Friday Randoms


The Queen Anne's Lace is drying up just a bit, but it is quite photogenic.  

I haven't been to see the movie yet, but I am in love with the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack.  You can enjoy it right here.  

Fabulous tomato recipe right here.  Since I picked my first Cherokee Purple tomato last night, I am going to need all of the tomato recipes I can get in the next few weeks.  

In case you were wondering, I did not bring home a baby opossum. Secret Agent Farmer Man was so relieved.    However, there are five who need homes!  I hear they are growing strong on a diet of corn on the cob, milk, and hot dogs.......

I cannot tell you how sad the passing of Robin Williams made me.  Here is a clip of just one of his many cinematic endeavors.  

I'll catch up with everyone this weekend!

  1. The Queen Anne's Lack drying up leads me to think we are slowly but surely headed for fall, which I love. No opossum...boo hoo!

  2. Possums make good pets and are naturally litter box trained. Even if you take care of them, they just don't have long lives it seems. They have better behavior than some pets that I have been around.

  4. That soundtrack of Guardians of The Galaxy had me 'dancin' all round the room' . . . You should have seen me!! if anyone had have actually seen me they would have declared me nuts . . . . . and sent me to the funny farm. Guardians of the Galaxy music and eccentric ex-ambulance men are a very dangerous mix . . . . lol

    Those possums sound such nasty creatures even brought up as pets . . . No thank you! . . .

    Yes, I too was very sad about Robin Williams. We know him very well in England and he will be sadly missed everywhere.
    Several in my ambulance company were a little like him, including one on my latest post. He was a riot . . . .loved him to bits.

    I think you will find this interesting and moving ~ Eddie

  7. Michelle, don't you just love Cherokee Purple tomatoes? Ugly as homemade sin but, oh, the taste!!! Have you ever made tomato pie? I've used Paula Deen's recipe and it was wonderful. I used really sharp cheddar, along with some pepper jack, and whatever other kind of cheese I had. It was glorious.

  8. since possums are known to carry EPM (an equine neurological disease that can kill) i do not welcome them here. my dogs have dispatched a few for me.

  10. I'm glad you didn't bring the possum home! I haven't heard of Cherokee Purple tomatoes..I'll have to look for them. Good luck with your crop- and salsa is always a good choice when you have too many extras. js..I love salsa!

  16. Your photo of Queen Anne's Lace had me looking twice for a little hatching in it's nest - it looks downy soft like a bird's nest. Beautiful capture.

  24. Your photo is gorgeous. I have never seen this stage before. Only yesterday I was chatting to our son about that soundtrack. He said it was great, as was the movie. He wants to take me to see it. We also chatted about Robin Williams and said how sad we all were about his untimely passing. Baby possums? Hope they find a good home. Thanks for the links and for the recipe. Going to check them out right now.
