Me Mind is Blank right now..... but wait....


Osh gave us a pretty cool web site....OceanGram ... You can send a message in a bottle over the internet or a real one..... Pretty darn cool!!! Thanks Osh!!!

Blazn went to see the PE filming in Milwaukee.... check out her blog!!!

Thats really all my tired mind can think of for now....I will update the info on Sir Jack after I sort thru the comments.... will add more later....

Morning update:
Here is what we learned about Sir Jack last night as well as some other information:

Q: Do you live near the Mississippi River?
A: No

Q: Are you within 5 miles of 3 different waters which are navigatable?
A: Sure

Q: Does your ship ever get stuck in the mud... upper or lower mud?
A: mud=broken keel=not good No.

Jack stated that he has a flight to catch....
Q: Where you going Jack? Give city/town & state/country.
A: To the moon... Looney Town USA.... not quite a direct answer.
I think that is was a way to throw us off the scent as later Jack appeared to have missed his flight/ship.....

After reading thru all the posts.... I realized that Who's mentioned a "butter burger"... what? Can someone please tell me what that is?


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After seeing Rod's garden pics.... I was inspired to post a few of my own. All of my gardens have to be in "raised beds" because of the poor soil... it is all decomposed granite....

This is the Apple Tree Circle

The Fuji apple is surrounded by lantana, Sweet William, scented geranium, Iris, and mums


These are some of the potted plants in front of my porch

Amaryllis, Candy tuft, white petunias, and mexican primrose
(which has an incredible "glow" to it at sunset)



This raised bed is at the end of the porch

The large one is scented geranium (rose scent), hydrangea and my tomatoes in front



Heres my little elf that I painted. He hangs out under the rose tree.

My first bloom of the passion flower!


This is a close up of the passion flower..
there is a second bud getting ready to open


Ok.... off to do my daily stuff.......

Hoping you all enjoy your day....

Blaznfire911 said...

Good Morning MInxie!

I am headed off to the airport here shortly, then back to the PE filming!

I'll check in with you guys late tonigh, so don't have too much fun without me!

Hey...if your mind is blank....you can always put pics of my floating CJS!!! LOL

Vicky

Lotus said...

Jees, Blazn, you are so freakin' LUCKY!!! I wish (just for a couple of days) that I lived in Waukesha and was able to HOP over to see filming! Thanks for the info and pics---great!

Speaking of evil forces :) Jack never answered questions last night, I see.

~Minxie~ said...

Hi all!!!

Shakes~ we have missed you!!! I am happy that you can at least stop in from time to time....

Doc~ be safe out there.... keeping my fingers crossed that you get that GREAT JD pic!!!!

Lotus ~ Jack did answer some questions.... just not the way we wanted them answered... ;)

Lotus said...

Sir Jack is a sly Puss & Boots! I do believe he is Toonces The Driving (Pirate) Cat. [my work puter is a piece of crap! if I didn't know better I'd think we still had a dial-up connection!]

Lotus said...

BTW minxie, nice garden! You must work on those plants a lot. Gotta get back to work. See ya later.

~Minxie~ said...

Thanks Lotus!!!! I LOVE gardening.... it is my cathartic release!!! Watering is the main issue.... we dont get rain like you all do... in fact, we are already "brownsville" around here!!!

Love your little peacock pic!!!

Oh and here is a pic of JD that is floating around....
http://tinyurl.com/3fmvkp

Supposedly its Johnny.... I cant really tell if it is.... Cant explain the knee braces? Does anyone remember when/where he had the mustache? Beaver Dam perhaps? What scenes were filmed there? hmmmm..... very interesting...

-Sir Jack said...

Great garden Minxie, my love!
My I have one of those apples? I haven't had breakfast as of yet.

Shakes good to see you love. You can borrow my eve keel anytime love. Hope to see you later.

Lotus, my kaleidoscoping flower, you do intrigue me, you and your many personalities, er um, I mean petals.

I'm off to my beach to take a nap. (Lotus has never visited my island blog) *pouts*

See you later after a few winks, loves.

-Sir Jack said...

Minxie love, here's a rum bottle for watering your flowers!
*waves bottle*

Lotus said...

Eau contraire, Sir Jack, I visited your ship on 6/09 @ 10:35 am. Go look! You'll find me under Cheeky Monkey (tee hee.)

Lotus said...

VERY interesting pic of JD. I'd swear he's wearing long underware! And I know my long underware, 'cause I'm constantly washing me husband's in the winter.

