"Hasta la vista, baby."
I've definitely eaten too much food this weekend and it's only Sunday morning. To celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary on Friday, Jill and I bought a largish parcel of fish and chips to consume on the riverside grass at Point Walter. The choice was delicious, but afterwards I felt I should have fed some of the chips to the seagulls instead of my greedy self. Then last night I was an attendee at some secret mens' business which started in central Freo and included a visit to the renowned Mexican Kitchen. Mexican food is very popular in Australia. The food ordered last night was also delicious, but the generous size of the portions proved to be a challenge for several of the Gringos present. I can't remember the name of what I had, but to the detriment of my waistline, the plate was clean by the time I finished. The focus of last night's affair was to confirm the impending conclusion of bachelorhood for our number two son Ken. As they say, "Hasta la vista, baby." Thanks to my son-in-law Elliott for taking the photo of Ken and me before the tequila ran out.
