Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and caldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,

In the caldron boil and bake;

Eye of newt and toe of frog,

Wool of bat and tongue of dog,

Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,

Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,

For a charm of powerful trouble,

Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and caldron bubble.

Cool it with a baboon’s blood,

Then the charm is firm and good.

Song of the Witches by William Shakespeare

One of the waitresses said she has seen it before and thought the T-bird  belonged to the owner of the hair salon. Really. Would I make these things up?

The manager came to our table when we got back in and apologized that our food was taking so long. The staff forgot to turn on the waffle iron. Ha! I know what they were up to; watching two granny’s run out, purses dangling, chirping like chipmunks scampering for the last fallen acorn.

No matter. The waffle was on the house.

They even brought out a plate of fresh fruit.

My eyelashes are still growing in from my cataract surgery. Wonder if . . .

. . . nah. I don’t have a red dress!
