Various stuff

I was going to use 'miscellany' as the title, but if I end up spelling it wrong--at least it isn't right there at the top. Today I mixed the mayo for my seafood salad (fake crab) sandwich 3/4 parts fake mayo to 1/4 part real. It tastes just as good. My daughter says she can't tell the difference between the fake stuff and the real stuff. I must have too damned many taste buds, because I can. Speaking of my daughter, we had a wonderful day out yesterday. She's 21. When my kids were younger, I'd take one kid out each Saturday to run errands with me, hit garage sales and have lunch. That got the particular kid out of chores for a day. It got me one-on-one time with one kid. The practice has faded over the years--the older 3 are in college and have jobs, the younger one is too busy with his friends. But when Katherine said, "you know what I'd like to do? I have Saturday off--let's hang out like we did back in the day", I was thrilled. Back in the day is one of her expressions. So we had lunch in Northport, by the water, and talked about this and that. Having lunch with my 21-year-old is like having lunch with a girlfriend. We hit a few garage sales and an antique store. The weather was perfect. Lunch was pricey--we went Dutch on it. I told her next time we'd do hamburgers. I hope it isn't too long until next time!

I answered you on your blog...in case you come back here again. And I just found out what fake crab is: pollock! Or whiting, as it is sometimes called.
