To update my previous post:
My son's roommate, Jude left yesterday and returned to college. We hated to see them leave, but summer school starts really soon so they needed to get back. Jude was a lot of fun and a laugh a minute, but he was just a bit restless here. I think he likes hanging with the younger crowd and the excitement of a big city.
And to answer Twinville's comment about our "good healthy, home cooked meals being a nice improvement over those college kibbles". . . . well, this is what Jude liked to eat while he was staying here in the country--this step in our den, among other items made of wood. I'm not sure what that says about my cooking. Maybe he's vegetarian.
