Re: Mardi Gras TUESDAY@ the MSC

Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday, whatever you want to call it. Around here it's Fastnacht Day. It's the one day a year the stores and churches sell these awesome doughnuts without holes. I went to the local Giant and bypassed the display at the front of the store. I went to the back where the bakery is and ...

Re: Final February SUNDAY @ the MSC

Good morning. I was watching the hockey game last night and early in the first period the Hurricanes goalie was injured and had to come out of the game. About halfway through the second period the backup goalie was injured and had to come out of the game. The NHL has a rule that every arena has to ...

Good afternoon all. As I've told before, I was stationed for a year on a tiny tropical island a long time ago.

Re: Happy Valentine's Day! @ the MSC

Good afternoon. I baby sat my grandson today. Took him out for breakfast and watched him try to eat
a chocolate chip pancake the size of a steering wheel. He ate about half of it. Got home and Jeannette told
me what she wants for Valentines Day dinner. A sub from "Jersey Mike's". :pirate:

Re: Homemade Soup TUES @ the MSC

I make home made chicken corn soup. No noodles. My grandma used to make home made soup and made her own
angel hair thin noodles by hand cutting them with a knife. A lost art. :pirate:

Re: It's February Saturday @ the MSC

It's cold here on the 1st day of February. Yesterday was pretty crappy. My Aunt has been in poor health and the family was told this past Tuesday that they had called hospice. I was planning to go see her on my day off Thursday, but we thought my car had thrown a brake pad (it ended up being a cali...

Good afternoon all. We had a viewing for dad last night. Over 160 people showed up. The local online news did an article about dad calling him "bigger than life". Funeral was today. I did the eulogy and had the people laughing and crying. At graveside we had a bagpiper and had a veteran's group hono...

Good morning. Some may recall I posted that mom and dad just celebrated their 65th anniversary.
Yesterday dad passed on with mom and family at his side. He was my dad, my teacher, my coach, and my drinking buddy.

Re: Surf's Up! SATURDAY@ the MSC

Good afternoon. I piloted a boat a few times while in the Coast Guard and afterwards my ex-inlaws houseboat on the Chesapeake.
Surfed a little bit when I was a teenager. No scuba but I still snorkel when ever I get the chance. I still use the same mask and snorkel
that I've had since 1977. :pirate:
