Bak'n a cake......yum yum eat 'em up

Hee hee hee, it seems ever time I use a little "spices an' herbs" in my stories, I get bombed. Well, maybe not bombed, but....read carefully, "Billy Bob, you need to replace "Sally da house" with a brand spank'n new motorhome". So this morn'n, I'm gonna set the story straight.

Ya see, when ya buy something, motorhomes included, things are gonna break. It could be a flat tire, what with a dose of "spices an' herbs", I could turn it into a total "high dollar" disaster. But it ain't a disaster. It's just a simple flat tire. The red light on my water heater. I added some spice an' turn it into a terrible sounding situation. It ain't. Even if I had to replace the water heater, it is a simple, and cheap, replacement. I do NOT need to replace my entire house because a little "red" light came on to remind me that something is wrong.

Shoot, while we on the subject....."Sally da house" has cost me very little in repairs in the last 10 years. Some expenses were added when I upgraded to "comfort". Think'n a hardwood floor here an' a stiffer butt cushion on "that couch" due to lower back issues. Floor cost....less than a thousand dollar. Couch modification....right at $300. Actual repair costs probly not over $2000....in 10 freak'n years. That's not bad for a great big ol' "truck" with a fully furnished house sit'n on it's frame....with hot an' cold runn'n water, a sewer system, it's own electric generating system (Onan generator), all the comforts of a "stick house"....well shoot, you know what I'm talk'n bout, "Sally da house" is more than fully contained. An' she is in very good condition.

Now there are some repair issues that MUST be fixed. Like the parking brake issue. At this point, my cost is right at a hunnert dollar an' a few hours labor (bout 4 at this point)...for the repair of a $4000 system.

I been notice, when I write a long blog post...an' I do the same thing, we tend to ask the question...."why is this blog post soooo loooong"? Some writers like to give details. Some of us add a little spice. Ha ha....some of us write stuff what don't make sense. Then there are some of us that just write to be writ'n. But, somewheres in that long post is the reason we write the blog in the first place. Ya just got to look for it.

By the comments I receive, I attempt to change my writing style, try'n to please each reader. You may have noticed, my "redneck" writ'n style is becom'n a thing of the past. That don't mean I ain't still a redneck of sorts, it's just try'n to be more plain what I say. So's people don't have to look in a dictionary to see what some them words mean.

Oh, 'fore I fergit....me an' grandaughter Rainee baked a cake. Went up to "yo mama's" kitchen an' baked it there. Wanna see???

 Sorry for all the photos, but it was a very special day for the old Billy Bob.

  3. I believe that the cake does look good enough to eat! The cook is very pretty, as well!

    A good looking girl that can cook...? Boy, will she be a catch for some lucky young man in the future! Bet you had a great time, right?

    1. Too late to eat it Jim. That sucker is all gone.

      At her nanna's house, she is allowed to help cook. She had never baked a cake though. All I did was take pics while she did the work.
      Yesterday is a day I will remember fr many years. I'm sure she will also.

  4. No apology allowed for pictures as long as they aren't of you. Pictures of pretty ladies and good cooking are appreciated to the point of being required. Have some more fun BB.

  5. Beautiful young lady and she can cook, now I believe the you must be very proud of her and the joy she brought to your day. When she crawls under "da house" and observes you doing repairs is when is when you will experience total joy and happiness. Of course women, grown up ones might not approve of such behavior, but no way does it belittle any "lady".

    1. Your comment brought a great big ol' smile to my face Mickey. She already helped me sort out tools, so' I'm guess'n she would be happy to crawl up under "da house" with me. I like lady's that do mechanical work.

  6. What do you mean "sorry for the pictures"? Those are the best part! And making the memories are the best part of life. You gave her something to remember and the bonus is you have something to keep yourself!! Good for you, her, and us! Thanks.

    1. I like your comments Rob.....LOL, you don't beat me up too bad. I'm glad you understand how a few spices can spruce up what ever your cook'n.....or say'n. I would love to hear your spiced up version of that fuse replacement. I know I could do something with it.
