Delight

"Remember that we live in bodies that, through a feast of the senses, appreciate the beauty of the world." (Wayne Muller)

Yesterday, I had my favorite meal: Buffalo Wild Wings' chicken wings coated in Caribbean Jerk sauce, a basket of Buffalo Chips (fries in the shape of coins) dipped in ketchup, and a cold large draft Newcastle. It's true that I'm trying to eat vegetarian anytime I have an option - but this is my one hangup (ok, maybe there's more than one). But it's a glorious one. If I knew I was going to die tomorrow, I'm quite sure this would be my last marvelous meal.

Then, my buddy Derkillama and myself sat in my garage shortly after a large thunderstorm had moved through and watched dark clouds rolling by, a peaceful rain, and the sky light up with sporadic lightening as we sipped homemade Jack Daniels Mint Juleps and enjoyed expensive cigars.

When life's good, it's good.

I hear ya! I do miss my Buffalo wings....Pepperoni Pizza is my downfall though!

No one need be a saint ALL the time- how boring!

I love to watch and take in rain with all of my senses. And the Infinites One's lightning light show is always a cherry on top.

No one gets out of life alive, so you might as well enjoy it! Don't know the original wit, but it's so true.

I remember going to Buffalo Wild WIngs when it was BW3. Good times.

What kind of cigars were you smoking. I smoked an Onyx last fall and was praying to die the rest of the night.
