Whazzup Here

Okay, so my litttle camera phone doesn't capture the close up crap I want at times, but these two photos bring back such a good day memory that I had to post 'em. Ann Wesley Hardin flew down (on her broom) from East Coast to be with her sister, the fabulous Jane. The 3 of us went to lunch - with Ann driving Jane's big ole van. We stop at a Mexican restaurant next to a shop called called Beer Cave Wine & Spirits, and...

* * *

Ann being the Bat Dame, naturally we had to take a photo of Ann and Jane beneath the sign.

* * *

One thing...Jane has a funky alarm or something on the key fob, and Ann kept triggering it every time we'd enter or exit the damned van, and I caught a shot of Ann trying desperately to shut off the alarm before somebody called the cops, thinking we were robbing the liquor store.

* * *

Ya just had to be there. Jane bought my lunch - Ann provided entertainment - I provided the feed-me-fix-me project for the day.

* * *

Why neediness? OMG - we have a WEDDING coming up in this family, and do you have any idea how long it's been since I've been around GIRLS, much less BRIDES? Lots to do. The Girl and I spent morning at tailor's getting gown altered and a bustle working. She and The Boy are tasting wedding cakes and shopping for flowers this afternoon while I prepare a nice big salad or two. (Couldn't make up my mind - garden salad or potato salad, latter of which nobody but me likes - couldn't decide, so I'm making both.)

* * *

I'm in love with my community. I'd like to have spent the entire afternoon wandering downtown. We have a large clock tower and Farmers' Market with fresh fruits & veggies. We have sidewalk cafes where folks were outside listening to live bands at the Market. There are shops galore, craft stores, furniture stores, everything from a Russian luncheon type bistro to a Harley bar & grill, where bikers from umpteen states were outside having a grand ole time.

* * *

Ann's only been gone a week, but I miss her already. Thanks for the lunch, Jane - thanks for the fun, both of you.

* * *

I'm off to pamper myself - a shower, bit of reflexology, manicure, pedicure, maybe a facial and an herbal wrap. Grilled steaks and potatoes for supper to go along with my 2 salads - lol. Maybe some carrots and homemade sweet bread. I make killer bread, if I do say so.

* * *

I've spoken with Cosmo about the article - still no word for certain. Did a set of edits last week and have TWO more staring at me for this week. Which is good - it means books coming out soon. Submitted 2 manuscripts to TPTB who may or may not shoot me down, but I gotta try.

* * *

Yep. Today is pampering day. I may even bake doggie treats for my pooches so they can feel pampered, too. They like my Peanut Butter Paws.

* * *

Have a great weekend, folks.

Ann flew in on her broom! LOL - Has she seen that yet?


Sounds like you've been busy. I Love potato salad. Can never have too many hard boiled eggs in it, n'est pas?

And a wedding. How fun!!!!

A day of pampering sounds good. I've always wondered about the benefits of reflexology - just might try it.

Best of luck with Cosmo.

Sounds like a good time was had by all. Too funny about the alarm.

I need a day to relax and pamper myself. Maybe next week - you'll have to go read my blog to understand, but this weekend will be a LONG one (and not just because it's Memorial Day)!

Have fun with the wedding. It sounds exciting. Are the kids excited? When is it?

Will post recipe SOON, Mer. No, Ann hasn't seen post, Sam - that's what she gets for having a life and not reading others' blogs. *smirk* And OUI on the boiled eggs in potato salad - lol.

*waves to Beth and Denise* I highly recommend the pampering if you can get a good reflexologist.
