|The three of us|
Two friends, Bambi and Pottsy and I meet a number of times a year at Henry's restaurant in Kenton, OH. That is about halfway from my house and theirs. Yesterday, was one of those times. We like to meet there because the place is big enough to where we don't feel crowded. We always sit in one of their big booths...the kind that at least three people can sit on each side. There is always something to celebrate like birthdays and Christmas. Yesterday was my lucky day. To my surprise, I was greeted with two gift bags as belated birthday gifts. It seems most of our meetings celebrate a belated birthday because we never meet close to any of our birthdays.
|Thanks, Henry's for being a great place for our mid-way meetings.|
|There are always specials, but we are not too adventurous and usually|
get some sort of hamburger...and I get the onion rings. Yummy!
Our server, Joanie, has been there many times and knows that we will be staying most of the afternoon. She keeps our water glasses and soda filled and allows us time to chat without being hovering. She is a great server and we appreciate her. In fact, everyone we have had there has been accommodating and friendly.
We have two small traditions we make sure to follow. One is, someone always brings a few lottery cards. There is always a lottery card tucked in the gift packages....but everyone likes a chance to win so there are always a few lottery cards for everyone. At that time there are a few moments of quiet as we scratch the cards to discover we have won a dollar...or maybe five. Until our last meeting, Bambi had never won anything, but last time she had a lucky five dollar winning card! Yesterday I was the big winner. I won $50!!! It just occurred to me that I should have offered to pay the tab for all. Hmmmm, sorry, Bambi and Pottsy....next time I will.

An example of the advice given on an Animal Card is this. The Fox says: Blend in. Avoid being the center of attention. Become protective when needed
