I find it  pretty decent the way these photos are able to freeze the weekend just so I am able to relive them behind my work desk till the next one comes along. I figured I should stop writing and let the photos do the talking but I changed my mind right before I hit the publish button; how do I post without commenting on that beautiful 1961 Mercedes Benz Se Coup!

The truth is dita and I hit a very rough patch,because we both just went a week without our favorite pickings at our usual Sunday afternoon eating spot, so to make up, we stuffed our faces in hopes of getting the time to stop long enough to take it all in from the top.
