He did finish the deck today and is supposed to come back tomorrow to put in the nails and help me hang the epiphyllums. These flowers are the current garden items I would most hate to give up.
Tonight I ate at Tasso's in Gilroy with Lani, Ed and Cecilia. People I love, old friends who go way back. We had a glorious time laughing and talking. Cecilia's voice is very soft, and even though the restaurant wasn't noisy, I had to really focus not to miss what she was saying. I enjoyed this dinner so much it made me realize how foolish I am not to promote more get-togethers of friends from the past who still live around here. I tend to rely on others to arrange things, which I always enjoy. But I don't take initiative, unless we are about to go to Michigan. A crisp beautiful fingernail moon was over my left fender most of the way home.
Then I turned toward it and was almost there on Highway 85.
Last night I edited the Wikipedia article on Barbara Tuchman. I changed the word "conspired" to the more correct "aspired." I'll have to check and see if it is still there; also where the period goes, inside or outside the parentheses . . . It stunned me how much fun this was to do; Scott doesn't really believe that community editing will work. And I guess it does take a big community.
