Stranger Than Fiction . . .

We met our friend Tricia up in Pasadena this afternoon at the Pine Street Café which is part of a Wedding and Event Venue called Silver Sycamore. With a rustic look it also includes a hotel and saloon, as well as individual cabins as part of a Bed & Breakfast.

A really neat place.

And a really good café, too.

Jan and I started out with a serving of their Baked Potato Soup.

I actually liked the flavor of it a little better than Gator’s version, but the texture was strange. Rather than chunks of potatoes, it just smooth, with the texture of Cream of Wheat.

Tricia got their version of Eggs Benedict with roasted potatoes.

Looked really good.

Jan got the Grilled Turkey and Sautéed Spinach Sandwich with Provolone Cheese,

while I went with the classic BLT.

All really, really good.

Coming home, we dropped off an Amazon return at the FM646 UPS store. No box, or packing. Just walk in, hand them the item, they scan the QR code and hand you a receipt. Then about 5 minutes later, I got a text saying the cost had been credited to my Amazon account.


I was happy to see how well the Jeep ran, my first time driving it since the repair. And I don’t know if it was just wishful thinking, or the new O2 sensor, but it did seem a little peppier.

I’ve mentioned before about what a great artist our grandson Landon is. Brandi texted us this photo this evening showing his latest masterpiece.

A family on their street brought home their new baby today and found this chalk drawing on their driveway when they got home.

I told Landon he needs to always sign his artwork.
