Jerry and Cheryl would be heading north to Lancaster County soon. We wanted an outing with what I call the Lake In Wood South edition before their leaving. Gail and Mike would make the plans. Restaurant Capriz was chosen at Broadway at the Beach. Capriz features a casual family style Italian feast of unlimited offerings of pasta served tableside. Your meal also includes endless visits to their gourmet salad bar of over 20 items including pasta salads, imported cheese, cured meats & Italian side dishes. The aforementioned couples were joined by Rod and Jackie as well as Chester and Virginia. Robin and I rounded out the deca-group. It seems as if all we’ve done this past week is go out with the gang to taunt the palate. I’m sure it will take its toll on the scale by week’s end. It is well known that the senior tour here knows all too well the buffets and all-you-can-eat haunts for paltry sums, provided that you feast prior to four bells in the afternoon. That thought strikes fear in my heart. Not only is 4 p.m. far too early to dine but for years I have viewed ‘old people’ coming in to restaurants to dine early. And now, we have become those ‘old people’. Fight as I may, both mentally and physically, I can’t slow the chronological movement of days. Fortunately, this was an evening venture and the company risque enough that we were all young at heart.
