We will stop for gas, piss-stops, food, and sight-seeing...
But other than that......

Love you all..If you played 55 this week,
Please go tell the Beautiful and Hard Working SUSIE!!!

Hiya Kids.........

Well folks, it's happened again...
Today, 'ole' G-Man was slapped with the harsh reality of how old he really is!!
Today I made a comment on a fellow blogger's post, about a well known TV character named Froggy Gremlin. As I didn't realize, I was probably the only one in the world still alive that actually remembers the little fellow, AND what show he came from...
The Buster Brown Show....!!!!
It was hosted by a jovial actor named Andy Devine, And I even remember the theme song..
'Here's Buster Brown,
He lives in a shoe,
Here's his dog Tige.
He lives in there too'....
The cast of characters included, Midnight the Cat, Squeeky the Mouse, and the fan favorite, Froggy Gremlin!!!! Andy would say..."Plunk your magic twanger Froggy"...Then Froggy would come out to a riotous applause and say.."Hiya Kids, Hiya, Hiya, Hiya"....
Remember the kid in the later Little Rascal episodes...Froggy..?
Well, he sounded just like Froggy Gremlin...
I swear that was one of THE most often repeated phrases of the 50's...
1..I Like Ike!!!
2..Are you now, or ever have been, a member of the Communist Party..?
3..Kookie, Kookie, Lend me your comb..
4..Plunk your magic twanger Froggy..!!!
Now please refrain from any lewd comments, this is a family blog...hehehehe

Galen's Used Car Lot.......

Hi everybody..Today was a great day in the Haynes Household.. Not only is Mrs. H still in South America (YAY!!!), but There was some car jockeying going on..
The Facts...
My son Reese has been driving my 1990 3/4 ton Ext Cab longbox Chevy P/U
It's been killin me in gas...10-12 MPG, and he only drives to school and to band.
I drive a "Beater with a Heater" a 1995 Buick Century, that I bought 2 1/2 years ago from off of our lot for 900 Bucks...Great mileage, and the air blows COLD!!!
Of course our main family car is a 2007 Chevy Impala that I lease, and my wife drives!!
But the truck was costing a small fortune to drive, so today I bought a 2000 Chevy Malibu that I happened to take in on trade for 1000.00 It was a very clean car, and the girl that owned it drove 60 miles a day round trip for her job, so I knew most of the miles were put on during the commute. it had 122,270 miles on it, thats why it was so cheap.
The company let me buy it for 1490.00 plus tax...YAY!!!..That included a full inpection(which it passed with flying colors) an oil change, tire rotation, and a full tank of gas..
Sooooo, I decommissioned the Truck, Reese got my Buick, I got the new 'used' car....
We are still bachelors...Life is good!!!!

Monday Swinefest.......

Hi Everybody, I hope everyone had a fantastic week-end.
We missed the snow and ice, but it's been raining for 2 days..
My basement sump has been running continuously!!!!
It's very sloppy outside, and the slushy ice is getting on my LAST nerve!
I can't wait for Feb. 29th...Peace..!

In the first pic, you can see on my wall in my office, several of these Promo Pins they have given us. The other pins, are pins I WISH I could wear sometimes....

Kiss Kiss........

"You must remember this,

A kiss is just a kiss,

A sigh is just a sigh...

The fundamental things apply,

As time goes by"..........

Not a schoolyard dare...

Your very first romantic kiss??


Care to share?

She had to walk into mine...........


Don't forget your Sweet-Heart this Thursday!!

There Goes The Neighborhood...

You don't have to be from the South..
You don't even have to be from the 'Holler'..
You don't have to be toothless..
You don't have to named Ellie May , Junior, or BJ.
You don't have to own an Out-House..
All you need is to have your dryer go on the Fritz, and to have your car door freeze shut a few times...
THEN...You too, can become a Hill-Billy!!!
Plus it doesn't hurt if your name is Galen Lee...
Peace...!!..(Damn it's Ccccold)

That'll frost your bobbin...

Boo Hoo 55..........

I don't feel much like doing a 55 tonight.
Saturday I wrenched my knee doing nothing.
I then cooked and prepared food for 3 days.
Then yesterday we got over 12 inches of snow.
Reese and I shoveled our driveway by hand.
I fell in the snow....
I'm still cold, wet, and very tired!!

Our good friend Susie is quite busy sewing and trying to make a living, if you or someone you know has written a 55, please come and tell the G-Man. I would be honored to come and read your little story...have a great week-end.

I love This Day.........

The Jambalaya was very tasty...I honed it down a bit for the wussies, I figured that they can add their own heat. You may be able to see some of my hot sauce stash that I broke out for the occassion.
The corn bread is something that I've NOT talked about yet.
Follow the directions for making a 9 by 13 pan, but in lieu of 1/2 the liquid, dump a can of Creamed Corn in the batch, add a pound of scrambled Hot sausage, and dump a cup of shredded Cheddar in the mix. Bake as directed, and dump a cup of shredded Cheddar on top for the last 5 minutes...OH BABY!!!!!
Voila...Muffulette's...Jambalaya...Spicy Sausage Corn Bread...Rolaids!!!
Do I treat My Peeps good or what????
