Hi, Everyone, Happy Halloween!
It's a nice, coolish Sunday night in San Diego. I'm listening to Enya, "the memory of trees". I feel fine, although a bit full.
Dan and Dare and I went to Pala casino for the buffet. My street gets so many hundreds (yes, really) of trick or treaters that I either spend $100 and buy 10 big bags of candy, or leave for the evening. This year I left.
It was a lovely drive through the country to get there and then when we got there, the buffet was out of this world. Specifically, they had lobster claws. All you want. Dan took a huge pile, spent some considerable time shucking them and then poured melted butter and squeezed lemon over the big pile of lobster meat and ate the whole lot (probably over a pound) in a few minutes. Yowza, they had good stuff. Mexican style lamb chops. Nice salads, nice soups. The sweet potato mash was out of this world. The creme brulee was so good. Even the coffee was good. Pala is definitely "it" for lobster and crab. The rest of the buffet is good, too. "Tomorrow" we diet, LOL. My vote for best buffet. Here's a pic from their web site.
Here's one from yelp.
Today I proctored a Buddhist study exam at Val's house. That was a lot of fun. The season for study exams is ending... a couple of make -up exams and we're done.
I'm knitting on a pair of men's brown socks these days. Christmas is coming to town!!! The guys are hard to knit for. There is a lot more stitches in a pair of socks than a ladies scarf. I'm looking at my list and there are a lot of men's socks on it yet to knit. Hmmmm.... I'll have to think of something. Since I'm thinking of holiday knitting, I changed the music to north pole radio. Since it is early in the season, they are playing jazzy or bassa nova songs based on carols, LOL. I'll have to find my usual German station this year as we get further into the season.
Lilo is missing in action. She loves to get out a bit when the weather is nice. Especially after she's been cooped up in the rain. Oops, here she comes. She knows when I type her name.
See y'all soon,
