26 WBM june 2015 ten feet of you, she’ll know every-thing about you within five minutes. Not only that, she has never visited a single place on this planet Earth — and she is well traveled — where she hasn’t known someone and usually they’re from Hamlet, her hometown. For a small town, Hamlet must have a huge population and they’re all friends with Lillian. Anyway, my point is, our group is very friendly and we always said “Good morn-ing” as we passed other walkers and joggers. Certainly excuses could be made for those with headphones who presumably didn’t hear us but those others … well. A lot of times our walks ended at Middle of the Island where we pro-ceeded to undo whatever good the (ahem) power walk had done. They had a feature on the menu called the Little Bit, I think it was. It included a little waffle, a little egg, a little biscuit, a little bacon, a little sausage, maybe a little scoop of grits or hash browns — something like that. Anyway, since it was so little ... you get the drift. Or some-times we’d go to Causeway Cafe — Margaret liked the grits there and no wonder; they’re five parts cream and three parts butter to one part grits. Yum. Margaret always brought her own Sun Drop or she ordered iced tea in a Styrofoam cup with lots of ice. She likes ice. Anyway, we loved having breakfast and then walking it off on the way home, unless of course, we had a busy day ahead in which case we’d get our husbands to come pick us up. If we didn’t stop for breakfast, some of us — well, it was mostly Anne and me — liked to stop either in Port City Java, which at that time was housed in Roberts Grocery, or the Café del Mar for iced coffee — half caf with Splenda and skim milk, no guilt.
