Weather for ducks........

Friday was a wet miserable day, perfect for ducks.  We went to a memorial service for our friends dad.  It was lovely and I shed many tears with them, as the stories they had to tell about her dad were lovely.  I hadn't seen her two boys for a while.  Got a bit of a shock as they are not boys but fine young men.  Made me feel old actually.

Anyhow the funeral home had limited parking, so dh had to park a five minute walk away.  Despite having an umbrella, we got drenched, right down to our underwear.  Got out of dh's truck to see a delightful wet patch where I had been sitting!!!!  We went out for a fish and chip supper, had to use my car, as there was no way I was sitting on a wet seat.

We need to find another fish and chip shop, as although the fish and chips aren't bad, the place is icky.  Cleaning is not at the top of their priorities and the lady who owns the place looks as though she is sucking on lemons the whole time.  You know when your server comes back during your meal to ask if everything is alright?  You know for a fact that this woman really does not care one way or another. 

We are going to check out Orangeville and hopefully find a decent fish and chip shop.  Do you enjoy fish and chips?


I posted a book review here yesterday.

Should you ever go up the Bruce Peninsula to Tobermory, Gill, check out DNA Fish & Chips (on Hwy before the "Tub"). Fantastic Whitefish done up in a Herb Batter with yummy fries .. huge meal for $10.00.

Don't worry about getting wet...you grew up in England so you are still waterproof!

I love what we call 'Fish and Chips' but know it's different than yours, and one day, I really hope to get the chance to try the real thing!

I always assume that fish and chips is similar to our fish we get at Long John Silvers...and I do like it....
