Shoes & Supper

Last night John was away, in Ketchikan. My favorite shoe store had a late shopping night for their customers complete with wine and discount coupons.....what can I say? I met my good friend Joan at the store, and our good friend Lori was purchasing these fabulous shoes in BLACK and lo and behold they also came in a very swell RED.....I wore them out to dinner with Joan. We went to Zephyr, one of a couple of newish places with a good wine selection. Decided to split a dinner salad (the Zephyr, mixed greens with grilled asparagus, fried pancetta, and a nice balsamic vinaigrette, quite tasty) and a plate of pasta (the Aegean, with dried tomatoes and olives in goat cheese I think, also very good) and a bottle of Zardetto Prosecco. This often happens when I go out with Joan. We had a lovely dinner, got caught up on her kids, our kids, etc, except I got rowdy and was shouting across the room to another friend who came in on crutches, consequently disturbing the conversation at the dinner table between us. I blame the shoes.

Yea, good thing I am usually around to make sure the family party animal does not get out of control.

Ren, I don't know if you are old enough to remember the time she threw a bar stool through the window of the Rendezvous.

I don't remember that either.

Are you sure it wasn't the Lucky Lady?
