This was what kept me from leaving today. Well? not this dramatic but it was raining and the forecast was for storms such as this picture depicts. haaaa I'm a poet.
At any rate! The day turned out to be absolutely gorgeous! I don't know. Joe's stuck in Waco - truck broke down - so, I've got this weekend by myself to do more fine tuning. I like that anyway.
I went to an Asian restaurant close by. Pei Wei... really good stuff... had the Thai coconut curry chicken ... wanna see a picture?
I'm not much on spicy food but love coconut chicken ... I was afraid it was going to be toooo hot. It was spicy hot but very edible ... very good. This is a great little inexpensive place to eat and the ambiance is very nice. I got this plate along with iced water and lemon ... $9.12 with tax. I got steamed brown rice rather than the white.
And, well, if that wasn't excitement enough for me, I went to Sears to see if they had car window shades... nope. I went to Target --- baby shades, yes but I'll wait until I get to a Camping World type place. I just wanted to hang in the neighborhood today - don't know why. Well? I like it here. ;)
AND! the excitement didn't stop! I went to Kroger... got four different varieties of apples - blueberries and blackberries and raspberries and strawberries and some Black Diamond fancy schmancy pimento cheese.... and spinach. So if anyone reading this is hanging on to the edge of their seats! I'll finalize this by saying... I bought a damn ass cherry pie. sigh
I'm promising myself that as soon as me and Homer hit the road... I'm doing a one day water fast. Just to slow me down. I'm not going to write about leaving again ... I'm just going to do a post when I'm on the road ... and will probably post ol Willie's On The Road Again... :D
So now I'm sitting here watching this beautiful day end with a sunset. It sets really fast around here... this isn't flat country. I like the evenings... especially after a warm day... it cools down, I have the ceiling fan on sipping on a limeade and looking out at all the brand new baby green stuff sprouting ... sooooo relaxing and pretty and I'm by myself... Ahhhhhhhh
I'm going to go make some fresh coffee and get a slice of cherry pie ... I'll then feel guilty for about an hour or two... then watch some British comedies... they come on PBS and start with Keeping Up Appearances... just kills me. I'm almost positive I have seen every episode... but ever now and then there's one I haven't seen ...
I just watched the Downton Abbey series. Really good stuff.
Check with y'all tomorrow! and I'll be leaving ya with a bit o' the Irish... everyone's Irish on March 17th. I am Irish on both sides as far as I know.... whatever, I do like Irish stuff.... so for your edification and possible amazement I submit a joke... pretty silly one, too... but then...
An Irish woman of advanced age visited her physician to ask his advice on
reviving her husband's libido.
'What about trying Viagra?' asked the doctor.
'Not a chance', she said... 'He won't even take an aspirin.'
'Not a problem,' replied the doctor. 'Give him an 'Irish Viagra'...
'What is Irish Viagra?', she asked.
It's when you drop the Viagra tablet into his coffee. He won't even taste it.
Give it a try and call me in a week to let me know how things went..'
It was a week later when she called the doctor, who directly inquired as to her
The poor dear exclaimed, 'Oh, faith, bejaysus and begorrah! T'was horrid! Just
'Really? What happened?' asked the doctor.
'Well, I did as you advised and slipped it in his coffee and the effect was
almost immediate. He jumped straight up, with a smile on his face, a twinkle in
his eye and with his pants a-bulging fiercely! With one swoop of his arms, he
sent me cups and saucers flying, ripped me clothes to tatters and took me then and
there passionately on the tabletop! T'was a nightmare, I tell you, an absolute nightmare!'
'Why so terrible?' asked the doctor, 'Do you mean the sex your husband provided
'Freakin' jaysus, it was the best sex I've had in 25 years! But sure as I'm
sittin' here, I'll never be able to show me face in Starbucks again.
