I love that my grandmother and John Shields were gossiping within seconds of meeting. This week has been busy so I'm still posting photos from Thanksgiving week. We took the family to Gertrude's for dinner on Black Friday. It was beyond wonderful. I have people photos verses food photos. I was just too distracted by great company and conversation.
I love listening to my grandmother tell stories.
She was the center of attention.
My godmother Mary T. came up from Virginia for dinner as well. Most of the table had crab cakes, fried oysters, and Doug's fantastic desserts. The Mojo Candy bar has to be on your list if you havent' been to Gertrude's yet.
It was wonderful visiting with John Francis and John Shields and finally introducing them to my sweet Eric. I can't believe it took this long for the introduction. Eric knew I had travelled with these guys to Toronto and L.A. and it was great to finally have my favorite guy meet my favorite guys!
The guys are partners in business and have been partners in life for 17 years and celebrate meeting over Thanksgiving every year. John Francis was working as a social worker in a soup kitchen where John brought food and volunteered on Thanksgiving day in Berkeley. The rest is history. They are wonderful, fabulous people.
Mary T. picked up John's cookbook for a few lucky people.
The museum store at the Baltimore Museum of Art is the decked out for the holidays.
They have a great selection of ornaments and cards. And the baby section is not to be missed.
Eric was surrounded by women. Lucy, Susan, Francie, me and Mary T.
The next photos are just little jewels that were taken over our three days together.
"This is my 'Go To Hell' hat."
Au revoir mon petite grande mere. I miss you already.
