TFH!

I was out of cheese and ham. This meant a grocery trip and then of course, visit the American Legion. Cuddily said she would be there after baking fresh fish that she got from her neighbor fisherman.

June is Too Soon

It is Juneteenth, election day for the City of Crisfield, twenty four hundred voters. Up for election are two city council seats for three candidates. The mayor wants to keep her current city council team.

Raindrops and Rainbows

You can take the Mediterranean diet too far, especially with the wine consumption. The noodles are OK if you are burning up the calories, but otherwise they will put on the pounds. So you are left with antipasto, not much else, salad? Chicken Parm? Yes, the chicken parm is probably in itself pretty [...]

Prejudicial Treatment

The excitement of a new baby in the family had me receiving phone calls from all over. The common denominator is that we talked about the weather and food. That makes me hungry and start planning to cook. Cuddily suggested we go to Sysco in Pocomoke to see what wine selection they had there and also [...]

Cap'n Granpa

The Memorial Day weekend was coming up and it is a big deal in Crisfield as well as most of the rest of the Chesapeake. It is the traditional beginning of the summer season. All the boats are launched or commissioned, lots of activity in the marina, motors started up for the first time in a long time, [...]

Cap'n Overboard

The awful jobs get done last. The Atomic Four was waiting for me to pull off the cylinder head, but there was an emergency job, sort of, the mainsail cover was torn and exposing the sail to U/V, very bad.

Sunday dinner was Shepherd's Pie at Cuddily's home on the water. Wine and Irish whiskey flowed. It was a very nice evening and my return to the marina was very late. I called my older brother in Hawaii an hour later than my usual time. The Dallas Cowboys were visiting the New York Giants for a rainy 9/11 anniversary game and they demolished the Giants. The Cowboys were 3 ½ point favorites but won 40-0. Uh oh. The Jets would play in that same stadium on Monday night, 9/11.
.
The next day I had to visit the orthopedics in Salisbury and take another step toward my hip replacement surgery. My car service sat outside listening to music and accidentally left her lights on, killing her battery. We were able to get a jump start and returned to Crisfield. The orthopedics gave me a walker for after the operation.
.
The Monday Night Football game started with a 9/11 tribute. A huge american flag was stretched out across the field while a NYC police department lady officer sang the national anthem. Emotions were running strong as the game started. Incredibly Aaron Rodgers played 4 snaps and then went down injured. He was carted off the field, obviously suffering a severe injury. The roar of the crowd was now hushed.
.
The game was described as "a roller coaster ride". The Buffalo Bills were favored but the game was tied, went into overtime, and an undrafted free agent rookie, Gipson, took a Bill's punt all the way for a touchdown to win the game. It was only the 3rd time in league history that a punt was run back for a touchdown in overtime.
.
Now the Jets fan base is in shock. Rodgers had a ruptured Achilles tendon, out for the entire season. The Jets go to Dallas next weekend to face the Cowboys.
.
I learned my older brother was medevaced from Hilo on the Big Island to Honolulu on Oahu. His speech was affected by something, maybe a ministroke. This happened just a couple hours after I had talked with him. I didn't notice any speech problems at that time.
.
Steaks were on sale at the Food Lion so I bought a couple and some romaine hearts. I biked to the Legion for Taco Tuesday, but on the menu board when I came in was Garden Salad with Chicken for ten bucks. I was craving garden salad. I ordered Sierra Mist with a little ice and a glass of merlot. I sat at the high top with a view to the North, what a beautiful day. Teri, the artist, came in and ordered wine and sat at another high top across the room. She didn't want to sit with me? In fact, without her glasses, she has some trouble with her sight. I thought about moving over to her high top and began gathering my stuff to take over. What if she really wanted to be alone. Then a handbag was draped over the seat next to me and it was Teri. I didn't see you at first, she said. She had to take two trips to get the rest of her things. Then Cuddily came in and joined us. She had whiskey.
.
I ordered my Garden Salad with grilled chicken and raspberry vinaigrette dressing. It was good but the vinaigrette was too sweet. Just my taste. I've never tried to make raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Cuddily got blue cheese, Teri got ranch.
.
It looks like the Legion has lost its cook, but I think the menu might get better some how. He would have had the tacos out tonight, the salad was a refreshing change. They are advertising for a kitchen manager.
.
The next day I was sore and achy. For dinner I made steak salad with my vinaigrette dressing. YouTube was my entertainment, mostly about the NY Jets. It's like the hype bandwagon just keeps going on, Aaron Rodgers or no Aaron Rodgers. The Cowboys were 3 ½ point favorites, now are 7 ½ point favorites.
.
Now, a couple days later, the Cowboys are 9 ½ point favorites. The previous night I was anxious because I had to get up early to go to Salisbury for another Dr. visit. I set my alarm for 6AM. I awoke at 4AM. No sense in going back to sleep. Do the Washington Post crossword puzzle. Do the rest of my morning games. A little after six I made coffee and a nice egg, toast, ham, and cheese dish complete with runny egg yolk. I thought of Hollandaise , the inventors must have started with runny egg yolks. I had time to enjoy my breakfast but had to be ready to leave. When I came back from the men's room Skittlezz was idling at my dock. I hurried to get my things and hop in her vehicle.
.
On the way to Salisbury I followed my instructions to sign up and sign in to my Pennisula Orthopedics account. I filled out form on my phone in tiny print made more difficult to see by the bouncing vehicle and the early morning sun blinding me at times. Later I would enter most of the same information on paper forms.
.
The visit was an indoctrination session that lasted about 90 minutes. It covered the A to Z of joint replacement surgery. I had a few questions and when the presenter, who met each patient individually, listened to may questions she said she would have to talk to me after the session.
.
She used a slide show, but of course now it can't be slides, it's a graphic display she could edit on her laptop. When the show was over she began meeting with those she said she would meet with after the session. My questions were about gummie supplements I was taking in the morning, and where I would go after surgery and how would I get there. TBD.
.
When I got back I was hungry and realized my breakfast was much earlier than usual. I made a ham and cheese sandwich on sourdough with mustard. I had a glass of pinot noir with it. Soon after I felt very tired and began to nap. That didn't last long.
.
Cuddily texted me about how my appointment went. We then talked about the jazz festival coming up on the weekend. Perhaps I would go to it. Cuddily said she and Cornelia Marie would not be going, something about sitting in the sun at the City Dock. The festival is on Saturday afternoon and I also received text from my Ph.D chemist friends, Geoff and Karen, will I be in Crisfield on Saturday. Of course. I sent a link to the jazz festival, wondering if they would want to go. Tickets are in advance. I didn't feel like going myself.
.
We will probably visit the Legion on Saturday.
.
I made a salad of romaine and ham with vinaigrette dressing later. My lack of sleep had me drifting off early. Then I was up at 4AM again. The whole rhythm of life is out of kilter. Early breakfast, too early. I found some leftover pork mole soup in the fridge, must be 2 weeks old, heated it up and tasted it. Doesn't taste spoiled. Cuddily texted me about crab cakes at the Legion, but I was of course not hungry and not ready to go out. My fault for not getting in touch.
.
Geoff and Karen, Ph.D chemists from St. Marys, arrived at the Tawes Museum and they took me for a ride around town, take a look at the city dock where a jazz band and food trucks were congregating, and ending up at the Legion where we could sit outside in pleasant weather and hydrate with adult drinks. They wanted crabcakes or crab. Surely we could find crab in the Crab Capital of the World. Not so easy. We ended up at From Scratch, an alcohol free restaurant, and they had crab cakes and I had flounder. We returned to the Legion in time for a beautiful sunset. The posted image is of that sunset.
