|Ron, Bob, Don and Ted - Geezers Night Out|
"Dinner and a show" has a nice ring to it. What really made tonight special was that I dined out with three gentlemen that I like a lot. The three of us just seem to hit it off. Maybe it's because we're all in the same age range. Bob is 67, I'm 69 and Don and Ted are both 70. Four old geezers out for a night on the town.
We dined at a new restaurant in downtown Rehoboth next to the theater where we were going to see "Dirty Blonde" (a retrospective of the life of Mae West) later in the evening. The restaurant was called MIXX. I have no idea what the name means but we were comfortable and well served. I got the short ribs (fork tender) with asparagus. The menu said horseradish (which I LOVE) but I couldn't detect any horseradish but I did savor a melody of other interesting flavors which I could not readily identify. For dessert I had a gingerbread, apple compote with vanilla ice cream (which I am still digesting). But for me the best part of the evening was spending time with my friends.
To me this is what retirement is all about. Quality time with friends and doing exactly what I want to do and not what I have to do to keep afloat.
Freedom, I love it. I hope I can live like this for another twenty years at least.
