Today she and I got together for a leisurely lunch at a restaurant not far from my house. It was great spending some time with her. Meredith was a joy to have in class (as were her two sisters), and she has grown up to be a great person. I take pride in thinking that I might have, in some small measure, inspired her interest in travel and foreign languages.
After lunch, since I live nearby, and since she has read about my garden on this blog, we went to my house for a tour of the garden (which is still a work in progress).
Meredith is a bit of a dinosaur, as am I, in that she has never been interested in having a smart phone. She recently needed to purchase one for work, and her very first "selfie" was this picture of the two of us.
I was glad to see you again, Meredith, and I hope that I may once again be your "tour guide" in Mexico. Mexico City is calling to you and Chuck.
