Mother’s Day present.  My daughter and son in law took me to the Red Lobster in Peoria for lunch today.  We all had the shrimp spectacular promotion.  Awesome!!  Potato breaded and hand breaded shrimp is what I had with coleslaw and baked potato and of course the cheese biscuits which I ate 3 of. My daughter gave me a lovely card and baked a cake for me.  I also received a beautiful card from my son.  My daughter has to work tomorrow, thus the early day presents.

Just a boot skip and a holler up the road from me is this fascinating little town called Creve Coeur.  The funny thing about where I live is one little town after another until you cross the bridge over the Illinois River and you are in Peoria.  But, back to Creve Coeur, I have been noticing this little restaurant tucked off to the side of the road  and for a long time I wanted to take a picture of it.  It is a quaint little country type restaurant and the name is what got me.  It is almost exactly the same as my WV sis’s name except for one letter.


My son in law was kind enough to turn the car around and take me back so I could get a pic of it to send to Rae.

The picture below is kind of spoiled because I am in it but my sis will like it.  lol


It poured down rain in Peoria and I am all bundled up for the weather. 

I hope you all had as nice a day as I did.  Do stay safe and be happy!!



  1. I am so glad that you have that picture here Twin. been a long long time and what a pleasure. Love that little restaurant and if I ever get my hind end there, we'll maybe go.

    Happy Mother's Day dear Beth. I got one gift today..a thick mouse pad with Lady Bianca (aka Admiral) on it done by Snapfish. I LOVE it and her beautiful green gem of a eye shows in the profile view. The oldest was here till this afternoon and for supper last night. I made him my yummy Sloppy Joes. Oh goodness I did a good job this time.

    How are you and the CPAP going along now? My middle boy got one and he's completely used to it after not even a week.
