It has been quite a ride for the last month. First were the Paperhand Puppet shows in successive weekends, and then the Burlington Times story broke about our humble little endeavor. We have been plastered with folks, and we have been seeing return visitors from both exposures. Now, here we are at home for two days in a row taking care of things and getting some rest and spending some warm time with my mom and her husband (and my friend) John.
John has come down to see our doctor after being run through the conventional medicine ringer. His deterioration has been reversed since visiting here with Dr. Mark over the last few weeks, and he is well on his way to a full mending.
When we met our friends Doug and Claire at the Lantern last night for dinner, we got a sweet parking spot because of the handicapped parking sticker on John and Mom's vehicle. John exclaimed he was happy to say that privilege will pass soon, as he'll be too mobile to need the thing.
I can't say enough about what Dr. Mark Eisen has done for my dear 77-year-old friend. Suffice it to say he has a new lease on life where hope had been lost. Cameron and I have been in much need of some recuperative time as well, and John's patient and committed effort to get well based on his treatment regimen has inspired us to do the same.
Next, though, we'll be readying for a new and busy weekend, as the Chapel Hill Herald will soon display their own article on this strange effort to which we and you are giving life. Look for another expansion to our menu that will extend the dinner menu again. We are rested and ready and inspired by our friend John and my grateful mother. Menu additions begin this Friday.
