Guess I'll put the names in a hat and draw fer the Rose Water or Orange Flower Water tonight! Post the winner on the morrow...
Thank'ee all donkey frens who've played...
Now, someone was asking about the marshmallow microwave popcorn. It's by Jolly Time Popcorn. Remember them, way back and beyond? Of course ye don't, none of ye gals (and guys) are 450 years old, like I am. Danged if I wasn't at the store today and forgot to get more AGAIN.
Snails ate my Hubbard Squash that had sprouted. Saw three of the darlings just finishing off the last of the stem. The nerve! Of course, can't kill 'em, just had to move them over to the mint. Here, eat some of THAT. Have lovely fresh snail breath, pseudopodia frens.
I'm gittin' in a mood.
The quote today is from a horrid poem we had to recite in sixth grade. I despised the line about the poor snails, forever gittin' stuck. Later I found that this poem is really quite awful, but that didn't surprise me, seein' as how it was part of the curriculum in a wretched Louisiana school where I don't think I ever encountered a sober teacher. We even had to say a bad, bad word in one of the stanzas, but I'll spare ye, lil' frens.
"The year's at the spring,
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hill-side's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in his Heaven -
All's right with the world!"
~ Robert Browning
