I'm Not Sure Where All This Came From, But....

Hey y'all, it's me!

It's Sunday afternoon, and I'm not even out of my pjs. I even threw on a hoodie and drove to the library to sit in my car to upload my latest video. I do at least have the dishwasher going, but notta lotta else.

In my last post I put the first of a series of videos I have started making, which I am calling Shakespeare For Rednecks. I thought it would just be one video, which was inspired by my Confederate skull, 'Bubba'. I just picked him up and did a Redneck version of the grave scene in Macbeth. That was it, just one itty bitty video for laughs. I was done. Finished. Moving on.

Then my brain got its own ideas...

The next play I did was Romeo & Juliette.


And of course, I can't forget my favorite play of all time, The Taming of the Shrew.


Oh yeah, there's a few more coming...I think there may be two for Richard III, and I am certain that a scene from Much Ado About Nothing is waiting in the wings.

While I do love Shake…

More Parodies, And My Own Humble Efforts To Make People Smile..

Hey y'all, it's me!

Hope everyone is doing fine. I'm good, except for a sore shoulder from all the outdoor work I've been doing, and with a little pain medicine, a hot bath with Epsom salts and a little rest, that will too shall pass.

I have posted links to a few of the wonderful parodies that have come about as people turn to creativity to deal with being shut in during the current unpleasantness. I would like to add a couple of links, and present one of my own efforts at making folks smile a little.

First, one of my favorite social commentary fellas, Chad Prather, posted this little gem last night.




Now, I still haven't come up with a good parody for this time, however I did have an idea for a video. Hope you like it.

Keeping Busy, More Parodies, And An Absolutely AMAZING Song By Chris Mann

Hey y'all, it's me!

I hope everyone is keeping safe during the current unpleasantness. I am praying for you.

I have been working on a lot of projects, including building a new fence to keep my old rescue horse, Bandy, out of my garden. I mean, I love the old dude, but he ain't getting into my tomatoes, dig?

Yesterday I messed with Obie's head a little, and before you say, "Poor baby", trust me, he had it coming. He has some quirks, due to his condition, and most of the time they are a little annoying, but no big deal. He likes to go in the bathroom and open and close cabinet doors, until I tell him he needs top come out of there. He will still wait a while before he does, however, simply because he knows it makes me NUTS (I have my own quirks).

Well, yesterday morning we had to run some errands, and Obie was in the bathroom, basically being a jerk. I decided that I wasn't going to waste my time, so while he was busy in the bathroom, I quiet…

Hey y'all, it's me!

I have been having a heck of a time getting on the internet at my house the past few days, what with the number of folks who are home and on the system more than usual. I finally had to come up to the library parking lot and type of this post while sitting in my car.

Things are going well here in Bowie. As of now there is no stay at home order, but many people are voluntarily self quarantining, and I have decided that for now, Obie and I will limit our venturing out into public. Since we're in our car and only one other person is in the library parking lot in their vehicle, we're good. Yes, I will still be irreverent about this situation, and I will laugh at the craziness, however I am well aware that this is a serious situation, and I will take every precaution to protect myself and my family.

I have been getting a lot done during this time, and I have realized just how much we have been away from home unnecessarily. All the things …

Hey y'all, it's me!

I couldn't believe I hadn't posted in a month. I got busy getting caught up on all the things I neglected while I was sick, and then all the craziness happened, which threw me into overdrive. I had just restocked our toilet paper supplies in a normal stocking up trip (5 packages of 12, which will, with my using 'family cloths', last the Redneck and Obie for months), literally 3 days before everyone lost their minds. I have been doing little trips to the store to grab a few extras now and then. I did stock up on dog and cat food, plus making sure I have enough litter to keep the two little heathens happy.

The ketogenic diet we had been on for months is off the table until further notice, due to it being difficult to stock a pantry with keto friendly foods at this time. We are, however, still keeping our carbs low, and the ones we are eating are as high quality as I can get...except for the giant Hershey bar I have stashed safe…

Money Saving Adventures For Last Week--2-23-2020

Hey y'all, yep, it's me!

I am happy to report that our family is FINALLY past the illness that has plagued us since late January. I still have a little bit of junk in my chest, but it's clearing up fast.

Also, I want to announce....


WHOOPEE DEE, I'M TURNING 63!!!!!!!!!!!

That's right, this month I will be turning 63 years old, and I think that is so freaking cool. Honestly, I don't think I actually became interesting until I hit 40. My 50s were awesome, as I homesteaded in the mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma for several years. I laughed when people said, "But you are 50, why would you want to start something this hard?"

Oh hell, why not? I mean, it's like when people start college at a later time in life, and people tell them that they will be whatever age when they graduate. Face it, you're gonna be that age anyways, why not have a degree when you do?

Okay, let's get on to some money saving adventures for last week.

Slowly Creeping Up On Wellness--Some Random Updates

February 13, 2020

Hey y'all, it's me.

After over 3 weeks of whatever the heck this 'crud' is, I seem to be getting well. I was able to track down a local essential oil dealer who sells Thieves Oil, and then I purchased two extra diffusers. I have been putting one by Obie's bed, one on my side of the bed and one on the Redneck's side the past few nights, with water and Thieves Oil in them. I run them while we sleep, and FINALLY we are seeing results. I have still been waking up tired, but feeling more like myself again. Obie is doing much better, and the Redneck seems to be able to cough up and get rid of all the junk in his chest. Monday we will see our chiropractor again, and hopefully that will help to put an end to rest of this mess.

Now I have the unenviable task of putting this house back together. I think the worst part of being ill is the day you wake up and look around your house and think--who broke in here and trashed the joint? Even with keeping up …
