Back to Hardy

Mom decided to take Dad (and us) back up to Hardy to see if the leaves were any more colorful (sadly they were more brown now) but Mom was super duper happy because the Pig "N' Whistle Pub was open. Mom went in and asked if we could get some goodies to go - and they said YES - so she placed our order and we had a quick walk down the main street while we waited for it. Can you believe what we found - A PUBLIC PHONE - when was the last time you saw a public phone - one that actually worked! This pretty little corner where the phone and gazebo are is a small memorial garden right there on the main street - about 4 stores down from the pub.

But back to the good stuff - we headed back to the pub and picked up our goodies. Dad got Bangers and Mash and Mom got Fish and Chips with real malt vinegar - the lovely people packed it up for us so we could go down to Hardy Cowspotdog Park and have a picnic.  We would show you pics of it but we all tucked in so fast Mom forgot to take pictures. Mom ordered an extra 'banger' for ME and I got to share some of Mom's fish too! After much tempting - Dweeb even had a little nibble of fish too! Mom also noticed that they had a whole bunch of English Chocolates for sale at the pub too and she bought a bag full of them! After our picnic lunch we went for a nice walk through MY Hardy Cowspotdog Park. It was a totally pawsome morning!
