We were supposed to meet last Tuesday but Mother Nature had other ideas...a big ice storm instead, so Constance and DH (Kim) and I postponed our luncheon date.
Today was a completely different story. We had a beautiful, clear and warm day. I didn't even wear a jacket. 'Cept it was windy as all get out. So glad I brushed my hair. By the time I got home it looked as if I'd done it with an eggbeater.
We met in Paducah, kind of a halfway point for all of us. We hadn't decided ahead of time where we wanted to eat, just that it would be in the restored area of downtown. We had lots of choices and ended up selecting a new Argentine restaurant.
The restaurant was beautiful, the food was awesome and the service was impeccable. The best part of all was the "visiting" we did during our meal. We talked and talked and talked and....
While Kim went to the restroom after lunch, Connie and I were treated to a private tour of the second floor dining room. Beautiful.
After we ate, we went back near the downtown parking area, where our vehicles were, and sat on a park bench and...talked some more. We took pictures and I'll post as soon as I can figure out how to get the photos from the camera to the computer. I'm pretty sure Connie will do it before I do. (I hope so. LOL)
I had such a wonderful time and felt as though I'd known them for years. Connie is just as sweet she seems on our DC boards and her DH, Kim, is a peach, too.
When it was all said and done, we spent about 3 great hours together. I left with a full (no, make that stuffed) tummy and a beautiful strawberry-scented candle they gave me. What a treat!! We'll get together again, for sure. Especially since Kim is a barbecue cooker.
Thanks Connie and Kim for a memorable day! Love you both.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
