A neighbor who lives in my community that I have known for 21 years invited me to the Marine Corp Club last night. She told me that she, and her boyfriend would be going at 5 p.m. to ensure getting a seat. As I have been to Memorials there in the past, and it is close to home. I arrived at 5 p.m.
I walked through, and they hadn’t arrived, so I sat at the bar for the first time, away from the people already there. I ordered a drink while the guy was setting up for the music.
30 minutes later, and I am thinking about leaving, a gentleman came, and sat at the next stool to me. I still had two barstools on the other side of me.
He asked me if I minded him sitting there, and I said that’s fine, I was waiting for my friends. He knew them well, and we started talking. He has the same shoulder injury that I have, and told me that he had started going to the gym with his pal, and it is the same one as I go to. I told him about my orthopedic guy, and if he wanted to get improvement in the shoulder I could help him with it.
Because of commitments, the earliest time we can meet at the gym is 17th, and then I will do all the stretches, and exercises with him.
Kathy and George showed up at 6 p.m., and I got to dance with both of them, which was nice.
