Oh What A Night!

Just Yesterday, I was glancing at a travel magazine and I saw a article on a Bed and Breakfast....It brought back a memory that Sam and I still laugh at today....

Several years ago Shanda and Tom gave us a gift certificate to stay at a nice Bed and Breakfast.  We had never stayed at one before, so we really did not know what to expect.  We were excited about getting to experience something that we had never taken the time to do before.  We made our way to the location and found that it was a good distance from town.  It was kinda out in the country.  Sam and I are both busy people...not exactly the kind that really knows how to sit and rest.  But, we were going to give it a try!   After we were checked in, we made our way to the little house we would be camping at for the night.  As we opened the door, the first thing to catch our attention was the bed....Oh yes, that bed!  It was a regular size bed....We have been sleeping in a king size bed for many, many years now.  Sam and I looked at each other as to say, who is going to take the first shift of sleeping.  It was obvious that we both were not going to fit in that bed very comfortably. 

Both of us got so excited because in order to eat dinner we were going to have to leave and go into town.  It was dark when we finished dinner so  here we go back to PLACE.  We get our showers and are ready to watch some TV in bed.....Well, the tv won't work!!!!!!!!
Come to find out, in order to watch the tv you had to plug it in and unplug it when you were ready to turn it off.  Oh well, we made it work.  No matter how hard we tried it felt like we would never go off to sleep, but when we finally did........THE ELECTRICITY WENT OUT....Oh yes it did.  No fan, No noise, just silence with the exception of the two of us laughing.........  Finally we fell off to sleep again. 

The next morning we wake up at our normal time of 6:00.  No noise to be heard.  Sam decides he is going to make his way to the kitchen to get some coffee.  Now this is Excitment!!  Coffee...
It's still dark outside and he comes in with these two cups of coffee.
We both are so ready to enjoy that early cup....He says "my coffee taste like water".   That is exactly what it was...Hot water.  Evidently, there was NO coffee in the basket when he pressed the power button.

It ended up being a fun experience and the breakfast at 10:30 was very good.  What we were able to take away from this adventure was a lot of laughter and a memory that we will be talking about for years to come.
Will there be another Bed and Breakfast for us?   What do you think?
