Now That’s A Deck Chair

Love this new deck chair, finally!


Life is good!


Keep it simple!


Have a pillow to match.  


Last chair in stock.  


Grabbed the floor model. 

 

Reminds me of the Patagonia brand.  😉

My Blue Thumb

Oops! I goofed watering the plants this week. 


I got a new spray bottle from Home Depot and I put the Fantastic cleaner it in. 


Thinking about the new bottle, I accidentally picked it up to water the plants. 


I sprayed the cactus and immediately realized what I had done!


Oh sh*t! I just poisoned my cactus. So quickly, I poured water in to try to dilute it. 


I thought to myself how the plant would react and I imagined how a person would react if they drank Fantastic. 


Sure enough within a couple of days the cactus was reeling. 


But I think a person could probably recover if it wasn’t too much, so I’m hoping the cactus will too. 😉

We Are Family!

I like this definition of family:

 

Family means NOBODY gets left behind. 

 

We take care of each other.

 

No matter what.

 

My father used to say:

Blood is thicker than water. 

 

It’s not just from the battlefield that we make sure to bring everyone home.

 

Home is where the heart is.  😉

Recliner Stuck

So yesterday, there was a huge pouring thunderstorm and lightening.

 

After a bolt or two that must have hit our power line, ALL the power went out.

 

That was not fun when sitting in an La-Z-Boy electric recliner chair.

 

Where the f*** is the safety release on this thing when there is no power?  😉

Copper Pots, Pans, and Bowls

Really liked this set of matching copper pots, pans, and bowls. 

 

Lighter than cast iron and conducts heat 5x better.

 

They look good and if coated with a non-stick substance are very functional. 

 

Not just as a wall hanging but on the stove. 😉

Great Chair and Ottoman

Wow, love this RED chair and ottoman. 


The chair practically reaches out to grab you.


And the ottoman is an almost perfect ball. 


Like two pieces that were made to be together. 


You can’t help but sit down, get comfortable, and have the best rest of your life!  😉

My Merkava

Ah, it finally came. 


My new wall hanging of a Merkava IV tank. 


This is a large 47×36 photo print on aluminum and weights about 8 pounds. 


I have it hanging proudly in my home.


To me, this is absolutely beautiful.  


And did I say, I love it!  😉

Free COVID-19 Cure

This sign was just too great. 


Advertisement with the little slips at the bottom to tear off. 

Free Cure for COVID-19.
Please take an information strip below

And what do the strips say:

Stay the F**K at home


I wonder why no one took any of the strips? LOL


Like every meaningful issue, we have people on both sides of the aisle fighting it out what is the right thing to do. 


And when it comes to life and liberty, passions certainly run high. 😉

Visit Back Home

On the way to a family wedding in Monsey.

We stopped back home in Riverdale, NY after 20 years.

Wow, old building still here. 

And the KeyFood supermarket too. 

Had a nice lunch at Kai Fan kosher Chinese food (the Sesame Chicken was great!). 

Went up to my parents old apartment and saw the outlines of where the mezuzah had once stood. 

I wanted to hear their voices through the door and go in to see them again.

It was very emotional, but I felt like their presence was there with us. 

Enjoyed seeing how some (very few) things have changed and all that has otherwise stayed the same 

With seeing my wife’s family, some after many years, it was like I had never not seen them. 

I imagined that this is what dying must be like when you go to the afterlife and there is no time and you see everybody and it’s just like they have always been there. 

That was an amazing realization and feeling for me. 😉
