Is that a Peter Tosh song, GUS?

Welp, Peter Tosh did have an M-16 guitar... :)

Just got back from visiting the family farm of one of my guitar buddies - way out in the country. I didn't ask how may acres, but it was vast - several hundred, maybe even a thousand acres. Cows, wheat, free-range chickens, corn and horses. He raises barred Plymouth Rock chickens as a hobby, and they are magnificent - especially the cock of he walk. He gave me a dozen of their eggs - smallish and light grey/brown. He says they're perfect for pickling. We rode down to his 'neighbor's' place to get some large brown eggs. As we were headed into the barn I smelled an awful smell - not the one I usually associate with barns - and about that time I heard a seriously loud grunt. Three huge pigs, about 400lbs. each. Yikes!! The neighbor told me that if I ever needed eggs again and no one was around, I could just come into the barn and grab some out of the back fridge. And leave two dollars per dozen. (I guess don't pet the pigs was implied...) He said they were so fresh that they wouldn't peel after boiling, but are best used in baking. Huh. Thankfully there wasn't a pig-knicking today. I've witnessed one before, but I still feel bad for the little fellers... :)

I haven't heard anything about it, Captain. Some happy talk about us making it to the big tournament this year, but I don't know if that's accurate either...

Trump's tweets from this morning are stunning. He's be a fine addition to JOM!! ;)

'I mean too much to society...' Snorfle.

A menagerie of happiness this morning: Clarice's Pieces; daddy's photo selections; JimNorCal listening to Widespread Panic; and sunshine for the first time in a week...

'...maybe Trump told the Russians directly he was thinking of running on his visit to Moscow in November, 2013?' Spoken like a true beta.

The DNC announced that an illegal alien has been tapped as one of their super delegates!! Seriously, what the heck?! I recognize that it's a private entity, but isn't casting a vote as a delegate considered interference from a foreign country since she's a Mexican citizen? Not that I don't support them doing this - I do - because it tells middle America once again that the dems love them some illegals...

A Beasts' concert review: When my daughter showed me the tickets, they were on the floor, row 5 - which was fantastic! But, when we got there, there were no seats - it was just 'The Pit' - open floor. Thankfully it was limited to three hundred people and they did a great job of checking wrist bands, so it was not at all crowded. We stood at the very front - for almost four hours!! It was her fiancé's first Widespread Panic show, her twentieth or so, and I've lost track of how many I've seen, but I've been following them for twenty-four years. We hadn't been in the pit for ten minutes when a Spreadhead offered us some 'free acid', saying that it was 'very clean'! I told him thanks, but I was trying to quit. lol They opened with 'Pleas' - on of my all time favorite WP tunes - and performed other favorites including 'All Time Low', 'Space Wrangler', 'Diner', and 'Chilly Water'. They also covered 'Walk On' and 'No Sugar Tonight'. The first set was 68 minutes, the second 102 minutes, and 25 minutes of encores. That's a lot of performing for a band in which most are even older than me!! I even got a free back massage from a very attractive spin hippie chick when I was grabbing us some more ($9) beers at halftime. We got back home at about 2:00 this morning and if I could get tickets, I'd be back down there this evening for their second show... Here's the link to the recorded show. And if you look closely enough at the photo, you can see ol' Beasts right up front. I'm the tallest one in the pit. And pretty damned certain the oldest. 😎

'See MM ‘s post above where she specifically uses the word grovel.' Not seeing any such comment.
And run for president in 2020, Miss Marple.
'Then POOF. I have to buy FOUR of them.' Just as Clarice intended. :)
Our paper reported that Doug Jones raised almost $21M dollars to help with his and McTurtle's campaign to defeat Moore; who relatively raised a paltry $5M. The dems can't continue that 4:1 ratio across the senate races in 2018. Just sayin'...
Trump is banging more hot chicks than I am. What a jerk...
'...people are pre- judging Romney and don’t like him because he wasn’t a pro- Trumper.' Hahahahahahahahaha!!
I never said 'ban', maryrose - don't misrepresent my comment. I said he should remove himself. Big damned difference. Cruz, Rubio, and Graham were candidates in 2016, unlike Romney. They've also eliminated themselves from any shot at the presidency. Cruz has rehabilitated himself a good bit since then; Rubio and Graham continue to be jokes...
Oh, yeah - where were Mitt's awesometastic 'Mormon values' when he took tons of campaign cash from that miscreant Trump?
Romney actively campaigned against Trump. The election was a dichotomy, ergo, he effectively promoted one of the most corrupt and vile tyrants ever to run for President. He shouldn't merely grovel, he should remove himself from Republican / conservative politics.
'Occasionally he may disagree.' That may be an understatement. In case anyone forgot, here's what the guy who gave BHO a second term had to say about Trump: 'Here's what I know. Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He's playing the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat. His domestic policies would lead to recession. His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe. He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president. And his personal qualities would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill.' Bite me, Mitt.
lol, daddy!
'The purists don’t think he is enough like President Trump to make the cut.' What does that even mean?
Black Russian Lives Matter!
Is Romney's dog still alive?
