Nice Appreciation.

     One of our malls puts on a seniors appreciation lunch every December. Today was the day. We arrived around 10:30 AM. Most tables in the food court were full. Seniors started lining up about 11:00 to get their lunch. Lunch was started at 11:30.

     The lunch was catered by Tim Hortons so we had soup, sandwich, juice , cookies and coffee on a sort of all you can eat basis.

     And there was appropriate music. There was as seniors jug band which played Christmas tunes and popular tunes from "a while ago." A young guy played guitar and sang, seasonal tunes and other great tunes like Four Strong Winds. A very popular older country and western entertainer played and sang.

    So it was a good time and with the music you could have hung around most of the afternoon.

    Now when Mr Introvert says he enjoyed it , it had to be good. Mr Introvert would rather be visiting in a small group or out in the bush wandering around. I have been dragged kicking and screaming to this event before but today I honestly enjoyed it. The only downer was that the micro manager didn't get there in time to get her coupon for a free picture with Santa!!!

      Next year I'll make sure I take my camera!

  1. There's nothing like live music, even if you don't get your picture taken with Santa.

  5. I think it's wonderful that so many people, from so many different places can all come together to make something like this possible. In this day and age it would be so very easy not to bother, and then where would we be? I am a bit of an introvert myself. I think it comes from working mostly on my own for forty years. Glad you enjoyed it Red, it sounds great.

  6. Glad you enjoyed your outing. I am a bit of introvert too though most people who know me would never believe it! I have to put out a lot of energy to acted extroverted, lol. Sometimes it is worth and I have a lot of fun. I find the older I get I have absolutely no problem being social and verbal even amongst complete strangers. I'm glad for that because it makes outings much more enjoyable. Even so there are some days I like to be alone and recharge. Your snow picture is lovely and I hope the rest of December is very nice for you.

    1. Most introverts learn to function very well. Eleanor Roosevelt was an introvert and we all know what happened to her.

  14. Now that sounds like a great evening. Being the introvert I have to be coaxed like the circus performer being shot out of a cannon :)
