Steven and I celebrated today’s extremely warm weather with a short walk and dinner out. I had meant to make a Pedestrian Post and took my Tablet on the walk in hopes of finding some of them there May flowers to take pictures of. That did not work out so well. I tried to take a picture of two trees starting to get leaves, but all I could see on the Tablet was the reflection of my own stupid face. No, I did not have it in “selfie” mode; it was the result of the bright sun on the black screen. I think. I did not continue to look at it, because the angle was really showing up my middle-age turkey neck. I don’t mind getting old, but there is no reason to stare at some things.
The sun was bright and hot; shade and breeze were not plentiful, but what we encountered was appreciated. No, I am NOT complaining. I would have enjoyed authentic spring weather, but I’ll take summer. I said we should sit out on the deck with a couple of beers, but we were hungry and going out to eat sounded really, really good. I suggested Franco’s Pizza in Ilion. I had been there for the first time on a recent Scattered Saturday, but Steven had never been.
The restaurant was not crowded, but a few people were ahead of us ordering at the counter. That was OK, since we needed time to peruse the boards and decide what to get. We were still debating when it was our turn, so the counter person was able to help the person behind us who was picking up an order. We saw a few people picking up orders they had called in. Maybe we’ll do that next time.
At last we decided on a small, thin crust garlic pizza with sausage and mushrooms with ten butter-garlic wings. We split a bottle of Dasani. We sat at a tall table and enjoyed the retro ’50’s decor as well as the sunshine coming through the large windows. The food was delicious, and we brought home leftovers. Pizza for breakfast, my favorite!
