In the Big House...

I can't believe I spent a year in the Hoosgow now! It seems just yesterday that I started this job and this week is my one year anniversary there! Time flies in the Pokey (at least it does when you get to go home each night and not back to a cell with a bunkie nammed Bubba!!!!)

Easy come.Easy go.......

Snagged this really cool looking victorian iron stand for my porch recently. It never made it! I set it out in the driveway to wash it off and mom & dad came by. Mom loved it and wants it for her house! So off to mom's it goes! Sigh. At least I get to visit it!

...while cruising thru that small town looking for shops and auctions,for some reason or another this shop caught my eye while driving by at about 50 mph,hmmmm,I wonder why!

Went auctioning with a friend today. The first one that we hit,that we had found listed on-line,was a real bust,nothing but junk very creatively decribed in the sale bill! So we went out crusing thru small towns looking for shops the browse. Along the way we spotted and auction sign,followed a narrow road forever and found this auction. A good old-fashioned estate sale! Lots of goodies to look at!
Wagons loaded down with boxes and boxes of stuff,old tools,crocks,rusted things,you know,cool stuff!

The only thing I did by was this funky looking oil lamp! Ugly to some people,neat to me!

All in all a great auction to attend,woth the drive to find it!

They are joining forces.....

The houseplants and the yard plants are joining together! When they get strong enough they are going to attack! See how the Wandering Jew,the Heart Ivy and the Arrowhead vine are combining forces with the ground Ivy and the Morning Glories! It's all in their plan! (see below post)

I think I am in danger.....

...of being swallowed up by my garden! I knew this would happen one of these days,the plants are creeping up onto the porch! Anyone remember the SK film "Creepshow"? Especially the segment called "Weeds"? That's gonna happen to me! One of these days I'm gonna be lazing around drunk on the porch and the plants are going to come up and swallow me up!

puddy tats....

My boys are such a joy....sometimes! Then other times They are a real pain in the ass! Had to rescue Harle out of the tree today. I know damn well the little sucker could've got down own his own but got tired of the pitiful "meows" that were directed at me while I was working in the yard! So I relented and rescued his happy ass!

And then there's Homer! You think you get a bad reaction when you wake your spouse up in the middle of a nap! Teeth!!!!

I'm so sorry for my three fans out there that have been reading my blog! I don't know if I mentioned the fact that I work 13 hour shifts. A ral bitch but the up-side is I work 6 thirteens in a row but then I have 6 days off! So as far as posting on my blog there will be stretches that I don't post,I'm working and sleeping and that is about it! So during the times off I have to cram everything in that most people do every day! I got the housework part covered tho by my sign that I have on my front door! I only clean house every other week! Ok,just flipped the TV on,OH WOW a Tim MaGraw concert! Major distraction! Catch ya tomorrow!!!!

Down under.....

Just noticed anothor oddity here in my garden! Last spring I bought a homemade hanger with a coal bucket suspended in it for the yard. I planted YELLOW petunias in it. Well looky at what growed out from the BOTTOM of the bucket! A purple petunia!

Go figure! Must have been a seed lodged in the drain hole from the previous owner! How cool it that! Just goes to show,if it wants to grow,it will grow!!!
