Matt was always ready for any contingency. Today was no different. Clean clothes and a suit jacket would give him entry into any restaurant. He had flowers with him to cheer up his would-be dinner companions. And the guitar was there to amuse them if they decided to make a picnic of it.
He went to the front door and knocked. The door was opened up by a woman who gave him a beaming smile.
“Come on in Matt. They are just getting ready”
Two boisterous boys ran to welcome their surrogate grandpa.
“Let’s go to the park, Matt. Mom has readied a picnic basket for us”
They went and had a fun-filled day.
Matt had started to visit the children when they lost their father in a road accident. The same accident which cost Matt his left leg.
Now they made a good supper system for each other.
