Comment Game

27 comments:
It's time to play the comment game again. We are at the boat for the weekend (what else is new). Now play nice okay.


Here's how it goes: I'll start the game off at the bottom of this post by choosing two words or phrases, like coffee or tea, and which ever one you prefer you choose. You can also explain why. When you have done that you do two new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun. If someone derails the game will one of you put it back on track? Thanks.

This is a great big thank you for last weeks advertisers. For those that I honor each week/month I'm well aware of the dedication you show. In order to stay in the top of the heap you're dropping EC every single day. Many of you have more than one blog and that's 300 drops per day per blog.

Meeting Pete Wilson

19 comments:
Although I don't have a photograph of me and then Governor Pete Wilson I probably would have kept it because I really liked him. I wasn't with hubby then and was dating a guy that was the director of planning and research for the state of California. Because of that I was invited to the governors Christmas party. At the bottom of this post is the invite that I framed. It was a fun night.

Meeting Gray Davis

21 comments:
Hubby and I have never been much for politicians. We were surrounded by them when we were still working and have had numerous pictures taken with them. We always tossed them when the photographs were given to us. Well, one didn't get tossed. This was taken while Gray Davis was running for governor of the State of California. I was running programs (jail alternative program) at the time. How do you like that very blond hair? The gentleman in the middle is Sheriff Les Weidman (he's retired now). Best sheriff I ever worked for. Yes, I'm sure you all can figure out which one is Gray Davis. Didn't vote for him by the way. Just sayin'.

I Love This Horse

21 comments:
Budweiser commercials are about the very best of all commercials.

When I saw this one I spewed water all over my monitor.

Why it was banned I have no idea. I think it should have aired on all the stations.

I Can See!

21 comments:
This morning the patch came off my eye and I got the first glimpse of much better vision. I closed my good eye (wait I have two good eyes now) and looked around the room. Wow, what a difference. Nothing was fuzzy anymore.

Then the nurse had me do an eye test. Keep in mind that the first eye test I did I couldn't make out that great big 'E' at the top of the chart.

Incident vs Court

20 comments:
These videos were taken during the arrest of the suspects without their knowledge.

They are not the usual ones you see of a guy getting Tasered. The video is part of the Taser itself and it records what happens leading up to zapping the suspect.

The Cataract is Gone

21 comments:
At 5:15 this morning we were up and preparing to be at the surgical center for my eye surgery. I couldn't have coffee or anything else for that matter, so my morning started off on the wrong foot. I didn't get cranky about it, but I need my coffee when I wake up.

The prep took far longer than the surgery and in no time I was back in recovery. I was awake during the procedure but felt nothing.

Valentine's

11 comments:
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I've not gotten a gift or a card for my true love. I wonder if breakfast in bed would be a good gift. But then that might lead to a rollicking game of rock, paper and scissors. That can create lots of romance, right?

Why, I'll never forget that one time she said rock and I said paper and that was when the fight began, but we still have the rock and the paper to make into a memory piece along with a great colored photo of...well, that may not be something I should tell people about but I will tell you that it was photo shots of our intimate relationship playing ping pong in pink and polka-dot underwear.

The Outhouse

23 comments:
Once there was a little boy who lived in the country. The family had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was so hot in the summer and freezing cold in the winter and stank all the time.

The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy was determined that one day he would push that old outhouse straight into the creek.

Cataract Surgery

47 comments:
On February 17th I'm having cataract surgery on my right eye. For many months my vision has gotten cloudier and cloudier. As you can see by the photographs above the difference from normal vision and cataract vision. I can attest to the fact that I'm seeing the world through a cataract. Not fun. My doctor has been waiting for it to get ripe and that has finally happened. This surgery takes just a few minutes (about 10) to complete and when the bandage comes off the next day there will be an immediate improvement. I'm so looking forward to this procedure.

Baby Back Ribs

Some time back I posted a photograph of baby back ribs along with our weekend plans with our boat neighbors. My husband loves to cook almost anything, but baby back ribs is a specialty of his. His recipe for this feast is from a Sara Moulton cookbook named sara moulton cooks at home. The recipe that hubby follows is named Slow-Roasted Spiced Baby Back Ribs. Here's what Sara say about this recipe:

Work?

30 comments:
A U.S. Marine Colonel was about to start the morning briefing to his staff. While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, the colonel decided to pose a question to all assembled. He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of just how much of sex was "work" and how much of it was "pleasure?"

Growing Old...

30 comments:
Here's a beautiful message about growing old that everyone should read. I found it very useful and it also made me smile. I'm sure that it will affect you the very same way. For those of us that are older (that would be me) you can take comfort in this message. If you are young and not thinking about getting old quite yet you can take note as to what's in store later in life. Here's the message:

Well Crap... Now I forgot what it was.

The Leaky Boat

28 comments:
Our boat is out of the water for maintenance and a leak. Our mechanic visits our boat every winter to do routine maintenance. During this maintenance we were informed that we have a leak in our transom. Leaky boats aren't good. Since we were scheduled to have the boat pull next fall for bottom work (paint and new zincs) we decided to get the boat hauled for immediate repair.
