The Geminids meteor shower did not dissapoint, there was well over a hundred per hour between midnight and one am. Unfortunatly, ol Hempy fell asleep in that warm sleeping bag and woke up about five am. The meteor shower had slowed to about 45 per hour so I abandoned the adventure about 6 am. Now I remember how it feels to wake up all stuffy nosed and drug out from camping out, lol. But it was worth it, and it makes my morning jave all the better.

Tart apples, the best are Jona Gold but good luck in getting them, they are scoffed up so fast they are usually gone early in the season by big companies like marie collander and hostess. Granny Smith and young gala will do fine too.

I went outside about 1:00 A.M., and saw a few, but it was so cold that Stein and I went back in and went to sleep. Coffee is good any morning. Can't wake up without it.

Well Hostess won't be needing them anymore. I love Granny Smiths!
Dang I saw a few of those shooting stars but I guess I gave up too soon.

Ancient Wolf, do you do much cooking on your wood stove?
Not much, but some. It will be good if we have a power outtage. MY internet has been down for the last 24 hours.

If you have an Amish or Mennonite store around check with them on the apples. They should have some or be able to get you some.:)
Thanks. We do have one in town. I will call them to day.
I think I have seen dried apples in a box, like the ones raisins come in.
Is it OK to use apple butter if can't find dried apples?

I'm going to go out after while to see if the birds are out. I was out early to let the dogs pee. I didn't notice any birds. Ol' kitty tom jumps up on the porch rail demanding 100% of my attention. If he doesn't get full attention he reminds me with claws to the chest. Lol.

It did not matter, we used whatever was on the trees, from Graany Smiths to the yellow June apples.

I like to make individual serving size of hot fried apple pies using apple butter and the canned yeast rolls and a dip of vanilla ice cream.

I'm not sure about the apple butter. You might end up creating something new but I bet it would be good.:) I bet the Amish or Mennonites can find you some. Good luck.:)

That does sound good. My mom use to make fried pies. She would make me one with a bunch of butter and cocoa in it. Oh gosh, you cut into that thing and all that hot butter and chocolate oozes out, so good - a chocolate high I'm telling you! LOL I never thought about ice cream. No doubt that would meet the daily quota in calories. lol I need to make her some fried apple pies.

I went out from about 11:30 until 12:00 and saw a few. I didn't know you could see so many more stars with just binoculars! It was really pretty out last night. Hope you get your wish!:)

I'm glad your internet is back! Oh yes, you would have it made in a power outage, warm and fed. Was the ice storm bad where you live?

Lots of people said it was. LOL But I don't remember it being nearly as bad as the winter of '77-'78. I am going out today to see if I can find my great-grandfather's grave. He served in the Civil War.

Good afternoon to you. I'm just fine and dandy today. Hope that your day is going as well. BTW, I guess that I was right about you. You have a kind heart beating underneath that rough,gruff, and irreverant exterior. There's no need to hide it. I'm glad that you joined the conversation. You're really quite clever and funny when you want to be.
