Six Word Saturday (he's eating again)

my Six Words:
My first corn dog, in Monterey

I was 31, it was a sunny Sunday afternoon on a pier in Monterey, California. I was in Palo Alto attending a month long Lockheed school on a new piece of electronics, a telemetry PCM digital ground station, for NASA. Corn dog was not in my vocabulary until that day. They are one of my favorites now.
Do you like corn dogs?  Here is the link for the 55 cent off coupon:
My choice is the Classic dogs, in the 16 count package like these.  I get them when Kroger has them on sale, perhaps $1.50 off, more or less.

Eight Pictures — My Alphabe-Thursday (4th), the letter "O"

"O" is for 'Old things' and for 'Omelets', both items I like.
(Oh, yes, today is National Bow Tie Day, wear yours please)
(you can click on any picture for a screen sized view) 

Here for the old things
 First, Old cars

This 1929 Model A Ford belongs (he may have traded it off by now) to my friend, John.
Next will be Old buildings

Old General Store at Washington, Texas
(near where our Texas Constitution was formed back in 1836 when we became a country)

A cute little Old house in Key West Florida
(we visited there this spring in April, caught it on our walk to down town)

A nice Old hotel in Wales
(we visited northern Wales this May for a few days, train from London to Shrewsbury, U.K, rented a car, stayed at B&B's in and around Barmouth, Wales, U.K.  Visited with friends at Northampton after turning car back.)

Nice Old Southwark Cathedral in London U.K.
(One fourth of my heritage is with U.K. families, the Fletchers and the Crams.  I think the Fletcher on this plaque is the Poet, John Fletcher [1579-1625][Link].  The Fetchers settled in Massachusetts--cousin, Moses Fletcher, came on the Mayflower--then moved to New Hampshire, and finally settled in Maine.  My Fletcher and Cram moved to Nebraska, married, and founded the town, Fletcher, Nebraska (town since dissolved, post office closed).

Nice Old red corrugated steel sided shed I found here.  
It is on the way from Conroe to our town, Montgomery (Texas suburbs of Houston)
I am sure there is an old car or two stored here.  Think so?
Oh yes, the Omelet?  I have pictures, I really like those.  I made Omelets for Mrs. Jim and me for lunch yesterday.  Sorry, I didn't take a picture this time.  It wasn't so very pretty.  But it sure did taste good.  It was an egg, onion, corned beef, and cheddar cheese Omelet.

Succintly Yours

Yeagar* braked, water thrusters ON. Only a dribble of water came out. An isolated crash for sure!
Then, thank Goodness, hands from his Angel!

- Until it burned, the bar, called "The Outpost Tavern," was a prominent hangout for the astronauts and flight controllers.  My retirement group, Philco (Ford) Tech Rep, met there for a luncheon once a month (picture and my blog article link)  .
