Good Times- Colour Challenge Week 114

LIME & BLACK     Less is More Colour Challenge this week.  I love these two together, and had just started a card for my son using them when I read their post. 

There is a story to the card...Son and I met up in Bangkok for a spectacular trip over winter break.  We had spent a long and very exciting day going up river to a small island known for pottery.  Later that evening we searched out a restaurant along the river. Aquatini was one that the guide book recommended and we encountered a street fair with performers along the way.  Once there, we sat on a rooftop patio right next to the river - it was lovely!  The place was known for being near the water and serving martinis as their signature drink. Not my drink- but son likes them.  It came as just warm Vermouth in the glass...and was one of the very few places we encountered servers who did not speak English!  The charades that ensued to get the martini to a drinkable state were hilarious.  We had a lot of fun that night - and the whole trip.  This son lives in Japan, so remembering these good times helps when I get lonesome.
