THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR....
Did a few things around the house and got ready to pick up some friends. Today, 11 of us were going out to the Carlton for lunch.
beans when I opened the door.
He had just been to the groomers and sported a fresh haircut.
Then, I picked up Sally (drove right by the road that led to Brenda's) and went out to Clarkson to pick up Donna. Tra laaaa.... continued to drive out to the restaurant.
We all arrived around 12:30. As we got seated, in walked Brenda. BRENDA!!!!!! I forgot to pick her up!!!!! Fortunately Al saw us driving out of town and told her she had better drive herself. How EMBARASSING!!!!! This was one gigantic goof! So sorry!
Before Tina arrived, in walked Roger (her husband) and a good friend. They had tried another restaurant for lunch and it was not open... so, the Carlton it was.
The chatter was non-stop.
Because of the way we were seated, people got to converse with others they had never met.
Everything from a BLT wrap...
What a group. Women who are active, tuned in, community minded and inspirational...lots of artists and retired teachers. We just might have to do this again.
And we all love good food......
One of the women who joined us (Kim J.) works in a culinary program at Monroe Community College. The Chef she works with there, is a good friend of Steve's...so she wanted to deliver a couple of messages. Like "I've forgotten more than you ever knew." Nice stuff....like that.
As you can see Steve was really bothered.
Almost time for chores...will add more later.
Not much to addddddd....
In the house by 5:45 with no desire for dinner. Gary and Al are going to watch a basketball game at the college at 7.
Night all. I just may have to practice some drumming tonight.
