Richard was asking me, “Where would you like to go out to dinner?”

Like there was any question? Where do we always go to celebrate our anniversary (not to mention, this time, the book’s being launched at last–what else would do)? The Peninsula’s answer to Alice Water’s famous Chez Panisse in Berkeley, the place where you go if you want to really, really enjoy your meal.

“The one where they shear the sheep.” I grinned. “Of course!”

That utterly threw him. There was this head-tilted-sideways pause, and then, “Huh?”

Flea St Cafe in Menlo Park

“You know! Fleece Treat Cafe!”

Ohhhh Noooooo —- well actually that was pretty good 😀

Got your book today I love the stories with the patterns – not to try to pick what I want to make …. in the fall …. too hot now…. much too hot now. 😉

and that was NOW to pick a pattern = not NOT to pick a pattern – if only my fingers put out what my brain sent to them . . . geeze

Popping over from Lene’s blog again. Yikes! Glad your vacation story had a happy ending. And Fleece Treat cracked me up. It looks like a great place!

Ha! Y’know, the first time you told me about Flea Street, I did think you said Fleece Street.

We had our anniversary dinner that year too. I was the nightmare pregnant client, they made me some perfectly lovely food, and then I asked them to take it away, quick, because it was meat. Like, didn’t I realize it was meat when I ordered it? I felt so bad but they were so nice about it I began to feel it was forgivable and thoroughly enjoyed my anniversary date.

[…] someone who eats if they’d like to go to Flea Street for dinner is like asking someone who knits if they’d like some […]
