Day 310, The pressure is on..

Is it really? Or am I crazy? Maybe if I have to ask, it is too late for a clinical assessment.  Tonight a childhood friend stopped by for a visit. We went to high school and Boy Scouts together back in the dark ages (really the 1970’s).  He currently lives near Charleston, SC with his wife and three children. I don’t think we have seen each other in person in 10 or 12 years.  I forgot how tall he was.. Funny how your memory forgets things.  Maybe there is a scientific study in this. Food for thought.

We had a nice dinner of crab cakes, shrimp, corn on the cob, watermelon and blueberry fruit salad and fresh mozzarella. The meal was ment to be a play on summer time meals. Light, tasty and flavor full. I think I hit the mark on this. The crab meat came from COSTCO again this week. Last week the crabmeat from COSTCO was pasteurized re-packs. Meaning that the company that sold the crabmeat emptied pasteurized foreign crabmeat into the containers to fulfill the supply contract. This week the crabmeat was local crabs, picked and packed in North Carolina. How do I know this? I spent 20 + years in the seafood business. The fresh crabmeat alway tastes better.

We had dinner with DS1. He was going to duck dinner until I told him the menu. We talked a lot about out current lives and a few stories out of our past came to light. I was no saint when I was a kid. When my friend went to tell a story that was particularly reveling, I changed the subject. Not that I was embarrassed by my behavior as an adolescent, I just did not want to give  DS1 ant ideas.

It was a fun night. I can’t believe how late the time has gotten. Tonight’s picture is from June 2008 on my birthday. Enjoy!
