So, I experienced my first earthquake today! In Buffalo, of course. Yeah, yeah – if yer from California, pipe down… I know a 5.0 doesn’t even register in your mind. It was actually quite cool – the building shook and the windows rattled a little. At first, we thought a construction crew was working on the building. Then, everyone started buzzing about ‘the quake.’ It wasn’t too crazy, and some people didn’t even feel it. I’m not going to go out and get t-shirts made or anything, but my earthquake cherry is now popped… I have my Hurricane badge… all I need now is a vendetta Twister and maybe some strike-Lava.
This happened right after I finished my lunch at Ulrich’s Tavern in Buffalo. They told me I needed to order the potato pancakes – so I did! (shh… don’t tell my wife)
Yeah… they really looked and sounded better than they tasted. That’s the ‘short stack’! Of course, I’ll eat a potato any which way, and I did enjoy a few bites… but, I only got through one of those suckers before I had to quit… yeah, I’m just as embarrassed as you are to know me at this moment.
Tomorrow I leave for home and for a week of camping! Can’t wait to maroon my cell at home and get back to some basics. Life is too busy, need to find a way to slow it down. Workin on it… workin on it…
