Just a Real Quick Follow Up!

Just a Real Quick Follow Up!

Just a quick follow up from that earlier post today about National Drink Wine Day here…  I did go with a Pinot Grigio. Yeah, it’s a cheap one. But I still get credit for commemorating this awesome day!

I’ve never been the kind of guy to leave out an important detail!

Hope your day rocked!

 

Enjoying the occasion just a tiny bit too much, I am,

Today is National Drink Wine Day!

Today is National Drink Wine Day!

I’ll bet most of you didn’t know. I’m happy to do my part to let you know about really important things like National Drink Wine Day. It’s what I do. You’re welcome!

This evening, after work, I’ll do my part to celebrate this momentous occasion.

If you pull your weight, I won’t have to drink an extra glass to compensate!

Whether you imbibe or not, I hope this Sunday is  fine day for you; I’ll be checking in again in the near future with another post of monumental importance!

They got me! I tried walking real fast by their table, but one of them smiled at me! That’s some serious high-pressure marketing right there! Unfair!

Yeah, it’s #GirlScoutCookie time, people! Support your local troop! #ThinMints!

 

 

Groggy and with chocolate on my fingers, I am,

PS: Why does Publix allow them to set up that table by the entrance every year?

Ben Murders a Haiku. The Tree’s Fine.

Ben Murders a Haiku. The Tree’s Fine.

I just love this gnarly ole tree.

It’s almost as twisted as me!

 

 

Yes, this noble tree was one of the cool sights I saw Saturday at the FWC’s open house event at the Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area. Had a great time and took about 200 shots. Including the header photo here that, sadly, had to be associated with my lame attempt at Haiku! I apologize to the tree, and to you, noble reader.

Much more about the open house will be coming in a new post later this week. No more bits of silly doggerel! I promise.

Bulldog Was So Happy When He Realized

Bulldog Was So Happy When He Realized

Well, you see, I was up a bit after midnight last night. Oops, that would be a bit after midnight this morning, to be more accurate. Up baking scratch cornbread muffins.

And it made me so frickin’ happy when I realized that the shoe box-size leftover container that I sometimes use to store cutlery is the perfect size for six muffins when you bust ’em out of the muffin pan!

Not at all sure what that means about my thoroughly mundane life, but it was just about two steps short of complete ecstasy when I realized that and starting tossing the still-warm muffins in, thereby fulfilling their obvious destiny!

Doesn’t take much to make me happy these days! I guess that’s not a bad thing…

 

Still smiling in Orlando, I am,

Bulldog Barks in This Quick Product Review

Bulldog Barks in This Quick Product Review

Today’s subject is Liqueurs; and I’m dead-set on doing something I almost never do!

Telling everyone I know to avoid a product at all cost!

Please know that I am deadly serious when I say “do not drink this stuff! Don’t ever, ever drink O’Donnell’s Irish Cream!”

I thought it would be a lower priced Bailey’s Irish Cream sort of product, but it’s just awful!

Tastes like soap! Really! Safeguard, if you must know.

If you’re thinking of opting for this nasty stuff because of price, call me! I’ll come over with a bottle of tried-and-true Bailey’s and everything will be fine!

My takeaway: for some things, you just gotta stick with the original!

Bulldog must disclose that this posting contains explicit Carbohydrate References!

Folks, I’d never heard of the Aunt Maple’s brand before, but the deadly-good chocolate and banana stuff in this mix are NOT artificial!

I truly loved my breakfast this morning! Want you to know that I found my new fave brand of pancake mix at Aldi; pray there’s an Aldi location near you!
