Hows the little kitty doing😀
I too use charcoal. Its a pain and its trickier to control the temp and takes a higher learning curve and skill set than propane. Steak and ribs,
any meat tastes so much better cooked over charcoal.
I set up the grill about twice a week. Its a major pain. I have to arrange it just so and watch the flames like a hawk. Usually a good time to have
a beer in my hands. If i get careless then i find in the morning shriveled up heliconia and plumeria leaves. Zazzy and mockingbird sit closest to
the grill and zazzy is quite showey this season. Id hate to have the real zazzy kick my butt for not respecting her aptly named flowers. I should
also move the taro further away from the kettle now that i think about it. But in the end charcoal and real fire engages the caveman base instincts
in me, which i enjoy.
I cooked a rib eye prime cut all by my lonesome yesterday for labor day. Then promptly fell asleep.
Hi everybody from the thread. Im sorry ive been away the last week or two. Been busy. But also been disturbed by the behaviour of a friend of mine
i semi watch over. Hes schizophrenic and a raging alcoholic too. Over the last two weeks ive had to stop him from executing revenge on random
people over several paranoid delusional conspiracies.
Hes accussed random neighbors of killing his mothers friend who died while drunk driving into head on traffic on a highway the next state over.
Almost got arrested for banging on their door at 3am calling them murderers.
Then a few days later believed his mother, who has a mutual restraining order on him (she shot him with a .38 two years ago...on purpose) killed his
14 year old dog via poisoning somehow although she died in bed from old age with him in his apartment alone together.
In response he violated the restraining order and broke into his moms house in the middle of the night and stoll her dog and attempted to poison it.
I had to walk almost two miles on foot in the middle of a job to his apartment. Pick his locks, get in and rescue the little sh!tzu who wouldnt go
anywhere near the tainted food he had left out. Poor dog was licked up aline all day in the apartment barking like mad and peed all over the place.
His landlord is trying to evict him. Not for the crazy schizoid behaviour but because he keeps drunk driving and crashing his beat up car into the
apartment building at night.
Hes tried to physically fight me twice in the last week. Is passed out drunk on the sidewalk clutching a bottle of booze by 11am every morning.
Lately hes leaving me messages telling me he owns me and not to cross him.
I grew up with the guy but am fixing to abandon him. I just cant take it anymore. He wont take his anti psychotics. Wont stop drinking. Chain
smokes 2 packs a day, i had to force him physically to take a shower the other day, as in shoved him in to a shower and physically held him under
the water while he protested. He only showers no joke about once maybe twice a week.......and becuase he looks sorta like brad pitt on a bender.
Hes got a different floozie hes picked up at the local hollywood bars the night before running terrified from his apartment crying every other
He just called 10 minutes ago at 6am wondering if im coming over to hang out with him.
Ive now resorted to not talking to him period. Not picking up the phone. Not returning calls. Ive done all i can to help the guy. He calls up to a
dozen times a day. he needs serious medical supervision which i cant provide nor will he partake in.
So ive been away from the shed.
Returning to my home and my lovely accasian shire to be with my family and friends here. I feel semi like a failure returning home. The other half
just happy to be around people like you folk.
So im back and happy to be here.
Ive not posted much. But all that will change as halloween approaches. I got ghost stories and other assorted personal paranormal occurrences to
share that will leave you wondering. Can all this really have happened to one guy? Even over a lifetime? Is he making this all up? But it will
be safe to say ill be filling up pages with ghost stories here in the shed in about a months time.
Hope everybodies been ok since ive been partially away.
I miss everybody.
