what a fun weekend...... and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JOHNNY BOY....we had Johnny's birthday party on Saturday. A lot of fun....I know you really shouldn't try out new recipes for a party but you know me, let's just throw caution to the wind and do exactly that! haha.....but it turned out great. I was worried about grilling due to the chance of storms so I made Low Country Boil and man oh man....it was good! So you boil up some Old Bay Seasoning and a bag of crab boil. Then you throw in some little potatoes.....I used some very small red skin potatoes. After about 10 min, throw in some corn on the cob that you have broken in half. After about 5 min, throw in some sausage......I used Kielbasa or ever how you spell it...sliced. Then throw in some shrimp and lemon slices.....of course this only takes a few minutes and the shrimp are ready. It turned out great...I also had some cold dishes to go along with it....ice box slaw, 3 bean salad, fruit tray, veggie tray, cheese tray and some cold asapragus.
Then on Sunday we went to the horse track and had so much fun. Didn't really win any money but it was still a good time. Came home and pulled out all of the leftovers for everyone to munch on.
Today Johnny and I were off of work......we went down to the Dept of Vital Statistics..whoa....such a long, long line! But at least it moved fast and we got a new birth certificate for Johnny boy as his did not have the state seal. NOW...now he can go get his passport. I'm going to get this guy to travel out of the country...eventually!!
And we're off again tomorrow....whoo hoo! So we were sitting out on the deck this evening and Johnny asked me what I plan on doing tomorrow....I told him I was going to spend the majority of the day working in my flower garden. So he gets up and goes out to the flower garden and just kind of starts poking around.......I ask him what he's up to and he said just looking for something. I ask what (here's my mistake) and he said a snake.....yes, that's right, a damn stinking rotten good for nothing scares the hell out of me please dear god why did you put them on earth SNAKE!! He then tells me that he found one on Saturday and chopped it in half with a shovel but when he went to pick up the other half....the half with the head, it was gone! Oh freakin no....for the love of all that is good, where the hell is the rest of the snake!! He said no worries, it's dead by now but guess what, I don't go for that stuff....and now, I know I will have nightmares tonight about this.
and now, I get to spend the rest of the summer from my deck......looking out at my neglected flower garden and wondering where in the hell the half killer snake is!!
