First a Recipe........

....yes, Srsly. Wollf can cook, and this one is easy. M'Lady Dragn suggested a bit of a change to a Holiday Staple, and it is down right yummy!

Cranberry Sauce from scratch, and forgive me, but I'm not a Food Writer....

Getcherself a bag of fresh cranberries.

Look at the bag, it has directions on it. Follow the directions. *Saves me a bunch of typing*...

....Replace the WATER with ORANGE JUICE. Replace the WHITE SUGAR with LIGHT BROWN SUGAR....... Add some cimmanon and nutmeg, just a scosh....Then, when you take it off the heat after the boiling and returning to boil and simmering....

Add a half a pint of fresh Blueberries.

This becomes a major NOM NOM me, I'm Wollf. Here's a cam-phone picture....

M'Lady and I and the Cubs wish you all a Delightful Thanksgiving weekend.

Oh......She is already decorating the Tree.......Damm,there's times when I adore a touch of OCD....

And......I seem to be wearing an Elf hat.
Don't ask.

Happy Thanksgiving

I don't think you want to try this at fact I'm not entirely sure it's even safe to watch...

The question is raised...."Can you cook a turkey with thermite?

Well....I s'pose you can.

I havta remember this next one for when the kids are all grown up and into their own lives..........

Eddie in Dallas calls his son in New York just before Thanksgiving and tells him, "I am sorry to tell you but your mother and I are going to divorcing.

I just cannot take any more of her moaning. We can't stand the sight of each other any more.

I am telling first, Eddie, because you are the eldest, please tell your sister."

When Eddie calls his sister Julie, she says: "No way are they getting divorced, I will go over and see them for Thanksgiving."

Julie phones her parents and tells them both "You must NOT get divorced.

Promise you won't do anything until I get over there.

I'm calling Eddie, and we'll both be there with you tomorrow.

Until then, don't take any action, please listen to me." and hangs up.

The father puts down the phone and turns to his wife and says. "Good news!" he says, "Eddie and Julie are coming for Thanksgiving and they are both paying their own way!"

Hope you all have a great day. We're doing T-2 with the Cubs on Friday....with their mom on T-1.....bummer

Dumbest Kid Ever.....

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, “This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you.”

The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, “Which do you want, son?”

The boy takes the quarters and leaves.

“What did I tell you?” said the barber. “That kid never learns!”

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store.

“Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?”

The boy licked his cone and replied, “Because the day I take the dollar, the game is over! “

Yup......dumbest kid I ever heard of too.....

......doesn't happen nearly as much as it did in the 'beginning' of this if knowing a bit more of ol'Wollf bothers you......


To whit: It's been rather rough on me physically since Memorial Day when I rather without thought removed my left pinkie finger.....then had it hard on the physical therapy.....then six weeks ago, forgot how old I was and removed the end of my left thumb, fracturing it in two places in the process....

I now have about seventy-plenty mobility in the hand as a whole. My career as a hand model is rather verklempt...... Darn, I was planning that for my retirement.

So....where is Wollf right this moment?

Sitting in my Family room, next to the fire, Lil'Wolfie just started Black Ops....for him a Game, for me, well let's just call it a 'movie'.

I'm a 'bit' concerned about how I'll deal with the supposedly realistic graphics.

I may have to call "PAUSE"....and take a bit of a break.....The dogs are curled around me, the fire is roaring, my Darling is out to a Parents' meeting, and I need to pick up Wolf the Elder....hell, he's eighteen years old now...his real world name is Max.....from work at 2000 hours.

Then he's doing an overnight and heading to Sacramento for a Drumline competition.

*They will win*

So......all in all, been married to my Lovely wife for about a year and a half now, and I Love her more than I did at the beginning.

Pray for me, or just wish me luck that I don't screw up the most wonderful thing that's ever happened to me.......

Going to see my #2 Daughter and the Grand Babies on Saturday.....Yay.

Oops..... Black Ops is looking kind of familiar.....gotta go and give advice to the future Marine.....doesn't have a clue about sniping.

An Invitation to Thanksgiving Dinner.......

......that I received from a friend....

For those of you who are coming to our place for Thanksgiving dinner- Martha Stewart ain’t gonna be here! I’m telling you in advance, so don’t act surprised. Since Ms. Stewart won’t be coming, I’ve made a few small changes:

Our sidewalk will not be lined with homemade, paper bag luminaries. After a trial run, it was decided that no matter how cleverly done, rows of flaming lunch sacks do not have the desired welcoming effect.

Once inside, our guests will note that the entry hall is not decorated with the swags of Indian corn and fall foliage I had planned to make. Instead, I’ve gotten the kids involved in the decorating by having them track in colorful autumn leaves from the front yard. The mud was their idea.

