I've been seeing all these blogs about butter. I am sorry. I can't resist. But, the butter enters my story much later. I also suppose it may not really contribute much to the story (but it DID make the meal) and it's a true story. Sometimes I like to think
about things "cosmically" and this just happened during this butter blog phase. I'm "of an age" that provides a lot of "life experience". But, these days life experience changes so rapidly!! My kids couldn't imagine "life" without a television. I'm sure they
think TV must have come about the same time as electricity so I must be really OLD. LOL!!! And then you have TV gadgets (theater systems, movie players, cable boxes) not to mention computers and cell phones and texting.
"Texting" has to be a new verb in the dictionary.
So, I confess. . .I struggle to keep up with current life experience (and music) That includes knowing how to instinctively set up and operate all of these devises. My neighbors are of nearly my age. We text each other. We do this because we have kids
who are all about texting. Also, it amuses us. I'd like to share.
DNH dear neighbor husband
DNW dear neighbor wife.
I text them both but DNH does alot of cooking.
DNH: do you have power yet?
ME: Nope. I went out and caught them tracking it down.
ME: Reading a Dean Koontz book by flashlight.
DNH: LOL keep me posted.
ME: You have power. I still don't and neither do the neighbors behind me
DNH: thanks. good luck.
ME: Haha thanks. I'm sort of worried what it means?
ME: I have learned what it means. It's probably a bad transformer. Two hour fix or so
ME: It would still be quiet if not for the truck and the dog
DNH: not a good combination
ME: No and I can only encourage the dog to shut up. Nothing I can do about the truck or the man voices out there.
DNH: we have beer.
ME: Thanks, raincheck?
ME: I have choc chip cinnamon rolls to share. . .how many of you are there?
DNH: would you have an extra packet of onion soup mix.
ME: You can make that stuff. 2 1/2 T. dried minced onion, 4 beef bouillon cubes, crumbled. 1 tsp onion powder 1/8 tsp. pepper. . .salt to taste equals 1 pck. salt depends on how salty the bouillon is.
Same thing. Much cheaper.
DNH: thanks for the good advice!
DNH: this is embarrassing. got any butter?
ME: :) Yep have lots of butter
DNH: you r a lifesaver
ME: you sending a boy over? It's raining.
DNH: butter makes the meal. thanks!
ME: butter is sexy
DNH: dang right Paula :)
ME: I just watched a doc called "How Beer Saved The World" now I want to make beer.
DNH: great show. we watched it. you make it. i will drink it.
ME: Did your power just go out?
DNH: yes. r u calling?
ME: I did. Candles lit.
Pretty funny. Except when the power went out it killed my mouse so I couldn't use my computer for a few days. . .you would not believe how much you can get done when your computer is inoperable.
So, when you add the electrical outage quirk, you can see how this true story would lend itself to some cosmic pondering.
