Yesterday we met friends for lunch at a little restaurant just east of here, Diamond R Cafe. It is one of the few places around here where we like to eat. They have great fried fish and amazing hamburgers. Everything we’ve ever had there has been perfect. The folks who wait the tables are mostly high school kids. It’s a very rural area so the kids still have good manners and pay attention to the customers.
We got there about 11:30, got our food promptly. By the time we finished eating, there were a few empty tables so we didn’t bother to rush off. We sat there and kept talking and visiting with our friends. First thing we knew, it was after 3 p.m. and we were still sitting here talking and laughing. One of us commented that we’d been there three hours.
It was a fun afternoon. We don’t have a lot of friends here that we get together with – probably only three couples we really enjoy spending time with. We just aren’t real social – we used to be a bit more than we are now but, as we’ve gotten older, we seem to be happier staying at home, doing what we want to do without dealing with others. But, when it’s people we really enjoy, it’s fun to get together sometimes and we did have a lot of fun yesterday.
