Quickie after unfortunate ending to World Series game, which we started watching at the home of my elementary school friend whom I've seen on Zoom nearly every week for the past year but haven't seen in person in ages. Her husband's mother is visiting, and since she went to the same high school as my parents, they thought it would be fun for us all to have dinner together and ordered Chinese food for everyone. My father brought his high school yearbook and Paul made a Frankenstein pistachio cheesecake for dessert (not knowing that my friend's older son would be home from medical school, nor that he's allergic to pistachios).
We looked at lots of old photos and talked about a lot of sports -- these are the friends who throw the Super Bowl party we've attended for many years -- though none of us is happy about how this World Series is going. Earlier in the day, Paul and I went to Great Falls to see how high the water was after the storm, though it wasn't as bad as we've seen after snowmelt. Here are some photos of our evening, will show off turtles at Great Falls after Halloween -- blessed Samhain if this is a spiritual holiday for you, and enjoy trick-or-treating and/or booze if it's more secular!
