Sunshine, Blue Skies, and a Road Trip!

My parents called yesterday and wanted to know if we might like to meet at Sprague’s today.  (Sprague’s just happens to be one of the best restaurants here on Planet Earth!)

We had been wanting to get together for Ben’s birthday for some time, but since my parents  live in the snowbelt…

The weather today could not have been any more spectacular if we had special-ordered it!  It was an amazing day filled with plenty of sunshine and blue skies!

We met at the restaurant and enjoyed good conversation and a good meal, as always!  Afterward, my mom, Ben, my brother Randy, and I all went for a little walk.  We were curious if the sugaring production had begun, but not yet.  The lines are all up and ready to go, though!

We walked back to the car and saw the most amazing thing!  There was a man walking a West Highland Terrier and a big Scottie!  I nearly jumped out of my skin!  I began talking to the man  and he was very friendly, as all Scottie owners are when it comes to their four-legged companions! Why I didn’t get photos, I don’t know.  I was too taken by the dogs, I guess!

The man talked at length about where they got their Scottie.  She is a big girl, weighing in at about 37 pounds.  The lady they got her from is from Scotland and she breeds them.  Of course, Angus and Murphy were in the truck and they got so excited seeing the girls! What a treat!

The man’s wife came out a little later and we chatted with them both for probably a good half hour! We found out that they had driven further than we from Waverly, New York.  They said they enjoy just taking “their kids” for a ride!  We just looked at each other and laughed, because Mark and I thought we were the only ones that ever do that!!!

I did take a few photos, but they were poor….taking photos from the back seat of a vehicle moving 55 miles per hour is a recipe for disaster!

What a(nother) fun day!
