Three Feather Thursday And More Square Stuff:) Now That’s a Steak!

“Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul 

And sings the tune without the words 

And never stops at all.” 

― Emily Dickinson

I didn’t sleep much last night. I’m pretty sure it was the three diet cokes that kept me tossing and turning till well after 5 a.m. Instead of sleeping in, I woke to the 7a.m. alarm and went to Zumba at 8:30. The minute I got home, I changed and went for a long walk. It was already pretty darn hot, but I decided to walk a different direction. On the drive home, I saw that a large group of people and a fire truck were set up over by the site of the future Fire Station 8, so I wanted to see if I could catch the end of the ground breaking ceremony.

By the time I walked the two miles back there, everyone was gone. They packed up their tent and vanished. But, I enjoyed walking a different path, seeing different sights. During my trek, I found a beautiful large feather on the side of the road, later a smaller one, then almost home, yet a third. Three lucky feathers on one walk. Each feather different, perhaps each with a different good luck charm.


I was meeting my good friend, and world’s greatest realtor, Linda Grossman, on the Square for lunch. We met at The Pantry, and I ordered the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and fried okra. OMG! That’s short for Over the Moon Good! Not only that, but when you sign up for their restaurant rewards and texting program, they’re always sending coupons for discounts, specials, or BOGO. I received a text yesterday for Buy one get one chicken fried steak. Be still my heart! Literally! When Imget the steak, I cut it in half because it’s huge, and bring the other half home. But, Linda didn’t want the other BOGO, she was eating healthy, so I got it to go. Dinner for two more days.


Now, that’s a steak! Seriously, sign up for text coupons at The Pantry, great food, and usually pretty quiet, and not too crowded. Look at that steak. Delicious!

After lunch, we roamed around the Square a little. We visited over at Mom and Pop Pocorn.



The clouds and dark sky rolled in with a few flashes of lightning. Great sky! We took a few cool pictures then skedaddled home.


Another lucky day. Three lucky feathers, fantastic friends, and a fridge overflowing with leftovers. No plans for lunch tomorrow…but I’m free. Call me!
