$10.50 a pound is a steal. First time I ate swordfish was in Algiers. It was an epiphany

Just curious about the first line of your last post. As I have absented myself from the political as much as possible, I am afraid I don't understand your reference. As a fellow Ute, What building were you speaking of at the U of U.

Or did I miss the reference entirely?

Whole Foods for some reason is running sales on swordfish I meant the building the VP debate was held in.

You object to my posting pictures of the result of my outdoor cookery? If so, get lost. it's my private blog.

Oh Kingsbury Hall? That is down at the bottom of the Circle, just across from the Newman Center.

So you think that I do not own SST?

Mark Gaughan

No, no, no, pl, you do.
I read SST every day. (for years) Thanks.

Mark Gaughan

pl,
I like your blog a lot. I learn here. With all that has been going on this year, I think (more than ever), that humor is the best medicine (and whisky).

All

the fatuous Spanish kid wrote say that if I knew the perils of the sea I would not steal from the fishermen. I am from Maine and worked part time while in HS on a lobsterman out of Kennebunkport. We pulled 40 pots twice a day. We used to get about 40 cents a pound at the dock. 4 foot wind waves are some of my favorite memories of high school. DOL

I don't remember much of the geography of the campus as it ran downhill from old Fort Douglas. That was still a sub-post of Ft. Carson. We had a nice place to live in town. I remember that the crusty old bastard who was post commander told me at a courtesy call on him that he disapproved of the army sending officers to civilian graduate school and for that reason he would not give me a set of those beautiful Victorian quarters on post. I thanked him for his time. DOL

Colonel:

For what it is worth, when I got out in '81 and went back to grad school on the GI bill, I used to head up to the dinkey little Fort Douglas PX to buy non 3.2% beer (was in the reserves in the 19th Group). I met a couple of your edumacated grad school officers while reprovisioning. Even had beers with them (since I was in grad school and a vet, they were comfortable chatting) down at Big Ed's off campus.

Where this is going is all they and their wives did is bitch about the cold, drafty, hot, nasty beautiful Victorian quarters.

Seems to me that you dodged a bullet.

SWMBO laughs at the crass stupidity of officers' wives who did not love those beautiful old houses. They did not deserve them. https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3058/2384919367_fd0bcf7e7b_b.jpg
