More random E

In following the tradition of Clare we return again to E Friday, where I post photos of my darling granddaughter E, because VG really likes to look at these pics.

E and her mom were down visiting last week. It was a little cold here, but not as bad as back at their house in Portland. We did have sunshine, and of course the first thing she wanted to do was run outside and hit the swing. She pulled her shoes off, because after all ‘it’s OK to go barefoot at Grammie’s’ and ran out the door. She was back in a few seconds because the stones outside were just a little too cold for those bare feet. She ended up with a sweatshirt and mittens, leaving the heavy winter wear in the closet for their return north.

And after swinging for a while she made nice hot frog head soup at the stove. (somebody gave us this little group of clay frogs playing musical instruments, which I think is a popular piece of junk to pick up in Tijuana, since it does not really fit in with our decorations inside it has been relegated out to the garden, where the heads have all broken off as it gets tossed around. E puts them in her pot to cook up on the stove when she comes by)

Mom wanted to hit her favorite Mexican restaurant, which was done right after they got in from the airport. E wanted to hit her favorite restaurant, Red Robin, which was done the next day. However, in the car on the way she was very defiant about not wanting to go to RR. After Grammy discussed the chocolate milk there she did agree to go, but warned that after this she never wanted to go back there again. Unfortunately it looks like that desire will come true, as there was a sign on the door indicating that location was closing due to lack of business. It’s on the corner of Sahara and Decatur, where the Chili’s across the street just closed the day before, the Circuit City also resides, as well as several other big stores that have recently closed. A sign of the economy I guess, if the places people usually visit often are ending up closing due to lack of customers. I guess lots of people are cutting back, including the former employees of those business places. Anyway, E didn’t get chocolate milk (she never does) but a regular cup of milk in a RR cup, along with a cheeseburger.

She seemed happy with that.
