MIL comes to town
(cups by Gary Rith)
My mother-in-law graduated from Cornell, right here in Ithaca, 55 or more years ago, and she is visiting us for a couple of days. I won't say my mother-in-law is a party animal, but she is a whole lot of fun, esp. for a lady pushing 80. Or even if she was only pushing 30. I adore her.
Joe's Restaurant was here in the 30's, and it is still here. Different Joe, but still Joe's. In her freshman year, my MIL returned home at Christmas and told her father she had racked up 300 dollars in charges at Joe's (!!! a fortune!!! esp. in the late 1940s!) and her father told her to get a job....
We go to Joe's tonight.
