Life in Paradise...

Life in Paradise...  We woke up to rain this morning, and it's supposed to continue through Friday morning.  No working outside for Scott and I today...

Debbie and I went out to Angie's for breakfast today, and we each had a giant meal even though it was billed as simply “two eggs and ...”.  Mine included about a pound of hash browns, a thick slab of ham, and two (delicious!) biscuits and butter.  Debbie had cottage potatoes, Canadian bacon (two big pieces), and rye toast.  Stuffed to the point of near-immobility, we were.

Two tables away from us was an extra large booth intended for large parties.  Nine girls who appeared to be high school age were there, laughing, giggling, and generally having a great time.  With them was one adult woman, who looked a bit frazzled by the experience.  Those girls were very cute, though – especially when their “scones” arrived.  What Angie's calls a scone is a giant pancake-shaped confection about 14" in diameter, made of something similar to donut batter and covered with honey, cinnamon, and butter.  They are delicious, but they're ridiculously huge and quite evil.  These girls ordered three of them, with great excitement, and the managed to eat most of them.

After we left Angie's, I stopped at the Logan IFA to pick up some bird seed and spray for our lawn.  The fellow who rang me up struck up a conversation, and asked how my morning was going.  I said “Oh, great!  I just got finished having breakfast at Angie’s!”  Without missing a beat, he said “Oh, then I’ll carry those bags out for you.”, all very matter-of-factly, as though it was common knowledge that anyone who has just eaten at Angie's would be incapable of carrying something heavy.  And you know what?  I think that actually is common knowledge here :)
