Friday Fish Fry

Dry dry dry. Day after day of no rain. I think the driest in history.

Saw Inside LLewyn Davis last night. Disappointing. I wanted to like it, because the concert put on in NYC in September by the musicians recruited by musical director TBone Burnett was terrific, and I have a lot of respect for the Coen brothers and their witty and fresh approach to film making. But this was just a bore. John Goodman's character was overblown and weird, say like Jack Nicholson in one of his rare misfires as the Joker in the 1st Batman film, or Johnny Depp's characters in the Tim Burton movies—sorry, I'm not buyin it…I don't understand all the adulation for Llewyn. Music not even that good. Very little humor. Best picture of year, puhleeeze.
I cut down a 35-year old Weeping Santa Rosa Plum, the other day, was rotting from the inside. Interesting to see what was a pretty big (and productive) garden presence reduced to a couple of piles of kindling and to-be-split firewood
Yesterday we went to Flora Grubb, a large nursery specializing in palm trees and succulents in San Francisco. Great place, down near the produce market, with a Ritual Coffee stand inside. I shot a lot of pictures, we'll post more when I get time. http://floragrubb.com

Hey Lloyd - there's gotta be some nice spoons in that plum tree?

yes, I understand it was necessary due to rot, but still and all, feel a little sad for the tree....

ah well, suspect will make good firewood, and mayhaps as Richard up above suggests, spoons?

will you be replacing it?

I've kinda given up on spoons for a while. I was getting spread too thin. I need a clone to do all the stuff I'd like to, but can't get around to.

I really appreciated what you said about "Inside Llewyn Davis". Couldn't agree more. Not sure how the hype-factory gave this such high praise but it was a let down.

Use the plum wood for the smoker. Makes great tasting meat and fish. Just soak in water and throw on the fire.

sure glad you are cutting down trees like the plum, and not ones like these.

I have never seen anything like this (maybe you have)..
seems sad they are gone.
