Boy, jkath, you are just the most in shape person in the cafe!! Have fun with that new class.

Crewsk, your grandmother sounds like a very precious lady. Do you still have her?

Yesterday, speaking of moms and grandmoms, was a tough one for me, since it was Mother's Day. The priest told us to thank our moms on earth, or in heaven if they were already there. I did okay 'til he said that, and then the tears came. I miss my mother so much. Lots of teardrops on the fiddle while I played the hymns.

Sure thing jkath! I'll be on the next flight out!

Their I am lucky enough to still have my grandma. I love her dearly & every moment I have with her I'm thankful for. She told me yesterday that she's got some more plants rooted for me when I'm ready for them. In a way I know how you feel too. I was doing OK yesterday until our preacher had michrophones set up at the front of the church & gave us a chance to tell our mothers how much they mean to us. I looked over at my dad & he was crying when my mom went down to tell my grandma how special she is. We lost my dads mom when I was in high school & we all still miss her greatly.

Thier - get out your violin! and bring your quartet friends! Quick! We need you!
Okay good - glad everyone is here
{psst....start playing - how about something from Vivaldi's four seasons.....how about Spring?...okay! Go!}

<<beautiful music playing>>

<<jkath unveils the newest part of our cafe, complete with cobblestones, a lovely outdoor fireplace (for warmth and for Alix to fire up the wood-cooked pizzas), lots of ivy climbing up the building, potted plants with many flowers, large ficus trees for shade, the large fountain, full of waterlilies, luminary lanterns swinging in the breeze and tiny white lights strung in the trees.>>

<<flipping the "on" switch>>
<<the fountain starts to trickling, the white lights magically turn on>>

Welcome!
I've made Monte Cristo Sandwiches for everyone, along with Zinfandel spritzers with strawberries.

(would someone please help me name this place?)

HOE? Heaven On Earth? Nope, that might raise a few eyebrows, how about Eden? Taken. Um.....The Arbor?

Pass one of those Monte Cristos my way, I'm starved!

Middie, when I think Sanctuary, I think of "she sells sanctuary" by the cult.
(I'm sure in her you'll find......the sanctuary....)

like "the arbor", but we'll still take some more ideas too

glad you guys like it.
You can thank Sushi for okaying all the goodies &
Bangbang for the use of his contractor & staff too.

It's lovely! I especially love the lights!

I'm playing The Little Rushlight and then we'll do Vivaldi. I'm bringing a small string orchestra for the occasion since we're doing Vivaldi.

For a name...I like "Sanctuary", too. Why let the Cult steal a perfectly lovely word??

How about "the Garden Room"?



What do you guys think of these beauties? We can make frozen drinks, including my favorite, Mojitos!

The Bower? am I missing something? (need more caffeine, obviously!) is that a coffee pot you have in your hand? May I have a cup or four?
