Day 341

Before scraping the windshield
Before scraping the windshield

If you couldn’t tell, it was a frosty morning. I was wearing my sunglasses, and I didn’t see the outline of the house, just the blue windshield. It was really kind of pretty.

For some unknown reason I started thinking about fried bologna sandwiches this morning. I guess I was hungry; I hadn’t eaten breakfast yet, but I don’t know why that meal came to my mind. I haven’t had a good fried bologna sandwich since I rotated back to the states from Germany in 1971. There was a bowling alley in the compound where our office was located, just a few buildings away. We would often send someone to the snack bar in the bowling alley to pick up sandwiches for our lunch, and that is where I discovered fried bologna sandwiches. I’ve tried to make them for myself since I got out of the army, but I’ve never mastered the technique. I invariably overcook them, and they become shrunken charred pieces of lunch meat. But I now have a hankering for one, so I’ll probably be trying again soon. If I figure out how to do it correctly, I’ll post it here.

Yesterday in the mail I received a catalog of DVD’s. I was leafing through the pages when I saw three separate Boston Blackie movies listed. That caught my attention because I used to watch Boston Blackie on television when I was a kid. I’m pretty sure that what I watched was a television series, rather than the movies, and I know I liked the show. I think it was a series because the style of dress was similar to the Adventures of Superman series that starred George Reeves. I’m almost certain that I remember Blackie driving a convertible in at least one episode, but I could be wrong about that. I may have to see if any of those shows are available on DVD.
