Last monday our son arrived from Colorado. His first visit in years. Health and other issues kept him from Port Angeles. He could not have rented a car at the airport and driven here because of the Hood Canal snafu. So he had to take a flight from Seattle to our-airport here. when I saw him getting off the little tiny plane I was amazed. He was thirty years younger looking than he was the last time I had seen him. He weighs no more than when he was in college, playing tennis every day. I don't think I am being unrealistic when I say, he is positively handsome. He is still suffering pain from an accident he had playing softball when he broke his clavicle and separated his shoulder.
His first night dinner had to be at a thai restaurant and it was a delicious meal. Next night we invited his neighbors and friends for dinner here at my place and we had again the Leg of Lamb I told you about before. Gilbert is diabetic and for dessert we had fresh pineapple mixed with strawberry sherbet with a little chocolate sauce dribbled over. And then last night the same neighbors had us over for a magnificent Taco dinner. This morning we are having breakfast at Gilbert's favorite place for such a meal. The Corner House Restaurant. I doubt he can eat half of what he usually orders.
I am hoping we will see some of the cross dressers who are having their yearly convention, beginning tomorrow. They are such an interesting group. And their choice of coming here every year is astounding. This is such a 'down home' community. There is also a Holland American Cruise ship in port. It is so large, it towers over the hole harbor area. It will bring back so many memories from my cruise around the world two years ago. ( I wish I had known about Suze Orman before I took that cruise for if I had asked her 'can I afford it' she would have said DENIED ) But I have memories that I love bringing up when I have a sleepless hour at night.
