I got my Gloria's fix today!
Beth and I did our usual: we split the "Nancy's Favorite" platter. (Yes, it IS aptly named "Nancy's Favorite" (but only on the lunch menu).)

We left a generous tip... for two reasons: 1) we split the meal, and 2) we stayed so long (though not as long as sometimes).

That makes me want to tell folks that when you stay at a restaurant a long time, leave a big tip. I mean, some folks come to the tea room and stay three hours (yes, three hours) and leave a dollar tip. Hello?! The waiters refill your drinks every so often, and well, you're holding up that table. Grr.

Oh, I recently read on Facebook (by an angry FB friend) that because of the economy Oprah was suggesting folks just leave a 10% tip at restaurants. Boy that made me mad at her. Ah, but then I read that that Oprah 'tip' was just a rumor. So don't be mad at Oprah for something she didn't do (say).

In closing - and having nothing to do with tipping... here's a picture I like...One reason I like this picture so much is that Caroline looks EXACTLY like Elizabeth did at that age.


And so sweet. mm.

I LOVE that picture. It warms my heart. Love it, love it.

And I've gotten better about tipping, but I used to think that you were supposed to leave $2.... no matter the bill. So that's what I always left. I didn't know about 15% rules or doubling the tax or anything like that. (This was in high school and college). Can you believe?!

The first presidential debate almost got me off the Trump Train. Well, I was a reluctant Trump person from the beginning. I didn't vote...
