We are one year, and a little bit more, into a seriously empty-nested life.
A few days ago we had a surprise phone call from M. His only agenda was chit-chat, and he asked what I was doing. "Knitting a baby blanket," I told him.
Then he asked what his dad was doing. "Watching a PBS show about Pennsylvania diners," I said.
And then there was a l-o-n-g pause. "Did I call the house" asked M, "or did I call the old folks' home?"
