moonglow, sliced maters, firsty

yes i was up at 230 am yesterday to see the blood moon
i figured the next time it came around i might not be able to
enjoy its beauty
even my wife she got up and went out on our upper deck
and looked at that red moon glowing over our trees

i took an iphone picture which wasnt very good
on facebook and on the local news website
i saw this photo which was
i think
the best one of this unusual lunar event
taken by mike mezeul
Eclipse over Bluebonnets (Mike Mezeul)

click here for the link to the video
on how to slice cherry tomatoes

since i retired i do a lot of the cooking
one thing i hate to do is try to cut those dang little tomatoes
those cherry tomatoes and pear tomatoes

in the winter thats the only tomatoes we buy since they seem to
be the only ones with any flavor

in the summer we plant them the sweet 100s and the juliets as they
are prolific in their production from the late spring until it freezes
in the late fall

in fact the juliettes those pear shaped small ones are the first ones
that have produced a green tomato in our country n garden this year
sure am hoping they didnt freeze

granted most of the time these guys are just popped in our mouths
chewed then swallowed without slicing

but when i have to slice them for a salad or a meal
they seem to get squished and all the juices stuff runs out
i cut my finger

so when i watched this video i was excited since now i can
slice those guys
leaving two intact halves

i sometimes love facebook and youtube sometimes


click link below to watch
this video called 
hold onto your heart these hilarious grannies are about to fly away with it

one of the reasons i hate to fly is that i get motion sickness
real bad
so i take a medicine that controls that
i take it preflight
get on the plane
doze off after takeoff
wake up as we descend
feel drugged afterwards for a day

i remember my first flight from la to dallas
flying back home
accompanied by a young girl from la whose grandparents
lived close by my parents
i was her chaperon for the trip
it was i think the other way
she chaperoned me
do you remember that ah

yes i was nervous like these ladies
yes i got motion sickness real bad
cause i looked out the window as i was excited
then i had to play board games with that little girl
which made my motion sickness worse
i survived the trip
im sorry to say i did not have the fun that these two
elderly ladies did on their first flights

i cried and i laughed until i cried watching this video

it made my day start off better
