They took pity on us after I mentioned in an email that my beloved SWMBO was just barely speaking to me.
(Moving is hell!)
And we leaped at the opportunity for a free meal and a day away from our troubles.
This is our hostess, the Legendary Lori from Down the Block.
And her husband, Rick, who was the Chef for the day.
After consuming baked ham, multi-colored (including purple) potatoes, veggies, bread, an awful lot of wine and a delicious lemon cake that Lori spent hours (picking out at Costco) preparing and we repaired to their front patio to watch hummingbirds, drink more (!) wine and chat.
I caught Rick, hands clasped in prayer, delivering his Easter sermon.
Actually he was overcome with laughter at one of my typically hilarious anecdotes.
It's what life is all about.
