  • Christmas in the south!

    It must be that Christmas is just around the corner. Yesterday Mama decorated the house with what little bit of Christmas decorations that she's hung on to. And this morning there's Christmas music on the stereo in the livingroom and mama's out in the kitchen baking Snickerdoodles! The only thing missing is snow out on the front lawn and a roaring fireplace. But this is Florida so we have to be satisfied with 80 degree temperatures, flowers and shrubs still blossoming, and Ibis pecking for bugs in the garden, with squirrels burying acorns under the oak trees. By the way, it's expected that on Christmas Eve Santa will be wearing shorts, sporting his new sandals, and have all his reindeer outfitted with sunglasses!

        It's the tropics, raining and raining and raining. Yesterday I decorated the house with a large glass Santa. There's Christmas music on the stereo in the living room mainly for the cats... and I am in the kitchen making mango chutney, lemon curd, and apple butter in jars. The kitten Momo is running up and down my curtains, turn up the music so I do not have to listen to things crashing to the floor. I have not seen real snow in forty years, and to hot for a fireplace. But this is Hawaii, so we have to be satisfied with 70-degree temperatures, flowers and trees still blossoming, and big green lizards pecking for bugs in the garden, with mongoose (no squirrels) chasing the chickens for dinner. and B-2 bomber roaches flying in the air. By the way,
        I am very mad at Santa because I have not gotten my new Lamborghini Aventador. yet !!! Best friend told me not to ask for the car because I will drive the darn thing like an old lady and that would be sad.

          73°F here in Louisiana at the moment - rained an hour ago, and now the humidity is thick enough to spoon into a bucket. My gardenias are still blooming, and my cherry tomato plant is still producing...

            Eddy as he travles west to Alabama he has one arm in his coat and one leg in his long pants. He never knows what will be happening here. Sunny warm or Rainy and wet or a icey plam tree.

                I remember those cockroaches but not from Hawaii, from Japan. We use to kid that when they landed up at Fukuoka Air Base they'd get them half filled up with fuel before they realize they were cockroaches. The **** things would scare the hell out of you when in the middle of the night they'd buzz you in the house. The only things worse were the benjo spiders that got in through the sink and Ofuda drainages, and the rats up in the attic.

                  Where you at Joe? I saw a post on Facebook the other day of what looked like two front doors but was actually snow that had fallen over the level of the door and compacted against the really. All I could think of was that I hoped the guy remembered to bring his snow shovel inside before the storm.

                    We have a saying here the cockroaches are so big they move the furniture around at night. Which in turn came the Hawaii slang for someone cockroach my house....which means broke in and stole few things. The only thing that crawls up through the sink here is darn nine-inch centipedes and rats crawl up the toilet pipes. Nothing worst than sitting on the toilet at night and hearing something inside the darn toilet. Happen to me once and scared me to death...I hate rats we got tons of them here.

                        Interesting. I never pictured Nevada with snow. One of the few states that I've never visited.
