Our Roadmaster tells a funny story.  He was plowing a new development that had only about three occupied houses, and he was cruising pretty good with no traffic around.  He was turning a corner, and sent the port-a-john flying.  He did stop to check that it was empty before he went back to the Township building. 

Save a farm today or starve tomorrow.

you guys from the south complain more about a little dusting of snow and cold than we do about your GRITS   :D :D 8) 8)

No way.  Not even close  :)

We are well into the 70s now so the Grits would cook if you put them on the road.  :o

   You can even use dry grits to mix with tiny seeds like turnips and such so you can see where you have planted. Dad went to our local store one time and told Miz Elsie, the owner, he needed 5 lbs of grits and they could be old buggy ones as he was going to plant them, not eat them. Miz Elsie said she had never heard of anyone planting grits and dad told her "Oh yeah, it works great. The grits sprout first and shade the baby turnips keeping them from getting sunburned and stunted." Miz Elsie did not appreciate the humor in his reply.

We hit it in Tennessee, then Virginia, then out of it in Pennsylvania, then back in it crossing the hutson  in NY, then all the way to Mass. The car and SUV got quite salty!
