SKYDIVING! To soar with the birds and to drift with the wind and look at the land below and it appears as a colorful quilt. So peaceful and quiet. I only did it once, it was a birthday gift from a guy I was dating. I hadn't even landed and wanted to go again! Alas, back surgery will prevent a return flight. Although I may consider it when I'm 80-90 y/o and may be willing to risk it!

Have you ever done something that other people may consider dangerous or risky?

YUP I took a ride with a stranger. Never do that... well unless the car is strange too. An unpainted fiberglass model T body with a big engine, big tires and a driver with a big smile. But, at the time I thought if I'm in an accident, my mother will NEVER understand. MY family had model T's - but all faithfully restored to Henry's plans. I didn't worry about anything else...much.It was an open car with no doors, I figured if he tried anything I could alway jump out and run.

34 years later he's still building cars and I'm still riding with him, and I've never had to run.

Question, Question what can I ask ?

O.K. Spring is here, we're outside again.

What is the most unusual / unexpected thing you have found while cleaning up the yard ?

found a garter snake in an alberta spruce, just hanging around above the fish pond. tried to convince it to move back into the woods with a rake. it didn't WANT TO!

Have you ever had a treehouse and slept in it?

I've never had my own tree house, but we built one for our daughters. It had a 4x8 platform and was big enough that they could take a pup tent up there - it was a favorite hide out for when they wanted to get away from things for a while as teens........


Now we live in a home at the top of the ridge in Grand Rapids with 3 large picture windows in the living room (on the north side of the house) - right at tree level! I really enjoy watching the birds at their leveland feel like I am in tree house every day.

Speaking of trees, when Dale & I were first married we drove past a house with a spectacular Maple tree in front yard every day on our way to and from work. After 3 years we bought the tree (it came with a house too) and lived there for the next 10 years!

Have you ever bought a house because of a tree or other outdoor feature?

yes! in fact it was the one the snake came to visit!

it was a small (20x30) foot cape cod with doghouse dormers. its best feature was the 35 year old tiny leaf maple in the back yard. it started branching at about 3 feet from the ground and had stepping size branches where my kids could climb waaaaay up.
that yard was next to a cemetery which had not been used since 1840 and it was a jungle of brush and trees in the middle of a city. no neighbors on that side for 400 feet. the fireflies provided their magic each summer. the maple waited until all the other trees in the neighborhood were stripped bare of leaves in the fall, then it turned crimson and was glorious for a long time after everything else was bare. a happy place.

(it was happier after i jacked up the stairway and replaced all the plumbing)

if you are gardeners, what flower do you wait for each year?

When I finally see "Jack-in-the-pulpit" peeking his nose up from behind the currant bushes I know that spring has finally come. We now have about 30 of these thingsback there.The first one came from my Dad's garden.
What can YOU do in a canoe?

Unhappy

I could paddle around looking for OKRA im my canoe.

Is it possible the site was hacked because of the OKRA thread?

Okra?,

Twenty six years ago I moved onto the family land after we were given 3.5 acres if we promised to move back to SC from Florida so we could grow the grandchild nearer to the grandparents. We built the first part of our house...a 12x 24 foot two story shed, built an out house, had a well drilled, (away from the outhouse!) and then dug a large garden area and planted peanuts, sweet potatoes and OKRA. Everything grew very well the first year and so we had a great crop of OKRA to eat throughout the winter. In the South we often laugh about Northerners thinking that grits is truly the only Southern food...we have tried secretly to hide the fact that OKRA is the one and only crop that matters to Southerners. I have no doubt that this thread was raided in an attempt to hide the truth about OKRA not by Northerners as you might have surmised but instead by SOUTHERNERS who are attempting to control the OKRA Market just as De Beers is controlling the Diamond Market...although in my opinion OKRA is more valuable by far!

Question: Which is more valuable on the World Market...OKRA or diamonds?

Randy in SC

Actually it is diamonds. You can't mount okra in a ring. And diamonds are a girls best friend!!!

Really, I have found a good set of vice grips a girls best friend. They open stuck jars, hold nails to hang pictures, work on odd shaped nuts or bolts, and originated in Nebraska .

What do you all consider your best friend, that isn't furry

That it comes after supper.
Would just charging up the battery from the tug in the morning be as good all that cash into a generator or solar set up??

Well, actually it probably wouldn't be much different than now- except I'd have more calluses and fewer kids........


I like both OKRA and GRITS, so here'smy question-
Anybody got a recipe that uses both OKRA and GRITS?

That would be called a "recipe for disaster".

Speaking of which, what type of fellow camping disasters have you witnessed while camping?

At the dump station, watched some people with a rented motorhome put the hose through the window to clean out the toliet and then used the same hose to fill the fresh water tank with water from the spigot marked not potable water.

What did you break while you were camping and not paying attention????
