I got myself a new tee shirt, as being modeled in the photo by my lovely assistant, Ms. Dining Room Chair. I need another tee shirt like a dose of the clap, but a "Welder Guy" shirt rocks. Special 79 is hawking these things to help fund a trip he's taking to Born Free to showcase his work. It's out west and he's out east. Not cheap to get yourself and a motorcycle across the country. A double sawbuck will get you one and that includes shipping. Help a really talented fabricator out a little and get a cool shirt in the bargain.
The Missus and I went out of town for the weekend. We stopped outside of Indy and met my niece for lunch at Jersey's Cafe. Not the place a vegan would normally seek out but they have some kind of tree hugger sandwich that I ordered. Not bad, but I really would have preferred one with pastrami or corned beef. Or maybe the baked potato bowl smothered in chili and cheese. All the sandwiches were about six inches high and everything comes with cheese. As my old friend Mr. Rivers used to say about another subject, "Not good for you, but good to you".
Also stopped at a Tim Hortons for a cup of coffee while we were buzzing around in Ohio. If you're a hockey fan, you've seen the name Tim Horton painted on the boards of every NHL team. If you're an old hockey fan, like me, you remember Tim Horton when he played. The Tim Horton stores used to be just donuts and just in Canada. Now they're a cafe and bake shop and in the U.S. When my buddy Kevin and I ran the Detroit Half-Marathon a few years back we ran by a Tim Horton's right after coming out of the tunnel, if I remember correctly. I offered to run in a get us a couple of sinkers and then catch up but I guess my buddy figured running 13.1 miles was tough enough without a couple of donuts weighing him down so he took a pass. Owning a Tim Horton's would be good, though. Get out of education and into donuts. Don't know what a franchise would cost, but putting your money in the bank or the stock market these days is pretty futile. I've invested a lot of money in donuts over the years. Should have invested in the franchise instead. The wallet would have gotten fatter instead of the waistline.
