Early Bird Special at the Golden Corral

Who wants to eat the evening meal at 4:00 pm?  Seniors who gather for the Early Bird Special, approximately $7.00 for all you can eat! We found ourselves surrounded by other gray headed and bald headed people. I did, that is. It almost seemed strange to think of ourselves as being "one of them". Terry looks rather young to be in this gathering.  At 63,we are actually the youngest couple on our Project, and were called the new kids on the block.  Besides the 5 couples working at the Mission, other, older SOWERS from the area, who no longer work projects, were invited to join us at the Golden Corral.  We surprised ourselves by feeling comfortable sitting next to someone we had never met before, and chatting for at least half an hour before perusing the buffet tables.  Everyone was so friendly.  The main course was varied and delicious; with the meats tender and lots of greens, it was possible to choose healthily. The desserts, however, were way too sweet, and not worth the headache I had all night.  By 6:00 pm we were on our way home, as the leader felt it was "too late" to go shopping as we had plannned.  Indeed, we did suddenly feel tired from all that food.
