Stumbled across this odd novelty song from 1965 last night. The weirdest part about this is the singer isn't known for singing or comedy - he's best known as a songwriter, author and producer. I'd love to know the story behind this.
The corn we got the other day from Davy's was fresh-picked that morning and it was so good! I did have to eat some. And I guess I talked about it so much that my daughter went back and got a couple dozen for herself and did the cutting and freezing. I know she'll enjoy it "when the snow flies"!
I didn't get a whole lot done today because Frankie just started some new medecine and it reacted on her so badly that they sent her home from work. She didn't go home. She came here and was here the rest of the day! I made some chicken noodle soup while she was here and we both ate it. Turned out pretty good!
Then when she left, I did a little laundry and made my supper! Almost forgot...she was here when I came home from breakfast with some of my former high school classmates. That was a nice start for an otherwise down day!
Now I'm off to the haystack! I wish Everyfriend a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow! And may God bless us, every one!

Amy, we no longer have the ethnic stores and groceries I so love and don't think they'll return. I agree about canned/bottled garden foods.
I barter for game meat which arrives frozen double wrapped in the white paper; moose, mountain goat, Dall sheep, partridge, bear, and hare. I also receive halibut, king crab, rainbow trout, grayling, sheefish, and salmon. It's all cleaned up, sectioned, and frozen but not preserved or canned.
I make my own sauces, dressings, condiments, and yougart.
To my mother's dismay, I never learned to can and did mainly meal prep and preserving. Now I don't do that. For one person, it wasn't realistic. But what you and Jane do has my stomach trying to talk my brain into it.

Good morning, Amy, Jane, and Lloyd! It's been back in the rain clouds for us here in the Interior, with only 57 presently and later 73.
I have nothing scheduled except for some phone calls and waiting for a couple of packages. It has been so long since I've dealt with regular mail; how long does flat rate take these days? I've been down to the office so often that the guys tell me no before I can say a word.
Jane, you and Amy have been busy this summer, while I've rarely been to each of the local farmer's markets. I need a new energy source!
