Such is the siren song of Wild Idea Buffalo, which sells grass-fed buffalo meat. The company woos customers with pictures of bison meat smoldering on coals, dripping with juices. The price of beef is rising, Wild Idea Buffalo crows, and so hearty and heart-healthy buffalo is a bargain.
Their May Special is $17.95 a pound. And that's on sale! Kind of hefty if you ask us, and not enough to tempt us away from Scime's Sausage just yet.
Still, what a pleasure to see the words "Buffalo" and "healthy" in the same sentence!
The crowds of promenaders today at the Erie Basin Marina included this family of geese.
The geese purposefully walked a great length along the path -- at least from the Hatch to the battleship -- and didn't seem bothered at all by the people around them. But everyone stepped back to give them room.
Hahaaa... It is great how you can see the big birds' shadows.
Unforgettable, this notice for Lance Diamond at Milkie's, the old Elmwood Lounge. Let us cut and paste:

God love you, Lance, for sticking to that 11 p.m. start time after all these years! One gal we know who used to live in an apartment next door said you could set your clock by what time he went on, and what time he sang "Brick House."
Buzz likes to shop Main Place Mall. We get a kick out of their quaint signage, as well as the dollar store with the narrow aisles and forced togetherness.
Today we got to wondering what was upstairs, besides the historic food court. So we went up to find out.
We found the most marvelous thing.
It is free. It is a big looping track that just runs
the expanse of the mall. People were walking it, many of them wearing
sneakers with their office clothes. It is not like regular mall walking because there are no shoppers to get around.
And the greatest thing is, the sound system plays classical music! Today they were playing the finale of Schubert's B Flat Piano Trio.
But still, out of pure curiosity, we opened the list and had a peek. Park farther away from the door, OK, yeah, got that. Use the stairs, not the escalator, OK, we already do that.
These Calorie Count folks said that whenever you pass a bench, get down and do push-ups on it.
Hahahahahahaaa!! It is not Buzz laughing. It is all your fellow Galleria shoppers, shown above in a recent News file photo, who are standing around eating cinnamon buns and watching you do your pushups.
Other suggestions, so weird you could not make them up: Use fitting rooms for doing squats and jumping jacks. And ... and ... we can hardly type this because it is just so funny ... Bring along hand weights to carry in your bags as you shop.
We just read this one out loud and a co-worker is going, "Oh ... ow.... owww..." Now Buzz is laughing too so hard our stomach hurts.
