I started watching ‘Norm Macdonald Has a Show’ this weekend. Very funny.  It’s on Netflix…everything is on Netflix.

I’m a little concerned because I think America didn’t give Burt Reynolds a proper send off. My favorite Burt Reynolds movie? 1978’s ‘Hooper’, about Hollywood stuntmen. Also very strong is 1989’s ‘Breaking In’, about small-time criminals. How can I not mention ‘Smokey and the Bandit’? I was trying to be cool and not go the obvious route. I enjoyed Burt’s work.

Poison ivy update: Friday night I scratched my rash and some dead skin came off (I know, gross)…so, like an idiot, I scratched some more! It felt so good! Then I took a shower. Then I put on the ointment. OUCH! Not smart! But now it looks better and feels better. This is the last you’ll hear about my poison ivy.

Random thought: I could never have lived in the wild west because there was too much spitting.

Time for a new feature to BB.com, Bob Learns Something New Everyday. Today I’d like to know the French word for licorice. It’s réglisse.

Saturday night Cara and I had dinner at a local seafood shack. The outside tables were very low and the chairs were very high. It was funny. I was sitting there, hunched over my meal. I looked like Rodin’s the thinker (except I’m out-of-shape and eating a fried sandwich).

But the food was good. Cara had a lobster roll and I had a fried clam sandwich. I was going to get an oyster po’boy but the order taker said without mayo there’s not much to it. I hate mayo. I also hate yogurt and sour cream. I don’t know why my aversion is so strong. I will have an aioli but it has to have a strong flavor, like sriracha. Anyway, we had a fun little adventure.

I was thinking I was going to go for a bike ride on Sunday. Then I thought, what am I going to do, just ride around? Where am I going to go? There has to be something better to do. I don’t have a bike helmet. I should probably have one. Now I’m thinking about selling my bike. On second thought…I went for a bike ride after all:
