Lunch with Granny

Standard

Hey Guys!

Today I did my taxes. About half way through I decided to take a break and go to the local Capt. D’s for some fish lunch. I made my order of a grilled salmon dinner, figuring this would have the least amount of gastric devastation for my finicky tummy.

I got my meal to go since I don’t particularly like to eat in public alone. As I stood waiting for my buzzer to go off, I took a moment to soak up the environment around me.  I noticed that the majority of the guests were elderly folks. Nicely dressed as if they had just come from church. The ladies were all in dresses, sweetly quaffed hair, and just a bit of makeup. The gents in their suits and ties, hair finely styled as well, hurrying around to get drinks and condiments for their ladies and themselves.

Just then, a memory came to mind of going to a similar place with my granny and my parents as a child. Granny loved her catfish dinner on Sunday. I don’t recall actually going to church with Granny, but I do remember going to lunch. I couldn’t help but smile at the memory from so long ago.

Granny used to like the raw onion with her fish. I remember I used to wrinkle my nose when she would offer me one. She would smile and say that I didn’t know what I was missing. I still don’t like raw onion like that, but Granny was right.

Then I took another look around and realized that there were no grandchildren with these folks. Just tables and tables of elderly folks chatting among themselves. That made me feel a bit sad. The memories I have with my granny mean so much and I wondered if these people ever got to spend time with their grand kids. I hoped so.

I wish I could have another lunch with Granny.

Ladies and Gentlemen, presenting… ME!

Hi Guys! this is my first ever post on WordPress.

I hope this will be my new home for all my blogging, writing, and articles I love to write. I was writing on Yahoo Contributor but as some of you may know, they chose to close that portion of their site. Sad as I was about this at least they gave us all the rights to our writings when they did so we could publish (and polish) on other sites. I have been looking and looking and decided to come here!

I hope you all enjoy the things I put here and as always, I like to hear what you have to say, good or bad, so please please leave (respectful) comments below and let me know how I am doing.

One more thing I would like to share about me that I didn’t put in my about me section, I also vlog. I will share some of the vlogs here. most of them are of me in my car talking to you guys. Some of them are DIY and cooking vids. All are my own intellectual property so if you share just come tell me or leave a comment on the video.

Thanks Guys!!

MWAH!
