The temperature this afternoon in Murrieta was a sunny and warm 28°C/82°F with low 11% humidity and a gentle breeze of 5 mph. Typical San Diego weather for this time of year (early spring). In other words: just about PERFECT. A golden opportunity to pursue a plethora of decadent Afternoon Delights.
I sat myself down, on the patio, for an hour’s reflection with: three fingers of 12-year Glenfiddich Highland Single-malt Scotch Whisky, a C.A.O. Brazilia Gol cigar and a good piece of classic literature—in this case Robert Louis Stevenson’s (1850-1894) New Arabian Nights first published in 1882.
A good old dog (preferably a German Shepherd or Labrador Retriever) would have rounded out the experience nicely—but, alas, the dog probably would have wanted some of my Scotch (or a puff of my cigar). The book would have been safe (because everyone knows a dog can’t read) unless he wanted a chew-toy to occupy his time. I can’t think of a better way to pass an hour or two. Retirement is pretty GREAT.
Sounds like you know how to pamper yourself!
You did not mention having local Mexican food again!!
I’ve been out three times for local Mexican food but this particular afternoon I was just chill’n (by myself) on the patio of my son’s house. 🙂
