Gumbo day


 Well, I were sit'n out there on "da porch" sip'n a cup and do'n some think'n. Think'n bout what I gonna do for the rest of the day. Well hell, why not defrost that chicken ya cooked in the solar oven and brew up some gumbo? That what I gonna do.


Two nights in a row it was freez'n cold here in the desert. Not in the daytime, but at night when my covers fall off the bed and leave me wonder'n why I'm cold. Ya see, I turn the heat down to bout 55 degs at night, what if'n ya ain't covered up with some blankets, ya gonna get cold. It's a beautiful day with an abundance of sunshine....and a steady breeze of bout 10 mile a hour. Would be a perfect day for golf ball swak'n, but old Billy Bob is still sore for thursday's swak'n golf balls. I'm think'n it's time to get out of Dodge (Deming).

Speak'n of Dodge, did I ever tell ya bout my old 1936 Dodge 4 door sedan.....or what ever. Remenber Cheech and Chong...the cop asked "where's your license"? "It's on the back man". Well, I was driv'n round out in the desert run'n over bushes, cactus and stuff. When I got back to the "hang-out" where all the "older" teens hung out till midnight, one them City cops come up to me and ask..."where's your license"? I says...."it's on the back man", but it weren't....it were gone. The whole trunk lid was gone, broke slap off and lay'n out there in the desert somewhere....along with the license plate. Have ya ever tried to find a trunk lid in the middle of the desert? Took 2 days to find that damn thing.

Ok....I got gumbo to make....see ya laters.

  1. LIB,, I had a 39 Dodge pickem up, all original except some kid had rigged it to run on 12 volt, but he didn't change over the gauges so they didn't work. Was fun while I had it, towed it to Texas when we moved back, and finally sold it off.

  2. Dang BB, that must have been a rough ride out in the desert. Back track'n your tracks for twe days, wow, you sure did put in a lot of miles that one night. 'Course the fist trip was at about a hundred mph or so, right?

  3. Actually Ben, my Dodge was a 36' 4 door sedan. But I'm so excited to hear about your 39' pick'em up.

    Dizzy, any time ya take off across the desert, it gonna be a rough ride. What we done was take off for the mountains in the morning and when we was half out of gas, headed home. Back track'n a trail for bout twenty mile, not remembering where the hell ya went is like look'n for a quarter in the saw dust on the saloon floor. Found the trunk lid less than 1/2 mile from home....of course, that ain't where we started back track'n.
    Oh, did I ever tell ya bout the time.......????
