Lunch with Regina

Hi everyone, this is Rose here. We just got back from lunch with Regina at the Cheesecake Factory in West Palm. Diane and I met Regina there for lunch and we had a wonderful girl’s luncheon. Brian stayed in the background, answered a few questions, but mainly we three girls talked and got to know each other. Regina is very nice and we connected right away. It’s always difficult to meet someone for the first time, especially when it’s a blogger. We bloggers tend to be private, so it’s a chance to meet in person.

City Place is interesting, it’s a community of condos with shopping and open spaces. Basically an open mall with streets. The main square is medium size with fountains. Everything is two stories and compact. We have never eaten at a Cheesecake Factory before, but it was only a ten minute wait for a table. We had the lunch portions because we all wanted cheesecake for dessert and Regina warned us that the portions were very big. So what did I have?

It was the best chicken I’ve had so far. Came with white rice and snow peas with slivered carrots. Ate it all too. 😛 For dessert, I had a white chocolate macadamia nut cheescake. Ate all that too. :mrgreen:

We had a great time talking about anything and everything in our lives for several lovely hours. Good food and great friends. I hope we can get together again in the future. Thanks Regina so much for being my friend. Afterwards, Diane and Brian went to Barnes and Nobles and bought some train magazines for the boys. Also, Brian checked out the prices of books for the size and type of format he’s using.

Other than that, it’s been a quiet vacation for me, but these next three days will be busy. Until then, Rose saying bye-bye.




Hi everyone, Rose here. I must admit to being a wee bit on the down slope this week. Not sure why, probably a combination of things. Haven’t been out at all since the weekend, done no writing and generally been staying in my room. What’s a girl to do?

This Saturday, the 16th of June, is my first birthday. A year ago on that date, the name Dewy Knickers was posted for the first time. Diane and I plan to have a girl’s night out with friends on Saturday night. I am looking forward to it and plan to tell you all about the fun and excitement.

The following weekend, Brian’s starts his vacation and we are all going to Madd and Carol’s house for a relaxing time. I hope to meet a friend while we are there as well.

I have thought up a few more chapters of Whiskers, but haven’t put them down on *paper* yet. I know it’s Thursday, but no poetry has reared its head this week.

I think one of the problems is that I’ve discovered I really dislike the heat and it is hot! Brian works outside and this week has been in the mid 90’s with very high humidity. I poke my face out and then go right back into my cool room. No thanks, the only sweat I want to have is between the sheets. 😉

Hope you all are getting along fine this week and I’ll try to be more upbeat after the weekend. Until then, this is Rose saying I love you.
