Mother's day

This is a neat little Catholic religious bookstore in Orlando south of Colonial drive and just off from Bumby. I like the Friar Tuck monk drawing on the side of the building. The store is not operated by nuns nor affiliated with the Catholic church but it is very nice inside none-the-less. This is where I got Mary her gold scapular medal. Yes, it is solid gold. She likes it and wears it most of the time. The scapular medal is a good one to wear. Nothing like a little “insurance” for the life after. Yesterday was mother’s day and we went to her daughter’s house. She got to see all three of her children today and they all bore gifts which was nice. She got more jewelry, gift cards and a large white rose with the bud opened just right. Mary has it in water to help it last. We stopped at Denny’s for lunch which was crowded because of mother’s day. We both got meat loaf with mashed potatoes which wasn’t very good which surprised the both of us. We usually have really good luck with the food at Denny’s. In hindsight, we probably should have gone to The Cracker Barrel. Their meat loaf is super good. Except for the meal at Denny’s it was a really good day and a good time was had by all. Have a good day and if you don’t have a scapular medal then go to a Catholic bookstore and get one and try to wear it all times. Be kind to someone today. Lew

I haven't been to the abbey bookstore in years.
