D is for...

...Dining. Fine dining at that (even if that seems like it incorporates an F word.)

Seafood, some scotch (single malt - a rare indulgence) and excellent company. Food is well leavened with good conversation between good people.

These friends go back more than a decade-and-a-half for me. For my partner - far longer than that. And there is an ease about the four of us - with a waiter who seemed to understand that - and was easy with us.

Good, good times.

So, dinner for four. A good use of D as a letter.


  1. It doesn't get better than that. Not too many dinners include the ease of good friendship where the time flies by. Are you still considering the move there?

  2. Agreed, Laura, doesn't get much better.

    Still planning the move, this trip was a large part of that.

  3. I love dinners like this. Fine dining indeed.


  4. No, Kevin, it doesn't get any better. I love sitting around, laughing with friends with food and good beer. Divine dining indeed. Good luck with the challenge!

  5. Nothing like good times with friends... oh, and good food :-)

  6. Jai: Agreed, dining with good friends, what can be better?

    Laura M: The Spanish have a word "sobremesa". It means the time spent talking around a table after a meal. Well, the meal that evening was a lengthy and leisurely one, with plenty of time for talk.

    2: Agreed, on both counts
