Good Evening my dears..
Thanks for dropping by..
Just a short posting tonight as I share a bit of whimsy with you all..
Terry and I went to Moncton and I noticed this sweet couple standing and waiting for their bus..
As we drove past I mentioned to him how sweet that couple was..
Of course, typical man, he did not even notice them..
He was interested in getting some gas and drove into the garage right next door..
As I sat in the truck I looked over to where they were..
Isn't that just so sweet?
She is leaning against the pole with her lovely red hat and purse reading something out of a book she must have just bought..
I am surmising that they were doing a bit of shopping..
Notice their packages..
Some reading material for each of them, I think..
Perhaps a grapefruit and a few herbs to finish a dish she has planned for dinner..
Just my imagination doing it's thing here.. smile..
I wanted to ask them if I could take their picture but Terry was filling not only the truck but containers for the lawn mowers and such..
I was certain they would be gone before he was finished..
They were still there and Terry was so sweet as to oblige me and drive over to them..
I rolled down my window and showed them my camera and asked if I could take their photo... smile.
They smiled and rearranged themselves a bit..
He said I could use it to scare mice.. grin..
I expect they have been together since they were young and live in some lovely old fashioned apartment down by Victoria Park..
I think it has a large balcony and is filled with wonderful plants in the summer..
Climbing roses, geraniums, and lots of vines and such..
Perhaps there are a couple of chaise lounges with vintage cushions and a small table for their tea tray..
I think he was an officer during the war and met her while he was in Paris..
And perhaps she was one of the war brides that arrived back in Canada before her husband..
Probably after the war they visited her family every once in awhile and brought a bit of the culture back here to New Brunswick..
They certainly are a dapper couple, eh?
Every Wednesday morning they go downtown and do a bit of shopping and having lunch at the cafe and then they catch the bus and go home...
They are expecting the weekly phone call from their family who live in Montreal..
And dinner is slow roasting in the oven..
Tomorrow she will make the recipe for Grapefruit Gazpacho that she found in one of her cookbooks..
It is a cold vegetarian soup with citrus, tomitilloes, purple onions and cilantro..
The recipe is HERE.
Hope you enjoyed this little bit of imagination on my part..
Have an awesome week..
We are working on our taxes..
Will chat again soon..
