This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is DINNERTIME:
Share a meal with us.
Here are three memorable meals (Sorry, the shutter on self’s camera doesn’t open all the way, hence the dark bars across all the pictures she takes now).
The first is the reunion of Emily and self, at Chez Mamie on 22 Hanway Street in London. We had been longing for a dinner at our favorite place for almost a year. Self went back to the States, Emily stayed behind to help her daughter, who was filming a big studio picture. (Self’s lips are sealed). She couldn’t believe it when, a few months ago, she got an e-mail from Emily asking if she had any plans of returning to London. She thought Emily had gone home months ago, since she knows the movie wrapped. But, what joy when self sat at a back table of Chéz Mamie, and heard the young woman say: “Your friend’s in the back.” Self went forward to Emily and we hugged, such was our joy at seeing each other again, in the same place where we had met last year.
Next, a picture self took at La Traviata in the Mission, where she and a member of her Squaw Valley Workshop 6 (We were so tight, people! Many of us are still e-mailng each other, almost two years later) met for dinner last December (Her camera wasn’t yet on the blink, hence the picture was normal)
Finally, from a visit to Mendocino by Joel Tan and his partner Bunny. We ate at The Mendocino Café on Lansing Street. Food was divine:
