Mz PB&J and Sister were the hostess for April's Art Venture luncheon. They reserved the patio of the Calpyso Cafe in Belle Meade. It was a beautiful day however a little windy. We had a nice young man as a waiter and he would come out with four plates on his right arm and one in his left hand.
The Calpyso is right across Leake Avenue from the Belle Meade Plantation. If you ever come to Nashville then you must put it on your list of things to do. I thought since it is Kentucky Derby weekend that the Barn at the Plantation should be displayed. In the beginning, Belle Meade was known for its horses and the barn was one and probably still is one of the largest in Nashville.
There is a restaurant upstairs at the gift shop that has white linen tablecloths and downstairs are all the regular gift items plus some rather unusual ones too. On the left side in the back is an art display and that was where Bunny had hers that I wrote about before. Several of the art group went over and explored the art gallery and the gift shop. I walked up the parking lot to the very end to take the picture of the barn.
Our rain gauge this morning had two inches in it and all that came down last night within a few hours. Ah, more water for the pond. However, we will have to let the grass dry some before we can cut it and it needs it again badly.
Puppy is out of college and as any Mother who has had a child in college, the house has several piles that need to be put away neatly. His roommate lives in North Carolina, so Puppy brought his little frig home to store. I was happy we could help Tad and was happy that Puppy offered to do this for him.
So far, Mimi did really good again with her leg surgery. We get to take all the bandages off Monday evening. Then the stocking goes on for a week. Next week we will go back for an ultra sound to make sure everything is really okay. I can only hope when I get to be 89, I will be as good a trooper as she. If she complains, I know something is really wrong. Mother was even worse than Mimi but Dad well he complained about everything. It would have been nice if a LITTLE bit of Dad could have rubbed off on Mimi.
The Kitty Justice is that I miss both of them, Mom's never complaining and Dad's constant complaining. I guess we kids would have been in a pickle if they both had been like Dad.
