July 29th, 2012: Before heading to KC, I had called my Vermont friend, Gail Freidin. She arranged for me to stay with her childhood friends, Todi Hughes and her daughter.
Being in KC with the Hughes was like being back in my hometown of Ruxton, MD.
Including having dinner with Gail’s mother, Joyce Byers, at Bishop Spencer Retirement Community. It was the first time I’d worn a skirt in (at least) 2 months. A lot like visiting Aunt Jo at Blakehurst.
Sculptures on the grounds of the Nelson Museum of Art, a few blocks from the Hughes’ home.
