Hey Al, My (wife) apple trees are blooming. They dropped their leaves weeks ago.What up with that ?

All the orchards around here are just starting to pick. And the trees still have their leaves.

My Jonathons are always early here and the other varieties still getting bigger and not red yet a-tall, if you don't count the wormy red ones on the ground/bucket.

My wife got an Instapot. She saw a recipe for apple cobbler, but she's afraid to use the pot. Its been sitting on the dining room table for 2 weeks now unused.

It is very safe nothing the old pressure cooker. My friend uses his almost every day. I want one but I am too cheap to buy one.

Have you been practicing your Naruto run?


To respond to your query: I think potential participants have been warned by enough agencies, numerous times, that if they actually Naruto charge the base, and catch some high speed projectiles, they'll have no one to blame but their parents, for not raising them right.

Run on sentence over. Supper is ready.

Salad followed by pasguetti and meatballs.

Sounds like a perfect terminus, for those who would be other than donut holes.

I've actually been looking into this.

If a large number were to Naruto run to the aliens at Area 51, they'd have to cover tens of miles of barren desert, occupied mostly by things that are prickly.

Then they'd meet the 'Camo Guys'. These are govt contract security that, you guessed it, dress in Camo.

These guys would employ various degrees of pain on the trespassers.

Up to, and including live fire.

I'd wager there is some kind of anti-drone weapon thingie. Not sure what that would look like?

The good news is that I doubt anyone would be so incredibly stupid.

Whot's hard to get past is why no one has come forward to save the mudbugs from being drowned by Imelda.. and then I wonder if the name itself wasn't some kinda shoe-in perpetrated by weather weasels, but I prolly should skirt that issue at a respectable length & go back to wondering if the taste of mud bugs changes significantly if they were drowned in a fresh water drench vs. an old ™Speed Queen wash tub filled w/crab boil, broken ears of corn, taters, unyawns & stirred w/a paddle that prolly was used prior, to get a gator's attention or keep a moccasin out of the pirogue.

As GF so astutely mentioned prior; no tellin' where some folks' taste comes from.

Even had those drums turned and the problem was still there. No problems on the 20 miles so far. my back hurts.
I did a brake job on my grandmother's Ford Taurus and had the drums turned. After that the rears always clunked so my dad and I removed them bolted them on backwards, checked the braking surface with a dial indicator and they were way out of round. We returned them to the parts house and bought a new set and the clunking went away.

Using 'chinery from former times correctly is fast becoming a lost art. The times, they are a 'changing.. and it isn't always for the better. OTOH, I can well remember trying to remove the brake drum on a '41 Ford Club Coupe when a yute and leaving a large pacific puller on it under all the tension I could muster.. and then later in the night hearing a VERY loud bang that woke the 'rents. It had finally let go, but was on that taper.. like a barnacle.

I don't think the crawfish are going to mind the rain. Not at all.

The ones that clunked were the best quality parts from a top name USA supplier. They were turned also still had a clunk. I just swapped with a known good set on the wife old Jeep.
