Not one of my better postings

This is another one of those blog entries, probably written over a few days. As I begin this it's about 7:35 on Sunday evening. At this point I don't have much to say except that I spent a pleasant day. I watched a couple of movies which is unusual for me. It's difficult enough for me to sit and watch one movie never mind two. It's irrelevant what movies I watched. They were superhero movies, which I have a connection with from my youth. At an early age I began buying and collecting comics and have a fairly large collection scattered over several locations. Some of the books have good value. That ended 40 years ago.

Sunday I found myself in the quiet of a Sunday morning, far removed from the food retail madness of the day before. It was relaxing and later on I had plans to watch the Patriots game next door at Arlene's which we did. She worked until 4 and the game was at 4:30. I offered to show up with our usual antipasto for two and a pizza from our favorite local restaurant Raso's. For some reason I took a picture of the take out antipasto a couple of months ago.

    I happen to love this dish and have eaten it as supper. Aside from the salami (2 slices) there's nothing really bad for you here. There's also a sprinkle of olive oil. So we ate and watched the game. 

This entry is more like a diary than a blog because it is now Thursday evening. This is the first time I've had any down time since Sunday. While watching the national news tonight I was made to feel old when they reported that it was 50 years ago tonight, Dec. 26, that Capitol Records released the first single in the U.S. of The Beatles, "I Want To Hold Your Hand". How innocent a title can you get? The Beatles were a huge influence on anybody of that generation. I was 12 going on thirteen. Smack dab in the middle of their demographics. I still play the records.

For no particular reason, here's a shot out my bedroom window while it was snowing last Saturday night. It was dark out but I guess all the white around reflected the street lights and it appears to be daylight.
 Well I have a lot of catching up to do around here. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday. I hope Rhapsody up in Toronto, got her electricity turned back on.

Well I think I'll go sit on the couch and play a little guitar. Of course it's a regular size guitar that I will play, for a little while.
I have to say this is one of the most disjointed, pointless blogs I have ever written. I need sleep, so I'll try and watch television as well, The only time I readily fall asleep is when I try to watch TV.
Maybe I'll be more lucid tomorrow.

I'm outta here.


  1. Our snow has about all melted away and I am glad. It is supposed to be in the 40s on Saturday. I haven't had Christmas with my kids yet, that is Saturday. I have received gifts through the mail. The photo album is beautiful Paul. Thank you so much. The antipasto really looks good!
    Happy New Year Paul. I hope it is a really great one for you filled with happiness and good health!

  2. Glad to know you're still standing and taking nourishment after the holiday rush at your place of employment.
    Was wondering a bit as to where you were!

  3. While disjointed to you, still a delight to read. I didn't like the Beatles at first. Not because they weren't good, but they weren't Elvis. Guess I didn't want anyone to take his place on the charts. Yes, I'm that old.
    Our snow is much to deep for me here. Over the tops of my shoes so boots in order for taking the dog out.

  4. Lovely to have a peaceful Sunday Morning, and that Lunch looks so good.
    Good shot from your window .
    Happy New Year
