I've decided that tomorrow I'm going to be grumpy. Not everyone can predict things like that, but I can.

Tomorrow I have a doctors appointment to get my cast cut off. Normally that would be a good thing. However, they cut it off, change the dressing on my foot, and then put a new cast on again. Then, I'm not allowed to walk on it for 24 hours. That's the hard part.

So, in anticipation. I cooked an extra steak on the bar-b-q tonight so I can zap it in the microwave (it's better then nothing). I made potatoe salad, and I dearly love potatoe salad. I sliced up some fresh cucumbers from the garden. I picked some ripe tomatoes. I have some left over lasagna. I stopped down to the store today and got 3 different kinds of chips. Bought more mexican cheese to make a dip for corn chips.

I think I'm ready and will be able to just zap something in the microwave and not have to stand too long holding my foot off the floor. So maybe I won't be real grumpy. The hard part is going to be making coffee. I use spring water, so I have to go across the room, get the 5 gallon jug and fill the coffee pot, and then make it back to the counter in the kitchen so I can set it up.

We'll see how it goes.

I think I'd pay money to watch the hopping one-legged across the kitchen whilst hoisting that 5 gallon jug

Y'all might want to invest in a smaller jug to keep near the coffeepot!

Gallon jug is filled and setting next to the coffee pot for setting it up tonight. See, it's always nice to seek advice from friends. A very simple thing that I had overlooked. Thanks!

Just about the time you have everything figured out, you hit a stumbling block that is so obvious. hahahaha It's the drugs man, I'm blaming it on the drugs. They currently have me on 19 different prescriptions. Was thinking of opening a branch office of Wal-Greens. But first I have to get a better inventory. All those meds and not one of them a controlled med. I'm kind of proud of the fact that I don't have to take anything that alters the mind.

Coffee's on!

I have to take the snow plow off the 4 wheeler this morning so I can drive it to town. Yeah, I know, you're wondering about a snowplow on the front of the 4 wheeler and me just saying I'm not taking any controlled drugs.

My neighbor runs a rock crusher for the state. He asked me a while back (weeks) if I could use some gravel. I told him to bring it on, I can always use gravel. Well, yesterday morning, he pulled up with 6 yards of gravel. Now here I am, cast on my leg and a big mound of gravel in the middle of everything. So I put the snowplow on my 4 wheeler and spread that gravel out. Worked like a champ. But now I have to pull the plow back off again because I'm not hauling it 21 miles to town and back. Takes less then 60 seconds to drop it. Only took about 3 minutes to put it on. He said he's going to bring me 3 or 4 more loads this week. Can't pass up free gravel. This gravel is concrete that they tore up on the edge of town while redoing a road. Had to wait all summer for this gravel, but when it's free, you can't be choosy about "Hey, I want a load on Thursday, and then another one on Monday. etc.....

Hey, I did want to mention one other thing. It's that time of year. Now is the time, don't wait and miss it. NO, it's not time to Christmas shop. It's not even time for fall fashions or halloween costumes.

Neighbor and I made 6 pints of Horseradish over the weekend. She went out and dug it up, I ground it while she was throwing stuff in it. It came out great.

What's next on the fall lineup of free food? Chokecherry's? Picked a bunch of asparagus early this year and I've already eaten all of that. But while getting the asparagus I found a bunch that I was late getting to. So next year I have it all mapped out on where and when.

Picked a lot of rasberry's, but for some reason I always manage to eat that fresh. Barely get it washed before I've got that consumed.

No plumbs around here, that I know of. So I think for my area the Chokecherry's are about the only thing left. If I can get enough, I'll make some jam.

We went Saturday and picked 4 boxes of apples. They were really small this year which is funny. Usually small equates to bitter. Not this year. I picked some apples that are only about 1.5 inches tall and they are the sweetest apples I've had in years. They look like delicious, but not sure what kind they are. Hey, when you pick apples in the middle of the night you gotta be quick and not pickey.

Look who I caught in the orchard -- it wasn't bears what stole all the apples after all!!

<peering closely> Tho he does LOOK a little like a bear....

Ow! He bit me!!!

There's a variety of apple that starts bearing when it's only a little bush, that looks and tastes like Delicious, but the fruits are about half-sized. Can't recall the name of the variety, tho.

I had transparent apples in my yard in Bozeman. Icky things, too soft and too sweet. Sold a bunch of 'em for pie apples.

Time you get done takin' 19 different pills, you won't have room left for that steak. So I'll be over to help you eat it. Just microwave it long enough to take the chill off... cold rare steak is pretty durn good too.

Or, you could, if available in your area, go to the refrigerator case in your local supermarket or grocery store and buy ...

Like a demented cross between broccoli and mustard.
