Prospectors Soap

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So my Aunt Connie makes soap and for my birthday she came up with a soap brand for us...

It smells a lot better than I do, tobacco and bay leaves.

Getcha some...

Sounds like it would leave clean spots on a man.  Not so sure I like that Idea.

Tobacco smells divine...until you light it on fire. I loved going with my step dad to the tobacco shop when I was a younger fellow. That was back when they had large bins and you bought it by the pound.

only for smokers...

Certainly not for ex smokers.

I love tobacco. I dream of tobacco. I want it all over me. I want thick, blue smoke in my face and a steady drip of tobacco juice running down my throat. I want it Dominican with a Virginia wrapper.

But we need to keep that genie in the bottle.

It has been six years this (second) time around and I still sweat when I smell it. I can smell a cigar or a can of Copenhagen a mile away in a rainstorm. If I lathered up with a bar of that I would jump out of the shower and run naked to the nearest humidor.

I have a problem.

On the other hand I like goat milk products. Lots of folks at the Farmer's Market make and sell various items and they are all good. And we eat a lot of goat cheese around these parts too.

I use goat milk work soap that is awesome. It is like LAVA soap with some grit stuff in there and it will get greasy hands really clean fast. It even did a good job on my dog when he got sprayed by skunk. It is killer on grease and oil. Several of the ladies in these parts have the recipe and make it with various twists. My favorite is lemon peel. I always keep a bar around.

Must admit Bob, I love home made Goat Cheese.  About the only thing I miss about the wife's goats she use to keep.  Dang things use to get up on top of the truck and leave little divot dimples all over the hood and Top.

Holbrook Arizona. Winter 2009. 

One of those squatters out there had a few goats and a fenced off area just west of the RR crossing road. I had my truck and little camper trailer behind. My 100 lb. werewolf was in the back of the truck.

Guy comes out and tells me I am on his private land. (I am on the county road just before the RR tracks). As I am standing there telling him he is mistaken his goat jumps up on the hood of my new Chevy truck. I let out a bellow. The goat jumped up on the cab. I was enraged. My dog was going nuts. As the dog went up on the tool box to dispatch the intruder the goat jumped over him, hit the tailgate and jumped onto the roof of my camp trailer. Those little hooves digging into the sheet metal. 

The three of us danced around the trailer all wanting to get the goat for our own evil purposes. The goat was dancing on my camper keeping away from us. By the time he came down, via the cab and hood of the truck, everything I owned was all beat to heck. The little goat ran off and climbed his fence and got inside his little yard. His owner beat feet back into his little enclosure as well. My werewolf and I took our dented up schiet and drove back to God's country. 

Goats are groovy. I like the animals, I like the cheese, I like the meat and I can stand the milk. That particular one narrowly avoided becoming werewolf food and I was doing my best to knock his azz off where that dog could get him. My plan was to take care of that creepy owner of his while my dog was busy. As luck would have it they both got away and we got the dents.

That is like showing a starving dog a rubber bone!

I would smoke the box and chew the ashes bro. There is nothing like a really good cigar. And them's some of the best for sure.

After ten years tobacco free I found myself on a fishing boat with a cigar smoker. He was a retired lawyer out of Albuquerque who owned property in San Carlos, MX. He rented cabanas to fishermen and tourists and had a 30' fishing boat he liked to take folks out in. 

My son and I were scuba diving from his boat a few miles north of the village. We had spearfished a couple dozen nice fish, snagged a few lobsters and had a dozen big scallops in a bag. We were coming up from the last dive of the evening and it was absolutely sublime.

Paul (the patron) was smoking a big fat Punch Cuban. The smoke was dropping over the sides of the boat and curling across the water. When I took the regulator out of my mouth at the surface I smelled Havana bro. That smoke went straight to my frontal lobes.

It was one of the best days of my life. After we peeled off the wetsuits and cleaned the fish Paul offered me a smoke. He flipped open his box and there were a half dozen Cubanos in there. Real ones. No worm holes. No cracks. Pliable I'm telling you. They stuck to your fingers in the hot Mexican air. My mouth was producing so much saliva I swallowed three times before I could reach for one

That was the best smoke of my life. It took me three years to quit again. No regrets though. I look forward to another day like that and another incredible cigar one of these days.

And on that day I will bathe in tobacco scented goat soap as well!

This has turned into a good thread, a bunch of stinky prospectors lounging in a goat-soapy hot tub smoking Cubans.  I'm afraid I never graduated from pipe to cigar.  I did pinch snuff for about three years in my teens, though, and even today, many, many years later, I still occasionally dream I have Copenhagen in my lip, and I've even woke up a time or two after spitting on my pillow.  Am I the only one?  This worries me a little, that I might spit in my sleep when the new wifeling is sharing my pillow, and appear uncouth, when in fact I am indeed a very couth fellow.  I really must get a ring on her finger before she discovers I'm foibly human.

I'm afraid the thought of more than one stinky prospector lounging in a hot tub is more than I can handle.

How about a warm lake?

At least a small pond. Maybe a big hot spring?

I love you man but I can feel your toes. Yuk.

Yeah, I'm sorta getting creeped out by this whole scene.  It's gonna take more than bay and tobacco to clear the air.

And it'll take blasting powder to get rid of the tub ring.

It's "How's about dem Bears" to the few Chicagonians I know.

Although one fellow I know would say, "How be da Be-ahs?" He lives too far from the lake.

Funny you should say that. I have been toying with the idea. It makes such a nice stash box though.

I have an old Marvel mystery oil can that I stored away for an homemade electric guitar. Just have to find the right neck for it.

Lots available on ebay…..I got a kit and built a 3 string slide CBG..tuned it to G D G..plays nice, now to get one with frets so I can use my finger for single notes too.

I am not a guitar player but these are fun to goof with.
