Snapshot Saturday...lunch with friends

A large bird watching me carefully as I board the train he was LARGE like a pigeon
the happy gang
I know I'm a little late, but... My two sisters and I joined a couple of life long friends for a lovely lunch.  We closed the place down.  As you can see there is NO ONE left in the restaurant. Finally the waiter walked by and I asked him to take a photo and he quickly complied, I think to get rid of us.  He said they would re-open for dinner in a couple of hours if we should care to stay, but they (the staff) were leaving.   From left to right and around the back of the table, Teresa O,(lived in the upper apartment when my parents had their first home) next to her my sister Alice,my sister Donna, Veronica (our next door neighbor when we were kids) and moi.  I was celebrating my sons completion of his school year, Veronica and Teresa were celebrating birthdays, Donna we are grateful was up and about, until her next health issue, and Alice our generous hostess and excellent driver.  Since then,  Donna has had another health issue, a restaurant visit would be too much for now, we are praying... Take time to be grateful.

I believe that's a red-winged black bird. They're beautiful! I want to party with you guys, if you close down the restaurants!!!

How fun to see old friends like that! I wonder what they would have said if you'd told them you were going to stay on at the restaurant.

Hello Irene,

I really LOVE the "title" happy gang, it's a nice image of what can be an understanding friendship. I can't imagine a pigeon as big as a train. Smiles !

I hope all is well with you sister Donna.

Blessings

Grace

What fun to enjoy the company so strongly that you don't want to leave.

I love it when you're with friends and you shut the place down. Looks like a great place for an impromptu reunion, dear Irene. I really like those green chairs. So funny they offered to let y'all have the run of the place while they left for their pre-dinner break, LOL.
