Now I went into this with preconceived notions. I don't know anyone who thinks the Boston Strangler was Disalvo. You could have knocked me over with a feather when I realized this guy believed it.

So we followed it up with dinner at the Chart House. I wasn't as impressed as the last time. My potatoes were lumpy, there was a fan blowing on us the whole time and the molten lava cake was so-so. I was cold, but Jen was happy. People who know me know that I favor the cold, being a New Englander. Jen puts me to shame. I wear shorts until it snows and skirts all year round. Jen want to move to Greenland. SB describes any room where I have control of the thermostat as a meat locker. In Jen's house I put an afghan on my knees.
Then it was home to a call from my son, the anarchist. He is always entertaining. My sisters and I are going down in November for Tom's 25th birthday. And no Bob, there will be no interacting with the farm animals (or animals of any kind).
