Coming right up. That'll be $9.95 CDN or $7.38 USD, don't forget to tip.
Pretty cheap compared to if you got that at restaurant.
I'll give ya a tip of 0.5% to make that an even tenner.

Biscuits for me......and some bacon gravy.

Poached ....three will do it.

Oh yeah! Hash browns! ..Or...red potatoes cut in round thin slices and fried...if it is not too much trouble....just leave the skin on, it makes it easier.

Looks better than my Aldi precooked bacon, but I can grab a slice of the Aldis and eat it right out of the package! ...which leads to a short Rupert Story.

I was in Aldis last week and the precooked bacon is on an end cap near the checkout. I grabbed a couple of packs ($2.49 each) and threw them in my cart. A middle aged woman was standing by me in line and asked if that bacon was any good? I told her "Yep, I like it and it is fast and easy, thin sliced and stays nice and flat with very decent flavor and nice texture. I went on to mention that sometimes I just grab a slice and eat it out of the package as a snack. Really, she asked? Yep, I wouldn't lie to you!
She grabbed a box, opened it, pilled out a pocket knife and cut open the plastic wrapper and pulled out a slice. Ate it up!!..... and turned to me and said "you're an honest man!" She grabbed two more packs and I let her check out ahead of me.

In other news ......My Mom is going shopping......the Amazon I bought her at 774.55 is now 1013.00 this morning. 300 shares......she can shop all day and all night too! Mrs Rupert is not doing bad either.....she paid a little more for hers but still has a very "shopworthy" gain this morning!

Got a Doc visit this afternoon. Maybe there is daylight? For the first time in weeks I woke up this morning and can breathe well without any inhaler or help. I feel at least half decent and fed the animals without discomfort or strain. Gotta go easy....it is probably a quick step backwards if I get too energetic and get out and about.

Regards!

How do you want your eggs cooked?
Over easy, on top of the taters please.

You want hash browns with that?
Of course. Extra crispy.

I'll mow your lawn as payment. Probably should get 7 days of breakfast for that though.

I have plenty of chocolate girlfriends.

Mrs. Rupert doesn't mind though, and never gets jealous, because I always save the finest Swiss chocolate for her.

And we lived happily ever after.





Yep, I wouldn't lie to you!









Regards!
Now that's a great Rupert story.

That's probably one of the best Fords out there (including trucks and cars...)...

Leave it to you to take 3 posts out of context and create an interesting item.
Thanks!!

Wait...

Are you saying I should start in the news industry?

Sure, as of tomorrow I don't have a job, but I'm not that desperate

According to this morning's news reports. A worker, authorised to be in there, accidentally pulled a plug and then turned it back on, without going through the full proper reboot process. Estimates of the cost are about GBP100,000,000. Would have been cheaper to make their IT system much more robust..
A single server with a single power supply for a service that'll cost you a hundred million quid if it goes down?! How's that even possible?

Mind boggling.

You never know. It may be the next multi-billion dollar venture.

Well even with a low 4.5% unemployment rate, it is on the rise again. You need to have all bases covered.

I'm an over easy guy too.
Mom used to fry them in bacon grease and used a spatula to flip hot grease over the tops, still the best I've ever eaten.

Really, I am, trust me!

It's slightly lower here and looks to be heading further down after a peak at nearly 5% a bit over a year ago. And I was going to say that I'm not too worried but I was interrupted by a phone call from a potential employer that had heard rumors about me being cut loose. I'll have a chat with them next week. They must be pretty desperate

I don't like runny yolks at all, so always over hard.
But I also liked poached when they are cooked to a solid yolk.

But you talk as if the two are somehow related
