It’s still a holiday, right?

I’m so proud of myself.  I returned the pumpkin pie I bought yesterday at Balducci’s.  It really was horrible.  The crust was soggy, the pumpkin part soupy and not well spiced.  They were completely nice about it though. Even better, outside the store, these guys were back!  The shar peis, aka The Three Sweetest Dogs in the World.  They are actually reserved with strangers I noticed, but I can just tell they are loving with family.  One of them had a cast!  Check out his brother (or sister) giving him some sympathy.  My thanksgiving dinner below.

Howard and I always get Veselka to go and watch something on TV.  I got my pumpkin pie, so happy ending all around.  I know it’s out of focus but I love this particular flashy out of focus blur it does sometimes when I put it on the night snapshot setting.

  1. I had to Google to find out what Veselka was (a food? a restaurant? liquor?) Stacy, do you have any idea how lucky you are to live where you live? I often wonder that when I read about all the amazing things you eat/see/hear/do/buy! And you did the right thing, returning that pie.
    Thanksgiving greetings from Canada!

  2. I do feel lucky. When I get mad about a bad run of luck I remember my apartment and where I live and thank the universe.
