spoonful of sugar

tonight after work, (and a wonderful dinner of philly cheese sandwiches and potato wedges courtesy of the sportslady) ko and i went for a ride to big lots to check out some ceramic pots. she's thinking about making a cool new oriental serenity fountain for our lanai, and i'm all for it.

afterwards, we stopped at home depot to check out drills. good to know that you can rent tools from there if you only need them once. c'mon, how many times are you going to need to use a rosewood wedge stemmed cutting gauge??? Ten times?? Maybe??

finally, we stopped at a turn-back-the-clock ice cream parlor near our home called fabulous 50's.
it looked like we just missed the fun, as they was live musicians striking their stage set up and a prepubescent elwood blues walking out the door.

no matter. ko ordered one of her favorites: thin mint crunch on a waffle cone. excellent choice...but she didn't luck out like moi.

after some hemming and hawwing, i decided on the snickers ice cream waffle cone. the jerk, noting my indecisiveness, asked what i almost picked for my favorite flavor.

reese's was my answer. without missing a beat, she handed me my snickers cone and a free spoonful of the peanut butter cup cream for the road.

nicely done. so, in review:

a nice atmosphere. little blues brothers. a reward for not making up your mind.

kudos to those fab 50's. i'll be time traveling back real soon.
