COFFEE WITH MY FRIEND JIM THIS MORNING AND A FEW MORE SUNSET BEACH PHOTOS

Thought we’d take a short toot to beat the heat this morning but it was already muggy at 8 a.m. so we didn’t go too far and the one spot we stopped Deer Flies were again right upon us.  Pheebs and I were home before 9.  By 9:45 I was back in the Jeep by myself heading for Seaforth Ontario.

LOOKS LIKE THIS OLD BARN HAS A NEW LEASE ON LIFE

My good friend Jim from Lifetime Sentences and I had a coffee blow-out scheduled at Tim Hortons for 10:30.  Nice looking morning but I had to have the Jeep’s A/C on all the way there and back again in the early afternoon and I left the A/C on in the house for Pheebs.  Jim and I have managed to get our coffees down to three hours from our usual five and six hours which I think is easier on both of us.  As it is for two old guys sitting for three hours at a time on hard plastic seats we both nearly require some serious assistance to haul ourselves out of the booth and remain upright long enough not to teeter over.

I bought my first cowboy hat in January of 2006 at a little Apache trading post place near the Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico.   Since then I have bought 6 more hats over the next dozen years we have been winter Snow Birding to the great American Southwest.  Second hat was bought in Elfrida Arizona with the third one in Tombstone Arizona.  Number four in the Mojave dessert’s Kelso Junction in California and number five in Gainesville Florida.  My last hat was bought a few months ago in Goderich Ontario.  Of all those hats it is my Kelso Mojave Desert hat that remains my favorite and at the moment it is the only hat I do not have.  Being a light beige color and because I wear it a lot it had become quite dirty over the last three years.  I tried hand washing it but to no avail and the wash machine was not an option.  But then a few months ago I got lucky after I wrote about trying to clean my hat when a reader in a comment suggested putting it in a dish washer.  Well hey that made sense so a week ago my Mojave hat left Bayfield Ontario for Spencerport New York without me under it.  Kelly took it with her of course and last Monday she popped my favorite hat into her Mother’s dishwasher, cranked up the dials then sent me a picture of the results.  Wow, looks like a new hat.  Can’t wait to get my head under it again:))

I HAVE BEEN A FELLOW OF MANY HATS THESE PAST DOZEN YEARS

In case anyone has been wondering how I have been making out this past week in the food department since Kelly has been away I want to say not to worry.  I bought two more jars of peanut butter this morning.  However i do have a couple pics of my Saturday morning breakfast after I ran out of peanut butter.  By the way I never eat peanut butter all by itself, I always eat it with honey.  I basically quit eating bread about 20 years ago and flat tortillo flat bread about a month and a half ago.  I now eat my peanut butter and honey on crackers and no more than three at a time.  Don’t ask me how much peanut butter and honey I can build up on one cracker but lets just say sometimes I have to use two hands to lift it:))

GROANER’S CORNER:((  A kindergarten teacher gave her class a "show and tell" assignment. Each student was instructed to bring in an object to share with the class that represented their religion.   The first student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David."The second student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Mary. I'm a Catholic and this is the Crucifix."  The third student got in up front of the class and said, " My name is Tommy and I am Baptist and this is a casserole."

- What did the mayo say when someone opened the refrigerator door?  "Close the door, I'm dressing!"

- What did the digital clock say to the analogue clock?  Look, no hands!

Guy: Haven’t I seen you someplace before?
Girl: Yes, that’s why I don’t go there anymore.

A fellow nurse at my hospital received a call from an anxious patient.   "I'm diabetic and I'm afraid I've had too much sugar today." the caller said.
"Are you light-headed?" my colleague asked.
"No," the caller answered, "I'm a brunette."

  1. Your selfie reminds me of pics I have seen of street vendors in Ecuador going to market wearing a big pile of hats on their heads.! And, wieners in an omelet are doable but peanut butter sounds kind of iffy to me. 🐦

  3. I've always believed that a smart man always knows which hat to put on in a relationship / money / work or crisis ?
    However: i'm kind of guessing your covering all 4 bases,,,,,,,

  4. Thanks for the dishwasher hat trick. We have thrown some dirty hats away.

    My DH has a peanut butter thing goin' on too. He likes to put in on frozen banana slices.

  5. Are the crackers gluten-free? How are you feeling these days? Any more trips planned to the doctors before your next journey south? Good to see Pheebs is keeping an eye out for you. :-)

    1. Nope, crackers aren't gluten free Joe. Never even thought of that. Feeling better this week than last week that's for sure. No Doctors appointments scheduled. Not sure if there will be another journey south for us.

  6. Thanks to the reminder of the dishwasher for my hat, I have one that soon needs to be cleaned again.
    Love your hat selfie, can never have too many hats.
    Glad you had a tasty breakfast , that omelette looked tasty, and peanut butter goes well with just about anything !

  7. Peanut butter in the omelet sounds good! Speaking of which, your flipped omelet looks like a distorted map of the US and Mexico. Someone ate Maine, though. 😉
