Deep freeze has arrived on the Island. Itís cold enough during the day even with sunshine to keep me inside, but I brave the night time temps in the teens with windchills of I-donít-want-to-know in order to have dinner with Sparky. One of my fatherís friends, heís on the Island on business. Iíve not seen Sparky since the January Picnic when I brought G to Michigan to meet the family. I think itís the first time Iíve had a conversation with Sparky that wasnít talking shop about computers and security. A nice, adult dinner out is just what I needed.
