Busy Fire Season Likely

Some local news pics of the "Whitter Fire" started near Lake Cachuma and possibly headed over the mountains to the coast.

Remember when I said a neighbor sold for an insane price? Seems zilldummies finally incorporated that into their model.

Dawghaus +$2500/day. Not a typo twenty-five hundred dollars per day.

Based on one extravagant house sale??

(You are very rich.)

LBD said...

Don't give up on the tomatoes, your gonna be rich!

Rob Dawg said...

I showed them a zillow printout down at the Golden Corral and they still didn't let me into the buffet.

Lawyerliz said...

You told them you weren't gonna pay.

Rob Dawg said...

Poverty clings to me like a wool suit in Miami in August. They can sense it.

On an unrelated note. Does anyone have opinions on Scotland for a couple weeks in October?

Rob Dawg said...

The Pope says gluten free hosts are not acceptable but GMO wheat wafers are okay.

Lawyerliz said...

Hahahahaha

Lawyerliz said...

The world is a mess and this is what he's thinking of?

Lawyerliz said...

Is Scotland cheap?

Rob Dawg said...

Understand. "I am asking for a friend." ;)

Cheaper than New Zealand, cheaper than the good parts of Hawaii, cheaper than even... get this... Myrtle Beach, SC.

Lawyerliz said...

Cheaper than my grandmother?

Rob Dawg said...

You've only talked about your mom and Baltimore.

LBD said...

Golden Corral, You are high flyer! We had rosemary lemon sirloin at a Golden Corral last month that was surprisingly good. Better half made a knock off version of the marinate and I grilled it. Not bad it did a nice job tenderizing and the cutting method made it some of the best sirloin I have ever had.

Lawyerliz said...

Grandma was in Balto too, and was incomparably cheap.

Rob Dawg said...

You think I'm "rich" so I cannot imagine the frugality of a Baltimore grandma. Oh wait. I can. The only picture of my maternal Great grandfather is with his mule. The picture was of the mule. He was just in it.

Cinco-X said...

Sounds chilly

Cinco-X said...

I doubt it...I was shocked at prices in Iceland, but I guess it's too be expected. They must import just about all did stuffs

Lawyerliz said...

Rich in quotes is even richer than rich. My great grandma was forced out of Appalachia by the building of a dam. She married th scion of a rich family who fell off a bridge. After a fight my grandma inherited 10k $,;which was a lot then. I am not making this up. There's more to it.

Rob Dawg said...

My grandfather used to cut ice out of the pond in Framingham, MA in winter to sell in summer. I'm two generations out of the blighted potato fields. I makes me smile when people [incorrectly] think I'm well off.

Lawyerliz said...

Her mother was from Apalachicola and was driven off the land by a dam being built. MY great great grandpa was in rhe civil was and I have his certificate which antiques Roadshow said was genuine and worth 400$. There's more.

Rob Dawg said...

Is a two pound cucumber waiting too long? Asking for a friend.

War

LBD said...

Good Morning!

Another triple digit day.

From ZeroHedge

After a tax incentive for electric cars was slashed in Hong Kong, new registrations of Teslas vehicles dropped from 2,939 to zero...

That will buff out. :)

Rob Dawg said...

Not just HK. China and California registrations are plummeting. I wish someone saw this and warned us about it.

Cinco-X said...

That must be the redneck, white trash side of your family

Cinco-X said...

Ummm... Where?

One study even suggested that allowing felons to vote in Florida could have tipped the 2000 presidential election to Democrat Al Gore.

Not surprising that most feelings are Dimocrats...

Cinco-X said...

Ack!!! Felons

Another great thing about city Life

Lawyerliz said...

Hahahahaha. And I wish someone had warned about Trump. Good morning.😀

Lawyerliz said...

I am eating a deviled ham sandwich. Who used to tease me about that?

Lawyerliz said...

Dawg, I'm 4 generations from iliteracy--- the civil war vet couldn't read. I guess he could shoot

Rob Dawg said...

Deviled ham? Love that stuff. An expensive treat. To really do it right a bit of mayo mixed in and spread on Wonder Bread.

I also like Spam. Thin slice browned in a skillet with eggs for breakfast or as one of the meats in a sub sandwich.

Of course we are talking once/twice a year.

Wow! Blown apart by a 20mm (or some such) antiaircraft gun...At least it would be quick

Great Unknown said...

I'm guessing it would be more like 40mm since it is a land-based gun. Most air to air are 20mm since weight is an issue, but over a long distance like air to ground it's 25 or 30mm. The U.S. Navy used 40mm for ground to air in WWII.

Great Unknown said...

My Dad was on an anti-air gun crew in WWII. By a neat coincidence, I went to work for the Navy in the 80s working on aircraft gun systems. That's why I used to go to Pt Mugu all the time.

Great Unknown said...

Dawg,

More than once or twice a year will probably put you in an early grave!

LBD said...

Success! The $1,100 fish has been caught. White bass about 12" long and yes I threw it back. Fish don't know a jet ski from a fishing boat.

I like a good Fried Bologna sandwich with melted American cheese, mustard and Mayo.

Great Unknown said...

There's nothing like going to CA on business travel. You get to live the CA lifestyle without having to pay the ridiculous prices and taxes yourself.

Great Unknown said...

Reminds me of my southern heritage.... eating fried Bologna and fatback, picking cotton, etc. I am probably among the last group of people in the U.S. that actually picked cotton by hand (in early 60s).

Rob Dawg said...

Another checkbox checked. Now for the elusive "bikini whale."

I didn't but kids in my high school class picked tobacco. I caddied. Wasn't always the better job.

Great Unknown said...

From everything I heard picking tobacco was much worse than cotton, but fortunately all the tobacco was in the eastern part of the state!

Lawyerliz said...

I like scrapple. Not spam

Lawyerliz said...

Yuck

Lawyerliz said...

I sold Life Magazine on the telephone

Rob Dawg said...

Nobody asked "What's Life Magazine?" We are old here. Need some new blood. New post. New post with excellent content.

Cinco-X said...

As I recall, the only hand picked cotton by that time was to collect seed.
