Ann O., for a wonderful window of time, was my ULI boss, always my mentor, and quickly my friend. Our stay in Ann and Bill’s Chevy Chase home was part of the last, happily magical normal month with Bing as we finished sailing the Chesapeake and moved through Washington, D.C. on to Williamsburg. We have shared many exhilarating, as well as tough, times together over a number of years.
So having her in town on business tonight and over to dinner with Sandra K. reminded all three of us of “the good ole times” together. My garden was in a “sweet spot” with heritage “Black Krim,” “Better Boy,” and yellow pear tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, Anaheim chilies, and red onions becoming gazpacho. Our beverage was a cucumber, mint, and basil soda, and we had to have zucchini bread.
The evening went by far too quickly.
