Wicked Good Waffles

Just wanted to share this yummy waffle from the Wicked Waffle in Bethesda, Maryland. 

This waffle was steaming hot and had sugared flour and chocolate drizzle and had less than 200 calories!

The Wicked Waffle has all sorts of waffle sandwiches…made fresh right there in front of you. 

Grilled cheese, egg and cheese, tuna melt, tomato with mozzarella and arugula, waffle french toast, also meat waffle sandwiches (but those not kosher). 

The only food that can take on waffles is pancakes, but these wicked waffles will give any pancake a very big run for the money. 😉

Smelt It Dealt It

Smells

As kids, there always used to be someone who would run around holding their nose, and yelling at the smallest sign of someone’s flatulence…Eew!


In turn, the other kids would all chime in: “The person who smelt it, dealt it!”


Might as well push the responsibility where it rightfully belongs–uh, maybe. 


This is what kids do–they are not politically correct in the slightest!


Are adults any better really?


I’ve seen grown men and women start holding their noses and waving their hands in front of their faces when someone is stinking up the local air.


In particular, this happens quite a bit on places like the crowded Metro and elevators…going down. 


People are unforgiving when the air is foul. 


Personally, I am very sensitive to bad smells and hot air–my A/C is running full blast all around the year…even in Winter, seriously!


When I saw this sign in a storefront window that said, “Free Smells,” I thought to myself, gee we got enough smells to last a lifetime, and that’s why fresh air and nature is so appealing to the good ‘ol olfactory senses. 


Free smells…unless it’s fresh flowers or some savory dish to eat–you can have it–free or not, I frankly don’t give a damn.  


My personal belief is that an odor is far more likely to cause you a gag sensation than put a refreshing smile on your ugly face. 


Good etiquette, keep your smells to yourself. 😉

Golden Retriever Swims Like A Fish

Out on the kayak today with Rebecca in Maryland. 



This beautiful golden retriever named Rudder was playing on the bank and in the water. 



He was swimming and chasing a toy that the friendly owners were throwing way out into the pond. 



On this hot sunny day, this dog was having a blast, and the people seemed to enjoy talking with us about him. 



Overall this was a welcome break from the Dog Days of Summer. 😉

Die Bed Bugs, Die

Die Bed Bugs, Die

So our daughter went off to college and brought us home a present–bed bugs!

This was the worst–at first we didn’t understand why we were getting itchy bites.

Eventually, with some research and inspection, we figured it out

We tried to treat it ourselves–powders, sprays, encasements, and more–all to no avail.

We also threw out all the bedding and even the beds.

We were losing sleep and patience–big time.

We finally hired a serious exterminator who brought in these huge heaters and blasted our place for about 6 hours at something like 140 degrees.

That should kill those and any other buggers bothering us.

When I got home–it was an oven and I couldn’t even change my clothes because the workers were still here at it.

I spent 5 hours cleaning up afterwards in the boiling house and even with all the windows open, it was like an oven and impossible to sleep last night–tossing and turning.

It was hell, but hopefully it’s over–may I never see another vermin like this again. 😉
