Son John $ kept me company while husband John was away playing with trains. We had lunch at a Mexican restaurant near Asheville, checked out books at the library, and stopped at my favorite waterfall.
My son made a long-held dream come true. I hoped he would take me on a hike to see a waterfall after I moved to the mountains of Western North Carolina. We went to the DuPont forest, walked to Hooker Falls (named for a man who ran a mill below the falls), and ate sushi in Brevard. John $ was on the phone with a fellow he grew up with when neighbor Amy dropped in for a chat. Perfect timing! Phone calls from favorite nieces bracketed the weekend. I may not frolic any more, but I can still enjoy playing.
