We've seen a lot of a good friend lately. Last weekend, Norman was at the local breakfast place. He goes there often enough that everyone knows his name, sees him coming, and starts his breakfast! This evening, Mark and I were headed to another of Norman's haunts, Sonny's BBQ. On our way, Mark suggested we give Norm a call, to see if he was there. I called, and he made it to the restaurant in record time! The economy must be picking up, because we've never seen this place so crowded. I placed a request for a table and was told that it would be a 45 minute wait! Instead, we chose to eat at the bar, with freezing a/c blowing down on our heads. Thanks, Norm, for trading places with me. You are a real gentleman. Dinner was good, the company, even better.
