Easter

Posted: March 20, 2016 in Ramblings

We are so far out of the loop of organized religion that we all guessed that today might be Easter, so I ordered the traditional Slaby breakfast at the café.  Kielbasa, scrambled eggs, hash browns, toast and orange juice as well as my required coffee.

Even though today is actually NOT Easter, the breakfast was still delicious.  I only ate one piece of the toast and two forkfuls of hash browns, thus staying nearly true to my no-carb rule.  Didn’t finish the orange juice either.

(Alex had the Pick traditional breakfast of M&M pancakes and a marshmallow crème milkshake 🙂 and Chris went for the traditional fried chicken with gravy.)

(Believe it or not) – so here is a good, sunny, outdoor photo of my new car for you.

Continuing with our vehicular theme, please meet the two newest additions to the US Picks family of cars.

Goodbye green Jeep, hello new Fiat 500!  This is the limited edition “Retro” (formerly known as “1957 edition”) model, and Chris has dubbed it Squirtle, after the Pokémon.

Has been using TM18 “Rain Dance” since its purchase.

 

This one is the Land Rover (Range Rover) Evoque (purchased used). The Man has been hankering for a Land Rover for many years. Every time he drives it, he finds some new cool feature to come home and report!

This car will be known as Arthur for a variety of reasons.

Please note that there are no plans to purchase an RV and drive it to Pennsylvania.  This would be inequitable treatment as we are unable to drive an RV to England.

 

Run for your lives!
