Here I am in Topeka, Kansas. It has been a long day of travel after several lovely days in Greenville. The best part of Greenville was — as usual — the Spoonbread Room of the Poinsett Hotel. It is good and it’s served in a beautiful room with sunlight streaming in the windows. Every dish is heavenly. Alex, Kitty, Coco, Bob Noah and I ate there yesterday. I enjoyed every minute. Every morsel.
Then Bob and I walked the streets of Greenville just taking in the intensely lush friendliness of the passers by.
Then, off to a swim meet which I found by accident. The swimmers were top notch and the setting was space age with sophisticated electronic timing systems. But it was a bit damp in there so we left. More power to those strong, dedicated young swimmers, though.
