Michelle & Joe

Last night we went out with our friends Michelle and Joe. Michelle has been in Calgary for work, but was home this past week. She and Joe are leaving on Saturday morning and we probably won't see them again until September, so we planned to get together for the evening. We met up at Emma's and sat on the back patio for some drinks and conversation. Michelle seemed happy and relaxed.



She said she was looking forward to getting back to Alberta and away from the freakishly hot weather we've had for the past few days. She was also very keen on showing off her toes. Nice colour!



Joe has finished school for the summer and he's looking forward to a change of scenery. For some reason, this picture is quite dark. I had another one (that was just as dark) but he looked like he was picking his nose. He swore it was a scratch; not a pick.




The drink special was margarita and we were enjoying our fair share. We then realized the hockey game was on, so we went inside to watch on the big TV and to order something to eat.



Ooo, 1-0 for Carolina at this point. The Hurricanes ended up winning in overtime. So sorry Harmonia.

Jim ordered wings, Michelle and Joe both ordered nachos. Joe's with meat, Michelle's without of course. I got the veggie wrap with a side salad. It was surprisingly good.



More conversation. We're a bunch that can eat alot, drink a lot and talk even more.




We then decided to walk downtown to RC's and get ice cream. This place is really neat. It's done up in 50's style with a jukebox playing 'golden oldies', chrome tables and chairs, stools at the counter, posters on the wall advertising Beatles and Elvis concerts - for $5! They have all kinds of cool memorabilia. When I tried to take a picture of us there, we were told 'no pictures allowed'. Anal!

So here we are outside. Jim is still eating his ice cream cone. Oooo, now that's exciting.


We finished up shortly after that. Jim and I had to work in the morning and Michelle & Joe had to finishing packing and do all the last minute little things that had to be done. I'll miss them while they are gone. I hope September isn't too long in arriving .

So the evening was over, and Jim was in fine form as usual.

Yea, that's my man. He's so classy.
