Memorial Day Weekend

I totally forgot about the rest of the world as I get settled. Everyone else in the county is going to be camping, hiking and much more. Almost everyone gets a three day weekend to get out of Dodge. Whoops! Changed my plans for the weekend real quick. I wondered why I wasn't hearing any... Continue Reading →

Getting that Booty

So as not to embarrass any species of insect, bird or animal, I have substituted the actual species names with proper West Coast Redneck slang terms Wow! What a day.
