Since she arrived late at night -- we had no choice but the iconic Ross's 24 hour Restaurant...
|Pat arrived at 10 PM, so I didn't get a picture...but this is Lilly and Memphis (on another day). We're kind of fond of the place...|
|Here's President Obama -- at Ross's Restaurant, holding one of their giant homemade cinnamon rolls...|
|Alton Brown came to eat the Magic Mountain. Which, of course, was famous long before he got here. And that IS WHAT WE ORDERED on Pat's first night...|
We're off to a good start, eh??
On Pat's first full day -- we attended Lilly's dance recital. (no end to the excitement we have to offer..).
|There was a long line, waiting to get in...good thing Pat had her purse, because it was a $7 ADMISSION...(are you kidding me?) Thanks again, Pat, for paying the cover charge!!|
|Pat met Elliott..the entire audience looks mesmerized, don't you think?|
|YES, PEOPLE -- THERE IT IS. THE FAMOUS IOWA FRIED PORK TENDERLOIN SANDWICH. Reason enough to travel 2,000 miles, my friends...|
|Really. It's amazing. I like it with ketchup, mustard, pickle and onion.|
Nah....that could never happen...
Thanks, Sue, for the email yesterday regarding the CATS lessons. I enjoyed your perspective and thought I should share it...
Maybe the lesson is that the older we get, the less discerning we are about any form of entertainment...
