In an e-mail to her friends, David F.
and Celeste T., Deborah A. sent an
invitation. Ms. A. resides in “senior
housing” in Monona, a small munici-
pality completely surrounded by
Wisconsin’s capital city of Madison.
Mr. F. and Ms. T. live in the Village
of Fjord, Wisconsin, about 30 miles
to the north. The Village of DeForest,
Wisconsin, is about halfway between
Monona and Fjord.

Apartment inspection today. They are checking for hazards - matches, loose cords, slippery rugs. I use it as my several times a year opportunity to purge, organize, tidy.

So... If you are in town on Tues or Thursday, this is a good week to stop by for tea/coffee in my temporarily presentable place.

Wishing you a good day!

We would enjoy seeing you, Deb, but I don't think we have Madison trips planned for this week. Funny coincidence, though:  C. and I are scheduled to meet with Dad and a Monona lawyer in DeForest on Thursday. We could send the lawyer by to have tea with you on his way back to his office.

Even before meeting you, the lawyer would probably infer that you are a sophisticated person because you associate with me and Celeste and we did not clutch our chests and cry out "O, Lord have mercy!," when he announced his hourly rate of $325.

Have a swell Monday.
Love, Dave
