  1. I don't know why they call them "heirloom", but we've found they're one of the best reasonably priced small oranges. Probably just a marketing description, but we buy them when available.
  2. Also I've Been Loving You Too Long. Too bad many only know him from Sitting on the Dock. He was a magnificent singer/performer.
  3. Okies (generically). Per Woody G, "Oklahoma, Kansas, Georgia, Tennessee". Mebbe not Kansas, but you get the drift.

    Countryisms

    When we would say "hey!", my mom would always say "Hay's cheaper than corn." Never really understood what it meant, other than hay is really cheaper than corn. Oh - and if we asked "Why" about something, she would say "Cat fur, want a pair of kitten britches?" Doesn't make a lot of sense either. It was when we asked "What for?" (said what fur?) that she would answer about the kitten britches, which makes more sense.

    Nope. Water jugs, called pitchers, have large ear shaped handles. Thus little pitchers have big ears. You have to be careful what you say around kids.

    If it were a snake, it woulda bit me. He's too old to cut the mustard. (from a song or a song was written about the countryism) Were you raised in a barn? (If you didn't close a door behind you.) A day late and a dollar short. Little pitchers have big ears.
  7. Been watching The Thick of It, a British comedy on Britbox, but noticed that it's on Amazon Prime, also. Produced and written (with others) by the guy HBO had develop and write VEEP. Great satire on government incompetence and self protection. I watch with subtitles to miss less. Watch it after the kids go to bed - the language is strongest I've heard on any TV show. Peter Capaldi (one of the many Dr. Whos) is great as Malcolm. What an asshole.
  8. Also on CNN OnDemand Channel 1202 on DirecTV

  10. Dolph Briscoe Center for American History. Donate to the Director's discretionary fund. He's a good guy, even if he went to UH.
