That trick doesn't work on 26.4kbps dialup, unfortunately. I have to wait forever for the page to load enough so that "Skip to New" or the "end" button works. I'm asking Santa for cable-internet if it's even available here. Maybe the chipmunk running in my hard drive is just getting old. *sigh*

Wow, you must be fast, KY! I had a deer mouse get into the house when I was replacing the dishwasher and there was an opening to the outside. I thought I would never catch that guy. Sansai thought he was cute with his over-sized anime eyes and was impressed by his climbing skills. She even named him. She pitched a fit when I pulled out the snap traps. The dogs finally cornered him. Deer mice have a strong instinct to create catches of food. More than one morning while he was in residence I found Benefull stashed in my sock drawer. (Jim)

Reminds me of when I was a kid and volunteered to keep the Science class's pet Rat over the summer. He got out and built his bed in one of my brothers' baseball caps in a dresser. We spent several days looking for him, till my brother opened his drawer to get out the hat. He was one of those Gray and White ones, and would sit on your shoulder and ride around, hanging out and other than that never caused a problem.
Trudy says there are no killer turkey's only humans with phobia's.

Breaking news.

Squatch just announced his candidacy for president as a 4th party contender.

Platform:

A Chocolate Basil fondue in every kitchen and an mjs, and her pet rat, in every pot.
Free psychiatric care for life for all DG members.
No more droughts or floods in the future.
Free lifetime supply of certified organic fertilizer to all from his personal bull farm.
A Havahart trap under every Christmas tree.
A lifetime supply of deer meeces to that person from Ky with a free $50 upgrade to a jet-black guinea pig if rebate is submitted yesterday.
A Venezuelan jet-black guinea pig to all to take over the hard disc operations for all of the "dial-ups"
"Venezuelan jet-black guinea pigs can run speeds of about 37-41 mph"-(Never knew that before Google educated me).
A smoked killer turkey for Jim.
A free definition of naughty or nice to Debra.
A full pardon and lifetime subsidy to Chipmunks and Deer mice that have been previously enslaved by these cruel folks on DG and replaced by that little rascal guinea pig.

To speak with the candidate in person call BR-549 toll free.

For a FREE bumper sticker --please send 2586 postal stamps in a self addressed envelope to:
Squatch
C/O "North-East-Central Texas or thereabouts"
"Just North of Area 51" on whatever that new highway number is.

I’ll vote the Squatch/Nestle ticket. Sure, Mrs. Claus has name recognition, the good will of the voters and a spotless reputation, but what do we REALLY know about her. I’ve known about Mrs. Claus for over 40 years, but I don’t even know the lady’s first name. I suspect she heads up Santa’s Secret Service. We’ve all seen Santa READING the N&N list, but have you ever stopped to think who COMPILES the list. I think I know!
We know Squatch ain’t perfect, but few public figures have been as thoroughly investigated. Think of how many TV programs you’ve seen that delve into every aspect of Sasquatch life. Now, consider how many investigations there have been into Mrs. Claus. I haven’t seen a single show about her on the Discovery channel. Before you vote, you might want to stop and ask yourself why that might be.
We are talking about a woman who hangs out all year with Abominable Snow Monsters, the black sheep of Squatch’s family. And, they don’t seem to give her any trouble. Why is that? What’s she got on them? I say someone with such a wholesome, squeaky clean reputation has to be compensating. (Jim)

Google an authenic picture of a reindeer. Man, did those guys ever get a Christmas make-over! Squatch should hire the ssame image consultant they use for his campaign.
I suspect Ms. Claus rigs the whole flying-reindeer-pulling-Santa's-sleigh thing by having Santa give any witnesses to the real event her special CB brownies. (Jim)

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, except Squatch the louse

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
Stuffed with basil of chocolate and shedded Squatch hair.

Loch Nestle was nestled all snug in his bed,
while visions of CB recipes danced in his head.

And me in my kerchief, and some critter in a cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap.

When out in the basil patch there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-CB patch
opened my eyes to the plot they had hatched

Then, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a beat up old Dodge and eight Arkansas bears.

From the back of the truck sprung a mob from this site
I knew in a moment we were in for a fight

More rapid than eagles the DGR’s came
and I called every traitor by his or her name.

Now Critter and kudzu, Ky and Celene
Debra from Garland and others unseen
Now podster and cando and Sansai and all
and secan and cyber don’t dare breech our wall.

But up to the house-top the DGR’s flew,
with the Dodge full of raiders, and loco loca too

And then, in a twinkling, on the top of our lodge
was the gnawing of rainbears and an ugly ‘ol Dodge
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Up the chimney Squatch flew with a powerful bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his tooth was all snarled and his hair full of soot.

