Have you seen my Wiener?

Dog that is.  Here is a day in the life of Rufus.

And here is the Dragon "on patrol," which is what he would like us to believe he does all day.

Without fail, every time we pull into the driveway he runs to greet us and then makes a beeline to the groundhog hole.  Not sure what happened to good ol' Phil, but he hasn't made an appearance lately.  The neighbor down the way said something about trying to trap it.  I'm going to go with that scenario, and not ask any questions.  Still...Twinkletoes wants to remind us that he's on top of things. Real or imaginary.

The youngest spawn graduated from the 5th grade yesterday.  He still has a week of school though.  Hello cruel world.  He's seriously pissed.  He reasons that he's done his time, graduated and made the honor roll.  Isn't that enough?  I told him to run for the School Board.

On the GrowDammit menu tonight...

Pea Soup

It was delish.

Last night...

GrowDammit Stuffed Shrooms

Next...Farmer Ted is starting to learn how to use the damned expensive camera we own.   And, the herb bracket poll will start.  I'm hoping this will eclipse March Madness.


  1. Rufus Dragon.... The first video is how it REALLY rolls around here... The second one is only whenever we pull in. We've been to taking a video of this shit for a few months but we finally got the timing right. Oh.... Before he goes tearing off to the groundhog hole.... He has to try and run next to the car..... I guess that he's begging to get ran over; Lemme correct that... Before he goes tearing off to the groundhog hole.... He has to try and run next to the car... Begging to fuckin' get run over. (Ran or run.... Farmer Chele doubles as the English major so she would know more about it than me.) I'm just the Chemical Engineer.... That became a chef. Boy.... I sure went backwards in MY career choices. Now I'm a Farmer! Oh.... Wannabe Farmer.

    Yeah.... I'm starting to figure out our monster ass camera. I've (Up to this point) have always been a "Point and shoot" type guy but since we have it.... I figured that I should try and figure out how to use it. Tip of the day.... When you have a camera of this magnitude... You should start here... "The Nikon guide to digital photography with the D50 Digital Camera." (Yeah... The users manual.) All 137 pages of it.
    The more that I read.... The more that I know that... I don't know SHIT about photography; But I'm learning. It's gonna take a WHILE....But I'll figure it out.

    What about those stuffed mushrooms?! Yeah... That's how we roll it over here at the farm. The chilled pea soup was GREAT too! Actually.... The pea soup was fuckin' AWESOME! Everything's coming right along. We've been having our share of rain, which is good although it's been messing with our "Hanging out on the deck" nights but the rains come late... So we DO get some time in out there. It's become my favorite part of the day.

    Yep! The youngest spawn did it! "President's Education Awards Program." In other words... Straight A's and B's. Good job spawn! As for our "Spawnette" she applied for a job as a Pharmacy Technician so let's keep our fingers crossed and as for the Eldest Spawn.... Well.... He got himself a fuckin' mohawk. I'm SURE that pics will follow.

    Never let it be said that we're not "Well rounded" over here.

  2. Our dog is the same way (but taller):-)

  3. Yours is taller... Ours is longer! (And lazier.)

  4. Rufus Dragon: You're home...you're home...you're home!!!!!

    Farmer Chele (shooing him away): Dragon Boy, get out of the way!

    Rufus Dragon: I've got to show you something! You just have to come with me!

    Farmer Chele: Rufus, I've been working my fingers to the bone today and I'm tired. Why don't you go and check it out yourself?

    Rufus Dragon(Wagging his tail): Okayokayokayokay!!!! It's over here!! Come see!!

    Lmao! Renee made me watch that video 5 times already. Love it!

    BTW, drooling over that soup and mushrooms. Yum!
