I know I've said this before, but I can't believe a whole week has gone by without a word from Whispering Pines..not even any whispering! The week before, and this week so far, has been a mix of crazy busy and just plain crazy at the hospital. The end of the year spells "Let's get it done" for many folks who put off getting that surgery all year. However, the deductibles have been met and now is the time before the new year. (Not to mention "Obamacare" surprises that will hit soon) Hey, no political statements here...I'm trying to be good..Santa is watching! But the weekend was fast and furious and also fun! Saturday morning Jack and I went out for breakfast. We don't do that very often and we went to a place I've never been before. When I mention this place to anyone from Ashland they are shocked. The conversation goes something like this: Me: "I went to the Lyn-Way restaurant for the very first time in all the years I've lived here". Them: "ARE YOU KIDDING?!" And so on. No I'm not kidding. I finally can check it off my bucket list...I went to the Lyn-Way...and it was really good! So I'm thinking I'll go back. Am I sad I put it off this long? Nah...I always thought it was a place for only old folks to hang out. And it is..and I am. Did I take any great pics to share? Pics of my food atleast? Nope. Then we went to Sam's Club and other places to shop. Did I take any pics? Nope. I had a weird experience in a public restroom too. Did I take any pics? Nope....thank God. I'll spare you. Much later in the day Jack and I went over to our friends, Derrick and Shan's to watch Ohio State get beat and to eat some pretty yummy food. Shan (I'm sure I'm spelling her name wrong) is from China and she made us noodles and fried rice that was really good. The hot sauce I tried burned my lips for 3 days, but it was good too! Did I take any pics? YES!