~Minxie~ said...

I am still not convinced that pic is of JD..... and it looks like shorts to me... ah... but who the hell knows for sure..... *sighs* it must be terrible to be a star and live in a world where you have to worry about all the pics taken of you.... the pap always trying to get "the" shot that they can twist and turn.... i.e. the National Enquirer pics....

~Minxie~ said...

You know Lotus... you might be right... he might have been wearing long johns because of the damn cold weather..... LOL...

-Sir Jack said...

Ohhhh found it.
Lotus love, I guess I'm not you after all. Otherwise I would have remembered that post. *sigh of relief*

Minxie, I couldn't get your tiny url to work. Worked for you and Lotus?...Bugger my URLs must off course.

Osh said...

Minxie,
shot in the dark...but I think that would be what JD wears under his costume to protect him while doing his stunts and such when he hits the ground...scenes are shot out of order...the moustache comes and goes.

~Minxie~ said...

Jack~ try this one
http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa204/eroz0/Public%20Enemies/johnny-1.jpg

~Minxie~ said...

oh buggar... lets try this

http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa204/eroz0/
Public%20Enemies/johnny-1.jpg

~Minxie~ said...

Osh... you might have a good point there .... I am still not convinced its him though.... maybe its the poor quality of the pic... but something is off... cant put my finger on it....but then again....

Osh said...

I believe it is him, still in makeup...
Dillinger had plastic surgery near the end of his life, 'member? He looked rather off himself.

~Minxie~ said...

Yeah, I guess you could be right on that.... I have seen many pics of JD that didnt really look like him, but it was. I wonder where the pic was taken... maybe in his trailer? Just is suspicious since it appears that a tabloid type website has it... and it would have to have been taken by someone behind the scenes... or at least that is my take on it. But then again.... I could be totally off base.

Osh said...

I could be wrong too Minxie...I seem to be off base myself here lately.

~Minxie~ said...

Well your theory makes more sense than mine does... so... how about we go with he has on a "stunt long john suit"! :D With fashionable knee pads of course!

~Minxie~ said...

Good evening all..... anyone around tonight?

calypso said...

Hi Minxie, how are you doing??

I was looking at the photo (tiny url) you posted...that looks like Depp to me. Did you notice the date? It might be some sort of early work in PE. What do you think?

~Minxie~ said...

Hi Calypso.... nice to have you here!!!

Well the date on the website says 6-10-08... not sure, but I think that was the date posted.... the only time I am aware that he had a mustache was when he was filming in BD, I think....but who really knows for sure....
It also looks like he is in the doorway of maybe his trailer?

calypso said...

Ohh, I thought maybe it was from March. Nice tights though ;)

I was going to go over to Milw today, but something came up. I hope that Vicky gets some good pix for everybody.

I really like your flower pictures! So are you a "master" gardener?

Lotus said...

Sir Jack, "I couldn't get your tiny url to work. Worked for you and Lotus?...Bugger my URLs must off course."

You couldn't get the URLS to work because your a Sir, not a Duke (of URLS)! HA! Get it?

~Minxie~ said...

Ha ha ha .... JD in tights!!! NICE!!!

Thanks... i love gardening... I am FAR from a "master" gardener. i am the type that doesnt make a plan... I see a plant, I like it, I plant it, if it lives GREAT, if it doesnt, bummer ~ NEXT!

I am a jack of all trades, master of known! ;)

~Minxie~ said...

Hello Lotus!!! LMAO!!! That is funny!!!

calypso said...

I'm the same way Minxie. Only the strong survive around here.

~Minxie~ said...

oopps.... my bad.... should have been "none" not "known"..... LMAO!!! My mind isnt working too well tonight... =0P

Yeah, well living in the dirt infested brownsville that I live it.... the only thing that lives on its own is the weeds! Why is that? Why is it that where nothing else in the world will grow, up pops a weed?

calypso said...

LOL Lotus, you've got a great sense of humor. Keep 'em coming.

I've gotta go, someone wants to play badminton while the light is good.

Lotus said...

minxie, I have time to discuss said JD picture. I think it looks like long underware, possobly ending below the knee. Then light-weight thermal (?) socks, possibly, with the knee pads and/or light weight braces. I can't figure out what the white stuff above the knee pads/braces is. Could have been anywhere with early filming, such as Little Bohemia. I know it was COLD there some nights they were filming, and there are no pictures of JD filming there so he could have had the hairy lip! But, WHO THE HELL KNOWS! Not me.

