Dinner With Friends

Our friend Asa Faith helped edit the re-release of my book Remembering Big last month. When she does work for me, it's on the barter system. For her work on this project, I paid her with a stash of Heineken beer and a meal at the Cyprus Inn in Tuscaloosa. 
This afternoon Jilda and I, along with her sister Pat, headed south to Tuscaloosa. We stopped on the way to pick up Asa Faith. On the hour-ride down, we had a large time telling jokes, funny stories, and we did book and movie reviews.
The Cyprus Inn is one of those special places that has it all. They server remarkable food, they have great service, and the ambiance is incredible.
It's situated on the banks of the Warrior River and every table has a view.
The older I get, the more important celebrations have become. Not only were we celebrating a milestone (completion of the editing phase) of a project, but we were also celebrating friendship and all that implies.
