I found this in the Huffington Post. I'm still trying to figure out how you can truly mistake a newborn for a burrito. I understand that the burrito could be wrapped like a baby in a blanket...... or that there might be some tomato-based sauce on it .... but really, just how BIG was that burrito?
This weekend's weather was so lovely; just perfect for walking Pearl Street. So, after hearing Fr. Terry's talk on Merton's Palace of Nowhere, and doing a bit of Centering Prayer, Dear Husband and I went walking. We decided on BJs for lunch and first off, ordered coffee. It was your standard restaurant-fare coffee in a standard cup. Small and thick-walled, not much coffee in it. When we asked for refills, the waiter told us that he would have to charge us for another cup. WHAT?! No free refills? I'm glad he told us as we might have ended up with a huge bill just for the coffee. Folks, this was NOT good coffeehouse type coffee. This was the kind you'd get at a chain breakfast place. $2.00 for a little cup. And NO refills. I think we'll scratch this place off our list.
While out walking Pearl Street yesterday -- beautiful, sunny, warm winter day -- Dear Husband found a bead shop and brought home these beauties. He's getting prepared for retirement, I think........ I wonder what he's making? What do you think???
These two beautiful pets live on our cul de sac and have quite a game going. Tigger the Cat loves to stroll outside of Miss Della's home and tease her. Hmmm.. I wonder if I can get that dog to come chase me? Miss Della, always up for a game, takes off but she's no match for the fleet-footed Tigger. In fact, you can almost hear Tigger saying, "Oh, I'm so scared. Here comes that lumbering beast. Like she could really catch me?" And now they both seem to have staked out a certain spot in the cul de sac and claim the territory for their very own. Fortunately for me, it's right outside my front window so I can watch all the action! :-) Sure beats going to the movies.
Stayed tuned for more "Tails." And what goes on in your neighborhood?
