Encore / Live / Solo(*)- Dec 1-8-2019...

Recommended Posts

Now, my mom wants to take family pictures, which is my absolute favorite thing in the whole wide world... In case your sarcasm meter is turned off, it would be dingig and flashing right about now...

 

Now, where were we? Oh, Biltong Bar. I decided that it'd be a bad idea to eat that much beef jerky all in one sitting, so I ordered some of the duck bacon sliders, which came with carrots, cucumbers, and foie gras and some kind of spicy sauce.

I took a look at the tiki menu, and they had a zombie listed at the low, low price of $24... The waiter explained that it contained a veritable butt load of rum, along with some other stuff. I decided to give it a whirl...

Now, that zombie turned out to be a pretty great drink, and my buzz was coming along nicely... The duck bacon sliders were pretty good too, but I don't know about $18 good. They had a crispy cauliflower dish that came with a couple of different sauces, along with some fries, so I ended up having that too, along with another choice from the tiki menu... The Mai Tai is the beverage that all tiki menus can be judged by, so I went with that too...

This also turned out to be spectacular... The drink, that is... The cauliflower was good as well, but that Mai Tai? Whoa!...

 

I walked around, and took a few pics of the place before it was time to jump on my bike and hopefully get back home without crashing...

Then, I paid a visit to their restroom before heading out.

Time to go... That's my bike parked out front...

Have you ever wondered why it became traditional to eat turkey on Thanksgiving? Why not stork, flamingo, or swan?

My mom said she got me a Christmas present, but she wanted to go ahead and give it to me... I've had pretty much perfect eyesight my entire life up until a few years ago... That's when I started having trouble reading and such. It just looked all blurry. Being very OCD, she knows that I would never go to the store and try on reading glasses, so she ordered me a couple of pairs. And, like a miracle, I can actually read!...

I haven't been wearing my contacts because I wouldn't get reading glasses.  Finally put a new pair in last weekend and picked up some reading glasses.

I normally do all of my packing the night before I fly out, but since I have to work tomorrow, as well as go to another family Thanksgiving, I'm trying to get a head start on it tonight...

I may have to bring a separate suitcase just for my handi wipes...

Enjoy your cruise- I liked your last review. I actually just got a few hundred of the wet ones- they've kept me healthy the whole year- I usually take several dozen on each cruise.

One more lonnng day ahead before heading to Miami... I'm going to make my world famous dirt pudding to bring to our family Thanksgiving...

 

IMG_20191129_074909.thumb.jpg.91ec98ef5240033a03e6190c8b2f6e2e.jpg

 

Afterwards, I have to go and do my part time job, which will probably take about three hours. I'm going to try and finish it in two... Then, driving way across town again, for one more giant meal with the uncle's, aunt's, and cousins and there kids on my mother's side of the family... Most of them live out of state, so I only get to see them once a year...

 

Thanks to all of you who are reading and following along so far! I'll be ramping up the Live Action play by play starting tomorrow morning...
