T-Bones, BBQ, Tater Salad & Beer

Original post made by P-Town Dude, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on May 29, 2010

It's around noon, and I have been looking forward to today all week. The BBQ is out in the backyard along with my charcoal, lighter fluid and special cooking gloves. I bought a bunch of 2" T-Bones at Raley's; they are absolutely killer slabs of meat. I went to Cole's to buy my cold Corona tallees, and they're chilling in the ice cooler waiting for the right moment to slurp them down. So, why am I mentioning all this on the Town Square Forum. Well, I think we forget how well we have it. I was complaining this week about posts on the Square, cussing and spitting and stomping my feet about the absolute insanity of people when my college age daughter turned around and told me to chill out, that politics in Pleasanton is like a toothless tiger. Yes, there are real collisions going on in the real world, and Pleasanton is a reflection of those tensions. But she said to look out in the back yard and tell her that we don't have it good. I smiled and realized I was taking things too seriously on the Forum. I like Pleasanton. It's a little more rugged politically than I would like, but hey where in the world can peace and serenity find a home. I know, this is corny. It's not controversial. But we have a great town, I have some great T-Bones and the beer is just about the right temperature. Have fun out there everyone and count your blessings. I know that's what I'm going to do.
