CHRISTMAS LUNCH WITH FRIENDS

 This is the couple Don married in November.   They were honeymooning at Disneyland and stopped by for lunch on their way home.
 Since my birthday party last May, Geezers has become a favorite place to eat.
 It was raining outside, but that didn't hinder our fun time together.
 They are the sweetest couple, and came bearing gifts!!
 The restaurant is delightful, and was decorated so nice for Christmas.
I had a turkey club  and chili.  It was the best chili ever, with mushrooms, black beans and olives.  I will add that to my recipe from now on.

Christmas the gift of the Christ child, the gift of salvation, and the gift of friends.

This time of year is very sad for many, and I send my love, hugs and prayers to those who are having a difficult Christmas.  May you find the Joy of the Lord to be your strength.

    1. It's a restaurant for "Old Geezers" like me and Don...HaHa. I love the name. Will have to look up their history..I know they have been there a long time.

      Wish you could have a turkey club.

      It seems many people love love ones at Christmas time. I did my Dad in 1968.

      Love you back ((((hugs)))
