We have been going to Pete's Diner in our neighborhood for several years. Since I retired in February, we walk every morning rain or shine. Invariably, we end up at Pete's Diner every week on the way home. That way, we don't have to think about what to make for brunch. We know everyone who works there, and they know us. We don't even need to order because we get the same thing every time. The drinks are on the table before we sit down. So today we stopped in after being away for two weeks, and were greeted in the usual way. It's such a friendly place it almost feels like we are back in Wisconsin! As we were getting ready to leave to pay the bill, we received a package with Santa Claus on it along with a warm Christmas greeting. On the way home we peeked inside the package and found our kind of wine inside. It's not so much the gift, but the idea of it all. Thanks Pete's. We'll probably keep visiting for another year!
