It is 70°F and sunny.

We have been to church this morning and called at Wynyard gardens for lunch.

I hope everyone has a nice day.

Graham.

We called at a garden centre and bought some plants and when we got home Pauline put them in the garden and then we watered the gardens.

We went in the house for dinner and when I looked out of the porch windows a baby rabbit popped out of the conifers

Well, we made it home from AC in one piece and with winnings!  Charlie won a few jackpots on video poker so I will keep him.  Our host bought us dinner at Gordon Ramsey Steakhouse so it was a winning trip all around🍾

DH went to Foxwoods with his close friend Thursday night. He came home with over 1k in blackjack winnings. I quickly forgave him for being out so late 😉!

So I haven’t posted much but have been trying to keep up.  Bit of family drama here.  Youngest DD (28) has Ben dating a guy for about 2 years. He’s a real %#* - you can replace that with any word, pretty much any/all would apply to him. They’ve been on & off due to his antics but in January she broke it off and they’ve stayed apart.  Last Sunday she told us all she’s been seeing him again. DH & I are just heartsick that she can’t see his bs.  She’s beautiful, smart, has a great job, bought her own house 6 mos after graduating from college and so on. 
We all know it’s her choice, she’s a grown woman. Just very, very frustrating as there’s not much we can do.  
On a happier note, DH & I went to a Red Sox game last Wednesday - kids bought him tix for his birthday. We had a great night. And they were advertising the Billy Joel concert we have tix to in August so looks like it will be a go.

Do they still play Sweet Caroline (which is NOT about Caroline Kennedy) in the 8th Inning at Fenway?

 

Hope your daughter sees the light.  Mine did. 

 

Billy Joel.  One of my forever faves.  Something wonderful to look forward to!

It has been almost 2 weeks since we had any rain.

It seems like the Dallas area had rain, rain, rain for forever recently.  When not raining, humidity was too high to enjoy being outside. AND we now have to look forward to a usually brutal hot summer.  I can't complain.  I wore my down jacket approx. 5 times in 13 years.

congratulations! I just had my first dose too, super happy about it 😁

Great news.

When do you get your second vaccine jab?

Hopefully 3-4 weeks and not the 11 weeks we waited for our second vaccine jabs.

4 weeks (Pfizer) for both my husband and I. Mum & Dad had Astra and their wait is 12 weeks too.

 

My brother lives in Bristol and he and his fiancé have had their first dose too, I am so relieved my family will be all protected!

Great news your family have all had a vaccine jab and your second vaccine jabs are in 3-4 weeks.

I had Pfizer Pauline had AZ and it was 11 weeks for us in England.

What are your impressions? What did you have and do it recommend it?

 

I had Beef Wellington and it was excellent.  Charlie had filet mignon and said it was one of the best he ever had.  They are a bit pricey so having the check picked up was a nice perk.  The service is always good.  I think Harrahs old steakhouse was actually a bit better but this was good.

Somehow winning seems to make things better!

We have one at Harrah's casino here in Kansas City. I've been thinking about eating there. Thanks for your comments. They have a good menu but like you said a little pricey, but now a days what isn't.

I ate at Q39 midtown in KC. I have to say, I appreciated it.

When were you in KC? Yes Q39 is incredible. Rob Magee is an amazing chef. I remember him when we was winning a lot of BBQ competitions.

I’m a little shocked by a bottle in front of Pauline. It needs to be elegantly poured into a glass. 
Unless that’s malt vinegar. In that case, she doesn’t have to drink it.
