Hey, Vision! Doing fine here. We’ve had great weather, too, just pretty warm, though.

How’ve you been?

I had a great week. Only worked a few days, didn’t get to barbecue as much because the weather seemed a little iffy. But overall just been nice, relaxing, great weather. Did you have a nice Independence Day ?

We both had to work on July 4th, so we just did our usual evening. Keith grilled hamburgers and we listened to the “war zone” all around us, but we didn’t get to see any fireworks.

Hi, Gina. Right back at you. Just kicking back on a pleasant Sunday evening. Dinner’s in the oven, the wife is doing well, the cats are all agreeable, the wine is chilled, and the stars are all in their place in the heavens. Decent Gunsmoke rolling at the moment.

Tonight it’s cheddarwurst baked in a dish of scalloped potatoes with extra diced onion, Parmesan cheese, and cracked peppercorns. Dinner on the grill was Friday. Two obscenely priced New York Strip steaks. The price of beef is getting absurd.

Yes, beef price is nuts! It’s like the weirdo insane price of red, yellow and orange bell peppers. What the heck is with that?!

We just have chicken on the grill and a sausage to put on in a little while. I’ll have to whip up a side dish.

The green pepper I bought yesterday was just .88 cents, which is in the usual ballpark. We’re lucky my wife’s cousin owns a farm and her brother manages it, so we can get fresh veggies on the cheap. What blew my mind was when I looked at the price of cheese - I almost got the vapors and passed out. I’ve only been intermittently shopping this year due to my leg, and haven’t done my usual grocery runs, and the prices of so many items have gone completely ape since my last outing.

Same here. It’s been hovering around 90 here, but the humidity has been virtually nil. I was actually able to go outside yesterday and get some yardwork done for the first time this year. I’m paying for it today, but brother, did it ever feel good. I’m in my 50’s now, but I swear, if the Good Lord lets me live to be 300, I’ll still consider tending to my land a pure joy. Google ‘Callaway Gardens’. That’s the goal the missus and I are shooting for. Our own little piece of God’s gift.

Yes, cheese is freaky high, as are so many other food staples. I guess this is a result of the “necessarily skyrocketing” prices agenda of the commie bastards running our nation.

You know, they could have improved Sam Spade by giving the character more of Borgart’s style from the film.

Second on the Maltese Falcon. Bogart, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, Ward Bond. It’s tough to put together a better cast for a film noire detective movie.
