No News is Good News

Moms Landrith was cranky back there in Florida today because her girls were *forcing* her to eat chocolate candy and cashew nuts, not to mention nutritious citrus drinks.

Cranky is good. Cranky is *alert.*

So no midnight phone calls.

michael,

years ago, in the early 1980s, my grandfather lived with us. he lived until 96. by the time he came to live with us, he was fully blind.

one of his huge joys (as well as mine, too!) was going to this italian restaraunt called cafe roma. despite his blindness, he would take much time to ready himself - bath, shave, put on his best clothes.

i was too young to understand what was happening but i was able to understand that something odd was happening - why would a blind man be so vain? and my dad, that wise soul, would pull me aside gently and say something to the effect of, "david, with grandpa, vanity is good. it means he cares."

indeed, vanity, at times, is good. so is cranky.
