Miss Hower Chimes In

Miss Ives, blogger extraordinaire, would you permit me to add a couple of colorful details?  

First, thank you for allowing me to maintain some dignity in that shame-faced restaurant moment regarding the dreaded champignons.   My memory is mostly of that look, that shared moment, between you and the waiter when you both rolled your eyes a little in my direction.  It was a moment that said, "Sure, I'm here enjoying my friend's hospitality, but I cannot guarantee her intelligence."  It was a moment when the two of you acknowledged to one another (silently) that, despite my dewy Laslo skin and cute sweater, I was a linguistic moron or, as the French might say, an imbecile! 

Merci.

***A note from Mental P Mama:  Miss Hower has somehow managed to become a guest contributor to MY blog!  Love ya baby!  Now a note to self: teach her how to log me off her computer....

Just to throw a little lighter fluid on the fire, your dewy skinned girlfriend is still ordering things like "Frisee salad, but hold the frisee. I don't like it....please." All delivered in a fetching tone, cute sweater and fab-u-lous shoes. FYI, I think La Praire has replaced your old friend, Laslo.

Kind of like me and Rooster, however, you and your dear friend are classier than we'll ever be! LOL

Friendships are precious and meant to be cherished! Great two posts!

Love the stories. Keep em coming...

Dignity is very important when one is on a wine-less diet.
