Cash is no Longer Legal Tender in Louisiana

Law says you can't pay cash for used items.  How fucking stupid is that??????

My First Pumpkin Pie

Made my first pumpkin pie yesterday.  This ain't my first rodeo(pie making), just my first ride in this event.    In the process used up the shortening we had on hand and the salt.  Only salt left is in the salt shakers.  Also used a can of pumpkin and a can of evaporated milk.  Less stuff to pack and move next week.

In the words of The Old Lady, "It's edible."

I May Join Whoever This is Next Month

Who's Gonna Feed Them Hogs??

The Old Lady's brother-in-law has a few hogs and has discovered that when you have animals you are tied down by them.  The fact that he was only able to bring his wife here to the airport and then had to head home again brought this song to mind. This song is for you Tracy.

Next Month

Next month I'll probably need to change the title of this blog as I'll no longer be in Crackerland and have no plans to return to Crackerland except maybe to visit, but that's highly unlikely.  On the first of next month we should be unloading the U-Haul(or is it Y'all-Haul down here in Crackerland??) into the storage unit UP on the Tundra.  I rented a storage unit to put all of our stuff into and the stuff will stay in the storage unit until it's been cold enough, long enough, to kill any critters that hitch a ride with our stuff.

I have been kicking around several ideas for a new blog title:  Yooper No Longer in Crackerland; Yooper Has Left Crackerland; Crackerland, This Yooper Not There; Yooper Has Said Goodbye to Crackerland......

I thought I had the "Paddle faster" thing stored on this confuser, but when I went looking for it, couldn't find it(too much guano), had to google it.  The Old Lady will be pissed that I used it before she got a chance to do it.

The Difference Between Tea-Baggers and OccupyWallStreet

This Old Fart is making a lot of sense, unlike the Tea-Baggers.

They're Still Fighting the DIRTY FUCKING HIPPIES After All These Years

It took the corporate media almost a month to start reporting on the protests going on around the country.  When the media did have anything on OccupyWallStreet, the comments I heard from most of the pundunce (that is the plural for pundit, ain't it??) were things like they need some deodorant(DIRTY), stop making love(FUCKING), and they need to get a job(HIPPIES).  That tells me they are still fighting the DIRTY FUCKING HIPPIES long after most of the hippies went mainstream and are now part of the establishment!!

Watch live streaming video from globalrevolution at

You do have to admire an idea or philosophy that has had the establishment shitting bricks for fifty years.  There has always been a small percentage of every generation that has believed in some of the ideals of the hippies.  The ideals have changed or evolved(no wonder conservatives hate them) thru the years.   Some of these ideals have been around longer than the hippies, if fact, that's part of what the Declaration of Independence was about in 1776.

Instead of reforming Wall Street or creating jobs they want to kill PBS and NPR and pass bills that oppress women.
The pundunce also have been saying they don't know what the protesters want.  The name OccupyWallStreet should have been a huge clue.  They want economic justice, they've seen Wall Street get bailed out while all the rest of the streets paid for it.  Instead of those who caused the financial mess being put in jail, they got multi-million dollar bonuses.  The pundunce also say the protesters hate capitalism, NO, THEY HATE THE OVERT FUCKING  GREED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
