MLK Day...This Is What I Did

What did you do on MLK day? Me? Well, there was no day of service in my agenda. But wait, does it count when you take the MIL out for lunch? I think it does.

Daughter and Grandson picked us up late morning. After two days of rain, yesterday was bright and sunny or as my MIL said "The sun is sharp!" Her comment made Erika and I giggle.

On the agenda for lunch was la Madeleine. This has become my new favorite country French cafe! We love their daily soups and always enjoy the pasta of the day. Unfortunately, Monday was not vodka sauce pasta day. :(

But the funniest thing that happened was when we were loading Jack and MIL into the car. Being 86 years old, of course my MIL moves a little slow, but she said as she struggled to get her legs into the car, "My legs are dry." I said, "No problem. Let me get the oil can and get your started!" To my amazement, she took offense to that. I just can't win.

That absolutely was a day of service. And just so you know, I think the oil can line is funny. Hope you had an early martini after that.

I thought the oil can comment was cute! I remember my grandma being offended by the strangest things.

A day with Jack is always a good day!

Well I laughed at the oil can but when you have Alz who knows? Jack is too cute.

You did a good deed! We never know what is going to hit a nerve. Probably wasn't what you said, but maybe an unpleasant memory

YOU OFFICIALLY QUALIFY FOR A DAY OF SERVICE....JACK LOOKS LIKE HE'S GETTING SO BIG....HE'S ADORABLE.

Yeah, you can't win sometimes. But it was very nice to take her to lunch on such a sharply sunny day!
