"I'm sure you could afford 'lobster' every now and then. I haven't had lobster in a long long time.... had a lobster roll maybe a year ago..... but we have a Red Lobster around here but I don't go.....and you could afford good meat cuts......."

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Funny, but when I think about eating lobster, I do not think about the
"Red Lobster" chain. I sometimes think about the Outback" chain - but
more frequently I think about driving up to New England. Especially now
that I am retired officially. Outside of doctor's appointments, work around
the house and errands - there is no pressing reason DW and I cannot
hop in the car and go for a few days.

I am less inclined to drive to eastern Pa if I get in the mood for a
Philly steak.

The only reason I do not drive up to Maryland more often - for Maryland
crab-cakes - is because of the family being up there - and telling them
that DW and I were there but did not stop in would create an upset
situation. The world does not need more reasons for upset situations.
