Do you remember that song by the Carpenters? Well, that's my song for today. Mondays are bad enough, but when it rains, yech!! How was your Mother's Day? We had a good one. The brunch was OK, nothing earth-shattering. The salads were the best ever. But the meat left a little to be desired. Prime Rib - fatty; turkey - little flavor; roast pork and stuffed chicken breast were pretty good. In fact, SIL Jimmy, who isn't a big prime rib fan, said he ate more off the kid's buffet than the adult's. They had popcorn chicken, pizza bites, and mac and cheese. But, what he really said that he did was just eat $25 worth of desserts. Oh gosh, they were good. Chocolate cake, tiramisu, apple and cherry pie, and coconut cream pie and more.
Have you ever seen a stretch hummer? I hadn't until yesterday. I think the regular hummer is ugly, but this takes the prize. There were what appeared to be 4 daughters with mom and grandma who showed up for brunch in one of these. All were dressed up and had on high heels. One lady nearly fell getting out, and the first lady out of the limo stood in the doorway taking photos of all the others as they disembarked. (Well, they should have had a gangplank!) Just as we were ready to leave, the sky opened and dumped the heaviest rain of the weekend on us. I was outside holding the door for two little old ladies with walkers when this gas guzzler arrived, and I was stuck holding the door for the photographer and all her subjects with narry a thank-you. The "limo" was so big that there wasn't room for it to park in the lot, the driver went across the road and parked in the empty lot of the church there. But while the passengers were getting out, the drop-off area was completely blocked, and I'm sure there were a lot of rain-soaked people saying not-so-nice things about this alien-craft (We here in the country don't see thangs like this everyday!!) when they finally got to their waiting cars. But we had a good day, and now there's just 5 more days until the weekend. Hopefully it will be sunny and warm. Linda
