My LAST Visit With My Fiancée

"Last" = Most recent.
"Last" = Final.
While not my "last visit to Seattle" nor the "last time my fiancée will pick me up from the airport", this is the last time I will be visiting Cora out in Seattle as "my fiancée."  My next flight out there will not me a visit.  At 2.5 weeks away, it will be for our wedding.
So we had to get some important things done while I was out there. Iron-Horse-01Very near Cora's house, this guy has a little pasture right in the middle of the suburbs.  In the pasture is a mule, a goat, and a horse.  You'll notice that there are no front supports.  That  dude must have a lot of junk in it's trunk.  I've driven by that thing a couple of times EVERY SINGLE TRIP, but this is the first time I've gotten around to stopping for pictures.

Cora and I then did a little shopping…
Dollar-Store
No, not at the 40 cent store, silly.  Next to it a Vince's Italian Restaurant.
Vince's Our "rehearsal dinner" is going to more of a "pre-reception" where everyone attending the wedding is welcome to show up at the breakfast room in the hotel.  And we tried a couple of different pizza places.  Vince's won hands down.  Their "Vince's Special" – Pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms & black olives baked in a brick oven.  Yummy.  Kicked the heck out of my childhood pizza joint, that has a store in the area, SHAKEY's.
Later in the weekend, we went over to my future mother-in-law's new place to check it out.Moving
Gwen & Cora tested out the new reclining loveseat.  I helped solve the riddle of the fan, figured out the dishwasher, figured out the gate on the trash can enclosure (and then realized that there was a 4 foot wide opening in the side of the enclosure to just walk thru) and got the sliding closet door back on the track.
Listen-Buster-2 Ooops!  Looks like I'm in trouble.  I'm getting "the finger".  No, honestly, Cora & Gwen where tons of help, too.  They just tuckered themselves out, and needed a bit of a site.I was just kidding.  Honest.
And we did manage to play a couple of games of Harry Potter Clue (we each won one) and Mille Bournes (they'd never played before, so it wasn't really fair, but they did start getting the hang of it.)
And then, **POOF**, the next thing I know, I'm back in my condo, talking to Cora on the phone.
I'm going to love being a family.

Sounds fabulous! And the kicker is the last sentence. "I'm going to love being a family." Cora and Gwen are pretty darn lucky, with an attitude like that!

P.S. My son, during his 8 months of engagement (he got married in May) referred to his fiance' as his ex-girlfriend. Never failed to get a laugh, and she loved it too!

I was gonna wish you luck and all that happy horseshit, but when I got to the part about Mille Bornes, I was like, "OMG I LOVE THAT GAME!"

But seriously, good luck and have a great wedding/reception!

If it's an Italian restaurant, make sure to pronounce it as "VEEN-CHAY"

Families are great, aren't they?

Wow! So close now!!!

I heart that horse sculpture. It makes me want to try it but I know I'd just end up getting tetanus off some rusty metal.
