Thursday Thoughts

Bottoms Up
For me, a large portion of my enjoyment from food and drink is derived from how it looks. Drinking a martini out of a plastic cup simply wouldn’t do it for me. Since embarking on my whiskey drinking adventure, I have been dissatisfied with the glass in which I pour the drink. I want them to look like Frank Reagan on Blue Bloods. After all, it is because of him that I undertook this challenge. So I googled cut-glass rocks glasses. Much to my surprise and delight, what came up was an advertisement from Macy’s for Waterford Marquis rocks glasses that were on sale. It happened to be during Macy’s Friend and Family sale during which many items – including these glasses — were an additional 30 percent off. So I quickly ordered them and the grand total was $27 and some cents for four, plus shipping. They arrived yesterday, and my experience is now complete…..

Whatevah, They All Fly Around in the Air
Court showed me a photo of Cole wearing an astronaut’s costume that they own for some reason or another. Court suggested I ask Cole what he’s dressed as in the photo. I did so. Star Wars, he replied, referring to the Stormtroopers who worked for the Empire. I think he might have something there…..

When I’m 64 is Today
I was 14 years old when this tune was released on the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album in 1967. So I have been waiting 50 years for this song to really mean something to me…..

When I get older losing my hair
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I’d been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?

I could be handy, mending a fuse
When your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride.
Doing the garden, digging the weekds
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?

Send me a postcard, drop me a line
Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, wasting away
Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine forever more
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?

Today is my birthday, and I’m 64!
