T STands For Dr. E's FREE Breakfast

Last Saturday, after we left the March For Science,

we came here.  I learned earlier that morning my birthday breakfast (which is served all day) was free with a valid ID.  I forgot to take a photo of the real restaurant we went to, but found this image on the internet.

By this time, it was well after 2 pm and I was so hungry, I could have eaten the menu.

My free breakfast was a Grand Slam.

Why is it the eggs look SO good in the photos?

I asked Sally to show her other tee, the one she wore to the march.  I took at least five photos, then asked her to smile.

Finally, a good photo of her.

Sally ordered a milkshake, but I stuck with water, since I didn't want to pay for coffee, because I had some in my big mug in the car.

The meal finally arrived, and it was all I could do to wait long enough to take a photo of this free meal before diving in.

I took photos of each gift individually, but have not had time to get them off my camera.

From far left: tag and paper from Linda, behind Linda's gift is Patty's, next to the candles is Krisha's gift, card, and die cuts.  Everything else,including all the washi tape came from Chris.

Now it's your turn.  The rules are extremely simple.  Your drink related post may be anything from a photo of a glass, cup, or mug, to an actual drink.  You may choose to share a sketch or a digital, hybrid, or traditional page in your scrapbook, art journal, or altered book.  Maybe you'd prefer to share a tag, or wow us with your photography.  You might choose a postcard or decorated card.  You might even draw an image on a used tea bag.  Or perhaps you prefer to review a place you visited, a movie, or book.  It makes no difference as long as it's drink related.  And don't forget that the more unique and outside the box it is, the better we like it.  Please tie it back here, and please link only to your T post, not your entire blog.  When you link, Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by to visit.   Bleubeard would also like to remind you that your photos may be taken any time, even months or years ago, if you choose.

Since this is the final Tuesday in April, it's time to be thinking about your Second on the 2nd post.  The rules are even more simple.  All you have to do is bring back a post from the past.  Any post, any genre, anything, as long as you have shown it previously on your blog.

Earth Day's March For Science in Wichita, KS

My friend Sally and I attended the March for Science on Earth Day.

Sally is on the right wearing the hat and dark glasses.   She wanted to get there early because she was afraid we wouldn't find decent parking. 

We arrived shortly after 10 am, nearly an hour before the event was supposed to begin.  

We were both surprised by how many people were already there.

Of course that number paled in comparison to how many eventually showed up.

Now I'm going to allow the photos (and signs) do the talking.

It was finally time for the various speakers

to make their way to the podium.

Six speakers in all spoke for nearly an hour.

Of course, by that time I was bored with the speeches

and took photos of the beautiful old Court House.

I love symmetry.

If I'd been further back, I would have gotten it all.

I actually did better with the close-up.

Then it was time for the actual march.

They just kept coming and coming.

Even animals got into the act,

patiently waiting their turn to get into line.

By now, Sally was bored and ready to leave.

We followed the procession in the car for awhile,

but that also bored her.  Thankfully, police were there to block off streets.

Although we didn't march (but I knew we wouldn't be marching because Sally can barely walk from her car to a restaurant), we participated and I got to wear the Earth Day Science tee.  BTW, the one I wore was the only one like it I saw.  So glad Sally bought it before she bought the Wichita one.

Thanks for joining me on this adventure we took on Saturday.