The dining table will not be covered with expensive linens, fancy china, or crystal goblets. If possible, we will use dishes that match and everyone will get a fork. Since this IS Thanksgiving, we will refrain from using the plastic Peter Rabbit plate and the Santa napkins from last Christmas.

Our centerpiece will not be the tower of fresh fruit and flowers that I promised. Instead we will be displaying a hedgehog-like decoration hand-crafted from the finest construction paper. The artist assures me it is a turkey.

We will be dining fashionably late. The children will entertain you while you wait. I’m sure they will be happy to share every choice comment I have made regarding Thanksgiving, pilgrims and the turkey hot line. Please remember that most of these comments were made at 5:00 a. m. upon discovering that the turkey was still hard enough to cut diamonds.

As accompaniment to the children’s recital, I will play a recording of tribal drumming. If the children should mention that I don’t own a recording of tribal drumming, or that tribal drumming sounds suspiciously like a frozen Turkey in a clothes dryer, ignore them.

They are lying.

We toyed with the idea of ringing a dainty silver bell to announce the start of our feast. In the end, we chose to keep our traditional method. We’ve also decided against a formal seating arrangement..

When the smoke alarm sounds, please gather around the table and sit where you like.
In the spirit of harmony, we will ask the children to sit at a separate table. In a separate room.

Next door.

Now, I know you have all seen pictures of one person carving a turkey in front of a crowd of appreciative onlookers. This will not be happening at our dinner. For safety reasons, the turkey will be carved in a private ceremony. I stress “private” meaning:

Do not, under any circumstances enter the kitchen to laugh at me. Do not send small, unsuspecting children to check on my progress. I have an electric knife. The turkey is unarmed.

It stands to reason that I will eventually win. When I do, we will eat.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind my young diners that “passing the rolls” is not a football play.

Nor is it a request to bean your sister in the head with warm tasty bread.

Oh, and one reminder for the adults: For the duration of the meal, and especially while in the presence of young diners, we will refer to the giblet gravy by its lesser-known name: Cheese Sauce.

If a young diner questions you regarding the origins or type of Cheese Sauce, plead ignorance. Cheese Sauce stains.

Before I forget, there is one last change Instead of offering a choice between 12 different scrumptious desserts, we will be serving the traditional pumpkin pie, garnished with whipped cream and small fingerprints.

You will still have a choice; take it or leave it.

Martha Stewart will not be dining with us this year. She probably won’t come next year either.

I am thankful.

Friends are one of things I'm most thankful for....

U.S. Marine Corps Hymn (Marine Hymn........)

.............Has inspired me since my Dad first sang it to me.............

Watch, below, the official USMC Commandant's of the most inspiring, from any Commandant, on tomorrow's 235th Birthday of the Corps.

My Grandfather Clarence was at Belleau Wood, My Grandfather Stevenson was a Pilot over France, my Dad was a Much decorated E-5 on Peleliu, my Brother Mike was killed 45 years after Vietnam by that Agent Orange crap.

The Family have been Marines. My youngest aspires to the tradition.

Watch this....Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps!

Do you know the words?

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev'ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job--
The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

G-d Bless the Corps and all who have served.

Now, as Lil'Wolfie would say....."Click the Button and give some Money, you Jack Wagons!!!!"

Don't make me send #77 out to put the HURT on you......heh
Semper Fi.....Do or Die

PS..... let's add some Music to this.....I never liked this 'type' of music until The Warrior Song......and then I found The Marine Corps version.....

Get ready to get PUMPED UP!!!

I get more e-mails than I know what to do with......

.....and sometimes they fit right into the current Blog meme.....get a load of this, and yes, because it's Internal USMC, I've redacted the names......

Cpl. REDACTED...I have attached some photos of our Wounded Warriors West, Operation Mountain Freedom for 2010. We take our Marines to Mammoth Lakes for a winter program and summer program, the program restores confidence and teaches skills, regardless of the condition. Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra provides a wonderful experience for all the Marines who attend. They give each wounded warrior a scholarship to ski for life for free.

If you have a chance, would you pass this along to the Commandant. Thanks, REDACTED

Some pics from Steve Colwell,who was wounded in Nam as a 2nd LT. He works with these kids all the time.

Now.....enjoy the uplifting pics of Marines who never give up.....and click that little GIVE button on the sidebar. Now, Jackwagons!

My State of Kalifornia just re-elected the same bunch of Liberal Nanny-State Morons as in the past and I'm angry.

Make me feel better and click the Button. I'm becoming unpleasant. The old MOS is rearing it's ugly head......

Weren't those fantastic?

An aside, seems that my Boss is flying a group of them up to Mammoth in the next few weeks.

Semper Fi, Boss!
