Happy Mothers Day - I hope you are having a great day!  I was taken out for a lovely lunch by my
oldest daughter and her family - not to the restaurant that we had booked but it was great anyway. 
My daughter and I decided late yesterday that we wanted to go out for a nice lunch today and so
I called to reserve a table for noon at our favorite spot "Bella Bistro".  I was told by who ever it
was that answered the phone that they where full for noon but, they could book us for 1:30.  Well, my daughter and her family go to his family for mothers day  - always have.  1:30 was out of the question.
I asked what time they opened - which was I was told was 11 am.  I asked if we could we have a reservation for then.  No problem the person on the line said - well, guess what - there was a problem!!
When we got got to the restaurant 11 am it wasn't open and according to the information on the door it never opened at 11 am.  It opened at 11:30 every day of the week - not just Sunday - so I can't figure
out where the 11 o'clock came from.  
We were all disappointed and a little irritated (it is very hard getting 3 adults and 2 kids on the same page at the same time and as it was we were 5 minutes late) - so we hooped back into the van and headed off the Costco.  Lucky for us my son-in-law had his eyes open and caught an OPEN sign for another great restaurant.  The moral is "alls well that ends well" - and it will talke me a week to burn off the calories!!
Keeping you in stitches - Marg and Debbi

PS. I guess we know why they weren't full at 11am since they weren't even open yet!
