Pasta & Shopping

This afternoon I had the great pleasure of spending time with Marjorie Mink herself and her husband.  In my typical fashion, we arrived downtown early for our lunch, which offered perfect chance for a photo op.  Spring has officially arrived in Oregon.  Trees are in bloom, we are having a a perfect mix of sunny days and rainy days, and the fountains once again have water in them, making my otter pals appear a little less sad.

We had a perfect pasta lunch at Pastini where we gabbed to our heart’s delight.  It was a pleasure to meet Marjorie’s husband who was quite fashionable, bow tie and all!  We later left Portland’s bustling downtown for the quieter area of Sellwood for a bit of antiquing.

Currently I am frantically trying to find Madeleine’s suit from Vertigo before I trot off to San Francisco for my Hitchcock weekend, but the only grey suit I came across in our search this afternoon was not right, and too big. Sigh. However I did not return empty handed, I came home with a girdle! Making that a grand total of five for me.  A girl can never have too many girdles.  Marjorie came home with a darling angora bolero.  She’s such a doll and I look forward to future get-togethers with her.
