Scrabble partners Scott and M.J. Saalman

Before Mom’s cancer, Dad and I bonded in the evening during kitchen table Scrabble wars. From the living room, Mom, unseen, cackled at “Two And A Half Men’s” rapid fire double entendres, causing me to close the kitchen door to focus better. Dad and I were happily lost in competition while Mom was happily lost in her favorite comedy.

All was good with the world.
