…Here’s a picture of my Mom opening her birthday present from me: a portrait of Lehigh. Her actual birthday is today, but we got together yesterday and had fish and chips at the Atlantic Avenue Chipshop. The family being from New England , we’re all pretty picky about our F&C. The horrid practice of breading fish to deep fry it is a constant source of sorrow for me.
Mom liked the drawing, and she and my sister and I all liked the deep fried mac and cheese. I’m very glad to get the chance to spend more time with my mother. I can even tease her about voting Republican.
