JAN 1, 15 .. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015 TO YOU AND TO YOURS ..

Now THIS is dangerous.

IF you build it .. THEY will come .. The 1989 Movie .. Field of Dreams ..

IF I begin a Post .. history says that a Post will indeed happen ..

I have no idea of what will come next here except I just want to wish all of you a ..

HAPPY JOYOUS BLESSED SOBER NEW YEAR 2015 !

This is why I have two websites. Here on Dot Net I can just get down and scrimmage.

All of these ‘themes’ in my head.  HAPPINESS IS .. FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH .. A LITTLE OF THIS AND THAT .. A NICE THOUGHT .. A LITTLE CHIT-CHAT .. THE DINKEY BIRD .. DRAMA .. INTENSE .. LOVE .. ON THE ROAD .. YOU ASKED THE QUESTION .. GOD .. THEOLOGY .. KEEP CALM AND SAUNTER ON .. and others ..
Let’s go with DRAMA and see what happens ..
DSCN8887[1]
HIGH DRAMA IS: What happens when a Chinese Friend or even an Ex-Patriot here finds out what I am eating here in Hong Kong .. what I am basically living on!
DSCN9202[1]
They scream .. “OH NO CAP! LORD GOD CAP NOT THOSE CAP! INSTANT NOODLES WILL KILL YOU CAP!” as they fall to the ground and roll-up-into a FETAL position and begin to quietly rock back and forth!
Well guys I AM eating other things! I am not just eating the Instant Noodles all by their lonesome selves! I DO have Chinese Peanut Butter after all!
DSCN7895[1]
I really am eating something other than INSTANT NOODLES! Below you see ‘ZILLA’S contribution to my food plan here in Hong Kong of one of HIS major food groups.
DSCN9210[1]
“What’s that ‘ZILLA? You do not have your reading glasses with you?” .. What can I say ‘ZILLA?  O.K. my friend .. below is a close-up look of one of your food groups that you suggested to me some number of years ago!
DSCN9212[1]
THE REST OF THIS STORY. ‘ZILLA is diabetic and as such risks serious complications IF his blood sugar crashes.  So ‘ZILLA told me some many years ago that he carries with him mini-SNICKERS-bars just in case he gets into low blood-sugar trouble. SO I figured that IF ‘ZILLA is O.K. with mini-SNICKERS-bars THEN SO TOO AM I!
Back to some mischief .. I also eat other food groups.

We are just going to wait-you-out Captain until you finally fess-up and show us the ol’ you-know-what Captain!
DSCN9175[1]
I wonder .. I really and I truly wonder .. IF any of you truly realize how much fun I am having here in Hong Kong! Just study and just ponder for-a-moment the above sign!
DSCN9176[1]
On the left margin of the above photo is the sign above the photo above. The sign is immediately underneath a VERY FORMAL governmental decree licensing the restaurant as to what they may serve.
Are you kidding me! I had to make-a-deal with the young man above .. he would NOT move away from the sign he was blocking so I said .. “OK I will take YOUR photographs AFTER I photograph your sign.” Deal is a deal.
What is it about me that draws to me such characters! Do I seem playful or what! First HE risks me dismissing him out-of-hand! Me I risk nothing ..
DSCN9175[1]
I think that maybe .. just possibly maybe .. his restaurant IS THE ONE ..

THAT JUST POSSIBLY DAY-IN AND DAY-OUT .. SERVES THE VERY BEST OF THE BEST ..
DSCN9177[1]
SINGAPORE RICE NOODLES !

“Ah-h-h-h CAPTAIN .. we are not absolutely positive that Singapore Rice Noodles are at the top of the list of HEALTHY FOODS CAPTAIN!”
In closing it has been FOREVER since I have posted my favorite childhood poem .. THE DINKEY BIRD ..
N an ocean, ‘way out yonder,
(As all sapient people know)
Is the land of Wonder-Wander,
Whither children love to go;
It’s their playing, romping, swinging,
That give great joy to me
While the Dinkey-Bird goes singing
In the amfalula tree!
 
There the gum-drops grow like cherries,
And taffy’s thick as peas–
Caramels you pick like berries
When, and where, and how you please;
Big red sugar-plums are clinging
To the cliffs beside that sea
Where the Dinkey-Bird is singing
In the amfalula tree!
 
So when children shout and scamper
And make merry all the day,
When there’s naught to put a damper
To the ardor of their play;
When I hear their laughter ringing,
Then I’m sure as sure can be
That the Dinkey-Bird is singing
In the amfalula tree!
 
For the Dinkey-Bird’s bravuras
And staccatos are so sweet–
His roulades, appoggiaturas,
And robustos so complete,
That the youth of every nation–
Be they near or far away–
Have especial delectation
In that gladsome roundelay.
 
Their eyes grow bright and brighter,
Their lungs begin to crow,
Their hearts get light and lighter,
And their cheeks are all aglow;
For an echo cometh bringing
The news to all and me,
That the Dinkey-Bird is singing
In the amfalula tree.
 
I’m sure you like to go there
To see your feathered friend–
And so many goodies grow there
You would like to comprehend!
Speed, little dreams, your winging
To that land across the sea
Where the Dinkey-Bird is singing
In the amfalula tree!
SO MUCH JOY WE WISH FOR YOU ALL IN 2015 !

Patti and Cap..

    I can easily realize that you are delirious with joy in Hong Kong. I had to laugh at your jar of peanut butter. I’ve noticed it often on your recent posts, but I have to tell you today that we go through a lot of peanut butter. It all began with Lon. And he passed his love on to me. Whenever we have bread or rolls on the table, you’ll find the peanut jar right there too. For instance, with our spaghetti this evening, we had French bread with peanut butter spread across each slice.

    I always enjoy the Dinkey bird story.

    Smiles back,

      SO GREAT TO VISIT by telephone Shaddy. I hope dinner did not burn! I have read that actually Peanut Butter is a pretty good food overall. So good for LON!

      I grew up .. to a certain age saying .. “Mommy please read the Dinkey Bird Story to me!” .. Often when she would finish I would plead .. “Mommy will you read it again!” So nice you like it.

      Smiles .. Cap in Hong Kong ..
