Lunch or Dinner

Whatever you call it we were invited to the 1 o’clock meal at Susan and Mikes. Fish and salad for lunch …yum.
Roads to susans
The road up there was a little icy….but the sun was out and it felt so good to be blinded see the sun.
Another Road to Susans
They live further in the boonies than we do and the road gets narrower as you go.  We met one snowmobiler and no vehicles.

We were a little late…took a wrong turn. Eventually we took the correct right turn. We were never lost  LOST we knew where we were and how to get home.

Susan and Mike lived across the street from us when we lived in Regal Estates in Moorhead Minnesota in the mid 1970’s.  We have kids the same age…she cried when she put Chadd on the bus for Kindergarten…I just waved happily goodbye to Trica.  So we have been friends a good long time.

We always exchange Birthday and Christmas Gifts.
Gingham Shiny Brites from Susan
Guess what?  Shiny Brites with Red Gingham Check design from the Poloron Corporation.  They purchased the Shiny Brite Division from Eckmar about 1974 and went out of business in the early 1980's.  A Poloron Trademark is on the box a red circle with a large P and the word Poloron.

Wonderful gift, wonderful lunch and wonderful friends.

For the record we are lunch and supper people.  We have lunch in the afternoon and supper at 6 PM.

  1. We're lunch and supper people also. When I was a child, it was dinner and supper, left over from my mother's farm childhood.

  2. It is always so nice to get together and keep in touch with old friends. Growing up we had lunch and supper. Now we call it lunch and dinner. Love your new ornaments.

  8. I grew up in WI and we always had dinner and supper. Lunch is a fancyschmancy word I have only recently used. My forebears were farmers too and the field workers needed dinner at noon because of their heavy work. I am finally getting used to using the word lunch. What a snob.

  9. Good you are out and about. Here that much snow would cause everything to come to a screeching, sliding halt.

  10. We do lunch and dinner, you're a brave soul driving on icy roads. I don't think I've ever seen gingham ornaments before.

  11. Gingham Shiny Brites? Who knew! They are as lovely as they are unique.

    On the farm, the noon meal was dinner, and the evening meal was supper.

  12. Lunch and supper/dinner people here. Lunch rarely before 1pm and supper usually after 6, and many times closer to 7 or 8. If no one else wants to make it, they have to wait until I get around to it;-)

  14. You do the right thing by getting out. Too many people just stay in the house and only go out when they have to.

  15. I'm not sure I've ever used the word supper. Lunch and dinner here.

  16. Lunch and dinner here but lunch and supper when I was growing up. And my grandma on the farm always had dinner at noon (on the dot!) and a "little supper" about 6.

  19. Lunch and either dinner or supper. I would come to either call. ;) Seemed to be used interchangeably when I was growing up, but I probably hear dinner more now.
    What a perfect gift for you!!! That's a good friend. :)

  22. I say lunch and supper too! How nice to remain friends all these years. Sounds like a great time and what a perfect gift for you. Love the gingham check.

  23. What a great view of your scenery...I love the snow. On the other hand, I had the windows open today but we have high fire danger too. I'm trying to enjoy it here as I am hoping it is my last winter here and that next winter I will be in the frozen North! And on top of the ground if you get my drift. What wonderful friends you have and I love your new Shiny Brights...I love gingham too. I eat twice a day...once in the morning but some would call it near lunchtime and then again about the time the news comes on.
    It works for me. Toodles!

  24. Beautiful shiny brites - what a great find/gift! We are also lunch and supper people and are always perplexed if somebody invites for dinner (what time?) Hee Hee!

  25. Some people have a knack for finding just the right gift. I am NOT such a person but I wish I were. Your friend obviously is and did find a treasure for you to enjoy.
