Here's my Aunt Ollie, "the waitress" in the article below.Here's my Aunt Polly (on the right), also a waitress, and her daughter-in-law, Tawnya, on the left.A couple of nights ago, I went to see the new movie, The Waitress, with a few friends, and I couldn't help but think about my darling aunts in California who have worked for years and years as waitresses, and how much respect I have for them for their hard work and fun personalities. One is Aunt Polly and another is Aunt Ollie. About the only similarity to Keri Russell from the movie to my aunts, was their cute waitress outfits, by the way. And their charming, friendly relationships to some of their dear, regular customers.
Just talking to my sister, Tracy, tonight, she told me about this article in the news in California about my Aunt Ollie, that I just read, and thought I would share her upbeat little story on my blog. I ate lunch at The Embers in February when I was there, and enjoyed a "beef on Persian" sandwich, served up by my sweetheart of an aunt.
