It’s All Mikee’s Fault

The sun’s in my eyes, the ball took a bad hop, and my glove is too big, but it’s all Mikee’s fault.  What’s Mikee’s fault?  Why the institution of Tea Time, of course.  Yep, Tea Time occurs around three o’clock everyday and, most likely, will not really consist of any tea, unless you’re a teetotaler.  At Mikee’s house it’s a martini or screw driver and at our house it’s a margarita.  But, as Peggy says, “It’s all good!”

We had a storm front pass through our area yesterday afternoon which brought with it a cold front.  After several days of “record” warm, we woke up to temperatures in the low 60’s – that seems Brrrrrr to us.  If we were true northerners, sixty would be a good temperature in April.

Being that it was a storm day, Mike, Peggy, Judy, and I headed for Lebanon to drop off Mike and Peggy’s Maine Income Tax forms at the post office and then to partake in another fine meal at Demos’ Family Restaurant. 

Mike and I had a seafood stuffed baked potato (A big baked potato loaded with shrimp, clams and crabmeat blend in a creamy Newburg sauce and topped with sautéed mushrooms, diced tomatoes, onions and peppers).  Peggy had the Mushroom Burger while Judy had the Greek Style Chicken Sauce Spaghetti.  Again, as Peggy says, “It’s all good!”  Mike and Peggy treated us to dinner – thanks guys. 

Demos’ is a great restaurant with good food and good prices.  There are five restaurants in the Nashville, Murfreesboro, and Lebanon area.  So, if you find yourself in the area looking for a nice “home cooked” meal, thar ya go!!!!

Judy and I spent a couple of hours reading before Tea Time.  Judy made her world famous frozen margaritas (thanks Dortha for that recipe) and we sipped away while solving all the country’s problems.  It’s amazing the solutions you can come up with over a couple of margaritas.

Then we hunkered down and did more reading while waiting for the “severe storm” that never materialized, but that was perfectly fine by us.

Today we’ll be out and about looking for possible landing sites for when we decide to come off the road.  Now, don’t get too excited ‘cause we’re only looking toward some future date down the road.  We know we like Rainbow Plantation, but this area has something that the Plantation doesn’t – grand kids.  It’s all about options.

Take Care And Don’t Let The Boogie Man Getcha - - - - -
