RICH! RICH!

not all of us... yea, you're right I suppose the difference is minimal.  I just have a memory of slathering 'country crock' out of a tub as a kid. 

I think these days I use unsalted land-o-lakes -- or whatever Mrs. Dale brings home.  Put it in a butter dish on the counter and let it soften up.

  - I can imagine this to be good.  As a kid we replaced the salt, with sugar and called them 'millionaire sandwiches'.

I can't walk by a pond or crick and not try to skip stones.

As a kid I remember sitting for HOURS at my grandma's house on rainy days spinning buttons - it was the ideal simple pleasure.




I thrift like crazy - almost every day.  And the best feeling, a very simple pleasure is to find something you REALLY are excited about that you don't 'need' at all, and then give it to someone who is obviously looking for that exact thing. 

I do it with clothing a lot.  I'll find a really great heavy coat, and you see a mom come in with her teenage son looking, looking, looking through the coats completely unable to find something decent.  The look of joy, and relief that overcomes the mom when you reach into your cart and say 'I think this would fit your son better than it would me' -- is awesome.

It's really cool with childrens toys too.  Now that Hank is in the picture I am less generous in this regard -- but I used to hoarde up vintage fisher price toys and then see kids who clearly needed them more than I did. 



EDIT -- other than copy/paste --- do we have a 'multi-quote' option like our sister site?

Did the concept of the toast sandwich ever make it across the pond? Thin slice of toast sandwiched between two slices of buttered bread? salt/pepper to taste.
I have never tried it but im assuming the toast will add texture, its origins as a cheap meal can be dated back to Victorian times.

I am reading that as toasted bread between two slices of 'plain' bread with butter and salt/pepper -- i don't think its something I have ever encountered.

I'll have to try that. Usually I'm more of a toasted breadie man - 2 slices of buttered toast with a slice of bread in the middle.

Shooting grape pips into the bin by squeezing it between your thumb & first-finger.

bare feet on freshly cut grass.

The first bite into a bacon & egg sandwich & bursting the yolk.

The first opening of a screwtop bottle of coke- or any other fizzy pop.

Squeezing a whitehead and getting it to shoot onto the mirror.

- Nailing a perfect coffee brew in my Chemex
- Laying on the floor and chilling with the cats
- Getting in a saddle-stitch groove and tuning out the world
- Fresh straight razor shave
