The Day After and the Day Before

Some of you know that Linda’s birthday is 2 days after mine.  Hence the title of this posting.

We started the day a little slow.  Linda & Maggie walked, I read the paper and checked the email.  It was overcast with a chance of rain.  And then it all blew over, the sun came out, and we decided to run errands.  I dropped Linda at Arrowhead Mall in Glendale, then I went to the car wash to clean up all of the grit we accumulated on our way back from SoCal.  Then I stopped at the Honda dealer to have a rattle checked.  Not a good idea, after 15 minutes of waiting for them to look at I left.  Maybe another day.  By then Linda was done, so I picked her up and we headed back to the MoHo.

We had previously decided to celebrate our birthdays with a good dinner today, the in between day.  We narrowed down our choices down to 3 different venues, Amuse Bouche, a small French restaurant, Bayrischer Hof, a new German restaurant, and the Kokopelli Winery Bistro.  Guess which one we choose????? Well, the French restaurant was very small in a strip mall, and it was very expensive for dinner, so we’re going to save it a good lunch.  The German restaurant is new, and it doesn’t have a lot of ambience, so we’ll save it for a less important day.  That left the Kokopelli Bistro.

The Kokopelli Bistro is part of the largest winery in AZ.  They have an outlet in Chandler where Jeni lives, and a smaller outlet here in Surprise.  We invited our good friends Bob & Maggie to join us.  The bistro was decorated very nicely.  And it was wine Wednesday, $5 off all bottles of wine, & $3 off all glasses.  So we started off with a nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon for us to share.  It was surprisingly good.  A touch of oak, lower alcohol, smooth finish.  Nice wine.

The restaurant is know for its slow cooked entrees.  Pot Roast, Pork Roast, and Garlic Chicken.  Everyone ordered the pot roast with mashed potatoes, except me.  I ordered the crab cakes appetizer.  It was all very good.  And we had no room left for desert.  We plan to revisit this fine restaurant to try other entrees in the future.

So that was our in between day.  Pretty neat!

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
