— A Random Five post [009], This and That — The Jim Bunch Eats and Plays

my Five things

One:  Driving home from San Antonio last Sunday we took the back scenic roads.  We found this lovely town above.  What town do you think it was? Highlight the empty space between this paragraph and the one below to find out.
It was Cat Spring, Texas. (link)
And then close to home, within the city limits of our Montgomery we found this oil well in progress.  Click on either picture to get it to large sized.

Two:  A sandwich in the making

- A three inch hunk of natural white batard
- One cooked braut sausage (warmed)
- 1/3 cup drained sauerkraut (warmed)
- One large slice of Swiss cheese
- Mustard to suit

- Slice the batard hunk into thirds
- Arrange ingredients, one third portion on each slice of batard
- Heat in microwave slowly so bread does not become tough.  I use the pastry warm selection twice to total nine pieces of pastry.  Click here, the Fanatic Cook, to read about batards.


Three:  I've been promising to show you the other part of my wash, the "whites."  On the left is my "white" clothes wash.  Note there is one pair of dark socks.  If I have a big wash I do two loads, one lighter colored clothes than the other.

On the right is my socks, shorts, and P J's drawer.  I have no problem mating socks as I always get at least six pairs of the same kind.  That way if the dryer gets one it will still all come out in the wash.


Four:  Read my car
Notice the crazy looking rig I'm following.  It didn't take me long to cross over to the next lane.  The red car ahead is going fast and I will also speed up to get around this monster of the highways.  I looked at the picture large sized and the guy really is off his.  The box on the top does not seem to be tied in or on good at all.  The bottom was tied using the same kind of small rope strung across the back.  Nothing fell while I was watching.

Five: The following are pictures from our San Antonio weekend with Mrs. Jim's Sunday school class.  Thirty-two of us went, driving our own cars or carpooling.

==> I am linked up today with Nancy at A Rural Journal. She conducts her "A Random Five" blog hop there. Click that link to read other "A Random Five" posts or to join in with your own.

==> Click on any picture for a larger size and a better view.  Now that my sock and underwear wash and drawer is finished it will be time for Mrs. Jim's Annual Performance Review.

==> I finally got all my comments answered last week. I am sorry if I was late with yours I did some in San Antonio and a few after we got home. 

==> I very likely will not post next week as we will be traveling again.  Sorry, I am getting to like these Random Five posts.

Feline Friday

Cat in Hiding

This white cat didn't want any part of me or my camera.

At San Antonio I found him sneaking around
in and around the bushes.  We were just leaving
after supper but I only had a doggy bag. 

Had it been a cat bag I would have fed him.

Succinctly Yours

Tilly, the housekeeper, gave her going away present to Toddy, the chauffer.

Already numb, this whiskey carrier was fine for his long journey.
