My friend Jimmy was playing old sad love songs from his country music collection today — his “Massive” collection, I should say and as I was listening, my mind went back to days gone by and I started thinking about my wife and my parents … and my dog … and all the good times that will never be again … and I got very sad and began to silently cry. I had to wait until the tears stopped flowing before I could administer my glaucoma drops. Can you say, “Pity Party?” I guess that despite all my exterior bravado, I am still a kind of wimp after all .. because men are not supposed to cry, are they?
We had macaroni with hamburger and spaghetti sauce for lunch today … (“Johnny Marzetti”) and it was delicious. Marzetti and toasted Italian bread. Yummy!
I discovered something called the “Blue Zone” diet today …. a diet that is supposed to help people live to be a Hundred years old ….I looked into it … I am not sure I could stomach that diet on a daily basis … It is all about grains and fruits and vegetables and tofu and all that kind of stuff that makes up a lot of other eccentric diets … diets like the Mediterranean diet … and a few others. I guess that I am going to remain a traditional American diet lover for the rest of my 120 years. (The Bible says that Humans are designed to live to be at least 120 years old.).
But if you would like to check the “Blue Zone” diet out for yourself, here is a link you might find interesting: https://www.everydayhealth.com/diet-nutrition/a-complete-blue-zones-diet-food-list-and-meal-plan/
About now I am starting to think about some good old country biscuits and sausage gravy with fried potatoes on the side.
