Joanne's Quick and tasty

The supper club was out today at Joanne's quick and Tasty.
Yes, it is appropriately named.
We had our orders taken at 4:39 and out food arrived at 4:52.
Dishes were removed promptly, and dessert came in a flash, and so did the bills.
They checked on us, and had lemon for the water, which some club members like.
I had coffee, nice size mug, piping hot.
No food complaints at all... Two had the special, I had a lobster poutine, and number 4 had poached haddock and mashed potatoes.
Lobster poutine was very good indeed. One of the better I have had. Smaller fries seem best for poutine. Desserts: mince pie, peanut butter pie, trifle, and lemon pie. All very good indeed.

Upon arrival there was a smell of "farm" manure. I understand it is common, Apparently we got used to it. We certainly lingered a long time, and enjoyed our stay.
When we left, two of us decided to hide around the corner and scare the next Supper Club member. Problem was the people inside could see us through a large window. The plan failed, we got startled instead, and made staff and a few patrons laugh. Guess we weren't thinking ...

How does the Chase the Ace game work?

Image result for chase the ace

You buy a ticket. 
Much like a 50-50 draw, if you get your ticket picked, you get a 20% cut of the weekly ticket sales, plus a chance to pick a card. 
Pick the ace of spades and you win the jackpot. 
Don’t pick the ace, and 30% of ticket sales are added to the jackpot while the remaining 50% gets divided among the benefiting charities.

Kiss and tell-e-phone

Image result for kiss me

I joined my Dad tonight and went to the local cafe for a tea.
Working on a cell phone were Mink and his light brother with the heavy voice.
"The phone no longer rings.. been a couple days" ... they reported.
My Dad told them" give it to her, she'll fix it", as he pointed towards me.

The brother said "If you can fix it, I'll give you a kiss".
I had it in my hand for maybe 6 seconds and laid it back on the table, announcing it was fixed.
They didn't believe me, so they called the phone.
Ring, Ring !

So he kept his words, and came over and kissed me.
