From their I headed home where TLE was awaiting my return so she could go shopping. I worked on one project I had started while we were at my brother's home in South Jordan, but had not finished. Back then I had cut a corner off the old table.....the same one I made the other shelf from......to use as a small wall shelf for any particular beverage I may be drinking while sitting in the recliner......here is the finished product.
I think it turned out rather nicely......how about you? Yes, I even use it to hold my coffee cup when I'm at the computer first thing in the morning.
The weather most of Saturday continued to be cold, blustery and cloudy, but NO more rain. Hoping for a nice sunny day Sunday to we can take a bike ride.
Later that evening we met our very, very good friends Paul and Kayre at a new local Italian place....Brio Tuscan Grille. Yelp gives them a solid 4 stars, and it is very good....we would give them 4.5. Paul and I first met back in the mid 90's on a group mountain bike sponsored by a local bike shop, and became good friends. Together we have logged a couple thousand miles of mountain bike trails locally, and at Mammoth Mountain. Nothing like a lot of pain, suffering and blood to bond two guys together. Over the years we have each helped the other after serious crashes.....they say there are two types of mountain bikers.....those who have crashed, and those who will....it's not a matter of "if", but WHEN it will happen. We enjoyed a leisurely 2 hour dinner with non-stop conversation. It is located in the Victoria Gardens shopping center if you are interested in trying it out....I understand this is a chain, but this is the first one in California.
On our way home we dropped off the turkey TLE had bought earlier in the day at our "sticks and bricks" home for my oldest daughter to put in their refrigerator.....we just do not have room for a 17.5 pound turkey in our small refrigerator.....:D
By the time we got home there was only one late NCAA Football game on between Oregon State and Washington.....I watched part of the UCLA game before dinner (UCLA lost), and part of the Texas A&M vs. LSU game, but considering it was Saturday I did not get a chance to watch much football....believe me when I say.....this will not be the case on NFL Sunday!
Thanks for stopping by!
