"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

P.S., no, it should not be construed that I have done ALL the things in the first list, although I have done quite a number of them. It just seems to me that all of these types of lists convey a certain viewpoint, and I just wanted to entertain the idea that other things can be done before one goes into "mid-life crisis shock." Cheers to all!

So, list the ones in green that you have done from my list.

On Wednesday, January 17, 2007 11:11:00 PM, Blogger Kelly wrote...

Can't say that I have ever done any of those exact things.

I have, however:

1-eaten collard greens;
2-watched someone make pickled watermelon rinds;
3-participated in making a big ole' pot of molasses;
4-have a can of "canned" road kill; 5-made pancakes starting with a bucket of wheat;
6-heated an apartment by leaving the oven door open;
7-heated a mobile home with karosene;
8-caught "lightnin' bugs";
9-chased deer out of my backyard;
10-chased a cow out of my front yard;
11-been sprayed by a skunk;
12-watched a tractor pull;
13-skinned a deer;
14-eaten deer jerkey;
15-knew a guy name "Smiley Joe";

eaten vienna sausages?

things that make you go:

Don't like vienna sausages, eh, Nanc?

I can only take them in very light moderation...once in a blue moon.

On Thursday, January 25, 2007 4:44:00 PM, Blogger Phelonius wrote...

The proper combination is BEER + vienna sausages + some form of hot sauce.

On Thursday, January 25, 2007 4:57:00 PM, Blogger Kelly wrote...

I am guessing that the hot sauce is to drown out the taste of the other two ;)

On Wednesday, January 31, 2007 5:12:00 PM, Blogger Phelonius wrote...

Heck no. Salsa, peppers, Louisiana red sauce, Picante....all of these things are consumed in prodigious amounts regardless of what the main course is, in this part of Texas at any rate. Hot sauce is considered a major food group and no self-respecting Texan would dream of presenting a meal without some on the table.

We had some guys from India stay with us a few years back. We had a difficult time trying to find things they could eat (since they couldn't eat meat.)

One night we had had chips and salsa. Then next night we served pancakes. We showed them how to pour the syrup on the pancakes and they looked at us like...ick...that is just too sweet. Then one of them asked if he could have that salsa stuff from the night before on his pancakes.

He has since moved to the United States and buys a bag of pancake mix and a jar of salsa...he tells his family...this is what they eat over here.
