Rick gave our latest tastings four burps. Podda Classic.o (Tumblr will not let me post this with c l a s s i c o as one word, weird), a mixed cow and sheep cheese with a slightly nutty and lemony flavor from Murray’s Cheese and horseradish jelly from Berkshire Berries vendor at the Union Square Greenmarket. New flavors. Much yum.

With her old eyes she sees better than most

We had our annual termite inspection of the NOLA house this week. Mom had hoped than Billy would come to do the inspection. He has done the inspections before and she likes him. When she first met him he had dreams of becoming a fireman, a dream that is now realized. But he still chases bugs when he’s not putting out fires.

Mom called me while she was sitting on the porch waiting for the inspector to arrive. At some point she announces that she sees the truck but she can’t see the person clearly yet. Then she happily announces that it is Billy after which she says something so innocent and pure and childlike: “I couldn’t remember if he was black or white.” These were words not of a failing mind but of a loving heart.
