Usually at happy hour we decide where we are going to go the next day or two, so last week we decided to all go together to The Villager’s Café in Maurice, Louisiana. It’s only a little bit up the road north towards Lafayette.
This is a small place (former house) and there was about 18 of us, so we decided to get there at 11 a.m. You know, older folks eat early lunch
Here is Jim, Tom, Betty and Ann. Note the memorabilia on the walls.
Here is the rest of the group scattered at tables and counters…too busy ordering to turn around…but I bet you can identify some of them from the back of their heads…ha-ha
The Villager’s Café is known for their po’boys and especially their Philly Cheese Sandwich that some say is better than what you get in Philadelphia.
This is their small order of fries…cut differently than most places.
Philly Cheese sandwich Jim, Ann and Betty had and marveled about.
Tom loved his shrimp po’boy
I enjoyed a grilled shrimp salad
Later at happy hour after we enjoyed all the snacks (more like a light meal), we rehearsed singing Christmas carols for when we sing at two or three nursing homes next week. It is really surprising how well we all harmonized and sang together when you realize we are just a bunch of random people staying in the same RV park. Dodo and Dan did a great job accompanying us on the keyboard and guitar. We smiled and laughed until our sides hurt.
What a great day….to spend the whole day in the company of happy, pleasant people who all get along with each other. Betty brings out the best in all of us, doesn’t she? We are so enjoying our time here at Betty’s RV Park.
Remember, you are loved.
