Default Dinner At pamda's -- the Review

As promised and warned against, veal was not on the menu.

The chef (Queeg) prepared a delectable loin ... of pork, that is. He also vacuumed before we arrived, depriving Don of his favorite job at pamda's house.

I'm putting the cart before the horse. Let's talk about the CRAB !!!!

The creative mind behind the hors d' barked orders to the chef who expertly wielded the Cuisinart and whipped up a wonderful crab thingie. Devouring took place on the belevedere which overlooks the picturesque Shellpot Creek.

Veggie prep took place while downing/drowning in cocktails. Roast on, Queeg !!!

Cocktailing continued as did roasting of veg and potatoes.

No antlers were worn and both husbands professed not to be horny.

Tom The Cat survived my arrival, after I darned near killed him last time I was here.

Then there was dessert. How could pamda have read Don's mind and known his absolutely favorite pie is strawberry/rhubarb? But there it was. He is is heaven and looking for his antlers.

While we were desserting, CruiseAholic and Tony called. They were sorry to miss us, but CA needed to shop for Christmas ornaments for his trees.

Hmmm. Some people have strange priorities

It must be time to go back to the hotel so we thank pamda and the Captain for their gracious hospitality and the wonderful meal (yes it was much better than ship veal).

Now we are off to another small state, Rhode Island. If it's as much fun as DelaWhere, we may never come home.

Not much Internet access for the next few weeks, so try to hang in in my absence.

Sounds like you had a great visit! Did you find any pflamingos still hiding anywhere in the yard or house? There still has to be some left.

Mermaid ...

The gorgeous silver sea-tongs made their first official appearance last night alongside an assortment of roasted veggies. Thank you again.

All ...

A definite good time was had. Pat and Don rolled up in SuperVan bearing garden-fresh tomatoes, wonderful roasted Virginia peanuts, a gazillion limes and some darned nice red wine. Don shucked the corn, Mgram and I prepped the veggies whilst seated on the belvedere, and Andy did double duty as chef and bartender.

The stuffed phlamingo I hung from the chandelier to keep tall guys from taking off the tops of their heads is still in place. Don and I giggled all the way through dinner as we kept looking sorta THROUGH the phlamingo to talk to each other.

It is a well-known fact that Mgram and I are twins, separated at birth. Either that or we were victims of a mad scientist who split our brains and transplanted half to the other. Put another way, the husbands were in toleration mode at some of the mutual silliness. Andy looked at Don, Don looked at Andy. Finally one of them spoke. "What do you girls think is funny about slicing eggplants?"

I l-o-v-e listening to Don talk. What a luscious accent.

The phloating phlamingo candles that we phorgot about at the Phrolic made a guest appearance in the koi pond, making the koi nervous.

I can't remember one thing of importance that we discussed, but there was much discussion.

Wish you all could have been here. We totasted the whole gang.

My invitation must have been lost in the mail. But then, from the above description, it doesn't sound like it was much of a party ..

Regards,
Kuki.. who always has his antlers, and is always......

Cap'n Queeg,
Well, let's see... there's
1) Watch snow fall, watch snow melt, (repeat)
2) Take a walk in snow. Take a drive in snow... you get my drift.
3) Build an igloo
4) Build a massive igloo, then call it "Olympic Stadium"...
5) Have a parade in snow. Get your feet both cold and wet.
6) Hold a snow festival (there are several) to lure unsuspecting southerners
7) Encourage manly men to take up hockey
8) Encourage dubious men to take up figure skating
9) Sell 7 & 8 to the Americans
10) Open a hotel made entirely of ice. Convince Insurance Co. to underwrite.
11) Give American weatherpersons an explanation as to where the cold air comes from.
12) Explain to Americans why we have no interest in cruising to Alaska.
13) We need a reason to manufacture Ski-Doos.
14) Single-handedly support the economy of South Florida, Cuba & Dominican Rep.
15) Explain our Southern neighbour's odd behaviour to the rest of the world.

Busy little beavers, aren't we?
