A Day in the City

I went to Kansas City today to enjoy lunch with daughter Gillian. 

Gill looks good all the time - even on a sand bar with a bloodhound on scent.

Today was not to be so outdoorsy...except that it was, and it was fun!  Our plan was to head to a French bistro for lunch. 

(Our BIG plan is that whenever we two have lunch, we try a different restaurant every time.)  

 I drove from Gill's apartment, the two of us chatting and whatnot, and then we got to where we were going (or so we thought...).  Apparently I drove about 10 city blocks south of the restaurant.  Oops.  We did some window shopping and some scoping out of other restaurants for future lunches.  I suggested, in that it was nearly 50º out, why don't we walk the distance to Aixois? 

And so we did. 

Most of out walk took us through the residential neighborhood of Brookside with its decades-old Craftsman-style homes.  Such a pretty neighborhood!  So much old limestone and pretty old craftsmanship and architecture - it was certainly worth the trek.  It is so trite to state, "They just don't make them like they used to."  But really: they don't.  I am an Old House fan, to be sure.

After a Croque-Monsier and a Croque Madame, we strolled down the avenue - nope: Boulevard - once again.  It was a really nice lunch!  Must do more frequently...

50 degrees! Yes, a perfect lunch day. It's 25 here and snowing. I'm having cocoa.
