John Anderson Lyrics

“Seminole Wind”

Ever since the days of old,
Men would search for wealth untold.
They’d dig for silver and for gold,
And leave the empty holes.
And way down south in the Everglades,
Where the black water rolls and the saw grass sways.
The eagles fly and the otters play,
In the land of the Seminole.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Progress came and took its toll,
And in the name of flood control,
They made their plans and they drained the land,
Now the glades are going dry.
And the last time I walked in the swamp,
I sat upon a Cypress stump,
I listened close and I heard the ghost,
Of Osceola cry.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

This reminds me of our Purr. We rescued him from an outside cat fighting to survive. After he got use to us and being indoors he never wanted to go outside again. He went from fierce fighter to big lover. Hugs

Dennis sent us some pictures of his special friend.

The first one is about a week after she showed up in my backyard. Yes, SHE chose me to be her obedient servant, and care for her royal needs accordingly. In the second, she’s a couple months older. And see her sticking her tongue out, in the third? She’s quite the character.

and the reforestation project

I know some of my viewers do not like videos and some struggle with English.  However this is an important video.  This video explains how one group were able to help a group of people and stop deforestation.  This is important.   Plus it shows you what I watch while I am reading your blogs.   I an not simply anti trump, I am pro helping making a better world for all of us.   Hugs

meatless sausage ??? Help

Yesterday Ron and I went to the grocery store that is about a mile or two down the road, it is our favorite.  However it has a crappy small vegetarian section.  We picked up a few things to try.

Well this morning we tried the veggie breakfast sausages.   Taste wise they were OK, smelt good, but the texture was awful.   Maybe I  did not cook them enough but I followed the instructions.  I baked them for 14 minutes.  Next time I will fry the crap out of them.  They were soft and sort of mushy.  I threw most of mine in the trash.  Ron agreed with me they tasted OK but had to fix the soft mushiness of them.  

Ron used some of the beefless ground in the spanish rice he made last night.  We are adding rice to our diet several times a week.  It was OK, I am not a fan of spanish rice but I did not find anything awful about it.  I did not even know he had put some in there until he told me. 

Ron tried the chicken patties the other day.  He said they were OK.  They did smell good.  Ron wants to make taco mix out of tofu and the meatless ground burger stuff.   I am hoping the seasoning mix will  make it OK, I hate to buy stuff to eat and then have to throw it out.  

I admit it is hard to walk past the long meat counter and displays full of easy to find and get products that I know taste good to me.  But Ron And I talked about it.   We both feel meat is not the same as it was when we were growing up.   We don’t feel it is a safe nor as good for us as it use to be.   We feel that in fact it may be bad for us to continue to eat such amounts of meat.   That said we did buy a large ham that was on sale, as ham is one of my favorites.  

So if anyone has some ideas, let me know.  Brands or items to try.  I am going to make a chili tomorrow for the first time without meat.  Should be OK, I will use beans to give it texture and substance.   Hugs
