stopped at a local restaurant and got some food for takeout.  90 minutes later running for the bathroom.  I wasn’t aware that i had ordered a $20 colon cleanse -- it looked just like a sandwich.  Good excuse to put some alcohol in my gut ... kill the germs.


* oh yeah, the infamous shitt sandwich. 💩🥪 Sorry you were elected to take the bite —

It seems it's been all down hill WRT food safety in the USA since Theodore Roosevelt pushed for and got passed the Meat Inspection Act and the Pure Food and Drug Act . I suspect he either read Upton Sinclair's book 'The Jungle' himself (BTW; never, ever read this book) or was pragmatic enough to listen to public outrage over the quality of 'food' being imposed upon urban dwelling people over 100 years ago. One of your great President's.

 

 It's too bad someone like him could never successfully run for high office in today's crazy world. :(

At the museum event this weekend, this is one of the "foreign rot-gut likkers" we used to toast to PWK:

If you are desperate, starving, traveling with a pet and your local Rotten Ronny's will cook to order at your request (i.e. from from raw patty to cooked while you wait the 15 minutes) McD's is just okay. However, I believe most of their beef comes from outside of N. America and mostly from old Bulls, not beef cattle. God only knows how the source animal is treated (which should be respect and good care) or what they are actually getting in their feed! That said, avoid their chiken sandwiches like death!! 

 

My wife likes A&W burgers and convience but if I'm picking it up she waits (for my 'cooked to order A&W burgers'). Believe me it is worth the wait compared to the reheated, tastes like shat alternative.💩

I've never thought mcD's tasted anything like beef except maybe a bad meatloaf.

i’ve no problem with their “little hamburgers.”  Of course i’ve had better ... a lot better ... i think i’m eating one of the few pleasant memories i have of my life ... being a kid and being taken too McDonalds. Pathetic I know; but that’s just the way it is sometimes.

When I was a kid `68 and five years old, I loved them and remember  they were like 17 cents. + 3 pennies for the pp cheese food. That was when the arches touched the ground in three places and we could run around them. 80s came and besides the regular joints Wendy's had opened and was in every neighborhood here. They were way better than even Burger King.

Mornin' All

 

wife threw me for a loop yesterday

one of those days at work.  Got home, no Hi Honey... it was "I NEED SOME LOUD ROCK AND ROLL" The neighbors got serenaded with 70s hair rock at concert volume.  I started out at normal "loud" level.... At her insistence, the volume knob settled at 6/10.... She was shouting at me to turn it up.

 

 

Now, I have a question

How many of your "significant others" know how to operated your system? Mine didn't. She does now.

 

by the by

She really does like my big black LS.    looks, too

She has a better appreciation for them after yesterday's "listening session"

I remember the Mickey D's that had the yellow arches that touched the ground.

 

One fond memory I have is when I was little and lived in Daytona.  We'd stop by Krystals and get a bag of their tiny hamburgers.   Ten cents for regular and twelve cents with cheese.

Sorry to say I don’t remember my first album or download.  My first record would have been a 45, but I don’t remember that either.  I do remember other firsts such as bike, car, etc.  Who can, or would want to, forget that first etc.?

Now that my geriatric brain is caffeinated, I do recall my first and second pre-recorded cassettes, which were:

731F644C-F472-408F-AEDF-EC59D44E90F3.jpeg

 

They were purchased to play in the Sony FM/cassette player I installed in my new ‘74 Olds 442.  Those might have been the only pre-recorded cassettes I ever bought.  The quality of the tape was dreadful.

My policy: I change it out as soon as I can as soon as possible after she figures out the existing system. That means today, when I get a free minute.

Upon swapping for my first turntable, i went out and bought four (one was a double) albums.

Boz Scaggs - Silk Degrees

Boston - first LP

Marshall Tucker - Searching for a Rainbow

Allman Brothers - Eat a Peach

 

I still listen to tracks off those albums (but digitally)

It took me a few moments to remember all four. Took me half a second to remember the first time I saw a lady wearing one of my shirts (and a smile)!

It was a different time when a bowl full of packs of cigarettes was essential to a good host to offer guests their brand.

The Guess Who's Share the Land was first album I received as a gift. The Beatles Abbey Road was the first of many that I bought. Lot's of Grand Funk Railroad after that. Still have all the vinyl here.

 

I remember lot's of other memberable other firsts too, c/w music usually playing in the background.

Mc D's?  Ray Krock is rolling over in his grave today!  I remember going to a Mc D's and driving 20 miles one-way to get there.  Today there's one a mile from my place and I drive right on by.  Done!

 

Females wearing my shirt's?  Why?  Nekkie was ALWAYS better cause you usually wound up that way sooner or later!  Why would I want burn holes in my shirts???  That was then.  Today?  Ha, a fleeting memory!  :)

Joke in Box does that for me. I had better be at facilities in 20 min. I am going to the bathroom whether I am in a bathroom or don't
