In terms of sunlight, no hurry for 21 June. That's when the days start getting shorter again. I'm just glad that right now every day has more sunlight than the day before.

So what am I doing now? Sitting here and thinking Bostonians are a bunch of nuts. The Pats are throwing a send off party for the fans at the Stadium. At six o'clock this morning, the parking lot was almost full. Fans had already started to have a breakfast tailgate. And at this time of year, it wasnt exactly warm out there in an open parking lot.

Now I am a fan just as much as my next door neighbor. But I am not goiing to die because I can't go to the Superbowl. In fact I probably won't even watch the whole game. I will just switch back and forth to see what the score is. I am not even attending a Superbowl party. This not our first trip to the SB. And more than likely, as long as we have Bill for a coach, it won't be our last. The Garden where the Celtics and Bruins play, have many banners up in the rafters. There are banners up at Fenway Park for their wins in the World Series. I didn't swoon when they each won their championships. And I won't if the Pats win the SB. Again!

Waiting for oldest granddaughter to come and get my grandson and take him to lunch. I think while they are gone I will watch a Netflix DVD called Father Brown Mystery.

One of the girls's husband is on the floor crew in the restaurant, she's excited about telling him he is a male stripper working at Hooters.
Nowhere near as funny and not "risque" at all, but I was dating this guy in University whose job was loading delivery trucks for the Bay (Hudson Bay Company) store. On Saturdays I used to make a lunch for us and we would sit in the loading docks. I loved it when people would ask what I was doing that day. I would say I was "sitting on the dock of the Bay".

My whole life I have needed to have an hour of peace and quiet, for me, before I can deal with the rest of humanity. Over the years it has not gone well for those who failed to understand that!
See, I'm not the only one that needs that time in the morning.

I am sitting here drinking coffee and writing the check for the rent!

Every time I write it I think of Snidely Whiplash!

Snidely Whiplash "You must pay the rent!"
Aunt Bea"but, I can't pay the rent"

Where the heck is Dudley Do-Right when you need him?

Just finished the last touches on the Pork Rib Soup and I'm making my first cup of coffee for the day. One of those big houseflies got in. It looks like the Mac Truck of flys, buzzing around and making me crazy. Can't seem to hit it with the swatter.
