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.

.

The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … Relaxing Lunch …

Relaxing Lunch

Side salad fixin’s. Fresh Lettuce, Cucumber, Tomato, Sweet Onion, Radishes, and Celery were chopped into a medium salad. Salt, boiled Egg Wedges, and Lite Sweet Vidalia Onion Dressing were added last.

An Onion Bun was buttered and pan toasted. The warm bun was given a covering of Miracle Whip, Swiss Cheese and Fresh Lettuce.

Layers of thin Ham are then added along with Bread & Butter Chips and Tomato slices.

Plated. A round toothpick with an Olive on top kept the divided sandwich sections from falling apart. A perfect combination of side salad and Ham & Cheese sandwich made for a nice relaxing lunch.

The Old Guy … Gentle On The Heart …

Gentle On The Heart

.

This new day,

A day of promise.

The warmth of the sunshine,

Makes the heart smile,

Deep inside … where memories rest.

.

That touch of comforting light,

On this restless soul,

Tasks one to sing with the wind,

And times long ago,

Finally rest gentle within.

.

I remain this day the sum of my passions.

Yesterday and today,

Walk together,

Speak of shared memories and hope,

Of mercy, grace and peace unbound.

.

The Old Guy … Images of Russell County … Reluctant Portrait …

Cousin Gene is in town and I thought an updated portrait was in order. Unfortunately at the diner, he was less than accommodating. 

So … catching him by surprise wasn’t working despite several tricks of the trade including, feigning a lack of interest and getting off a quick shot, sneaking up slowly with a quick point and shoot and of course shooting in the area of the subject from the table top while looking away from the subject. He was wise to them all.

Acting like I was making intricate camera light and shutter speed adjustments didn’t work either.

Almost … but last second awkward, but quick movements spoiled the shot.

Close but no Kewpiei Doll … 

An Unguarded moment … The Unauthorized Portrait …

The Old Guy … Doodly-squat …


Doodly-squat

.

I have done doodly-squat,

And I do not intend to do doodly-squat.

I have no desire to do anything but doodly-squat,

My deepest inclination is towards doodly-squat.

.

I stumble through life and promise doodly-squat,

I am a practitioner extraordinaire of doodly-squat,

Because my mind excels in doodly-squat.

My speech is punctuated by doodly-squat.

.

I have taught my cat doodly-squat,

And tomorrow I will produce doodly-squat.

Today my smile reveals doodly-squat,

Yep, a look into the mirror … doodly-squat.

The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … Pork Steak w/Gravy & Sweet Potatoes …

enter stuff three

Peeled and quartered Sweet Potatoes are slow boiled until tender. They are then transferred into a baking dish for final oven cooking.

The sow boiled Sweet Potatoes are covered with Cinnamon Sugar and butter and baked for two hours at three hundred fifty degrees. I reduced the heat to two hundred fifty degrees an hour before serving. This kept the dish at a good serving temperature.

A nice cut of Pork Steak is flour dusted and pan fried. Length of cooking time depends on thickness.

Assembly … Fresh Sweet Corn buttered w/salt & pepper w/Buttered Slow Baked Sweet Potatoes

With or Without Gravy. Pan Fried Pork Steak is hard to turn down.

Plated the way I like it. Pan Fried Pork Steak w/Homemade Gravy, Baked Sweet Potatoes w/Real Butter and Cinnamon Sugar and Fresh Corn-on-the-cob.

Words don’t due justice to how good this meal tastes. Tender Pork Steak and Sweet Potatoes work together splendidly. The Sweet Corn was tender and memorable. All-in-All a grand meal soon to be repeated.
