When Bloggers Collide

Yours truly and the Motmot (of Drawing the Motmot fame)

Live From the Motmot, Monday afternoon:

Just chillin’ with my homey over here at the Rancho Motmot; TR came by for some liquid beetle juice. Nothing like cochineal on the rocks with a twist and a lifer black-and-white warbler to get your mojo going.

TR: “Motmot serves the best beetle juice in town and a wicked platter of wild birds and Zick dough

M: “Don’t forget the fresh mozzarella- I slaved nearly half an hour over that!”

TR: “Didn’t know you could get fresh mozzarella in Oklahoma- you’re about to embark on a third career- they’re going to be lining up to get their gums around this stuff”

M: “What exactly are you saying about Oklahoma dentistry, pal?”

TR: “My dentist is still in New Mexico”

After a fantastic afternoon of Oklahoma blogger buddy delight with the divine Miss M -- I am off to the grocery store for lard, corn meal, citric acid and rennet. Guess what I'm cookin'! Some little Carolina Wren is gonna to be happy in the morning.

Thank you Motmot for a delicious evening of cuisine, creatures and creativity. My right brain is zinging and I can still hear that sweet lullaby of amphibious chorus singing from your pond. Safe travels - I'll see you soon!

I am so disappointed you guys don't live in Oz. So glad you had such a good time!

Sounds like a fun time! I remember explaining to some friends in college that their ruby red grapefruit juice was colored with cochineal. They didn't believe me.

Ooga! Ooga! Ooga! I would have loved to be there, slurpin' cochineal with y'all. No froggies here but I did have a Trixie visit, so life is good.
TR you are cuuuuute! Already knew DK was.
Enjoy making your CRACK.

Zick- you gotta come for the next round! Between the scissortailed flycatchers, painted buntings and TR, life is good in Oklahoma!

I miss all the good parties. And with another cheesemaker, to boot. With the rennet on your shopping list, sounds like you're considering giving it a whirl yourself. You might want to check out New England Cheesemaking Supply.

How great you two can hang out like that. Checked out the frog sounds -- very cool. There is more to Oklahoma than I know. I like what I'm hearing.

I can tell it was a night of blazing, fantastic conversation and fun! Wow.

Get cracking with that dough and watch your birds...they'll be hooked on the stuff.

These blogified friendships are special. We get to know one another rather well before even meeting.

I'm intrigued with the beverage. I read "A Perfect Red" this year.

Regards to both of you.

PS: the B&W is stunning. I wish more people would post in black and white.

ha!!! saying nothing more than the national media says every time we're blasted by a tornado or floods. how they always manage to find the most backwoods guy with the fewest teeth to comment on the big wind is beyond me.

what a lovely time. now i'm off to meet Miss M . . .
