That is great you have squash. I don't care for it unless it's sliced and put in salad.

Beautiful still life photo on black plate.

Speaking of Willie Nelson, did you know he just cut off his braids? It's true -- I saw a photo. Some of his fans are quite upset about it. Hey, it's HIS hair . . . .

Go Lady Trojans!

Hello, I just came across your website. I'm a Petter that grew up in Robinson. My dad is from Abbott, and I have cousins and Aunt and uncle that live in West. My brother hear through the grapevine that the last year's Petter reunion had T-shirts that said "Petterbilt" with the Peterbilt emblem. Any chance of getting a few of those shirts. PS. I still have family in Texas, but I live in South Florida now, so if you have any let me know what postage would be. Thanks you.

yellowdoggranny said...

lance if you'll email me the name of your aunt uncle cousin who ever i'll call them and find out about the tshirts..which sound really cute.my email address is yellowdoggranny@yahoo.com
and by the way the lady trojans are going to state..we're all pumped...first time in school history...hot dang.

I hate squash,eggplant zuccinie (don't even want to know how to spell it) but The Boss loves them all and eats them in front of me just to see the look on my face.
You go ahead and eat all you want.
I'll have to tell The Boss that you get them so early down there and she might want to move. Its just planting time here.
I really like how the school down there manages to teach safe sex to the students using the sports programs.
Go Lady Trojans!

Intense Guy said...

Nice squatch!

That annual Taste of West Luncheon and the fish fry makes West, Texas sound like a place you could go "out" to eat every weekend day - and never go to a restaraunt and always get yummy food.

yellowdoggranny said...

nitty:you've never had it texas style..sliced really thin..battered with corn meal/flour and deep fried..
I think when you get your ss (and i know you will) you should bring her down her for a vacation and she'll fall in love with the place and move here.bring the kids..grandkids..the whole family..ha
there are signs everywhere in town..need to get out and take pictures of all of them.
intense:every week there is a fund raiser or benefit or fish fry or church supper and we have food you wouldn't believe. plus we have cook offs, each bar is always having bbqs, or fish frys, or big dinners ...you won't go hungry here.health food in west is sausage and kraut.
