Cloudy ~ Network Acronyms ~ Younger Generation vs Older Generation ~ Air Fryer Dinner ~ Dude & Bruiser

Good 57º cloudy morning.

Yesterday the cloud cover lasted all day and the temps stayed in the 60ºs til nearly 11am. Then it climbed to the 70ºs. By 1pm we were in the 80ºs and the clouds were thinning. We topped at 88º. The clouds were mixed with smoke from a couple of the fires... one in Ca and one in Or...

What the networks mean:

Ok, here's a great short story shared by pal Gator:
A very self-important college freshman was attending a recent football game. He took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

"You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one", the student said loud enough for many of those  nearby to hear. "The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars. We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light speed processing, and .....", pausing to take another drink of his beer.

The Senior took advantage of the break in the student's litany and said, "You're right, son. We didn't have all those things when we were young... so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little shithead, what are you going to do for the next generation?"
The applause was deafening. Ya gotta love senior citizens!

For dinner I found an Omaha Steaks stuffed baked potato in the freezer, so cooked it in the Air Fryer. It came out all perfect and crunchy on top!  Also found some cooked boneless skinless chicken thighs that I tossed with olive oil and cooked in the Air Fryer also. That along with spinach and tomatoes....
As you well know, that Air Fryer has become my favorite kitchen appliance!

So then it was a phone chat with a couple pals and chair, wine, and TV. Dude got chased off his couch by Bruiser... finally Bruiser decided he wanted to sleep in his chair so Dude got his couch back!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
