Happy birthday Larry!
Looked outside this morning and it looked ugly, but when I did drag myself out I saw that it was lovely. There had been a small rainstorm that passed through very quickly and then it was lovely again.
We left around 11 AM and just drove. We found the most beautiful road that followed a river into the mountains. Just glorious. We passed a skeet shooting club and Lexi and I decided we want to try it soon. We stopped and walked down to the river and saw lots of people and lots of dogs. Was surprised at how many dogs liked going into the water.
After that we drove into Haily to go to the Verizon Store. Lexi has been having trouble with her data usage. We got that corrected and also asked more questions about my phone being turned off. We were told we would have to go online or go to one of their stores in order to do that. Kind of a wasted visit but at least Lexi got her data usage straightened out.
We drove back into Ketchum. We walked around for a bit, looking for a nail place to get one of Lexi’s nails fixed. We finally went to the Ketchum Visitor’s Center inside the Starbucks. The lady in the kiosk knew by memory a number of a place. Lexi called and made an appointment for 3 PM. We had some time to kill so we walked across the street and had lunch.
The place we had lunch at was called Bigwood Bread Cafe. It was excellent. You go inside and order, they give you a number, you take the number and find a table, they find you with order. Michael ordered a turkey, Lexi got a club sandwich, and I got an egg salad. We also got a piece of carrot cake. I made the mistake of opening up the box of the carrot cake while we were waiting. It disappeared in seconds. Michael and I both agreed that it was the best carrot cake we had ever had. Very rich, thick, and good. All the sandwiches were excellent. Would definitely recommend that place to anyone. Also, all the staff were very friendly and fun.
Tonight is all about NCIS, maybe a pasta dinner, and sleep. Hope your day was great!
