Today I had a wonderful lunch with my friend, Marie. We went to Patty's Eggnest in Arlington, which I think is one of the best places to go for breakfast or lunch with friends. The food is good, they give you enough for two meals, and the service is great. Plus they don't seem to care how long you sit there and visit, they just keep filling your coffee cup and being nice. Bear was happy because he got Marie's leftovers (I ate mine for dinner).
We missed having Mary join us, but hopefully her back will get better quickly and we can do this again soon. I miss my old neighborhood and the wonderful people I met there.
I have to say that I miss having the constant interaction with the people I lived near, worked with, and saw on a daily basis. I think it is the downside of retirement and moving. You just lose contact with the people you saw day in and day out. I guess the reason the people at Walgreen's think I'm always such a pleasant customer is I'm just happy to see them.
