It's either 49 or 144. Those sound like good numbers to use if you just make something up on the fly. LOL!🤴

If I posted one per week....it may have been perhaps  16 in a given year.     So, over a 5 year, maybe 80.  But I don't do one every week.  Notice here that you have not seen one for over a month. So it might even be only half that number.

And Trivia is a staple of the sporting public.  There are several shows on sports trivia:  Dan Patrick hosts Sports Jeopardy;  there is Beer Money....and a few others.

So the answer is under 10,000?

And yes I like sports and other trivia and brain games, great for these down times in the NFL and NCAA football season.....and yes the Gipper does a fine job on them.

Great cookbook is the first edition of the new York Times cookbook.  Blue cover.

OMG, on July 4th a friend was over we were discussing favorite must have foundation cookbooks for starting or just having a basic collection. 

The blue NYT COOKBOOK came up, I checked we have the blue first edition published in 1961 by Craig Claiborne (1920-2000),  718 pages sitting next to our microwave on our kitchen counter!

One of the few two or three we have actually sitting out for everyday quick use the rest are on bookshelves. 

It is a compilation of about 1,500 NYT recipes from 1950-1960. OUR EVERYDAY GO TO BOOK. I PAID $1 FOR IT ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO. 

The latest edition by an older Craig Claiborne is 1990, hardcover 800 pages,  from what I can see. Wow. Might actually have to get it, lol, I must be sick. :lol:

My new "instant" sloppy joe for this football season:

1 lb of hamburger, well browned. take grease out.

1 can of Manwich Bold

several blurbs of Hunt's catsup.

It's great.

    and, the age-old recipe -

2 packages of Jimmy Dean sage sausage

well browned, take out grease.

add a bowl of chopped up green tomatoes and another bowl

of chopped up sweet peppers, add one hot pepper maybe...

salt/pepper to taste.

saute. Makes a great sausage "sloppy joe"

Sausage sloppy joes sound good and I'd damn sure try the squirrel if someone cleaned one and gave it to me.

My dad used to hunt squirrel, rabbit and "other" small game with his .22 LR single shot but he grew up surrounded by old growth forrests during the Great Depression.  Try it maybe. (same .22 I learned to shoot with)

Now beef, pork, chicken, venision and modern day fare.....yeah, especially if fire is involved!  Ummmmmm. GAMEDAY food!

Well they should be easy pickins' since I put out bird seed off my back porch and watch the little rodents share it with the birds. Now I do have a pair of really fat dove that show up too and come Sept. 1, the season is on. Soak 'em overnight in 1/2 buttermilk & 1/2 red wine,  pin bacon around the breast meat and fire up the grill. Yum! And I bet that would work well on the little rodent critters too.🕊️🔥🐿️

We have a cookbook of my sister in law's favorite recipes. I can tell you she has written up some really excellent stuff that she shared only with immediate family. Everything from desserts thru veggies and everything in between. Great job she did of collecting over about 4 decades and then put into print for us. Wonderful flavors throughout. And like any really good cookbook, we have to really shop in exotic places sometimes to find the exact ingredients.

Anyone like my Vietnamese Dog recipe (other than Cal-he'll eat anything that walks or crawls).😁

So when's deer season up there Cal? Done right that can be some real good football day food.🦌

Every now and then I see a couple of wild turkeys from my back porch going along in the opening I have in my woods behind the back fence. Since I own part of those woods I'm sure I could get 'em, but not sure the next door neighbors who also own parts of it on either side would be so forgiving.🦃🤩

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Wildlife Council has approved regulations for the state's 2018-19 hunting season. The deer archery season will run from Sept. 29 to Feb. 3. The youth deer gun season will be Nov. 17-18. The deer gun season will run from Nov. 26 to Dec. 2 and Dec. 15-16.May 19, 2018
 
    I spend a lot of time in the woods, we don't allow hunting. I've had a couple of neighbors ask permission during archery season,
to got on our land and get a deer that kept running for another 20 yards or so. I respect them - said "sure".
  They brought a nice tray of venison and venison gravy.
  If one day we need food, that would be great dinners. Squirrel - I grew up hunting squirrel and pheasant. Ah, pheasant is outstanding - but they froze out in the blizzard in...76 and 78?
  I'd love to go wild turkey hunting someday. and wild boar. Always wondered how good the bacon would be.

I have seen turkey here in RMNP on this visit to Colorado. Last year I saw a flock of about 5-6 crossing the road on the way up to Bear Lake. 

When I lived in Kansas (during Dodge City days?LOL) I went pheasant hunting with a friend and then later duck hunting. Those pheasant are so sneaky it's hard to spot them  even between the rows of harvested wheat until they pop up and fly. Great tasting for sure.

Squirrel truthfully I have never hunted or eaten. When I was a kid I found a baby squirrel that had fallen from the nest with a broken leg. I nursed it back to health using milk and an eye dropper until it was fully grown & healed. It would run up and down my arms and back and jump from kid to kid. Then it started staying out in the trees for hours before coming "home" and then overnight, until finally a few days at a time. I think he found a girlfriend and went wild because he disappeared for months. Then one day I spotted one outside, brought some pecans in my hand and sat down calling his name. He slowly and carefully came up and took them one by one until he had his fill and went back up his tree. Never saw him again, but I know that was him. So I just don't hunt 'em or eat 'em. Too many fond memories of my "little fella".

BTW how do you and I wrangle licenses for "youth deer gun season"?

Wild turkeys are making a comeback. I've seen them a couple of times on my bike rides south of Dayton. Regarding shooting 'em- a .22 with a scope is a nice quiet solution. (Regarding a .22, I have a story about that one later.)

One thing that we've done too good a job of is restoring the Canadian goose population. Back in the late 50s and early 60s- they were rare. Now, there's bike paths along our Great Miami River I won't use- unless there's been a heavy rain to wash away the unavoidable one per square foot crap the flying poop machines have deposited. They won't even get out of my way 1\2 the time. (I've debated with my wife what would happen if I deliberately hit one with my bike) My brother and I used to have a standing joke about "the quality goose gun", an over\under 10 gauge magnum shotgun. I swear, sometimes they're so thick, I bet I could nail 5-6 of 'em with one pull of the trigger. 

As far as small wild game, I've pretty much tried it all (except goose), and don't much like it. Pheasant is tolerable, but just no to rabbit, squirrel, and duck (yuck). Venison isn't high on my list either. I decided if I'm not going to eat it, I'm not going to kill it. 

Getting back to my story of the last critter I shot. My pal used to have a farm down near the Ohio River in Indiana with no closed season and no daily bag limit. Went down there with Grandpa's .22 Browning semi-auto that I had just put a 9X 'scope on and I was going to sight it in. Went out back, set a bunch of cans on top of a fence, backed off 100 feet, and was going to plink them off. Just getting ready to shoot- I can't freaking believe it. A quail decides to land on the fence. Ready, aim, fire. Guess I'm sighted in OK. Had Quentin the Quail for Thanksgiving dinner.
