After the rainy Saturday, Sunday looked promising - no rain forecast. Both 'A' and I managed to get ready to be out the door at the same time this morning, with no hassles. I dropped her at work and then I went to church. After church, M asked if I had big plans for my afternoon. I couldn't think of a thing that I'd planned on doing. By the time I had reached home it had dawned on me. Today was the Music Book Group at the library. I ate a quick lunch ( I confess that it was just a large bowl of ice cream) and took myself to the group. The book being discussed was "The Soloist". The discussion was rather shallow and I don't think it addressed the book very well. However, it was a couple hours after the group that boredom got the best of me. I don't know what possessed me, but...I decided that we should all go to Skip's for final meals of the season. Skip's was closing today and will not reopen until mid April. Now, we'd just been there on Thursday and it is an hour drive one way. "A' got out of work at 5:30 and we headed directly for Merrimac and our last (again) cheeseburger specials of the season. On the ride up we kidded that we didn't even know if they would still be open when we got there. Then what? What a relief to see the sign all lit up!We were hungry. We got up to the window to order and found out that they were all out of hamburgers! We quickly modified our menu to chicken fingers. We did get 3 of the last 5 orders of suzy-q potatoes (curly fries). By the time we had finished eating - in the car, of course, they were cleaning the grill and closing up. My mom decided she'd get out and do trash duty. All the containers had been removed! It was a pleasant ride home smelling the remnants.
Next Spring will be the start of Skip's 63rd year in business. I can't remember a time I didn't go there!
