T'was the night before lobstering

Photo: Corinne d'Eon
T'was the night before lobstering and all through the district,
not a boat was moving as the rules they restrict it.
The boats are piled high with crustacean traps,
all's quiet except for the waves as they slap.
Oil gear is ready, bait bags are filled,
Lunchboxes will be jammed full & coffee will be spilled.
The men are on edge and the women are wishin',
that the good weather holds and the boys can go fishin'.
At first light tomorrow they'll steam from the docks,
go drop those traps amongst the seaweed & rocks.
The radio will come alive with all sorts of chatter,
some of it serious, some stuff that doesn't matter.
They'll laugh and they'll joke & they'll start talking trash,
boasting to see who'll haul in the most cash.
At the end of the day they'll steam for homeport,
unwind, grub up and give wifey the report.
Next day they'll get up and head out once more,
Such is life of the lobstermen who fish our beautiful shore

Fruitcake. The Holiday "F" word

More people like fruitcake than I anticipated. 48% love it ! And here I assumed there was about 20 fruitcakes in the entire world, and they just kept getting circulated from owner to owner.
I have ate some before, and the light coloured one, without nuts, seems ok.
But I voted " frightened of it" .
And 37% hate it ! So the ones who are scared of it, and the haters, equal 52% !

Monday's Sexual Post

The simple purpose of a cock ring is to trap blood inside the penis so you can maintain an erection, or have even a bigger erection. They do not prevent premature ejaculation.
 There are many cock rings. Most are made of a rubbery material and fits at the base of the penis. There are metal ones, which you put each testicle through, carefully, and then penis, while it's flaccid. Users beware that any pain, discomfort, or feeling of coldness in your genitals means it's time to take it off. And there are oodles of warnings about putting your penis into any ring. Once it's erect you can be in big sore trouble.
Avoid heavy weighted cock rings, and use ones that could be cut with scissors if needed.
Use for no longer than 30 minutes at a time.
There are many varitiies of cock rings. Some even vibrate and bring her pleasure !

Spare Ribs vs Back Ribs


Back ribs, sometime called loin ribs, or Baby Back Ribs, come from the top back of the rib cage, where the bones are short and meaty. Referring to baby, doesn't mean the animal was young. It means the ribs are short.
Spare ribs come from the belly side, and have more fat. Here the meat is “spare”, or scarce.
Montanas, in my opinion have the best ribs. The ones in apple butter BBQ are my favorite !

Appetizer Calculation

Ever wonder " How many appetizers do I need?"
If it's "appetizers only", you need 8 per person for the first hour.
And you can count on 4 to 6 per person for the rest of night.
So if you are twelve:  12 times 8 = 96
and another 40 for the rest of the night (8  x 5). Total needed: 136 appetizers.
Sounds like a lot? Not really.
It's only 5.5 trays of 24 hors d'oeuvres.

Hors d'oevres before a meal:  Just 3 to 4 per person.

Table setting Rule # 1

I don't know why this picture reminds me of the "Whitehouse."
I think the girls there had opened the same package of napkins for some reason or other.

A grade A performance

The door sings open after school and my sons come tumbling in. Son #2 is yelling "Mame !"
He's excited and all aglow !
He comes to the living room where we are relaxing, watching TV.
"Told you Mame ! Who was going to do better this year ? ME ! I got my report card, and I have nothing under a 90 !!"
Well this surprizing news deserves a high five, and he gets it from me, and a "'bout time!" from his father.
The emotions don't last long ...  " Ah really, nothing lower than a 74!" , he announces as he turns around and heads out the room.

When will I ever learn !

Monday's Sexual Post? Nope

My birthday suit, eh? The masseuse was thinking todays post should be about my birthday suit.
Well it is my birthday.
I am finally 49.
I, who usually cannot embrace the growing number, has embraced turning 49.
I hated being 48.
It has to do with my late brother, who died at 48.
Being 48 was a constant pain in the heart. Remembering him, and knowing he left us way too soon.
I feared I would somehow not live to see 49. But I did !
I wore my birthday suit today, despite a few wrinkles, and a couple stitch marks.
It's the only one I got.
I wore it proudly, and enjoyed it.
I even had help cleaning it ! (wink, wink)
