Yesterday was a nice reunion day for me, I got a chance to have lunch with a few retirees from my agency that I haven't seen for awhile...in some cases it's been years! The members of this group have been meeting for quarterly lunches for approximately 10(?) years and, since I retired on June 3 of this year, I was the newest member. I'm in, I'm officially retired!
Yesterday's lunch was held on the lower deck of Ben's home in Upper Marlboro....
We mingled while Jerry deep-fried whiting on the deck
My friend Joyce retired about 3 years ago, see the large smile?
There was plenty of good food!
After lunch, a few of us took a walk around the huge back yard; Shirley and Valeria led an impromptu exercise routine to the music. Shake that food down!
I found this bridge interesting; it crosses over a railroad track and goes into the woods on Ben's property. I think it's about 30-40 feet long.
That's Jerry, Shirley, Gerry, Valeria and Michelle
Michelle and I paused in the swing porch(?) with Elois.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, maybe that would be enough to say what a wonderful time we all had. It was great reuniting with people I'd lost touch with, and seeing others I'd only gotten a chance to chat with on the phone for such a long time!
Reunions, no matter what size, are wonderful things... sew forth and sew on
