Don't Dress for Dinner

Wow, a second day in as many weeks!  This may be more dates than we had all of last year! Our adventures today took us to Half Shell's Seafood Grill for an amazing lunch.  I love seafood and the restaurant has great reviews, but when we went and I saw they had Roasted Jalapeno Soup, that was it!  A bowl of soup for lunch, no seafood for me. The soup was fantastic, I may have a new favorite restaurant.  Jon had no interest in the creamy soup and ordered the catfish.  

Following lunch we headed over to the Richardson Theatre Centre to see our friend Eddy Herring in Don't Dress for Dinner.  We've attended church with Eddy and his family for the last decade.  They have a son Caleb's age, Blake;  and a daughter Abigail's age, Baylor.  

Eddy played the part of Bernard, who is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, while his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet meal, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? 

Well…. suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s, what a mess! 

the woman whose heart is snares and nets, and whose hands are fetters.
He who pleases God escapes her, but 
the sinner is taken by her.
