A Visit From Amy and her Gals

Lifelong dear friend, Amy, drove down from Newbury (childhood hometown) with her 2 children on Friday.

They picked me up at Ric’s while he was at work.  We checked into the Holiday Inn Express about 5 miles away.

Great price, great room, great pool, great location.  We had a view of a cornfield, which was loaded with Canadian Geese and rabbits.  The snowfall topped it off!

Ric picked us up when he got off of work.  We went to a really cute place, Mimi’s Cafe.  He thought I’d like it because of the New Orleans theme.  Like I said, “cute”.  Period.  I’ll never return.  Nevertheless, we had a very fun evening.

We awoke Saturday morning to a surprisingly nice breakfast buffet.  Eggs, meats, yogurts, cereals, breads, the works.  Yummy.

Spent some time in the pool, then hopped in Amy’s car and went to Toot’s for a pitcher of beer and nibbles for the little ones.  This joint is maybe 1/2 mile from Ric’s place.  Have been stopping here for years.  Fun place.

Later that night, we caught a cab to my favorite local Mexican restaurant, Abuelo’s

Had a wonderful dinner, margaritas and an uneventful cab ride back to our hotel.  (This was Ursula and Elsa’s first taxi ride!)

More snow, a little television, then awoke Sunday for another nice breakfast and sad goodbyes.

Spent the day with Ric watching football all day.  ‘Twas a lovely weekend.
