ON THE BACK BURNER

June 14

I lived a commercial today. Last week, a rock hit my windshield. It may have been a pebble, but it sounded like a boulder. A call to my insurance company sent a nationally advertised service right to my " cabin "door. No charge, clean, professional. Truth in advertising in this case. A good way to start a day. The rest of the day was just as good. In Chicago, and I guess every where that weather can change rapidly, we would use that old line," if you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes and it will change". That happened here. 96 down to 68  and gusty. I had planned to have dinner outside tonight. Once a week I have the kids for dinner and I thought dinner outside sounded really nice and European. Especially since I had dismantled my kitchen table and we would have had no place to eat, inside. The kitchen table is now my outside table.. on saw horses. But my son rescued me by having a table in his out building workshop. It was right enough for the three of us to have an old fashioned New Orleans BBQ shrimp dinner. That's good eating.Inside or outside, New  Orleans , Louisiana or Port Townsend, Washington.

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.
