Is Abeliever still around? Glad to see you're still alive and kicking. LOL. All is well with mama and Leona. My son goes off to the Army on the 11th of August and we have moved to Oklahoma to be closer to my wifes family. One good thing about being a Correctional Officer is you can get work in any state you want. I hope my old friends are still out there. I hope to hear from you guys soon.
Abeliever has not posted in a couple weeks, so I don't know. I guess Little Leona just had a birthday. That would be her 2nd? I recently got an email from OJG asking for prayers due to health issues but she has not been on for a couple months or more and the Anagrammer is saddened by not having a debate over Middle East issues. But I think I see him pop in and out sometimes. But I am never quite sure.

I am glad to see that I am alive and kicking too. LOL We lost UNA and if the obit was really him (which it appears that it was), GOD has blessed me with a few more years than him and I suppose I have found less disfavor with GOD than UNA thought I would. LOL Oglala is still alive and kicking too. Imposter had a wake-up call and is now wearing the white hat. LOL Roaming is the only poster that I know that has been on here longer than me, and negative commentary and judge-its has not chased either of us off. We must be tough. LOL We have gained some newer regulars that I enjoy their conversations. Glad all is well with you.

Nope.. Your stories of Grandma brought back many memories. But those were not so much grandparent memories, but those of my Mom and Dad and the way we lived here at the homestead in my youth with no electric or running water. Since returning here, I tore out the back porch and built a new chimney on the new exterior wall and now have my own wood-coal burning heat stove. It was a bitter-sweet memory taking down the chimney that once was in the middle of the house and reusing the same bricks that my Dad had laid in 1946 to build a hearth for my new stove. I got really dirty from the 1940's coal dust accumulation. LOL That chimney had dual thimbles with the cook stove on one side where the kitchen was and a pot belly warm morning stove in a sitting room where I slept for years on a couch with what little clothes that I had in cardboard box behind the couch. The only other furniture in there was a rocking chair, a small table with a kerosene lamp and a cabinet sized batter radio with a wire running out the window for an antenna. That room was quite crowded on Saturday night when Dad would take the battery off his old car so we could listen to Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubb. StringBean, and Minnie Pearl on the Grand Ole Opry. He would roll start the old car on Sunday mornings to go to church.

My older sisters enjoyed the feather bed that was called a "feather tick" in the 3rd room of a 4 room house that is now 6 rooms and a bath instead of the original 4 rooms and a path. LOL The outhouse once sat where my chicken house is now and the chickens now deposit in the same area where Mom raked out the dime that I swallowed and I took the cleaned off dime to the local country store and got a Moon Pie and an R C Cola. But I got in trouble for that because I got off the school bus to spend that dime and still had to walk 2 miles on home to get my switching. Mom wore the long home made dresses too and I learned early that if I stood real close and screamed real loud, all she did was beat her dress tail. LOL

Speak'n of songs, if I may, how about Roger Millers's "Ya Can't Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd". Only he would come up with a song like that but, yeah, there were many favorites. I've probably got close to 4,000+ on my favorites list.
And of favorite memories, why I remember this one I'll never know. But as a young boy one of my older sisters took me to town for something and we stopped at the drugstore and she bought me a Cherry Coke. Such a wonderful, sweet flavor! "Drug stores" then, now nothing but WalGreens or Super D's with no soda fountain.(it's 1:12 A.M., better go!)
Your ID and post about that song, reminds me of Ray Stevens "Mississippi Squirrel Revival". I remember some church services and can visually see the people and where they sat and can easily imagine such an event. LOL

I think I will go make some hot biscuits with homemade blackberry jam, fried potatoes, and eggs. Nope, your grandma probably never broke the yolk in the cast iron skillets because the eggs were always fresh. When one gets store bought eggs, they can easily be 2 to 3 weeks old and yolks are more pale and more easily broken. Good Day folks, I have chores here plus I need to go into town.

Tomato help---
All my tomatoes are coming in. I've canned, sun dried and gave some away but still there are more. Any ideas of some different ways to put them up or use them?

