Squeaks and I used the excuse of our impending trip to New Mexico, not that we need an excuse, to get together and plan our road trip and general schenanigans.
I went up on a Fri. afternoon, early, on a Fri. afternoon, thinking I would miss some of the horrible late Fri. afternoon traffic on I-5. Silly me, the traffic is always horrible on I-5. But, lucky me, I have a great friend that is a paragon of hostesses, she had a wonderful spread of refreshments awaiting my arrival, to soothe my travel weary soul.
To start with,
a nice chilled bottle of Etoile Brut Champagne. Marvelous, marvelous.
Wait 'till you see the snacks.
