My Folks Return To Connecticut

My parents hopped a plane at Ft. Lauderdale Tuesday morning. A few hours later they stepped off here in Connecticut. Once again our house is the official hotel of the Harold and Betty Fox Tour of the Northeast.

I haven’t written about them being here because I hadn’t seen them a lot until today. Tuesday’s arrival was after I left for work. I worked yesterday too.

Today was the first day we could spend time together… though Steffie beat me to the punch. By the time I was up and at ’em, the three of them were out shopping.

Actually, that took some pressure off.

I don’t want to be a bad son, but there aren’t exactly a zillion places to take my parents. After all, they lived here for over 15 years.

We did manage to have a fun dinner, taking them to The Place in Guilford. That was a new experience. The Place is the outdoor restaurant where lobster and clams are cooked over a wood burning grill.

It was great. My parents enjoyed themselves. I’m now convinced lobster is meant to be cooked that way. I need a second mortgage on the house.

Tomorrow we’re taking the train to New York City. Pray for the good weather I’ve predicted.

  1. Tomorrow I take my parents to Bradley and send them back to Tucson … they’ve been here for 10 days. A week of that we spent up in Maine (where we’re all originally from), eating lobster the way it was meant to be cooked: in a smoldering pile of seaweed on the beach. 🙂 The Place does it well and I love going there, but it’s not an old-fashioned Down East clambake. 🙂

    Enjoy your time with your parents!
