I'm really being serious here. Yesterday I went to husk my nuts and some of them were too ripe, black, soft and squishy. Believe me! There is nothing worse than squishy nuts! That means the protective shell around the nut has started to break down and the chewy flesh has gone soupy. I learned the soft way. Shit. That husker of mine pretty much shreds them into black, gooey pieces. A word of wisdom here: start your husking when they are still fairly green. If you cup a couple in your hand and they firm and resilient then you are good to go. After throwing out all of the bad walnuts, I ended up with... 6.
Also, there must have been a teeny weeny hole in the thumb of my left glove. That's right, I'm stained walnut. It will eventually disappear.
I went to see my Mom yesterday. She was sitting outside wearing a blue sweatshirt and gray corduroy pants, and the temp was 91 (F) . She got a bit testy when I told her she was going to get heatstroke. She said she doesn't have any summer clothes because my sister wears them. That's not true. My sister wouldn't be caught dead wearing my mom's shorts.
Oh, and after a lot of complaining from both sides, the Idiot Jerk in the White House lowered the flags to half mast. This ass is such a petty sack of shit. He talks a lot about loyalty but only in regards to himself. What else can you expect? I'm sure he's a true believer when it comes to 'honor among thieves.'
I spent some time last night, and a bit more this morning updating my Dell laptop - the one with my cycling & workout info. Rouvy has updated and I will no longer need to use a blue-giga dongle. No, my dongle is not blue, in case you're wondering. However I will no longer need it to connect to my trainer. That will be so nice.
