Pecans, Pecans Everywhere And The Squirrels Are Going Mad !

It's crazy outside right now. Why you may ask, my minions? Well tis the season for pecans to fall and drive the squirrels crazy. Yeppers!! The wind is blowing hard, knocking the pecans off the trees in our yard and the poor little fuzzies are running around trying to get as many pecans as they can before they all get picked up by the humans.

My puppies don't help in the matter either. They are constantly chasing the squirrels and keeping them from their gathering. I'm a bad person for letting the dogs out all day. I wonder what happens if they don't meet their quota?  Do they get yelled at by Mrs. Squirrel?

Mrs. Squirrel: What are you doing, you lazy good for nothing!?!!
Mr. Squirrel:  But the dogs, my love.
Mrs. Squirrel: Dogs, Shmogs !!!  Get busy and get to gatherin those nuts. We don't have all autumn, ya know!! Mother told me not to marry you!!  I should have listened to her and married that squirrel down the street!!

Great Genes

I was laughing this morning when I heard the news. Ozzy Osbourne had some of his blood sent off to a lab in New Jersey to be analyzed. Yep they want to see what makes the Oz tick.

Seem they found out a few things about him. He has an "unusual variant" in his genes. Yes they unlocked his genetic code. It has helped him break down the alcohol and drugs that he has put into his system over the years. But there is one thing he can't do.

It turns our that he is not only related to The Neanderthals, but also a distant relative of outlaw Jesse James, the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II and King George I.  He is said to also have  ancient Roman ancestors who were killed in Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. 

Osbourne said: “That means I’m also probably related to some of the survivors, which makes a lot of sense.
“If any of the Roman Osbournes drank nearly as much as I used to, they wouldn’t have even felt the lava. They could have just walked it off.” 

So fortunately he did not sell his soul to the Devil as many Christians think. Even though he is called the Prince of Darkness. He just has great genes. So with this I leave you my minions and ye olde headbangers like me with The Oz.

ET Take Me With You!!!

Hey, did you hear the great news this morning? We don't have to finish packing for the end of the world. Yeppers!! It's not going to end on Dec 12, 2012 like they said it would.

Nope, seems that the scientists were wrong in their evaluation of the Mayan Calender. Like maybe 50 to 100 years, so they say. Personally I think it all ended on Dec 31, 1979 when disco died.

So my thoughts are. If the world isn't going to end in a couple of years like we thought ... then why are we seeing so many UFO sightings.

I mean, is this all a ploy by the aliens to keep us from going with them? They are finished fiddling around with us and don't want us to pack up the whole planet and take it with us.

Like they don't want us cause we're Intergalactic Trailer Trash?

" Oh man, there goes the galaxy!"

" NO! you cannot put that deer head on the front of my space ship!!"

Holy Guacamole I Got Three In One Shot

Wow I was informed by Willow at Confessions of a Country Witch that she gave me 3, count em THREE awards in one. WOW!!!  You really, really like me LOTS!!  ahahahahahaaaa!!!
With this comes some hefty stuff that I gotta do.

First, I have to thank the one that gave me the awards. Thank you so much Willow Silverhorse.  I love awards. Yeppers, I really do.

Second, I have to tell 7 lies things about myself, but I'm cutting it down to 3 maybe 4.
* I love making lists of things I need to do. Then I don't follow through. Strange I know, but then I'm also certifiably crazy too. Yeppers I'm on a day pass.
* I'm a gadget fanatic. I love gadgets, be it electronic or kitchen, if it's a gadget then it has my full attention.
* I hated writing when I was in school. But now I just can't stop.
* I'm a pen clepto. I steal pens but they have to be unique in some way. But bright, shiny, and red will suffice.

Okay now Willow has it that I need to pass these awards to 15 other new or used and abused bloggers. That's a bit much. If I send this out to 15 bloggers then who will they send it to? SO. I am cutting this down to 3 maybe 4 bloggers.
* Vanessa over at Fanciful Twist has a delightful blog with great photos. The woman was born in the wrong era.
* Whisperingwriter at Airing My Dirty Laundry One Sock At a Time I love when she writes with pictures of her precious little girl, Natalie. You rock SITstah.
*Kalynn at Kacklin' with Kalynn and her haunted car trunk.
* Natalee at Raising Normal Kids she's another SITstah that makes me laugh.
Everyone on my hit list has been contacted. So pass it on to those that deserve to be abused or whatever.

