Ain’t No Sunshine

Mike and Peggy showed up a little after eleven and we carefully strategized a plan.  But, before implementing said plan we stopped at Dave’s Famous BBQ to sample the wares.  And, they have some pretty tasty wares to taste.  We had a sampler plate for two which included BBQ’d ribs, BBQ’s beef brisket, BBQ’s chicken, French Fries, corn bread, and a side of BBQ’d baked bean.

My favorite was the beef brisket, but everything was good.  One thing that we did learn is that Famous Dave’s is real proud of their drinks.  The sampler costs twenty-two bucks and the drinks costs us eight bucks.  Add tax, tip, and title and the dinner costs almost forty bucks.  We’d do it again, but next time we’ll just ask for water.

After lupper, the four of us began our quest in search of the sun.

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

But, no matter how hard we searched, there just wasn’t any sun to be found.

Ain't no sunshine when he's (Sun’s) gone
It's not warm when he's away
Ain't no sunshine when he's gone
He's gone much too long
Any time he goes away

We really, really, really want whoever stole the sun to put him back because:

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

Well, our quest was unsuccessful.  Like Mikee says, “Some days it’s peanuts, some day it’s shells!”  But, even though we didn’t find the sun, we did get a “rain check” :-)

We did a drive around Sebago Lake, but, in my infinite wisdom, I left the camera behind.  Even though, to be honest with you, we didn’t find any “purdy views” to snap a picture of.  Everything is very, very wet and, with overcast skies, it just wasn’t all that appealing.  We did stop for a soft serve ice cream cone to brighten our day on the way back home.  According to the weather dudes, we have another five or six days of this sh-, eh, I mean stuff coming our way. 

Regardless of the weather conditions, we did have a fun outing with Mike and Peggy.  They had been away for a week visiting grand daughters in Jerzee.  It was dance recital week along with a soccer game or two.  They had a great visit with their son, Brian, his wife, Nikki, and grand daughters, Alyssa and Emily.  We’re just glad to have them back in the Pine Tree State so our playmates will be available for play time.

Take Care Until Next Time - - - - -
