A stunning pee break

A not so modest Meetso decided it was a great spot and time to take a pee break right in the snow.
It was again taken during the worse winters in a long time.
Guess he just started to tolerate the snow to not care any more whether he found a nice clean spot to take a leak.
Still a handsome boy even when peeing. What a guy. 

I'm too sexy for a toilet.

Time to play catch up again

Time to play catch up again. But that just the way it is, isn't it? When you're busy with things other less important things get tossed aside and get piled up. Nothing really interesting to say. Its more of the same old work of trying to make a bit of cash est so I won't bore you with that.

But please enjoy this pic of Meetso. It was taken sometime after Christmas and you can see one of those many storms we had during this long and harsh winter in the background.
I just had to take that pic since he looked so stunning, looking his best in his full fur coat.
Now of course its another story. Now its like having a small pet musk ox. No matter how much you comb the guy, you still get the fur tangling in the most annoying matted clumps. Going to have to start shaving him soon again. I guess there's a price to pay to look so stunning and warm in the cold months.

I'm gonna eat you little fishies..........

Is what Meetso would say if he could talk like you and me or the guy from Red Dwarf. That's a favorite show of mine in case you have no idea. Its a British comedy/scifi/sitcom. One of those rare funny shows that come every once in a while. Like the BigBangThrory. Now if they ever made a new version of the north American Red Dwarf, the guys from the BigBangThrory would be a perfect match. Although there probably would be some differences in story and character arcs. There was an attempt earlier to make a north American version but it only got as far as a pilot show. You can see an example of the show yourself on YouTube and then you'll know why. But then everyone's opinion is different. Who knows?

Anyways just some more fall pics which were taken on a Friday several months ago. Naturally every one has fish on Friday in this family so I gave him some nice recently defrosted smelts for him to enjoy. He prefers the smelts over any salt water fish and I don't blame him since the stuff that comes out of the sea always has this funky smell by the time it reaches our area. Tends to taste like it too. Personally my favorite seafood, is shrimp and any other crustacean. He likes shrimp as well but that’s an every once in a while treat for him and for me as well. 

 Ooooo fish. I'm gonna eat you little fishies..........^
 Any more????..........^

 Guess not. Then no more pics for you ;) ..........^

Poke weed

For some reason I'm always calling these “Pick weed” But its actually called “Poke weed” Not sure why again. More pics from that late fall walk I took months ago. In the same area when I took pics of those Jewish artichokes or those flowers in the same family as the sunflower.
A very nice and tantalizing looking plant with juicy and tasty looking berries. But if you find these your self some time, please don't eat them. I don't want to be responsible for what happens next. They are poisonous after all. But at least they're still tasty for the eyes.

 In other news, I entered Meetso in a cutest pet contest. I hope he wins something. ;)

Have some leftovers. They're still good.

New year but leftover photos from last year.
Hoping for a better year this year but it seems I say that every year and it only gets worse and worse. Sigh....... oh well. But still hopeful.

Yeah I have some photos yet to be shown form another one of my walks which were taken late fall if I remember correctly. And here they are. They are of some flowers that are in the same family as the sun flower. Found them in a small park with a few areas that have some brush, trees and a few backyards of some houses. The flowers are called The Jewish Artichoke. Not sure why that is because they look nothing like an artichoke. But they are edible. The root the most edible, is very much like a potato and can be eaten like one if boiled or eaten raw like a cucumber. At least that's what I saw in a foraging book. I have yet to try that.
That bit of info could come in handy someday or maybe something you wanted to know and try out of curiosity. But the best time to dig up one of these is just after a frost so you're out of luck this time. In the book they recommend to locate one in the summer then soon after the first frost dig up and then use. Sounds good to me.
When I took these pics, there were even some bumble bees still on them but very sleepy from the cold.
Even managed to save a few seeds in a bag. Going to see if I can grow some in the back yard this year. 

If your wondering what I was up to during the holidays, not much. Made a fruit cake inspired by a fruit cake I ate last year that my mom bought from church. Normally I don't like fruit cake like the majority of society because of those dried citrus peels, other crap and over all heaviness of fruit cake. But this one was the best I’ve ever eaten. So I tried to emulate it and it turned out pretty great but it just didn't have the punchlines of the other. Understandable since I didn't exactly have any real rum or bourbon on hand. I had this not even real, ancient extract of rum that's been in the cabinet for who knows how long. Mom and her love of artificial extracts. Oh well, hopefully I can get some of the real stuff next year.

Just two nuts

Boy, some people drop F-bombs like pigeons drop crap on people's heads or perfectly clean cars.
I heard that there's an app now to know where all the F-bombs are let loose in the world on digital maps and its live too.
Fascinating I know. North America seems to be the biggest culprit. No surprise there.

Anyways on a walk not so recent. Meaning that it was a few months ago when the trees still had their leaves est I found these two nuts close to where the source tree is. They were two black walnuts still with their bumpy green coverings on them. Wow black walnuts! Love those things. Been looking for some for the longest time. But unfortunately the tree is owned by someone. So I have yet to find a park with some. So after I took a few pics, I went to the garage and found a hammer. I gave it a few whacks on each nut which was no easy task and got to the tasty goodness inside.

Oh and for those who have their minds in the gutter and or who are holding on to their pants, just stop, they're just nuts. ;p

Oh look one of them has a happy face. LOL
Found a rock like that once.  ;D;p

Three strikes you're out!

So here I am, back again and hopefully the computer all sorted out. Well maybe one or two little things yet to adjust est. If your wondering why the long silence? Well this is why. My computer a few weeks ago crapped out for the last time. Well I could have yet wasted more time and temporally had my computer patched up only for it to fail weeks later. Nope! It was time to put the thing out of its misery. But the most frustrating thing was knowing that the darn thing was only 5 years old. 5 years old? I only hope that this is not a current trend for modern lap tops. Since that would really suck if I had to yet again fork out cash of which I can't afford to feed to the hungry companies. I really, really hope that these things don't have some kind of expiration date or planned obsolesces built in or something.
BTW the problem was the mother board was well a little part of it fried. So slowly like Hal from the movie, it was going.

Anyways PC Outfitters helped me get a new replacement and hopefully a good one. I think its good and at a great deal too. I was able to resell some of the old parts from the old computer to get a bit of a discount too. Always nice. Even got a free data transfer from my old computer too. So here I am getting more and more acquainted with Windows8. So far so good. 

Pic is provided by a free clip art place. Cause I needed something fast. Will have to make one of these my self eventually.
