My Town

Look at the flowers I grow ~ white clematis, red tulips, yellow chrysanthemum.  My garden is so beautiful and I don't have to water or fertilize.
Oh I made another terminological inexactitued, I'm bad.  Now for really bad ! Everytime I say clematis we laugh because Lee has a friend who seriously called the flower white or purple chlamydia.  By the way her chlamydia plants were beautiful this year.  Now I have digressed from subject Bawhehehe!
This mural appeared painted on the concrete wall along Route 50 this Spring.  I, Sweet William The Scot, wanted you to see the part of my town which the mural reflects.  Columbia-Tusculum is the oldest neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio and is located on the East Side of the city.  About three miles from my home.  It is a historic district that was once a neighborhood where steamboats were built.  The neighborhood is noted for the Victorian era homes decorated in the painted ladies multi-color style.  See the mural has several of the painted ladies and lovely flowers and birds.

The real houses.
Higher Level Art added a splash of color to the drab concrete wall near the gardens.  Students from the Art Academy of Cincinnati helped in the project.

Mayor Frankie Day

I am disclaiming,  repudiating, disavowaling (DICTIONARY) anything my Lee types if it stinks, because she had an emergency appendectomy and I, Sweet William The Scot, can verify Lee is wigged out on pain meds.

My rendition of the
Country Song Red Solo Cup just for our own Mayor Frankie ~ HIT IT ~ SING!!!!!

Red Solo Cup you fill me up Oh Frankie
Let's have a party, let's have a party

I love you Frankie You lift me up
Now I have seen  your kind of dog in short and I have seen wire hair
But only your long hair will do for this fellow

Cuz you are the Abbott and my Costelo
And you have the best  Fruit of the Looms

Red Solo Cup you fill me up Oh Frankie 
Let's have a party, let's have a party

Your the tube to the steak
You are the scoop to my Poop
In eighty seven years they are decomposable
Let's have a party, let's have a party

Cause when the poop goes on my paw
cuz  my poop sacks breaks
well that my friend that is quite yucky
Let's have a party, let's have a party

Oh Frankie you're more than just a DOG
More than amazing you're more than fantastic
And believe me that I'm not being the least bit sarcastic
Let's have a party, let's have a party

You're my friend yea (Lifelong)
Thank you for being my friend
Oh Frankie

Traffic Report

Down the road I go, an what to my wondering eyes should appear, oops wrong story, but I came upon this aberration (DICTIONARY).
Yes this Scooter Store Scooter on Highway 125, speed limit is 45 to 55 miles per hour four to six lanes of traffic. I would say it gets real good gas milage. Go Granny Go Granny The Little Old Lady From Pasadena Go Granny Go.
Do you need a license to ride this on the highway? WOWZA
Traveling down the road further I came upon a gargantuan, humongous, jumbo truck.
The picture is for Jazzi's Dad, I understand he likes trucks and I got to be super duper nice to him because he is my girls Dad. It took this truck 20 minutes to maneuver the corner. Largest truck on the road.  52 tires, count them.  On the truck was a gargantuan wooden box that held a lathe that came from Italy by boat to New Orleans then to Cincinnati.  The base of the lathe will sit down three stories in concrete.
I have been traveling down this road too long ~ Detour, there's a muddy road ahead detour.  Don't let the mud of the week get you!
Thanks for being a friend

The Johnny Jump Up Viola comes back every year.  It grows out of the trunk of my maple tree.  We wonder how it survives.

Run For The Roses

Well I, Sweet William The Scot, am ready for the Kentucky Derby. Got my fanciful straw bowler hat, got my own roses and now I am going to mix up my Mint Julep, The Very Dream of Drinks, so I can imbibe the spirits. WooHoo!!!!!!
The mint julep has been promoted by Churchill Downs in association with the Kentucky Derby since 1938. Each year almost 120,000 juleps are served at Churchill Downs over the two day period of the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby, virtually all of them in specially made Kentucky Derby collectible glasses.
Since 2006, Churchill Downs has also served extra-premium custom-made mint juleps at a cost of $1000 each at the Kentucky Derby. These mint juleps are served in gold-plated cups with silver straws, and were made from Woodford Reserve bourbon, mint imported from Ireland, spring water ice cubes from the Bavarian Alps, and sugar from Australia. The proceeds are used to support charitable causes dedicated to retired race horses. In May 2008, Churchill Downs unveiled the world's largest mint julep glass. It has a capacity of 206 US gallons.

  • 3 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoon superfine sugar
  • 2 ounces bourbon

    Muddle 2 mint sprigs, the water, and the sugar in a silver julep cup.
    Fill the glass with crushed ice, and pour in the bourbon.
    Garnish with the remaining mint sprig.
    Who is your favorite to win the Kentucky Derby? 

    A toast to the winner.
