Awakened today to the sound of Son Guy on the telephone, talking to some guy named John. Several weeks ago, Guy acquired a laptop, but he had no way to activate it. Last night, using the charger from our camera, he thought he could make it work. "John" called Guy immediately he turned the computer on. He told Guy the computer had been his, to come down to the Holiday Inn on Van Ness, and he would show Guy how to use it. So off he went before one o'clock, with some misgivings on both our parts.
During the afternoon, a certain euphoria overtook me during my usual stint on the computer. I am completely alone so seldom. But around five, I began to worry about him.
When Son Jason paid a visit at eight o'clock, Guy was not yet back. He went out and bought a few groceries for me. On his return, we had a good talk as I recounted to him, almost word for word, the visit young Laversa had made last night, on her birthday. Turned out that Grandma had not stopped off at their place, and so, he had not seen her.
I had prepared a Mother's Day Card for Londera, and we both signed it. [Then, I forgot to give it to him when he left!] Jason says that if he can get some containers, he will bring down some of his cooking because he can't eat it all, and Londera won't eat any of it.
Just as I was filling with anxiety over Guy's disappearance, he sauntered in full of a wonderful mood. "John" is a former engineer who lives with his wife downtown, and though he only had a short time to show Guy how to use the computer, he asked him back later for pizza. Then, leaving the hotel, Guy ran into the hauntin Khia and Monkey Wrench the Wonder Dog. They spent the day in the Park until just an hour before.
Guy phoned John, picked a couple of things, and went off for his pizza.
Macresarf1 would write no more this day.
