Early V Day

Not much is better than some hot lemur tea and a Belgium waffle in the morning for breakfast. The mug was an early Valentines day present. We're not really big into that holiday around here, but a little present is always nice. I guess Joe is using up his presents with new bike parts though, so that makes shopping easy. Tonight we went out to Vin Rouge here in Spokane and used our first "Groupon". Seems like the company is doing fairly well, well enough to pay for a Super Bowl commercial anyways. Nice to save a few bucks and try out a local place. The food was pretty good, would go back again for a special occasion. I had the crab cakes which were actually quite delicious, best I've had so far since moving back to the "east side". This evening we watched the 1962 version of Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates. The acting was pretty terrible but I kind of got a kick out of watching one of my favorite childhood books on the silver screen. It's never quite the same, the book is always better. Joe suffered through the entire thing only to find the money hidden under a loose board at the end (not buried in the backyard next to a tree that was no longer there). Sorry to be the spoiler, but I doubt anyone else will be watching that any time soon.
