They’re Here!

July 29th, 2020 § 0 comments

Yes, happy days are here again. HG/BSK’s daughter, brilliant Lesley R., and her gifted husband, Profesore Massimo R., have arrived at the Prince Edward Island paradise they share with HG/BSK. There had been much concern. Canada’s borders to the United States are closed (Obviously, there are exceptions). PEI has strict regulations for people coming into the Island (Arrivals have to self-quarantine for 14 days and this is checked by the authorities). That’s why the population (unlike the people of the USA) has suffered slight damage from the coronavirus pandemic. After stern grilling at the Canadian and PEI borders, they were successful in their entry to a peaceful democracy. And, the feasting has begun: Big briny shucked oysters; BSK’s soups; local mussels with linguine (Every element was perfect including the pasta cooked by Lesley to the perfect al dente point). BSK prepared sparkling green salads served with splendid cheeses. Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir added to the merriment. Yes, there’s nothing like famiglia. There was some news from granddaughters Sofia and Arianna R. (They are staying at HG/BSK’s New Mexico home). Toby, The Wonder Dog, was sprayed by a skunk. Sofia saved him from a previous encounter, but this time Toby’s intrepid curiosity resulted in stinkiness. A bath in tomato juice and a shower worked. Toby now has his usual pleasant aroma. HG/BSK miss the rambunctious little fellow.
