No concert but a great dinner

July 9th, 2017 at 05:32 am

We decided not to go to the outdoor fiddling competition yesterday afternoon as it was warm and humid.

But I had already made dinner reservations at a restaurant close by the fiddling thing. It was a place called Mamie's that only serves dinner on the weekends.

We drove out there and nearly missed it, even though I had pulled into the parking lot. I was looking for signs but didn't see any until I had turned around and was pulling out to leave. It's in the middle of nowhere, the kind of place you would love "discovering" if you were on vacation and just happened upon. It had more outdoor seating than inside. We ate outside in a very rustic setting. There was a shower but we had a small roof to keep us dry. The menu was very limited but excellent. Dad had steamed mussels, we shared some great gazpacho soup and we both had the ribeye steaks. No veganism for me when we eat out!

Here's dear old Dad enjoying the view.


After dinner we did stop in at the fiddling competition, which was still going on and it was just down the road. We rolled down the windows and could hear the music as we circled the parking lot. The signage had us exit a different way and it threw off my directions for getting home. We did end up getting a bit lost on the windy back country roads but we weren't too far off track.

Today is going to be a great weather day, a good day for some yardwork. I want to try to clear my blueberry bushes from bittersweet vines threatening to engulf them.

    Glad you had a great meal and could still hear a little of the fiddling.

    Cherish these days with Dad. My dad and I don't see eye to eye so these stories draw both sadness and happiness simultaneously. Bless you both and again, enjoy these moments!

    Out of the DArk, it made me sad to read your comment. My dad and I don't see eye to eye either (he's Republican, I'm not) but we've been successful just avoiding discussing anything remotely political. I've had my differences with my parents over the years. I urge you to give it another shot.
