Signs of Home
There are certain things that instantly remind you of home. These are especially welcome when you’ve been away for a long time. So you can imagine Anne’s nostalgia when we came upon a display of Drakes snack foods in a market in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey (not yet New England, but we're getting there!). You don’t get Drakes in the south. Yodels, Ring Dings, Devil Dogs, Yankee Doodles, and Funny Bones. I love them all, but limited myself to a box of Funny Bones. I savored one with a cup of tea that evening. Chris just doesn’t appreciate them in the same way, but that just leaves more for me.
