Easter Brunch is a big deal
in the metropolis where Fred lives.
Restaurants run their ads
Ash Wednesday through Good Friday.
Years ago brunch began at 11
for Catholics coming out of Mass.
Protestants arrived at noon or so
depending on the sermon.
Back then everyone dressed up
in Sunday suits and Easter bonnets.
Children had on brand new outfits.
But Fred says Easter Brunch this year
started at 9 and no dress code prevailed.
Church was not on everyone’s agenda.
The weather was sunny and nice.
Shorts and sandals sufficed.
