Good Morning Guys and Dolls,
Those fishing pictures will be posted soon and would like to say thanks for a great week fishing with my Good Buddy Joey G and my sons Joey and Jeff. Thanks for giving the old man a great time. I can't believe that May is almost over so let us catch up on the holidays and foods we missed.
MAY IS THE NATIONAL RESPECT FOR CHICKEN MONTH - There are two dishes I love that Roe creates, one is a thin chicken parm and the other is a chicken thigh dish with all kinds of good stuff. I never ask a women for her secret recipes. The rest of chicken you can have and enjoy.
CLEAN AIR MONTH - Now that is harder to breath for many reasons, I have one complaint. The A-Holes in Congress who still don't believe in global warming and doing nothing maybe one or two bills. I also hold all those companies who did not protect their employees from hazardous materials and fumes. To the Vietnam Vets tell the government thanks for "Agent Orange." We should have left that sh-t hole earlier.
THE FOURTH WEEK OF MAY WE HONOR FROZEN YOGURT WEEK - Pretty good substitute for ice cream. I tried and liked Publix's Vanilla and Chocolate frozen yogurt. Very smooth and tasty.
NATIONAL SHOE WEEK - Does anyone one know how many shoes and styles you had throughout the years? This is what I remember:
Flip Flops - always hated them...
Roman Sandals - gave me blisters on my heels.
Sneakers all kinds of styles and colors.
Buckskin Shoes (Thanks Pat Boone).
Desert Boots - one of my favorites, just saw them at Target but in canvas.
Service Shoes - Both dress and boots for every day use and for those special dress and parade day a pair of Patent Leather dress shoes.
Disco platform shoes. Now as I am aging in life it is those sneakers made with those bands of Velcro.
MAY 29, WE CELEBRATE THE FOLLOWING:
PINK FLAMINGO DAY - Beautiful birds in person to see, come to Florida and enjoy. Now Roe and I have had plastic Pink Flamingo,s always in front of our house. Enough said this subject.
JOHN F. KENNEDY'S BIRTHDAY - Great American President born this date in 1917. My Dad met him in person while working at the New Jersey Governor's Mansion while he was running against "Tricky Dick Nixon." His motorcade passed our house while heading to the train station. Brunswick Ave. was crowded with more people than five Super Bowls. Great president, but like the great ones, there is always someone out there being an idiot.
COQ AU VIN DAY - Is a French braise of chicken cooked with wine, lardons, mushrooms and with options of garlic added. Stick it with the other chicken stuff I don't want to eat.
HAVE A GREAT DAY SPEAKIES.
