Scott was good looking and could make her laugh. It didn’t hurt that he was also an investment banker according to his singles dating profile.

After seeing each other for six months, Scott wanted to take their relationship to the next level.

“My life is an open book,” he said. “I have nothing to hide.”

Still, there were pages Amelia wasn’t allowed to see. So she hired a private investigator to find out more about him. It was money well-spent.

It didn’t take long for Amelia to know that he was actually married with kids and a used car salesman.

While He Was Sleeping

It might look weird but it was a decorative plant equipped with a hidden camera.

Roy put it on top of the bookcase to spy on unusual activities happening inside the house while he was fast asleep.

He wondered if his wife who died recently was haunting him. Since she passed away, he noticed that sometimes the bathroom light would be on, books on the shelf rearranged, and leftover food disturbed in the refrigerator when he woke up in the morning.

What the camera revealed was quite a surprise. There was no ghost after all. It was actually him sleepwalking.

Grandma Rose

Grandma Rose was always in charge and ruled the roost.

Her house was the gathering place for the holidays. Indefatigable as a host, she made the best turkey and pies.

Old age somehow finally caught up with her. At 70, she could barely walk without a cane.

On Labor Day weekend, we invited her to the annual family picnic in the park.

“I think I’d pass,” she said. “The hill is too much for my knees.”

“We can use a wheelchair.”

“You know, I don’t want to be pushed around.”

“Don’t worry, Grandma,” I said. “We’ll be pushing you up.”

Ten years ago, Laura thought of finding her prince in Eric.

Her close friends begged to disagree. They regarded him as a player who used his good looks and charm to get his way with women.

Still, Laura saw something good in him. Against their advice, she took a leap of faith and decided to marry Eric thinking she could change him.

She was glad to follow her heart. Eric beat the odds and proved to be a great husband and father to their two kids.

If only he knew how fix a broken gazebo, it would have been perfect.

Mmm Monday: A Tasty Treat

Please share a photo of your favorite delicacy by clicking Mr. Linky below. Thank you.

Nova Scotia Lobster
Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada


Nova Scotia Lobster

It’s been said that you haven’t really been to Nova Scotia if you haven’t tried its lobster.

And so it was what I had for lunch when we stopped at Halifax on the way to Prince Edward Island. From the tank, I caught eye of a humongous one and picked it thereby sealing its fate. It was later served on a platter with risotto on the side.

It was a real treat. I truly enjoyed it coming in one piece and maintaining its integrity as opposed to a hamburger where the patty originated from hundreds if not thousands of unidentified cows.

Halifax is the capital of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. After strolling along its historic waterfront for a couple of hours, we left and headed to Prince Edward Island where we stayed for the long weekend.
