Not thrilled to have my photo taken myself, the least I can do when taking everyone else’s photo is take some selfies of myself, eh?!
We had our March get-together on 31 March.
I was really happy Flo and Ted were able to come to the luncheons again!
We met at the Gathering Place. It took a bit of time to get orders placed. I had a crispy chicken cordon bleu sandwich and potato salad, both of which were excellent!
We chatted while we waited for our orders to be taken – the long-haired standing lady in the back on the right is the waitress-bar keep. She managed quite well so I made sure I gave her a good tip.
When I ordered my beer, I thought the choice of a large was like the glass with the red beer in it. I got a surprise when the huge mug showed up. I got through it, though. Man, was it heavy for this old man to hoist!
Half full or half empty? Half full for certain when I’m with my friends!
Will Doug ever put that $*%& smart phone camera away?
Time to pull out for desserts at Donna’s! Well, for most of the crew. Between the beer, a large lunch, and a kitty intervention in my rest the previous night. I bow out this time.
Andy woke me up at 10:30 pm and I’d been up since. I missed the rest of the conversations, but it seemed the best thing to do this time. I fell asleep in my chair almost as soon as I sat down! And the kitty boy? Andy was not amused when his kitty food was late. Everyone knows what the kitty wants, the kitty will have! NOW!
Our group is breaking into the mid-70s in age and each time we get together I realize just how much I value these friends and the other friends who make it sometimes. We share lots of old times together, many school memories, and lots of sorting out where this or that person is now or if they are above ground.
I never imagined this is something I would enjoy as much as I do. I feel blessed to have this group in my life!
