Hello Christmas tree.

Happy Friday after Thanksgiving! And good morning from Northside…

We put up our Christmas tree out this morning…

We started to add lights but two sets were burned out leaving us with a Christmas tree that was only half-lit …

Unfortunately for Oscar, Genifer found his reindeer antlers…

We ran over to the post office…

We sent a package out that we probably should have mailed last week but I completely forgot about it. We’ll see if it still arrives in time. I hope so.

After we mailed our package, it was Skyline time!

Genifer had a deluxe burrito. And I had a 5-way…

Skyline is so good. I saved my cheese coneys for later. After lunch, Genifer kept working on bringing out the Christmas decorations and I went out to work on the front yard a bit…

We could see our T+G again…

We took the dogs on their evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Tomorrow, we’ll work on some Christmas lights…

We had Thanksgiving leftovers for dinner…

Later, we watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Minion Holiday Special and then we watched 47 Hours to Live on Netflix. The Christmas specials were terrific. The movie was not so great.

But today was fantastic. 😀🌄🎄🏠❤️

The first day of Summer.

Today was the first day of Summer! And it’s Saturday. Good morning from Northside…

For breakfast, I tried one of these Kodiak Cake Blueberry & Maple Flapjack Cups…

It was pretty darn good for just a little microwave pancake cup. Later, we walked down to Blue Jay to get some lunch…

Genifer ordered a huge Greek salad with a side of french fries and I ordered two cheese coneys with a side of french fries as well…

Look at the size of this pepperoncini that came with Genifer’s salad…

It was almost as big as my cheese coney. I ate it. It was really spicy. I probably wouldn’t do that again. It made my eyes water. Other than that mistake, lunch at Blue Jay was great as always.

When we were walking home, we couldn’t help but notice that the front of the Jackson Hewitt tax office was all smashed in…

Apparently last night, someone ran the red light at the corner of Chase and Hamilton and lost control of their vehicle and smashed into the front of this office, which is right on the street corner. People running red lights has become a real problem in Cincinnati. At least one or two cars go through every traffic light after the light turns red.

On our way home, we also stopped to get more milkshakes from Tickle Pickle

Their Flan Halen strawberry milkshake is my favorite.

And then we were pretty lazy again. At least, Premier League soccer is back on TV…

I woke up super early and caught the end of the Doosan Bears Korean baseball game, The Bears won 8-2. Leicester City drew 1-1 against Watford. And my Arsenal lost 2-1 to Brighton Hove & Albion. It’s really nice to have some sports back in my life. It makes things almost feel sort of normal again. Even though life is still not normal at all.

But it was a very pretty first day of Summer…

And a very good evening from Northside…

We’re having a pretty low-key start of Summer weekend. 😀🗓️❤️

Sam Adams Taproom.

We couldn’t decide wanted we wanted to do after work for Valentine’s Day. We had planned to go to Django Western Taco after work. But we weren’t really very hungry. We wanted to stop somewhere. So we just stopped at Sam Adams Taproom for a beer and a pretzel. We really like Sam Adams. They have great beers, giant pretzels and it’s right on our way home…

I had their Mountain Berry light ale aged on raspberries and blackberries…

Genifer had Samuel Adams Oaked Vanilla Porter. Both beers were really good…

Sam Adams used to just have their giant pretzels. Then they added chips & salsa. And now they’ve added a few more menu items…

Genifer still got their giant pretzel…

The giant pretzel is always so good and so giant. I tried one of their Cincinnati Coneys…

Cincinnati chili and queso mixed together on top of a hot dog? Yes, please!

Their coney was outstanding. It was really good. The beer cheese queso and chili combo was delicious. We had one of one Sam Adams I Like Porters. And then we headed for home. We really like Sam Adams Taproom. 😀🍺🥨🌭❤️

Camp Washington Chili.

After Cincinnati Museum Center, we continued my birthday theme of celebrating with things that are Cincinnati wonderful. And we stopped for lunch at another place that’s older than I am, Camp Washington Chili

I’d had Camp Washington Chili at the Coney Eating Contests on Fountain Square but we’d never been to their restaurant for some reason. We thought we’d change that today for my birthday lunch…

Genifer ordered two chili cheese sammiches…

I ordered a patty melt and a cheese coney and we shared some french fries…

Everything was delicious! And there was so much stuff on their menu that sounded great. I can’t wait to come back to Camp Washington Chili because next time I have to try their 513 Way…

It’s three slabs of goetta topped with chili, beans, onions, and cheese. It doesn’t get much more Cincinnati than that. Before we left, we got a couple of pieces of cake for us to eat later…

Genifer got carrot cake because she loves carrot cake…

And I got chocolate cake for my birthday cake…

What a delicious birthday lunch. Thanks, Camp Washington Chili! 😀🧀🌭🎂❤️

ps. I had a really great birthday. Thanks for all the birthday wishes!

It’s Skyline time!

Genifer had to go into work for a little bit this morning. When she got home, we headed over to Skyline in St. Bernard for some Skyline Time! It’s been a minute since we last had Skyline time. I got a Skyline gift card for Christmas but wouldn’t you know I left it on our dining room table…

Mmmm… Cheese coneys and chili cheese sammiches are so good. YUM! 😀🧀🌭❤️

It must be Thursday.

After work this evening, we stopped at Queen City Radio for a Whip Classic burger, a cheese coney, and some fries. We think QCR has some of the best fries around…

On our way home, we checked in on the OscarCams to find Oscar sitting up on the arm of our sofa waiting patiently for us to get home…

What a silly head. 😀🍔🌭🍟📷🐾❤️

Cheese coneys from Blue Jay.

We went to Blue Jay for lunch this afternoon. They have some terrific cheese coneys…

I really love me some cheese coneys. 😀🧀🌭❤️

It’s what’s for lunch.

I had cheese coneys from Sports Page on Main for lunch today…

They were one of the specials of the day: buy three coneys, get one free. And you can’t beat that. They weren’t exact Skyline but they were still pretty dang good. 😀🧀🌭❤️
