So we went to preview an auction this weekend and were able to pick up a check from the auction house for the old couch! Lo and behold someone paid 450.00 for it! So the couch just keeps giving… I hope the new owners have as much fun with it as we did! There were so many memories created while on that couch…the ghost story that just keeps growing, the memorable guest experiences, like the Thanksgiving that one of our guests got so drunk at dinner that she tried to take off her pants in the middle of the kitchen after she spilled red wine on them , while my gay housekeeper screamed NOOOO!!!!This is just the tip of the iceberg of stories that couch could tell! You know it occurs to me this is a very interesting life to be living. So many different, and lovely people, every day is a new story, and new experience. I cannot imagine what it would be like to inn-less…it would be very boring after this. So lets talk about food now! This has been a very wet year so our produce has kinda fizzled out… I am really looking forward to the apple season, which is already starting! Time for pancakes, with caramel and apples and cinnamon… apple pie… apple cobbler… mmmm. stuffed apple dumplings… oh my I am so hungry I have to stop now!
