Early one morning, an elderly retired gentleman yelled to his wife ..."Honey....! Come see what I created...!  It's an abstract panorama depicting the five years of the Obama presidency!"
She yelled back, "Flush the damn toilet and come eat your breakfast."   <g>
Dinner was from the sea.... Lobster tail, scallops, sauteéd mushrooms, on top of spinach fettuccine.

I cooked the fettuccine in garlic salted water, drained. In a pan I put olive oil and a pat of butter. The scallops were coated with Panko and garlic sea salt and sauteéd along with the lobster tail and the drained mushrooms. When done I removed the fish and mushrooms and added a bit more oil and stirred and heated up the fettuccine. Everything plated.... and a piece of garlic sourdough bread was put in the pan with the oil and heated on both sides.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!! Leftovers for tonight! or lunch!
Yesterday I took the boxes for Afghanistan to the Post Office. Those flat rate boxes, with a discount of a couple dollars each because they are going to our military, cost less than half of the regular boxes that were returned. Those two returned boxes cost $95. These three with the same stuff in them cost $44.  One of the guys from our local market was there, Mr. Stoic, and when he found out where the boxes were going he gave me a HUG! He was all mushy about me doing something for our soldiers! :o)   Then in line behind me a gal was over hearing my conversation with the clerk. She said she had done two tours to Afghanistan in the Army and just got out, now going back to school. I HUGGED her!!! She said all the stuff I told her that was in the boxes was what is LOVED by the soldiers....   A good Post Office day!!!
