Seems like Arby's used to ....

 

I ended up making lasagna with chicken as "meat" in it. The local store was waiting for deliveries, so, I went with what I had... bird.

I used thighs. Stewed them in red sauce until the meat fell off the bone.

I was visiting fam in Indiana. Telling my BIL II was planning on stopping in MO to do some fishing. He cautioned me about the hill folk. I mulled that over a few and laughed.... I am a "hill folk".

We don’t live all that far from MO “hill folk”. Stay on the periphery and you’re good. Heading deeper into the hills, hearing banjos in the distance is the first clue you’ve gone far enough. You’re pretty much on your own after that -

Mornin' All

A damp weekend. It drizzled for 2 days. We got ~3/4in. The foghorns are sounding this AM. It was a warm rain. Lows in the mid 50's [F].

 

tis the season....

Wife stopped at the store on her way home from church yesterday. She came home with a dozen FRESH/still warm tamales. They were great. I say "tis the season" because this is tamale season. Making them is a family activity...well--- the women, gather and have a hen party while they are making tamales.

 

The road to Arivaca was closed for 12 hrs...overnight. Details are lacking, but, we were told there was a fatal shooting [officer involved] and wreck. They stopped all traffic while they brought people from Phoenix down to investigate. Sounds like a failed smuggling attempt to me. Nothing on the news... we aren't that important out here.

yep.. real tamales... wrapped in corn husks

 

when we first moved here, 50 years+ ago, I saw corn husks for sale at the grocery. Being from the midwest and not knowing about tamales, beyond Hot Tamale candy, I thought that was about the most obsurd thing I had ever seen.

Took my little boys up to the local castle to see Santa this weekend.3111AD55-B474-4EAD-B01E-E9CEB0509B22.thumb.jpeg.df019505e91b0682ac1a3a0826d041a8.jpeg

 

And I finally got enough courage to cut into the large top pieces for the altar rail.

My chop saw has a 22.5° detent but it’s not near large enough for the rail pieces we are using. So I laid it out and measured three or four times and then cut the miters by hand.

I *think* it came out okay measurement wise. I’ll know once I get the pieces over to the garage where we have the base pieces stored and we see if they match up.

I started getting some finish on the longest piece.

As suspected, the cherry soaked up any stain pretty unevenly, even with a pre soak in some conditioner.

I ended up getting some polyurethane with some tint in it which I normally stay away from, but it looks like rolling on a coat or two will even things out enough and we can still see some wood grain.F722DE5A-CD3C-4E90-ABC6-B47153A99142.thumb.jpeg.d6cef126df79183b6a8a3e923a06e446.jpeg

That's going to look great when it's finished.  It'll alllll fit like a glove me thinks.   :)

 

About 10 years ago my church decided they were going to update the HUGE sanctuary w/new pews, rebuilt lighting fixtures, carpet, etc so I stepped up and did all the painting solo. 

 

The general contractor and a builder who are also members weren't too happy with me.  The sanctuary, narthex and everything looked fantastic when I was done.  I guess that builder was going to charge them $10k for the painting work.  hahaha  Sorry Charlie.  WHO gave me the talent to do the job in the first place AND WHY should I charge my own church?  

 

Silly humans!  :)

because so many turks live in germany, the turkish doener kebab has become the second german fast food dish.
