms our lives with unparalleled joy and divine hope. Love should be our walk and our talk. (this was in our church bulletin, and it was so good I had to share it) from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

have fun

Just added a new game....can't hardly see them but they are fun to play. And I just love my fish!
We have our womens group meeting tonight, we are having a pamper nite. Have all my goodies fixed and the MK packed. Just wish I could stay warm. I have been freezing the past two days. I thought I was getting sick, but just have a bad headache. Ug!

Tuesday, February 9, 2010


ok now I have taked out every thing else...shouldn't brag.


I tried to change my background and couldn't get it to work.....maybe my dd will come over to help? Do you like my fish and the game. I am proud that I got it to work.


After yesterday, I am all strung out! Can't get my act together. I really think I have ADD. I keep loseing my notes and when the day is over, I find them. I looked all over for the paper towels that I keep on the kitchen finally went to get a new one and put it on the counter and looked , there was the other paper towel on the counter. Maybe I need a nap.

White is a good color!

What a difference two days make. I was ready to start my garden(yes I know we are still in Jan) But the difference in all the shades of brown are getting me down. I want color!!!!!!! The Lord listened to me...we are now covered with beautiful white snow. So beautiful, and even nicer since my dh takes care of the outside for me. He wouldn't even let me go and pick my meds. He is very wise, he knows I'm not good in snow.
I found a mag. called Hobby Farm Home. I bought it because is shows how to make Mozzarella Cheese, can't wait to try it, but it is a great mag. has a little of everything in it.
I love to grow spinach!!!!!!!!!! And this year I plan to plant a lot. The bad thing is it doesn't like hot weather. I found in the book a spinach substitue and it loves hot weather. Yah, only I can't find anyone who knows where to find it. It vines up and could grow in a pot. Another good thing. The mag. has a web site so I will have to go there , I know when you have to go to their web site it will cost an arm and a leg. I really don't want to find out I can't get it!
Spring is just a day closer, Yah!

should I laugh or cry

This weekend I fixed bbq wings for my hubby. I really don't like them but for lack of anything else to eat ,I had two wings. Hate the mess and almost no meat. Plus all the work for very little. Well , as I was getting messy and thinking it was just to much mess, it hit me. When I was a little girl and on the farm. My mom would fry up chicken (first she had to chase it and kill it, but that is another story) we would start out getting the wings to eat. As we grew up, we worked up to the drum stick and then the thigh. We never got to go up further than that because the adults would eat them. So at last, I have started working backwords again. Can you believe that hot wings are the thing to eat now. And you pay big buck for the wings that have no meat and little kids get stuck eating them. Ug, that is probably why I don't like anything but the white meat(the breast). My hubby doesn't understand why I don't love the bbq wings.....I guess you had to be there to understand.
