The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … Noodles & Shrimp …

Dinner Is Served

Simple menu with Rice Noodles cooked in boiling Onion soup. Don’t over cook the delicate noodles or they will become soft and fall apart. A little under cooked works well because the noodles will continue to cook in the serving bowl while the rest of the dish is being put together..

I used Jumbo Raw Shrimp instead of precooked Shrimp because I wanted to carefully cook the delectable morsels. Overcooked seafood is not good. The Shrimp were thawed in cold water, carefully pealed and then cooked in a combination of fresh minced Garlic and real Butter. Additional seasoning should be added as required for personal preferences.

Plated … This dinner was better than it looks. Prepared easily and in a timely manner this recipe is a keeper and can be modified to accommodate Chicken, Pork. or Veggies. The Onion Soup has a nice presence and works so much better than Chicken stock. As an added hint, the bundle of Rice Noodles should be broken in half. Shorter noodles to make eating this dish easier.

The Old Guy … Sailor Man …


Sailor Man

.

I was once a sailor man,

Young and proud.

With no fear of a restless sea,

On many a menacing day or night,

Steadfastly turned to face an ominous wind.

.

High seas,

Pitch and roll,

Relentless and unforgiving.

Life and death below,

Forever dark and deep,

Waiting and hauntingly vigilant.

.

War and peril,

Were shadows that threatened,

From a distant horizon.

Oh restless waves I prayed,

Have mercy on the young and proud.

.

I was once a sailor man so many years ago,

Filled with youth, spirit and fire.

And on a lonely sea,

Deep into an endless night,

Too much time to think of what could be.

The Old Guy … Old Man …


Old Man

.

Old man sitting alone in the dark.

What was just yesterday,

Now a long distant memory.

Oh, the past lurks behind all of us.

.

In silence, rocking endlessly,

Without direction,

Without purposeful intent,

Without a breath of protest.

.

Old man sitting in the dark,

Watching the parade,

Of unrealized hopes, denied ambitions,

Of dreams that withered and died.

.

The darkness hides so much,

And can be a Master speaking softly.

But the light of day still whispers promised truth,

To an old man sitting alone in the dark.

The Old Guy … Thinking Of You …

Thinking Of You

.

Today I woke thinking of you,

Wanting to hold you close,

Feel your smoldering warmth against me,

Wanting to never let you go.

.

Close, ever closer,

I want to share your mysteries,

Your loves and passions.

To be a part of your day …

To be a part of you.

.

In the low light,

Your beauty is beyond my words.

I feel your heart racing.

And I am silent in the moment,

Overwhelmed.

.

This early morning full of hope,

I celebrate our shared smiles,

Your tender touch,

Soft spoken words of passion,

And whispered … delicate promises.

The Old Guy … Celebrating Afternoon Pie …

In our group of friends and relatives … the term ‘Pie’ means it’s time for dessert. This would be with or without ice cream. 

Unauthorized Cousin Gene … exhibiting a familiar pattern of avoiding authorized photographs. This avoidance behavior seemed to have invaded the afternoon Pie ritual.

Cousin Gene’s sweetheart … Unauthorized Ms Kathy …

The Old Guy joining the epidemic. 

Finished (my part at least) … A perfect end to a memorable treat. The tea was excellent also.

The Old Guy … Who Knows …


Who Knows

.

Who knows what lies behind,

A woman’s eyes.

What unspoken mysteries,

And intrigues,

Just behind sultry lips.

.

What can a soft touch tell,

Of the possibilities,

Romance or adventure.

And delicate whispered words,

Ride gently on a hope or promise.

.

Who knows what lies behind,

A woman’s eyes.

Whispered words,

From shadowed smile,

Speaks of things that make the heart race.

.

Come to me my love,

Touch my heart,

With your loving spirit,

Make me whole,

And alive again.

.

In the shadows and soft moonlight,

Passion burns deep within,

From tender embrace,

And soft hands moving slowly,

Closed eyes are knowing.

.
