Fried Green Tomatoes


glenda
Had a lovely evening with my friend Jan and her very intelligent friend Jack from New York, now living here in Austin. We met at the greasy hamburger/fried catfish joint down on the highway. It has an external apparition of old barnwood with a dirt floor dancing and dining room. For those who prefer upscale, there is a smaller dining area with booths and unvarnished wood floor. Got there with Mr. K a few minutes early, as he is a "be there early" type and sat outside on a boulder in the warm January night, listening to the country and western band playing inside. Over dinner, catfish and fried green tomatoes, we discussed politics and religion, the war in Iraq. We were so wrong to go into Iraq.

They came over to our house afterwards and we all watched Caddyshack, amusing vintage silliness. Jan is always a balm to my soul. We met about 25 years ago in Sufi meditation classes and were friends on the periphery of each other's lives for many years. Recently, we have reaffirmed our friendship.

The rain came later in the night and is now a downpour.
