We Visit the City
A few days of anniversary wanderings, combined with a business meeting, found us in the city - not our natural habitat. I managed to point to the ground under a lot of tall, modern buildings & told Nancy about the great things that used to be there. For some reason, she tires of that after only 48-72 hours. No damned stamina, that's her problem. Still, I ought to be entertaining, so I began to point out the few old buildings which remain, telling stories of women friends who lived here and there, in the days of my youth - in this turret or behind that leaded window - and she was still less than enthralled. Hard one to figure out, she is.
