One of the joys of retirement is being able to have a nice, leisurely lunch with friends who are also retired. Today, I joined two friends and former colleagues at Veselka's new Bowery location (well, just west of the Bowery) for pierogis (a variety: potato and cheese, chicken, and pot roast, with applesauce and sour cream -- I don't like sour cream, so removed it for the photo) and, for dessert, a slice of chocolate fudge cake. An afternoon of good food and good conversation. Can't beat it.
