I learned that the wife of one of the guys I followed way back in the way back died. The American Grouch’s Wife passed. Death is not everywhere. But it’s lurking around the corner.

Who are you– or I– to judge?

I’m in a hotel on the Gulf sorta watching the Texas v. Iowa State game and recovering from an Wintzell’s oyster food coma. I just came across this, via Instapundit: So maybe the world isn’t going to hell afterall. ? I remain– on my good days– optimistic. Sort of. The oysters were great!

I did a test.

I wanted to post a link to a cookbook. That’s all I wanted to do. And so, that’s it for me. I’m done with it. See ya.
