Archive for March 2012
To those of us forced to feed the forge and pound the iron onto steel pretties, today was among the calmer I’ve seen in recent years.
In spite of the loss of two sets of car keys which brought our delivery system to its knees like a New York Yankee catcher caught up in the gonads with a 95 mile an hour fastball.
In spite of severe sunspots which disrupted cellphones and all kinds of electronic stuff that stifled communications on and off all day.
March 1, 2012: Rib City (Cincinnati), You have climbed so very high to mediocrity! (120301 Lunchbunch Rib City)
Wee-Willie must have gasoline for pee. How else can she be so speedy: rush here, flee there, take down the New York ThruWay, breeze by Lake Champlain and blow the paint off of Fort George? And afford all that fuel? My oh My!!!
Willie wasn’t with us again and seemed happy as a pig wallowing in warm mud to be playing “real” Scrabble players in “real” venues.
Bless her heart: the whole of the entirety of Lunchbunch’s singles have her back, and I’m told she did very well, although the first day is her ace. Seems to always have the luck on the first day only to face Scrabble fatigue the second day – Don’t worry, Wee-Willie, we’re working on it. Bob just bought a Skill saw; that should do the trick, eh?
Meanwhile back at the ranch, NO SCRABBLE! CB and Bob catered to me and went to the mightyJungle Jim everything store. I totally wore myself out, but I shopped til I dropped, picking up goodies you just caint get anywheres else. Where else, for example, do you find Asian Apples, AKA apple pears?
The last (and first) time we’d been there Rib City was an adjunct to Jungle Jim’s, kinda hidden out back.
I’m kinda sorry we didn’t pile in on a Scrabble (copyright til you die) game or two while we were in the area.
Personally, it was a good day for me; I didn’t feel like falling over passed out all day, but my voice apparently is too weak to catch the attention of my pushers when I wanted to stop, go, gee or haw. Practice. Practice. Practice.
Still, as always, a good time was had by all and a great feeling of camaraderie was rebuilt for another week.
