I moved to the Washington DC on business for a few years back in the 80s. I have stayed in touch with a few of my favorite people from that time. So, before leaving NYC, I made a trip down to see my good friends Jim and Jeff. They left DC about a decade ago and are currently living in Danville, Virginia. They gave me a walking tour of Duke University and Danville, and they fed me some spectacular dishes. Jeff is a gourmet cook and both Jim and Jeff are passionate about history, culture, and the fine arts. Their home is a living museum where each original painting, sculpture, Oriental rug, or other artifact was carefully selected and has an accompanying story which they will share if prompted.

I also said goodbye to my aunts and uncle. I missed the red Love event of the night though. There was a little get together at Jerry Meadors place. Since I missed the event, I will try to get a picture of Jerry's creation, the North Theatre, on the way out of town tomorrow and post it on the site. It will definitely be a worthy future travel destination. Tomorrow, Bean and I will drive to northern Virginia. We are going to stay with Bean's old roomate, Sally, for the night and she is going to give us a ride ... read more
