The Cross House
Previously, I wrote about Harold and Wilma, two of the most fabulous people I have ever known. After buying the Cross House I was eager for them to come and visit for I knew they would adore the house and that the three of us would be like kids let loose in a candy story. Sadly though, Wilma was injured shortly thereafter, and she later passed on. I felt as though a piece of my heart had been torn away.
Then, last fall, Harold contacted me about a visit.
“Could I stop by?”
YESYESYES, I replied!
Harold arrived with his daughter and her husband and we had a wonderful time. At lunch, we shared stories about Wilma and laughed and teared up.
A few weeks ago I heard from Harold again. “Could I stop by again, and with some friends?
It seems that Harold had been telling stories about his fall visit, and now his friends wanted a tour!
Well, whatever Harold wants is OK by me. Anything for Harold.
At last, we managed to get to lunch (at 4pm!). We went to Radius, and when I was asked what was good replied: “Really, everything. Really. But I know from experience that if I get the hot roast beef you will all say OH! I WISH I HAD ORDERED THAT!”
When the waitress took our order, everyone, save one, ordered the hot roast beef.
None were disappointed.
Laura ordered the Avocado Blackberry Salad (mixed petite lettuce, blackberries, sliced avocado, sliced almonds, and herbed tomatoes with lemon cucumber vinaigrette) and I must say it looked incredible.
When we all said goodbye before getting into our respective cars I gave Harold a looooong hug.
I love the guy.
