What is that Smell?...

Not much going on in my life right now and I'm a-lovin'-it. Company is nice but I much prefer my routine.

Got an email from the company last night that he had cooked a burger for my dogs and left it on the grill. I ran out to the grill and opened the lid and whew, the smell hit me full force. That sucker got frisbeed into the woods.

Gotta head into town today to get some staples and stuff. Don't really want to do it but I must.

And the durn grass is going to drive me crazy with all this rain. I think I can actually see it grow. Looking forward (NOT) to a couple of dry days so I can mow. Now I know how my hubby felt when he looked outside and grumbled about the grass. It's right up there with all the dishes that keep getting dirty and needing washed. Think I'm lazy? Nah, not me!!

How funny about the smell. Another blogger was saying her dryer smelled like poo this morning.

Must be a smelley day! Thanks for your encouraging comments.

I know... it's our rainy season now and the grass is growing like the clappers!

Ewwww! That burger must have been nice and ripe. UGH!!

Grass is quite healthy around here, too. Get up in the morning it's one length, go to be at night it's longer.

I am spoiled with all of my quite "me" time, and as much as I normally enjoy our company, I do enjoy getting back to my own routines! And it looks like I'll be spending a chunk of the weekend cutting grass and weed-eating ... again!

Am I the only one that didn't have a clue what Hanlie meant by "clappers"? :-) Had to look that one up!

Hey Deborah,

Here's what I found:


Go very fast; in a vigorous manner.


This term isn't common outside of the United Kingdom, and is now considered rather archaic even there. It originated around the time of WWII as RAF slang. The earliest citation I can find is from a 1942 newspaper piece by Associated News staff Writer Alfred Wall, in which he listed various RAF slang terms:

"A pilot chased by the enemy 'goes like the clappers', or full out".

Next time, we will just have to ask Hanlie to speak regular English!! :-)
