While in WF I bought some salmon at Sam's. Jesse and I love it, but Toby only tolerates it - so it is a treat for us when he is gone. I cooked the salmon on the grill with butter and lemon and Cajun seasonings. It was wonderful. Lindsay came over and ate with us. Later we watched "Romancing the Stone" which we have seen a dozen times, but still love.
When we were kids and Dad was away on business, Mom would fix us certain foods which we loved, but Dad did not care for. Fish of any kind was one of those things that Dad would rather not eat, but we really did not have it often. Maybe that is why it is still such a treat for me. No, when Dad was gone, we would have chicken livers fried or sometimes beef liver. Craig and I were silly over liver. When the school served liver for lunch, all the other students opted for peanut butter, but Craig and I wolfed down as much liver as we could eat. Sillylivers!
My cousin, Jim the Marine, came home for his two week vacation. Since he is working with the Army, he is tour of duty is for a full year this deployment. He is now back in Iraq doing basically the same thing as before, but he will be advising an Iraqi Army Brigade. He said it was more desk time and less time with soldiers which he was not thrilled with, but such is life in the military. Here are some pics of he and his lovely wife on his trip home:
