oh ya. we went there baby. after spending the whole day planting, building, laughing, more planting and building....we had to go there. plus there is a post by my bestest wiener who is always putting up "tractor girls".
and when my buddy Rob makes a request, i can't ignore it. plus today, jambaloney, THE MAN, made us our version of a tractor (we can't afford one yet...and he made it all out of free junk. i love that junk man!!!)
here ya go....Tractor Time done in the Framboise Manor Style.....and here are the *ss-kicking boots that no one believes exists. enjoy - bahahahahahah!
and another pic for you non-believers!
bahahahahahahah! we had fun.
it was a very busy day as i already mentioned...but what a gorgeous day! have a peek!
we planted a bed of several kinds of carrots, radishes and beets. and laid mulch between the rows that jambaloney made with his crazy mulcher that he made - he'll have a post about it up soon.
how about a trout breakfast, caught by THE MAN, and some fresh salad greens grown in our greenhouse. oh yummeh!
oh crap - holy moly the fire pager just went off - i gotta run!
EDITED TO ADD: well, we got the message over our fire pager - a brush fire somewhere in the middle of nowhere where some "weekenders" or "cottagers" came out, built a fire or tossed a cigarette or whatever...and there i am dressed in my *ss-kicking boots and we get a call for a brush fire. for a few minutes it was mayhem and madness - do you people know how long it takes to untie those boots???? but we were dressed in our fire gear and out the door in 5 minutes. the brush fire was about 10kms from here on a backyard and the actual fire was 300metres by 400metres mostly burning at the ground level. mostly it was a cleared area so we were able to prevent it from becoming a forest fire. a good dozen members of our VFD showed up and we were able to put that baby out in really good time.
but oh my gosh - it was scary. jambaloney and other of my friends with backpacks going into a forest fire scares the living crap out of me. then my friend d handed me a roll of hose and aid "kymber - don't lose the nozzle"! i carried that piece of hose for at least 50ft when my friend b told me to drop it - and nobody else was carrying hose.
in the hurry - i forgot to put socks on. my feet are blistered to heck. i won't even mention the black fly situation...i am bit to eff. and will probably be sick for days.
however, the fire is out. and we are home safe again. it's not easy being on the Volunteer Fire Department...if that sounds like we are wimps....try moving up here, having a pager go off just when you are ready for supper after a long day, and having to rush out the door to put out a fire that some idiot caused by coming up for weekend fishing. or something like that. if our friends, and we, hadn't acted so quickly - goodness knows how much of our surrounding land could have burned down?!?!?!?!?
now we're just tired and hungry. and wished we didn't cook everything from scratch. we'd kill for a can of chef boyardi ravioli right now. we're starving, worn out, bitten to death and wish we could order some pizza.
oh man! this was supposed to be a funny post. i suppose it kind of is.
much love to all of you. we're beat to a snot.
Your fire pager went of because of your hot photos... bahahahahahahah! Why the wig??ReplyDelete
bahahahah! that's a good one Rob!!! and that's my actual hair, i'm not wearing a wig??? much love buddy to you and yours and kiss that little Sammy for me!Delete
Now those are some boots! I really like the look of that breakfast, it has been so long since I have had fried fish like that.ReplyDelete
ya - those boots rock SF - i love them! and the breakfast was delicious! during trout season jam goes out early in the mornings and we eat fresh trout 3-4-5 mornings a week. it's pretty awesome!Delete
You look great in your make belief tractor.ReplyDelete
When you work so hard you have to have some fun. That's what life's for. I have a very old sit on lawn mower with a trailer and I call it my tractor .
Rosezeeta - you, me and jam are on the same page. he built that tractor to pull behind the atv - it is going to be so handy for some of the jobs we have around here. thanks for stopping in!Delete
Haha your photos crack me up! Now that's what you call a pair of boots! You could do some real damage with those heels!ReplyDelete
Joey - as you know, my bestest wiener friend is always putting up pics of tractor girls so we thought it would be fun to do our own version!!! and ya - i call those "the *ss-kicking boots". i have taller boots but i just love those because they are pink and look like sneakers!!! much love buddy!Delete
Hope the fire was out before you got there ! Those boots seem just the trick for oxygenating the soil !ReplyDelete
sweet Jane - we arrived right behind the fire truck. only one of our members was out in the middle of it for a few minutes until we all got there. i wish i had have worn those boots - in the rush to get out the door, i put on my brand new fire boots and you really don't want to see my heels. ouch. much love to you and yours always. xoxoxDelete
Your delish cooking keeps you in excellent shape.! Those boots crack me up, I can see trying to walk in the grass lol. Good way to ariate (sp)'ReplyDelete
lw - i love those boots! and although i thought i was going to need help walking through the grass and mud to get to the trailer, i did just fine! i was wobbly, but i made it - bahahah! xoxoDelete
You go girl love the boots!!!!! Great looking tractor and boots Kymber, this picture does over show PP's half dressed women with boots.
There you go guys, Kymber wins the hot tractor and boot award......Bahahahahahahaha!!!!
