  1. Hi JJ! I’ll have to start making notes when I come across something you’ve written about which I felt commenting, but I’d wait to get to the end and by that time I may have to take off or I get interrupted and don’t get back to it again.

    LolyKat’s lookin’ luvly. 🙂 Take snaps of it from time to time so we can watch the progression, ha? I thought I’d add that “ha?” to give this a local flavor. 🙂 🙂 Do the Samarenos add that to some of their sentences, too? The visayans do. It takes the place of “ok?” as in, “Do this for us, ok?” As the Waray speakers say, “Agidaw, kaupay nim!” Which leads me to ask, aside from English (you and Lita) what is spoken around you, waray or Visaya/Cebuano? I’m sure your customers must speak waray; I meants in your compound.

    Glad to know you’re getting to be quite a chef! BTW, the mini pow wow snap is cute. I’m sure they solved quite a number of the globe’s nagging problems. Kids don’t fool around…[img]8-)[/img]

    1. Yes make notes. I like as many comments as possible. I don’t mind responding. Gives me something to do beside getting beat by Zuma Deluxe Level 9 (especially Level 9-3).
      I’ll be sure to take pictures now and then of LolyKat. I’m hoping it will blossom soon. Looking pretty decent so far. It has even increased the BBQ business a bit.
      Yes they use that “ha” at the end of a lot of sentences. I don’t know what language they use mostly around here, because I dont’ know what the heck they are saying. It’s probably Tagalog because Lita does not know Waray very well. Visayan would probably be the #2 around here because most everyone here was born and/or raised around the St. Bernard/Tambis area.
      I am getting pretty good at cooking that stew. I may be the only one eating it though. No one else wants to try it, just like I don’t want to try their food.
      The “mini pow wow” picture I did on a whim. I had the camera and they were at the table talking. I thought of the name for the photo as I was inserting it in the blog. I think the biggest problem they solved was who gets what toy or maybe who is the biggest pooh pooh head. I don’t know, they didn’t say.

      1. I LOVEEEE stew. Specially when it’s day-old stew; seems to taste so much better. Although when you’re eating it right after cooking’s done, you wouldn’t think it can get any better. 🙂 But I can’t take the hot spice in anything. Goes back to my childhood. Mother used to rub “Sili” on my mouth for real or imagined infractions. 🙁

        1. Well I’ll be making stew later today also. Stop by, I’ll let you have a bow. I love the hot spice.

          1. oh, and p.b. just made the yummiest stew for dinner tonight..and i thought about you cause you make it all the time..lmao

          2. And I’ll be making some more this afternoon. Just had 2 PB, J & B sandwiches.
            That’s peanut butter, jelly and banana.

  2. JOHN… THIS IS UR BLOG. YOU CAN DO IT ANY WAY U FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH. LONG OR SHORT, I AM SURE PEOPLE WILL STILL READ IF IT IS INTERESTING ENOUGH. YOUR BLOG IS YOUR WAY OF EXPRESSING YOUR LIFE WHILE YOU ARE LIVING THERE. THIS IS WHAT KEEPS YOU GOING EVERY DAY. WHO CARES IF IT IS WORTH ANY MONEY OR NOT? IT GIVES YOU SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO EVERY DAY. TO ME, (WHEN I DO READ IT) WHAT YOU DO EVERY DAY IS INTERESTING. I DON’T CARE IF YOU TELL ME WHAT TIME YOU GET UP OR WHAT YOU HAD FOR DINNER. IT’S FINE.
    AS LONG AS YOU ARE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU ARE DOING, THEN JUST KEEP GOING. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT COULD COME OF YOUR BLOG :). AND JUST SO YOU KNOW, I TRY TO READ AS MUCH AS I CAN OF YOUR BLOG. JUST THAT I WORK DIFFERENT HOURS AND JUST DONT GET AROUND TO READING EVERY ONE OF THEM. I DO READ THEM, BUT ONLY COMMENT ON THE ONES THAT INTEREST ME..

    1. Very nice comment Wanda. (except you didn’t have to yell). Yes in my blog I do express myself quite a bit and y’all know ‘almost’ everything that goes on around here. I kind of care if it makes money, because right now, since we had to buy a new vehicle, new appliances and build the store, we are living month to month.
      Of course after the truck is paid and the bill for the appliances is paid, we’ll really be doing pretty good. I’d like for us to get to that point faster and have enough money to come visit Texas more often.
      I’m glad you read as often as you can. Just think, before you wasn’t reading it at all, now you like it. Maybe I should give Precious another ice candy to thank her because I know the main reason you even looked at the blog to begin with was to see what she looked like, since Joyce thought she was so cute. You know that Jaclyn wants to introduce Wyatt to her. I wonder how that would work out? So IF they show up and IF they bring Wyatt, I’ll let y’all know.

    2. Wanda, this is Winda. 🙂

      I totally agree with your points. There must be something to the “birds of a feather..” saying. Even our names have only one different letter. LOL!

      1. hi winda.. this is wanda. i guess i sort of take after my big brother..lol. very special to me in more ways than one.
        just wish he didnt live so far away, but i guess that will make it more special when he does get to come home.
        so, what do you do and where do you live?
        how do you know john?

    3. i wasnt yelling.. i just use the “caps” because i am half blind and cant see the small letters very well..lmao
      and ok, if you are trying to make money from your blog, then good luck! hope it works out ok for you.

  3. I like the long format that is being used now….hope you dont switch to a bunch of shorter postings….no reason I guess… just like things the way they are here

    1. Well I was thinking about it after I went to bed and I have seen that most other blogs seem to be a series of short posts.
      I do like to be different, so the odds are I will stick with the longer main posts and put other shorter posts in. Basically
      what I am doing already.
      Thanks for your input.
