Brisket Bluegrass Beer and Skittles

Posted on

102214_1546_TimeandSpac1.jpgMonday, rainy Monday. Once again I am amazed at this wild lands ability to recover from droughts. The ground vegetation had almost disappeared, the bermudagrass was straw colored. Then we gratefully receive two days of intermittent rains, and it looks like a verdant spring outside, albeit on the soggy side.

Old Joe Clark” by Bill Monroe plays on the google puck for the budgies benefit. I am slowly adapting to her tastes in banjer music. She is happily chirping and whistling in response to the five string pickin’s and my foot starts tappin’ out the rhythm. My days as a classical music snob have ended. No more wine and brie. It is beer and skittles now. Well, maybe not skittles. We got too many armadillo holes here for lawn bowling. But you get the idea.

And it’s Rosh Hashanah today. Honey and apples and brisket on the menus. Sort of like black-eyed-peas on New Years day, but with more meals and liturgy. We bluegrass types don’t stand on a lot of formality, though and give a passing nod to the holy day and move on.

So here in my little corner of paradise we cycle through the seasons, each morning marked with one or two cups of perfectly brewed coffee from Snooks pot.

Good morning!

    We had a beautiful weekend after days of endless rain and flooding. Today is the last day for flood alerts but that can change in a heartbeat…..

      Yeah. Sometimes you gotta look at the rainbow to be sure that the rains have ended.

    Isn’t it wonderful when nature bursts forth with green after a long dry spell? But can I compromise and have beer and Brie?

      … always thought it was brie and bland crakers with wine, and stinky cheese on saltines with beer …

        Cheese on saltines? Never! Stinky or not.
