Hiking with May

This was a new adventure for me. I didn't know this trail in Springfield existed. May and I walked for three miles on the County Trail.

Birthday Lunch

This year Dal and I celebrated our birthdays with George at the Equinox in DC. It was, as usual, very special.

My favorite Towne cousin Karen and her husband Stan were in town and we met at the National Portrait Gallery. We saw several exhibits including a room of portraits of Babe Ruth. 

Then we had lunch at one of my favorite DC restaurants, Proof, right across the street from the Portrait Gallery.

                                                   Cousins Chris and Karen

                                                                Stan and Karen

                                        My delicious beet, feta, and watermelon salad

Our server treated us to a very special wine.

It was great seeing my cousin and her husband. I hope to get out to San Francisco to visit them this year or next.

A Vegetarian's Dream

When my friend Geri suggested we meet for lunch at Beefsteak, I had my doubts. Me? A vegetarian? Beefsteak? Well, it turned out to be a vegetarian's paradise! Great food and great conversation!

My stupendous Frida Kahlo salad with kale as the basic ingredient

Geri with her wonderful smile
