Call in the dogs

I'm a little tired of blogging right now. Both at CCC and other blogs where I occasionally post. I'm taking tax classes to volunteer with AARP Foundation. Working on a couple other projects. The holidays are here quicker than I or my family could ever have thought!
Started some beef jerky today. Will give most of it away as gifts. Also into making bread - loaves, buns, sourdough... whatever. Will probably make salt risin' in the next few days. If you've never had salt risin' bread you've missed a real treat. If someone in your house has made it, you can attest to the distinct smell as the starter gets going. It can be dicey to make, but, it is so worth it! I got some of the "yeast" from King Arthur Flour - will be interesting to see if this makes it a bit more predictable and if it tastes like the "old fashioned" way of making it.
So, I'll sign off Coarse Cracked Corn for a while. Hell, I might wake up inspired and post tomorrow morning. Or, it may be next year. So, in the words of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, I'll...
...piss on the fire, call in the dogs, and head it on back to Bowlegs...
At least for a while...
