Didn’t Secretariat do that?

floweringcrabPssst… Did you know that Knight’s Steakhouse (aka our neighborhood pub) serves @strongdrinks? @damnarbor tweeted something to that effect today and somebody retweeted it. Apparently @damnarbor hadn’t ever been there before. I dunno why not but then I haven’t ever been to Pacific Rim and MMCB absolutely swears by Pacific Rim. @strongdrinks is Knight’s twitter handle and it fits and that’s why we almost always WALK there. Also because it’s right around the corner.

My fav-o-rite parts of this weekend? Hmmm… I missed doing our regular routine of walking down to the Oscar Tango and back last night, not to mention the Porterization!, but going downtown to Dee-troit was a lot of fun too. I’m glad our landing back on The Planet Ann Arbor was soft enough and early enough for the GG to set up his new ISS-Above station AND watch the internet for Pengie’s grad-walk. And then he crashed hard.

I wasn’t sure The GG would want to walk down to the farmer’s market today or not. We go EARLY. We aim to get there by 7:00 AM if we can manage it. He rose to the occasion and I think we were down at about Main at 7:11 AM. Not too bad. I love our farmer’s market trip and the food processing that occurs after it and then… I wash the bedsheets and the shower curtain (cloth) and send Roooomba out on various tasks to clean floors and I dunno. I am not the best housekeeper but I am not the worst. I usually make a walking trip over to the Plum Market or two and this weekend I tinked away at triaging kitchen stuff. Keep? Donate? Store for a while?

I hate the late afternoon. I am psychologically geared toward early morning and that is when I do my best work. We dealt with my late afternoon blues by heading out to Lowe’s to buy wood for various garden fences and a gate. I wish I had taken a picture of the clouds out there. They dumped on us when we returned to the Frog Hopper with our wood. The temperature was in the 40s but it felt like 30-something.

    We are supposed to get thundershowers tomorrow, although the temps remain mild. (60s and 70s) Not too many places serve strong drinks these days; I don’t remember the last time I had a cocktail, so I don’t know the difference. However, when I had a Chimay (Belgian beer) in Santa Monica, it just about knocked me under the table. Evidently, the Belgians put more alcohol in their beers! It was delicious though. 🙂 I am definitely an early afternoon person. I prefer to get up about 8 or 9, have a relaxing coffee, then get started doing stuff. By early evening, I’m kind of down and lonely. I wasn’t when Patt was alive, but life is different now.

    We were able to only watch the last part of the Preakness, home stretch as it were, and it looks like it looks like Chrome could be Gold ….
