Why There are Peanuts Behind the Dryer

Dear John,

Today the president awarded Bob Dylan the Medal of Freedom. That's the best new out of Washington in weeks. Good job!

Howard and Janice came by tonight and we had a wonderful visit. There's nothing quite like spending time with people you've been friends with for a long time. Harold picked up all of your umpire things - pants, shirts, pads, gear, bag, and shoes. He found a good home for them with people that need them. It's all so expensive - I remember that you umpired for a full year to make enough money to pay for the gear. I know it makes you happy to give them to somebody that needs them. He did a sectional in the heat yesterday - did three games, two at the plate. Yikes.

The only other thing of note today is that I fell up Kathy's stairs at work. I was carrying two boxes of styrofoam peanuts; she'll probably be finding peanuts behind the washer and dryer for years. I just have some bruises. I never did get this walking thing down very well, did I? I have no idea what happened. At least I fell up and not down!

The dog and I are off to bed. We have a cold front coming through tonight so it should be good sleeping weather. But it would be so much better sleeping with you.

Love you, miss you,
