         I didn't post last night because I didn't get home until about 10:45 or so from Ft. Lauderdale. An early post today because we're going to dinner to celebrate my birthday a week after it. There' is no way I'm missing two nights in a row.

What a great song tonight. One of the best of the 70s.

s - I've had that song going in my mind all day. I had to post it tonight.
A picture is worth 1000 words.

         Believe it or not, I managed to write a new story. I started it over a year ago for a challenge, but never finished it. I managed to do that last night.

         What else? Dinner! At one of my favorite places here in Ft Lauderdale. Eatapas.          https://eatapasfl.com/fort-lauderdale-eatapas-food-menu           Except tonight I was joined by two students, a rare treat. The company was excellent, the food even more so. I was pretty hungry and took only one photo. Tonight I enjoyed Gambas Al Ajillo (Shrimp Marinated with Garlic & Spices), Boquernos en Vinagre (Vinagrete Marinated Anchovies, just Excellent), and Rabo de Tore a la Sevillana (Ox Tail Stew). I don't think I could have chosen a better combination. Each was delicious in it's own way. I just didn't snap enough photos. Know that I left nothing behind. I shared a little bit of the Anchovies with Randy, one of my students. In exchange, I had some of his Serrano Ham. What a meal! And as much as I love Paella, I still haven't had it here. If you're in Fort Lauderdale, this is someplace you'll want to visit.

Sounds like you need a cot for dessert, or at the very least an early bedtime. You really “loaded the wagon,” there. 😉

Jay O'Toole - Well, my meal consisted of small plates (Tapas), so it wasn't all that much. The 3 plates, plus an Old Fashioned was less than $50 at least....
Sum1 - Thanks, Jim. That explains a lot.

For a weird time, check out Devo's cover of the Rolling Stones' 'Satisfaction'

(And I posted the same joke as well... *BigSmile*)
*Smile* Nice pun.

s - it is a form of retirement account
s  
markmore - I get that. But - does the employer contribute? The employee? The government? All or a mixture? Is there a set amount/%age to be put in? Is it compulsory?
s  
Thanks. For Australians, it is a form of superannuation, but, it seems, with less safeguards.

I think I have a handle on it.

         I am such a SAP about a good love story, and I don't mind that one bit. In fact, I love it. I got back to the hotel and turned the TV on to find Pretty Woman was showing. It was the scene where they attended the Opera. I had to finish it, you know? Yeah, you guessed it. At the end where Richard Gere climbs the ladder (Remember he's terrified of heights).... my eyes were overflowing.

         Are there movies that affect you this way? For me:

1. Dave: Kevin Kline, Sigourney Weaver - The scene where Ving Rhames tells Dave (Kevin Kline) that he would have taken a bullet for him.

2. The Green Mile. Anything that involved John Coffey (I read the book in those installments, cried over everyone of them)

         I was on a roll, but now my mind is blank. That might be a good thing. What movies get to you? What about books or stories, especially anything here on WDC. Ones that come to mind:

1. "Unicorns and Redemption VERY Highly recommended

2. "Empty Vessel This one blew me away when I first read it. It still does today.

3. "Starship SentryThis one does not hit you emotionally, but the ending is definitely a surprise. One of the best stories I've read here on WDC is now Pass-Key protected, so I can't link it. I can tell you it's name if you want to ask for access. I guarantee you that you will love this story. Crooked Creek. It is worth your time.

         I cry over several of my stories and poems, and cannot believe I wrote them. But I did... I've taken enough of your time and attention, enjoy any of these if you choose to watch or read them.

You picked BT's best song. It is a song about writing songs, and shows how clever some lyricists can be. Thanks for sharing this magnificent track.

         Not that I forgot, but thank you to everyone who sent me Birthday wishes on Friday. Wow, I was overwhelmed by it all. Thank you again!

{indentI spent the weekend with my ex Father-In-Law. A lot of you might wonder why I'd drive 4 hours to visit my ex-wife's father, so here's the scoop. He and I were on the USS Theodore Roosevelt SSBN 600 (G) together for 2-years. That's how I met his daughter. We will always be friends, no matter what. Imagine my surprise when I got there, and found he doesn't have Wi-Fi, only one Ethernet cable. Besides, I didn't want to be rude and get on line while there, so I was here only on my phone. That's why I didn't post in "Smile! (Groan?) You Know You Love These! last night. You know I will tonight, after I return from dinner. Happy Mothers' Day to everyone that this greeting means something to, I really hope you've been spoiled today.
