I’m in Mansfield, Texas….laying on Pam's floor, laughing at her while she is laughing at your blogs. We’re both logged into our computers, trading addresses of our favorite blogs, so, if you have a new commenter show up named MammaO, you’ll know from whence she came.
And the men in our lives? Are in the living room, playing Wii, having the time of their lives. They are funny. A Wii is absolute proof that you really never have to grow up.
It’s been a great vacation - we saw lots of friends, and made some new ones. MLH and I did our requisite Neiman-Marcus shopping – and before you think we be’s some high-rollin’ folks, we go there for one thing, every 4-5 years. Curious? Wondering what would make us pass through those gold-plated doors in our t-shirts and tennis shoes to hobnob with the ultra-rich? The super-elite? The uber-bourgeoisie?
Only one thing…a humble place setting.
We collect…single place settings. One of everything in the collection, from the charger plate all the way to the cup and saucer. And we did find a cool place setting to add to our collection, and some really rocking goblets (we bought 4 of those)! (Someday, I’ll take pix and show you – as for now, everything breakable is gently stored in bubble wrap outside in the trusty ol’ just crossed 90K miles Yukon XL.) We actually collected another place setting, of some cool Pfaltzgraff pottery, while we were in Terrell, Texas, on Friday. So, we’re two up for this year!
Tomorrow, Pam and I are heading to Hillsboro to meet one of her friends and maybe hit the outlet mall. It’s been great to just hang out and not have to worry (too much) about work. We needed a break.
Oh, yeah…. Lone Chatelaine – Girlfriend, Pam and I went shopping today for your “regionally appropriate” gift! I think you’ll love it…but there’s only one way to know, and that’s for you to send me your address so I can ship it to you!! Hint: it is fragile, so it needs to come to a safe stopping point somewhere!
Happy trails until we meet again!
