The UPS box should arrive today. If is does not arrive, please let me know.
I hope the cookies are not stale. I baked them the morning that I mailed the box. If you want them to soften, remember to use my trick. Put a 1/2 slice of bread in with them overnight and they should be fine.
Dad and I had dinner with Oprah’s boyfriend, Stedman last night. It was quite interesting. A US senator was there and I sat next to a state rep. His speech after dinner was in a big auditorium and your dad got a good seat for me. I didn’t know that Stedman grew up in a poor household with 2 disabled brothers in a small town. He has done well for himself! The main point in his speech reminded me of the Rocky movie. When life knocks you down you need to keep getting up and moving forward.
And just why would my parents have dinner with Stedman? Well, because my dad is a member of the Black Businessmen’s Association in their small city. Makes perfect sense.
Past highlights from this yearly event include the time Roberta Flack brought my dad onstage to dance with her for an entire song, him making his best white dad effort, and being called out by Bill Cosby. They kinda stand out.
