Mother's Day Lunch — Six Word Saturday —
My Six Words:
There are twelve Pappadeaux's in the Houston area. Their web site says:
"At Pappadeaux, we're all about fresh! Not fresh frozen. Not flown across the country last Tuesday fresh. We’re talkin' swimmin' around yesterday fresh."
We started with Pappa's Greek Salad for two:
"Our original salad tossed with fresh vegetables, imported kalamata olives, capers, solinika peppers, oregano & feta cheese in Pappas Greek Dressing, prepared tableside." [Their menu]
As shown on the left above, Mrs. Jim had the grilled Tilapia Lafatette,
We ate off the "Lunch Menu" which had smaller portions than the regular dining menu. This was plenty for us, in fact, we ate so much that we could only eat half a desert. So we divided a Crème Brulée with fresh fruit.
The board above showed the kiddo's who were waiting for us some activity. I don't know what the winners of the coloring contest would win for a prize. We don't know of any 'winners' while we were there. The wait wasn't long, about 20 minutes. Good for Mother's Day lunch.

My Alphabe-Thursday -- "A"
"A" is for AXLE today. This poor old Model T Ford will be up to it's axles in mud very soon. But don't worry, the team of horses is there to help out. Hence (perhaps) the old saying, "Get a Horse!"
That was hollered a lot at the cars when they broke down or got stuck in the early days of automobiling.
Speaking of early days, I rode a horse to high school for my freshman and sophomore years. Even through the snow on in the mud, up hill and down hill, for three miles.
Check out more Alphabe-Thursday 'A' assignments with Miss Jenny at the head of the class. You can find her here.
Picture courtessy of John M. who e-mailed this to me and lots of other people. John currently owns two Model T Fords.

Garden Friends -- Things in a Row -- Two Questions --
These guys are tin grasshoppers. They look more intricate than the turtles so of course they will be $$$$.
And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)
Last week 's post was about mushrooms and things growing in your yard. You can go back (May 10th) and check on responses. Also I wondered if your dog shared your interests.
My Two Questions for this week:
1. What 'pretty' things do you have in your garden or yard? Or if you don't have things now, or to update, what would you like to add?
I would add a fairy garden with a few little fairies here and there. I first discovered the fairy gardens in the Isle of Man when we were peeking in at my roots.
Besides personal fairy gardens they are placed on the side of the road. It will help your luck if you will place a note to the fairy of this garden asking for her assistance.
2. Do you like turtles and grasshoppers?
I love them, especially turtles! Adi likes them too!

-- MidWeek Blues -- More London Pictures -- Grandchildren Pictures
|I love my blueberry muffins!|
We went to breakfast on the day of our eating pictures, on our way to visit Regent's Park. Billy and I had an English breakfast of ham, sausage, eggs, and fried potatoes. Mrs. Jim had her an order of pancakes. She and I mixed and matched to make two English breakfasts with a pancake.
The playground above which we did not visit is Violet Hill Gardens park (link), part of a neighborhood park near KP's school and home. In the background is Saint Marks Church, a Church of England church.
This one, to the right, is the St. Johns Wood Church Playground off in the other direction and a longer walk. KP loves this big slide. I can remember back when she would only do the little slide and then only slide on her tummy.
