I was, up until the last moment not sure I would go - stuff.. eating at a restaurant.
I did go and and so happy I did, our friend Mark that we met last year at the mushroom meal joined us for the ride down to the city, we had many laughs - the meal was terrific - the service superb!
Our waiter Michael was wonderful... and I met another waiter and asked him his name in conversation - I like to know name when I am speaking with them... He blurted it out and looked at me strange, we all started laughing and I said " No, REALLY!?" laughing - he said 'really' & I said "prove it! " He pulled out his drivers licence and showed me and I laughed some more and got a big hug from 'Genghis Khan'.
We watched Documentaries on Genghis Khan- I've blogged- so it was a really good giggle as you might imagine, this Genghis Khan a much nicer version I will say.
I can't remember the last time I had such a good time!
Storm was asked to help with the draw at the end of the evening- when we filled out the slip of paper I simply wrote 'Georgia' and drew a tiny mushroom beside my name - & folded the papers, tossed them in a bowl! I said 'when I win they will only need my first name.' ( Positive thinking - right) Storm went over into the other room- it's big place and Mark and I talked on- next thing I know my name was called out - "Georgia! " Yikes, I wondered what I had done... lol
I won! A gentleman (who got a hug) picked out my name and Storm told me later, all he could do was smile, he saw my name and couldn't even say it. It was a perfect way to end the evening.
I am not kidding when I tell you, sitting here now- I am drooling- thinking of the ravioli. I wished they delivered. They might, but it would probably cost me $200 for the taxi. :D
Now- It is Morel season and we hope to find some - ready for the frying pan!
Get out an explore nature! Teach your children how to me Mushroom hunters & they just might not hunt other creatures- when they learn the beauty of fungi and work their way up!
Positive thinking - right? I love my boy.
Now, I'm painting a bunch of mushroom works - just for FUNgi.
