The following was related out loud from the Sunday New York Times. And I may have messed with the words a bit. But it included loud laughter, so I feel it should be shared.

“If you could tell the president to read one book, what would it be?” “That would depend on who was reading it to him.”

Closer to home. 

That’s the Sports Section dear.” “I would not be interested. “

Yesterday was my visiting day. First up were two very old friends. And I don’t mean age old, I mean having known them for a very long time. We’ll, however you want to interpret the words, essentially since kindergarten. 

It had been several years since the three of us were together. We went to a diner for breakfast and stayed until almost lunch. Ah, the memories. I will be more diligent about reconvening on those occasions when I get to the area. 

From breakfast there was a brief stop at home and then off to lunch with my sister and “cuzzints”. At a brewery. With good beer and sandwiches and conversation. 

All in all a very good day, topped off by a sweet potato-ginger dish and shrimp for dinner. 

As short vacations go, this has been very satisfying. Three books read and  time with family and friends. 

It is raining now, getting me ready for the return to Seattle, and thwarting my plan to walk to a bookstore. I am not afraid of walking in the rain, but I don’t want to deal with wet shoes on the plane. [I managed to pack my boots into the suitcase.]

I saw this in a work journal, and here it is, almost in my parents back yard. Too bad you can’t see the fish, as they are swimming below the tree line.
