Big Kosher Pickle!



My friend Cathie and I had dinner tonight at Cheeseburger in Paradise. Do you have those restaurants where you live? ( Named after the Jimmy Buffet song. )

Cheeseburger in paradise (paradise)
Medium rare with mustard 'be nice (paradise)
Heaven on earth with an onion slice (paradise)
I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise

I like mine with lettuce and tomato
Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer.......

Well, when this particular song started to play in the restaurant all the employees gathered round the bar to clap their hands and sing along. One brawny guy was especially fond of the BIG KOSHER PICKLE line. He just cracked me up!!

I had a festive drink with rum, fresh pineapples, and strawberries ... (Hey, keeping it healthy. Heh heh) The strawberry in my drink was wearing sunglasses. Very cool!


I`ve had headaches for 2 weeks now. I rarely ever get headaches until now. They feel like tension headaches, all around my head and down the back of my head into my neck. Help me!

I have some days off so I hope to catch up on journal reading. It`s been a very busy week here in my little piece of Ohio.

Thanks to Missie for the darling name tag!

Happy weekend.    :)

I'm glad you had a good time there with the fruity drink.  I've not heard of that restuarant before, but it does sound fun.  Hope that headache goes away for you.  That is a long time to have one.  Maybe you should check with your doctor.  I always go by the 3 day rule.  If it's not gone in 3 days, check with the doctor.  Thankfully, most of my aches and pains do go away before then.  It's been years since I've seen one for sure.

Take good care !  'On Ya' - ma

We don't have those restaurants around us but I wish we did.  It sounds like so much fun.  I used to get tension headaches quite often.  It does feel like a band around your head and terrible but I think I'd get it checked out because two weeks seems to be a little excessive.  Could be hormonal because when I started with the Big M, my headaches just disappeared.  Take care of yourself.  Love ya, Chris

Hi Penny....I heard that Jimmy Buffett is actually part owner of the restaurant.  Of course we have them here too...since I'm in Columbus :)

Don't have that restaurant here but wish we did. I'm not that crazy about Cheeseburgers but my older sister It is her favorite of all sandwiches.
As for pickles, I remember when I was a kid, able to buy huge ones out of a barrel for a nickle. YUMMY!
Hugs. ..and love too. Hope your headache went away. Tension headaches are horrible.

I don't think the idea of the staff singing to the customers would catch on over here. At least I hope it won't.

We don't have that restaurant here. Sounds like a great time you had!  I've been having headaches too. I think its allergies. That time of year I guess! Hope you feel better.

sounds like a fun time.  I think you'd better ask the doc about those headaches.  I used to get lots of them, but thankfully, not so much anymore.  Sometimes I do get sinus ones, and I could take a hundred advil to no avail, have to take something like Tylenol Sinus pills.  Try those.

No Cheeseburger in Paradise here.  :(  Sounds like a cool place.  I'll have to look one up on my next trip thru Ohio.
