Back at home

The parents are back and this was the first weekend I have spent back at my own home in over a month! One thing I have noticed is that their house is 10x hotter and more humid than my apartment. Anyway, I just thought I'd share some of the more interesting shots I took while I was up there last weekend.

Give thanks for good weather.. not everyone is so lucky to have good weather and nice blue skys throughout the year like we do down here in Jamaica(although the heat can be pretty brutal). There seems to be a lot of thunder and rain daily now, the rainy season missed it's May mark. At least my car will get a free daily cleaning for now.

After seeing all the snails and slugs that are drawn to my mothers plants around the house I now realise that for the past few years I haven't seen any of these monsters where I live. I remember getting great joy throwing salt on them when I was young but now I just want them to live a full life. My mother would have a fit though cause they eat her plants and she doesn't want them near anything.

The dog food: chicken neck and back cooked in white rice. Their dog is so spoiled, fat and lazy. He only eats the chicken and a little of the rice then leaves the rest for everybody else to eat and trust me when I say everybody else gets a share. Birds, lizards, rats and apparently now frogs eat the left over food daily. The frogs or toads only come out at night though, so that picture was taken in pitch black.. it came out kinda fuzzy.

The dog.

you should capture the snail and bring it into town just to see how long it'll survive

I'm just looking at the things people pay attention AND NOT THE FACT THAT THEY GIVE THE DOG CHICKEN N RICE!! wat da hell? What about dog food? or left overs? Chicken and rice makes the dog get nigaritis. What is he gonna do when he has to eat cassava instead? Demonstrate?

Oh Adrain, if only you were a French man. Look at all that escargot going to waste. Talking about throwing salt on the slugs and watch them die. How about some garlic and celantro in a wok pan.
Yum yum!!

GC said...

my Mom used to make turned cornmeal for the dog also but not too much meat
leftover fish/chicken bones maybe
is dog food even affordable compared to cooking the dog's food yourself?
