How Time Flies

It's hard to believe that it’s been over a week since our last post.

Last Friday, we were invited to TBF’s for dinner. We had the starters and a drink up in their so called fishbowl (roof terrace) and went down to the covered balcony afterwards for a lovely dinner. As you might have read in previous posts, Mr. and Mrs. TBF are excellent cooks. We were treated to fried zucchini blossoms with a creamy filling as a starter, followed by a zucchini carpaccio, then a delicious lamb (and two extra pork steaks for the boys) from the grill served with young potatoes swirled in butter and parsley. Of course, delicious wines accompanied the whole meal. I couldn’t eat another bite so I stuck to coffee, but OrangeX and TBF couldn’t resist having a banana split after dinner.

While chatting, I was told by Mrs. TBF that one of my readers, The Medium Swede, thought I should change my profile picture. I won’t go into details, but thanks for the compliment TMS. Oh, and TBF…. Here’s proof that OrangeX doesn’t have his mouth open on every picture. Boy, you really had an influence on him!



We had a lovely evening and left TBF’s around 2 am only to get up at 6:30 am again to pack and catch our flight to Vienna (details in the next post). You’ll find a few more pictures of our evening at TBF’s here.

Those of us who wait for your posts know exactly how long it is but...as we say, it's always worth the wait to hear about your galavants. I love seeing the pics of you, Orange-X and your friends. I'd recognize you anywhere :)

Please note that Mrs. TBF and I both wore orange for Orange-X! Plus...orange glasses, candles, placemats...and...he wore pink! Go figure!

Ginnie: Wait until you've read The Vienna Connection. Dales also wants to post about his weekend alone and then we still have a recipe to publish. It's always a pleasure to post pictures of friends that you really care for. :)

TBF: HA! And men keep thinking it's hard to figure women out!

Sorry, I noticed a few typos. Here it is again:

Okay TBF's, I really appreciated all the orange accessories including your shirts, but...do you know the movie "Pretty in Pink"? I thought I'd give it a try to for once not wear orange, but pink instead. Maybe I had the idea of trying pink to support my efforts in keeping my mouth shut when you take pictures. Now I'l be training myself in looking less serious. Hard job! Next time I'll be back to my usual me and wear orange and have my mouth wide open again.

CS, trying to remember my comment to Mrs. TBF. Glad it was a compliment!;-)

TMS: I'm sure Mrs. TBF can tell you what it was.
