Oh What A Carry On!

So where you been, so-called 'LSP,' if that's your real name, which we doubt, you mutter darkly. Well I'll tell you, in Dallas, celebrating my sister BW's birthday.

That meant going to Highland Park Village (HPV) for some scoff at "MiCo's", where you can sit outside and watch the parade go by, and what a parade it is. Bentleys, serious Mercedes, the occasional racing car, so helpful for navigating Turtle Creek!, and all of that. Well done, MiCo's, for providing a box seat.

"Steal Those For Me."

Then saunter across the way to Cafe Pacific and enjoy the afternoon bar. If you're smart, you won't spend all the money you'd saved up for duck season waders... on the way, gaze at some jewelry. 

A Typical HPV Interior

"Steal those for me, could you please," said one well known English blogger and author, via the miracle of modern telephonic magic. I resisted the strong temptation.

A Real Crowd Pleaser...

But did "The Widow" pour in abundance at the cheery cafe? It most certainly did! Then it was time to head back to base and a Halloween party for the local ghouls and ghosts. Plenty of smiles from face to face to face, and big fun.

Shout loud,

A sunny hello!

LSP - acronym for ~ Living So Pretentiously!

You clearly didn’t quaff nearly enough champers! The Pink Panther would have had those diamonds lifted in a shot.

What a carry on, indeed!

LL said...

Bitty Woo is an international woman of mystery (sort of like Jules) and I would expect her to abscond with the ice all on her own. Jules charms the diamonds off the mannequins and trades them for boots and lifted 4x4 trucks. It sounds like a typical upper class afternoon hobnobbing with the great and near great in Dallas. The only thing that might have tipped the scales in your favor would be the presence of Blue Jewel Thief. Naturally he is a marked dog, the police would respond if he showed up, etc.

LSP said...

Jules, you're right. Not nearly enough of The Widow to get past store security and off with the diamonds. Next time. And I'll be sure to pass on your best to 'Ezer!

LSP said...

LL, BJT should've been there, good point. We would've had to have disguised him as a "one percenter" but I'm not quite sure what that looks like. A sleeping Jeb! mask?

"Don't worry, it's just Jeb!, looking at the diamonds, before he goes to sleep at the Club."
"But of course, sir!"

Then off, fast, and into the waiting Ferrari before they work it out.

A belated Happy Birthday, to your sister!

LSP said...

I'll pass that on. Thanks, Linda!

Brig said...

Your sis is a beauty!

So, it's too late to ask you to steal an extra Ferrari for me? Gruntessa likes blue. Birthday wishes to beautiful Brunella Weatherwax, the Lone Star Sister.

LSP said...

Thanks, Brig, I'll pass that on!

LSP said...

Grunt, it's never too late, surely. I'll get on it.
