My Mom, grandparents, and I went over to the Barrie Legion for lunch today.  Put on by the Ladies Auxiliary, today's lunch was roast beef on a bun with french fries, with carrot cake for dessert.  All for only $6, with proceeds going to support the Barrie Legion.  It turns out today was the last Legion lunch for the summer, and they will resume the Wednesday lunches again in September.

My Poppa was in the Navy, so he and Grandma spend a lot of time at the Legion.  I don't go very often, but have been to Wednesday lunch several times in the past.  The Legion is also a place where our family will have get togethers (birthday parties, showers, funeral receptions, etc.).  It is nice to go and see some familiar faces.  I also really like older people.  We had lunch with a couple who are friends with my grandparents, and it is neat to see people (my grandparents included) who have been married for 40+ years and watch them banter back and forth, and tell bad puns.  It is pretty cute, actually.  Everyone was concerned that I put too much horseradish on my sandwich and I would surely have smoke coming out my ears while eating it.  I didn't, but the comments kept me smiling while I ate.  :)
