1. “Throw a small treasure into your holy river as an offering. Find a holy sidewalk to walk on, praise the holiness in a bus driver, kiss a holy tree, and shop at a holy store.” ~ Rob Brezsny
It’s all holy.
It’s all sacred.

2.

I found a place to get an oil change, Prattville Auto & RV. They are covered up with work. There are 9 rigs outside that I can see without getting up. The shop was full too.

3. While getting the oil change at Prattville Auto & RV, I was informed that my main drive belt is on its last legs. I think the most efficient solution is to have Down South Roadside Diesel Repair send out a tech. They charge $95 an hour. That is less than the shops I called.

I appreciate you. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. That means a lot to me. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE.

1. Birdie’s pimento cheeses: Smoked Gouda and Roasted Red Pepper, Garlic Parmesan, Jalapeño, and Classic are flavors I tried out. Most excellent.

2. The Botanica is a cool house plant shop in Birmingham AL.

3. Artifice World
I can’t explain. You need to look at the site for yourself.

4. Homemade Pimento Cheese
My dad used to make pimento cheese. Seemed easy. I gave it a go: 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese, one small jar diced pimentos, 4 ounces of chunky blue cheese dressing, garlic powder, and mayonnaise to suit you. I probably used 4 tablespoons. Delicious!

No wonder the south is missing out on the future.

I truly appreciate all of you. Thank you so much for your visits, likes, and comments. You make my life better. I hope I bring a smile to your heart.

1. Something to say to a newborn, “Welcome to the labyrinth.”

2. I’m beginning a new chapter in my medical history, orthopedics. My knee is not 100%. I having it looked at on Friday. After the appointment I’m headed to the Golden Temple for lunch and metaphysical shopping. More to follow.

3. The orthopedic surgeon’s verdict was arthritis. I got a shot in the knee. That was not bad at all. He told me to take 2 Aleve each day and come back in three weeks. So far not so bad. The shot has stopped the pain.

QOTD: The truth is fluid, slippery, vagrant, scrambled, promiscuous, kaleidoscopic, and outrageously abundant. And yet it’s worth trying to corral! ~ Rob Brezsny

Bread Lines

It was 2021. The pandemic was in a lull. Folks were feeling brave and coming back outside.

The hungry ones queued up. The bread lines were long and slow in those days.

The bread and pastries are delicious.

1. The Barefoot Belle survived 2020. I got fresh yard eggs and picked this morning strawberries. I need to return before I leave the area.

2. I like Jeff Bridges’ website. I just learned about it this month. I also like the movie The Great Lebowski. I’m such a big fan I became a Dudeist Priest.

3. Intermittent fasting has been around a long time but it’s new to me. I’m trying out the 16:8 plan (16 fasting hours cycled by 8 non-fasting hours. I’m not sure if it’s a keeper. I’ll keep it up a month or so and then decide.

Inspiration: Every morning when I wake my mind begins telling stories. I can let it flit about like a fly; landing on good stuff or nasty stuff or I can direct the story to uplifting, creative, and inspiring thoughts and actions. Each morning I can select the story I tell myself. Today I started my story with a long walk. I listened to Alan Watts. And practiced “Enjoy the view. There is nothing else to do”. What story will you pick?

I truly appreciate all of you. Thank you so much for your visits, likes, and comments. You make my life better. I hope I bring a smile to your heart.
