Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Two Frags Diverged in a Yellow Wood aka Who Am I Kidding? Frags

OH, WHO AM I KIDDING???  I've never just had two frags in my life.

I've had NO frags - - - but never just two.

Frags are those bits and pieces you want to share on your blog and our friend Mrs. 4444 gives us the outlet to do so on Fridays.  Welcome to the party!
* * * * * * * * * * * * 
A few weeks ago our oldest son, Kelly, came with a friend of his from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Milwaukee to take in a Brewers / Reds game.

As you can see, Kelly is an avid sports fan.

He did, however, manage to snap this gorgeous pic of the Brewer's stadium for his mama.
OH, WHO AM I KIDDING???  He probably never thought of his mama once, but she DID enjoy the photo anyway..
* * * * * * * * * * * * 

It has been noted here before that my great niece, Carson, is a chip off her old great auntie's block.

Notice the disheveled hair and tongue hanging to the tip of her chin???  Um, yah - - - pretty sure that was my look all during my growing up years.
OH, WHO AM I KIDDING???  It's still pretty much my look!!!

Lately this similarity has shown itself in her going to AND ENJOYING football games.

RAH RAH Carson, keep it up!!!
* * * * * * * * * * * *  
Did you see this?

Earlier in September, during the Texas Tech / TCU football game a fox ran onto the field.

Yep, a real live fox.

I snapped a pic of my TV screen so I could show you.

He said to himself, "OH, WHO AM I KIDDING????  I JUST WANT OUT OF HERE!!!

Escape proved to be more difficult than entry.

They never said how they got him off the field, but I think it's safe to assume no foxes were harmed in the making of this frag.

* * * * * * * * * * * * 
Papoo and Pipes like to keep a close eye on each other via skype.

Speaking of Pipes - - - looks like Kamma Kamp will be in full swing again next summer toward the end of June and the beginning of July.

It will be a fun week of enjoying the grans.

OH, WHO AM I KIDDING?  It will give me tons o blog fodder.  ;-)
* * * * * * * * * * * * 
On Tuesday suddenly and with no warning our TV decided to fade right out of existence.

Not sure why they make TVs these days with a life span of only about 5 years.

Oh, WHO AM I KIDDING??  Of COURSE I know why!   They do it to make more $$$$$  when we buy a new one.

Fortunately for us, we had already planned a day trip to Eau Claire where there is a Best Buy and were able to get this new TV.

Ain't she a beauty?  46", ultra slim, HD, 3D, and internet.

I may be blogging from her soon.

But not today.
* * * * * * * * * * * * 
While in Eau Claire yesterday we stopped for a mid afternoon repast at one of our favorite watering holes, seeing as we don't have one anywhere around here.
I was a very good girl and ate ONLY salad and Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
OH, WHO AM I KIDDING????   I had the roasted garlic crab bake too.


It was delicious.

I like to eat meat, and do NOT feel one bit sorry for the crabs, shrimp, and scallops who gave their all so I could feast.

Have you seen what THEY eat???

I rest my case.

It's all about eat or be eaten.

I eat.

And THIS is the evidence left at the scene of the crabicide.
* * * * * * * * * * * * 
In my last post I showed my fall decor.

I neglected to show THIS, most important bit - - - the red football ornaments in the wire chicken egg basket with the "On Wisconsin" beads around it's neck.

OH, WHO AM I KIDDING????  This bit of decor will stay with me all through fall, Christmas, and right on into February and the Super Bowl.

.* * * * * * * * * * * *
It would appear that our new TV is a smart one.

OH WHO AM I KIDDING???  It's WAY smarter than moi, as evidenced by the fact that last night while I was TRYING to watch a You Tube video on my equally smart phone, it (the You Tube video) was suddenly transported and displayed on the TV screen.

No, I had NO idea how I did it.

I think I've figured it out now, but for a while there I thought the new TV came complete with programming fairies intent on working their mischief upon me.
* * * * * * * * * * * *    
Mommy's Idea

And that's it for this week's edition of frags.

Please head over to Mrs. 4444's place
To check out more frags.

While you're there, why not join in the fun???

You are the brightest spot of Friday Fragments for me! I want to jump in my car a drive over to have coffee with you! Sure wish we lived closer, because I'd probably hound you! Thanks for sharing your wonderful and sparkling personality! Love the baseball pic! He wouldn't have a chance to snooze at a Cardinal's game...

Tracy said...

You can actually by the cheddar bay biscuit mix at Target now. Red Lobster decided to market it I guess after all the posts online of how to make it.

Traci Marie Wolf said...

So much self-realization in this post. I like it. Who am I kidding, I love it.

I'm not a sports fan and I think baseball is really hard to sit and watch, anytime I have to, I have to walk around the stadium and eat becaue I'm bored out of my mind.

Doreen McGettigan said...

I've missed you! I am glad your life was just boring and not something serious.
Boring can be quite nice.
Carson is adorable.
All I saw when I looked at your lunch was death and trust me I could care less about the critters death either. It is because I am so allergic to shellfish. It is so yummy but I think I've used up my chances so I do not tempt death anymore.
I love your new TV. Of course I would be scared to death if the u-tube thingy happened to me.

LV said...

What an interesting and exciting week you have had. Never a dull moment in your world.

Bill Lisleman said...

Interesting TV setup you have. I sure hope the TV is not watching you.
I've watched some youtube on our TV but I need to connect through our DVD player that came with an internet connection. The too frequent problem is the annoying request for downloads of updated apps.

mzzbev said...

I so wish I could write like you! You're so funny :) You got me hungry for RL too :\

Claudya Martinez said...

I eat meat too. Oh who am I kidding? I'll eat just about anything when I'm hungry.

Stacy said...

Red Lobster sounds like a great idea! Oh, who am I kidding...we just ate there this past Sunday. I didn't have the crab bake...more of a shrimp girl, myself, so scampi and coconut shrimp for me.

We got ourselves a new TV for Christmas last year. I know I'm supposed to be able to do the internet from it, but for what it cost I'm afraid to do any of that stuff for fear of messing it up...and the hubby would cry if his 60-inch baby bit the dust.

Beth said...

I hate that the TVs are now smarter than we are! And it is a huge pet peeve of mine that everything is built to be disposable these days but does not come with a disposable price tag.

Charlotte said...

Love your frags!

Trish said...

Thank you for making me smile this fine Saturday morning! Love your sense of humor!

Mary said...

Those smart tvs are pretty nice! I guess as long as you can figure them out!

nancygrayce said...

Maybe Kelly is more related to me! He looks about as enthused as I do when watching sports!

Love that Skype pic....and your great niece is too cute.

The smart tv's are too smart for me!

Sandy said...

Love, LOVE, love this post of yours...You showed me parts of WI. and oh my, the colors are muted from what I remember...but who cares, I got to see my old part of the world..Food!!!! Oh yes....mouth was watering through the food portion, Brewer's park--YES it is beautiful....
Go UW...would love to see them play in the Rose Bowl again....
I only have my laptop for tv, internet etc....Would love a larger screen for football and basketball games though....
Love from NC

Keri said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! I laughed OUT LOUD at your YouTube video showing up on the TV and you having no idea how you did it!

I love you, Mama!

Ann in the UP said...

I find it very unnerving having appliances which I thought would be my servants turn out to be smarter than I am.

I seem to be losing ground in the tech/person intelligence thingy. Shudder.

Kay said...

Ah, have I missed reading your frags. You make me smile. We had to keep telling our new TV to stop syncing with everything in the room. It was a bit disconcerting at first ;-)
