    Default Trail Boss Powder Disaster

    No great harm done, and it was no doubt my own fault.

    Just minor burns and singed eyebrows.

    I mistakenly thought it was Pipe Tobacco.

    Was that the cherry flavored Trail Boss in the decorative pocket tin?

    So, Smitty . . . ya find them eggs yet?


    Guess my mind is fondley missin my Dad, gone 2 years now as of last week.

    Anyway, my Dad was called “ole man” by those close to him from about age 50 when Grandpa died and passed on the title monacure. One day, not long after Dad got this new handle and well before he was used to it, I found him in the kitchen one morning cussing out Mr. Coffee.

    Seems he had filled the new fangled drip coffee things reservoir twice and ran black gold all over the counter top. This was the 70s when drip coffee was a new thing. I laughed at him as I helped clean up, when asked how the heck did he do that anyway he said “forgot I'd filled the stupid thing once and thought I'd go another for sport!”

    I don’t know where it came from, child of a master maybe, but a smart adds remark pooped into my head . . . “So the Ole Man is gettin senile already!”

    Now his deer in the headlights reaction earned him about 35 years of harassment about being senile. The man was sharp as a tack to the very end and that made it even more fun. Everyone that knew and loved the Ole Man harassed him with the “you could hide your own Easter eggs without cheatin, you would never remember doing it” joke. Eventually the standard line became just smothin like “Did ya ever find them eggs yet?” Or around Easter "hey, is this one of yours?"

    So Smitty ifin my Dad did something like smokin his powder, and I’d not put it past him before a couple trips past Mr. Coffee in the morning, I’d just say . . . found them eggs yet?

    OK, AD:

    I'll remember the INSIDE JOKE next time you use it on me.

    BUT, it seems like when you make a boo, boo, when you're older, it's blamed on your age. I've been makin them alla my life, (Just like everybody else.) and it was attributed to other things.

    At least now, I have an excuse.

    We usta hide Easter Eggs in the house, and invaribly there would be at least one that wasn't found. Until weeks later, when we were able to trace it by the SMELL.

    Tis a good excuse. What is sad is my 86 year old Mom started using the line on me. Now even the wife is joining in on the fun . . . payback is . . . well you know.
