Hola all you lovers of the certified 'day of rest',
The sunday comic strip section during the 40's in the San Francisco Examiner/Chronicle was around 12 full pages of viewin' and readin' pleasure...It was a wee laddie's first read on a sunday after the paper was delivered...After I became a little older, the 'Sporting Green', as it was called, was also required readin'...I hesitate to call these the 'good ole days' but that's the truth, the whole truth and nothin' but the truth...Maggie and Jiggs, Dagwood and Blondie, Prince Valiant and Aleta, Joe Demaggio, Bob Feller and the best of the best Ted Williams, the real Natural...If not for bein' a flyin' ace in both WW2 and the Korean War, Ted would have been 'the best that ever was' as far as hittin' records were concerned...After readin' the sunday paper, cleanin' up and havin' a waffle fresh out of the 'waffle iron', I would be over at the park with my 'Rawling's Deep Well' mitt throwin' my Ewell Blackwell side-arm delivery...Just call me the 'whip'...I was just a kid but I could dream couldn't I???...I could'a been a contender...JaHaJaHa...
Alice is still in 'big bed' and I am in the designated 'computer room' listening to the rain comin' down with both ChaChi and little Luke by my side as I try and compose a winnin' by-line for my readin' audience...The pressure is on...Soon I will be cleanin' up and doin' a few obligatories as I transform from Billy Batson to Captain Marvel...Shazaam!!! The beat goes on!!!
Yesterday Alice, the resident 5-star Michelin chef, prepared a wonderous comida of gigantic proportions and fabulous flavors featuring succulent chicken breasts, wonderfully prepared fresh asparagas and a fresh spinach and parmesan offering from around little Italy that would have had Popeye off the can forever...Put that together with a great cappuccino frappe loaded with vanilla ice cream and you have a 'horn of plenty' motherlode of culinary excellence...Gracias dear, you're the greatest...
I guess I'd better get in the shower now as I'm beginnin' to feel a little grimy that we don't want to become slimey...Little shower, here I come, ready or not!!! Have a good one all and we'll see ya later if not sooner...
