Thelma and Louise hit the road, free range women again.
This time to meet up with Lucky Noodles and take her with us to a house Dear Louise found in Caseyville, IL to meet up with CatHill
and MiBeingMi. We packed Louise's car with our stuff. Literally. Packed. (She has the faux toe)
To find the house we were staying in we had to turn right at the giant catsup bottle. Really. It's a historical (and hysterical)
momument. At this point, I must apologize for the paucity of "faux toes". I know the better photographers in our company have many more.
The house was wonderful. Very private with a back deck that looked over a small lake. And what a kitchen!!
Louise aka Magnolia Blossom (for anyone who hasn't followed our previous excellent adventures) had put a shout out on the buzz to anyone living in the area if they
wanted to meet up.
We met Mel's Cooking Now and her four legged friend Belle. Mel graciously cooked us an Italian dinner Sat. night.
Thursday night and the gangs all here.
On Friday we visited Soullard Farmers Market. Can you say jello shots? What a place! If I lived nearer I would visit this market frequently.
On Saturday we visited the Missouri Botanical Gardens. . . again WOW!! I should have taken more faux toes here but was enthralled and later hot and wanted off my
Upon returning to the house, we had bloody Mary's in these cute glasses Mi brought and gave to us.
I was really happy to be able to see our lovely CatHill again and "fix" a sweater that didn't turn out quite right.
Spirits were high and I don't think anyone really wanted to leave.
About the pig tails and paisley. . .um. . .yeah, not to mention the boob. . . some things really need to stay in Caseyville. :)
A conversation on the way home.
Thelma: We are just about to pass Foot High Pies.
Louise: I was just thinking we need to do more research. It was on the food network!
Louise says: I don't think it's open.
Thelma says: There is a car in the lot and the lights are on.
Louise turning off the ramp.
Thelma: What time is it? 7 Days a Week 11-9.
Louise: It's 10.
Thelma: If we are still doing this when we are 70, maybe we'll slow down enough to be on time for things.
I love you ladies. Thank you all so very much. Especially my dear Louise.
