Peter found that a boy from another class in school lived nearby and wanted to ride his bike down to visit. I went with him to make sure everything was okay, and there in the yard was the boy's dad, a guy I met at the pub a few weeks back. He offered me a beer, and soon we were enjoying one of the rare warm and sunny evenings we've had far too few of this year. I rang up Pam to call her down, and soon the yard with filled with people for a barbeque. It was a fun and spontaneous evening, and Peter has made a new friend in the neighborhood.
