Waiting for the Waitress


The photo theme of Waiting is really appropriate in my case; I have kept everyone waiting for another post for over a week. This is unusual for me: I generally manage to fit some blogging in somewhere even when travelling. The thing is, though, that I have committed to reformatting eight of my novels for prints/reprints, and this added to normal chores does not leave a lot of time. Today I chose give precedence to taking grandkids to the beach after school — on the only weekday without scheduled swimming they still want an amusement involving water!  Only R actually swam, though. J and I got splashed and swooshed at by some enormous waves at the tidal pool.

Here I have a group waiting for a train — to leave again! — from a recent adventure.

Back to the cat feeding scheme for another picture. Here is the home of the customers, and an early diner waiting to be fed. The waitress (plus two trainees) is in close attendance. (Do not suggest to me that the proper term is ‘waitron’ or I might turn violent. This is a gender denialist fad with no justification in accuracy, sense, or benefit to feminism.)M is thriving, by the way, and is as adorably attentive as ever, particularly when waiting to be fed one of her couple-of-dozen meals a day.

Owlingly funny talepiece.

  2. How amazing – waitron… maybe you haven’t come across wait-person… When I took a chaplain to task for changing “Render to no man evil for evil” …. to “Render to no person …” he said he’d felt obliged to since he’d been holding a placard in an anti- apartheid protest, which read ” I am my brother’s keeper”, and was attacked by feminists !!!!

    Never heard the term ‘waitron’ before. I suspect that I will be hearing it again. M is a fine feline specimen.
