the nittier and grittier sides of life, I seem to be hopping from one mini-vacation to the next here in this blog. So I urge you, Reader Dear, to keep in mind that life isn't always a bed of Peruvian lilies (yes, roses have a lovelier scent; it's true, but I much prefer Peruvian lilies*).
We have precious friends there who treated us like royalty:
Put us up in a lovely room with a view!
Treated us to not only excellent cuisine, but exceptional entertainment, as well!
(Outstanding performance of the play,"Outside Mullingar"!)
And, en route up the highway toward home, they led us to rave about our twenty-four hour
*Even the names of this flower are exotic, Reader Dear. It's also called alstroemeria, or lily of the Incas; (sigh) isn't that lovely?
