Memories stuck between the pages of my mind

4 Comments

When I went places with my grandfather, he always stopped on the way back and got us both a strawberry malt. He seemed to know where all the best malt places were. I have a difficult time finding a malt shop these days.

His wife always fed me bananas. Anytime I eat a banana she comes to mind. She would make banana sandwiches. They were banana and Mayo or banana and creamy peanut butter. I recently made one for myself. It was good.

While grocery shopping I saw a bag of mini GooGoo Clusters. My grandfather on my dad’s side liked GooGoo Clusters. He liked Red Skeleton and Laurence Welk. He drove Studebaker cars until he could not buy them any longer. He was a very hard working man with big gnarly, arthritic hands. He always smelled like Ben Gay.

QOTD: “I see that the life of this place is always emerging beyond expectation or prediction or typicality, that it is unique, given to the world minute by minute, only once, never to be repeated. And this is when I see that this life is a miracle, absolutely worth having, absolutely worth saving.
We are alive within mystery, by miracle.”

~ Wendell Berry, “Life is a Miracle: An Essay Against Modern Superstition”

February 1 I left South Montgomery and headed towards Atmore to hang out in the woods.

While getting prepped to leave, the inverter Freedom 458 had an attacked of humming. I panicked, makes several calls, messed with the inverter and then it stopped humming. My current plan is to roll to Atmore, order a replacement, have it shipped here and install it when I return to Montgomery. Keep your fingers crossed.

The night before and I’m in bed at 6 pm.

I bought fuel on the way. I have a 60 gallon tank.

I was running on empty.
I have a nice, peaceful new yard. I’m looking forward to the campfires and bicycle riding as soon as the rain slacks up.
My first visitor. I believe it is an assassin beetle.

QOTD: Many raindrops, trickles, streams, creeks, and rivers contribute to the pool of cosmic consciousness. Each tributary has its own eddies, whirlpools, stagnant backwaters, calm pools and rushing rapids. Where they converge the merging is not always easy. At times there is resistance, turbulence as each tries to have its separate way.

Road Trip Day 14

Waiting on the Uber
My location independent home is where I am. It’s even better when my tribe is there.
Beautiful Christmas flowers adorn the entrance.
A book on the table.

There is one last drive and I’ll be back at WHQ. I look forward to seeing my stuff through different eyes. When I started mejeep after 13 days of sitting idle, it ran a bit rough. Tomorrow will be an adventure of one sort or another.

QOTD: “I invite you to have:

an improbable quest playing at the edge of your imagination: a heroic task that provokes deep thoughts and noble passions even if it incites smoldering torment;

an extravagant dream that’s only slightly farfetched;

a goal that stretches your possibilities and opens your mind;

a wild hope whose pursuit makes you smarter and stronger even if you never fully accomplish it.” ~ Rob Brezsny

My mighty chariot for the next to last leg of the road trip. It’s my first hybrid ride. Enjoyable.
A rare occurrence, my second visit to an Applebees.

I ordered parmesan garlic boneless wings with blue cheese dipping sauce and a diet soda to go. I attempted to add a Bloody Mary. The waitress said, “I can’t do that. This is Alabama.” Sweet Home Alabama 😂😂😂😂😂

The front sidewalk at the Best Western.

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time.

QOTD: “Many of us are essentially asleep, even as we walk around in broad daylight. We’re so focused on the restless narratives and repetitive fantasies unfurling in our heads that we only dimly perceive the larger story raging in all of its chaotic beauty around us.” ~ Rob Brezsny

Fermented Cucumbers

Leave a comment

I’m trying something new. Go me! Hopefully I’m fermenting cucumbers.

Day 1
Day 2
Day 2 lots of bubbles.
Day 3
Day 3 – I tasted one today. I think I added too much salt. It tasted better after I rinsed off the salt.
Day 4

These are too salty for me. I’ll try another batch using less salt. Other than the salt this was crisp, spicy and garlicky.

QOTD: Stay curious.

1. Here is a little challenge from Rob Brezsny. “See how much fun you can have by telling the lush, pulsating, up-to-the-minute truth with kindness and elegance.”

2. The Squire stocked up on Mac-n-cheese today.

3. Last weekend I was totally sucked into a Merge Dragons app event. I did the best I’ve ever done. I completed all the quests but one. Go me! hahahaha
