melania christmas

I just got the email on this one.

It’s the Melania Trump designed and signed Christmas ornament. One of the many. Comes with one of those useful NFT’s.

Is the perfect gift for friends and family of any political persuasion.

Your friends overseas will especially want one, but they will be too shy to ask, so just go ahead and send one out.

I predict a roaring black market for them in those been-f****d-over countries, like Germany, Cuba, anywhere in Latin America really. Such a gift will help them come into the fold of righteousness.

good food in charlotte

I could eat it every day.

I could live off this Honduran, Salvadoran, Mexican. Maybe throw in occasional Jamaican and a Golden Corral buffet.

breakfast coffee setup in restaurant

What a pretty coffee and breakfast setup. I’m back at the Honduran Salvadoran restaurant in Charlotte that’s open for breakfast. Got my order in.

a fair exchange

“Can you help me top up my cell phone?”

— “You know the rules. Three good selfies first.” 📸

chilaquiles and coffee

Chilaquiles and coffee for breakfast in Charlotte. It will be the highlight of my week, maybe the whole month.

OMG, this plate is insane!

church basement

For a moment, I was down in the basement of the church where I visited today for music reasons. I found a pool table, ping-pong, foosball, and a nearby refrigerator for my beer!

me? in church?

I have sneaked into the Presbyterian sanctuary for the pre-service warmup and service.

They have real Bibles in here and everything. 😆

Organ sounding good. So far I have not burst into flames. 😂

My spouse is playing clarinet here today.

road food

I’m in a Food Lion supermarket in Altavista, Virginia, and was looking forward to working for the store by using the self checkout.

There wasn’t one. Pretty disappointed. ☹️

The deli case there was exquisite this morning. Set me up nicely for lunch on the road. 🥗🥪
