GOOD MORNING GUYS AND DOLLS:
Hopefully I have some good stuff to present to you Speakies today.
NATIONAL HOBBY MONTH - I never had a real devotion to any hobby. I collected baseball cards, coin collections, painting at one time, which I may consider again, even though I hate to paint houses and the rest of the property stuff kind. I would say my Blog is my hobby and I really enjoy it. I remember the late George Carlin said, "Hobbies cost money, I have interests."
HOT BREAKFAST MONTH - It would be great to have a nice size breakfast everyday, but think of all the calories and sodium in those home fries, bacon and sausage. For me it is a bowl of cereal, or toasted raisin or rye bread, with a cup of coffee and orange juice later to swallow my pills. Roe and I go out for breakfast once in awhile at Cracker Barrel or some other small non chain dives. Remember dives serve the best food. Want a great hot breakfast go on a cruise and really enjoy a good hot one every day at the dining room or buffet. At home make sure those little ones have breakfast everyday to keep them going.
CHERRY COKE'S BIRTHDAY - Cherry Coke is good, but to me it brings back memories of my old stomping grounds, the Brunswick Avenue Pharmacy. During my teen years we had a group of about six guys who spent our evenings at the soda fountain located inside. Our friend Charlie was behind the counter and serving us Cherry, Vanilla, Lemon Cokes and the other great flavors that he created. That was my favorite Cherry Coke made at the fountain by a great guy and friend. Most of us guys lost touch with each other after high school, but like I said the memories are there.
WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR, MR. ROGERS' NEIGHBORHOOD DEBUT IN 1968 - My boys watched the show when they were little and I have to admit I thought it was a great show to teach the young ones about life. I can still hear Fred Rogers singing that song.
Have a great day Guys and Dolls.