Where In The World Is Leeanna

Seguin Dam, Guadalupe River
Everyone, Well not everyone, more like a few of you who don't really know me, have been wondering where in the hell do I live. Well Texas of coarse.
  But where??? Oh hell It's in Seguin Texas my dear minions. Seguin is pronounced Sah-geen. The town used to be called Walnut Springs but they changed it to Seguin in honor of Col. Juan Seguin the man who ran for help for the Alamo. Seguin is one of the oldest towns, settled in 1838 by Frontier Rangers. It's a small town of about 21,000 give or take a few with the Guadalupe river running through it. We are also a college town for Texas Lutheran Univ. We are the County seat for Guadalupe county and just outside of San Antonio. We are just off I-10 highway between San Antonio and Houston.
David and I are crazy weekenders that love to ride around, sometimes with the dogs. Our favorite haunts are New Braunfels which is a small German styled town, also I used to work there at their hospital. NB is about 13 miles from us. San Marcos is a small college town. Home of Southwest College. We can take the scenic route up there through the Hill Country. It's so darned pretty. Then we also like to take the real country road from San Marcos to Luling. It's home of the Luling sausages and Watermelon Thump. They say it smells of money... it's just the oil wells pumping. Nasty smell!!
So now you know where I live. Are ya happy now? ;P

Happy B-Day My Love

David, the love of my life, hubby/plaything, and my target for laughter is celebrating his birthday today. Yes, he made another trip around the sun, minus a small piece of his index finger on his right hand this past summer. See past posts for full stories. Stubby/hubby/plaything turned 57. Yeah he's ancient but what can I say, someone has to take care of him. If he's not trying to flood the house or electrocute himself by changing a light bulb or cutting off appendages with a table saw... I just have to keep my eye on him when he's home.
He took the day off from the office so that means I need to watch him. I should train the puppies to do that. To alert me if he gets to doing something that might be dangerous...

Spunky: Woof woof woof!!!
Me: Whats that boy? Daddy's down the well?
Spunky: Woof!
Me: And he's got the table saw with him??!?
Spunky: WOOF!! WOOF!!
Me: And he's changing a light bulb down there??
Spunky: WOOF!
Me: Timmy's with him?
Spunky: WOOF!
Me:  And Lassie too??

Potato Corn Chowder

It's that time of the year when days are starting to cool and nights are cold and foggy here in my part of South Texas. I make this only twice in Autumn. Hey, that's all I can handle. My mom used to make this around the last part of September. I have to say... Sorry mom but mine is better. This recipe makes enough to feed an army 8 to 10.

Potato Corn Chowder                              Serves 8 -10

*Large bag Ore-Ida Southern Style Hash Browns
*1 large sweet yellow onion, minced
*1 lb. bacon, slightly frozen, (NOT the maple or smoked )sliced thin, like bacon bits.
*2 cans 12 oz. each Carnation Evaporated milk
*3 cans 15 oz. each creamed corn
*1 cup celery leaves, minced
*Salt and pepper to taste

Take a large stock pot and throw the Ore-Ida Hash Browns into it. Add water til it covers the potatoes. Add the celery leaves and a little salt and pepper and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Slice the half frozen pound of bacon thinly into bacon bit pieces. Then take a large skillet and fry the onions and bacon bits until done. Don't burn them. Drain the onion bacon mix on a large paper towel and set aside. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease.
When the potatoes are very soft, add creamed corn, bacon and onions, 2 tablespoons of bacon grease, and milk to the stock pot. Bring the whole thing to a simmer for 30 minutes. This will be slightly sweet from the corn. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with a crusty hard bread on the side.
*Special Note* Try to make this when hubby and / or kids are not around. They tend to pilfer the cooked bacon bits.

