Many Fine Mornings

Many Fine Mornings Have Started This Way
Many Fine Mornings Have Started This Way

I’m proud to say that many fine mornings have started this way for me, mostly in the Spring and Fall months when the weather calls to me to start the day with coffee over a fire.

A Solid, Country Breakfast
A Solid, Country Breakfast Is The Right Choice

And then, once my blood stream has been returned to its properly caffeinated state, I and my family like a hearty, country style breakfast cooked over and eaten around that same fire.

And yes, even though I and my family live in Brooklyn, this is a common breakfast scenario for us. I’ve got a good-sized grill/offset smoker out front and a smaller pit grill in our rear court. Both charcoal, not freaking gas or those pellet things. Proper charcoal as the God(s) intended. πŸ˜‰

It’s all part of being who you are and doing what you love, irrespective of where you find yourself at any given time.

Set An Extra Place

Set an extra place at the table this memorial day

Well, it’s Memorial Day once, though most people seem to confuse it with Veterans Day these days.

So please, do enjoy your BBQ – I will – because it’s the right thing to do. It’s good to celebrate the life, freedom, and prosperity that those rough men and women died to protect.

But maybe, just maybe, you might want to set an extra place at the table for their shades. They did, after all, pay for that fine meal.

That’s all. Just a thought that maybe you might want to spare a thought and a little table space for our fallen soldiers and the ones they left behind.

Here, Be Offended

Sometimes – a lot of times these days – you find an image on the web that resonates with you but that you just know will offended many others. The image below, as I recently discovered, is one such and one that will apparently “trigger” some people.

Here, be offended. You know you crave itHere, Be Offended

And no, that not me and that’s not one of my wives. It could as well be though and that seems to be offensive to certain sorts, though not the ones that might first come to mind.

Yes, a female – an oh-so-lily-White Feminist and Liberal – actually was offended by my being with a Black woman. According to her, White men shouldn’t date or marry Black women because we’re at the “top rung of the Patriarchy” and the “inherent power dynamic” of such a relationship was wrong, sexist, and racist. 😯

As you might guess, I was rather shocked and a bit offended myself. One, few people, with the exceptions of my wives, will call me out on anything, especially my choices of mates and/or lifestyle. Two, the very idea that a Black woman couldn’t be an equal – perhaps even dominant – partner in a relationship with a White man was something I was shocked to hear voiced in this day and age.

Truly though, as I look at it more, I shouldn’t have been shocked at all. Feminists are some of the worst sorts of sexual perverts and this female did was voice of racially tinged version of that perversion.

I’m Missing Asia

My life has been such that I have traveled the world – though, oddly, I’ve spent very little time in Europe – and have lived for somewhat extended periods in many countries and on every continent except Antartica (I turned down the job). Of them all I’m missing Asia the most right now.

I’m Missing Asia

I think it’s safe to assume, given the 15 examples I’ve provided above, you can see and understand why I’m missing Asia. Very few men who have experienced the beauty and bounty of Asia fail to miss it when they’ve left.
