Milk Guy came in early afternoon and I was able to push an extra dozen eggs on him. Later, I received a most welcome phone call from my grandson Jake, who was home on leave and able to spend the holiday with his mother's family and his dad, Pete. Having just spent time in Washington state learning survival training, his next post will be in Oklahoma. A southern California kid, he's dreading being stationed so far from the ocean. I completely understand.
There were things I could have and should have been doing yesterday, but instead picked up a new book by Jeffrey Deaver, one of my favorite mystery writers. I was introduced to Deaver by Pete some years back and I've been hooked ever since.
All things considered, especially Esther, it was a good day.
