Old Fools Journal: Oh My, I Ran Over An Alligator or This is what happens to alligators and bicycle riders on this road.

" 'Tis far better to keep one's mouth closed and
seem the fool; than to open it, thereby removing
all doubt."
 Anon.

Judging from the remarks I have been hearing on the radio by the "nutballs" that want to be president my advice is 1.purchase duck tape 2. apply to mouth. ~Tom Swaim

Poor thing. It only wanted to cross the road like the chicken.
And it was just a baby.  I wish it could have grown up to be battered and fried.
This is why I call it the blacksmith shop.  Its real name is Carsmiths. Like any mechanic they make mistakes but they correct them gracefully and I have never been overcharged.
It's an old frame house that has been converted to a business I believe.
Picking the car up was a success however the left front brake started dragging on the way home and I arrived in a cloud of smoke so it is still broken.  Oh well as  Edna Saint Vincent Millay said  "It is not true that life is one damn thing after another...It's one damn thing over and over."
My stash of vine sun ripe tomatoes.  They are delicious.  The skin is tough but I still have 25 teeth and make short work of them.  Lately I have been removing the skins once in a while just for a change in consistency.  Either way, yum.
This is all the potatoes from the great potato experiment. There was enough here for one helping for one person. It cost nothing to grow them as they were grown in an area that nothing was planned for this year from potatoes that had sprouted in the refrigerator.  The bad thing is they tasted so damn good that now I want to get serious about it next time.


It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with
potatoes.- Douglas Adams

"I wish it could have grown up to be battered and fried." Love it! I assume that alligator meat is pretty tasty? I've never thought to eat it myself, but I might have to try it now if I ever see it on the menu somewhere....

Poor little thing, however; I've heard the meat is good.

The produce looks fabulous. Dying for fresh vegetables. Living in the city stinks, it really does!

P.S. I love your quotes.

Alligator meat is excellent.

You can grow your potatoes in a stack of tires works real good and only takes 1 square yard of space as the vine grows put on another tire and fill with soil you can go up 6 tires high and get about 30 potatoes per stack give it a try I did 10 a few years ago with fingerling potatoes and got about 6 bushels..

Have to disagree with Douglas Adams (for once) - ALL problems can be solved by potatoes. Not one single issue cannot be rectified by the mighty spud. Well, except for that alligator's problems - I don't think potatoes can save the poor fella now.

I too am partial to the potato or as my gramma and mother called them "the Irish potato". My comfort food of choice.
