Logical/#SoCS and the #Free48

You know, when your entire week has seemed liked this….

it is only logical to long for the #Free48, that mystical place where you get to do all you dream of doing during the 5 days that seemed more like the 7,200 minutes that they were. Yes, I am being practical and counting non working hours because we all know our minds remain connected to the job until that glorious moment when we, like children waiting for the bell that heralds recess, punch our tickets and fling our critical thinking to the four winds.

My usual tactic for Friday is to find the nearest good food watering hole and begin the process of necessary amnesia. C’mon, you have to know we tried a new place. It was only logical to check out a venue near my favorite Friday hangout in The Battery, (aka Wahlburgers) just in case our choice proved to be a disappointment. We were not disappointed. Spending the evening sipping some really unique cocktails made with great skill by our bartender, Alex, ended up a great way to end the day. We will defintiely add El Super Pan to our list of favorite places to unwind. We almost felt like we were back in Costa Rica, although it is a Cuban venue. The Cuban sandwich was so good, the bread perfect and my Tostones with a cilantro oil sauce were also great.

 

As to the #Free48, there are no plans as of yet. I need to do some serious writing and there are a few practical things to consider, like whether we keep watching our resident chipmunk continue his methodical melee’ on our tomatoes or take action. 😕

 

Well, at least the butterflies enjoy the spoils….

So, whether you prefer mystical, whimsical, magical posts or lean more to logic, do check out our host’s page. Linda Hill serves up some challenging and fun prompts each week for us.  For comic relief and logical info, check out Dan’s place. He is the IT and history guru.

And now…..drumroll please……..for my Victory moment this week!

I did NOT eat one of these…..

(although I did look at them at least three times) 

Ahhhh….progess, and an awesome end to a somewhat chaotic week. Thank you, Linda!

This prompt reminds me of one of my favorite songs by one of our favorite bands.

Tears and Beers/#SoCS

When I saw the prompt for Linda Hill’s #SoCS it gave me a chuckle. I mean, who doesn’t love bodily functions? After I considered the amusing possibilities I decided to wait until the day unfolded. I knew we would have an adventure of some kind; and well, my body would be functioning for most of it, right?

My heart has been longing to see this new film and it did not disappoint. Can you guess which bodily functions were working during the movie? No, you scoundrels, not those. 🙄

 

 

Laughter and tears, that’s what. And so many moments nudged them out. This is a great feel good film. Disney does it every time. We can all benefit from Pooh’s wisdom. Especially a Piglet like me. 😊 See the movie and be rejuvenated. If you haven’t read A. A. Milne’s classic book you should.

Now, I know the title of this post wasn’t tears and laughter, so…..

After the movie we were hungry so we headed to mid-town for  a Burger Quest. I called our son for a recommendation and he suggested Grindhouse Killer Burgers and even met us there to spend time with the ‘old folks’!

The restaurant is themed for B Horror Sci-Fi genre and pop culture icons. We sat at the bar.

This menu was not difficult to navigate. I love a good old American style option.  Double Decker of course. The other half of the menu shows the vegan and GF options.  The beer? Eventide Blueberrry Grolsch

We shared an order of rings and things. 😉

My treat! A boozy shake. I chose the El Duderino

It was SOOOyummy…

 

On my new scale for measuring a burger’s worth-The Wahl-O-Meter (named for my favorite Wahlburger), this one gets a strong 9.5! Pure yumminess and terrific service.

We try to plan ahead so we popped over to the local bakery to pick up breakfast goodies. Of course, one might choose to have something for dessert…later on…maybe.

 

 

I hope your day has included some fun quests! Seize the #Free48!

Just a Closer Walk with Thee/Photography/#1LinerWeds

Being in Nature is the closest thing to worship that I can imagine.  In the presence of Creation I am humbled.  When I edited these photos, one of my Mom’s favorite hymns flashed through my mind.  And that is always my cue to listen.  I consider it her contribution to, and support of, my joy in capturing these moments of perfection.
