It happened today! I got the heck outta Dodge! I left my house. I took a shower. I swept the avalanche-quantity of snow from atop Annabelle and drove downtown. It was good to be out in the bright light; the welcoming sunlight. Sis gave me some dishes to take to Mary’s Gourmet Diner and I drove them there.
One of the special things about Mary’s (besides the awesome owner and the delicious food) is the random eclecticism of its decor and ware. Odd sets of plates, coffee mugs and salt & pepper shakers are just one aspect of what you’ll find there. I went ahead and ate and made plate art whilst there. That was fun.
Then I ran over to Underdog Records because where else do I want to be? Nowhere, really. I just want records. It wasn’t a shopping day, though. It was a loitering day, although I did walk out with three $1 bin records and put some stuff back for tomorrow.
I came home after that and started listening to backlogged records in the “to be listened to” shelves. Let me tell you, Wichita Lineman from Glen Campbell and Quiet Sides of the New Christy Minstrels by New Christy Minstrels are both amazing records. If you’ve not heard either of them, you simply must.
Then tonight, we went to Mozelle‘s for dinner. We hadn’t been there for a few months and they have a brand new menu, so why not go now? Avocado hummus, chili-lime rubbed chicken salad and fried chicken. That was our dinner. Yum!
Bottom line today, I had gotten spoiled by having The BCPF here with me and able to yell up to her when I wanted to say something or ask a question, but I really enjoyed getting out of here and having a day to myself. Being out and about was awesome. I may have to do that again tomorrow, just with The BCPF. In fact, that’s exactly what we’re going to do.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