A bundle of basil flung over his back,
he looked like a madman who was on the attack.

His eyes-how they glowed red! His tooth was real scary!
Blood dripped from his mouth like he’d eaten a cherry!

A tire from a Dodge was raised high in his hand
and the smoke from the remnants circled him like a band.

He said not a word but then turned to the bears
And they took to the sky from the fear of his stare

I heard Squatch roar as they flew out of sight

“Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight”

I’m starting a new movement for equal representation of the male mentality in plant cultivar names. I’m thinking things like a Hemerocalis ‘Chuck Norris’, Lilium ‘The Terminator’ and, of course, ‘First Blood’ in the new Rambo line of roses.
The Grump-Pas encourage you to keep this in mind, VORTREKER. Sports of chocolate basil are bound to evolve and they need to be given proper, manly names. We can start this new movement among the more open minded herb gardeners. Then, make our move in the solidly ornamental market.
I’ve come to the conclusion that the reason women dominate in ornamental gardening is a direct result of all the foo-foo plant names. As proof of my theory I submit the fact that men are well represented in vegetable gardening. It is no coincidence that vegetables have more masculine names.

If Gatorade can sell rehydrated, fruit-flavored sweat, Squatch should be able to sell dehydrated water. CB flavor, optional. I do think it should come in a superfantastic bottle, though.

Absolutely! And, to be sure that GatorAde really flies off the shelves, they should use only the rehydrated sweat from famous celebrities an, perhaps, they could get Emeril Lagasse to kick it up a notch. BTW: Do you think Emeril knows about CB?
My resolution for 2012 is to try to overcome my addiction to weird news stories.I read about the man who was caught by airport security trying to smuggle over 70 small, exotic animals out of South America hidden in his luggage and clothes. There! Doesn’t everyone feel saner now? You can understand why reading these stories is so habit forming. Did Squatch make any resolutions? Like…#1) I will be more generous with my CB in 2012.” ~N~

Anyway, I can press the "end" button and I do get right to the end of the page in nothing flat. We have no high-speed internet available here in the "sticks", nor any reliable "air", as my cell phone gets sometime coverage and that is it.

I’m the ROFLCOPTER girl. Papa Jim wouldn’t be able to explain ROFLCOPTER in a comprehensible way. He’s an old computer geek and he plays W.O.W.. Among the young and chic computer geeks, like myself, it means Rolling On The Floor Laughing Can’t Operate Properly Till Eyes Refocus.
Seacanepain is a World of Warcraft addict…uh-h-h…player and it means something a little different among Blizzardbrains. (Blizzard is the company that puts out the MMORPG. (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game called World of Warcraft. (You still with me?) I’m sure he would be willing to explain what it means in the context of World of Warcraft, but, unless you play W.O.W. yourself, the explanation would fly right passed you. I asked once. It flew passed me. W.O.W. gamers are…uh-h-h…highly creative individuals and when they come together as a group it can get….extremely creative. I do have to admit us young and chic geeks did borrow ROFLCOPTER from the Blizzardbrains, but we gave it a makeover first. Perhaps, an example of the way W.O.W. players minds work is in order. The game designers did a cute thing one Christmas where Santa came along and randomly turned players game avatars into reindeers. The gamers themselves decided it would be epic to have all the transformed avatars form a conga line and do a dance. Reindeers dancing. Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh DUH. Nuff said? Keep W.O.W. out of Squatch’s hands. ~N~

Unfortunately, I’m not able to pull off “sweet lil ole lady.” The "ole lady" part has come naturally and if I try REAL hard I can do “sweet.” I can't squeeze myself into "lil" though, no matter how much weight I lose. (I'm 6' tall. Well, closer to 5'11" these days. I think I'm shrinking. But, I don't foresee myself ever shrinking enough to qualify as "lil.") The “witchy old crone” role appears to be the only stereotype open to tall, hawk-face women. I still have a couple of years to go before the government officially classifies me as old. That’s good.

Your probably right, Celene. Squatch’s homemade blue agave hooch with Texas diamond-back rattler in place of the worms sounds more likely. America does have its very own giant earthworm but he lives in Washington and Idaho. Not what I think of as tequila country. Driloleirus americanus sightings are even more rare than Sasquatch sightings. Hm-m-m, you don’t suppose Squatch is the REASON giant Palouse earthworms are so rare? He did live in that part of the country. (Jim)

Ol Dodge previously smelled like a new Corvette???????
Squatch told me it smelled more like a swamp buggy--Loch Nestle backed him up.

