Today dawned much brighter. Silver dollar "World's Fluffiest Pancakes" and a game or two.
If you have never played Ticket to Ride (especially if you love trains) check it out - Mom and Dad say it is VERY fun, and can be quite competitive.
But then, Mom's best friends came over! We hadn't seen them since Christmas time and I missed them all so much. MC and Frances and their fellas, who are both engineers like Dad and our great friend M., who has been best friends with Frances's husband since they were little kids ALL met us to spend the afternoon.
It's MC! It's MC! Mom's best friend! Angel Barkley had many grand adventures at their country home with their rescue cats and Angel Schmoe the Lab before Mom met Dad.
Everyone started with appetizers - fried pickles, corned beef bites, and fried cheese curds in beer batter, but Mom forgot to take pictures as she was so hungry as they didn't eat lunch until almost 3 pm.
Don't forget the doggie bags!
Back at the house, I got supper and more pets, and playtime with my stuffies, then more pets before it got dark and everyone headed home.
I am so happy you all visited. Please come back - I love you.
