Long-Time Friends and Good Food . . .

Jan and I headed south for West Palm Beach about 160 miles away. We were coming down to meet up with friends Charlee and Bill, who we haven’t seen since we were through this area in 2009.

As I mentioned yesterday Charlee and Jan worked together at M.D. Anderson Cancer Hospital in the early 80’s and have kept in touch ever since.

We showed up at Charlee’s door about 2:30 and it seemed like we picked up right where we left off 9 years ago, and Jan and Charlee got right back into relating stories of their past escapades.

Later we all headed over to a local favorite, PA BBQ, Meeting us there was Charlee’s daughter Monica, who we also haven’t seen in a long time.

Jan was also happy to see that in addition to BBQ,  they also had Jan’s favorite, whole fried catfish.

Inside of her two sides, she got a really good salad.

I started off with a cup of their Brunswick Stew,

before going with their strong suit, Ribs with Collared Greens and Baked Beans.


All very good, and Jan said that the Catfish was the best she’d ever had.

Later, back at the house, Jan and Charlee talked recipes for a while before they lead us over to their condo about 15 minutes away where we’re staying for the night,

Really nice.

Tomorrow we’ll get together again before heading back to Mims tomorrow afternoon.