Tangled aka Rapunzel

The last Disney cartoon movie I saw at a theater was 101 Dalmatians when I was a kid. I haven't seen one in the movie theaters since. But this time I just might go check out the cutsie new Disney movie called Tangled. I like it, the kids are probably gonna like it. It's got a lot of funny moments, mainly involving the horse. Flynn, getting a good whap upside the head with an iron frying pan made me laugh.
The movie comes out in 3D on November 24th, yep Thanksgiving. Watch the trailer.

What Next??! Relatives??

Who hath sent this plague upon thee? First it's squirrels, then roaches, now my relatives snakes?!! What did I do to deserve this my minions? I'm a good girl, I am!

Yesterday, the reason why I wasn't posting, because I try to be faithful to you my minions and post everyday, or I'll lose you all to others.... well you know. Anywho, I had to go outside and try to get this snake that was terrorizing my Bostons. I know, I know. What in the hell could terrorize a Boston Terrorist besides a squirrel, you may ask? A Coral snake. YES!!! One of my family members. You know the saying, "Red to yellow, kill a fellow; red to black, venom lack "  A pretty little deadly Coral snake was slithering into my yard and the puppies wanted to play with it. Actually Spunky alerted me to it when I was taking out the trash. I saw it moving in the grass near the walkway David built out of bricks and I immediately called them into the house. But you know dogs they like to play with deadly things so I had to bribe them by giving them some chicken I had chopped up for some homemade penicillin chicken soup. They came romping into the house and I gave them the bits of chicken. Then I grabbed my pellet gun and ran outside to kill the snake but it was faster. It slithered into a hole near the gas meter pipe that leads under the house. SHIT!!  Now I'd have to stay outside when the dogs have to go, off and on all day long. What a way to spend the day. It was pretty much shot.

This kind of snake wasn't coming out until dark but you never know if it was hungry or not and where there is one there are others. So I called my neighbors to warn them. My neighbor 2 houses down from us said he killed one this morning he found under some bricks he was going to use. Everyone else was on alert.

I decided to tape my  flashlight to my Luger pellet gun and wait until morning to get the little bugger. My patience paid off. About 3 am this morning I got dressed and crept outside with my gun and killed it.  It was in my garden looking for something to eat obviously. I won't gore you with the nasty details or put pictures of it on my page cause I felt sorry for killing such a pretty animal. It was only doing what it does naturally.  I wasn't going to take any chances on getting bit,  not with my luck. So now you know how I spent my day yesterday.

Bionic Nose

Happy Halloween month my delightful minions. The weather is changing, cool mornings and nights and warm days. I love this time of the year! The colors, the fun stuff to do, everything about Autumn is fun. The most fun holiday of the year is coming very soon now and I can't wait.

But there is one thing I hate. It's the bugs. Every year about this time when the weather changes, the bugs are coming inside for warmth. David generally sprays inside and out around the house and shed with bug spray to keep the bugs in check but there are a few who make it into the house only to die shortly after entering. Because we live near the river, we have a large problem with roaches.I hate them. They are nasty, ugly little disease carriers. The fact that I can even smell them freaks David out. He said there is no such thing as a roach having an odor. But my minions I have a bionic nose. I can smell the nasty little rascals before they appear.  They smell like wet, moldy cardboard. When I say there is a roach here in a closet it appears the next day, dead on the floor. Weird, I know. From what I understand from my friends. They can't smell roaches and never have. I guess it's one of those quarks about me.

Well there is something else I found out. Roaches carry weapons. Yesterday, I saw a roach outside running through the garden. As soon as he hit the warm sunshine he flipped on his back and all this stuff started flying from it's legs. I grabbed my glasses and went to get a look see and I saw 2 guns 3 knives and a set of brass knuckles. This little varment was packing!! I asked David about it later when he got back from Home Desperate Depot and he said He had seen it too. In fact Pebbles disarmed one near the kitchen back door as it was breaking and entering. It was on it's back yelling "I cut you"!!! He said it was wearing a green bandanna and swinging a knife at her. I guess gangs are getting really desperate in their recruits.
