Haphazard Rambling

With things so busy during the week, my brain is totally fried by Friday.  Kids, work, and busy schedules make for a hectic, but good, life.  At the rate I am going, every Friday might be full of rambling. 


Shall we get started?  

First off, how about this vehicle?!  I could totally drive to work in this....on good weather days only.  It is both rustic and stylish.  Be still my heart.  

I think I am in love with the mule on this farm. It seems that he likes breath mints and his name is Jack. A manly name AND fresh breath....double bonus.   

I wish this lady was my neighbor so she would share her cooking/baking projects with me.  Yum. 

A bit of rain here for the past couple of days.  *clap*clap*clap*

A co-worker told me that our recent days of fog are foretelling snow for the winter season.....oh dear. 

That reminds me I need a new Almanac.  

Later gators.....

  1. I want a really old truck more than anything, but the hubby says no. Just because he can fix them, doesn't mean he likes to.

  5. The truck kinda looks like a cross between the Muenster's jalopy and one of my husband's wooden 1950's car shelf model. I like Jack. He's too cute and "noble pig" lady makes a mean cake, even if she had to fall hard for it...ouch!

  7. I just gotta have that truck! Noble Pig is now added to my reader and THE BOSS tells me that the number of foggy mornings in August predict the number of snows for the coming winter. she keeps track and it's usually pretty accurate. If it holds true we're gonna have an easy one this year.

  9. That truck is one of a kind. And, I am fond of the manly name Jack, too. I will return later to read all the nice things people are saying about Jack, and will pretend they mean me.

  12. Cute old truck - puts me in mind of my old series III ex-army land rover! Was fabulous in many respects - but not when needing to be repaired every other week :)

  15. I don't mind driving that to work, except I will be engulfed with heat and smoke from other cars in the traffic jam to the city !

  16. Oh Yeah! I am all about that truck! I.Love.It. I showed Rambob and told him he can put it onn his winter project list if his looking for one :)

    I just added the Noble Pig to my blog list. Not sure how I ever missed taht one, it's so yummy! Thanks for the link!

    I always track the morning fogs too and it is pretty accurate predicitng the snow storms. Everyone around here thinks I am nuts when I mention it so I am glad someone has heard of this! I guess growing up a farm girl taught me something :)

  22. Farmchick -- was that open-air vehicle really for sale? Can such a contraption ride on public roadways? I would love to have something like that to run errands with -- I think it would be good with gas? -- barbara

  23. Great links...thanks! That car would be a hoot to pick my kids up from high school in...wonder if they'd ever speak to me again? Hope you are able to have a relaxing weekend.

  24. Do you have to wear seat belts to sit in it? :))

    ReplyDelete
  25. EG Wow - Don't know about the seat belts! Didn't even think about that when I saw it!

  26. Barbara - I ran across this at our small town car show. I am not sure that it really gets much use on the roadways, but it would be fun to drive around.

  27. Jen - My kids would die if I picked them up in this!

    I could not get off the Noble Pig website. I'm always looking for new ideas and lots there.

  30. Nice truck. My car is currently in the garage for a service & I had the telephone shock 2 hours ago of saying what needed doing to it. ... Yes, it's a nice truck !
