I woke up before the alarm went off (again). This is getting old.

I got a cup of coffee and filled in the Blog. Then I heated up two more muffin omelets (or whatever the hell you call them). I am now into the ones made with mozzarella cheese and they are much blander than the first ones with sharp cheddar cheese. They are a good breakfast, I suppose, but somewhat boring.

It was a beautiful day on Thursday. The weather was perfect; high of 80 degrees, not too much humidity and a nice light breeze.

My morning walk was interrupted by a killdeer in the parking lot. She was determined to make me think her wing was broken, so I assumed her nest is nearby. I haven’t seen one of those since I lived on Palms Road.

I had to go to the credit union at lunch. Since I was down in Westland, I stopped into Red Robin to celebrate National Hamburger Day. I got their ‘Black and Bleu” burger and fries.

When I got home after work, I treated the cat and then changed clothes. Then I searched and found my watering can. I mixed some Miracle-Gro fertilizer with a gallon of water and then watered the hanging plants on the porch. I mixed another batch and put it on the new clematis I planted out back.

I watched the news for a bit then went out on the front porch. The weather was too nice to stay inside. So, I sat in the rocker and watched the world go by.

Eventually, there were no more neighbors to wave at or playing kids across the street to watch, so I went back inside. It was funny. All the time I sat out there, Caley was sitting at the storm door, watching me. She was probably thinking, “What in the hell is he doing, anyway?”

I had eaten my way out of sides for my ribs. So, I thought about Southern barbeque and came up with an idea. I made a blue box of mac & cheese and warmed up a can of Bush’s Grillin’ Beans (the can said “best used by March 2015”). I warmed up three ribs, drizzled some BBQ sauce on top (the sauce is the boss!) and ate another excellent dinner.

I started to watch “Blazing Saddles” yet again (Mel Brooks is insane, but funny). Unfortunately, I fell asleep before it ended (but I know how it ends). I woke up after midnight, turned the TV off and went to bed for real.


  1. You were at Red Robin and didn't get onion rings?!

  2. No, the damn burger cost enough without adding them!!!

  3. They are on the high side and even though they claim to have "bottomless" fries, I don't think anyone's ever offered me more.

  4. LOL! Actually, my waitress (but, she was a trainee), did ask if I wanted some more. I declined, having had enough fried food...

  5. Ahh, so the more seasoned (get it? seasoned! ha!) wait staff are the ones withholding my fries. Good to know.
