NY Traffic ~ Baby Turkeys ~ Old Person Joke ~ Chicago News ~ Jake ~ Waffle Iron Cheese Sandwich ~ Idiot Firing Rounds ~ Apple Turnover

Good 51º clear sunny morning. We hit 86º yesterday.
Watching the NY news is always interesting, especially at the end of the broadcast they show the street .... the amount of foot and vehicle traffic always amazes me!! This was on Sunday July 3rd....
My friend Vivia who lives in Brooklyn said this area is filled with jerks, wackos, perverts, druggies, and drunks.  
Yesterday I went out back and scared off  3 turkey hens and about 20 little babies! Dang. Should have looked first. They were enjoying the water in the tubs. So I got out my long lens and saw them wayyyyy down in the lower pasture...

And this shared by my pal Patty K...
Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on  a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says, "Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you are about my age, how do you feel?"
Slim says, "I feel just like a newborn baby."
"Really!? Like a newborn baby!?"
"Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants."
So.......aren't you glad you don't live in Chicago!   So far yesterday morning 32 people had been shot !!!

Seems like there is this turkey, a Jake, who takes refuge in my back yard in the shade and by the water tubs. Been there every afternoon until dark..

Dinner an experiment... sourdough bread, American cheese singles, Provolone, mozzarella sticks, butter.....

I brushed both sides of the bread with melted butter... and then started stacking on the cheeses... first a Provolone slice, next 2 American cheese slices ....

Next 2 cut in half mozzarella sticks, then topped that with more American cheese slices (2) and one more Provolone slice....

I cooked it in the waffle iron until browned on each side... heated up 3 Veggie Cakes in the microwave and topped them with a dollop of Opa Yogurt Ranch....

This was the BEST cheese sandwich I have EVER HAD!!!!! Filling. Very filling. I only could eat half of the sandwich and 1½ of the veggie cakes! I have leftovers!!!

Then it was chair, wine, TV time. A Hallmark movie, Boston Pops, and some news. Then when I was ready to go to bed this jack wagon north of me started shooting rounds and rounds.... Dude and Bruiser were both very nervous. No way I could go to bed and sleep, so I stayed up and counted!
