Frank says, Thanks for the birthday wishes ! His momma went into labor on April Fool’s Day and he fooled her by waiting till the next day to arrive. This morning, I swear I did not do this, but he had a trick played on him by his own self.  Or a very cognizant alarm clock.
He told me if I got up early we could have muffins at Coffee Call, a favorite place for those New Orleans Beignets and dark roast brew with chicory and sweet evaporated milk already mixed in.  Of course i agreed.  So he wakes me up, I glance at the clock in the living room and it says 5:30 AM.  (I had nothing to do with it, really really, really.)  OK, I think, he needs to be out of here early.  So I am up and dressed in a flash.  Driving to Coffee Call he says, is that time on the clock correct?  Yes, I say.  He says, how did I get here an hour earlier than I was supposed to?

Later at home he checks the clock and finds that he inadvertently pushed ( I swear I didn't play a trick on him!) the time zone button and it moved the alarm hour.  I swear, it wasn't me.

Don’t you love that opener? My girlfriends and I brainstormed about the various bottles that it could accommodate. Mostly what we came up with was related to beer……..this necessitates a trip to the liquor store.

  1. Sure, Glen - sure! I believe you. I was wondering how hard it would be to have a corkscrew installed on the barbeque. You could bend down, insert the cork onto the 'screwy' thing and then turn the bottle around and around. Hey, we could have something here.
