And that's what we get for forgetting the damn camera.

Farmer Ted had to take a mandatory time out from work yesterday because he's been working such long hours that the owner of his restaurant was afraid it was going to kill him.  That, or he realized what he owed in overtime and got nervous.

Anyway, Ted and I had an unexpected day together.  He woke up talking about yard work.  Yard work? Seriously?  My idea won.  Day trip.  Today, we chose New Hope, PA.  I had always heard positive things about New Hope, but not once in my 18 years here have I been.  So, we got in the truck and set Sybil on no toll/no highway mode and off we went.  Sybil must have been really angry with us over the last time we ignored her because it took us 2 hours to get to a destination that Mapquest claimed off the beaten path should've taken us 50 minutes.  Why didn't we use our iPhone GPS app?  Because Sybil has gone all Hal on our electronics, which you'd understand if you read the link above.

Now, is where you are expecting the goods from our adventure.  Unfortunately, we completely forgot the cameras.  So, here's what I've got from my phone...

Our friend Chad clued us into eyebrow threading, so WTF is Dimple Threading?

New Hope, PA, which runs along the banks of the Delaware River is part of the Pennsylvania Canal System.

WTF?  Is this? A statue on the banks of the canal, which I guess commemorates a canal creature?  There was only this statue and no obligatory commemorative historical plaque explaining it.  I'm not eating  a meal in New Hope, in case this is what is the "Catch of the Day."

Down by the River there is exactly one Duck Feed Vending Machine.  These motherfuckers are not stupid.  It's like the dive bar for every mallard in Pennsylvania. 

In the Galleria amidst all of the Indian stuff.

Guy Stuff.

Ted found his replacement mink.

In the funeral/mortuary vintage shop.  
Ted's iPieceofShit is not cooperating, so his pics aren't available to the blog.  What you don't see here is the picture of the Midget Vibrator.  That was the least disturbing thing we found in this shop.

Miss Gay Pennsylvania, does the heart good.
Hell yeah, New Hope.  Sorry we were so lame with the pictures.  We'll be back.  If you can control those fucking canal rats.

Next...New poll.  Basil vs. Chives.  We are in the Final Four People, so vote.  I really can't believe Lavendar won over Mustard.  I'm starting to think y'all are trying to fuck with us.  That, or you are really just bored with the Herb Smackdown


  1. The statue is described as "a beast" and his name is Boomer - here's an article about when he was temporarily removed for a canal restoration project. Apparently he was put back after the restoration

  2. Boomer...a friendly face in New Hope? What the What? I get the open air museum thing, but what about New Hope inspired a giant canal rat sculpture?

    Man, I dropped the f-bomb a lot in this post. I was pretty ticked off that the picture thing wasn't working out for me.

  3. Boomer, Huh? I still don't get it. Boomer kinda looked like a Honey Badger to me... But he was smiling so that rules out. So I was reading something pretty funny.... It told me to Google..."Where is Chuck Norris right now?" The search comes back and says... Get this..."Google won't search for Chuck Norris because it knows you don't find Chuck Norris, he finds you." LMFAO!

    In the new herb poll.... Basil is gonna win. (And that's just the facts.) On to other business.

    Farmer Chele dropping the F-Bomb... I can't figure out where she's picked up all of this nasty fuckin' language all of a fucking sudden but I'm kinda getting the fuckin' feeling that she's been influenced by some foul mouthed fuckin'.... Oh shit... wait a minuet. Next order of business...

    I can't believe that Thanksgiving is just next week. This year has just totally flown by; and what a crazy year it's been. It's been pretty good for us, despite a few pitfalls but I suppose that it's the same for everyone; As a matter of fact... Pretty much everyone that I know has taken some sort of financial "hit" in one way or another. I guess THAT confirms it... We're positively NOT in the 1%.

  4. Boomer sort of looks like a bear with a huge pointy tail. Or is that a tail? I am hoping that Ted purchased his replacement mink....He can wear it and always have someone to talk to while keeping warm. And, I am still waiting for the soup recipe! Alys Anne
