    Me too!
    I’d love to attend the reading to hear the voice of Chet and do some whale watching afterwards.

    Good morning all.

    It is 4 degrees below freezing but for the next week the forecast is all temperatures above freezing. Hooray!

    Wow…wish I could be there! Jim Frangione, as I’ve said before, really is the perfect voice for the books. When’s the next one, huh? When when when when?

    HOH: Yes! Sunny and nearly 70 degrees right now. Later in the p.m. temperatures are expected to reach 77.

    Today is husband’s sibling lunch day — near the Twin Cities. Youngest brother will be 60 next week. All six sibs are able to attend. How lucky is that?!

    Staff! The Twins won their first game of the season last night. As someone on the blog says, “Woo and Hoo!” Or is it “Whoo”?

    I know Linda. Sniff we were too meloncholy to rejoice. It seems like too little too late and there are 152 games left in the season.

    Sob. On a happier note, it rained last night. All of a sudden the brown winter grass has this sort of different color. It is hard to explain it…

    Maybe it is green?

    Staff, we have a complaint…the Chattanooga Outlooks are a Double A farm team for the Twinsies. Last year they were the Southern League champs. This year they are 3 and 6 and are in the cellar. Wuz up?

    I have been to Rothsay, MN. The Prairie Chicken capitol of the world. There is a 40 foot high Prairie Chicken right across from the truck stop with the good restaurant. I have never seen a real Prairie Chicken though. These guys are cool. The low woo woo sound they make is sometimes described as booming. Nice!

  15. Staff
    11:09 am on April 16th, 2016

    HOH, Did the Outlooks trade up some players to the Rockies? I hear the Rockies have a really great new young shortstop this year.

    I want a prairie chicken or I’m going to be in a very bad mood. Their population is way down according to the Wikipedia article:

    “Central Wisconsin is home to approximately 600 individuals, down from 55,000 when hunting was prohibited in 1954.”

    The human being has a lot to answer for.

    Here is a link to the article:

    Good morning all. Wish I could go to the library and hear them. How cool would that be!

    Staff, love the Prairie Chicken video. I assume that is a dance they do to attract hens?

    Have had my humming bird feeder up for a week and haven’t seen a single hummer so far. I thought they were usually in northern Illinois about the first or second week in May.

    Rio’s friend has a lot of celebrating to do before she can catch up with my sister, Sally. We joke that she doesn’t have a birth-day, but rather a birth-month. Her b-day was 3/25 and on Thursday she said she was going out with two girlfriends for her birthday dinner. She started around mid March and is still going!She holds herself in high regard!

    Rio, when all else fails grilled cheese sandwich and cream of tomato soup. May not be a birthday feast but it’s good comfort food!
    Staff I think part of the change from the Dodgers to the Twins may have involved some of the younger players moving up. After all they were dodger trained.

    Rockies!…At least there is a Rockies game starting right now!…snort!…They will be playing the Cubs again. Yesterday they beat the Cubs…heh!heh!….Now remember, the Cubbies are the team to watch this year according to Admin…wuffle!chuffle!…He predicts they will be in the World Series….snort!

    Every time we look up at the 2016 Plunderer calendar and see the Howlers, especially Kat and the Donut, we grin. But we wonder is Zeus was busy cleaning the stove when the fotos were being taken.

    Sausage and chicken gumbo simmering here. Should be enough to go around. Mom has never figured out how to make soups, stews, gumbos in anything less than a 5 gallon bucket…HEY, it freezes, people like it and it is great another night.
    Blur on by if y’all would some.

    I am not really sure what a gumbo is. Is is a soup or a stew? I will go to wikipedia and try to figure it out.

    Rio, sniff! Twins! Speaking of Twins they won their second game of the season today. Maybe it is spring.

    It looks like it has to have Okra to be Gumbo. I ate the first Okra of my life while visiting my father at the foster home. Mounier and Suhair, the people who own the house and take care of Dad, are Egyptian. They had Okra in a tomato sauce on their stove one night and gave me a bowl of it. YUM! It was like a vegetable stew using only Okra and spices and tomtoe sauce. I would eat it again.

  39. BearSpiritDog

    Someone Here has not had good experiences with Okra…it was canned…Not Recommended.

    HOH: I love the Oley page too! As for Zeusikov, he is featured on the June 2015 page of the Plunder On! calendar, along with my favorite picture of Kat (on her boat), and our friend Ziber-H. I miss Siber-H and his mom very much…

  41. Staff
    6:46 pm on April 16th, 2016

    Bear, Their Okra was fresh! I believe that makes a world of difference with all vegetables.

    Rose, Yes the O’Howlers page is one of the best. My favorite pages are the first 12!

    Mom usually cooks without okra. She uses weird vegetable blends (sometimes with okra) but usually without. Tonight we are standing at the stove asking for more but mom said we needed to wait till friends burred in and we could have more later when they left. BSD and Staff, lets call it a stoup (stew/soup) over rice. Lots to share and/or freeze for later 🙂

  44. Herd of Hounds
    6:52 pm on April 16th, 2016

    Zeus, you are such a handsome guy. And your eyes…hou make our hearts go giddy up! And we love your lovely black coat 😉

    7:00 pm on April 16th, 2016

    Zeus! Those eyes. Swoon.

    HOH I will agree. It is a Stoup.

    We are having rain here again. The grass is even greener than it was this morning. We have had a really dry winter so this is good for the farmers. It is not a fast rain but a nice soaking rain. Jut what we need.

    If anyone wants to check out my FB page you can see Lily surfing at Lake Geneva today. Water is cold, so she is wearing a wet suit. This is what she wanted to do today to celebrate her 14th birthday. And then out for pizza tonight. I was invited, but don’t like to drive in the dark, so going up for breakfast instead.

    Hi everyone. Mama just dragged herself in from the First Show Of The Season. She looks exhausted, but very, very happy. We think we foresee Slim Jims in the near future.

    We will admit that we have never tried okra. As soon as someone described it as being a “slimy” vegetable, we decided that we could live without it.

    And BeeStover is now needing a Prairie Chicken if she is to not emulate Miss Belle Starr and be in a Very Bad Mood?? Oh my gracious – exactly how long HAVE we been gone from this here blog?

    For those of you with facebookie type accounts, please check out the page for Cyclepottery. (all one word) You will see why.

    Tupper’s Mama: Wow! The break from making pottery seems to have fostered the use of new textures, unusual materials and even more beautiful creations from your talented hands.

    T&G , okra is a slimy veg until you batter it all up with cornmeal and fry the heck out of it. Yummmm

    Love the pottery, especially the lizards.

    So great grandchild to come on Labor Day this year (River Carpenter’s little sibling) is indeed a boy! We did FaceTime and watched the ceremony. Rob could not stop grinning.
