Recommended Posts

This is what you need, from fresh bread to real ribs. Sam the Cooking Guy has a great YouTube channel.  We got his newest Cook Book for my MIL for Christmas.

Nice, but there is something to be said for embracing an old friend

I went to the hair salon today and got highlights and cut and blow dry so I can stay blonde lol.  I've been going regularly since May (break between Mar-May) wearing masks of course.    Starting to wrap Christmas gifts also.  My former co-worker retired yesterday with a ceremony and I couldn't go because unless you are badged for the facility, you can't go in.  I retired at the end March, without a ceremony since everything was in harder lockdown.  My former boss wants to bring me back when he can, but between the fact I got no retirement ceremony and my 60th birthday was also in March, with no party, it kinda sucked.  Not what I had planned when I submitted my retirement paperwork in July 2019.

 

As for deer, I caught two young bucks on my backyard security camera over a month ago.  We have seen does but this is the first time we've seen bucks on them.  We see raccoons, opossums and fox all the time.  We've seen a larger buck but not caught it on camera yet.  We're suburban but up until about 19 years ago our neighborhood was farmland and we have wooded areas all around.

Not when that old friend is McDs.  Other than their fries, I put McDonald's behind Wendy's and Burger King.  I'll take a slice of Andrew's sandwich over the McRib without even having tasted it.

 

And while I'm at it (this may get me blocked by some people), I don't get the cult like following for Chik-fil-A.

Love the security cam pictures.

 

Something about being able to see nature at its best.

 

I remember the first time I saw security cam pictures was shared by TRAINMAN.....may he RIP.

 

So much neat stuff being shared on this thread, and I enjoy all of it.

 

Stay healthy

Yes. I’ve enjoyed this Routine Day thread. I hope it lasts even when the ships sail again full steam ahead.

I know some who love their sandwiches.  I'm so so, can make one just as good with tenders fro kroger I bake, but it's ok. 

 

Tbh I cant make myself go to my local Burger King for years  now, ever since the city closed them down for sanitation.    Havent been back since. Took them at least 6 months maybe longer to pass. My dad likes panda express. My parents are tiny eaters. One plate with 3 entrees we have left over when the 3 of us share it.

One of Trainman's friends is keeping a continuing thread in his memory...

Sacrilege on the CFA comment. You should probably go back to Ohio.

 

Speaking of cult following, that's definitely the McRib

When I worked for Lincoln Mercury in Daytona, the founder of Chick-Fil-A (S. Truett Cathy) used to come see me to buy his Lincoln Town cars.  He always bought used, and I always called him as soon as I knew one was coming in on trade in that very clean.  He bought 4 of them over 4 years from me, and sent in friends to buy.  Very nice man, very wealthy, but also very frugal with his money. 

 

When he came in he would pass out stacks of free chicken sandwich coupons for our whole team.  😉

Well, she's been trying to.  Not much activity the last few months and since his widow Judith doesn't participate, there's not much to post anymore.

Both of those are true.   

 

My former boss loves the McRib and as soon as he hears it's out, he goes and gets them.  Me, personally, I think they taste like a hotdog with bbq sauce and I don't like hot dogs.

Agree. She just posted that Jim's brother also passed away...

Oh, wow.  I hadn't seen that.  He used to post some on the thread when Jim was sick.

I met Truett at a charity golf tournament in Atlanta.  They were friends with the owner of our company. 

 

He owned one of the original 80's Batmobiles.

Kept it at his office in Atlanta

I had never heard of CFA until I started doing the car tours in the States. I found the sandwich and fries pretty decent. A much better option than McDonalds. I loved their sweet tea.
 

The entire drive through style, with humans taking drive through orders had me a bit surprised. I guess that is part of their “family style”.  LOL, sure would not work here in the winter.

Definitely a nice man, was happy to meet him and kept in contact for years.  🙂  Passed away in 2014, the world lost a great guy.  I think he had a condo in Daytona Beach, can't remember, but he did spend time off and on in Daytona.
