Thanks, Rue. Nothing like a little pressure for me to pound out this post…. how come I knew you would be the first one to post about our little outing yesterday? Okay, so I did start writing a post when I got back home yesterday, but then I got side-tracked
eating checking out some of the food goodies that I bought for myself the family. By the way, that caramelized onion spread is great on Triscuits!
Attention to readers- if you’re here on my blog for the first time, you are probably here because you linked in from Rue or Susie Q. I’m pretty new to Bloggy World, so I don’t have the multiple readership hits that they get. So until I get famous for my wit and stylish room settings- tee hee hee, it’ll make me feel popular (even if only for a day) if you leave me a comment…. so thanks in advance for making the trip over here.
Sue and Rue are two awesome bloggers that I had the funnest (I don’t think my journalism professor would say that is a word, but I kind of like the sound of it) time with yesterday on our little foray of shopping and eating. It started out as an adventure because Susie Q’s husband, who was once a Navy navigator, didn’t give her the right directions to where we were supposed to meet. I had taken along my GPS just for good measure, but not even that miraculous little tool could have led us to the correct destination if the correct address isn’t entered! Yup. Bill had given her the wrong name of the road, too. Sue, are you sure he has never gotten you lost before? LOL
Oh well, we were only a little ? late in meeting Rue, and I never once had a thought in the back of my mind that she might have
A. thought that we may have bailed on her.
B. thought that she thought she may be at the wrong place.
C. thought that she thought that meeting new people from cyber-space could be dangerous.
It all turned out okay, though. The other Sue and I apologized for our tardiness, we hugged, we laughed and commiserated, we shopped, and then we ate! Courtesy of Rue’s blog, you’ve seen Louella, the restaurant’s patron “saint.”
I think this is the farm’s resident cat. Cute, huh?
You’ve seen Rue’s lunch. You’ve seen her gifts. You’ve seen the tops of our heads.
Alas, I don’t have too many pictures to show because I was too busy eating--at the store and at the restaurant. When I see free stuff, I have a tendency to go a little nuts. I flitted from one sample to another while Rue and Sue spent time getting to know one another. I’m also sure that I had the freshest of breath after eating the multiple sample spoonfuls of the caramelized onion dips and the garlic spreads…. At the restaurant, Sue even had to take a picture of my prime rib sandwich because I was too busy chowing down to take out my camera. It might be posted for posterity on her blog. By the way, I got gifts, too. But I think you now know what I was doing instead of taking pictures……
( I changed the caption so people wouldn’t think Rue had gone blonde… It used to say, “Sue and Rue.” )
After lunch we stepped outside of the restaurant to pose for more pictures. I even took a few. Some guy drove by and honked at us, most likely wondering why three crazy women were hugging and laughing together like old friends do. And it was as if we had always been friends, not as if we had just met. It was a blast and the time went by so very fast. I would have liked to have had more hours to spend with these two girls. Thanks, Rue and Sue. We’ll do it again, and I promise that I’ll behave and won’t get us into any trouble. Really….
