First TIAPOS at Jacky's

Wow, it's been a month since I visited Plotnik, and longer, I'm sure, for you. One good way to drop readership is to write nothing. But it is simpler.

Tonight is the first TIAPOS meeting back at Jack's house since Jane passed away. It will be bittersweet but we are all moving forward, as we must. Suzy is the new Boss, and we should have more than a full house tonight because the Blonde Bombshell is coming! I am looking forward to all the laughter and pizza. I'll post some photos tomorrow.

Three Bs

Don't write much on Plotnik anymore -- readership had dropped below the Mendoza line.

Good news: Bron is in Botswana, Dan is going to Bulgaria and we are back from Belize. Bodes well forthe  Pinning Ceremony this year.

We Got Florida Back

Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio both thanked Jesus, their Lord and Creator, for their victories in Iowa. They both hope to serve their country for 80 years then spend the rest of their lives at their Creator's side, in Heaven.
Bad news: Just what we need! More Mullahs! Religious wing nuts determined to purge the Earth of non-believers.
Good news: The Democrats just got Florida back.

Rigatoni Alla Shmear

I didn't take a picture, sorry. But after traveling for years in Italy, and eating for longer than that in Italian-American cities, I have devised the tastiest pasta dish on earth. I just have. Oh, ye scoffers. Ask my wife. Of course you need that marzano tomato sauce I froze last summer, and bulk sausage from Little City Meats, and a combination of sheep and cow's milk grating cheeses we brought back from Naples, and a secret ingredient, about which I will only say: think shmear.

The "Home for Thanksgiving" and the "Paul Reubens."

Ike's is the best.
