Day 34 (399) – February 3, 2019
It’s Super Bowl Sunday and for those of you not from the states I was always curious if it is a big deal outside the states. Because I played football on a pitch and on a gridiron, I have a great appreciation for the game, either one. Even though my team isn’t playing, and I think both teams playing probably really shouldn’t be, any excuse for me to make junk food (appetizers) for dinner is worth watching. And although there is a lot of hype and gimmicks leading up to the game, in hindsight perhaps a little too much, the earlier the pageantry starts, the more “snacks” I get to go through. So I am going to post this early and keep it short because I have potato skins to fill. This morning, on the way to breakfast, the sounds of the siren call was blaring. When I get to the diner, the trucks were pulling out. When I left the diner, they were returning, backing up, into the garage. This truck is huge. I watched in amazement as the driver navigated the turn and the tight spaces like a mouse in a maze who knows exactly where the cheese is. It really was something to see. I only wish that the photo was taken at night. Which is why there is one more shot below. This one is actually from Friday night. When I let Anastasia in, I noticed sparkles all over the deck. It looked like a diamond mine. I did my best to capture it. All the little bright spots are snow crystals, not a problem with my camera 😛Off I go, got some chicken that needs cooking for the nachos.
