|A good turnout at Diner DeLuxe this time. The sharp of eye will notice that Big Walt and Duggy Wuggy are in attendance, nice to see you gentlemens. Big Walt, fresh from an American adventure in the wilds of Montana, brought back a loverly souvenir for The KlatschMeister, which he is seen sporting in this shot. For the less sharp of eye, here's a closer look taken moments before in the Diner DeLuxe's palatial gents lavatory...
Arriving back at the table, another photo op presented itself as Mr. T was handed an impressive-looking concoction by the waitress. I think I heard gingerbread but I'm not sure. If it was I guess that made Bob a gingerbread man -- for the few minutes it took him to hoover it down, at least.
Then, a little while later, yet another photo op. Strains of Happy Birthday could be heard pealing through Diner DeLuxe and of course, everybody looked to see who was being embarrassed in public this time. Lo and behold (faith a begorra) it turned out to be one of the Diner DeLuxe staffers. Now, the KlatschMeister is not as sharp of wit or fleet of foot as he thinks he once was and by the time he got over to where the action was, the action had already been. However, the birthday lad and one of his well-wishers stuck around for a photo, so thnax to them for that and, from all of us at the Kaffee Klatsch: Happy Birthday, Man!
