    Here it is 9 AM on a Thursday morning and I am the only one here having breakfast. Three years ago it would have been full. I guess many residents choose to pay the additional $ 5.00 to have breakfast delivered to their apartment. Empty Dining Room.jpg

    Do you have to pay extra for massages...or is that part of the Assisted Living package?

    I pay for massage. $ 60.00 for full hour which is reasonable compared to massage away from AL.
    Hair cuts, manicures are self pay too.

    9 AM is morning cocktail hour! 9 AM is brunch in most places. I bet it is packed shortly after it opens. My second breakfast is finished by 6 AM. I might join you for coffee and cherry or chocolate pie at 9 Am, but breakfast is already moving through my system at that late hour.

    Eccentric but not weird. Us early risers do get a bad rap from the late sleeping slackers.

    So, Lon, have your heard from anyone, like your next door neighbors, why it is empty? Does seem odd.

    Lon doesn’t know about the crap table behind the kitchen.

    You can only be eccentric if you got money.

    "Crap table" or "craps table?" 'cause when it comes to kitchens, there's a big difference.

    That is only if you don't want to put in the time to earn the title. You can buy it but it doesn't have the same impact as the earned eccentric.

    @Lon Tanner I am also curious why the dining room was empty if it is normally busy at 9 AM.

    If the residents finally found out that their breakfast was being shipped in from China, then it would indeed be crap table and the reason for the masses to partake of the meal somewhere else.