Lotus said...

Bye calypso! (waves~~~~~~~~)

~Minxie~ said...

*waves* Bye Calypso.... stop by any time!! Hope you win badminton ...

~Minxie~ said...

Lotus... could be.... it seems the he has on longjohns, with some sort of shorts and then the socks and knee braces... hence the white above them... the longjohn showing thru?

*laughs* yeah, really... who knows?

-Sir Jack said...

Lotus love, I think he has one of your outfits on!! It's almost as nice as your snakes!

~Minxie~ said...

Jack!!!!! Good evening love!!!

Lotus said...

I think that the blue part you see as shorts, I see as long underware. The husband's look just like that. But, who knows!?! Whoever it is, that WINE sure looks good!

-Sir Jack said...

Minx Minxie! *purrr*
Has Lotus bitten you yet?

Lotus said...

Hey, Sir Jack (not the Duke of URLS). Are you going to play fair tonight? Or is it another cat and mouse night?

-Sir Jack said...

Why Lotus my love, I always play fair...for a pirate!

~Minxie~ said...

Ah Jack.... Lotus isnt a biter... at not to me! =0P
Maybe if you played fair, she wouldnt bite you so much or so hard!!!!

Be right back folks... need to feed the snorsie, chickies and doggies.....

-Sir Jack said...

Minxie & Lotus, I've got to go help one of me crew too. I'll be back as soon as my URLS dry. I'll bring back some rum while I'm running. *looks in bottle* This one's a goner.

Lotus said...

Lotus doesn't bite. She might tear you limb from limb, but she doesn't bite!

~Minxie~ said...

I'm BAAAACK!!!

~Minxie~ said...

Bilge rat!!!! You cant put the focus on me.... !!! Cuz I am NOT Sir Jack!!!

~Minxie~ said...

hold please... neighbor issues!

who'sinmybasement? said...

Good Evening Minxie!

For info on Butter Burgers:
http://www.culvers.com/

We use 100% U.S. beef that’s never frozen and cook it up only after you order, just the way you like it. Then it’s served up hot and fresh on a lightly buttered bun.


OK, that's off their menu. All I know is they are pretty darn good.

Lotus said...

Here kitty, kitty, kitty...here kitty, kitty, kitty. Come on, Jack, let's have a cat fight!

shakenbsis said...

Hey Who's! You really ought to knock off the Culvers references! I'm hungry and too tired to back out!!!!! grrr... now I want a butter burger...

shakenbsis said...

Movie Star Wife said...

Black tights (men kind for ballet), biker shorts, and that is NOT JD. The face is all wrong. It's not nearly as cute/handsome as he.

Osh said...

goodnight Shakes! I'm munching on your yummy granola! Thanks again for the fun time yesterday!

Lotus said...

Hello & goodnight, Shakes! Toonces The Driving Cat!

-Sir Jack said...

Well, since no one is around in this nice echoy room...I'm going to sing a little tune.

I'm singing in the rain,

There' no more Loootus,

Lotus said...

Cheeky, you ARE cute! Rumor has it, when you're squeezed you poop. Just what I would expect from a cheeky monkey! Night!

who'sinmybasement? said...

osh,

I just got off the phone with the who'ses. They are at Band Camp. They called me to find out what was going on on the blogs tonight. ( I guess you'd have to call that some kind of withdrawl) They would like me to tell you that they're going to be in your neighborhood this Friday. They will be in the Brillion Light Parade (steps off at 9:00pm) on Friday night. They wanted me to invite you, and anyone else that would like to come. They are the Warrior Band from Lakeside Lutheran High School in Lake Mills. They would be really excited if you could make it.

There my duty is done, you are invited. There is no pressure on you to come, they just thought it would be neat. They really do a great job (yes, that's dad talking).

Have a great night...I'm hitt'n me birth.

Lotus said...

Sir Jack, Toonces says, "Come ride with me, me luv!" It will be like sailing through the air. :0

Lotus said...

Minxie, how's the hangover? Need a hair of the dog? Good morning, dearie.

-Sir Jack said...

Toonces!!
You're not wearing your seatbelt love!
Toonces!!
Look out for that puppy in front of you!!

*SCcCrrreaach*

Lotus, does your cat have a license, love?

-Sir Jack said...

And Lotus...I don't mean a license to kill!
