Jeni came over from Chandler, AZ, for a long weekend. Her main reason for coming was a very special event. California State University, Northridge, where Jeni got her Master’s Degree and taught classes, invited her to give the commencement address for the graduating class in Education. It was a thrill for our new Dr. Jeni, and the address was very well received. She even got to wear all of her Doctor’s regalia.
On Friday she came to visit the invalid and bring some sunshine into his dull life. It was great to see her, because I had missed the trip Linda took over to AZ due to preparations for my hip surgery. We had a great visit, talked about the ongoing remodel here at the condo, visited a furniture store and a lighting store, and had a great dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, which is turning into Linda’s favorite restaurant.
We then packed up Jeni’s little bug with her new barbeque. We found a Weber Q on Craig’s list, and Linda did her magic by cleaning it like new and painting the lid with special high heat paint. Now she can grill all those vegetables like Bobby Flay.
It really raised my spirits to spend time with my little “pumpkin”. I guess it’s my turn now to go over to HOT AZ to visit her.
