“Mayonaise Well…”/#1LinerWeds

When spoken with a deep West Texas drawl, that would be “my-nez” of course, which I just realized is the way I manage to express the intent to move forward with a plan of action.

Example: “We my-nez well hit the road early to avoid the traffic.”

Mind you,  it’s a subtle sound, almost unrecognizable; and I have done it my entire Southern life without knowing it until this morning.

Of course I am saying, “might as well”, and do enunciate in most all actual conversations. It just seems to be an over-the-shoulder familiar slang language that I use when feeling comfortable with family or friends for my entire life. It sits right up there alongside:

”I’ll holler at you later.”

”We’re fixin’ to go get burgers.”

😱 Where and when did it begin? Why have I never noticed it before? Nobody knows…

Meanwhile, let me intoduce you to the inspiration for the slang, if only subliminally. (Warning: all mayonaise haters should leave the room now)

This jar of magical fluffy white yumminess is the secret ingredient to my ‘famous’ potato salad, great tuna salad, chicken salad, burgers, dressings……..you get it?

Okay then, I have confessed to my faux pas. Now I my-nez well go make a sandwich. 😀💕

and I feel certain there must be an organ or two in there as well…

I snapped this shot of a single thread web strung between hydrangea branches as we headed out the front door.

And this character scurried across the windshield when we pulled out of the driveway…

Obviously making a fast getaway. I thought I caught a menacing glare as I took this photo. I hear there was an untimely accident involving windshield wipers and water….

The first photo and the next were taken using my nifty new little “cheap trick” gadget. I had seen this set of lenses for the cell phone before but always walked on by. I mean, cheap means cheap; and I have wasted more bucks on ‘almost real’ items before. This time I said, “Go for it,”and did. At $10.99 I thought it was worth the risk.

The set includes a macro lens, a wide angle lens and a fish eye lens. So far I love what the macro lens brings to the table. I already get really nice macro shots with my iphone, but this lens gives greater detail to those tiny bits and pieces. The wide angle lens is cool for selfies as it pushes the image back, allowing for a more natural look and more subjects to be included. The fish eye lens is, well, a fish eye. And there’s even a nifty little lint-magnet bag to carry them in! 😀

What do you think?

The Crape Myrtle blossom was lying on the hood of my vehicle.

Cool beans, huh?

What?…Where were we going? Well, one day I will share my recent ideas regarding the death of customer service in America; but let’s just say we tried a new burger venue that sent me a free birthday burger coupon. 🙄 Big mistake.

We ended up going to my very favorite burger IN the universe-#Wahlburgers. Always consistent, always fresh, friendly service-at the bar-and my tummy is always grateful. That’s #Wahlburgers boys and girls, in #thebattery in #Atlanta. You guys rock!

The entire menu looks great, but I have yet to branch out

I could dive right into this Spiked Cherry Coke!

Always perfection. The bacon and cheese…my tongue tingles just thinking about it.

I can think of no better way to start this #Free48 than with this meal and Linda Hill’s #SoCS promt, ORGAN.

I sure hope yours is filled with simple pleasures…
