Skip to comments.The Hobbit Hole XXXIII - And the brook that leaps from hill to plain...
Posted on 03/08/2007 2:40:27 PM PST by HairOfTheDog
Welcome to The Hobbit Hole!
Sing hey! for the bath at close of day
That washes the weary mud away!
A loon is he that will not sing:
O! Water Hot is anoble thing!
O! Sweet is the sound of falling rain.
and the brook that leaps from hill to plain;
but better than rain or rippling streams
is Water Hot that smokes and steams.
O! Water cold we may pour at need
down a thirsty throat and be glad indeed;
but better is Beer, if drink we lack,
and Water Hot poured down the back.
O! Water is fair that leaps on high
in a fountain white beneath the sky;
but never did fountain sound so sweet
as splashing Hot Water with my feet!
Wow...we both used the word “ruckus” within one minute of each other!
What a day, eh? Unbelievable.
I think the guy she was fighting with was her boyfriend...she wanted him to apologize for something. I didn’t stick around to hear what.
Ouch. Gonna need a body shop for that. The trailer place may be able to recommend one.
I hear yah. Too bad this guy is turning out to be a doofus.
I don’t claim responsibility for him! ;-)
What a hassle...hope it proves easy to fix.
Ah, man...that’s funny right there...I don’t care who you are, but that’s funny.
I would have stayed... I love a good ruckus when I'm not involved in it :~)
Come a-long, lit-tle children come a-long
While the moon is shining bright.
Get on board,down the river float,
Raise a ruck-us tonight!
I talked to the cardiologist, and he says there are no indications of serious problems so far. More tests on Friday.
She didn't ask for her crossword puzzles yet, but wanted a list of phone numbers of family and friends so she could get caught up on gossip.
As I was looking through yesterday's newspapers, in attempt to clean up clutter that has been on hold from yesterday, I came across the "letters to the doctor" column. One item was about unusual symptoms to heart attacks. He said that in older people, a heart attack can bring on sudden dizziness and loss of balance, as opposed to the "standard" crushing chest pain. The answer was there before I even had a chance to read it.
Sounds like she's doing ok!
Glad to hear she’s doing OK.
Hi Hair, it’s been a while since I’ve been around and I just tried to get to the Yahoo location but “My Groups” have disappeared and I couldn’t find the yahoo hobbit hole. Is it still there and how can I get there?
It’s still there, but we don’t use it much any more. It’s pretty dormant.
Is there something in particular you’re looking for?
You wanna go to Hills Cafe? Chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes, with that fine white gravy on the side ...!
I use Miracle Gro on my roses, but I'm a chemi-head. You can also use good organic stimulants on 'em.
***Chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes, with that fine white gravy on the side ...***
At muh waterin hole here in bvue they make a gravy on meatloaf night that smells so good I’ve considered getting it, even though I’m not even a big fan of meatloaf.
But... It would be less embarassing than ordering a bowl of their gravy and a spoon.
I use Miracle Gro on about everything but the dog. ;-) It works pretty well, if my loco pansies and petunias last year are any indication.
Well...after the poor hummingbird flying by last night, I felt guilty about not stopping for a feeder. Got it and a fairly short shepherd’s crook, so I st it up just outside the door. If it proves too tempting to the dog, I’ll get a taller one and use that one for flowers. I don’t think he’d mess with hanging flowers if they were actually hanging, instead of sitting on the ground waiting to be put on hangers. He thought the hooks make a dandy handle...
Perfect. You’ll laugh but i’ll do that.
On the 9th, we will be pulling in to the train station around 7pm in the evening. We'll be there all day on the 10th and the 11th. I'm staying with my elder brother, he'll want to take me to see his job. And my best friend, that I grew up with, she lives in that area too and we're planning on getting together. But I can work around anything. We also want to show the boys around where we used to live.
On the 12th, it is tentatively planned that someone is going to drive up from San Antonio in my younger brother's car and hand it over to us. For keeps. We're going to buy it from him. This is what it looks like. This isn't it...but it's just like it.
Then we'll all drive back to San Antonio where we will be staying in a hotel overlooking the Riverwalk until the 15th.
We will leave San Antonio and head to Galveston. We come start home from Galveston on the 18th.
My grandmother used to make a cream gravy so good that I would eat it only with bread...just sop bread in and gobble it down. It’s usually what I had for dessert!
I'm thinking of it for a pedicure.
Heh heh heh!!
You’re getting a PT Cruiser? Really? How fun!
I forgot we’ve got a LOST to watch... how about we remember tomorrow, earlier... when you get home?
Yep. My little brother is selling me his.
I’m thrilled beyond belief. Remember when I said I wanted one? I believe it’s what ultimately led to me getting the Beetle...
Well, that’s very cool! I look forward to the pictures :~)
I’m thinking I’ll need a pair of purple Chucks, don’t you think?
I think so :~)
One of your dream cars, ‘eh? Very cool!
I knew you’d agree.
It’ll be a while...I may get it in July when we go to Texas...maybe not even then. He has to find a new car first.
I know it. I’m just thrilled.
I wish I could get it sooner...my old car has no A/C. It’s why we’re taking the train to Texas.
The Heartland Flyer in Oklahoma, connecting to the Texas Eagle in Dallas, then on down to Austin.
Steve went to bed at around 8pm...he might have to get up and draw samples if it storms. I’m monitoring the weather...so far so good. It’s clear over by OKC so it’ll be a while ‘fore it gets here and he should get a good sleep.
I’m gonna take a hot soak.
I just did some time on the NordicTrak and now I’m having some lemonade made with Splenda.
I feel so virtuous...
I like Splenda better in drinks than sugar. I’d rather have it in my coffee.
I’m done watching the radar for Steve...nothing’s coming so far...I’m going to bed.
Good night Hobbit Hole.
LOVE that purple car!!
Morning Hair- I didn’t find your post till this a.m.- you must have been online last night when I posted.
Not looking for anything in particular- I’m just rereading LoTR and wanted to look at some of the info docs and pics that had been out there.
Phun with Photoshop Philters. :)
A PT cruiser? Perfect!
I used the elliptical trainer last night. That makes twice this week. I’m virtuous too. Or something.
Yay, Friday! And a free lunch from work... at the Japanese steakhouse place...
(did I miss anything?)
Oh - well that stuff is still there, I think! I’ll FRMail you the addy....
Mmmm.... hibachi tableside cooking. And Company-Endorsed Long Lunch.
WooHoo!! Record-breaking snowfall for this late in April, starting at 1:00 a.m. Set your alarm clock :-)
As long as I am here.
