When Duty Calls

The four containers of cookies that we took up to College Boy for his birthday less than two weeks ago needed to be replenished, so since I didn't want anyone to accuse me of child neglect, my husband and I made a quick trip up to Cornell University in Ithaca, NY yesterday to make a delivery.













It was a nice day for a drive and walk around campus. We went to lunch at a wonderful Japanese restaurant in Collegetown. All of us had a different bento box lunch. Mine had shrimp and vegetable tempura, rice, California rolls, an Asian salad, and miso soup. The guys had chicken teriyaki and bulgogi. Everything was delicious.



College Boy seems to like Japanese food, so I may have to make him a Bento Box quilt for his high school graduation/going away to college gift next year.
P.S. Having lived in a small town for 12 years now, I was shocked at the parking prices on campus...in Wellsboro, it only costs a dime to park for an hour on Main Street, but on the college campus, a quarter only gets you ten minutes!

What a nice day you had! Hope you have more like that.

that is kind of pricey - what if you get stuck in a line and have to wait by time you get back to your car you will have owed $10 or whatever! Do they not have visitor parking?
I bet your son was glad to get a visit and the cookies.

I'll trade parking lots with you any day. Our local hospital and medical centre charge $3.75 per half hour or $15.00 per day. If the eye specialist keeps me waiting, as he usually does, it often costs me $11.25. There is a 10 minute grace period but I rarely make it out in time for that.

I think he will continue to be one of the best cared for college boys ever! Lucky him.
