He knocked on my door before opening it, then leaned his head in and said, we are going out to have EASTER dinner. That was my son-in-law Tracy Drake. Well…OK then… so I won’t be making my special ham with brown sugar and mustard paste coating with pineapple slices secured on top with tooth picks.
Then my daughter Pamela said, “You want to go to The Charter House (on Longboat Key) or Marina Jacks (on Marina Bay backing up to Sarasota Intracoastal waterway)?” I replied, “Marina Jacks.”
However each of those restaurants were booked full. So…..it’s reservations at Sharkies on Venice beach. At their upstairs dinning room.
At my age, 94, I’m not always up to going out. And come EASTER morning it’s one of those days.
Pam and Tracy take off in warm sunny Florida, riding with the top down in Pam’s convertible. That is as close to Heaven as you can get and still be here on earth.
But I got some EASTER. My daughter Meredythe Wedding still in Dillon Montana, sent me this beautiful EASTER card.
After finally getting out of bed I had a cup of coffee, egg and raisin bread (from Publix bakery) toast slathered in butter followed with an Ensure chocolate protein shake and went back to bed to read a good book I found in Tracy’s bookcases. He has a multitude of great books that I haven’t yet read.
I heard the garage door open and I knew they came home, then there was a flurry of someone in and out if my room. When I ask Pam said, ” it’s the EASTER bunny “. My book was so interesting DIGITAL FORTRESS by Dan Brown who wrote THE Da VINCI CODE, that I didn’t see what she had put in my room until later. Oh my goodness look what the EASTER bunny left for me.
A slice of that cake with sliced strawberry on top then covered with whip cream (from a can) made a scrumptious ending to my EASTER DAY. YUM!!!!!! YUM!!!!
