Girls Day Out - Part Two. Powersporks and Zombie Squirrels.
It was girl's day out Part Two.
Miss D. and I drove the BAT(Big Ass Truck)mobile into the city and grabbed Tam and we hit the road before Miss D. and her airplane leave in the morning.
Lunch at the Belgium Brew Pub - Brugge Brasserie.
Would you like large fries with that? We barely made a dent in them and the twelve dipping sauces before the cheese and fruits and little nuggest of meat goodness, crepes and salads arrived. (Is that goose liver pate??)
It's a restaurant AND a brewpub.
Then it was a dash to Penzey's Spices where I bought some surprise spices for Shannon and Oleg and Tam got some goodies for Bobbie and Roseholme Cottage. Look Cake Spice! (but no Win Spice). Then we were off to Mountain of (likely liverless) Geese for ammo. They had no Hoppes No. 9 car air freshners left but we left with an armful of shooty goodness. The final stop was Kahn's, a specialty liquor store that has more Irish spirits than anyplace I've seen as well as an assortment of tasty and unique brews. "Look, a yellow airplane!"
Conversation was the usual, guns, dogs, zombies, hippies, concealed carry, literature, science and after Tam got to feed Purina Giraffe Chow to the tall ones at the IND zoo a while back, a discussion as to whether there a Purina Chow for Everything.
Miss D. "Purina Zombie Chow - brains!"
Me: "Purina Snail and Slug Chow - Sodium Free!"
And a short check to see what the neighborhood gargoyle was wearing before waving goodbye and driving home.
I go back on 24 hour call in the morning for the next couple of weeks. Miss D. is getting a little nap in now preparing to leave very early in the morning for home and husband while new and old friends get back to a more normal routine.
For the rest of you. . . tomorrow a real gear review.
It's either going to be a "The Power Spork" review. Spaghetti night at Mr. B. and Midwest Chick's house.
Zombie Squirrel Weaponry, a review of the Savage HMR 17.
You never know WHAT you're going to find at Home on the Range.
