As Thanksgiving approached, the first in 40 years which we didn’t have Dick’s folks with us (his father passed away in 2019), we were trying to discover our new traditions.
I took some time later that night to investigate through brush pen and watercolor, the familial resemblance between a father and son on “Forged in Fire.” (We are still watching this show together, me stopping the DVR every so often and asking Dick some metal properties questions. This is just one perk that comes from living with an engineer.)
I hope, during this difficult time in the pandemic that you can pause and recall some quiet moments from just last year, or the years before, and use the memory of those moments to build something new, and hopeful now.
Note: If you’re new to the blog the end of the handwritten material on these pages might puzzle you. You need to know Dick and I enjoy making chocolate chip cookies (chewy) and using them to make ice cream sandwiches with vanilla Häagen-Dazs Ice cream.
