Old Tailless

Posted on Monday, June 3rd, 2019 at 2:04 am

One of the older geckos here keeps losing his tail. Not sure how, be it bird, rodent, or another lizard. But he keeps losing it and regrowing it, identifiable by the stubbiness, a definite Δ to the diameter. And he runs off all the smaller ones with beautiful tails when he shows, grumpy old tailless thing that he is.


The La-Z-Boy is ready for surgery. Everything there in place. It will happen soon. It was 94°F yesterday, so I soaked in the tub instead.


Cheese risotto is the next dish to cook. I have grown to like it a good deal, and it’s a good way to use up a pint of milk.


New ice trays. Found them in a bargain bin at HEB. They are cheap, thin walled, and I’m not sure how durable at this point. They are extremely flexible, and a simple twist and flip empties the tray into the bin. No more frozen fingers from the silicone trays. Seven in the freezer, three in reserve, and I may grab a few more for insurance. The cubes are bigger than ones that the silicone trays make, a bit over twice the size, so they won’t melt as quickly. And the seven should fill the bin from empty. Just in time for summer.

Now I need to do something with the freezer. I restocked the frozen nukeables. I had to thaw the gumbo and the last of the spare ribs to make room. And I still have a tray of chicken quarters to cook on Wednesday (rain in the forecast, cooler temps). I will be eating a lot this week.
