Larry Wilson

  Larry Wilson tries to corral the John Boy & Billy Big Show from 6am to 10am in the mornings, then gently rocks you to sleep at night from 6pm to midnight.  Did we say gently?  Yeah... right!  And check out Larry's sarcastic view on the world and his desires to "thin the herd" on his blog!

A Brave New World

Have you noticed how weird the weather seems today? I think I know why.  In fact I think I am the reason.

Over the weekend, I did what rarely happens with a man my age. I tried something different.  In fact I tried TWO new things.  I know, I know, some of you are woozy at the mere thought of a  cranky old SOB like me opening up and trying something outside of my comfort zone. surprise
My wife, amazing cook that she is, has never been able to get me to try spinach. NEVER....well until Saturday that is.  She decided to make a spinach salad....with bacon....and bacon grease.....and hard boiled eggs...and an odd sounding dressing.  On a whim I tried it. 

Now I admit I was pretty tired from the last few days of remotes at Mac's and Harley of Greenville, so maybe that had something to do with my questionable judgment.  The fact is, I really enjoyed it.  Me....spinach,
who would have thought?

Sunday after church she picked up an eggplant.  One of the oddest looking things I've ever seen.  (Just like Aunt Margo's ass, odd looking and unappealing.)  She said she was making fritters. Eggplant fritters.  I'm serious.....eggplant fritters.  After much effort and energy, frying and popping, I was offered one.  Actually, it was only part of a fritter. An eggplant fritter.  I tried it. It was actually very good.  So good in fact that I had 3 with lunch.  No one is more surprised than me.

So while you have moved around today in and out of showers, the occasional claps of thunder, and a temperature more suited to late March versus mid September, you can thank / blame me.  Better yet, blame the wife.  If she wasn't such a fine cook, you and I wouldn't have to contend with all this odd weather, and new foods.  It's not easy being me.
