Sorry if I'm not really food savvy but eat HORSE? No way pal. Not eating horse. Nor would I eat cat but I've probably had that before, unknowingly (sorry Chinese take out). Now some things I would definately eat more than once like, Eggs Benedict. I'd eat the HELL out of some Eggs Benedict. I need to do that like George Michael needs to get caught "walking in the park" again at three A.M. though.

Speaking of food makes me think of my son. We call him "Hoover" for short. School started Tuesday and now the house is vacant again and there's more food in the fridge now too.

My big guy. Holy shit time has flown. I was talking to a lady at the grocery store the other day (I'll blab to anyone) and she was itching to get off of work to see her grandson after his first day of Kindergarten. What does that do? Set me off on memeory lane and wistful images of my boy starting Kindergarten. So long ago now. Now he's grown and knows everything. I'm not kidding, everything. At least he thinks so.
