Lunch Freebie

    You know those scenes where the bartender sets a drink in front of a woman and says, “It’s from the guy at the end of the bar.” The woman raises the glass in thanks and the man raises an eyebrow.

I’m going out for lunch tomorrow, but picking out the restaurant was the easy part.

Norman Rockwell and Fantasy

Big Bang Land

     The show may be off the air, but in spite of the gray-haired woman who waited on me, Sheldon and Leonard are still around, as far as I can tell.

     I truly appreciate our town’s computer repair shop, truly I do. But I think I know now why it took four days to get my laptop back after a rudimentary updating of various things.

      I was trying to be subtle, muttering things about grandsons as I snapped some of the shelves, but I wasn't able to get a shot of the Incredibles lunch boxes or action figures across the room.


    And these were just in the first, entryway room. Heaven knows what else is squirreled away in the back.
