One of three things usually happens here on a Saturday. My buddy and I visit Cheryl at the bar, or I participate in Linda G. Hill’s intriguing Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenge. On rare occasions, I skip both for what I once would have called a “normal” post. Not today.
Cheryl has the day off so she can cook, roast, bake, fry, barbeque and otherwise prepare her Christmas feast. Oh, look, I managed to sneak the SoCS challenge in. Hey, Linda always says to “have fun.”
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “cook.” Find a word that means “cook,” (or use “cook” itself) and use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
Less fun, perhaps a bit more serious, I wanted to share with you my favorite Christmas commercial. This is from Eat’n Park restaurants, which are in and around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This 30-second commercial is so simple and so nice, that it has been aired annually for over 30 years! It’s so special that some people in my old home town believe that the Christmas season doesn’t start until this commercial is shown on the air. Toward that end, Eat’n Park publishes a schedule of when the commercial will air. This is the 2016 schedule, which won’t be useful much longer.
I love this commercial. Even though it has a distinctive Christmas theme, I think the message is one that anyone, regardless of religious affiliation or even those with no religious affiliation, can appreciate. Please, watch the commercial, check out Linda’s prompt if you want to participate or if you want to see the work of those who did.
Merry Christmas and / or Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate. If a religious celebration isn’t in your plans, I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I’ll see you back here on Monday
