Five for Friday

Man, this is late.  I had two wee ones to watch, feed and keep out of trouble and then errands to run after their Momma picked them up.  Let’s see if I can get thru this.

1. I normally have a pic that I take to add to my posts.  I’m visual and somehow they just seem to go together when you do a blog post.  Write a post – include a pic.  Yeh, they just seem to go hand-in-hand as far as I’m concerned.

2. Like I told Lisa, I’m making lobster mac and cheese for New Year’s dinner.  Lobster isn’t cheap here in central Minnesota but my grocer has lobster tails on sale every now and then and usually at this time of year.  It’s kinda pricey to make but it eats damn good.

3. It’s starting to be “that time of year” once again.  It’s time to start gathering up all of my paperwork for taxes.  I made Obama happy last year.  Somehow I really, really don’t want to make Trump happy ever.

4. This week went by way to fast for me.  How did it become Friday so quickly.  It seems like it was just a day or two ago when we were having Christmas dinner.

5.  One of my Nativity set figurines became a casualty over the holiday.  One of the gummys was messing with them and one of the Three Kings took a nose dive.  I know a guy that repairs porcelain tho so it will all be made good once again.  The repairs will cost more that what it’s worth but it’s hard to find large size porcelain figurines here in the states and the set has a sentimental value to me.  Sometimes money isn’t what has real value for us.  Speaking of the Three Kings, here’s their shrine in Cologne Cathedral.  See?  I did have a pic for this post.


Hey, we made it!  That’s it for now sports fans.  Feel free to comment and/or leave a simple “Howdy!” if’n you’re so inclined.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

      1. I loved your pics of Madrid during Christmas time. I have not been to Spain in December. I’ve seen central Europe at that time but not Spain.


    1. oh yeh, porcelain repair is available if you can find someone who does it. you would never know it was broken unless I told you and showed you where the break was.

      there are two things to find in Cologne cathedral: the Shrine to the Three Magi and St. Christopher’s statue. I found both. 🙂
