Royal revisit

November 29, 2015 Sunday
6:38am Phil 
Been to the Chart House many times. It’s a favorite. Have to try the Cosmo

8:35am Phil 
Good morning! Been up clearing out storage since six while the princess sips coffee. Some days I really wonder. At least I am making the final trip, then breakfast and football!

9:23am

Good morning kid!

9:23am
 Phil 
Took myself to Bob Evans for breakfast

9:24am

Ooh!  I wish we had them here.

9:25am Phil 

Felt like pancakes and eggs, and the mere sight of the princess pissed me off this morning, so treating myself to me time

9:25am

Good plan. Busy there?

9:28am
 Phil 
Not bad

10:55am
65 years ago… amazing photos of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip revisiting Malta 


The Queen and Prince Philip bade farewell to Malta yesterday, perhaps for the final time. The three-day visit by the 89-year-old British monarch and her 94-year old husband included the biennial Commonwealth leaders meeting and visits to places around the island nation where they lived from 1949 to 1951 when he was an officer in the Royal Navy and she was a young princess. It was a sentimental journey that included a stop to view the Grand Harbour, echoing a moment captured in a photo 66 years earlier, in 1949.

12:59pm

The latest pictures of Princess Charlotte, taken by her mother, The Duchess of Cambridge, in early November at their home in Norfolk.

Good morning! More boxes today. Clearing the storage shed. Last thing to move to the house. 

Done something to my left hand with all this lifting. Afraid it’s a ligament or something. No time yet. Will get it looked at after everything is done. 

Have a beautiful day!

9:00am

Best of luck with the boxes.  I’m off to Mom’s as usual.  

Sorry to hear about the hand!  Ugh.  Pop by the CVS and get one of those hand ace bandages or velcro splints.  It can protect it from more damage while you’re carrying on?  and ice it down when you’ve having a cigar, stave off swelling.  Mwah!

9:08am Phil

Lunch with Mom at the Ninety Nine Woburn on a cold rainy day.  I had the turkey tips again!  


11:04pm
  

Another couple of restaurant recommendations from a pal in Alexandria… 

“Cosmopolitan Grill for excellent schnitzel and wine. For anyone wanting a fabulous date night or richly decadent dinner, they are perfect!”

Her other recommendation was the Chart House… the views are lovely.

Hiya Brett!  Thinking of you.  I walked on the beach in Gloucester today, wished you could see the sunset.  Here’s a sample.  Have a great weekend!

Beach instead of stores

Good morning kid!

9:01am Phil 

Good morning! Getting the house right today

9:01am  

Yay!  Yesterday go okay? Kitchen works?

9:16am Phil 
Yesterday was great!  Everything worked, plenty of room. 

Trying to get my wife off her ass to clear the counter tops.  She’s pretty much useless in that regard. Did find all those Pandora bracelets though. They were in her closet buried behind all her junk. That was like finding 1000s in a drawer. 

Hoping to clear my garage and build some shelves and clear storage today. Ambitious but doable and maybe a little time to set up my office with a scotch or two

9:17am  

You’re in Energizer bunny mode I see

9:29am Phil 

Got to get it done!

1:38pm
Beach weather! 


4:16pm

Late lunch at Lobsta Land in Gloucester.  So yummy! 

 Classic clam chowder
 Crispy coconut shrimp
 Paella
 Creme brulee

5:34pm

Sunset at Good Harbor Beach Gloucester #optoutside

7:23pm  

Hiya kid, How goes?

8:04pm Phil 

Got a lot done. Relaxing

8:05pm
Yay!

8:06pm

See my paella lunch?
Didn’t look as good as yours but it was yummy.

11:22pm Phil 

Looked delicious!

Nope! Staying home! I’m making a baked turkey and a smoked turkey breast, honey baked ham, green bean casserole, yams, mashed red potatoes, sausage stuffing, fresh cranberry sauce, mimosas for the cook and pumpkin pie for dessert.  Oh and of course creamed herring to enjoy through the day.

Wowzers.  What a way to test that new kitchen!

Kids coming?

2:02pm Phil 

Nope!  Just the two of us

Hey Sassie,
I’ve just about recovered from our last meeting.  
Stayed up late tonight to watch the game.  
I’m having a delightful colonoscopy on Wednesday so I will be distracted both tomorrow and Wednesday and I wanted to make sure I sent you a happy Thanksgiving message.  Ours will be low key with family and friends coming to our place.  Hope you have a great one!
regards,
brett

Re: Happy Thanksgiving
Hiya Brett!  
I heard the game ran late and it was totally worth it!  10-0!  Whee!  
A sore throat and sniffles caught up me last Thursday, so I spent 4 days stuck at home.  Lots of time to remember your visit.  Just made it back to the office today!  
Recovered?  Ha.  I’ve been watching videos and plotting how to make being a cowgirl easier.  And other positions.  🙂 
Ah… a colonoscopy!  Whee!  So happy to hear you’re taking the steps to be sure you’re healthy.  I always occupy my mind with what I can eat when I get done.  Too bad I can’t have fun with your oh so clean butt!  
I’ll be at my sister’s place as usual on Thursday with the entire family and her in-laws and a couple of local “orphans.”  I am so lucky not to have travel or cook!  I will certainly give thanks for the sexy man who has come into my life this year!  Hope you have a peaceful day at home!  
-Sassy

Eating so many good things…
 listening to your stories, 
introducing you to the secret dessert from the kitchen, 
that amazing old waiter… 
and a long kiss stolen in the rainy parking lot!
