...... good evening, rubberneckers..... I hope that this day found you all well & happily hammering away at whatever it is that you hammerheads get up to on a Saturday.... as for myself, well, it is a cool and rainy day here..... 50 degrees and 100% humidity.... camping weather if there ever was any......

... but alas, there is no camping to be had today or tomorrow.... fainter hearts in the household have poo-poo'ed the idea and have chosen instead to crank the heat up to 75 degrees, flip on The History Channel's program about the colonization of Mars, and munch on potato chips while I prepare chicken parmesan for dinner..... not a bad trade, really.... besides, I'm getting soft and tender in my old age.... and I have found that I much prefer to dig into a nice meal as the evening ends vice a Styrofoam cup of Ramen noodles & a Rice Krispie treat.......

.... don't get me wrong, though.... the fire is still there, folks..... that immortal, simmering nugget of adventure..... I just don't feel the need to actively fan it lately.... besides, my chicken parmesan kicks ass.....

.... anyway, despite the rain and gloom of today, we did actually venture into town to browse through four or five of the local antique shops..... now, I'm not a very good browser, per se..... I'm much more of a seek-find-pay-and-move-on-to-the-next-task kinda guy.... but when the weather is foul, I've found that the welcoming warmth of a antique shop can magically transform me into a fairly good 'browser'.... hey, it beats diddy-bopping down the sidewalk in a chilling drizzle, no?...

.... come to think of it, I'm not that good of a diddy-bopper either..... perhaps I should have said "ambling" instead..... hell, I can amble with the best of 'em.......

.... but be that as it may, I'm off to start cooking dinner....

Wait a minute... getting a picture... almost... nah.

Can't see you diddy-bopping, try as I may.

I could totally see you promenading, however, with Fiona on your arm!

Oh, I love antiquing even on the sunniest of days. Hmmm...that's probably why I have an antique store. Unfortunately, I'm not a very good antique dealer....I usually just want to keep everything!

I'm into antique architecture. Any project I start will be one by the time it's done.

Hell, I am, an antique.

You hear that, E-Diddy.... bopper?

What's next, the E-Diddy line of clothing, fragrances and antiques?

Will you become the artist formerly known as Eric?

Do what I did after I found myself on the wrong side of 40. Instead of diddy-bopping, saunter!

So, no coyote hunt,heh. Such is for the young guys anyway..

I get a case of simmering nuggets every now and again....and I'm prone to think that -based on the level of simmering - they make you diddy bop rather than amble. More expeditious that way.

Just sayin' is all.....

I usually get burned out with browsing thru antique and junque stores in about 3.7 minutes. Besides having no interest in the ... uh ... stuff, that musty smell kinda overwhelms me and renders my diddy-bopper unusable. Ambling ... now that sounds more like my cup o' joe...
