ON THE BACK BURNER

March 29

I  was looking over Bob's discharge papers from the military. He weighs exactly the same today as he did 65 years ago. Only he may have shrunk a bit. That is not fair. The weight, I mean. I've shrunk less proportionately, but I have added a few lbs. So I decided  to go on a diet. I chose Dr. Atkins. After all, I love fat. I bought a carbohydrate counter and and let Bob finish my secret stash of gelato. I am not  an egg person but eggs are a must on this diet. They fill in when you are stumped about choices. My house smells a little of bacon and with Passover coming in a few days, that is a direct contradiction. Of course I had to buy a new cook book. So far, I've only read it. What do I miss the most.? Surprisingly, it is fruit . About a year ago, I lost my taste for chocolate, I'm not into ice cream(gelato doesn't count as an ice cream, to me) I like veggies, but I have never craved them. So what is left, is fruit. Maybe in the next phase of this diet, I can have some fruit. How silly can it be when your mouth waters for cantaloupe and watermelon.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
