The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Leggo My Eggo

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Leggo My Eggo

This weekend was great! The weather was awesome in the autumnal bliss of Alaska and I can tell that winter is in the air. The mornings are chilly and the days are getting shorter. We are losing day light at the rate of about four minutes a day now. Pretty soon it will be only light from 10 am to 2 pm each day.

On Sunday I woke up to watch football in my PJ’s. I am still having trouble with the Sunday NFL games starting at 9 am! So I shuffled downstairs, plopped down in my chair and turned on the games.

Wait a second… If I am watching football in my Life is Good flannel pants I might as well make some breakfast right? Just so you know, I hate breakfast. I hardly ever eat it and I have never figured out WHY anyone would want to make eggs and sausage and biscuits and gravy all all the fixin’s for dinner.

But I am living the bachelor life (at least until my wife comes up for a visit soon) and I bought some Eggo waffles at the grocery. I have not had Eggos since I was a kid and you know how it is… you pass things in the store and they look soooo good! They were calling my name…. So I broke down and bought a box of chocolate chip Eggos with a bottle of maple syrup.

I threw them in the toaster and waited for them to pop up. I poured syrup all over them and sat down to watch the game.

I could believe what I was missing! It brought back memories of getting ready for school on cold winter mornings. Mom in the kitchen and toons on the TV. Those were the days of Saturday morning cartoons, Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry.  The days of The Electric Company and 3-2-1 Contact! The days of the awesome toy commercials for junk that we just HAD to have. but one came to mind that I had forgot about…
