Phos's Bad Knee Day

The knee is acting up again and no amount of painkiller seems to be working, even a couple of Motrin boilermakers didn’t seem to have much of an affect. Anyway, I am attempting to rest the joint as much as possible, between answering the phone and seeing what Yukon is barking about, that is.
Yukon and Austrella



I recently got Photoshop CS2 and have been puttering a bit - took some shots out in the yard and tried some different settings. The software is complex, so with me it is like a rhino trying to tie a shoe lace, if rhinos actually had shoes to tie.





Had a lovely lunch. As much as I love to cook sometimes I just need to go back to my roots. When I was young, right up until I was 11 years old hotdogs were a mainstay. They were safe food and never tasted like crap, unlike some of mom’s dishes. Her “Salmon Loaf” leaps immediately to mind. So I boiled up some franks. The package promised they were beef, but as we all know the sausage makers consider everything from asshole to moo beef, so you’re on your own. I had picked up this pack for my Chinese New Years party. I almost always have some hotdogs handy at these things because you never know when someone’s kid thinks anything out of a wok is gross. I did bow to the occasion and referred to them as “Dragon Tails” vice hotdogs. A little cheddar, some brown spicy mustard and I am good to go.

I like to pan roast hotdogs and cover them with cheese, relish and horseradish mustard.

Take care of that knee bud.

Yukon And Asutrella look gorgeous...so well-poised awww.

hammer:The trick is to get high quality dogs int first place, though it is ironic using high quality and hotdog in the same breath.

I am thinking about sawing everything from the knee down off once I clean the rust off my band saw. Wouldn't want an infection, you know.

Keshi: I've been known to dine on a bit of pie myself, but being that this a is a family blog we won't get into details on that, so to pseak. The reason Aussies don't eat hotdogs is because they are probably kanga-dogs. While a little roast of 'roo is probably ok once-in-awhile they are probably a might on the tough side for hotdog filler.

I love the pics! I wish I had photoshop. As for the sore knee, why not wash the painkillers back with a bottle of vodka. Should ease the pain.

tk:turning a hotdog into a party, what a great idea!

Cherry!: Good idea. The pain will still be there but I won't care anymore - works for me!!

I hope your knee gets better quick. Pain is no fun at all.

Rhinos actually don't have shoes (except those of the campers they killed and ate). But I suppose you can teach it to tie your shoes.

Hope your knee gets better.

KB: Thanks for stopping by! Glad you enjoyed it. You are right about the hotdogs, you buys yer ticket and takes yer chances…

LL: Thanks LL. On the bright side I get to use a cane, always wanted to look stylish…

Dan: Good point, but I do have shoes made of Rhino. Part of Martha Stewarts “Endangered Collection”. I also have a coat made out of the hide of her ex-stock broker.

Kirsten: Why yes I do. Thanks for the good wishes!!

DAK: I find boiling them takes away some of the gamey hoof-steak taste. Cool – what kind of camera did you get? I will be looking forward to lots of great photos!!

**kanga-dogs

LOL! ok I seriously cant believe Aussies eat roos...I dun like it cos a roo is a national symbol here and also cos its kinda a very innocent animal.

Keshi.

keshi: Cows are innocent too - what do you think is in that hotdog - how do you think it got there? Actually there is a big market for 'roo meat as well as Emu. I haven't had Emu, but I have had Ostrich - it has a beef like quality about it.

My best friends mom always boiled hotdaogs. It's so funny I haven't had one like that in so long!! But they have a paticular consistancy to them unattainable through grilling and frying. have to buy me a pack soon!

You should have made Year-of-the-Pigs in a Blanket.
