    I Admit I’m a "Snackaholic"

    This actually comes to you from my aide, Terry. And it comes after a day in January where I was seemingly a bottomless pit. I could not stop myself. Every minute I kept thinking of snack foods. I must say that I never actually had lunch until after all the snacks. Then I had the brilliant idea to finish the Greek salad that I got from House of Pizza here in Gloversville, New York.

    I think I need to tell you my version of a Greek salad. It is basically iceberg lettuce with only cucumbers. NO peppers, tomatoes or onions. Over top of this I have the restaurant sprinkle Feta cheese, which is what makes it a Greek salad. Now, mind you, I don’t like cheese on most things I eat. Even if I have pizza, I make sure it isn’t a heavy cheese.

    Let me also give you another recommendation. Schwan’s Home Delivery Service. They not only have great individual pizza’s, but the rest of their menu is major high quality stuff as well. Herman and I regularly get their steaks and chicken. What’s great is that they are individually shrink-wrapped and they come frozen so they can go directly from the truck into your freezer. We’ve actually gotten some pasta meals, Mexican food and some breakfast items as well as their ice cream.

    I just glanced at the clock on my computer and realized it’s dinnertime, which is why I think I’m writing about food.

    Well, I never did get back to you guys that night after I went for supper, but I’m doing it right now which is right after brunch. So you don’t need to worry about me running off again for a snack (or in my case motoring off in my wheelchair).

    I’ve almost gotten my aide, Terry, involved in the whole snackaholic thing. But she has a much higher willpower than me. She usually only eats two meals per day--breakfast and supper.

    I want to make one final statement to you guys. Herman turned fifty-five last month, so until my birthday in April he is thirteen years older than me. Maybe I’ll get him addicted to snack food in his old age. But I must admit, he’s always been a snackaholic on his own.
