Simple Things...

...can sometimes make me quite content. Take a sweet Nectarine. Peel and pit it, take 4 large strawberries, and half a glass of orange juice, and half a glass of cranberry juice cocktail, and toss em into a blender (heck we only got our first blender last week). Then blend until smooth. Then add a decent ration of potato vodka. Have a sip or three so the rest left in the blender will fit into the glass. Mmm, is that good? You bet it is good.

Then take 3 Hebrew National Franks, steam them to perfection in the microwave, slap them onto a couple of slices of Baker's Inn multi-grain bread, one of the slices already having been slathered with both Gould's Horseradish and a lot of decent spicy brown mustard. Throw that sandwich onto a paper plate. Grab that glass - almost still full - of sweet nectar. Go enjoy lunch. It is exactly what I just did and still am doing. It was such a good pick for a gloomy, rainy, yet warm summer's afternoon that I just had to share it with you. Pardon me while I have another sip of today's special brand of ambrosia...

Yes, I am content and life is good, often because of fairly simple things.

All the best,
Glenn B
