Engaging A Conversation While Dining

--by Mish, posted Dec 4, 2019
We made a new friend today. An elder gent sitting right next to us in a restaurant we were dining in. 

He was alone and we struck up a conversation that was so enjoyable and lasted all through our leisurely meal. He is a young 86 year old with a twinkle in his eye. He invited us to visit him at his beach house next summer.

He told us where his house was, said we should ring his bell and stop in for a drink if we find ourselves there. We shared stories and he lit up when, as we were leaving, I asked if I could give him a peace dove. 🕊

All told, shared 6 doves today during our outing. Folks really seem touched by someone giving them a symbol of peace. ❤️🕊❤️

I also thought my 86 years old new friend would be a good match for my 82 year old good friend. He actually seemed interested. I have a pretty good matchmaker record: 2 couples I introduced a long time ago wound up getting happily married. 👰🏻 💕 🤵🏻
