We were able to pick up Spousal Unit's car today. The good news is that we have enough money for food for the rest of the month. Blackie, the car's name, is not cheap to fix. Luckily, the car was free, a gift from Spousal Unit's father. True, 20 years old, but Mercedes tend to last a long time. And are fun to drive.
Our planned trip for the weekend is still on.
We are taking a road trip to Brussels, Belgium. Spousal Unit has a meeting there next week and asked if I wanted to get away for the weekend.
I have spent the majority of the day researching the sites in Brussels. I have never been before.
I really want to see some of the museums, the architecture and the "infamous" fountain "Mannikin Piss" It is a centuries old fountain of a naked little boy. Well, the name of the fountain says it all.
Boo hoo. The Royal Botanical Gardens won't be open until Mid-March. The gardens are a wonder, all iron and glass over more than 6 acres, built in the 1800's. Maybe I can entice the Spousal Unit to return. Hmmmmm.
I am really looking forward to this trip and will keep you posted.
I am not bringing the laptop so this will probably be my last post until this coming Wednesday.
Hey Gal Pal, Sunshine. I am going to try to find a decent Belgium beer. grin grin.
Food, beer, sights, and impressions to follow.
