COTV September 2017 Breakfast

 

.

 

As is always the case when food is involved, we had a very successful and well-attended breakfast social at the Rainbow Oaks Restaurant, which surprisingly enough is located in the small town (population:1092) of Rainbow, just off the 15 a little south of Temecula. This restaurant has been the site of a number of other COTV meals and some of us have even been there for the Prime Rib dinner on Wednesday or Fried Chicken Tuesday. Don Weeks recommends the meat loaf, as well, if you are going on your own.

Thirty-two hungry COTV members, most of whom arrived before the 9am reservation (Surprise! Surprise!) chowed down on huge plates of food. You never go hungry – breakfast, lunch or dinner – at the Oaks. As always, some who signed up didn’t turn up and others did the reverse, so please remember that it makes it difficult for those who organize these events to tap-dance with the restaurant staff to get the right number of tables and waiters set up when they have no idea what to expect themselves.

Murray Gruber, who attended the August MLR for the first time, was a slighty later arrival and came without his wife, Eva, and Angelique, their service dog. Some of the guys came solo as their wives had other plans for the early morning (we know you really wanted some alone time, Diane and Patty!)

.

 

We are seeing more of Joe and Rosemary and the split-window 1963 and we are very happy about that. It is amazing how much time grandchildren take up of our time now that we are over the children stage. Isn’t that correct? Ask the Priebes, Crowthers, Sommars, or Weeks just for a start.

Some of us were able to share our love and hugs with Bev Weeks, who lost her mother 2 weeks ago. As a group, we seem to all be in a position to experience that kind of loss, but at least we have the support of all our COTV friends to help us through.

.

 

As we were all getting ready to depart, Jim Sommars announced the happy news that there would be one more breakfast social in 2017, with details to follow as they are available. We all said thank you to Marilyn and Carol for their hard work and planning. Carol says it works for her because she gets to eat out at places they are considering as well, so it is a win-win for everyone.
