On the home front

It took us a while to get over the flight home from Rome. We both felt bad for several days and most say that is expected. Didn't have trouble going over, only coming home.

I have mentioned our favorite restaurant here at home many times....


We go here at least two times and week and of recent three. There are many other people that come often too and you recognize them even if you don't know their names.....In order to refer to these people we tend to give them pet names. There is one couple we see every Sat. night and we call him Magoo because he has real squinty eyes..


and a great dancer. We have often wondered what names other people have given us. I always thought it might be "The cowboy and the lady"  but I got a surpirse recently when Isabella (the owner) shared a letter she had received from a patron that comes only in the winter and this is how she describes me......"Monica is the lady that dances barefoot with her husband with the cowboy hat". Never thought my dancing barefoot would be a claim to fame but first night dancing after we got back I zigged when I should have zagged and this is the results.....


 a jammed toe...ouch! Beleive it or not this is the first time in all the years I have dances barefoot that I have done this.....hmmmm. Maybe I am losing my touch.

 One of the Karoke ladies took some pictures of hubby's surprise birthday celebration and shared them with me............................

 Looking good at 70!!!

Definitely, looking good at 70, and enjoying life, too.

I love that you dance barefoot. Do you dance in the rain, too?

Okay I am so sorry about your toe.

But this is the first picture I can remember of you and your hubby.

Happy birthday to him.

You both are beautiful.

Before the chef at our favorite restaurant knew our names she always referred to us by the chicken dish we often ordered. My husband had no special requests on his, but I always ordered my grilled chicken without the skin. We became known as "Skin and No Skin." :)

That is a grand photo of the two of you. His hat is his signature clothing and I think that is great. The first thing I thought when I saw the foot was "We use the same color of nail polish." Then I saw the jammed toe and you were still tried from your trip that was the reason for the misstep. Keep on dancing as it keeps you young. Peace
