I love my wife — Six Word Saturday —

my six words:
What Mrs. Jim doesn't know won't...

Or will it? ~~ First of all, these pictures were taken at a gourmet dinner that was held at our home last. Mrs. Jim cooked the entrée while three other ladies prepared the rest of the meal.

Pictured below from left to right is what we had: carrot soup with ginger; a romaine lettuce salad (no picture); pork chops with butternut squash and apple stuffing with a mild dirty rice (Mrs. Jim's presentation); and berry, apple, and pistachio combo pie garnished with pistachio nuts and whip cream.
Now, what did Mrs. Jim not know? ~~ Mrs. Jim found a mouse in the garage running to hide someplace. What she didn't know is that the connecting door to the garage was open for several hours that afternoon while we were gone.

Next time I go to the hardware store I will buy some 'blue traps' for that creature and his friends. After I catch him and any of his friends living there I will tell her about the open door that I have been worrying about.

Thursday Memes -- Things in a row -- Two Questions


I had a dental appointment last Thursday (Did I get all your comments answered? I am sorry if I didn't. You will have priority this time!). My appointment was in Huntsville, Texas, about 35 miles to the north of us.

Mrs. Jim agreed to come with me and we would have lunch after my appointment and then we would mess around for a bit after that. For lunch, off the lunch menu, Mrs. Jim ordered a shrimp poboy and I ordered a crawfish poboy. Then we shared. Both came with lots of fries and I had a very nice dinner salad. It was all very delicious. No pictures but here is their link.
Bob Luby's Seafood Grill

After lunch we went to some antique shops on Main Street. I always like the toy sections of those stores. They are always arranged so nicely, generally in rows like these. On the way back I took the court house picture for its rows and then the historic marker for its rows of printing. Click on it to make it big enough to read.

We spent a couple of hours in the stores and driving around a little. Then on the way home I went into the grocery store to pick up the special on Blue Bell ice cream. (

And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Poetic Shutterbug for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)
Last week we answered questions about our organized eating affairs and favorite foods. Many of you said organized eating wasn't something you would be able to do at this time. I would recommend that you try some of this when you have more time. Mrs. Jim and I have the luxury of being retired and living in a community with others who have a lot of time on our hands. Your favorite foods all sounded really good to me!

My Two Questions for this week:
1. Do you take the rest of the day off for yourself after a doctor or dentist appointment? If so, what do you like to do?
Besides what I mentioned doing with Mrs. Jim I like to go for a nice ride taking the long way home. That is specially nice on the spring and fall days when I can put the top down on my Mustang.
2. Where do you like to just go to the store without necessarily buying anything?
In addition to the antique stores I like to visit the hardware and electronic stores. The library is fine too. Ocassionally I purchase a used book from the 'Friends of the Library' group.

.e .
Bonus Question: Do you get your dog's teeth cleaned?
That isn't easy or cheap anymore. The dogs need a pre-cleaning checkup including an EKG. Our two dogs were well over $200. I wonder if doggy medical insurance covers teeth cleaning?

Now for an example of THINGS NOT IN A ROW. This naughty beagle in the picture sent to me in a circulating e-Mail by my friend, John, must been pretty nervous when his master left for work.

Dress of the evening was Blue Jeans — MidWeek Blues —


The occasion was Mrs. Jim's Sunday school class Halloween party last October. Every year a member who lives just out of town hosts a wiener roast at his East Texas piney woods home.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did..

Leslie was being saturated. Filled with Rolf's chatter.

She retaliated by using her old aggravation technique, hands over ears and singing.
