Wisdom gained

On the way home from Church this morning I stopped to buy the DBEM's magazine which contains her weekly dose of Royal News.   Right next to the corner store is the local Fish and Chip shop, The Ancient Mariner" and as usual they have a board outside with a wise and funny saying on it.  This one tickled my fancy and seemed worthy of photographic record.

This afternoon Kathy and I went to Little & Friday cafe in Newmarket.  Obviously very popular, the place was crowded but the Lemon Meringue Pie was delicious and well worth the wait.    Strange name for a cafe isn't it?   I asked Kathy if it was the names of the owners but not so she said and made some enquiries.  Apparently it is so called because initially, the self taught baker/proprietor Kim Evans opened in a "little" shop on a "Friday".   Well, if my nephew and his wife can name their new baby girl London, I guess Ms Evans can call her cake shop Little & Friday :-)

  3. I love that blue against the white of your Quaker Friendship piece. It will be quite striking. I too went to the library today; libraries are some of my favourite places and I had the good luck to find the three books on my list. I also look like my mother; I can even see it myself. That saying is so true...I usually try to make sense of whatever I am agreeing to, but just wind up clicking that button. Glad you enjoyed your outing.

  4. I love lemon meringue pie! Thank you for finding out the story behind the cafe name too.
    Don't get me started on baby names. I run a Toddler Group and I've become very good at smiling fixedly and writing down the little darling name!

  5. Love the board! I look for interesting coffee shops on my travels, a good one was the Blue Banana in Lostine, Oregon. I must do a blog post about it, hard to describe in a few words. Glad you are back, Margaret, I missed your blog.
