I have been sitting out in my swing shucking and jiving and getting my corn ready to freeze. The chickens all gathered around eating the silks and wanting me to hurry back with the cobs for them to have something else to munch on.
Now I have to go buy some rossen ears. Rosin? Rosin ears...heck you know what I mean.... I gotta go get some sweet-corn on the cob now! LOL
Did yours turn out alright? We sure had enough rain this year they should have big kernels.

Try your local Senior Citizens Center. The cooks there are always glad to get any excess tomatoes, beans, corn, eggs, or whatever. Mine prepares lunch for about 30 seniors daily Monday thru Friday. I even take them the green tomatoes for fried green tomatoes and they give me fried apple or other fried fruit pies to eat any time I go there.
Not to mention all the fine women that hang around there eh? LOL I wish we had a senior center around here.

Yep, mine turned out great. I gave away about 30 dozen to the old folks, put a bunch in the freezer, and still have more out there. I put Ivory soap chips around the cornfield twice and that kept the deer away. It must have helped with the raccoon population too since they only snuck in and got about 6 ears.

My dinner date from the other night must have been impressed LOL She is coming back for another meal and a movie. I need to get cooking. I may be old, but I ain't dead yet LOL Thanks to the Good Lord. And as Tiny Tim would say "God Bless us each and everyone" Good Evening to all.

Well you know a good woman is always fine company to keep. I know a newly-wed couple that got married just last year. The blushing bride was a chipper little thing of 72. Her husband was in his early eighties. They met on-line.
He drove right up here from Tennessee and wooed her for a few months then married her and took her off with him.
Be careful Wolf ! LOL

I have known this lady for many years and we just enjoy each other's company and have similar tastes in movies (and food). But we are both adamant about no wedding or further involvement. At our age, we both have way too many other obligations. She just keeps me from being a total hermit. But thanks for the warning. LOL

There's an elderly uncle in the family that married 5 years ago. He married a sweet young thing of 72. At his birthday party a few years ago he danced with his wife. It was his 103 birthday. He's 105 now and uses a walker. She's using a moterized wheelchair. Just never know..!

Oh, but I DO know !!. I said that 10 years ago and sticking to it. My friend is my best friend mainly because she feels the same way. We enjoy our time together, and enjoy doing our own thing when we are not. I am too old to be retrained and so is she. LOL

Yes. I hear your words. My aunt said the same thing when her last husband passed about 14 years ago. And she has stuck to it. However a year or so ago a gentleman walked into her life and all at once she was 16 ( with 60 years experience) again!!! Her face--and his-- would absolutely glow when the other walked into the room. She shyly confided in me that even though she'd been married 3 times (she buried the last two) she had never felt like this before! They were the most watched couple in their church and enjoyed every minute of it!! Lol
Alas, she lost her precious friend to cancer within the year but she holds the most wonderful and treasured memories in her heart!

That is absolutely fine for some people and works well for them but we don't need someone under foot 24/7. We can get together and enjoy each other's company about twice a week and still have our free space. I have been hanging out with this lady for nearly 10 years since I lost the wife and aint nothing changed and unlikely that it will and we can "glow" just knowing there is someone out there that cares about you and your welfare, and that is good enough. And getting married would probably just spoil what we do have. But I will say that as long as that lady and I are both living there won't be anyone else. There have been an awful lot of matchmakers in the past 10 years that are not very successful with their matching. LOL Now for a new subject. LOL

Yep. That's her sentiments exactly! No mas.

This should be a fantastic day!! I want to put the house in order and also move a huge mound of mulch. I'm not too good at filling the bucket on the tractor :-( but my dozer man tells me I'll eventually get the hang of it. There is no sunlight coming through the windows so maybe it'll rain and I can work on indoor projects. I have exactly seven days to get ready for overnight company. At least the guest room is ready. Maybe I'll just close my bedroom door and hope no one dare open it! Lol.
The fun part will be selecting menus for Friday night through Sunday morning. Belgium waffles with yummy blueberries/pecans and choices of syrups and cool whip/icecream or the scrambled egg with cheese/hickory smoked bacon/ buttered toast. Obviously I'm not going for the "good for you" , just GOOD. Lol
Have a Super Saturday and enjoy the day that the Lord hath made!

Lol. With meals like those, you'll be lucky your guests don't linger. A nice salad with shredded chicken and toasted almonds sounds nice with sliced apples on the side. Your Begium waffles has my mouth watering. That man of yours is sure missing a good thing when he's gone. Lol. They say the way to a man's heart is through is stomach. I know many will diasgree with that adage. Me, I believe it.

Speaking of birds, there has been only one hummingbird been coming to the feeder this last month. If me or the dog happen to be near the feeder, he flutters in front of us a bit, then goes on to the feeder. I am wondering if he has chased the others away and claimed it.? He looks just like a mallard. I will give him a name. Assuming its a 'he'. Easier to say, I guess. Funny how everything is a 'he' or 'she' around here. The tree is an 'it' though,I do not know why. Maybe I will name him after an itty bitty nephew, so he can be proud. "The day the Lord hath made... Thank you for that!

Wow! It's really quiet in here! Hope that means everyone has has a great day!
@misty: that salad with shredded chicken sounds really good!! Toss in some mandarin oranges... I may try that out on some company soon. Here in a few weeks I plan on "visiting" my better half and I certainly plan to pack that waffle maker! Ok. Gotta stop this food talk. I'm getting hungry. Lol
@what now. You're welcome! It was a great day!
Heeheehee. Naming trees and things. Lol. We named our pond and little park area with the grand kids nicknames . Also the trails in the woods are starting to have names-/ it helps to keep the different areas straight!

I am up to see "Ralph" and talk about a "Buick". I guess I would have been better off to talk about the food instead of gobbling it all down. LOL Chili Dogs in August is just not the thing. Good thing I have antacids. Sunday morning breakfast.. Tums and coffee

Good morning! Well, it was all over soon as the dog smelled the bacon here. Even the tiniest kittys came out this morning, they got the milk. Horse had to check the coffee cup. Maybe I start over..

It's sad --- when I was in college I could grab a slice of cold pizza and tacos at 2 am didn't matter. Now I contemplate both what and when I eat. I love the fruit flavored tums its an aging persons hors d'oeuvres.

Good afternoon, folks. Went riding yesterday, and my old bones feel it today. I just put my horse out in the paddock today, and she looked at me as if to say, "Are we going on our jaunt again today?" No way!! I ended up digging out a ditch instead. That should be good for the old back.
Speaking of birds, I was sitting out on my deck yesterday, and a mockingbird perched on the rail, not 6 inches from my shoulder. He gave out a loud squalk and flew off. I guess that I invaded his territory. We have a few hummingbirds around here. When I first saw them, I thought that they were bumblebees. They are so tiny. Have a good day, folks. Will be back later.

After the Tums and coffee breakfast, I made the mistake of visiting the local buffet for lunch. I might need to eat again by next Thursday LOL
