The boys say hi…

Coldest day of the year so far, and I was up on T&S’s mesa at first light to let the dogs out – blessing gifts of warm winter clothes from generous readers for my relative comfort.

The boys say hi…


…then down off the plateau and the long way around to Landlady’s to swap out chicken waterers. The batteries in the powershed always keep the temp in there above freezing, so that’s where the spare waterers go.


The frozen one goes against the wall where the high-altitude sun will melt it no matter whether the ambient temperature gets above freezing today or not.

And now…mocha. Me so decadent.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Joel, the next time you are in town and have a few spare bucks, get a small bottle of Kahlúa and a small bottle of Grand Marnier. Then, the next time you have a mocha, just add a half ounce of Kahlúa and a half ounce of Grand Marnier to the drink and presto, you’re drinking a Monty Christo. Now that’s being decadent. ☕ 🙂

    Maybe you’ve mentioned it and I’ve just forgotten, but how do Tobie and the boys get along?

  3. Robert says:

    Mike: Being ignorant regarding various boozes, I hadta google Grand Marnier…

    “A 750ml bottle of Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge is roughly $30, while the Cordon Jaune is typically around $50, and Grand Marnier Quintessence is around the $800 mark.”

    Which do you recommend for Joel’s coffee?

  4. Joel says:

    With more familiarity I think they’d get along great. At least he and the smaller one would enjoy playing. The bigger one is more reticent. But as it is they haven’t more than briefly met.

  5. Mike says:

    @ Robert… The Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge is what I use, and the small 200ml bottle is only $15 Canadian at our LCBO..

    If I pay $15/a mL, it had better wash my dishes, too. And have nice tits.

  7. Joel says:

    And make my bed, and change the oil in my car, and sooth my aching brow…

  8. Mike says:

    @ Tennessee Budd… You think that’s expensive? Don’t ever check out the price of good single malt scotch, reading the numbers on the price tag will give you the vapors. 🤣

    BTW what I pay is in Canadian dollars, so it’s not that expensive.

To the stake with the heretic!
