Big Shout Out Time!

Tomorrow is Big Nasty's birthday! So in honor of him and everything he stands for, and my love for pickles, I want everyone to know about MANDINGO PICKLES!!!

I met Big Nasty through my ex-boyfriend early this year in Key West and found him quite entertaining. He and his buddies have started their own pickle company and I encourage everyone to head over and buy a few jars to give as Christmas presents this year! Support your local homegrown businesses and all around good guys!

Here is an entertaining article to give you a little background on the company as well. Enjoy!

Also, a little video for your viewing pleasure!


A song for Wednesday!

I love it! Seeing as how I really, really, really want one of those vintage Shasta or Scotty trailers, and I want to be a member of Sisters on the Fly one day, when I ran across this song I just couldn't resist! I have been doing some research and the SOTF will be in Canton this weekend at the first weekend trades day thing they do out there in Texas. Check out their site, it's really cool. I miss my country music can you tell??? Well, this is Miranda Lambert and I'm not big on Nashville country, I'm more of a Texas Country kinda girl, always have been. But, this song is cute. Enjoy!

Sometimes I wish I lived in
airstream homemade curtains
Lived just like a gypsy
Break a heart and roll out of town
Cause gypsies never get tied down

Sometimes I wish I lived on a mountain
Drank from a stream
Instead of a fountain
I'd stay there, on top of the world
But I was born a red dirt girl

Unbridled, or tethered in the ride
[ Find more Lyrics on ]
Safety of the fence
Or the danger of the ride
I'll always be unsatisfied

Sometimes I wish I lived by a pier
In a lighthouse with a chandelier
I'd watch everybody's ships come in
And then I'd sail away with them

Unanchored in a storm
Or safely on the shore
If this is all I need
Why do I want more

Sometimes I wish I lived in
airstream homemade curtains
Lived just like a gypsy

Now, back to searching for cheap trailers for sale! Yes... I know... it's 4am. I can't sleep. I drank a giant iced coffee at about 11pm. Bad idea. I never drink caffeine anymore and whew...I am feeling it! Simultaneously watching Dazed and Confused which just makes me miss home even more because it's about Texas.

In other news, I'm feeling better even though things here on island aren't going any better. Playing my guitar is like a miracle cure.
