BR and I had a delightfully social Saturday evening. After getting a late start to the day, our friends Tad and Susan stopped by for dinner. We had pork cutlets, green beans, and jalapeno corn bread. A fantastic meal, and fantastic company.

While we were on the porch chatting, we met the new neighbors, Elaine and C.J. A delightful couple with two of the sweetest dogs you'll ever meet. Both C.J. and I work for software companies based in Silicon Valley, and it was nice to "geek out" for a bit.

And to cap off the evening, we stopped by a party at our neighbors across the street. The wife works for the state department of Family and Protective Services, and at the end of a very rough week involving a child death, she and her co-workers were gathering to blow off steam in a big way. It did us good to see the bond they shared, making the burden bearable.

Blowing off steam in a social setting is so important in that type of work! Being in a social setting is important to all of us, no matter what the circumstances.

Hi Steve, Hi BR,

Saturday sounds great fun, friends over for dinner and meeting your neighbours and then the party.

Lovely stuff.

Sounds like the plan to socialize is going well.

Hope this week is good for you both.

Take care of each other.
