Wednesday, Oct 17

so my day started with a call from Screech informing me he has a mother load of shitakes!  Then Chesle came in with two huge bags of clean beautiful corn. I knew right then and there it would be a great day : )  Even last night was cool – Sara, Erica, Margo and Shelly joined me at Urban Ministries of Durham and we prepared a fabulous meal for the guests …. roasted paprika chicken, rice and arugula with herbed butter, lentils, salad and fresh baked chocolate chip cookies.  As usual, finding my way to the mission is no problem – however finding my way home in Durham’s one way streets is always a chore.  And last night I had Nick Meyer’s spirit in the car guiding me (like he had done so many times in the past).  Here’s a shout out to my buddy Nick – gone but not forgotten!
