    Wing Man

    So... there's a bar in Buffalo, NY named "The Anchor Bar" and they're renowned for their chicken wings. The Spouse and I both love it. It's low-rent and the portions are the size of Quebec. As are most of the patrons. <<sucks in gut>> I thought I'd twist it around and try an "Anchor Bar Pizza":

    A resounding success as evidenced by the silence at the trough.

    One wrench though... I've mentioned "dough in Aruba" a few times. I switched all-purpose flours from "Robin Hood" to "Gold Medal" and learned a lot about not screwing with variables. The dough turned out way too pliable and had to be handled very gently. Lesson learned: don't mess with perfection. But it still turned out well regardless of how tricky the journey was.

    VSS Countdown Continues. Apparently we're at 70%ish immunity right now from the first dose. And the microchip is doing well even though the divorce is trying for our overlord.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that called "slave labour"?

    The Spouse isn't a fan. Sigh. Don't ask.

    You're my food photography muse, Peg! I think I've taken pictures of food (much to the staring amusement of Arubans) a few times over the years specifically because you mentioned it.

    The Rain Man Cometh

    Yesterday, the Dutch Neighbour (who works in media at Fresh FM - 104.5) sent us a weather alert that the clouds were going to open up and hellfire was going to rain down on our sinning souls. That or it was going to rain.

    So I schlepped out for my morning constitutional to the lighthouse: beautiful skies, some sort of triathlon at Catalina but nothing onerous on the road. As I'm heading back, I go through the back entrance at Gold Coast and the sky starts to turn a sinister black and I think, "Uh-oh... better put it in high gear, Fat Boy!" So I run back to the house (about fifteen-twenty minutes) and one drop hits me on the head as I'm going to the front door and then the heavens unleash.

    The moral of the story is that Mother Earth will let you exercise but you better put some effort into it....

    This week, we're into the three week mark after our first shot. Hoping we get the magic email telling us to come in at will for the second. We're currently booked for May 26 and 27 but they've been moving everybody up in the queue. Fingers crossed.

    hey act/Stephen.......you have been on island now for about 5 or 6 months.
    how does Canada/Aruba handle your extended stay?
    did you have to go to immigration to sate your case about being here for a really extended time?
    I had a conversation with a lady in the ocean yesterday that insists after 180 days the Canadians have to leave if they do not hold residency here.
    I told her that I believed that in these tough covid times that hitting the road for Canada or wherever home base may be, is not all that black and white.
