August Dinner

OK dinner fans.  We are leaving the country and going South.  No cigars in this restaurant but a little Latin flavor should help.  Not sure if I can compete with Kay’s Harvest restaurant from last month but here goes.


WHERE:              Cubana

LOCATION:       2206 Frankfort Ave

DATE:                 Thursday, Aug 11th

TIME:                  6pm



I will make the reservations on MONDAY Aug 8th.  Please let me know by then so I can let the restaurant know if they will need an extra server.

A different kind of brain teaser… (G)

I am sending this only to my smart friends.  My first thought was wrong and I had to look at the answer.  See how long it takes you to figure it out the first time you try. If you can figure out what these seven words all have in common.

1. Banana
2. Dresser
3. Grammar
4. Potato
5. Revive
6. Uneven
7. Assess


Give it another try….Look at each word carefully.

You’ll kick yourself when you discover the answer.


This is so cool…..   No, it is not that they all have at least  2 double

letters……..  Answer is below!


Are you peeking or have you already given up?



















































In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word. Did you figure it out?  Then, you’ll feel better too.

No? Then send this to more people and stump them as well.

Yesterday I was at my local COSTCO buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Jake, the Wonder Dog and was in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

What did she think I had an elephant? So since I’m retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in  the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an  intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and that the way that it works is, to load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care, because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle’s ass and a car hit me.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.

Costco won’t let me shop there anymore.

July Dinner

Hey all you dinner fans.  Happy 4th of July OR if you prefer Independence Day.   Someone wiser than I once said “Have a 5th on the 4th”  OR bourbon Smash !!

Anyway here is the dining selection from Paul and Kay, so you can’t blame me if you don’t like it.

WHERE:             Harvest Restaurant

LOCATION:       624 E. Market

DATE:                 Thursday, July 14th

TIME:                  6pm


They are asking that we select from a slightly limited menu do to their small size.  I said OK  but if that doesn’t suit you then OK.

I will be making the reservations on MONDAY, July 11th mid-afternoon.  They are planning for 20, 2-10 person tables.

If you have trouble making up your mind and can’t email me then call the restaurant 384-9090 after the 11th.

Hope to see everyone there.
