The food was great and the waitresses were friendly.
I still keep track of my calories on Sparkpeople, but I didn't want to have to guess how much gravy I had and how many calories were in the sausages. I hunted through the options on Sparkpeople and found one I figured would have at least as much calories as my breakfast. Notice that for lunch Cliff and I split a small Blizzard at Dairy Queen. The reason we split one instead of getting two Mini-Blizzards is that it's cheaper that way. OK, maybe we both get a bite or two more, also. It's 4:30 now and I am still not hungry, so if I ate nothing for supper my calorie total would be great. I'm not going to skip supper, though.
We had an appointment with a lawyer after breakfast.
Then we went pickup shopping, just for fun. Cliff has always preferred to drive a pickup, but once the kids were eight and ten years old it was impossible for our family to fit in a truck, so we switched to cars. Our last two cars have been very economical to drive, and trucks don't get nearly as good gas mileage, but I say if he wants a truck, he should have one. He is very specific in what he wants: Although he's always been a Ford man, he says the newer Fords are ugly. So now he wants a Chevy. It has to be white and it has to have cloth seats; we are both sick of leather seats that make us sweat in summer and freeze us in winter. He wants the extended cab, and he wants four-wheel-drive.

We went to a dealer in Blue Springs where Cliff talked to a salesman in the rain about a 2004 pickup for $18,000. WHAT???? For an old truck like that?
We are in no hurry, so we'll have fun looking.
I have to tell you, though, that I really did fall in love with that 2011 truck. But that's just me.