Great job Jambaloney on making that tractor.
I love that box Jambaloney made for you, the one you planted your carrots, raddish, and beets in. Can't wait to hear about the homemade mulch-er.
Great catch Jambaloney. Were going fishing early Saturday morning :-) I hope to catch some more fish....maybe some bass, and crappie........
I can only imagine how hard it was to untie those boots to get ready to fight fires. Glad to hear you and the crew were able to get the fire out and everyone was safe.
Take care of yourselves, sending love and hugs your way.
Sweet Sandy - thank you so much! and jam really did do a great job of figuring out how to restore that trailer. now he can use it with the atv and be able to move dirt piles, rocks, tools and all kinds of other stuff - the thing is awesome and so is he! both me and jam hope that you guys get some fish - make sure to take pics when you do and post them! our vfd crew made it to the fire in good time and we got that baby put out pretty quickly - i was very proud of all of us. we are sending love and hugs back to all of you and little Beans! xoxoxoDelete
Wow. A little more leg, some actual cleavage and a real tractor you might could make the Tractor Time cut :)ReplyDelete
You should get to work on that. If it's OK with Jamby Man that is :)
And once again all U'r Trouts R Belong 2 Me....
Oh ya and Tag your it again.Delete
Hands off that trout PP!!! Mine, mine, mine! (stolen from the seagulls in Finding Nemo!)Delete
sorry there wiener - i put your tractor girls to shame - bahahahaha! and sorrry that it took you nearly 3 yrs to come up with a nickname for me - ya wiener!Delete
(bahahaahahahahah! it NEVER gets old. the trout thing and the wiener thing! bahahahah! but then, i am pretty easily amused!)
and it looks like Sci is on to your trout...i'd watch out buddy, she's a pretty sly one - bahahahahah! xoxox
Don't let those laces trip you! :-)ReplyDelete
bahahahahah! usually when i wear those boots i double-wrap them. and to be honest, the last time i had those boots on was probably 10 yrs ago - bahahahahah!Delete
Come on, tell the truth, that's your new gardening outfit! :-)ReplyDelete
now come on Mike - you know we don't wear clothes when we garden!!! bhahahahahah!!!Delete
Kymber, you are a fine looking lady. J knows how to pick 'em, as we say down here.ReplyDelete
The fire thing sounds pretty miserable. I admire you and J for doing that, I sure wouldn't. There was a lady on our volunteer fire department some years ago, and she was hauling a hose up a mountain. Fell over dead with a heart attack, and her only 45. Nope, I think I'll stay home and just listen to it on the scanner.
well thank you very much, my friend. you'd have to agree that i know how to pick them, too - he's a gem. i got to admit that the fire thing is pretty miserable. our 2 communities are so small that pretty much everyone has to be on the vfd. add to that that it takes a real fire department over an hour to get here.Delete
because this fire was located on a backroad and the hose from the truck couldn't reach it, jam and other members put on packs on their backs and then re-filled them from the river. the dep. of natural resources showed up just as we were leaving. if we hadn't have gotten there as soon as we did (about an hour and a half before the dnr did), the fire would have left the clearing, jumped the road and would have head to where some of our neighbours live. so we really do have to jump and walk into fires. but trust me, it's scary!!! xoxo
My son was a volunteer fire fighter until his twins were born. Thank goodness that we have brave people to rush in where others rush out.ReplyDelete
lw - it's always good when people will volunteer in order to help. thank your son for his service for us!Delete
You know it might have been some weekend fishermen with a pair of binoculars (sp*) that spied you in your boots that set off that fire! "Smokin' " heheheheReplyDelete
I'd love to have a little trailer for the back of our mower. But Mars did build us a garden cart that works great. It's not even finished yet but I'm getting a lot of use out of it already.
Dang Jam You ROCK!!! Can't wait to see that mulcher!
Hugs to you both,
BAHAHAHAHAHAHA! OH BAHAHAHAHAHAHA! you've got both of us rolling on the floor with that one! ya, that trailer is really going to help with some of the jobs around here - it's a godsend and it's a godsend that jam can take junk and make it work! we are lucky to have such handy men! he does rock - wait until you see the mulcher - you'll kill yourself laughing - bahahahahah! much love and hugs being sent back to you and Mars! xoxoDelete
Giggle - we've just had ravioli for dinner :) T'was delicious.ReplyDelete
kymber, I l-o-v-e those boots, and, as much as I think the fire would've taken one look and back-tracked on itself, I'm glad you didn't wear them for the fire-fighting task. Me - I'd put them on a shelf and admire them - they're outstanding LOL Well done to you and jambaloney for your help in fighting that fire / preventing it from spreading!!
I know how you feel about fires. We once went on holiday (many, many years ago) and rented someone else's house. A wild fire, fuelled by a 75k/h wind, came through rushing through the area we were staying. We had to pile ourselves into the car, and drive through it burning on either side of the car. Scary, man, very scary. It travelled so fast that only the bottom of the bushes were burnt - the tops stood up as though nothing had happened.
I have the greatest respect for fires.
