Brunch with The Beast

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Uncle Frank, Oct 17, 2005.

  1. Nancy and I joined Philippe Roger and his wife for brunch in the fair city of Los Gatos yesterday. Naturally, I brought along the d70 with the 28-70... not exactly the lightest walk around combo, but hard to beat for snaps.

    Not to rub it in for those of you facing inclement weather, but it's still summer-like in California. It was a bright sunny day, with temps in the 80s, and the fountain at the park was filled with kids playing in the water.

    The park is a popular venue for the canine crowd...

    ... and also hosts a farmer's market.

    Here's a table decorated by some beautiful tomatoes...

    I always thought those were called onions!
    After all they make your eyes tear up just like a onion does because you can have them.
  3. Maybe you can have them, but those onions aren't on my diet :Depressed.

    Like I said, my eyes are tearing up because I can't have them

    As good friend of mine said, just because your on a diet doesn't mean you can't look at the menu. :cool:

  7. Excellent shots, espeically the tomatoes (both types) :wink:
  8. Or as I often say, you can go to the zoo and enjoy looking at the elephants without bringing one home :wink:.
  9. Thanks, Leigh! It's always a delight to get your comments :smile:.

    No, you just say, 'I was thinking of how much I love you dear' (of course, to that, Janie would reply 'OK, now tell me what you were really thinking' :rolleyes:).

    Very nice shots Frank. Looks like you all had a bloomin' good time. :smile:
  11. Hey Frank,

    Lovely shots of the kids and the dog... but I must admit that the tomatoes look pretty good and appetizing, as well. :wink: Now, is that what people refer to when they ask whether it is pronounced "TomAAAto" or "TomEEEEto"? :rolleyes: :smile:

    I think the poster who mentioned "onion" must have been confused with a "oh, none of your business" response, said fast... :confused: :biggrin:

    It was a gorgeous day indeed, and thanks again for taking us out. It's always a good time. :smile: :biggrin:
