Let’s Eat Home

As Terri and I were enjoying another of her fine meals on the deck, we talked about how self-isolation has changed our daily lives. Terri was pleased to say that she is quite content with staying home: tending to her garden, caring for Bebop, and being with me more. I loved hearing that she is the happiest she has been since retirement.

The next morning, while listening to KCSM (my favorite streaming jazz station), I heard the song, Let’s Eat Home, for the first time. Rosemary Clooney said in song what Terri was saying at lunch!

Enjoy the song and your life where it is.

This band is awesome. I had to search a bit to find the personnel. That time for jazz was incredible. At first I thought Dick Hyman. Released 1994, so the players were seasoned veterans of a different age of jazz.
 
Gardening in retirement is a sweet idea.
