This is my favorite season. I got to go on a road trip with my best friend and my fur niece, Mitzi. We had lunch at a great place called Jake's, I had the Bourbon Shrimp. We stopped at a consignment shop, and I found a $70 full length winter robe for $14, along with a new pair of jammies and a night shirt; all told I spent less than $30. We then joined a friend for a long walk and talk in the park, and then drove home, chatting all the way. Life is good.
