It was a very, merry Christmas at the Fry Lodge. We had a relaxed morning opening gifts and drinking coffee at Fry Lodge West Village. Kristine got a framed map of Seattle. I got original, framed abstract art from Henry and Ruby (by Henry and Ruby). And the kids got, well, everything. We’re very fortunate. The best gift is perspective, and I hope we never lose that. We reminisced throughout the day about our visit to New York last Christmas, before we knew we’d be moving here. What a year it has been.
In the afternoon, we took the subway to Brooklyn to see the Eitings, who had prepared a special feast of the beast. The cousins thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company, as usual. Merry Christmas to the Fry Lodge Faithful. We love you all.
