The boring and the exciting

Good Evening Everyone,

Well, just a note that I am still working on the cast iron tutorial.  I have had to do a few important things the last few days and I have gotten behind.  You know, life gets in the road, and general family issues, though not major, still, little things that have to be done, so I can concentrate and make a good presentation...Not sure of that but I will try.  I do not like to get rushed when I am doing things, and I want to present them right to all, not just something that is a slacker done project.

Well first,  do you remember my last post that we had a little excitement around here.....WELL, the drug dealer got busted Friday the 30th.   We didn't even know what went down until we got back running a few errands.  We left about 11:30 am to go and check my mailbox at the UPS store, (I do not receive my mail here at all, as you know why) and then we needed to go get a serpentine belt for my caddy and then we stopped by my folks to check on them and see if they needed anything as I did not want them out in the mess around town before the drunk golden hoard was let out of their cages, then home.  Got home at about 1 pm, let the dog out, put her back in, and then D and I went around back to pull out the caddy and the pickup and work on the car.  We stepped to the back, and seen a Dodge 4 wheel drive parked  and didn't make anything of it.  Went to work on the belt and about a half hour later, I looked up and seen two ICE feds go to the Dodge, taking off their flack jackets and holsters.  I almost pee'd my undies, couldn't believe it. After all these years, (about 6) he finally got busted.
The only issue was, we had feds all over the place until late in the afternoon, and then quiet, peace, no running in and out and vehicles at all hours running in the back. WOW I am not sure if this solves the problem or not.  The owner's mouthpiece was here later in the afternoon and he was very shook up about having "Feds"crawling  around,  Hummmmmmm.

So now, its very quiet here.  Not a soul stirring around at all.

So that is the news around here for now.  I just wanted to pop in and mention the news.  I didn't want to spoil New Years so I wanted to wait until a few days was past to mention this.

I will leave and promise to get the cast iron post going here.  Thank you again for your visits and I will get back later.

Love and Hugs to All


  1. Geez, you did have some excitement!
    The big thing in these parts is Meth, dang stuff can blow everybody up!
    Our area is pretty quiet, mostly older, been here forever folks but Meth dealers like "out in the country" trailers to cook their stuff. Druggies come out to get their Meth & also to scope out the area for future break-ins.

    I have several cast iron skillets, can't wait to read your suggestions.
    I have 2 pieces that stick really bad, they're for cornbread sticks.

    I hope 2012 is a great year for you.

  2. Never a dull moment eh? It always amazes me how open drug-dealers are about their business. Not here in wildest France, but in the UK they just deal, and smoke, out in the street, as if it's legal. Where are all the well-paid cops?

  3. I hope this takes care of lots of the troubles near your home!

    Surely this will scare off any repeat drug people.

    Looking forward to the cast iron info.
    My skillet needs some serious attention.

  4. Well, I don't know about anyone else, but I would not have minded being told about the bust on New Year's Day. It's always uplifting for me to see this sort of thing happen. Every little doggie gets to do his time. And maybe the trailer park owner might consider that the Feds wouldn't have had to come there had the owner not allowed that cancer to be there in his park in the first place! We had some guys setting fires that were caught when a helicopter on the way to somewhere else saw them from overhead, followed them till till they could be apprehended. That made my day, too. Keep on keepin' on.... Hugs, Ilene

  5. Hurray ~ That ought to make life nicer there for you!!!


  6. Oh yay! Maybe you will get some much deserved peace now. At least from one direction.

    Can't wait for the cast iron post. I LOVE my cast iron and am always interested to see how others use and care for theirs.


  7. I suspect I've been a bit naive about who 'deals' drugs as well as users--the surprise has been learning that 'nice' people on the 'nice' side of a seemingly quiet small town are involved. There was apparently a lot going on in our town in WY--and it wasn't just because of proximity to the reservation.
    I hope this 'bust' will mean quieter times in your neighborhood.

  8. well! a wonderful start to the new year for you Deminz, i hope this really improves your neighbourhood for you, and you can live a little more without fear. Great news, i am so pleased for you.
