The Early Bird Special - A Snippet

Did you have lunch today? 
Yeah, I made a hamburger.
I'm hungry now.  Do you want soup?
And grilled cheese?
We have ciabatta and a good tomato.  I'm on it.

It was 4 o'clock in the afternoon.  The rain had finally stopped, the air smelled of creosote, and it was 4pm.  Not my usual dinner time.  Not by two or three hours.

G'ma and Daddooooo spent 6 long weeks in Florida, researching it as a retirement option.  Along with the absence of anyone under the age of 100, it was The Early Bird Special that put the death knell to their becoming Floridians. 

"What do you do with the rest of the night?" G'ma wondered whenever the topic came up. 

What's the opposite of I have become my mother?  


  1. I find if I eat at this time, I'm often hungry by normal dinner time 6/7ish. But a grilled-cheese sandwich is perfect any time of the day.

    Started my new job yesterday, so I'm back to my morning routine of checking your blog before I get tea.

    Sending hugs!

  2. I love an early dinner, which is mostly what we do around here. Of course, I eat breakfast around 6 and often have very little for lunch. We usually eat dinner at 5, watch the news, and Terry cleans up. We watch a bit of recorded tv and I'm in bed by 8:30. Terry can stay awake longer than I, but I've always been early to bed, early to rise.
