sunday april 7th,2013
the next stop was on to touch base with the historic site that i am president of this year. the building is open for tours on the first sunday of each month. thee wee 2 docents that knew of Diana and had seen photos of diana but had never seen the elusive diana in person. LOL of course there had to me one more docent on that didn't know of diana.... oh well.... but it worked out well.
from there it was onto the bakery to pick up goody's from the swiss pastry shop in scotch plains nj. for the social hour after the mass service of dignity.
the owner John is a master pastry chef who throughout the years during his training in the late 1950's has made cakes for several verrrrry well known people from around the world when they came to the ny area.
he only uses real ingredients no substitutions ie real dark chocolate not coco, and real wip cream not crisco icing ect. amongst his specialties include chocolate, cinaman, and aprocot rugala .
he always teases me that he prefers it when diana comes in instead of dave.
finally i was on my way up to maplewood to the service.
on the way home i stopped at manny's texas weiner resturant ( a full menu diner) also in maplewood nj for a bite to eat ( a verrry late lunch at about dinner time LOL) the usual waitress who is related to the owner was off but i ordered a burger anyway. (ignor the date stamp as the photo is newer - april 2011 - then stated due to a blond moment with the camera settings. LOL )
then it was home to cook dinner for dad and me ( as diana) in spite of the verrry late lunch i found i could still find room for some home made meat loaf. dad has been verrry accepting and gracious about me being dressed as diana. although he will ask were dave is LOL. i just tell him that dave felt it was time for him to have a prettier dinner companion LOL i am soooo lucky to have such a understanding and loving dad!
hope everyone had a great day with great weather like we had!
