Several things tasted good yesterday, and a breakfast waffle this morning was better than I expected. I'm planning on two lamb chops to celebrate the winter solstice at 6:03 PM local time tonight, and that should be a good test of how much of my taste has returned. Along with a small glass of a no expectations red wine with dinner there will be a glass of porto to end the evening. I believe there is a small wedge of Stilton cheese in the house to go along with the porto.
So - at 6:03 PM a toast to all of you who read this, and a remembrance of good friends and good dogs who aren't here to enjoy the celebration.
