Before moving here hubby dubbed Sunday "brunch day". There are tons of places to have brunch here on post, so we are going to try them all. This Sunday we went to the Navy Club (pictured above), yes, I said Navy Club, no, I am not sure why the Navy club is on an Army post...did you call catch that - ARMY POST. This is a little pet peeve of mine, especially among soldiers that should know better. For you civilians, it doesn't bother me as much, but now you know. The army has POST and CAMPS, not BASES. Anyway back to brunch. The Navy Club actually does not have brunch, so we just had a late breakfast, which was pretty good. Boy 1 decided this is his favorite restaurant here on post and told us this is where he would like to have his birthday dinner. This is an American restaurant. Ok, so this leads me to the food here....from some of the comments you guys have left I tend to think you guys think we do not like the food here. Hubby and I are enjoying it VERY MUCH, I guess I have only been telling you all about the bad stuff. Most of it is really good. I'll try to be more positive from here on out.
After brunch we went into the city. Our quest for today was to find paint pigment. We would really like to paint our house, housing allows it here, and they don't even make you return your walls to white. The problem: finding paint pigment! Self help will even give you the paint, and mix your paint, once you have the pigment. The problem (again): have any of you ever looked for paint pigment? Much less in a different country where you don't speak the language. It is quite humorous. Where is a Home Depot when you need one? If any of you out there have some paint pigment laying around, or know where to find it, please advise me! I can't live with white walls for 2-4 years!!! Help me!! :)
