Take Away 106 - Timing

Yesterday we rolled out on an impromptu road trip. We literally did not know which way we were going until we dropped off the key to our house for a friend to let our dogs out as we knew we were going to be gone longer than just a couple hours.  No time to make breakfast so we grabbed a couple of boxes of crackers, fruit and thermos of coffee, knowing we'd stop to eat somewhere along the line. As it turns out, we headed right through The Dalles and our most favorite Thai restaurant. It was lunchtime when we rolled in.  "How fortuitous", as Gene would say. I tried the "house curry" and it is to die for!

TAKE AWAY:  Good things come to those who have good timing.

Take Away 105 - Picnics

We attended a concert last night. I loved it that we were able to take a cooler in along with our chairs and enjoy a nice picnic dinner. I don't know why we don't do that more often. I bought a special sized cooler just for this event. My plan is to use it as often as I can.

TAKE AWAY:  I don't have to wait for a special event to pack up a picnic and ask my sweetie to take me for a ride.
