Lets see...

I have had two somewhat busy days over the weekend. Not busy in a "There's much to be accomplished today" kind of way. A kind of "Went somewhere did something while not spending very much money and had the best cheeseburger I have had in a long time. I could never eat like this often, actually I could as long as I wouldn't mind gaining all that weight back and risking my health. But why dwell on gloomy, dull, day to day mundane tasks. It was two days of coming and going as I pleased. It's better than spending your day being pissed off. The reason I write pissed off instead of p*****d off is that you'd know I meant pissed off. One can only imagine where that phrase came from. I guess it's better than being p*****d on. Well haven't I taken a left into Gutterville.

But just to tell you burger fans this is not the way I usually eat a burger. I never put mayonnaise on my burger and have seldom put bacon, though I like them both. That combined with the meat that looked just like freshly ground high grade beef instead of a prefab burger patty meat product, plus some tangy cheddar cheese was quite delicious.

To show you how slowly I'm writing this. The paragraph above was written on Monday night. I'm writing this paragraph on Tuesday night. The weekend is fading in my memory. My weekend is Sunday and Monday. That's just fine with me. I am beginning to think about another trip to Martha's Vineyard. I have chosen the week of Memorial Day. That's a couple of That's still four months away, but it's a relatively inexpensive getaway. About a two hour drive and a 45 minute ferry ride and your on the island. There's still a few things I haven't seen or done yet. Nothing too dramatic. I want to take a whale watch. I took one out of Boston a few years ago and the only pictures I got of any whales, which were far in the distance, were lost when I was on the back of the boat and we were moving right along, and the section of my camera case that I kept my memory cards was unzipped and out it fell, away it went. I did get some shots that day but not any whales. That's the problem with being a guy. You got to keep track of all these zippers. So we'll do the whale watch and check out a few other attractions as well. There's the "Oldest continually running carousel in America". It was moved to Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard in about 1884 or so and has been in continuous operation since then. Except it's not in operation, when I go down. It's off season. I've seen  the enclosure where it is. I looked in the windows. One would think with the claim of "Oldest continually running carousel in America", that sucker should have been spinning since 1884. Now that would make it an exciting ride! You'd have to get on, risking serious injury, while it's spinning by. And when your turn is over, they throw you off. Now that would be an exciting ride! OK. so it's not the Sistine Chapel or the Pyramids but it's ours. Right here in the U.S.A.!
It's sure nicer being there while it's happening, but for now, here's a picture I took at sunrise on M.V.

So here I sit. 9 o'clock on Tuesday evening. Time to get ready for more challenges from my workday. Today it was, "Paul we have no deli bags."  They're zip lock bags for slice ham and the like. It was 7:01 a.m. You do get to people watch though. 
Today I saw a guy sporting the Elmer Fudd look. How "Quayzee" is that! Heheheheheh! Really? Does the Fudd look do anything for you ladies? Still he made me laugh. I was so glad he didn't remotely sound like him.

I think I'll finish this gas bag of a blog. It's getting near Tuesday and sleep is so close so...
I'm outta here.   


  1. This is the second post I read tonight that someone was PO'ed. Must be the aurora borialis? Full Moon?
    I remember you leaving your zipper open and you lost your memory card. How's that for a sentence?
    I get excited just seeing a big fish! I probly pee my pants seeing a whale for garsh sakes. Sounds like a nice get away for Memorial day. I haven't had a cheeseburger in sometime. Grilled on hot coals is the only way with bacon cheese pickles an onion catsup hold the musturd. Oh and LOTS of buttah.
    I worked so hard today I think it's tomorrow. No, I worked so hard yesterday I am now into tomorrow. Ya well I think I am tired from working two days in one. Have a good week and order some deli bags with zippers!

  2. OK, the perfect cheeseburger for me:
    1. lean ground beef
    2. cheddar cheese
    3. mayo
    4. mustard
    5. ketchup
    6. sweet pickle slices
    I have been a bit p***ed at life in general lately but I have given myself a good talking to and got over it.
    Fudd does nothing for me. lol

  3. OOPS!! forgot the bun, no seeds please.

  4. Used that have a drive in here that was called the Toot n Tell. It served what they called the Giant Steer burger. A full 1/2 pound on special made buns to hold it all in, piled with whatever you wanted on it. They even had contests on how many a person could eat. Owner passed and family and others just didn't seem to understand how to operate the place, keeping like the customers liked. so the place is gone.

    Hope you get some good whale pictures this time.

  5. Want burger! Big juicy rare GRILLED beef burger! catsup, sweet relish, sharp cheddar cheese, onions, on Kaiser bun please. Don't forget the napkins. Slurp!

  6. Believe it or not I remember when that happened out there on that boat. I think losing a memory card would be a tragedy sorta kinda to anyone. It sure would to me, especially if I was somewhere special trying to get special-to-me pictures.

    Um...no. Elmer doesn't do a thing for me.

  7. Oh wait... was Elmer wearing a flannel like ear flap cap?
    Oh heart be still.
