When I ran outside in the falling rain, camera in hand, hollering~~"Hey, what are you doing here?" did I startle you? You both looked at me with such shock in your eye...a true deer in the headlight moment. Then, you turned white tail on me and disappeared with a few neat leaps!
Can you please tell me how you discovered Clay and Limestone? Has a notice been posted somewhere that gave you the impression this was an open seating restaurant? It is clear to me that you managed to scoot past the maitre d'. This is a quality place and reservations are required!
I hope you found the menu unappetizing, the atmosphere too rushed and noisy and the wait staff entirely too bossy. The next time you decide to drop by...please call...I am sure it will save you a lot of trouble if you know ahead of time that the tables are all taken! This is a very popular spot...we feed an early morning crowd of chicadees, titmice and cardinals.
If you decide to drop by again, please use the paths to enter! I really liked that coneflower that you trampled all over. It was reserved for the Bloom Day post table.
Also, the hollyhocks were not your appetizer. When you nibbled on the stems you managed to pull it completely out of the ground. The manager is not happy! You don't get to eat off other people plates! This is an upscale place...decorum is the norm.
After thinking about your menu requests...Let me reassure you that there is a very fine smorgasbord just down the street. They serve all the Bur Oak Acorns two deer could ever want. I know how it is when you find a place that serves your favorite food...you want to return again and again! Let me assure you...Bur Oak Acorns are being taken off the menu immediately. I know it is your favorite food, so tomorrow, I am going to rake them all up and put them in another yard...just for you!
