I’ve Been Pondering…

Why do companies that make trail mix lack the understanding for the correct ratio of M&M’s to nuts which requires me to add extra bags of M&M’s…New Rule: If there is zero snow accumulation in mid January, winter must be cancelled…Why is it that with twenty streaming apps offering 50,000 shows/movies that some days the best thing on the tv is Law & Order and Anthony Bourdain reruns…According to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources the wild turkey resurgence in Michigan is one of the greatest wildlife conservation stories. The fifty turkeys that stand around my deck watching my Anthony Bourdain reruns through the window and knock on the sliding glass door to make sure I don’t change the channel would agree…If this is another year of living in a bubble, then I may have to drink a shot every time I hear the phrase “dry January”…

  1. Too funny and I agree. I was wondering just yesterday about good TV shows. Where have they gone? 😊

  2. What good points you raise. Winter doesn’t seem to want to come, and COVID just won’t go away. Let’s hear it for turkeys and shots and Anthony Bourdain.

    1. Thank you!😁 I keep telling everyone winter is over, but they keep telling me it’s going to arrive in February and then I’m going to have to come up with another drinking game!!😁

  3. And that is why I refuse to pay for streaming! It’s bad enough that some of my favorite shows have gone to a streaming platform that takes them away. I almost cringe when I hear that S word while watching my cable shows!

    Yay for the wild gobblers! I’ve never eaten one. And, don’t get too drunk!

    1. I still prefer regular tv over streaming, but unfortunately as much as I like some of the streaming services I think they have damaged both platforms. My fifty turkeys are looking very healthy and happy and luckily I haven’t created a drinking game that requires a shot every time one walks by the window!😁

    2. I’ve been told that wild turkey isn’t as good as the ones we buy for the holidays. The taste is different so no thanks! I read an article a while ago about the market being oversaturated or close to it with new streaming services. I don’t see cable going away soon…

  5. These are the big questions! Can’t go far wrong with Mr. Bourdain (still mourning his loss) and isn’t it great all the resurgent turkeys are round your place enjoying the reruns?! On we go with this weird winter, and if it takes an extra glass or two to get through it, then so be it, and I’ll continue to pretend I’ve never heard of d*y January…
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Better find a new show or movie before I’m consumed by more of these big questions!! Surprisingly I discovered today that the turkeys do not share my love for Sylvester Stallone as this was the first day this week they weren’t watching tv with us when Tulsa King was on this afternoon. I might just have to have a Stallone marathon this weekend!! I don’t know if it’s my age or this weird winter, but I hope I don’t create a new drinking game for every season and theme that irritates me. Enjoy the weekend and a big win by Tottenham!😁
