Family in May

I am just getting to some photos I had not looked at. From the little camera that is a real work horse.

Here is one of Owen, tucked in a bass case during the chilly Art in the Park. I think it was cozy there.

What is it with us (family) and restaurants? One time at Free State Owen took a flash photo of the waiter and the waiter went away for a very long time, acting as if he was blinded for life. What is up with that? I always get a private room

Is it because groups under tip? Maybe if we reserved under a different name- like the Brenda Gadd Family Trust group. I am pretty sure female tippers have not been generous in the past. So I kind of over do it. Just to make it a point that females don't under tip. I always think of it this way...I am grateful I have never done waitressing except for that one time at age 17 when I hired on at a Howard Johnson's and got the uniform and rubbery shoes and everything and discovered that the used plates made me throw up. Dry heaves . It was a swell costume concept, but i gave it away.. turquoise checks and all.

So here is my perfectly normal family.

Really, we reserve the private room. We are polite. And if kids put straws behind their ears and I ask them to take them down when service and order comes. They are cool with that.
