ON THE BACK BURNER

May 15

It is really not a good way to start off a day. Spilling a whole bag of pop corn kernels. This is not the first time that I have done this and now for sure, I am switching , when I buy more popcorn, to a better storage container.I knew the lid wasn't secure, but thought I could be careful. Apparently not. Kernels travel and since a trailer is not that large, I had kernels  every where. I almost thought about mopping the floor while I was down on my hands and knees sweeping kernels into a dust pan. But , I thought ,why do it now. Today is my challah baking day .Two came out looking pretty good, and one not so good. It's the taste that counts and I haven't heard any complaints. Not that I would. At Happy Hour , we had some great appetizers that I want to recreate. The one thing that we loved, that I can't do, is the raw oysters. Sweet and brine-y. What a combination. I wish that they weren't $1.50 a piece. I remember when they were .50 a piece. This must age me .

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
