    Help Help I cannot stop laughing.

    Larry eating carrots and chickpeas. Now Bugs Bunny has grown a beard.

    Dont worry Larry the food should be real good. Them there middle eastern folk can also cook up some nice food. Ask the Lebanese folk for a potatoe pie. We used to call them Leb Pies in SA. Oh OH Oh they were unbelievable. That will get you back to at least one redneck and mens basic foodstuff I know and that is STARCH.

    I wont tease you with pictures of steak just mention that i aint having cereal for breakfast this morn. I is about to have nice Pork bacon, 2 eggs (ask them vegans if they can here them scream) poached, nice fried mushrooms, little fried tomatoe and some toast.

    I will think of you eating them there Humous for breakfast.
    cheers

    Oh man, a veggie breakfast???? That's cruel.
    Normally, I don't eat much breakfast but about once a month, I JUST GOTTA HAVE a full country plate, or two, full of eggs, bacon, sausage and heaps of biscuits and white sausage gravy. Guaranteed a pure artery clogger but makes up the difference in lifting the spirits.

    I can see it all in my mind's eye....

    Two or three years hence, Larry has gone and gotten a little older and mellower. His youngest has passed through her inevitable "macrame phase" and is looking to create something more elegant and permanent to leave behind. She invites her dad over for another weekend "bean breakfast", then pulls him aside and shows him the little (are you ready for it?) mini lathe that she's just broken in.

    "Dad, this little machine is great fun! Watch what I can do with it!"

    She cranks out a cool pen, and a small bowl for Larry to eat his next "bean breakfast" out of. Then, oh-so-innocently, she turns to Dad ... offers him a roughing gouge ... and says, "Would you like to try it? It's really easy, and I'll be right here to help."

    By this time Larry is so mellow, and his recent reflections on mortality so poignant, that the ribbings from his online gang are as nothing compared to his (youngest) daughter's gentle invitation - and the realization that he has let too many years pass by without making a single "spinny thing"....

    = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    Next thing you know, Larry is actually inviting himself over for bean breakfasts, to which he joyfully brings his (youngest)-daughter-made-bowl ... all so he can excuse himself afterwards and spend some quality time on the now-beautiful-to-him machine.

    Before long, his daughter will want to "go green" ... so she'll ask her dad to make her a spring pole unit, after which she'll gift the mini lathe to him for keeps.

    = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    Too far fetched, you say? That's OK ... maybe once you're 2 or 3 years older (and mellower) youself it will sound more feasible.

    No problem - what are friends for, anyway?

    Anyway, I don't think you really want me to clean that crystal ball. Who knows what I might see then? The mini lathe might turn into a PowerMatic monster, you might actually start hauling the mini version on your cross-country trips and cranking out projects for visitees with wood from their own property (while-they-wait) ... no, I'll leave it as dusty as I can for now ... strictly for your sake.
