Life Is Good

Last week started off with a bang (as noted in the previous post). It finished pretty well, too.

Abe was out of town on business and invited me to join him overnight. I was able to drive to Ft. Wayne and meet him for dinner and dessert. We ate at his favorite restaurant and then he took me to DeBrand Chocolatier's prime location. This is the source of those incredible turtles he brings home whenever he goes to Ft. Wayne. (They can't call them "turtles," as apparently the name is taken, so they call them "caramel pecan patties." These clusters have four legs, a head and a shell, but whatever.) We also sampled dark chocolate raspberry creams and a gorgeous egg-shaped truffle.

Every bite was a sensuous delight.

We had a lovely time together in the midst of his busy season. I headed back home, only to leave the next day to Terre Haute to see Sheba and bring the new mattress for her. (Saved $100 shipping and had time with daughter: priceless.) She showed me her new rental house and we had dinner at the local mall. Not much to choose from in Terre Haute, but we had a good time.

Sheba reminded me about Great Big Sea coming to town, so yesterday I bought a couple of tickets. Who's my lucky date for the night? We'll see.

You know i love GBS.

Those chocolates look good, but not w/nuts. Nuts aren't supposed to be IN food. That's just plain wrong!

Great Big Sea? I'm afraid I'm out of the loop.
