I find I don’t have much to say today, so instead here are three photos. One was taken at the end of March by my sister, who was visiting from England, the other two about six weeks ago by our neighbour, Vicki, who is planning to make a blockprint portrait of us and took several study photos.
Saltoro is our neighbourhood joint. They make good cocktails, they have incredibly well-priced good-with-food wines (lots of French and Italian as well as the usual Washington and Californian stuff) and there are always a couple of choices of fish, chicken, steak, vegetarian, pasta, salad. So whatever you are hankering for that day, you can find it here. And they don’t mind if you linger for hours and hours over the wine.
We were both incredibly tired this day, though I can’t remember why. But we were happy to drink wine with Vicki and attempt to look non-destroyed for the camera. I think K did a better job than me. But she did train as an actor…
And, oh, what the hell, here’s a photo of me from the end of summer last year when Kelley and I decided to have a picnic in the garden, with champagne and caviar and generally enjoy the last of the year’s sun. Now we have a whole summer of it to look forward to, so I’m happy. Yay!
Later this week, K and I plan to experiment with adult milkshakes in the sun: ice cream, rum, roasted pineapple… Yum. If it works, I’ll share the recipe. Meanwhile, enjoy the day.

I always love seeing the photos, so thanks for sharing. You both look great.
Adult milkshakes – sounds perfect for summer. Roasted pineapple? You two are always coming up wit the interesting flavor combinations. I wonder what lemon sorbet and mint would be like with rum?
This is all just so sweet.
Vanilla ice cream + bourbon…
<>jennifer d<> Well, we found the recipe in a book. But we’ll probably futz with it. As for the lemon sorbet–why don’t you give it a go, and let us know?
<>jennifer from p<> The milkshake is definitely going to be sweet…
<>lonelypond<> I’ve never acquired a taste for bourbon.
Maybe I will just do that. I’m thinking lemon sherbet tho if it’s going to be a milkshake. And I’ve got some mint growing out back just waiting for it’s chance.
ah, well then you’ve never dated anyone from Kentucky who refused to drink anything else…chocolate + Kahlua or peppermint schnapps (works w/ hot chocolate) might might a nice taste but probably not a light summery taste…I always liked (though non alcoholic) 7-Up and Mint Chocolate Chip floats.
I've never dated anyone from Kentucky, full stop :)
