In which I take a breather for the weekend

So after several weeks of manic activity – hiking, traveling to Cape Cod, Long Island, and upstate New York – I decided to take a breather this weekend. Friday I went out with a connection in Lee, MA and had a great time. We went out to dinner at the Bombay Grill, during which I tried the Hot Lemon Pickle soup. Who can resist a soup with that name?

    Anyway she is on the mend now and it’s not mange, I posted about it in another story.
