The New Picnic Basket

This nifty insulated picnic cooler was just begging to go on a jaunt. 

So I packed it up with sliced chicken and smokey Gouda cheese on whole wheat sesame buns, and some other typical picnic goodies, and off we went in search of adventure.  

But turned out that we had forgotten that it was Saturday, and the first day after several rainy-ish days, so everywhere we went, there were people standing in the way of our cameras. 

We finally found this lovely spot to have our lunch. 

There was even a pack animal to take away our trash.  Best picnic ever!  ;->

    I recognize the burro from the movie, Sister Sara. . .

      Without looking it up . . . methinks it was “Two MULES for Sister Sara”. And I’m thinking Shirley MacLaine? Is that right?

      Later on . . .

      Pretty good guess, ya?

      Plot Summary
      Clint Eastwood is a hard-hitting high plains drifter who rides into town and single-handedly rescues a local nun (Shirley MacLaine) from a gang of attackers. After meeting a band of Mexican revolutionaries bent on resisting the French occupation of Mexico, the cowboy and Sister Sara decide to join forces with the freedom fighters and set off on a deadly mission to capture the enemy’s garrison. But along the way, a steamy romance develops between them when the soft-spoken hero discovers the nun is not what she seems. Ending with a violent climax at the well-protected fort, this action-packed western classic cemented Eastwood’s status as a true cinematic superstar!

    And that, Boys & Girls, is why she is known far & wide as (drum roll): DR J!

    Forgot it was Saturday? It’s easy to do and one of the only difficulties of being retired. Perhaps adventure on another day.

    I love the colour combination. I can’t remember the last time I had a picnic. At least you enjoyed it!
