Mister had a rough Sunday.
He was good-natured about it though and stepped up when called into duty. Not being one to shirk responsibility he bravely stepped forward, well, not actually forward, as this was more like a "special ops behind closed doors" type of situation. . . (Not to be confused with "Secret Service" type duty. *wink *wink)

SANS A DOOR!!!
Really? Who EVER thought this
was a good idea????
but I was also creative and hungry.
I had not eaten all day - "nerves".
to buy food for his starving bride.
except to say, I may have been wearing a beautiful white negligee as we ate our burgers, and we have had great fun telling this story
over and over and over and over. . .

I waved my hands.
I did steps I had no idea I could do.
and collapsed onto the sofa.
I had sprayed all the porch furniture,
my new ourdoor cushions,
the shrubs (probably killed them)
and barely got away with my life.
My heart was beating like a
drummer at a rock concert,
and that's no exageration.
I don't have a brave bone in my body.

Edited to add the update to a previous post, "Mean Girls". My Granddoll received a call today saying "the pants came through the family laundry". Don't know if it was the daughter or the Mom who called, but either way, the pants have found their way home. Problem resolved.
Now, on to a much happier subject -

This post is the stark opposite of yesterdays post. Yesterday I talked of honesty by a complete stranger; today I talk of dishonesty by someone who was thought to be a friend.
Our oldest granddoll is 13.
She loves the glitz and glammor of make-up and fashion - nothing unusual for a girl her age. She also loves the Kardashians. She watchs their TV program and thinks they are "beautiful". When we asked her what one thing she especially wanted to see/do while in NYC she said she wanted to go to the Kardashian boutique, "Dash". So, we made a special trip to SoHo so she could "live her dream". She had bought some souveniers for her family but was saving her "mad money" to purchase something special from the boutique.
of a 13 year old.
(She even bought them a bit large so
she could wear them
for a loooong time.)

When I write I prefer to use the word "adventure" rather than "goof-up", even though there is a part of me which knows this is not correct. Let's just say that "adventure" seems to follow me with regularity, and leave it at that. . .
He could have pocketed
the camera and no one
would have ever known,
but he didn't.
and a great reminder that there
are good, honest, people
who live among us.

I don't really consider myself a full-fledged "Foodie" but I do find people's likes and dislikes of food interesting. I hope you do too. On our trip we had no plans for where we would eat. We were simply there to see the sights and eat "wherever" when it was mealtime. This is some of our "Favorites" and "not-so-favorites".
