I lost my job at the bank on my very first day. A woman asked me to check her balance, so I pushed her over!
The sky was dark today as the smoke from the fire was coming in this direction. Mary and I ran into the smoke yesterday returning from Banning. Today there was no sun, just a yellowish overcast.
I popped over to Irene’s and we went to George’s Greek Cafe on Pine Street Long Beach.
We ordered saganaki to begin with which is flaming hard cheese and it was perfect!
Irene has a good time as indicated below. We talked for an hour and a half catching up on things. Irene tried a very lite Strawberry Martini while I did a Dirty Martini. We are getting risque in our middle age.
I did the stuffed steak and the stuffing was spinach and feta cheese. The diet took a hit today! The skirt steak was stuffed with feta cheese and spinach combination, absolutely terrific! To top that off, a small Greek salad with rice pilaf was added.
I was in uniform for this afternoon’s lunch! The wait staff really liked the shirt a lot.
After returning home I crashed for about an hour, a much-needed rest. The afternoon was a wash day for me and I worked in the garden cleaning out the last of the tomatoes. This may call for a visit to the nursery this weekend.
Then Mary texted and said she got off work a little early. She planned Veal Picatta for dinner and would I like some. Well, that answer took 1.5 microseconds to answer. The Ghost and I set sail or her home.
We prepared dinner and then watched a movie called “Holiday In The Wild”. Jilted by her husband on the eve of embarking on an African safari, a woman travels to the continent alone where she meets an elephant conservationist.
It was a work night for Mary so I departed about 9:00 PM and headed home. Great evening with a great lady!
