Random Five Friday


A small spot of green on an otherwise cold, gray day.  

Is there any hope left for the universe now that the Captain and Tennille are divorcing?  I thought love was going to keep them together. 

My son ordered a new coyote call and had it shipped to my work address.  When it was delivered my principal asked if he could take a look at it.  That is some small town living right there, people. 

My son introduced me to the program Mick Dodge.  Interesting as he does seem like quite an intelligent fellow, but seriously I am not about sleeping in a tree stump, not even for a weekend. 

Do you need to make a quick pizza crust?  Try this recipe.  It turned out great for me this week.   

Linking up with Nancy today!  Stop by and say hi!

  6. I'll have to return to check out Mick Dodge - he looks the thing fairy tales are made of . . . until this moment, I'd never heard of him.

    Pizza? Oh, it's been years . . . yum!!!!

  9. I've met Mick Dodge as well (as my crew watches this out of the ordinary guy on TV)
    Have to wonder just how long he has REALLY been living out there?

  10. The last I heard, the Captain was in real bad health so it could be related to that somehow.
    Coyote calls are usually small animals in distress such as rabbits or baby deer since that is what coyotes eat
    among other things. They are a non native species that has invaded our area and even eat fox and other predators,
    they are not a good thing.

  11. Seriously- I have thought all this time that the Captain and Tennille were brother and sister. I've not heard of Mike Dodge. But one of my very first favorite books was "The Other Side of the Mountain" Of course it would be nuts - but when I was young, I was fascinated by the story.

  12. Gosh, it's been so long I had forgotten the Captain and Tennille even still existed.

  16. The Captain and Tennille are divorcing? After all this time? That's sad. Haven't heard anything about them in years. Love that spot of green!

  17. I love your photo!
    I was surprised to hear about Captain and Tenille. They were married 39 years and are in their 70's. You'd think they would be set!
    I just recently saw something about Mick Dodge. Not for me either. :)

  19. Captain and Tennille, go figure! I'm not sure what a coyote call is, but I am wondering why someone would want to call coyotes!

  21. When my son was a kid he had a coyote call of sort, but can't remember who gave it to him. It was useless here, but he found it very fun!

  22. There is nothing like small town living...we were having trouble with our sewer lines and had to rent a rotor rooter...we were talking to the hardware owner and saying how glad we we were that it was not on a Sunday/holiday...he gives us his cell phone number till if it ever happens and he is anywhere close...he will come open up and let us get the rotor rooter. Now that is small town living at its best.

  23. I have no clue what you're talking about, lol, but I love your very pretty photo. It could be a card!

  24. I'll have to check out that pizza crust recipe. My hubby has been begging for pizza lately!

  25. Oh, my! I have to tell you that I have no idea what a coyote call is but I love your story. I must confess I can't remember the last time I thought about the Captain and Tenille so I doubt their divorce will cause me much sadness. She waited long enough, they're not spring chickens! Great post!

  30. Love the splash of green today, I need that! The divorce was one headline I couldn't believe when I read it.

  31. I grew up in a very small town....47 in my senior class! I understand! I also heard that Captain is really sick, and they are divorcing so their fortune doesn't go to doctors and hospitals. Who knows if it's true. I've always like them. One way or the other, it's very sad.

  32. I didn't know there was such a thing as a coyote call! We have them here - and one nearly killed and ate my dog.. rascally things. Buddy survived and I'm pretty proud of him! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  33. Um, coyote calls and Mick Dodge are not regular parts of the conversation in either Naples or Hartford. We live different kinds of lives, Sweetheart.

  34. Love that photo. I hear the divorce is really not a divorce, something about getting him more help for medical reasons that he can only get if they were'nt married.

  35. Coyote calls? Hmmm, The Captain and Tennille? I hope Randy is correct.
