On my recent trip to Peru some people took us to a restaurant that had recently won an award for some of their food. Now I must say that this restaurant (Warmy's) served this pork that was to die for! See photo of the pork that I  had eaten at this restaurant. Anyway, this pork was crispy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. This was truly a real treat! Now as I was finishing up my meal I looked up and a man was leading a horse through the restaurant. What? I stopped, looked up and then my mind starting racing. I looked at the food again, then back at the horse. All kind of thoughts started flashing through my head. Did I just eat a horse, I thought! What's going on? I quickly took my camera and followed the horse to see what was going to happen and snapped a photo. Anyway, the horse pictured here was safe and sound and no they did not serve this up as a meal. I guess it was just my paranoia kicking in. HAHA! Anyway, I must say it was quite an experience.

Yes, this is the actual horse

I was thinking the other day about something that happened a long time ago when the wife and I were still dating. I was over her apartment and noticed she had some good toenail clippers. Not wanting to miss this opportunity I proceeded to cut my somewhat overgrown toenails and deposit the clippings in her ashtray. What? HAHA! Now that's only half of the story. It seems the next night the wife was hosting a Tupperware or Crystal party (something like that) and someone went to use the ashtray. Yep, you guessed it! The lady shrieked AAAUUUGGGHHHHH!!!!! GROSS! OH MY GOD! Yep, my toenails were quite a hit at the party. Oh well....HAHA!

This weeks Jazz CD Pick of the Week is a winner I recently picked up while browsing the used bins. This is recorded live and is the Wynton Kelley Trio with Wes Montgomery on guitar! This cd is titled Smokin' At The Half Note and that's exactly what this cd does! Now I have to admit that I don't have a lot of Wes Montgomery's music but everything I have bought is a definite winner. Anyway, this is a nice recording that I have been listening to in the car for the past few weeks. Anyway, for those of you that aren't hip, check it out! Anyway, here is one  of the many fine tracks from this smoking'
cd. Check it out!

This morning I was doing my typical Sunday chore which is to gas up both of the cars. Now for some reason this is something I have been doing for years. I religiously fill up my car and the wife's car so they will be full for the week. I think this goes way back to when I didn't make much money and made sure I would at least have a full tank of gas to get back and forth to work all week. Anyway, back to the reason for my post. As I was putting gas in my car I noticed the lady across from me washing her windows. No big deal I thought because people do this all the time. I finished pumping my gas, went to pay and then noticed this same lady was using the window squeegee on her hood and then the top of the car as well, and on and on it went. Having just come from washing my car I can say I didn't get this at all. I mean it's not a car wash lady. Jeez........people do the nuttiest things.

Yes, SAXOMAN is back! I know I've been slacking off with the blog lately but I still got plenty to say. OK, now you'll notice this blog topic of "Passing Gas in Public". No, no I'm not talking about myself although I have been known to silently slip out deadly fumes from time to time. No, I'm talking about people that just pass gas and let it fly with no regard for anyone in it's path. I mean, who does this?  Like a hurricane or a tornado, a deadly killer that can wipe out city blocks. HAHA! Now I write this post because SAXOMAN witnessed this first hand today. I was at the PCC Flea Market browsing the used cd's and dvd's and then all of a sudden I hear a loud, brrrrriiipppp, brrrrrrrriipppp, brrrrrrr. I stopped, looked up, horrified and looked around. What the ??? Are you kidding me??? Did I hear right? I looked around and I believe I spotted the culprit. An older woman who was asking if this dvd had Donny Osmond in it (Jeez, gimme a break!) Now there were a lot of people standing around and they all went on with their business as if nothing had happened. Me. no way I can let this pass can I? I stared at all the others hoping someone would look up and acknowledge this unpleasant act. No one moved or said a word. Now as much as I was tempted to say something I remembered the old saying "he who smelt it dealt it" Huh? So fearing I would get the blame somehow I kept quite and vacated the area as to avoid passing out from the noxious fumes. SAXOMAN was not amused.
