Because Fred's partner Tom, went bowling in his league every Thursday evening, Fred would join us for dinner at my place. Both Dr. Bob and Ike live with me for a portion of each year. Bob has a place in Costa Rica and Ike's home is in Georgia. When the guys stay with me, my place is known as: "Motel 7 For Retired Musicians" This was one of those dinners.
