Um, Good Morning...?

     Hi.  I thought I lost my scooter keys and went on a panicky search mission this morning.  --Hanging up in the kitchen all along!  And so it goes.  Much to do today, the HVAC isn't cooling worth a darn in my house or my car.

     On the bright side, yesterday afternoon after mowing all the lawn, weeding, sweeping the front porch, etc., I made a delightful treat: a float, with Seagram's ginger ale (mild but very good.  You'd not mistake it for Vernor's or Blenheim but the stuff holds up) with a few drops of black walnut extract (something between 1/8 and 1/4 teaspoon, closer to 1/8) and a big scoop of Tahitian vanilla gelato.  Ice cream goes in last, to avoid over-foaming.  Yum!

     This morning breakfast, not so bad either, an omelette with mushrooms, a little bacon, Swiss cheese and red bell pepper. ('druther Anaheim or Poblano but that's what I had on hand).  Crushed corn tortilla chips in the eggs, with a bit of cold water and some cilantro and good Hungarian paprika.  Wonderous!

     ...And with that, it's time to go get stuck right in.  Ow!

Ever tried making the huge Spanish potato omelet, Roberta?

Mmm. Floats.

I discovered yesterday that the A/C in the Escape cuts out when I stomp it on the interstate. I also discovered that I can get the Escape up over 90 with some room yet before topping out.

The former is probably smart on the part of Ford's design team. The latter is probably really stupid on the part of me :)

Heh.

You know that float sounds pretty good.

And they mock me for my deep love of hooks!

Who is mocking now?!?!

Could be worse, I spent 20 minutes looking for my reading glass - you know the one's hanging off the front of my shirt...

I'm learning to avoid putting things "someplace safe" because it inevitably turns out to safe from me finding it again.

Wow surprised to see you know about Blenheim Ginger ale. I live in Blenheim right next door to the house of the Doctor who formulated it and down the road from the Mineral spring that used to be used to make it and you are right it does have a kick.
