The authorities that be have started to setting out the traffic control cones etc. for the big July 4 events at the water park. By Friday they will have all the traffic under control for the event. They are good at it. Personally the Teams will be really glad when the mess is over.

The photos are not many these days. It is the summer doldrums pictures wise but we still keep on trying. We caught a bumble bee actively working on a flower blossom and got this great picture of a bee butt.

It came to the OFM that we had the ingredients for some great stoup if he got off it and got busy. Sure enough it was excellent. The ingredients list has brown rice, chopped chicken, okra, onions, broccoli, cracked black pepper, minced garlic and a couple of left over crackers crumbled into it.

Heat to boiling, simmer seven minutes and allow to cool before moving it to one meal size containers. We got five meals out of it. Yep it is good. If the OFM did baking he would serve it with fresh baked cornbread and smile all the way to a nap afterward. Now that sounds like a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Covered with water? I didn't find a liquid that I could heat to boiling? Sounds good, though. I wish you were my cook. I'd like to do the eating without the trouble of cooking. You always come up with different, healthy stoups.

  2. Try hot water cornbread. No baking!

  3. If that's a bee butt, it's wings are on backwards. :O)

    1. Looks like the angle of the picture fooled you. It was definitely taken from the back end at about 4 inches.

  4. So nice to see a bumblebee from no matter what angle. They have been in short supply around here for years. Makes me sad. Glad to see they still exist.

  5. Looks good. Never seen okra before.
