Sunday Again (two weeks later)

Once again its Sunday, (seems sundays pop up on a regular basis----who knew?).  Today finds me spending time with my niece Tish in Irvine, Ca..  Today we went to lunch, and had a most delightful Chinese repast.  I opted to go with beef and vegaetables, and I believe Tish had the Schezan Beef.  Both dishes of course come with the obligatory rice, hot tea, and afterwards the dreaded fortune cookies.

After Lunch, Tish suggested we visit the Presidential Library for Richard Nixon, which is located only a few miles away, so off we went.  I found the LIbrary quite interesting, as it was a period of time when I was "into" politics, and the world scene.  Also next to the Library complex, actually a part of the complex, was Nixon's boyhood hoom, and we of course had to see that, but bye then we were getting tired, and would have had to wait some length of time til the next tour of the house was to be run, so we opted to call it a day, and came back here to Tish's place.  As I write this quick little post, SHE, (being the good lil niece that she is), is slaving out in the kitchen making me up a big batch of her excellent Tuna Salad to take home to Temecula, along with the loaf of bananna bread, and a container of grapeseed oil, which is suppose to be good for lowereing one;s chlorestorol.

During the last couple weeks, since I last posted, my Nephew Pete and I took a run up to Vegas, which I have not visted since 1996, ----the place sure has changed, but the games are the same-----I only lost about 400 bucks, but had a great time. (Pete won enough to break even after taking us out to a really fantastic great steak dinner, paid for the gas, and lunch on the drive back)  We more or less agreed we would have to do it again in about 3-4 monthes.   Driving up I learned it might be best for me to invest in an IPOD, as my new car had an IPOD jack in the sound system, and of course with an IPOD, one can collect thousands of songs.

Also during the last couple weeks, I have  become a Cosco Member, in that their store in Temecula is abour a block from my apartment complex, and they sell gas abourt as cheap there as anywhere in the general local, and offer good deals on fresh meats, as well as clothes and electronics-----hmmm bet I should shop there for that IPOD.

Okay thats it for now good people----I'm typing this on Tish's computer, and I believe she wants to do something on the Puter, so am signing off------see ya all around the blogosphere ------(lol)


  1. glad to hear from you again. good update. we'll see you again in a couple of weeks -- or surprise us and come back sooner. sounds like you've got some awfully nice relatives.

  2. It's nice to hear from you again. Sounds that you had great time here and there with your relatives. It is better than sitting at your computer, isn't it ? Wish you a nice week :o)

  3. It was good to hear from you. I hope all is well. I have missed seeing you lately. After next week things go back to normal for us.

  4. I was once again getting nervous. I'm so glad you are keeping busy, busy, busy with family. Sorry it was a bust in Vegas for you, but you said you had a good time, I believe you (even if you lost $400). I'll keep checking back with you for another post. You just keep on enjoying life (and all the good food that comes with it).

  5. Hey Gary ... so glad you and Pete had a good time in Vegas. I've never been there before ... and I hear it's great.

    Griffin is standing beside me right now watching the chicken dance on your blog. He thinks it's cute.

    Hope you have a great day!

  6. sweetums, going two weeks without posting tells me that you are having WAY too much fun. Blogging is just for us ol' stick-in-the-mud types.

  7. Hey Gary,
    Are you here ? what are you doing ? it sounds you left your screen and maybe you're bored with us, bloggers ?
    I only hope everything is ok for you. If yes, please say hello....

  8.'s been a while...did you get lost in Vegas? Miss hearing about you. I've moved to Floruba as Dana calls it. Hope all is well with you and you're just having such a good time you have no time to blog. (but please check in with us once in a while)


Speak up, don't be a nebish---your opinions do count.
