    I think it was Star, they had a big star on the building. They made fake pizza cheese and shipped many semi loads a day. I never knew fake cheese burned so well.

    We used to have a big fake cheese factory in Newcastle but the workers went on strike and somebody torched the factory and that was the end of that.
  3. My TV isn’t connected to anything anymore so I couldn’t watch it if I wanted to. I’m watching a feeding frenzy of humming birds on my deck.
  4. This is the first time I heard that Olympic ping pong players have big balls. Who knew?

    My son left work early to go to visiting hours for a really cool guy from the church he used to pastor. It just happened to be in Newcastle so he stopped in the hospital to see how I was doing. I rang for the nurse and asked her if she could find out when I could get out of here. The doctor came in and said as soon as they can get the IV’s out I was free to go. I don’t even remember signing any paperwork. Maybe the cancer center took care of that? My son drove me up to my car (a five minute drive) and I drove home (a half hour/forty five minute drive). I feel good this morning.

    Sweet corn

    Ours is $5.00 for thirteen ears and never a bad ear. Some stands sell it for $4.00 or even $3.00 but you never know what you are going to get. If you think about it how much food of any kind can you get for $.75 these days?

    Sweet corn

    Microwave for two minutes an ear. You can shuck it before or after you nuke it. I think owl go buy some corn. The corn stand is right across from the drug store and I need to pick up a prescription.
  8. I’m wondering if I should try to ride my bike. Yesterday was a disaster but today I feel pretty good. I don’t even have any bruising from all the needle sticks yesterday. What a day that was. I thought I would be getting home quicker, instead it was later.
  9. Memories, a lot of people that don’t post anymore.
  10. The first time I heard my dad use his saying was when he corrected me when I said shit from shinola. I liked his version better.
  11. My dad had a saying he used to use: “That guy was so dumb he did”t know shit from putty............................until his windows all fell out. I miss my dad.
  12. My middle son was playing with a BB gun and shot out all the windows in the garage. I showed him how to measure for the glass and we went to the hardware store and bought new glass and putty and points. Then I had to go to work. I told him we could finish tomorrow. The next morning I was surprised to see he had replaced the glass all by himself and it looked nice. A couple days later the new glass fell out and broke. Then I found the unopened box of glazer’s points. I asked him why he didn’t use points. He said he didn’t know what they were for. Second try I showed him how to use points and he
  13. When I met my wife she played twelve string guitar and sang mostly Christian songs and played in churches and retreats. She sang songs by Bill and Gloria Gaither. When she wasn’t singing Christian music she liked singing Karen Carpenter music. Her voice was very similar. I never paid much attention to the Carpenters until I heard Esther sing them. I became a fan but mostly when I heard my wife sing them.
