Got invited to some Moon Festival dinner thing with live performances and silent auctions and raffles and line dancing. The food was good but served so slowly that you could eat almost continuously and never get hungry. Moon cake is yummy. I bid on an incredibly tacky plate with a dragon and  "Marco Polo" painted on it, and won. I had no intention of winning it, I just bid to get the ball rolling ($30)... the thing's like a foot and a half wide! Oh well, good times.

Ok we all did a picture of this plate.  Ah the prices we pay in life in an effort to end awkward silence!  (I wonder if auctioneers take advantage of that trait as well as salesmen do?)

We're going to be picking up our Fidelco puppy on Saturday. It's going to be adorable. German Shepherd puppies are the best of all possible puppies.

Are you fostering the puppy until it becomes a guide dog?

Yup. Takes 'em a while to grow into the ears. :)

out for nice Italian restaurant tonight with group of friends.  Have a group of friends over for dinner tomorrow (I think I have decided to try Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding).  Out Sunday to a nice Chinese restaurant for a wine dinner with friends.

I think weekends are always planned around food and wine

Yeah, that's how they get trained. We get her for about a year.
