Erin Barb Joanne at Pietro’s – Fri. Aug. 5, 2016

Today Clark, Erin, and I drove to Lodi to have lunch with my friend Joanne Donovan. (Lodi is about a 40 minute drive south on highway 99.) Joanne and I shared an apartment for 6 months in 1960-61 when we were both teaching, and we have kept in touch ever since. I was so pleased last night when Erin asked what time we would be leaving, and pleased again this morning when she was up before I was and deciding what to wear. Erin is very fond of Joanne.

We ate at Pietro’s a long time Italian restaurant which I think we were at last Fall. Erin participated actively in the conversation and had less trouble with word recall than she usually does. She had lasagne and ate more than the 1 or 2 bites which she has been eating lately. We all brought home doggy boxes to have for dinner. I also brought home 5 tomatoes from Joanne’s garden. Had one as soon as I walked in the front door. Delicious!

    It’s so good to connect with a longtime friend. Nice that Erin was excited to see her.
    Tomatoes love the warm California climate. Sungold and other small tomatoes are the best in the Northwest. Leafy vegetables do better than tomatoes here.
    I am sure you enjoyed your Italian leftovers.
