My Post Got Picked Up!!!!!

A blogger once told me – celebrate all your blogging victories – big, little, everything – in your blog.  So here is my celebration!!!! This is totally exciting to me! And, at least for my blog, this victory was pretty big. My post called American Airlines First Class Domestic Meals (which I published on July 16, 2017)…

Liquor Stores and Manicurists

Two storefronts struck me as “interesting” recently.  Amazon has got nothing on these places. One is a liquor store in Salem, Massachusetts and the other a manicurist in San Francisco.  Too bad they are 3000 miles apart (4800 km).  If they were both close by and I wanted a manicure and a cocktail, not sure…

Drinking “Moonshine” In Dallas

Considering my recent post about 6 things I like about Dallas, Tx and 6 unusual things, I went to a whiskey bar there (see Dallas like #3) with a cool cat from California (see oddity #6).   We went a “Moonshine” bar called Mash’d in Frisco.  To get to Frisco, take the Dallas North Tollway North (see oddity #1). What is…

Paul’s iPhone Picture 404

What a perfect picture for a Friday! This is my good friend George and my good friend Liz. Where was this taken?  On my backyard deck.  Which was full of empty plates of food.  And empty red wine bottles and empty bourbon and ginger glasses. What is is? It’s two drunk people about to share…

Paul’s iPhone Picture 304

Picture number 304 in my iPhone – SoundHound. Where was this taken?  In my living room listening to some great tunes on WXPN, commercial free public radio that plays broad selection of music, definitely not the same 20 songs over and over again.  I love listening to the radio. What is it?  Soundhound is my favorite…

Paul’s iPhone Picture 204

Picture 204 in my iPhone – Snow and Our Lady of Fatima statuary. Where was this taken?   At a Catholic Church in the town where I live.  We had a snow storm that Saturday February 21, 2015.  Consistent with the mild winter we had in 2015, the snow accumulated only 4 or 5 inches,…

The Stories of Strangers?

The guy in the white shirt pulling his bag by the pillar in the left of the picture.  He just secured a huge grant to provide fresh water to a third world impoverished country and is an unsung hero of humanity.  Or maybe he got drunk on work travel and hooked up with some bar-lady…
