This afternoon I met Tracey, Mary Ellen and Mary Ellen’s boyfriend, Doug, in Branford. Our date was arranged before my big announcement so we had lots to talk about.
Tracey and Mary Ellen work in the control room at Channel 8. Tracey directs, Mary Ellen assists.
Tracey is the only director I ever worked with who could get away with calling me “Peaches.”
Life is different… better… when the director tells you to, “Standby Peaches.” I loved that.
I miss them both.
Our date was at La Cuisine in Branford. First time.
We met at 12:30 pm, but three of us had pancakes! Life is a lot more social when it’s happening around the breakfast table. And, to me, breakfast is defined by food, not time of day.
Our famous buttermilk pancakes topped with a fresh pineapple compote, toasted coconut, and chopped hazelnuts.
I brought my tablet computer to show off some websites (including the one for my own house for sale). No WiFi at La Cuisine.
Actually, that’s not correct. There is WiFi. It’s just not public WiFi. However, with a minimum of cajoling the boss shared the password and online we went!
Score one for La Cuisine by being extra nice to a customer and making killer pancakes!
Why am I only finding out about this place on my way out-the door?
