On Yankee dogs and awesome possums
A danggum Boston Terrier!
A Mississippi Leg Hound woulda been more fittin' for a redheaded redneck stepchile.
If we think we can actually stay up that late, Dr. ER and I plan to usher in the new year at this here establishment of chance, although I will spend some time across the highway at a beer joint listenin' to the Awesome Possum Band, a genyoowine outlaw band fronted by one of my best friend's nephew.
However, I have alerted the eastern Okie fam that I reserve the right to spend Saturday sittin' in a lawn chair in my front yard with a garden hose if it looks like these get close to the house!
So, what're y'allses' plans for New Year's Eve?
Have a nice New Year's. We don't have any plans. Just might watch DVDs in front of the fire and call it good!
Good luck with those fires. We had round of those here. :(
Yes, I think I have it all now.
A typical Yankee dog.
You plannin' on wearin' overhauls without a shirt, wearin' a bent straw hat and tuggin' on a corn-cob pipe with all the other eastern Oklahoma Arkansans? That is whatch'all call y'allselves, ain't it?
Ah, my mind's eye is working OT right now. ER amongst his folk.
It really does sound like a lot of fun.
Teditor, I might well break out my dress overalls for the occasion!
Not cheap. But great food and atmosphere! Valet parking!
You won't know you're in Oklahoma City (except for the one guy among a party of eight in the main dining room wearin' his dang gimme cap at the table! An ou cap, of course). :-)
Dry family. Sucks.
Well, Happy New Year's ER. And while I'm sure you have many friends out there, if my some chance (God forbid) the grass fires threaten your home you got a place to stay in Goldsboro. Look me up if you're ever around here, emergency or not.
Anon, For $32, I got three -- THREE scallops. One au gratin, one casino and one blackened. Three.
Cracked me up. Oh, they came with two little carrots, three or four asparagus and some mashed taters. But three scallops.
The thing is, tho, they were extremely flavorful, and the next time I want to taste something good and still have room for dessert, and don't mind spending $50-something dollars (dessert and two glasses of wine and coffee), I'll do it again.
Nonna's is definitely a special occasion kind of place.
To all y'all: Fixing to hit the road. Happy new year!
Tonight i'll have a few toasts to bring in 2006 right. i hope that you guys will be doing the same (minus a hose).
Happy New Year!
That said, I had friends over for dinner last night and we had all kinds of southern food -- grits, ham, greens, cornbread and black-eye'd peas planned for tomorrow.
(Post on dinner is over at feedmedrinkme.blogspot.com)
By the way, I hope that dawg's eyeballs don't bug out. This ol' boy I grew up with had several Boston Terriers throughout the years. One of 'em's eyes kept poppin' out. The vet eventually just took one of the eyes out and sowed the socket shut. I've killed, gutted, and cleaned many an animal - but seeing a little dog run around with its eye hanging out was more than a little disconcerting.
Thought I'd check in...
The wife and I are sitting by a little bonfire in the back yard across from the pole barn, sippin' on an adult beverage, listenin' to George and Conway and Hank Jr and The Man In Black on the Outlaw Country station on the Satellite Radio. (Is that high-tech Redneck enuff for ya?)
Hope you and all of yours are havin' as good a time as we are...
I'll be back to spar and jab next year.
Tonight, I just want to celebrate the fact that we've all made through this one...
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
(and no it is not fireworks)
You would think I was in Bagdad or back in Nam, but no it is New Years in the middle of Oklahoma City. Who says the wild west has been tamed? May the new year of 2006 bring you all satified minds and peace at heart.
Years before,in Wichita, I remember a pregnant woman was kiled by an errant bullet fired in celebration of the New Year. Why these idiots don't understand the concept of "what goes up must come dowm" is beyond me.
I'll try to get there at least eight times next year. Sure did miss bein' at more Chiefs games this year.
My wish to each of ya is a truly happy new year and that you enjoy the world of blogging in whatever capacity you see fit. Hopefully none of us take it too personal and enjoy the debates, discussions and rabble-rousing that's been associated this past year.
May God continue to bless us all.
Still Life, :-)
Braingirl, I forgot all about The Coach House. Fine dinin' indeed. Nonna's, in Bricktown, competes.
Rem, you been missed, bud.
Tug, sounds like a fine time. Keep that dang bonfire AWAY from here, tho!
All, How in THE hell did it get to be 2006?!?
