Uh oh, somebody found my hidey-hole

Dear folks,
I have been maintaining this blogsite as a means of saving some of my random thoughts. I imagine that everyone has seen most of the stuff written here if they follow the blogsites and newspapers. Please don't take anything to be absolute fact, because I usually write something first and then go back and get it right later.

You are welcome to read and comment. You can help me get it right, because someday I'm going to write a local history book and all this stuff will be used to jog my memory.

My archaic terms offend some people, I’ve already heard one complaint about the word “whore”. I don’t know the current respectable term for that word, so maybe someone can help me there.

The turkey's about to come out of the oven. I'll send you a picture!

I feel like I've made the big time when suzy sends me a comment.

We ate half the turkey before I remembered to take the picture then I forgot that I changed my e-mail address, so I couldn't receive the photo at this site. But the turkey was perfect!

I’m going to see if I can make Ekovoxes recipe for Hot dog / Butterscotch / Noodle / casserole. If it turns out as good as he says, i'll post the recipe here.

Branscomb you sly dog. And to think, I thought you wrote a ton over at Eko's place...As far as folks being offended at the word "whore", it is outdated you know, so try "little ho bag" next time, you'll find folks really respect the term.

Lodgepole, Yeah, I’ve been getting a lot of mileage out of my postings. The Eel Rock story I changed a bit and they printed it n the Redwood times. A lot of people have come up to me and mentioned that they either liked it, or it brought back memories for them. Of course the “kids” were amazed that those kinds of things were done back then.

I got fined at the Rotary club for using the word “whore” in the newspaper. The consensus was that I should have said “Ho”, but that is not a word that they would have said back then. They might have called her “A lady of the evening”. But this “lady” worked in broad daylight. She couldn’t wait too late, the loggers got up at four in the morning, so she didn’t get many customers after dark. She probably pulled the shades. Maybe I should have called her a “Shady Lady”. Besides, how would I know, I was only a fifteen-year old truck driver!

I think whore works just fine.
Although, I enjoy using the term harlot more often.
