Before I tell you about that I have a little story to share with you. John and Val have been getting their solar installed and before they did they were parked with their door facing the inside of the circle. Charlie is used to going to their door every morning for his treat.
When they finished their solar install they came back to the circle, however because of the way the panels tilt, they wanted to park the opposite way around to maximize the suns effect. Charlie didn't realize that they were parked opposite and went and sat right where the door would have been. It looked so cute. He kept waiting for that invisible door to open.
So on with today's story. We arrived in Melbourne just in time for our 11:30 reservation. Gregory, who is the owner of La Crepe De France, had put some tables together outside under some umbrella's. I didn't get a good picture but there was John and Val, Jerry and Deb, Brian and Sue, Pat and Harold, Laurence, and Sue and I.
It was a hot morning so a memosa for the ladies was in order. It came with a blackberry as well.
Then the interesting part began. Gregory came out to speak to us and immediately took to Laurence. They were speaking French with a lot of excitement thrown in. It was like it was a meeting of the minds and we completely enjoyed just watching them talking. Gregory was a typical Frenchman with all of the arm waving and very flamboyant gestures and the more he spoke, the more excited he seemed to get. It was wonderful.
Our food was delicious and I had the Benedict crepe with gravy.
Speaking of Pat, some of you will have noticed for a long time I have been referring to her as Harold's wife. There is a story to that. One day we were discussing her name and she made mention that she was always known as Patricia and was never known as Pat in her younger years. When she married Harold, he had a sister whose name was Pat and in order to solve the problem of two Pats in the family, Harold's mother proclaimed that she would not be known as Patricia, but rather as Harold's wife!! So I said thats what I would call her too! She would rather be called Patricia, which is a nice name, but I have called her Pat since I first knew her so I said that it wasn't physically possible for me to change at this stage in life. As old as I am, it's lucky I can remember her name at all! So that's the story. I told her that after New Years I am going to revert back to Pat and would call her that lovingly as a friend. Well its after New Years so here we go!! Thanks for being a sport Pat!!
Pat showed off her neat gadget today. It's a fan that plugs into the iPhone power outlet. Nobody had seen anything like this before.
