Bobbie, I have never tried dehydrated hash browns. Is there a particular brand you recommend? Thanks.

They also have a very nice masonry restroom in Beadle Park that is very heavy duty. You might say it’s truly a brick S—- House

Edit: why, just today, I was on Google Maps, laying out a possible trip east from the 2021 Spring NOG, and found an abandoned RR right of way right beside our route; then found out a whole bunch about why the railroad was there and about the history of the region. So, there's method to the tow auto-route settings!

I found pre made shells on line, but have never seen them locally in stores, and I'd never go through enough to buy 240 of them.

I did cook a couple of frozen ones - 15 minutes on parchment paper at 350°F, flip & another 10 minutes till done.

Sorry about killing your favorites. Just so you know, for a cheap red blended wine, I really like Silk & Spice from Portugal. Still available in a few stores here in the East, but I couldn't find it out West. Another favorite is 1000 Islands Gewürztraminer, a local white wine that you can't get outside of upstate NY. Hope I don't destroy either of these...

I also like Hungry Jack - haven't tried Idahoan. I do wish someone would make them in smaller than 4.2 oz portions. Just a bit much for one person's breakfast!

That reminds me. What self respecting hoarder would be without a couple vintage Milwaukee Road belt buckles? Not me. I saw them in a box just the other day. Now where’s my Rock Island Line old fashioned glass ?

And so, I have to ask. I have a deputy sheriff badge ( brass star-shape ) from Durango. Bought it about 40 years ago at a flea market. What are the chances it is authentic?

It's rather substantially made for a trinket.

Who knows

Hard to tell. The next time you go to a gun show take it along. There’s usually a guy at every show with western memorabilia.

I had an authentic Parks Commissioner badge. I bought it a a show in the 70s. It was brass and pretty nice. I got a piece of oak, cut a slot in it with the Dremel so the badge would set upright. I found a couple pictures a friend had sent me of two of my old commissioners and a third commissioner from the 60s in our home town. I put those picture in clear plastic frames and gave it to my last real park man commissioner at coffee one day. He is a tough guy but I thought he was going to cry.

There were a lot of badges made and being usually brass, they held up pretty well. The pin on the back is an important difference (whether or not it is there) and if it is “personalized” with the name of the governing agency as part of the design, in deterring value. As you noted fakes are usually not very heavy duty. The proverbial Tin Star. I’m not a badge collector but I do like my Heavy Equipment watch fobs.

I often just make up half of them.

It's not Deputy, it's Sheriff, but it doesn't look like a prize in a pudding box.

Badge

Need an expert.
Remember those old westerns where the gunfighter would shoot the sheriff through his duster and then, as the sheriff fell backwards, he’d get off a wild shot that drilled the gunfighter. The next frames were of the sheriff opening his coat to expose his big badge with a nasty .44 dent in it? Those were the days. Apparently the Durango sheriff was either lightning fast or hired a sniper with a thutty thutty to ambush the gunfighter from the second story of the
hotel / brothel.

Tried grits for the first time this morning. While I probably should try them cooked by an expert before passing judgement, for now, I'll stick with oatmeal...

Jon,
Similar to beer and wine, you have some good grits and bad ones taste wise. There should be enough butter in them so that they are like mashed potatoes creamy, add some ham cubes and cheddar cheese, almost as good as poutine......

The finest grits I have ever eaten, have been prepared by Earline Sonnenberg of Bill and Earline. Earline’s cooking ability is terrific and even though I don’t usually fix grits myself, I never miss a helping or two when I get a chance to get some of Earline’s grits. The Quaker Oats company in Cedar Rapids makes makes grits right along with their famous oatmeal products and the flagship cereal Captain Crunch. A nice bowl of grits in the morning gets me through the rigors of a morning Escape trailer rally.

Hi: Iowa Dave... I just finished a batch of Orange Marmalade.
2 large Navel oranges 1/8" chopped in a food processor. 1 cup of OJ, and 1 1/3 cups of sugar. Bring it to a boil on medium heat and cook on a low boil stiring frequently so as not to scorch for about 30-40 min.
Add a dollop to your grits, or to vanilla icecream, or right off the spoon!!!
Best thing is it's fat free and gluten free too!!! Alf

As much sugar as you have in there if I’d put it out for the orioles to eat they would be zooming around like the Air Force Thunderbirds. Birds in the yard these days are really a high point to confinement living. Hope they don’t deport the Chinese Ringneck Pheasants out here. They are crowing from sun up to sun down. Lots of birds.
