Country Roads, Take Me Home

WOKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING and had our breakfast at Star Dust Casino restaurant, just five minutes drive away from our hotel, Silver Legacy.  The breakfast meal is only around $4.99 per person and it comes in a complete set... each of us took one set though I am surprised at myself that I could finish one whole meal by myself!!  American Breakfast... never before I ate such a Big Meal... Since there were six of us, they gave us a private room...

After our heavy breakfast, we went for a day trip to Virginia City, an old cowboy town famous for its gold mine those days.... and on the way, the song Country Roads came to my mind....Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains.. Shenandoah River.....
Our all time American Breakfast.... 
My order is the first top left... Nice?
And our journey started... from highway to the mountains...
Passing residential houses on the way....
And going UP and UP....
Very high UP in fact....
Taken from the moving car...
And we stopped half way to breathe in the scenery....
We followed the cyclist down the steps.... 
Going to the edge of the mountain....
To capture this scene from the top...
The man who built this.... 
Dr. D.M. Geiger.... 
I have to be very careful though.... cannot afford to slip....
Yes, I need some assistance to go up the steps....to the very top!
Blue Ridge Mountains..
The wind was really strong...
\
That was the highest I could go.... 
The wind was heard howling... 
And I quickly went down the steps before I get blown away...
If Not for the heavy American Breakfast, I Might be blown...
LOL....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
