How hard could it be? Turned out to be pretty doggone difficult. I could start the engine. Period. None of the other buttons or levers would cooperate. I pulled, pushed, and turned this knob and that switch. Nada. And so John sits exactly where he was parked. This does not bode well for our future relationship, I must say.
Leaving John sitting there to sulk, it was back to the kitchen for me. The Ladies arrived and I must say that dinner was, as Linda said, fabulous! The pork roast topped with caramelized onions and balsamic vinegar was done to perfection. Lidia's mashed potatoes cooked together with green beans and garlic, drizzled with olive oil, was a tasty change from the usual. Linda's crisp green salad was delicious, and Arden's fruit salad was a perfect ending to the meal. Good company makes everything taste better, and I was in fine company last night.
"Sit, stay, John. We'll talk about this tomorrow."
