Greetings All. My Spirits and Energy Levels on the Rise. Carvings? Cheats? Do we even need to go there? Absolutely NOT!!!
So what is Dave up to on the (ZC) scene? Scene? (ZC) Scene? Is there such a thing? Well is there? You tell me. OK Dave you were the one that brought up this ….. Subject (?) or did you?
HA! Yes indeed! Why? Hhhmmm ………… you’ve got me there. I really don’t know why or do I?
- · Dave is tripping (again)
- · Dave ate too much bacon with nitrates this weekend and is suffering……
- · Dave has ran away from home and joined the circus
- · Dave is just too …………. Oh well who really knows?
If I were a betting man I would pick …… uumm …. Well I would just put up my money and pick none of thee above.
OK, just a little fun in my (ZC) Bizzaro World. Well let me tell you a Bizzaro tale. A tale that probably many of you have experienced or not. Saturday (DW), the (IL)s and I were supposed to go to The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center for the Breakfast Buffet. Actually this was my (DW)’s plan. Hey I was up for that. I have Eaten breakfast in the past and knew that had a pretty good Omelet Bar. Well Saturday morning comes and (DW) states “Well why don’t we have breakfast here?” OK well folks let me translate that: “Why don’t you cook us all breakfast Dave?” So what is a good hubby to do? Cook of course. I have stated in the past that I cook SAD for my family at home and when I throw parties. It is not my mission in life to “FORCE” someone to (ZC). Either you believe in it or not. I look at it almost like a religion in that sense. Now please don’t get the idea that I worship the (zc) gods. No. that is not what I mean. I just don’t force my opinion on anyone. It is simply not my place. Will I cook SAD? Sure, I definitely will. I have been labeled (elsewhere) “Dave the Enabler”, yes that is little old ME! So I whipped up some Bacon, Eggs and that former (ZC) delight of mine: Pumpkin Pancakes with real Maple syrup. YIKES!!!
So what was the big deal Dave? Nothing, I was just sharing. Well that is only half of the story. Part Two coming right after these messages:
“Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.”
“It is not enough to take steps which may someday lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

And now for the Rest of the Story…………….
So after I “Forced Feed” the crew at home …………… OK enough with the drama lol! Anyway back to part Two: Later that day (DW) has another stroke of Genius!! (DW) said “ why don’t we all have an late lunch/early dinner at the Cheesecake Factory?” Well I thought to myself …… uumm “No thank you.” I really don’t care for their menu. For the amount of meat I can squeeze out of their selections, it is really not worth it to me. I don’t mind paying for what I want, but this place is lacking for a (ZC)er IMO. I rather go to the “Goose’s Acre” and order a plate full of Beef Ribs minus the side salad, french-fries, and coleslaw and still end up with more ribs than I can handle for a measly $15.99. They are also located right on the Waterway, a prime location. So I declined and (DW) gave me that look…. Oh No!! THE LOOK!!!! So what is a good hubby to do again? Yes, I told her “OK, why not.” Why not indeed. Jeez! So what did Dave eat at the Cheesecake Factory?= Zilch, Nada, and Nothing. It’s all good. Hey like I stated before: to each their own. At least we spent some quality time away from the home. It was nice to get out and about. So what‘s the bid deal Dave? Really? Nothing. EXCEPT: that a “portly” couple came and sat across from us. They began to grill the waiter. “Where is the low calorie selection that you guys promised to have?” I felt sorry for the waiter as he tried his best to be diplomatic about the situation. OK folks even Dave knows not to go to the CHEESECAKE FACTORY for low calorie foods. OMG are you kidding me! Well, well, well you should have seen that couple’s eyes BUG-OUT when three slices of Cheesecake were brought to our table after they finished their meals. I could hear them whisper;” Those cheesecakes must have over 5000 calories in them. BTW I had two plain black coffees while at the restaurant. What did the “Portly Couple” have, the ones that were so calorie conscious …. Well she had a salad and what appeared to be a grilled cheese sandwich on Texas Toast and he had what appeared to be the Cuban sandwich (roasted pork) with fries.
Hey I thought I would share a little. This is a regular day in the life of a (ZC)er ….. well at least mine.
