Welcome to Pearson Report.
I am participating in the 2015 A to Z Challenge.
Yes, I will be adhering to my THEME Calendar.
Okay, so QUARRELLING is something we can all agree gets done, with or without success. I loved all your comments. I’ll leave that as a stand alone sentence, and will add this… I really laughed at Annalisa Crawford’s comment - I only thought cats went after the furniture!
Here's her comment, so you don't have to go looking for it (Damn, I'm thoughtful.)
Curious minds want to know… Is he a little dog, a catdog (like a catfish) or is he just totally unruly because, well, I hate to ask, but is it because you're not good at disciplining your dog? LOL Just wondering, that's all!! (Miss Lucyfur used to eat my wood mouldings.)
OKAY… HERE WE GO…
Back on Feb 27, my daughter, and her man, took me up to Seasons in the Park Restaurant, atop Queen Elizabeth Park, for a birthday lunch.
GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT - no, not the kids, THE MEAL, THE SERVICE, THE AMBIENCE - EVERYTHING SUCKED!
Now… let me share with you a little something about me - I don’t take it lying down - really - I do battle standing! That’s a fact.
I found the manager and gave him a sliver of my mind. (Must be careful, not much left.) This resulted in me receiving, in the mail, a $50 gift card and a “we’ll do better next time” apology.
NO - THEY DID NOT DO BETTER!
My friend Jane and I have frequented this restaurant a lot in the past so I thought what better way to sever my dining relationship from this sinking ship than going out with a drinking-buddy bang!
We had two Caesars, hers with Tequila, mine Vodka, with spiced beans. We ordered, and shared, two appetizers - Stuffed Mushroom Caps (crab/cream cheese - which I promptly wrote as crap/cream cheez - so, yeah… my mind was elsewhere) and Calamari - more chew bits than yummy tentacles.
We parked below the restaurant, as it was a glorious day, and leisurely walked to it while enjoying the sights - we enjoyed the long way back to our cars.
All in all - the best part was what Mother Nature provided.
See for yourselves…

|Tami Thiriwell - a watercolour artist. |
She's quite talented - her blog has stunning watercolours!
I purchased the two small paintings she's holding.
|View from the restaurant - I'll miss this, but it's free outside the restaurant!|
The rest of the photos are as we made our way down into the Large Quarry, and back to our cars… truly a stunning day.
I didn’t think it would be so easy to RUN UP A TAB, on someone else’s bill - but I was wrong. It was damn easy!
The bill and tip were covered by the gift card. The parking was free, and Mother Nature has yet to ask for my Visa!
That how you enjoy a free day, at someone else’s expense!
If you could RUN UP A TAB, what would you buy at someone else’s expense? (ohhh, that’s a juicy one, eh!)
