Slow Day

I’ve not much to say today. Think of all of the things you can accomplish now!

Last night I was a stud in The Colonnade. Not only was I at least ten years younger than the average male having dinner, I was the lone male sitting at a table of seven. As a further oddity I was the only non-former Turner employee at the table. Most of the women at the table had been laid off, though some also left on their on accord.

My meal consisted of chicken fried steak, mac and cheese, Brussels sprouts, and too many rolls/mini-cornbread. The chicken fried steak was different than any that I’ve had previously; the meat was a solid steak and not a piece of pounded, or ground beef as is normally the case.

Tonight I’ll be making my way to Decatur to meet up with Tamara and Diane, and a couple of other friends of mine that I’ve not seen in ages.

Have a great day, friends!

    I’m guessing Tamara is the one sitting closest to you?

    And of course you were younger than most people at the Colonnade – that’s what makes the place even more fun!
    We took my parents & Allan’s parents there a couple years ago – it was entertaining.

    (and Stacy – I ate the lonely 2nd pop-tart this morning)

    Good morning from Lexington. Yesterday, a tour of Ashford Stud Farm, where American Pharaoh stands. Debbie did go all fan-girl, but it was interesting. For a mere $200k, he can give your mare a foal. So far, none have dropped yet (11 months) and he only went into “business” earlier this year.

    Today we’ll find some bourbon to tour and as I told Debbie years ago, for our 10th anniversary, we’re going to Paris. This wasn’t the original plan, but will have to do. Stay tuned.

    I’ve never been to the Colonnade. I suppose we should remedy that while we’re still young enough for it to be hip instead of aging into regulars status.

    Glad that lonely pop tart is lonely no more.

    I went high end on snacks for this trip. It’s our anniversary after all. Chocolate Pop Overs, dark chocolate almonds, chocolate covered peanut butter with sea salt …. hmmmm chocolate … and cheddar rolls! And my answer to Twizzlers is Swedish Fish. We’ve got some of those too.

    Thankfully we’ll be doing some major walking over the weekend to semi-counter the snack fest. Off we go to Paris!

    Our 10th anniversary wasn’t very exciting, Allan worked. We did have a party the next day. 11th was a Spring Tune Up & then Sushi with Steve & Debbie. 12th – not sure. 13th – the Masters with Steve & Debbie. (seems to be a theme) And – I know Steve, maybe this weekend I’ll get those pictures off the camera – I have to do some work from home, so I’ll actually turn on the computer.

    Our actual anniversary was pretty low key, but we’re making up for it now. It appears the trend is that we celebrate our anniversaries together on the odd years. We need to start cooking a 2017 plan.
