That is almost exactly what my mom said yesterday.  We had a nice dinner at
a place called Karen's in the Country.  Both parents really enjoyed it, and
they even let Daddy order off the children's menu.  He doesn't eat a lot
any more, and would prefer not to see it on his plate.  Also my son's
baseball game was cancelled due to rain/snow earlier in the day so we
didn't even have to rush it.
