Six Word Saturday ~~ What to do?

My Six Words:
Sold out, no twenty-eight cent lunch

After the dentist a couple of weeks ago I stopped at the grocery store.  I had a tooth pulled and the dentist recommended I have soup and soft food like Jell-O (which I do not like, eating cow hooves).
My dentist is in Huntsville, Texas, a smallish college town, home of Sam Houston State University   (Google Link)  That pretty well explains why the store shelves were empty. 
I love the stuff, I didn't show the sodium content, it runs HIGH.

BTW, I was talking with a former widower tonight who had remarried.  Seems as though kids take a while getting used to Dad being remarried.  I told him to tell them that he had to hurry while he still had most of his teeth left.

My Alphabe-Thursday (5th), the letter "D" — Some places I've been starting with "D"

"D" is for some places, countries and cities starting with the letter "D" where I have traveled:
Dallas, Texas
Denver, Colorado
Des Moines, Iowa
Detroit, Michigan
Dublin, Ireland

Last first, we loved Dublin.  But our first visit was just a hotel stay in the spring of 2009 and then after touring Ireland (stayed at B&Bs) coming back on an emergency flight from Dublin (I fell at Powerscourt Gardens, just south of Dublin--to read my blog entry about that fall, click here). 
We did come back again and walked the city Dublin in the fall of 2009.

Excerpt from my blog post mentioned above (link):  This is the young lady who helped me at Powerscourt Garden Estates. She was sitting at the top of the steps having a smoke.

She and another young man saw me tumble, they both came running to help me back up. They offered help me to the first aid place but I had to find Mrs. Jim first.

For our Denmark visit, we flew over from London, U.K, to Copenhagen for a Baltic Sea cruise on the Princess line.   We spent two days and three nights before embarking and then another day at the end of the cruise before flying back to London.

Our first day we did Copenhagen in, just walking around, seeing the sights and doing what tourists should do.  The second day we rented a car and drove to the north of Copenhagen and back.  It was beautiful country but around Copenhagen it was mostly flat and very wet with all it's ponds and lakes.

The third day was at the end of our cruise and we did the things we didn't get done the first day.  Jim's Denmark (click on them to see) Post 1,  Post 2,  Post 3

Now we go window shopping with Jim. Pictures from our Copenhagen visit.

Walking pictures. The yacht above is private.
You helped pay for it buying Microsoft ware.

Octopus is currently the world's ninth largest super yacht, owned by Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, to whom she was delivered in 2003. Octopus is the third largest super yacht that is not owned by a head of state, measuring 414 feet (126 m), and at the time it was built, was believed to be the biggest such yacht.
It carries two helicopters on board. (

 - Jenny is starting in now on her tenth series of Alphabe thursday.  With 52 weeks in a year and 26 letters in the alphabet she is now in her fifth year.  I am linked to her blog, GO HERE for more participants and their offerings. 

 - I am in my fifth series of Alphabe Thusday.  I intend to put on some pictures of my travels when I can find a few.  Some are in albums, pictures I've taken before a digital camera came to me.  I haven't scanned any yet.

Cool Western Breeze, Open Window -- Two Shoes Tuesday

Cool western breeze, open window
Cool western breeze, open window,
Calmly blowing flickering flames
The candles don't seem to mind
Rain in pin sized droplets glistening
Sagging curtain, it's dripping wet
Worries, soon to fall, on the floor
Murky puddles grow, rain stops not
Once was dust, now is mud and slime
Fit for pigs, the floor doesn't mind
Open window lets nature in

Nature's critter, our beloved Katrin, also wants in. 
May she RIP

Katrin, our toy poodle died Tuesday last week
She died in her doctor's office of heart failure.  We loved Katrin so very much, Mrs. Jim had "rescued" her from a dying friend.

At left is Katrin last year on her 13th July birthday walking across the back porch to our back door. On the right is a very guilty dog back in 2008 when we first got her.  She had gotten into BP's toothpaste.  See this link:

Some of my other blog posts with Katrin can be found here and here.
