Karin, Karin
you can never cook with too many onions!!! LOL when my sister is at my house she asks me not to put so many onions in whatever I'm cooking!!! I have such an addiction also...
dinner?? Tommy Lee Jones?? do tell!!!

My RY is so allergic to onions that even the juice will make him throw-up for days.

I miss onions . . . but haven't used one in anything for 17 years!

Paula Yaussi said...

Okay - I need to know about the crickets and George! You do keep good company!

Not interesting??? Are you kidding me? I would LOVE to feed Tommy Lee Jones, play pool with George Strait, and drink a strawberry milkshake with you anytime!!! You will have to fill me in on the cricket story and I'm not waiting till we pick corn next neither!!

Ok, it is really not fair of you to do this to your readers. I mean you just casually mention, harem, Tommy Lee Jones, and George Strait all in one breath, and nothing more.
Here is what inquiring minds what to know..
What did you feed TLJ?
Is George a nice guy, and just as cute in person as on TV?
A harem? How can you just drop that bomb and not explain it? Was he like a for real sheik? You evidently hung out in classer places then Cottonpicker and I did in our growing up years. Sorry Cottonpicker, but you know that it is the truth!
And why oh why did you revive a sack full of dead crickets?

Inquiring minds want to know.


Ranch Kid said...

I am completely and utterly jealous you got to play pool with GEORGE STRAIT!

Karin said...

LOL! Patience, patience my dear readers. I'll answer all lingering questions in due time; however, I have a prior engagement and must not tarry.
