Last weekend, I attended an Open Carry lunch with my best friend, his new wife, and seven other folks, a couple of whom I’d met at previous meetups. It was an interesting day.

First, my best friend. From all indications, he and his wife still like each other. Quite a bit. She took a little longer in the bathroom after our arrival than expected, and I caught him looking at her empty chair longingly. Kinda like a lost puppy. They probably even have sex. At their age. Scandalous!

On the way to the event, I had to pass several landmarks that triggered memories. First was the exit that I would take when going to visit the woman known here on the blog as Ladyfriend from late 2012. Then there was the restaurant where B and I took her father and little sister for his birthday almost two years ago. Then there was the fairgrounds where B and I went to see Toby Keith, also in 2014. My feelings were mixed, but mostly it was positive – remembering good times.  I have to admit that there was a little pang of sadness that those times are over.

It was an enjoyable time. My hearing aids aren’t a perfect solution, and I still miss pieces of what is being said. But even with a moderate amount of background noise, I was able to follow conversations at the far end of the table that would have been impossible before. Food was good – pizza, pasta and salad buffet. I had to go to work afterwards, but the bills must be paid.

    However bad you think it is…it’s worse. She’s got me eating vegetables and going to the doctor and everything. It’s sad to see how far a man like myself has let himself go. For Spring Break she had the week off, and since I was working she went to PA and spent the week with her mother. It’s ridiculous how much I missed her while she was gone.

    Yes, I am pathetic.

    (Edit: especially since you’re the one that told me to go so you wouldn’t have to tackle the “honey do list”!!! M)
