I found all my notes for the NC story including the conflict - and its resolution. Then I wrote close to 1,000 words before dinner.
Dinner was a group effort with amazing women, one husband grilled squash and two types of steak. We ate the food, drank the wine and enjoyed the human company. I may have edited a friend's email for awkward sentence structure.
Father's Day with my dad and I in separate countries was weird but he k.ows I love him no matter the geography. He's never cared much about Hallmark Holidays. Still, it's nice to be told you're appreciated. He really is.