Hm-m-m,orange chocolate basil biscotti?
The bellowing of bull gators, the screams of swamp cats, the smell of damp rotting vegetation, the shy splashes of manatee, the deafening roar of air boats, the pretty blinking lights of smugglers going about their nighttime business . You guys have done gone and made me homesick. You know Squatch should get the "worms" for his homemade hootch from the Everglades. He would be doing us all a favor. But, I guess he is afraid of being in The Ole Dodge's backyard. k*

Great description kudzu--have experienced all of that except "in my day" there were no smugglers.
Squatch has Loch Nestle "down there" on patrol.
Ain't no Swatch or Lochie ever been sceered of no Ol Dodge. Just look at the teeth marks in the Ol Dodge.
Have to admit though that Ol Dodge is almost as tough as mjs.

I think those hunters claims that they are looking for invasive pythons is a cover story. They are really looking for where Squatch hid the CB. ~N~

I think Squatch would eat pythons. In tequila. With a chiffonade of CB.

Squatch might enjoy a pickled python, but I wouldn’t advise that renowned wetland delicacy, Gator Tails. K talked me into ordering deep fried gator tails at a restaurant in Everglade City. It looked like chicken nuggets. No problem there. It tasted okay. No problem there. But, I chewed it and I chewed it and I chewed it some more. After chewing for about 5 minutes, it could be swallowed. With only the one tooth, it is something I would suggest Squatch pass on. Skip the reptile aft appendages and go for that Key Lime Pie!

Squatch Sez:

Never, ever, ever, ever--underestimate what 1 single Squatch tooth can can do to a pickled python.
Or an "Ol Dodge.
Or a CB smothered habanero pepper.

General Squatch's quote of the day:


"Do the best you can with what you've got."

Even if it's 1 tooth.

A Key Lime Pie has no chance of survival.

Okay, your weird news story for the week. “Woman Marries Warehouse.” It is supposedly not like the woman who married the Eiffel tower. That was love. This was a marriage of convenience. This lady has a cause. It is supposed to be about gentrification, but I don’t quite get it. But, then, I had to look up “gentrification” so it’s probably me.
Maybe, Squatch could marry something to gain attention for the equal rights for mythical creatures cause. There has been a case of a woman marrying her truck so a highly publicized wedding of Squatch and T.O.D. jumped into my mind. It jumped right back out though. That would have to be a shotgun wedding and that is not the image the Association for the Defense of Mythical Plants and Creatures wants to project. ~N~

The only big furry critters the ole Dodge is partial to big horse's...her beau lives here on the farm with her.

I'm already married. I can't marry my beloved Dakota. But, we do have a car wash and detailing date coming u on the 13th. I'm taking my wife to the botanical garden on the 14th and there is a staff truck at the Dothan Botanical Garden that Dakota has a thing for. She wants to look her best and show off her Sasquatch for President bumper sticker.
The urban renewal vs. gentrification problem makes me glad I live in the sticks. (Jim)

LOL. Be sure and visit the Culinary Herb/Spice area on the 14th.
It is the sacred birthplace of Chocolate Basil.
I built the Pergola and Squatch built the raised beds.
Before we chose to move to Texas we had 86 Herbs/Spices growing there.
But be aware that Squatch will be lurking nearby to make sure that you do not discover the remaining orphaned baby CB plants AND that Ms. Dakota does not get too chummy with Mr. Staff truck. He kinda has a thing for Dodges and is very jealous. He really was infatuated with mjs's Ol Dodge but she was way too mean for such a sweet-sensitive guy like Squatch.

Ol Dodge is NOT mean...she's just very independent...

Also wishes I'd learn how to grow more herbs besides, Purple Basil, Chocolate Mint ( ok I grow those side by side in hopes of a love affair there) and of course Rosemary grows here if even you didn't want it to. Which ok with me cause we use it alot.

As opposed to Ohio, where it grows lovely all summer, and covers itself with mildew and commits suicide slowly and unattractively every winter.

...and he doesn't eat grits! I bet they ran he and Squatch out of town when they discovered that. Does Squatch eat grits? .
At a Christmas party I went to, the hostess decorated her rosemary bush beside the front steps with timy blue lights. It was gorgeous! ~N~

Heard of 'um but

"I just ain't never seen a grit"

But Chef Squatch has recently caused me to develop a more sophisticated taste for rattlesnake tar tare with a sides of scorpion fricassee, marinated tarantula and, of course, CB coated habaneros. Ummmmmm it don't get no better than that.

VORT, You are uninformed darlin. Tarantulas have to be marinated in a top highclass rum for a week than put to smoke in a small ground hole wrapped in banana leaves.with palm wood for fuel.
You of course drink the rum which soaked the spiders.
Venus Flytrap and Kudzu salad is the best side dish.
Desert is Coffenberry pie from fresh picked coffenberrys found at any cemetary.
And NEVER bar-b-que them.
