This weeks theme is videos that feature celebrities.
Upon getting home from work this morning, this is what I found.....
Around here we have put the war on for whatever has put the war on our hens.
Of course, opossums are not uncommon but before we bring more chicks home, I'd like to give them a better chance of surviving.
The ole man has worked on the foxes but for as many as we were seeing I was sure there was more to get rid of but because they are so smart and quickly adaptable I thought I'd try setting a trap out by the chicken coop and see if I could get lucky.
Oh lucky, not fox but this nasty mama opossum. I had really forgotten that they keep their babies in a pouch. I wish I had captured a picture when all those little legs and curly tail where sticking out but she has tucked those babies away.
So help me, I'd better not get anybody teary comments for this nasty creature.
She has gone from being calm and still to getting viscous and fangy
Now I've got to figure out what to do with it.
I'm thinking I'm going to wait until the ole man gets home.
Let's get to the music please.....
I guess we're goin' Redneck Crazy with Tyler Farr and our redneck celebrities from
These young 'ens around here can't get enough of those nuts down there in West Monroe

The next song on this is 1994 by Jason Aldean.
There's a lot of country celebrities but it also features Hayden Panettiere.
Lucas Till is our next celebrity being featured in Taylor Swift's You Belong to Me.
How about a throwback from Dolly Parton. Everybody's a star in this one.
Let's end this musical fun with these sorry son's a...
I was strolling through the grocery store a few weeks ago and decided to pick up some frozen waffles for the kids. I thought it would give them something different and something easy on all of us on those morning I'm coming off work.
The kids have ate them without complaint but after getting some out of the freezer for Jack, I thought to myself ," how gross?" They are basically like eating a piece of cardboard. I'm assuming that cardboard can easily be eaten if it's covered in butter and syrup. I thought I had eaten them before, too. I didn't remember them quite the same but regardless of all that I purchased them again.
I felt very guilty.
I knew I should do better than this.
If Kellogg's can freeze their waffles, why can't I?
Well, I can and I did.
I pulled out my waffle maker.
Gathered my ingredients
If you have a tried and true waffle recipe by all means use it.
I on the other hand am not a typical cook.
I'm an eye-baller and an improviser.
I put a good bit of self-rising flour in a mixing bowl, maybe 2 cup maybe a little more.
Add about a teaspoon of salt and some sugar.
You could leave those out if you don't want them or have it on hand.
I measure the salt in the palm of my hand and throw it in.
The sugar I just sprinkle along the top of my flour; it's really more to help it brown nicely.
Take a whisk and stir it up.
I then add the egg, oil(about a 1/4 cup), teaspoon of vanilla( usually your cap is a teaspoon)
and add your milk or some real big tablespoons of sour cream.
I used the sour cream because I forgot we were out of milk....
It will be really thick. I then move to the sink and
Add water and whisk until I get it looking about right.
*about right is when it is thin enough to pour but not too thin*
When you freeze them it will be best to put wax paper between them.
I use an old bread bag to store them in the freezer.
