"Let's have a funeral themed dinner," I said, thinking of the dozen Lutheran funeral meals I've had in my life. A group of about nine of us get together for monthly theme dinners. "But NO ham salad."
"That's a great idea - who do we have to wait to die?" the A-Man said, smiling, taking a bite of his delicious venison meatballs.
"We don't have to wait," his beautiful wife said. And she was right. We don't have to wait. We don't really need a reason to get together anymore. One person makes a call, then another, then another - and next thing you know we're all gathered around a table laughing. Sharing a meal with friends who are family will always be one of my favorite things to do.
