Well, our second Trixie’s All Fun Book Club meeting was even more fun than the first — thanks in large part to amazing homemade ice cream provided with love by our neighbors, the Little Red Bike Cafe. We were served a banana split, of all things, with a scoop of salted caramel (Umm, yes), vanilla, and the piece de resistance — cherry coconut with chocolate chunks (unbelievable!). I scream, you scream, we all scream for Little Red Bike Ice Cream, yaaaaaay!
We discussed Jennifer Weiner’s “Goodnight Nobody” among other things, including that feeling of being a fish out of water that the author evokes so well. We also laughed about our various husbands’ choice of attire and what it’s like to lose yourself in roles like “wife,” “mother,” and “partner.” We’re sure almost everyone has experienced that at one time or another. Next month we’ll meet on Thursday, 10/18 and we’ll be reading the Nicholas Sparks favorites “The Notebook” and “The Wedding” if we can get to them both. Mark your calendars!
In the salon, we bemoaned Wayne Newton’s surprising lack of dance talent in “Dancing With the Stars” and the fact that the judges were too starstruck to vote him off. You would think a guy who’s been entertaining for his whole life would have picked up a few moves, eh? Oh well, thank goodness he can sing! Danka Schoen, Wayne, baby.
