Secrets.......We NEED one here!!
This past weekend......I ran away from home!!! No husband...no kids....YEAH!!! The trip started off a bit rocky....2 hours to go about 5 miles made a trip that should have been 2 1/2 hours into 5, but once we reached our destination, all of that was forgotten!! Our friend Ms. Jane was waiting for all of us with "happy hour" in full swing!! Cold beer, yummy appetizers and good friends!! Couldn't ask for much more! We had a great evening! We did receive some bad news at the end of the evening that our friend Jennifer was sick and was facing emergency surgery, so Kathleen had to leave first thing in the morning, our friend Jennifer did receive the surgery and everything seems to be going very well, so we'll keep her in our thoughts and prayers!! Once we got moving Saturday morning, we went shopping and then off to secrets, which I had never been. OMG!!! It's like you step on to some tropical island!! The water could have been a bit more blue for an island, but that doesn't matter once you get to your table in the middle of the water, so your feet stay in the water while you sip on cold beer, listen to great music and watch the sites......which there are defiantly some sights there. However it does get a bit iffy if you have to use the potty :) While treading though the water, a guy turned and spit darn near down my leg and then the bathroom that was pretty clean 3 hours ago.......smells like a septic tank leaking. Secrets is worth the drive!!! We need one right here in our neck of the woods! After secrets, we went to the horse races. The horses line up a gate that is on a modified Cadillac (which the car is a sight in itself) and they are off......We all did pretty well just about breaking even for betting them all evening.....how did we choose our horses :)....color...name...and then we may have checked the odds. It was a great weekend and we hope to do it again next year!!
