green little review

Poem for Thursday, That's Amore, Through the Looking Glass

After a morning of work and chores, we went just after noon to pick up Maddy from the airport, where we parked and ate lunch at Ben's Chili Bowl. We spent a couple of hours in the afternoon watching the first Pokemon movie, which was my fault since I had found the VHS tape, then at dinnertime we went to meet Linda and Hildy, my two good friends from elementary school, and their families at That's Amore, where we shared Italian food and did lots of catching up.

We haven't all been together in years, and although Linda and Ira's older son was en route to Israel, all the rest of the kids including Maddy came and all appeared to have a good time. When we got home, we ate some of Maddy's birthday cake, lit the menorah, and watched Alice Through the Looking Glass (a Chanukah present). Again, the parts of my day I spent with family were lovely. I can't even imagine what the family of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher is experiencing now.
