  • If soaking hot-from-the-oven banana bread in bourbon is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
    • By the way, hot bourbon fumes up the nose isn’t the most pleasant sensation I’ve ever experienced.
  • Girlie Bear got her yearly inoculation against alcohol and stupidity this weekend when she joined her JROTC group and a few hundred other teenagers in cleaning up Churchill Downs after the Kentucky Derby.  Apparently it was as disgusting as I hoped.
  • A fried egg and chicken gravy breakfast burrito is low carb, isn’t it?
    • Don’t judge me.  I was hungry, hung over, and in a hurry.
  • Irish Woman began thinking up new variations on the phrase “more than one way to skin a cat” this weekend after Crash walked across her freshly painted porch floor.
  • There are days when I walk around the office thinking “I can’t believe they pay me to do this!”.  Today was not one of those days.
  • Words I never thought I’d hear from my wife:  Let’s get up early and watch the meteor shower.
  • Doing research for the Romans book this evening.  The Romans were quite creative people, especially when it came to torture and execution.  Thank goodness they didn’t have access to electricity and explosives.

    Bourbon? Really? A dark rum, maybe. Brandy (the good stuff) is always appropriate. Did that with port once and it was still edible even if we had to use a straw.

    stay safe.

    Watch the “Passion of Christ” to get a flavor of the Roman barbaric attitude. I know it was “only” a movie BUT dang! Those guards that flogged Jesus were very real in their portrayal.

    Dad used to always say “there are more ways to kill a cat than to drown in in buttermilk.”
