    Yes they serve both white and red with the evening meal only. Limit two glasses. Some residents take their own wine and have the server un cork it.

    No more masks or distancing done? Your Assisted Living place goes back and forth so much, I can't keep up with it. One day you have to and then next day you don't.

    They are quick to respond to changing requirements of health officials.

    I had one that stayed with me for days. A simple little song for which I couldn’t recall the name.
    A little Irish ballad I think, I finally found a title and the lyrics. It’s called “Maple On The Hill.”

    The body language of man with his arms crossed: he is smiling but his crossed arms say he doesn't want to be bothered. Lon, do you know him well? Is he a bit stand offish?

    I have seen him around from time to time but this was the first time I was engaged with him. I agree however, I observe a certain stand offish demeanor.

    Stand offish can also be spelled "standoffish".

    Check your Funk & Wagnalls.

    Brett's body language tells me he is cold. Brett did not listen to Bettyann and wear a long sleeve shirt. Notice all the others in long sleeves. It appears Carol is cross-examining him and his jaw tells me is not going to be forthcoming with the "truth." The look on Bettyann's face tells me she is disgusted with Brett not listening and then whimpering about being cold while dining. Carol is showing Brett the palm of her hand and that tells me she is dying to slap that semi-smirk off his face.

    This whole ordeal could have been avoided had Brett donned a long sleeve. Nothing wrong with Brett that a dinner jacket and sitting up straight in his chair wouldn't fix, at least for Lon's photos. :D:)

    If Brett continues to be a slouch, I suggest they bring him in a seat from an East LA lowrider. If he continues to park his buns six inches from the back of the chair, then he will have serious backaches. I fear for Bettyann's sanity should he ever suffer serious low back problems due to his horrible sitting posture.

    If I lived there I would bring my own red rose wine, a 1500 ML bottle, as a before, during, and after dinner medication. It is the only way I could deal with the high drama hahaha!

    This seems to be posted in the wrong section. Sorry Lon.
