I am still in Utica.
I had lunch yesterday with my father. He is 95 years old. Still in pretty good shape.
My mother passed on many years ago. My father has a friend. She is 30 years younger than him. They have lived together for several years. Her name is Frances.
Frances is a good woman. She cares for my father and cares for him. The relationship is good.
We lunched at my father’s home. Frances cooked. A rich chicken soup and a pepper and egg sandwich. On Italian bread, of course. So good!
My father and Frances both told me Utica was experiencing a hot wave yesterday. The temperature hit 20!
Last night I met my friend Gus for drinks. He had 3 voldka somethings and I 3 diet pepsis.
It was good to see him. Gus is an attorney also. When I was still pacticing law, he and I would meet every day aftrer work for a few pops.
Gus took me home for dinner. His wife Mary was cooking. A cook! A good lady!
I ate big again. A similar soup. Great salad. Delicious beans. And heavenly pork chops. Topped off with coffee and Xmas cookies.
My diet obviously went to hell yesterday. I did not even try.
I am cold. Cold all the time. I cannot wait to return to Key West and its warm 60 degree weather.
Enjoy your day!
