There is nothing blacker than my cat, Storm! Not even my rubber shoes. Go to Anna's for more Project Black.
The statue is that of Nathanael Greene, a war hero, and it stands in Greensboro, NC. We saw it when we went there recently for a family get-together. I am ever vigilant for a possible blog post, so out came the camera.
This is the menu from the restaurant that bears his name. If you ever go to Greensboro, I recommend this place. I had fish and chips, and it was soooooo good. My son was sorry that he didn't order it too! Fish is the best thing to order when mr. kenju's present, if you are not in a mood to share. He doesn't eat anything that swims in the sea - except shrimp and lobster - so your fish is safe from his wandering fork.
I'll tell you how bad it can be. Some years ago, mr. kenju was leaving a company with which he had been district manager for 7-8 years. His co-workers decided to throw a party and they reserved a room at a local steak place. As we were being served dinner that night.... just as mr. kenju's meal was set in front of him, 12-14 men came at him with their forks raised, and all of them took a bite from his plate. All of the wives (me included) were laughing so hard! I learned that he had been filching food from their plates for years and this was their way of getting back. It was SO funny (but embarrassing, too!) Wouldn't you think it taught him a lesson? Noooooo, it didn't. So if you are ever sharing a meal in a restaurant with us - order fish!
Thanks to the magic of pre-posting, you'll get new posts for the next few days. I may not get to visit or comment, but I'll be thinking about you!
