How To Be Taken Out To Dinner

Step One: Get a date. I found a tall, dark, and handsome British fellow with dreamy hair. He didn't even mind carrying the picnic gear for our trip up into the mountains. Note the classy touch of a sheepskin rug. Not shown: a packed lunch of very fancy Annie's Organic Mac-n-cheese in a thermos and a green apple for dessert.

Step Two: Once picnic destination is reached, halter and tie off horse to maple tree by tasty grass. Then set out your evening's entertainment on your classy blanket and your dinner. Not shown: Smiling woman who is so touched that Connie down at Battenkill Books handed me this advanced copy of The Scavengers by Michael Perry, to read for my birthday.

Step Three: Sit back with a full belly after you feed half your dessert to your date. Then enjoy a nip of bourbon while leaning back on a sheepskin - overlooking your mountain home. Read an adventure, feel blessed, and waste some serious time in style.

Mother Nature provides the best ambiance for dining out. :)

Great way to recharge yourself to prepare for another week on your side of the mountain. So as I see it, it wasn't a waste of time.
