I'd be willing to try that, even though, so far, I've never liked peaches.  I do like mangos--similar flavor but not as pronounced--and I love onions!

I do, too, but cats and dogs are the only species I'd want as pets, and dogs only as visitors, and that's if they're housebroken.

I like Marie Callender's frozen foods--best in the market!

 I will have to try that!  

 

Good neighbors.  I really like, and appreciate, good neighbors. There's a young man, Mike, next door who looks like a badass jerk, but he's always been very nice and polite.  Yeah, his car is too loud, but other than that, I rarely hear any noise at all from his side of the fence.  He has a small, yappy dog, but as soon as the dog starts to make noise, Mike deals with it.  Mike also grows tons of vegetables in his tiny backyard.  The other day while I was out back watering my perennials, he popped his head over the fence and held up a big bunch of artichokes.  "Want some artichokes?" he offered.  Well no, I didn't, but wasn't that terribly nice of him to offer?  I thought so too.  If only all neighbors were so considerate and thoughtful.

Love peanut butter, can't stand cucumbers unless they've been turned into pickles.

We've been very fortunate with good neighbors, even in the dumpy old Daytona-area trailer park in which we lived from 1968 to 1978.  As I recently mentioned somewhere or another, at least half the park's tenants were also Embry-Riddle students (but didn't have children yet).  Most Saturdays, except in the winter, the guys would go to the beach to drag a seine through the surf, or go clamming and oystering, or crabbing, in the Halifax River, bring their treasure home, and we'd all take turns hosting Saturday Night Dead or Alive.  BYOB, so all the host had to provide, in addition to the fire to boil the "catch," were melted butter, cut lemons, Italian or French bread to tear apart, and maybe some sides from the nearest supermarket's deli.

Anyway, then came the summer of '78 and a much better job for Eddie, a move to the Jacksonville area, and the purchase of a "real" house.  I left that choice to Himself, since he was the one who'd have to commute.  Neither of us was impressed by what we saw of J'Ville, so we wound up in a much quieter county. 

We couldn't have asked for a better subdivision. We all on our street, except Ed, who runs the riding mower over anyone's lawn that needs it, mind our business except when we somehow sense one of us needs help.  I have no idea how we do that, but after 39 years here, we just do.

Sitting on a chair at the beach, listening to the waves lapping the shore, the seagulls screeching, and just staring out at the water covered in sparkly flashes from the sun.

When I was younger and all my parts worked better, I enjoyed sitting in a sun-warmed tidal pool or finding seashells.

Total quiet in the neighbourhood.  No kids.  No banging or noisy motors.  Just a nice peaceful day.

Figs!  They're in season now, and Publix will have them on BuyOneGetOne deals for a few more weeks.  This helps make up for the cherries, which went from a low of $1.99/lb late July to $3.99/lb a couple weeks ago.  Figs are so scrumptious when they're dipped in honey.

I've never heard about that, but it sounds really scrumptious.  I like Thomas's flavored English muffins--they're a bit sweet but go so well with deli ham or turkey for the bedtime snack sandwiches Ed fixes me long before my 4 or 5 a.m. bedtime.

Yep, either shaved Parmesan or shredded mozzarella works.

I love Pepperidge Farm swirl breads--again, they have just the right sweet hint.  Oh hell, I've probably mentioned it not long ago, but I will again--I'm so thankful for the amazing and efficient production and distribution systems our two countries enjoy, not just for food, but so many other fabulous products.

Having Paisley, the family Schnoodle, snuggle up on the bed overnight.

The Schnoodle has almost the same first name as Eddie's and my first (and so far only, thank God) great-grandchild, although in The Kid's instance, it's spelled Paislee.

I like the way cats check up on us many times a day.
