I am in Michigan visiting my parents. Last Friday, my father received the third of six high intensity radiation treatments scheduled for cancer. He has been battling various forms of cancer for 15 years! That same day, my mother went in to have a small blemish on her nose examined. It turned out also to be cancer, and she was there for 4 hours, ultimately having a quarter-size piece of her nose completely removed.
So you may be wondering what did we do on that same Friday evening? Well, we had 40 people over for drinks and appetizers of course! (All four of their daughters were in town, and it was “show and tell.”)
Did I mention that my dad is 82 and my mom is 81?
Some would say we are all nuts, but my parents said, “It’ll be easier to just have the party than to call all the guests, cancel the catering, cancel the bartenders and cancel the car parkers.” And a lovely time was had by all.
