    Yesterday I had every intention of expanding on parts of the poem I posted, but…. Last night I was tired,had such a headache that I took an acetaminophen capsule, AND before I get a warning on the badness of what it can cause, I probably average twelve to fifteen of them a year and that is
    not going to hurt me.
    I will do some tonight, but don’t know how much I’;ll last.

    The four line lead in:
    “’still a long way from everywhere”
    Well, nobody can go everywhere, though I have been to more than most. And I have lived in the city(s) and out on the range (think mountains, prairies and deserts).
    But I’ve had to put the cover on my bucket list.

    First verse:
    I have lived in Northern California, and I have walked among
    the redwoods. And though I did see the Carribean, i’didn’t see very much of it.
    I have’ve rode a lot of freight trains. I came through Tucson in 1948, a sixteen year old kid that had no idea where he was going. It was my great good fortune that the freight train i caught out of Colton was a steam engine. It was the last steam engine I saw on any of the main lines. I got off the train in Deming, New Mexico. Was there less than two months, Couple of weeks afer I arrived I was night cook at a burger joint on the west side of town, Made the best hamburgers in town.
    Did a lot of thumbing, too. Often as not, I did not have a destination, but that never seemed to worry me. It was a wild aimless ride at times, but interesting and educationing.
    That’s it for now. I’m getting a bit groggy and hungry. think I’ll go get a Dos Equi out og the fridge.

    Hey-hey Vagabonds.
    Sunny with blue sky, just waiting for the second boot.
    “Knute Rockne All American” was the answer yesterdays question, our gal from Montana had it although she didn’t say it.
    It was a good movie, saw it on PBS years ago.
    It was billed as part of a Ronld Reagan movie night, of course Ronny played the Gipper and was only in a little bit of the movie.
    With RR on my mind he stared with Errol Flinn, Olivia de Havilland and Ramond Massey.
    Two newly graduated officers from West Point persue an aggressive abolitionist through the west and finaly to Harpers Fairy Va.

    Would that be Harper’s FERRY? I do remember your movie, it is one of several that I copied from VHS to DVD. Named for an “artsy” town in New Mexico (followed by another word for path), but I won’t spoil it for anyone else.

    Slim, the warnings and danger of acetaminophen are about exceeding the recommended daily dose. I don’t think you have a problem with only 12 to 15 per year….. And, by the way, I do love your stories!

    And a good morning to the rest of the Vagabonds.

    How many years ago did Julius Caesar die on the Ides of March? (I don’t know the answer to this one, so I can’t call it a trivia question.)

    It *is the “Ides of March!” Have a:


    1 1/2 ounces voldka
    2 dashes Tabasco Sauce
    3 dashes each salt and black pepper
    4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
    6 ounces Mott’s Clamato Juice

    Rim your glass with celery salt.
    Put in the ingredients in order
    Garnish with a celery stick


    Some people substitute gin or tequila.

    Apparently, this is more or less a “Canadian” drink.

    @JanCinLV: According to Wickipedia:

    44 BC – Julius Caesar, Dictator of the Roman Republic, is stabbed to death by Marcus Junius Brutus, Gaius Cassius Longinus, Decimus Junius Brutus and several other Roman senators on the Ides of March.

    Everything and everbody is all abuzz for the St. Patty’s day
    parade tomorrow in Savannah- but the celebrating starts today and goes on till Sun night. 400,000 tourist are expected
    for it this year from the US and other countries- Most of us locals avoid it .

    Thank you for the Caesar info.

    Sorry, but that drink of yours sounds absolutely awful. The only thing I would want that you listed (besides the Vodka) is the celery stick.

    @JanCinLV: Didn’t see your post about your grandaughter until now. Have put both of them on my prayer group’s prayer line.
