Well Captain .. At your age we understand a little-slip-of-your memory!

BUT .. Did you also forget about ..

JUST LOOK CAPTAIN! They continue to remodel at ОЛОН ОРНЫ ХООЛ !

Will you just look at all of the new and plush and very fancy ‘booths’ along the West wall!
DSCN8252[1]They used to have tables and chairs along the West wall ..DSCN9993[1]

Will you just look at the new ‘booths’ DSCN8251[1]

How about the remodeling at the North end of ОЛОН ОРНЫ ХООЛ !
DSCN9990[1]It used to look like the above and below photos show. A small private dining room.

One night a work crew was just ‘attacking’ this room.
DSCN0052[1]
DSCN0045[1]The work crew installed a ‘divider partition’ to enclose this area. They made a room-within-a-room.
DSCN0070[1]OK .. I am not sure exactly what they gained in this process except a little privacy. On the right is the path to the ‘necessary room’.
DSCN0069[1]Then the work crew removed the front divider partition you see above ..

And? They put a ‘booth’ in this area ..DSCN8253[1]‘Zilla! Some contractor must be going just a ‘tad nuts’ I imagine. “What exactly do you want to end up with here ОЛОН ОРНЫ ХООЛ?
DSCN8256[1]

They re-modeled the ‘necessary room’ up the hall and to the left from the above ‘new’ dining area.

“CAN you imagine that Kanbaatar! They have a nice place ‘to GO’. It is inside where it is warm and cozy. Now they are complaining about NOT having a seat on the ‘sitter’!” ..

“Kanbaatar what am I going to do with these young Mongolians!”

“Kanbaatar will you hand me one of your friend ‘Zilla’s Snickers’ Bars. I am suddenly hungry!”DSCN3794[1]

Where was I ? When Chinggis comes roaring in here I get all shook-up !  Got it !

“You did what!”

“As if one wasn’t bad enough for you Kanbaatar you actually found another one?”

“Cap?” .. “Yes Dr. Ed 02476?” .. “I lost the link you sent me for the poem The Dinkey Bird.”

Here are .. In Patti’s own words .. What she recalls my psychiatrist Dr. Herb Peterson said to her back in early 1997 .. When he called Patti to tell her he was retiring from his medical practice:

As I recall, Dr. Herb said …

“It sounds like Cap is having an absolutely great time traveling. He is having far more fun than I am. He has inspired me to retire, so I am … retiring! I want to have fun too!!”

I encouraged Dr. Herb to get on with it …

Smiles and hugs and a lot of love.

Patti

Smiles and hugs and a lot of love to you all!

      WOW. So nice to see you are well enough to check in here Karolynn. I have missed you keeping track of our doings here. Thanks so much. Just thinking about one I am salivating. Much Joy ..

    Your penance for eating Nastyburgers is to eat JUST ONCE at Millie’s Cafe and then report back to me. Customers rave about it on Trip Advisor. Famous for homemade soups, burgers, Philly cheese sandwiches, fries, and chocolate cake–and on and on. Couldn’t find an exact address but my impression is it’s near the Blue Sky bldg. Lonely Planet has a section on it, and it is reported to be a favorite of ex-pats in UB. SO, next time you want American food, skip the garbage and go to Millie’s. Please.

      Why THANK YOU SO MUCH Gullible. THIS I WILL DO. I will then put up a Post for all to see. I just telephoned them at .. 1133 0338. They answered. The man spoke a little English. They are North from the Blue Sky Hotel and Tower up past Chinggis Khaan Square on the road the Post Office is next to. This I can .. This I WILL DO ..

      How much fun is this I ask. Wow .. Such Joy ..

    After reading this blog post, I’m ordering burgers from a restaurant in downtown Beloit to be delivered at our home. I believe I would have headed to a Burger King for one of their burgers if we weren’t waiting for a repairman to come to fix our telephone.

    Sometimes, something evil can be sooooo heavenly.

    We just returned from our vacation on Siesta Key so of course I’m busy unpacking and so on and can’t make time to prepare a meal.

    Thanks for steering me to hamburgers, Cap!!!!

    1. Cap Chastain Post author

      Too funny me steering you to a hamburger. I must admit these Whoppers sure tasted very good and both were oh so satisfying. I hope your two weeks in Florida were rewarding and you did a lot of the beautiful coloring you are doing. I assume you have eaten burgers at the restaurant from which you are ordering them. Enjoy ..
