Babs emailed me this morning to remind me that it was THE DAY. Yupper, the day the ladies of Bold Springs Baptist Church make their cheesebugga's...So I zipped by Community Grocery and snagged me 2 Dublin Dr Peppers and then drove the 5 blocks or so to BSBC and parked in front of the No Dogs Allowed sign and chuggged my ass into the Church's center. Was in such a rush I rushed right by the lady that takes the money...She laughed and said I don't think I've ever seen anyone in such a hurry...since the last time you were here. $7 for 2 great cheesebugga's...Mine with the works and Babs dry with lettuce..Took it over to Babs and we had lunch together then sat out in front of her apt. and watched Bandit silently beg for bones, treats, scraps, etc. Fattest little beggar you've ever seen. Then we watched Tina T. ...she is a character..Babs didn't let her out for the longest time, and now that she's had a taste of freedom, she's all over the place...when Babs was walking me back to the truck Tina went up the tree in the front by the roof and yes...she got on the roof and went from one end of the apts. to the other...I thought for sure we were going to have to get a ladder to get her down, but she figured out (with some coaching by Babs) how to get back to the tree and come down. I'm telling you...she has no fear..She was named well..Tina Turner would be proud.
This morning I planted seeds in my little pots..2 rows of parsley, 2 rows of yellow squash, 2 rows of zucinni and 2 rows of eggplants. I also planted about 8 okra seeds too. I was over at BuzzardBilly's and she was showing all the seeds of 'maters she was going to plant..Oh my Goddess, what a treasure hold of tomatoes...I've never seen such terrific tomatoes...I mean really..unfecking believable..
So what else..oh..had a cool weekend..One of the kids that used to hang with my kids when they were teens and is like one of my own kids just got out of Federal Prison..seems like they frown on making your own speed...or at least being in possession of 532 packages of sudafeds...ha..I say kid, but he's not a kid any more..He's 39..and has learned his lesson. He'll be officially out of the half way house on Juneteenth..Which if you live in Texas is a African American Holiday. It's when the white folk of Texas decided to tell the black folk of Texas 'oh incidentally...y'all is free now'...2 years after they were actually set free..So on June 19th, it's a big celebration ...Lots of Big Red's are consumed..So Mike will be able to go about and be a free person, except for 3 years of probation. This past weekend is the first weekend he got to spend at home here in West at his Dad's house. So I made him a pecan pie to take back with him to the half way house..Got to spend some great quality time with him. He's a good person...just made a mistake and paid for it..His birthday and my daughter MOJO's birthday are on the same day and for years and years they have celebrated their birthday's together. Mojo said when she moved to San Francisco that celebrating her birthday was just not the same with out Mike there to celebrate it with her.
Saturday while I was out finding boxes for the books at the library and trying to unload all them fecking Texas Highway magazines I ran into Inky's big brother Mike..you remember, the Heart of Texas Snake Handler? The one that kisses cobras? Any how he's back from Arizona and I got to see him, and that was terrific..Hadn't seen him in a year...So got to see 2 friends I haven't seen in over a year and that's a good thing. Also got to see Inky's wife Anessa and kid Devin...I haven't seen Devin in about 4 months and holy shit..The kid is damn near 6 feet tall and he's only 14 years old...I asked Anessa how the other two boys were and she said one's in trouble and one's in jail...So things haven't changed on that front...sigh*..Damn I'm glad I don't have to raise a kid today. There is nothing for them to do but get into trouble..Especially in West.
Well, I've run out of bullshit, so guess it's time to go finish reading my Scarpetta book...It's hard reading..usually I really enjoy her books, but this one is not doing it for me. Besides I think I'm ready for a nap after the BSBC cheesebugga...y'all come back and see me y'hea?
I tried to down load some pictures of the snake round up but blogger is fucking with me..so will do them at a later date..
