VirginiaThe Phone is Starting to Ring!

The phone is starting to ring again

The phone is starting to ring again

The phone is starting to ring again. For a few months, I felt like the Matag repair man. I couldn’t figure out why my phone wasn’t ringing. Were there no sellers or buyers out there that needed my help? I just couldn’t figure it out. Then, last month, my phone started to ring again. Sellers were talking about wanting to listen to me about price. Buyers were thinking the bottom was here, or at least near, and they wanted in. I am “back in the saddle again.” Yea!! Spring has indeed Sprung!!


Yogaettes, The new name of our group of friends.

The new thing to do in Wayzata is Yoga. Actually many Wayzatians having been practicing yoga for years. That is why most people who live in this town are very calm and “on an even keel.” The police drive around just for something to do. The children are perfect. The mother’s are beautiful, and the men are tan and rich. This truely is the best town to live in, in Minnesota. I want to fit in so I am going to give Yoga the good old college try. Besides, I was at a party a few nights ago and all my friends said they were going to Yoga classes. They all originally met in a pool, so the name of our group is “The Swimmettes.” Now they will probably change the name of our group to Yogaettes. Click once to zoom in.

Spasso Restaurant in Minnetonka, Minnesota

Spasso is at 17523 Minnetonka Blvd. Minnetonka, phone number; 952-224-9555.

Open for lunch and dinner.

You have to have a meal here! My husband and I wanted to go some where nice for our anniversary. We decided to check out the new Italian restaurant in town.

We called and they said they do not take reservations for small groups. So we went at 6:00 p.m. and we got a table right away. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. As the waitperson pointed out, the menu has a lot of choices, from New York Strip to Mac and Cheese. So, it’s great for the whole family! My husband ordered the Walleye and said it was good. I had the Salmon and it was very tasty. We split a pear bread pudding and it hit the spot.

The service was prompt and polite. We decided Spasso was similar to the restaurants in the downtown warehouse district with it’s tall exposed ceiling, stamped concrete floors, (and a little bit noisy.) When we first arrived, at about 6:00 p.m., the bar was empty, and at 6:30 p.m. it was full of people waiting for their table.

We haven’t gone out alone for a long time, just the two of us. So, wouldn’t you know, as soon as we walked in the door we saw our neighbors/best friends. My husband and I sat next to the kitchen and our friends happened to be at another part of the restaurant. I asked them to comment on their food.

One person had the Florentine Panini which they said was very good and could be improved with a side sauce; one adult had the Chop Chop salad and the Mediterranean Fettuccini, which was good but the lemon flavor overpowered the other flavors; another friend had the bacon and white cheddar burger which was perfect; and other had the Ceasar salad which was extremely good; the sausage pizza was excellent and the mac and cheese was as good as home cooked.

We ran into another old Friend of mine and we had a few laughs. So, to make a long story a little shorter, I would say, Spasso is absolutely the place to go, to see and be seen, in the Lake Minnetonka area! You will love it.
