Dinner out – with unexpected company

Yesterday (Monday) was David’s birthday.  After presents and a festive breakfast of oatmeal (special oatmeal with raisins and cinnamon and nutmeg) he had to go to work….. silly man, not to plan his birthday for a weekend!

He came home early, as we planned to go our for dinner.  He was all ready to dive into the toast and peanut butter to stave off the pangs until we left, but I tempted him with birthday cake instead…. well, OK….  two small pieces of cake with no candles as neither of us need extra cake in the house and I can’t find my candles.

After a beer and fries at the Qurm Beach Hotel, we thought that we’d stop at the “Fish Market” for dinner.  The lone inhabitant of the restaurant server and he showed us the fish.  It looked good, but was more than we really wanted.

David chose Kargeen for dinner.  It is a lovely open-air traditional Arabian restaurant.…..and THAT’s where it happened!

We’d just received our food when this brazen hussy came and sat down right beside David. Small and dainty, blue-green eyes, she divided her time between making eyes at David and at the food.  We both tried to ignore her, but she was insensitive to any hints we threw out…when it was evident that we weren’t going to share our dinner, she settled down on the seat behind me, purring.

She stayed with us for the whole meal, rubbing his shoulder and trying to make him pay her attention….and then doing the same to me.  She had the funniest meow – more like a  duck.  But she wasn’t the least bit worried about us – she wanted petting and food…. and guess who gave her a snack when we were finished?????

We took the last bit of dinner home with us – look at the huge bag they put it in.

Of coarse, Snoopy and Jenny were most interested in the “cat” smell on our clothes when we arrived home – but they forgave us.
