Virginia Kinley column: Class of ’47

Fourteen people had lunch at K&W recently. What a great time they had! They talked about the past, present and future.
There were 10 ladies and four gentlemen attending.
One topic of conversation was children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Pictures were shown, with aahs and oohs.
One lady didn’t show her pictures because she forgot they were in her purse. This same lady had to go to the rest room after lunch, but could not find the zipper in her pants when she got there. She hastily found a friend to help her. The problem was, she looked for the zipper in back, and it was in front. Frankly, I think she is getting old and forgetful.
The same person who lost her zipper had her digital camera in her purse but had not learned how to use it. She took photos of groups of three around the table. One of the photos was her plate of food. Must have been a senior moment ó again.
Those attending the lunch were Lois Morgan Sowers, Peg Lyerly Williams and husband C.C., Ed Nesbit and friend Mary Agner, George Raymond McGarity and wife Frances, James Linder and wife Elvira, Kitty Myers Snider, Nell Clawson Lagel and Virginia Lippard Kinley.
