Lobster Aphrodisiac / Afrodisíaco De Langosta

I'VE READ THAT some people consider lobster an aphrodisiac. Here's another 69th birthday painting by Luke (and Kathleen) for San Geraldo. And another poem/limerick.

San Geraldo and I have been both down with a cold at the same time. It's the pits. Neither of us is showing real signs of recovering, although he's at least able to go out for brief stints, which means he can pick up things like wonton soup. I haven't been out of the house since Monday. We missed a special Valentine's dinner at Mesón Salvador last night. Alejandro even created heart-shaped after-dinner drinks (they looked like gummy candies). I hope he saved me one!

HE LEÍDO QUE algunas personas consideran que la langosta es un afrodisíaco. Aquí hay otra pintura de Luke (y Kathleen) para el cumpleaños 69 de  San Geraldo. Y otro poema.

San Geraldo y yo hemos tenido un resfriado al mismo tiempo. Son los "pits" (como la mierda). Ninguno de nosotros muestra signos reales de recuperación, aunque al menos puede salir durante breves períodos, lo que significa que puede recoger cosas como la sopa wonton. No he salido de la casa desde el lunes. Nos perdimos una cena especial de San Valentín en Mesón Salvador anoche. Alejandro incluso creó chupitos con forma de corazón (parecían gominolas). ¡Espero que me haya salvado uno!

Demonios. Sin preocupaciones. Es divertido solo anhelar.

      The wonton soup from downstairs has done the trick (several times this week). Getting better.

  2. Happy 69th Geraldo. Keep eating chicken/wonton soup and you'll be better in a few days, I'm sure.

      We're both showing signs of recovery. I finally went out for a brief time today and ran into a number of neighbors. They had all also been sick all week and are just starting to recover.

      I love the paintings Kathleen did with Luke. Luke has a ball and obviously so does Kathleen. So creative.

  5. A Blue Lobster Original! Wish I were that creative. Wonton soup has always been my first choice when I have a cold. Hope it you find it soothing if not curative.

      I know. Kathleen comes up with the best ideas. She says it's because she's a teacher, but I know plenty of teachers who don't think like this. She's got a gift. The wonton soup has been wonderful this week... And chocolate ice cream.

      I would love to see your lobster bowls if that's of ever of interest to you to blog about. I do love the artwork Luke (and Kathleen) have created for us.

      The wonton soup from our new Chinese restaurant downstairs was a huge help all week. I could probably have lived on it... but San Geraldo makes me eat balanced meals!

  11. Perhaps you should try some wanton soup...

  12. I am so sorry to hear that you are both feeling so yucky -- but, that sunrise the other day was certainly fabulous!

      We had a few fabulous sunrises this week. I'm so glad I got pictures of that one. The past three days were springlike. I finally got out for a bit today. Not a very long bit. But a bit.
