One of these days, 18 no more and singing

- I missed it. And I had a plan on Monday afternoon to stop by Mr C's and get a take-out for dinner later at home, but there was a client to see that took me away from the area. One of these days I will try the meatloaf. (Photo taken Tuesday at 6:55am on the way into the office before they changed the sign.)

- My sister attended a reunion party of sorts over the weekend of some of her high school friends and sent a picture by email. I was startled to see that they are no longer 18! :)

- The same sister reported that later that day, after the sister shift change at the hospital, she and dad sang songs to keep him awake so he could greet yet another sister on her way up to see him.

I'm thinking Mr. C's meatloaf is like death and taxes - you'll never have to worry, Lynn, it will always be there ;)

Where does the time go? And couldn't it pass softly and sweetly and leave no trace?

Blue Bunny, you look AMAZING for your age!

Lynn said...

Blue Bunny -

I hope your Jannie feels better soon. And you don't look a day over 102. :)

Talon -

I think you are right! I haven't been that motivated to actually get it because the meatloaf I make is so good. :)

Where DOES the time go? Every time my sis refers to the gal the party was in honor of, I imagine an 18 year old with long brown hair and bangs. Astounding to see someone that many years later.

I went to a concert a couple of years
ago and was shocked to see how old everyone looked. Then I realised they were my age.

Lynn said...

Joe -

Exactly. And I am actually a little older than these gals. :)

You are a sweet family to take turns like that! I wish we had a restaurant nearby like that...although I'd always miss the meatloaf, because I'm a vegetarian :)

Meredith said...

That's so sweet, that he's staying awake for the sister shift changes.

I had that same moment of realization upon seeing some friends gathered on Facebook -- and I preferred my memories of them at age 18, frankly. ;)

I bet YOU look 18!!

Lynn said...

Riot Kitty -

Yes - Mr C's seems to be all about the meat. I eat vegetarian part-time - I used to be full-time, but went over to the dark side. :)

Meredith -

And I had the same thing at my high school reunion. If there hadn't been name tags, I'd have been lost for the most part. I look pretty different, too, from high school. Mainly - I quit straightening my hair and set it free. :)

G-man -

I cannot tell a lie. I don't look 18. :)

G said...

You should do a food review for Mr. C's someday. That meatloaf sounds really good.

I can't believe you haven't tried the meatloaf yet- Wish I had an oven to make some in.
I always have a good time at class reunions, the people are the same, but get fatter n less hair usually. I get along with them much better now, too.
Singing is a great way to wake up too, after a sip of water. Great that he had the energy for it!

G -

I want to do a review of it. Mr C's is in a high volume traffic spot - so it is difficult to get in and out of during the day. (Although there seem to be folks that are dedicated attendees during the day.) It's mainly a night spot and 20 miles from my house. So I aim to get a takeout one Monday evening when I'm leaving work. It's funny that the meatloaf is the only food that inspires any whimsy on their sign. Tuesday special is just Homemade Spaghetti, etc.

Snaggle -

We have crazy little family songs and that's what my sis sang with him to keep him awake. I like to sing, but wish I was better at it. :)
