I find it a blessing that the three women who are my table mates are so agreeable and friendly. We all get along so well. Oddly we none of us talk a lot but the three make so many thoughtful gestures to me and im not sure if Its my age or what, but its a feeling of connectedness. We laugh at silly things and often we all agree about something. I have had table mates who are moody , and sullen and not wanting to have any conversation with each other. B ut the three of them are all s rt of outgoing and very congenial to me. It makes meals a special time for me too.

It's important to take your meal besides the people you like to talk and spend with. Sometimes you may not get , you have to adjust. Since now you got, just enjoy.

That is great. It makes food do more for you to eat in pleasant surroundings. I remember you having grumpy table mates.

yhes I had this one man who was partly deaf and no matter how i did it to get him to hear he claimed I was shouting. the otherr table mate told him no she did not shout at you. the man got to blowing his nose all the time at the table until it really got to me as heput the used napkin on his plate so the staff could share in his cold. Now it so nice to have pleasant table mates.

That makes meal time more enjoyable when you share it with nice people.

I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.

Oh, that's so great! Do you get to choose table mates or it's all arranged for you?
