TEN-FOUR GOOD BUDDIES, THIS IS THE RED RIDER COMIN’ DOWN INTERSTATE THIRTY, WHICH IS LOOKIN’ PURTY. NO SMOKIES IN THE POKIES, SO Y’ALL CAN PUT THE METAL TO THE PETAL!
Yeah, as you can see, I’ve been spending way too much time on the Interstate. The Highway Hotshot and I have been pushing the old eighteen-wheeler as fast as she can go, and we’ve covered quite a bit of ground. Heck, we’ve gone from the Lone Star State to the Interstate, and then up to the Blue Grass State, down to the Peach State, and over to the Sunshine State! (Now we’re in a state of confusion!)
We “landed” in Boca Raton two days ago, and just between you and me, it’s nice to be off the road for a while. Now we have time to focus on the really important things in life….. food and alcohol. Our “re-education” began at a wonderful Greek restaurant just north of here. My generous (and fabulously wealthy) brother, Glenn, and his beautiful wife, Grace, took us out for dinner and we ate like kings! (Think humus, warm pita bread, feta cheese, olives, grilled octopus, fresh fish, lobster, shrimp. scallops, mussels, clams, and of course, moussaka!) OMG, what a way to start (or continue) a vacation!
Proving that we do NOT (contrary to popular belief) base our vacations upon dinner festivities, we also had an incredible lunch today. Those of you that grew up back east know that the BEST pastrami in the world can be found a Jewish Deli, and down here in Boca Raton they have one of the best….. The world famous “Flakowitz Deli!” (YES, THAT IS THE REAL NAME OF THE PLACE!) Well, since we are gluttons (for food and punishment) we ate there today, and had the pleasure of consuming a gigantic pastrami sandwich, a potato knish, and several cans of Dr. Brown’s Cream Soda. Needless to say, we are stuffed, and we will not be eating a thing until dinner. (Hey, what time is it?)
The weather down here is hot and sunny, which is not too surprising, since we are in south Florida. We (the Yanoff organization) are about to head to the beach to catch some rays. (No, not sting rays. We only eat tuna, but they are difficult to catch by hand.) Anyway, after we turn and burn, we will be going to a marvelous local taverna for some delicious Italian food. (God, I hope I don’t get pasta poisoning again!) Look for my delectable review in the days ahead.
Well, my friends, time to lather up! Be well, be happy, and be careful!
Love to all,
