|Bart, Jim and Bob - my longtime friends in the woods outside Georgetown, DE|

At Whisker's in 2004 - back when I used to do the Saturday morning breakfast
Again, the purpose of the visit was to find out what restaurant they were now meeting because a longtime mutual friend is visiting them tomorrow. I haven't seen this friend for over twenty-five years and I would like to see him again. I knew this guy (Tommy M.) even BEFORE I met Bill and I met Bill forty-seven years ago! Tommy was the manager of the gay bar where Bill and I met, the Westbury Bar at 15th and Spruce Streets in Philadelphia.

I asked Bob what the name of the restaurant was. He said "I don't know but it's a diner on 24." Translated that means "it is a restaurant (there are no diners down here) on Route 24." I asked him could he provide some more information. He said "It's near the new Catholic Church." Uh huh, BIG HELP, I have no idea where there is ANY Catholic church on 24. I told him "I'll need a little more information than that Bob. I have trouble finding a named restaurant let alone a 'diner on 24'." My friend Bob couldn't provide any more information so I decided to take a trip down the trash strewn roads to his place in the woods outside of Georgetown. I would put him (and Jim) in my car and we would take a ride to this "diner on 24."

The good news today was that I ordered my new iPad. I also made arrangements to have a colonoscopy. I don't know if those two items are related but after this morning's experience (and a bad lunch at a formerly favorite place - the Georgetown Airport Grill), I needed to feel like I accomplished something today.
