Before I post this item may I suggest that you visit and read this post to get an idea of what is going on.
Then there were three, but now there are only two of us left. My Best friend died earlier this year. The other friend decided that we should discontinue the Din-din Club because as there were only two of the original eight left it was pointless carrying on, and he wasn’t feeling to well himself.
I suggested that we have one last dinner together and to toast to “Absent Friends” and then call it a day. He said OK, providing I did a “Galette Complète” with a “Salad Niçoise” (his favourite meal).
Afterwards I drove him back to his lonely little flat where he can no longer cook and clean for himself, and has to rely on carers and ‘Meals-on-Wheels’. As I drove back to my house I thought there, but for the grace of God, go I.
Now I need someone to make a nice comment to cheer me up now.

Yes, I can see why it would seem more somber with only two of you. But your friends would be delighted that you carried on at least until now with such a lovely meal and toast to end the tradition! I suppose that’s one of the hardest things about aging, is seeing many friends pass on.
I do have to say, though, Keith, that you do host a beautiful dinner. I love the plates with the fern pattern and such a pretty table setting. The food looks yummy, too…and that salad is gorgeous!
I also think it’s great that you have had friends that have stood the test of time. I don’t have any from my childhood or high school years that I keep in contact with! You are fortunate!

That wonderful presentation would put the French to shame! Looks absolutely perfect and yummy. Cheers!
Actually it’s on the wall of the outside loo! Well, it gives me something to read when I’m disposing of last nights food. . . .
I know. . . .too much information. – Keith.

I think you should cultivate some younger chums. The meal looks gorgeous.

Hello there, it’s good to see you’re blogging again. You put me to shame! Despite having lots to write about I can’t find the time to spend on the old puter nowadays but drop me an email (NOT yahoo)if you’re interested and I’ll fill you in. xx
