Happy Birthday to my dear friend Michelle!


Today's Question(s):

I very rarely go out to eat anymore. When I do go out, I think I am the easiest, most angelic, ideal diner a waitor could have. The waitor may have different opinions about this, of course.

Well, it wasn't a cow, I can tell you that. I've never done cow tipping, and never grasped why that's an entertaining thing to do.


Bonus Question:

Furniture.


Inquiring Minds Question:

Depends on what Earl's cooking up. We might go hiking, or we might just stay inside and watch movies.

Easy to please diner ?
or a
Pull up a chair this may take awhile order-er ?

I consider myself to be an easy to please diner, but I do have limits. I guess in the last year or so I have walked out of three restaurants due to bad service/conditions etc.

If you or someone in your party is the 2nd one do you tip more ? No, not really. I tip according to the service I received. Actually, if my wife is with me, I calculate what the tip should be and give my opinion, she makes the final decision...


Extra Credit Question:
Speaking of tipping

What was the last thing you "tipped over" ? Probably breakfast last week. Good service, good food, attentive waiter, etc...


Bonus Question:


Last thing you paid a delivery fee for ? Can not remember.


Inquiring Minds Question:


What are your Labor Day plans ? Have not decided yet.


Just for Fun:

What do you call:

The shiny silver stuff that comes out of the skinny box ? Solder?

The clear film wrap that does the same thing ? Clear wrap. Oh, I get it, aluminum foil...

The carbonated beverage(not beer) that comes in a can or bottle ? Soda...


Do any of our QOTD family still have any 33 1/3 albums hangin around their home ? Yes, we call them LP's (Long Playing) because they play longer than the 45's...

Word of the Day:
beek \ BEEK \ , verb;
1. To bask or warm in the sunshine or before a fire.
2. (for wood) to season by exposure to heat.

USAGE? I beeked too much the other day...


For a good breakfast which always gets a gratuity from me, try the Calico
Cantina & Cafe in Los Ranchos, New Mexico (This is on Route 66):


Everyone have a good day!
