Our friends Tom & Kay contacted us that they would be in the area later this month and asked if we could meet with them. Oh yes! We love these people, so plans were made to meet them for breakfast since I had other things on my schedule for later in the day. I was so excited to see them!
Left Brain and I headed out to Franagan's, one of our favorite little hole in the wall places to eat and sat down together facing the door to watch for them. Every time we saw a big red truck go by on the road we were sure it was them. But when the appointed time came and went I was a bit concerned.
Tom & Kay live on the road and I knew they wouldn't have any trouble finding us where ever we may be, and they usually show up early as well. Then Left Brain saw a big red truck make a U-turn on the road near our breakfast place, so he ran outside to flag them down and show them where we were.
In the meantime I called Kay to let her know where we were sitting. Her response was to laugh. We had planned to meet on the 26th of January. I hurried outside to get Left Brain off the street before he pulled some confused truckers off the road to join us.
We informed the waitress that we were going to order and now wait for them...that they wouldn't be coming for another week or two. This set her off and she started teasing us about having breakfast with our imaginary friends.
She'd come by and ask if we wanted more coffee and when we responded she'd shut us down with "I wasn't talking to you...I was asking your friends". She was having too much fun with this.
When we actually DO meet up with Tom & Kay we'll have to revisit the scene of the crime to let her know we really DO have friends.
This photo of the ladies room will give you an idea as to the type of place we frequent.
You gotta love the place that props up the sink with a walker.
Long Live the Queen
