I Went to NYC to Visit the Queen

Well, not THE Queen, but as close as I'll ever get.

I took the train to New York City; a chilly and rainy and foggy day it was.


This is Tallula (name changed to protect the innocent).  She lives in the UK.


She is a knitting friend of mine.  We "met" on our knitting/crochet social website...Wednesday we met in person!  Isn't she just lovely!


I talked her into trying a chocolate egg cream, a NYC specialty.

For those that don't know, a chocolate egg cream comprises chocolate syrup, milk, and plain seltzer water.  No eggs allowed!  Yum yum!  Does it make your mouth water, Mitchell?



I had our server (Mike) at the Tick Tock Diner take our picture.

Thank you, Tallula, for a wonderful afternoon of talking/knitting/drinking!  Come visit again soon, but next time make it Philly!

Look out blogger friends, I'mma gonna hurl!

OMB, if I had unlimited funds and didn't have to work, THIS would be my dream:


Sings: "it's the crap, crappiest season of all"!  Is it January 1 yet? 😡

Even better, is it March 1 yet (opening day of spring baseball games!)? 😀

I h8 cold weather!

New at my house:


Yep, our Mr. Coffee bit the dust after 15 years of daily use.  This is a Black & Decker.


I have never gotten an African Violet to bloom, until now; this one lives in my office window.


Breakfast Quiche Lorraine; this is so damn easy to make AND so satisfying!  The cat food in the background is for the pussie girls.

And speaking of the pussie girls, Nyla and Gigi send their purrs to all their admirers:


Baby sweaters are being knitted in anticipation of John Gray's annual Flower Show/Sale.


Not to be outdone by her sisters, Oreo meows her hello:

A Lazy Sunday

Cold and windy and rainy here.  Just uploaded some pix of various things.

First up, birfday presents from last month:








From top to bottom (hee hee hee), a coloring book, a George Foreman grill, a t-shirt, and an xmess ornament.

Second, this is what the cats are doing today (minus the sun cause there ain't any):


Third, I finished a baby sweater this week for my company's rep in Belgium:


A knitting friend sent me some candy; the maple syrup drops are to DIE for!  AND they are from Canada (Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian followers!).

Have You Ever (or Never)...

...looked to the right of this here blog?

Yeah, scroll down a bit.

THERE! What do you see?

Underneath the artwork is a list of fellow bloggers. Intelligent people all, some male, some female, some gay, some str8...all walking the same path as the rest of us.

Have YOU ever checked out any of these links? If not, WHY THE HELL NOT?


If you like music (and who the hell doesn't?), check out Shady Dell Knight; this dude has songs/groups I did not know existed! Plus he's a homeboy, so RECOGNIZE!

Or what about Jeremy, an artist/vegan young man on an interesting life journey in Florida?

And then there's JP and his husband Guido; JP never fails to make me laugh. And he and Guido are newlyweds!


For a different look at the human race, check out Gorilla Bananas; this noble ape always writes interesting commentaries on strange foibles.

Ya know what you WON'T find? Drama queen quentins, negative nancys, debbie downers, constant complainers, total morons. Ain't NO ONE got time for that shit. Unless you're a masochist.

So go ahead...click on a linky-luv...or two...you might find a new friend.
