I am sure you are seeing Baton Rouge on the national news. It is surreal here. We never thought anything like this would happen here. The thing most people are talking about is where the heck is our mayor? Kip is generally a guy who loves to get out among the people. He is a huge supporter of CAAWS and is always at the parade, working closely with Frank and Greg.
We were going to head down to the Farmer's Market in Baton Rouge this morning but thought the better of heading into town. There are sporadic protests that crop up in places and we just didn't want to be involved in them. So we went to Denham Springs instead, the next town over toward New Orleans.
It is not a large, but the prices are assuredly better. Okra, tomatoes, carrots and corn. We needed more sugar free bread and butter pickle anyway. So that was a plus. We stopped at the Fruit Stand and got Louisiana peaches, some pears and blueberries that were so cheap I bought 4 gallons of them!
I love the little farmer with his truck garden! The veggies are so sweet and ripe!
Later in the afternoon we went to Best Buy. Why? you ask. Because FRANK lost his Fitbit. Can't remember where in the heck he put it, or if he put it somewhere, or if it fell off. So for the last two weeks we have torn this house apart looking for it. I put a Tile on his keys but that won't work on a Fitbit! That is another $150 I could have used at a REALLY fancy restaurant!
We did go to BoneFish Grill on Friday with friends. LOVE that place. It is where we went to get lobster for my birthday. I am going to shock you here, I ordered FISH. I generally hate fish, but this sounded so delicious. It was tilapia stuffed with crab, shrimp, scallops and lemon caper butter. It was almost as good looking as our server guy. Oh, he must work out by the size of those arms! Too bad I don't have another daughter to marry off!
He currently drives a 2014 Accord that has 130,000 miles on it!
And you know what? Never had an accident and only had two speeding tickets, both in notorious Louisiana speed traps (Bunkie and Golden Meadows). The cop in Golden Meadows told him if he paid the $45 fine right there he could just go right on. So he did!
I do miss my little red sports car, but I guess that is impractical for grandchildren. Dogs don't really care, I could fit two 125+ pound Swissys and Chloe the Smelly Basset in my Prelude, and they were happy a clams!
Maybe tomorrow I can quilt something........
