~ Broccoli Slaw/'Shrooms/Egg ~ Summer Jo's ~ Harley ~

Good 32º sunny with some clouds morning. It was 27º when I got up.
Yesterday started out looking like this....

Predictions was 80% chance rain. I made breakfast... sauteéd fresh mushrooms with broccoli slaw then added scrambled egg and some baked chicken pieces. Really good.

A little after 11 I left for Grants Pass. Rain drops started then. Met up with Brian, Jen, Tucker, Sami, and Jean at Summer Jo's for brunch.

And we ate in the "Hanky Room". Those are old hankerchiefs hanging from the rod and the curtains are held back with old silverward fashioned into hooks.

Jen and I had mimosas. Didn't take pictures, but I had Eggs Benny with crab. Good! We had a nice time and visit.

The restaurant had mini-corsages for us. I laughed because Jean and mine looked like broccoli! It was actually a green flower. I did some searching for "green flowers that look like broccoli" but came up with pictures of broccoli! Then I found this picture but it doesn't say what they are!
 After lunch Tucker headed to a birthday party and I drove up the road to friend's and while the Mister went off doing 'stuff' (so us girls could gab), the Mrs. and I sat and had wine looking out over their fantastic view. I had a very enjoyable time chatting and drinking! Their house is one of those.... awesome and beautiful and made for entertaining! I was pea green. They will get to come to my "shack" one of these days soon. It rained at times, hard, but when I got home nothing was wet here.
PJ came up and while I hung onto Harley, she trimmed his toe nails. Not an easy task holding onto a tornado! He was MAD! And screamed at us. But after it was over he was fine and rubbed on both of us. Now he doesn't "click" when he walks across the kitchen floor!
Thank you PJ!!!!
