RTT - Just a whole lot of silly

Let's all get our random on.
Don't know what RTT is?

My beautiful niece is having a hard time passing her drivers test. It took several (as in we kind of lost track) tries for her to pass her written test and when she finally took her driving test she came within inches of killing the examiner. He didn't think it was all that funny when she took a left into oncoming traffic. Now I just read that someone has taken her driving test more than my niece.

See Darlin' you can do it. Auntie Michele is pulling for you.

Latest painting.

Here in Texas there are some interesting sayings but my all time favorite so far is: "he/she is as happy as that crazy sow in the peach orchard". (Or I think that is how it goes, Jan do you want to jump in on this one?) From what I understand the sows get wild and crazy drunk from the fermented peaches that fall from the trees. When I first heard this saying I had to have it interpreted. They have a million of these little gems don't here. I'll pass them along when I hear them.

Cats are trainable — and that’s not a punchline

Program teaches layabout felines to work for their food

It’s not just shelter cats that need more, though. People expect pet cats to “just hang out, which isn’t realistic,” says Melissa Chan, behavior specialist at the Houston SPCA. Cats are naturally active animals, she says, and “one thing I wish I could tell every cat owner: Cats want to work for their food.”

You can't prove this by JR's cat.

Pita Pizza is just pizza topping on store bought pita bread. Toss them on a baking sheet drizzled with a little olive oil. Top with your favorite topping (if you need hints about this we'll need to talk). Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Pita bread makes great pizza crust because it gets the right amount of crunch on the edges and still retains that yummy chewy in the middle. Don't believe me? Try it!

Well, that's all I've got. Go check out all the trainable cats over at Keely's place (remember the little button?).



  1. 950 attempts? WTH- was the person blind?

    Have a wonderful RTT!

  2. I'm sorry to report that sow/peach saying is one I've never heard.

    Which sucks like a bucket of ticks.

    Beloved read about the woman who took the drivers test 950 times. I was sort of like, gee - wouldn't someone tell you, "I'm so sorry ma'am, but you're just too darn stupid to drive" after the first 200 times or so?

    However, your niece should not feel bad about the turning into oncoming traffic during the driver's part of the exam; Darling Daughter did the same thing.

  3. BAHahahaha...950 tries? How is that possible?

    I love your painting. Where do you find the time? Your house is probably immaculate too.

    I've seen pictures of cats using the toilet. That's all I have to say about that.


  4. Who knew that a painting featuring giant asparagus stalks could be so damn compelling? Cheers Michele!!

  5. I'll have to try the pita pizza, that sounds good.

  6. One pita pizza with the works coming up!

  7. I am speechless - 950 attempts?? Stupid is the first thing that comes to mind.

    I knew my cat was smarter than my husband thinks. I believe my cat know what I am saying when I talk to her. Any truth to that?

  8. You are getting really good with that brush of yours. Great painting!


  9. Nice painting. It's slicker'n goose shit on a pump handle.

  10. I really like the new painting. It's beautiful.

    And I'm sure my cats aren't trainable. They really a really good Garfield impression though.

  11. 950 attempts? Sheesh! As long as it only takes your niece 949 tries, she'll be OK. Or she could always attempt to break that lady's record and go higher. But only if it's on purpose, not accidentally. ;)

    I don't think Norman (our cat) would want to work for his food. I think he'd give us the evil eye more than he does now after the puppies annoy him. ;)

    Happy RTT! :)

  12. Shouldn't this person be booted from the system after say 10 tries?

    pita pizza sounds yum!

  13. I failed twice. The guy in front of me today while i was driving, I'm guessing he still hasn't passed. He just figured fuck it and went and bought a car anyway

  14. Oooooo, I love your painting!!!

    Possum made pita bread pizzas during cooking class today .... yum!

  15. Please tell me your niece doesn't live in Tampa. Sheesh!