Take them to a local food pantry? That would be a nice gesture and so many would appreciate having them. Or have you ever pickled the green ones? They're SO good pickled with some sweet onions!! You can also lightly blanch, peel and then freeze them in ziploc baggies to cook with before you start in on using your canned ones.. Or try your hand at homemade tomato juice?

:)

It surely is a pretty day, Roaming. I had my coffee out on the porch this morning and the Hummingbirds were already out, albeit moving a little slow yet, hehe! Even had a little squirrel come up and start chattering at me.
(I threw it a corner of my toast. That seemed to satisfy it somewhat, lol)

I hope you're feeling better and your broken heart is healing a bit. Things like that never go away completely, but we learn to deal with the loss of our loved ones somehow. It's how the Lord made us I guess..

Thanks! I have taken many to the elderly people in my neighborhood. They were so glad to get them and many said they looked forward to a good mater' sandwich. I inquired and found out that was bread, mayo and tomato. I did freeze some but will try the tomato juice (I like that). Someone suggested tomato jelly (never heard of that). Again thanks!

Yes, they were fresh eggs. But she'd crack a dozen or more in that skillet at one time and could still manage to flip 'em like a pro, LOL! When she cooked breakfast, that meal was just as huge as her suppers were. And we'd always have fried squirrel, rabbit or smokehouse ham/bacon on the side too. Whatever my Grandpa provided for meat, she was prone to cook for any meal she made. Even a plate of fried chicken wasn't an oddity for breakfast with her eggs, biscuits, gravy and such.. I don't think she knew how to cook 'small'. It may have been due to not having much when my Mom and her siblings were growing up. I know my Momma told me many times of having nothing but a biscuit and some fried taters to take to school for her lunch back when my Grandpa worked the coal mines. Man, times were so rough for them all back then.

I absolutely love your stories, Ancient Wolf! I wish I could put some of these in a scrapbook, that I could read sometimes. Coal miners, fountain drinks. Still have not had much time to find these songs, but, I will be 'off tune signing soon! Back to the tree. 25 whacks at a time. Pie and coffee breaks, and whatever rolls my way, in between.

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.

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.

Hello, good day. The weather is cheering up thankfully. All this talk of music reminds me of a story I have always wanted to share, but too embarrassed to tell anyone I knew. I took my eldest daughter to see Willy Nelson at the fairgrounds. I don't remember what year but some time in the 80's I believe. We could hear him but never actually saw him as our seats were too far away. We ended up having to leave because people all around us were smoking refer. I do believe my daughter and I were high. I remember it stunk so bad I thought to myself how in the world do people smoke that stuff. I did not anticipate that happening but we did giggle all the way home. I have always wanted to share that story. I hope it gives you all a chuckle. I do enjoy my wine, I'm not a prude. My husband enjoyed his beer an awful lot, tho we never got to enjoy the spirits until the children were grown and gone. Then I realized I should have drank some sooner. Tom T Hall was my favorite back in those days. I like a variety of music, from country to classic but not the screaming noise. Have a good evening all.
Just LOVED that story. What I wouldn't have given to go to a Willy Nelson concert, minus the weed (that's what they call reefers now) Lol. Never got into the spirits....wine gives me heartburn and beer a headache. But I do enjoy one of those fancy frozen drinks once in awhile, if Hubby and I go out to dinner. I enjoy all kinds of music as well, including country, classical, classic rock, and whatever drifts by my ears. I don't like "heavy metal" either, with all the noise and screeching.

Just read through the last several posts and really enjoyed everyone's reminiscing of times gone by!
The present time with getting that tree cut with an axe and shucking all that corn, well, a person's gotta do what a persons gotta do! When a chain saw gives it up at the wrong time THAT is bad. Good luck and hope you get it repaired soon!
I haven't given my hens/chickens and corn husks yet But My chickens went berserk over a watermelon rind! I stood and watched them almost come to blows over that rind! I can understand their action as I love watermelon also!

I'm worried about Abeliever too, I hope she's doing well and posts soon.
Sorry about all the trolling in the past old chap, I sincerely apologize.
Hope you are liking the big country up there in Oklahoma, best wishes to you and yours.

Did yours turn out alright? We sure had enough rain this year they should have big kernels.
