Tyeing up the Loose Ends

This will be my only photo from the 4th of July. I've been through my pictures several times and decided that most of those people don't really want to be featured here. 

Let's just say there was lots of food, lots of drinking - excuse me? did I really drink half a bottle of 1800 tequila by myself? How did I manage to feel okay the next day? Wow. I had a great time. Yes. Indeed I did. Apparently. Lots of swimming - so much  that my back muscles were complaining the next day when I stretched. Fireworks. Music. Fun and laughter.

Ended the evening with a phone call from DD - she was stranded by the side of the road with a blown out tire. Will the auto expenses never end this year? Two new tires purchased the next day and then her gang was on its way back to Worcester. 

We went out for seafood one last time before going to visit with some old friends. Had a very hot and long drive home on Tuesday. If you are someone who ever drives the northeast corridor, I can highly recommend a stop here for food:

Reins is located in Vernon, Connecticut just outside of Hartford. We've been stopping here for years. I had a reuben and side of pickled beets. DH had the brisket and side of heart stopping Mac n Cheese. No blueberry shortcake on Tuesday. Darn. I was just going to order that and skip the sandwich.

Sounds like there was fun had by all over the holiday weekend! Getting a call from anyone on the side of the road creates a little anxiety in me - glad it wasn't more than a blown tire.
I will have to keep the name of the Deli in mind, just incase I find us on a hockey tournament in that area (we always seem to have a coach or a parent who is a foodie).
Take care!

We have the Rein's Menu in the glove compartment. I spend the whole time we're in Connecticut calculating when to call in our order. My dad has a standing order for a pound of fatty pastrami (it's called something else) with anyone who drives from PA to ME. :) (I'm a chopped liver girl myself.)
